Weekend at the Chateau Lake Louise

This year for my husbands Christmas party we were lucky enough to stay at the Chateau Lake Louise, in Lake Louise Alberta. The Chateau for many years has been voted one of the worlds top ten hotels. For us it is a 2 hour drive from Calgary.

I was nervous about spending the weekend without first inquiring about gluten free options. But working a lot right now, I just didn’t have the time to call. So off we went.

The evening that we arrived we headed to their German Restaurant so check out the menu. Before we even sat down, we were asked about any dietary issues. I explained celiacs and they assured me that I would have no trouble with the food. A basket of warm gluten free bread arrived for myself, and the rest of our meal was superb. Both my husband and I had the tenderloin and it melted in our mouths.

Everywhere in the hotel they accommodated me. I was very impressed.

Here are some photos of our stay. Of course a lot of them are of the food!

A few of us got together and had the high tea on Saturday afternoon. I received my own platter of gluten free goodies.

At the café I picked up a flourless orange cake-yum!

  1. That is so awesome that the Chateau was so accommodating! I really love it when you don’t have to explain what gluten is.

    If you’re ever in Victoria, the Empress Hotel also does a pretty decent gluten free high tea. Pricey but delicious! 🙂

  3. I actually met you in line, at Lake Louise when I was oogling the flourless cake they offered.

    Great Blog!

  4. Louise-thanks for remembering me. I remember meeting you too in the line at the cafe. I am glad you enjoy my blog!
