The Douglas Fir Resort: Taking the hassle out of your holiday!
The Douglas Fir Resort and Chalets has been catering to families since it began welcoming visitors to Banff in 1946. Nowadays, with 55 years of experience ‘up its sleeve,’ it is very safe to say that the resort knows its business!
With great attention to detail, the Douglas Fir Resort has incorporated a large variety of amenities and services to cater to all of our guests’ wants and needs – everything from our breakfast packages pre-delivered to your room, to the waterslides and play-zone have been designed to ensure that you and your family have a fun, relaxing and hassle-free family holiday.
One of the of greatest advantages of staying with the Douglas Fir Resort is access to the conveniently located, privately owned ‘Chalet Grocery & Laundromat’ and ‘Tunnel Mountain Beer & Wine,’ run by the engaging and energetic couple Katherine and Brian Smythe.
Having lived in Banff for around 25 years, Katherine and Brian took over the laundromat, grocery and liquor store just over four years ago. Since taking over, they have given the premises a ‘face lift’ and gone up and beyond to ensure that they are able to cater to our guest’s needs.
Having young children of their own, Katherine and Brian understand what it is like to travel as a family; consequently they know first-hand both the vital items (like a loaf of bread or carton of milk) as well as all the little knick-knacks it can be so easy to forget (like a contact lens case), that people require when on a family holiday. As noted by Katherine they ‘have a little bit of everything for everyone’, but even if they don’t have it on-site, they are happy to run into town and purchase it for you!
The Chalet Grocery store’s services have extended to include an ATM, DVD rental, a variety of food and beverage packages, and even an online ordering service which enables guests to order groceries, beer, wine and other beverages for delivery to their suite (check out www.banffgrocery.ca )! What service!
So be sure to make the most of the ’Chalet Grocery & Laundromat’ and ‘Tunnel Mountain Beer & Wine’ during your stay at the Douglas Fir Resort and Chalets.
*All three premises are located on the Tunnel Mountain Road side of the main lodge building, open from 7:30am-10:00pm daily
