The Lake House is managed by Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts and features CRMR’s renowned and distinctive Rocky Mountain Cuisine

Perched directly above Lake Bonavista with large glass windows overlooking the lake, The Lake House, formerly The Ranche restaurant,  is home to one of Calgary’s finest and most creative restaurants as well as a unique setting for weddings and corporate events. Exuding rustic elegance, the interior is illuminated with ornate elk antler chandeliers and accessorized with a grand stone fireplace.

Catching your eye when you enter the restaurant, a brand new 130 square foot glass encased wine cellar as well as a refurbished 21 foot bar from the 1800’s, previously housed in a mercantile shop in Montana, speak to the recent renovations. The outdoor patio provides the perfect opportunity to savour sips and enjoy delicious Rocky Mountain Cuisine.
