Why get married at Buffalo Mountain Lodge? Let's take a look at what's so special about this venue, shall we?

Where is Buffalo Mountain Lodge?

The Lodge is located on Tunnel Mountain, which was once called Sleeping Buffalo Mountain. Just a 3-minute drive to downtown Banff, it's an accessible location for your guests to arrive.

The nearest international airport is Calgary Airport, which is a 1.5-hour drive.

Located close to the town, the Lodge is tucked away in its oasis of green. The Lodge is also close to the river, making for an exceptional backdrop for your wedding photos.

One of the Best Rustic Wedding Venues in Banff

The beauty of Buffalo Mountain Lodge weddings is outstanding. There is enough space for 108 guests to sleep, and the on-site hot tub is a luxurious touch.

Should you choose to marry on a day the sun is shining, you can say I do directly in front of the mountain. The meadow on Tunnel Mountain Reservoir makes for an epic outdoor wedding.

Prefer not to gamble with the weather? The indoor options are:

The Strathcona Room

If you want an intimate wedding, this could be perfect. The upper floor of the main Lodge has a spectacular balcony and giant windows looking out on the mountains. You can fit up to 48 people in this venue.

Wainwright Room

For a slightly bigger party of up to 70, you can hire the Wainwright room. Washed with plenty of natural light, this room was made for dreamy, cozy, romantic, rustic weddings.

Wapiti Longhouse

If a less intimate and more grand affair is your style, then the Wapiti Longhouse will be perfect. You can fit as many as 99 people in this space split over two levels.

The huge fireplace and stunning ceiling give this space the ultimate wow factor. In addition, guests can get a post-ceremony drink at the wine cellar below and sip it on the vast terrace with mountain views.

Elopements at Buffalo Mountain Lodge

If you prefer something a lot more low-key, Buffalo Mountain Lodge elopements are also a possibility. The team is very accommodating and will go out of their way to create a package that works best for you.

What About the Food at Buffalo Moutain Lodge?

One of the most positive elements people review about the Buffalo Mountain Lodge is the food.
