Lake O'Hara Lodge is a welcoming, personalized and comfortable getaway for folks looking for a great escape — a respite from the busy world where guests can relax and enjoy all that the mountains have to offer. We provide cozy accommodations and unforgettable dining experiences all in our incredible remote location, with some of the best hiking in the Canadian Rockies at our doorstep.
The lodge kitchen provides complete in-house food service for our guests and staff. This includes preparation and plating of exquisite guest meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner, washing dishes and pots, baking goodies, keeping the kitchen clean, preparing staff meals and keeping track of everyone's dietary restrictions.

Working in the kitchen combines a mix of creativity and refinement. Guest dinners at the lodge are a set menu on a two-week rotation, which gives the opportunity to perfect recurring dishes over the course of the summer.

The lodge kitchen is an excellent place to hone your kitchen skills, no matter your level of experience.
