Chateau Lake Louise

Missing Image

The sumptuous setting of Chateau Lake Louise

“As God is my judge, I never in all my explorations saw such a matchless scene.”
Thomas Wilson on discovering what is today known as ‘Lake Louise’ in 1882. The Stoney Indians used to call it the ‘Lake of Little Fishes.’

‘I first came to the Chateau Lake Louise in 1926 with my parents…The interior was spacious and charming with the great plate glass windows in the lounge which opened onto that marvellous vista of lake and mountains. It was a friendly place too. The lake and valley were still in deep shadow, but the surrounding peaks, all I had climbed, were bathed in golden, rosy light. I was seized by an indescribable ecstasy, filled with the joy of conquest. They were all mine - my beautiful, private world of mountains. Yet at the same time, I felt how infinitesimal I was. It was an unforgettable experience.’
From a letter written by Georgia Engelhard Cromwell, niece of famed photographer Arthur Stieglitz and artist Georgia O’Keefe.
