When you’re spending time exploring the vast Canadian wilds, you need flexibility, and the Falcon Crest Lodge by Clique gives it to you. Each room comes with a barbecue (on a balcony or patio) so that you can grill up a storm if you get home late or don’t fancy hitting the on-site restaurant. There are other helpful touches for busy travelers too. A 24/7 concierge assists with booking tours or restaurants, and two year-round hot tubs, overlooking the mountains, are open until 10:30pm for a pre-bedtime soak.

This clapboard country inn, tucked among mature trees in central Canmore, oozes coziness. Named after the wife of Canada’s first prime minister (who, incidentally, also has a nearby mountain attributed to her), the inn has homey rooms with a bit of an old-world vibe. Think wooden floors, gold-framed oil paintings and printed bedspreads, along with in-room fireplaces. Settle down in the lounge with a loose-leaf tea and play your way through the collection of board games.

Whichever size you choose, you’ll get a full kitchen and a barbecue – perfect for self-caterers.

Of course, a visit to the pub downstairs is an essential part of a stay – tuck into honey-garlic wings, mandarin cranberry salad or that most Canadian of dishes, poutine (cheese curds, fries and beef gravy).
