Jimmy Simpson's first guests at Bow Lake traveled in by horseback. They came to experience a part of the world that few had seen. Hospitality was a tent for sleeping in, wool blankets for warmth, and meals cooked on an open fire.
In today's modern world, there are still only a few basics that we all need at the end of the day: shelter for the night, a hearty meal, and a warm bed. At Num-Ti-Jah Lodge we truly believe in that disappearing virtue - the simple life. We have 16 rustic mountainview and lakeview rooms to stretch out in, hot showers any time, thick duvets to crawl under, and no phones or TV in the room to interrupt your thoughts or peace of mind.
Our lakeview rooms face the turquoise waters of Bow Lake, where the overhanging ice of Crowfoot and Bow Glaciers hint at the magnitude of the Wapta Icefield which lays behind the peaks of Crowfoot and Thompson. Bow Glacier falls, the birthplace of the Bow River, brings crisp clean water into the lake. The glacial silt carved by the Bow Glacier gives the water it's famous bright-blueish hue.
Should you desire a little something special, it would be our pleasure to have some sparkling wine and seasonal treats prepared for you and awaiting at check-in. Ask for our Romance on Arrival package. Reservations are recommended for dinner, so please let us know if you have a special occasion we might assist you in celebrating.
If you are looking for rest and relaxation, and a digital detox of sorts, look no further. We look forward to having you as our guest at the lodge.
