Absolutely fantastic location right in the centre of Banff and close to everything!Cabin was really cosy with all the amenities you could want and really comfortable beds. Thanks to Katrin for making us feel welcome with detailed directions and information. So nice to stay somewhere with such a rich Banff history! Complex was quiet (you'd hardly know you were in the town centre) and it was really convenient to have off-street car parking too. Would definitely recommend Beaver Cabins to others and would love to stay again!

Cozy, comfortable, super-clean cabin - perfect for 2 or 3 people, perhaps a little small for 4. Basic furnishings and amenities, but more than adequate for short stays. One block away from the action, but quiet and peaceful. Yard with small gazebo is a nice bonus - a calm oasis after a day of hiking/exploring/activity-ing. Would stay again.

This cabin is very cramped, the main bedroom has a curtain rather than a door due to space, the second bedroom is only accessed through the first bedroom, and the bathroom door catches on the opposite wall. It is also run very much as a business, so do not expect the personal touch you often get with airbnb properties. It was, however, clean on arrival, we had no problems with check-in (key in lock box at front door, with code given a couple of days before) and the location is fantastic.

Response from Katrin:
Thank you for your review of the Elk Cabin. The Elk is a two-bedroom cabin with adjoining bedrooms that’s great for families or traveling couples that are comfortable passing through the first bedroom to access the second bedroom. The Elk is one of our mid-sized cabins with a total area of 430 sq feet (40 m sq). As with many historic buildings (or in our case cabins) there are quirks with the layout that we simply can’t avoid. We are sorry that you had trouble with the bathroom door and wish we could fix that for future guests, but the design prohibits such a change. If more space is required we would recommend our guests have a look at the Moose Cabin, Fox Cabin or Cougar Basement Suite as they have a little more space than the Elk. As owners we are on-site seven days a week and have had great interactions with our guests since taking over the property in January 2017. It’s been a wonderful experience owing such a beautiful property in the heart of downtown Banff. Unfortunately, we don’t get a chance to meet all our guests, but should anything come up we are easily reachable by phone or through the Airbnb App. Our contact information is provided as an arrival package that we send through Airbnb and is also found in our welcome letters in each cabin. Sincerely, Katrin and J.P.

Perfectly located for a stay in Banff. Super close to town, literally only a couple minute walk! Pretty small but had everything we needed for a great stay. Would recommend and definitely stay here again!

Really enjoyed our stay at Elk cabin. Great location, check in and check it were easy and it was very warm and cosy. The bathroom was quite small, but manageable. Katrin's communication was friendly and efficient. Would stay here again!
