Our residence of choice for our stay in Jasper National Park was Patricia Lake Bungalows. It is located on the Pyramid Lake Road just past the riding stables and just before Pyramid Lake Resort. It is off the main road and beside the prettiest little lake, named after my pretty wife. We have been here about 8 times over the years and the place just feels like home…..our home….in the mountains.
In order to be part of the reopening, hotels and resorts had to implement strict protocols, particularly as they involve cleaning. The checkin was to be virtual. Every cabin was sanitized well in advance, the checkin papers posted on the door and the key left in the lock.
Our home away from home was beautiful and as the first occupants after reopening, we would be very comfortable here.
Now it was time for us to set our protocols to make us feel more comfortable. Patty was the queen of infection control in her career, so we were in good hands.
We left our outside footwear at the door, put on house shoes and got to work. Surfaces were wiped again, before anything else was brought in from the car. I did manage to snap a few interior pix before this process began.
The good news was the equipped kitchen, which meant we could heat and eat most of meals in our sanitized, controlled environment. Being a cabin, we were also assured that we would be able to keep physical distance from the other guests.
Our first 3 nights were fairly uncrowded and we enjoyed the quiet and lack of crowding. By Thursday afternoon, we could see things changing, as more and more people arrived.
We were sad to leave on our last day but very satisfied with our overall experience. We hope to be back in the fall.
