Pocahontas Cabins in Jasper: 10 Reasons to Book

Pocahontas Cabins are some of the best places to stay in Jasper National Park. They offer visitors to the park a relaxing place to stay outside of the hustle of downtown Jasper.

As Pocahontas Cabins are located 30 minutes from the town of Jasper and are cute and quaint wooden cabins, they aren’t for everyone.

However, if you are looking for a more secluded stay and to step back into nature, Pocahontas Cabins are among the nicest hotels to stay in Jasper.

Why Should You Stay at Pocahontas Cabins?


Pocahontas Cabins are Some of the Cutest Jasper Cabins

There aren’t many cabins in Jasper, but out of all of them, Pocahontas Cabins are definitely some of the most desirable. These log cabins are ones you would expect to see in the Canadian Rockies.

The exterior of the cabins are photo-worthy and provide plenty of space to relax. While the insides are cozy and comfortable. Most of the cabins have a kitchenette, a couch with a TV, and a fireplace. While some of the larger cabins have things like a full kitchen and a full living area.


If You Enjoy Winter You’ll Love it Here

While Pocahontas Cabins are fantastic in the summer, they truly shine in the winter. Starting in November, the Canadian Rockies are going to get very cold. These cold temperatures will last well into April. It’s a time when staying in a cozy log cabin with a fireplace sounds the most intriguing.

I love seeing these log cabins in the winter completely covered in snow with elk roaming nearby. The best part is Pocahontas Cabins lower their rates drastically during the winter months. So if you’re looking for a deal, head here between late October and June.


Pocahontas Cabins are Pet Friendly

Pocahontas Cabins are some of the best pet friendly hotels in Jasper. It’s great to bring the pets here since each cabin is an individual building rather than a traditional hotel room. A pet fee of $25 fee per night applies.


Pocahontas Cabins are Close to Miette Hot Springs

Pocahontas Cabins are located at the intersection of Miette Road and Highway 16, with Miette Hot Springs being only a 25-minute drive away. The town of Jasper is just a 30-minute drive away, perfect for getting more into nature.

While this location may not be perfect for everyone, it certainly has its upsides. Bring away from town is appealing to some visitors. If you want to walk outside your cabin with not many people around, this place is for you. Because of its remote location, you may even stand a chance at seeing more Canadian Rockies wildlife.

Miette Hot Springs take most people almost an hour to reach as most hotels are downtown; however, by staying at Pocahontas Cabins, you’ll be some of the closest to the hot springs!


Yet are Just 30 Minutes from Downtown Jasper

There are some negative reviews of Pocahontas Cabins noting that the location is far from the main sights in Jasper, and these are fair assessments. Compared to other cabins like Pyramid Lake Resort, these cabins are quite far from the Jasper Restaurants and many lakes.

However, at just 30 minutes, you are never too far away from anything, and I actually find the remoteness of the location a positive. If you are traveling to Jasper from Edmonton, they will cut your drive time by 30 minutes. When you’re in the mood for a nice beer don’t fear – Folding Mountain Brewery is just a short drive away.

If you forget something in town, you don’t have to worry either, as Pocahontas Cabins offer an on-site mini-market with prepackaged meals as well. There’s also free WiFi in the main lodge but don’t expect it to work too well.

Because of its quiet location away from town, you stand a chance at seeing more wildlife around the cabins. Keep your eye out for wandering deer, elk, bighorn sheep, and moose. In the summer, you might even see a grizzly, while in the winter, an elusive lynx may make its way through the property (if this happens, consider yourself extremely lucky).
