Away from the ordinary Banff hotels, Buffalo Mountain Lodge lies on the gentle slopes of Tunnel Mountain, which native people called "sleeping buffalo". The Main Lodge complements its natural setting with square timber, post and beam construction, and high open ceilings. Decor pays tribute to old-world craftsmanship, from custom made cherry, pine and bent-willow furnishings to copper and glass light fixtures. Simple, elegant design is a hallmark of the resort, and symbolizes the lifestyle at the Lodge.


Buffalo Mountain Lodge is located on Tunnel Mountain Road.
