1. Comfort Steeped in Indigenous History
With its unique design that combines both traditional and contemporary Métis craftmanship, The Lodge at Métis Crossing is a special blend of comfort, culture and Métis history. Located directly adjacent to the Métis Crossing Cultural Gathering Centre, our 40-room boutique lodge offers scenic views overlooking the majestic North Saskatchewan River, the very route used by our Métis ancestors as they gathered at this very spot.
2. Indigenous Cuisine
Once refreshed from a sleep in your cozy and comfortably appointed guestroom you are welcome to join us at the main floor Bistro for coffee and express breakfast. At Métis Crossing our approach to food is aligned with our overarching approach to an immersive Métis experience. This means that as our guest you will experience land to table Indigenous cuisine, much of which is grown and harvested right here at Métis Crossing! Have you ever wanted to try bison or Bannock? This your chance!
3. Star Gazing
After a day of exploration and experiences, we invite you to enjoy our second-floor Lounge with cocktails and light snacks. With its floor to ceiling windows, you are sure to revel in the evening nightscape of stars and constellations. While Métis Crossing is only 1.5 hours outside of Edmonton, you will truly feel like you have been transported to another place and time when you look to the sky at Métis Crossing. Stars played a significant role in traditional Métis life, which is why we also offer Tales from the Stars with our Métis knowledge keeper!
4. Something for Everyone
Are you hosting an event? We know that getting all of your colleagues, friends or family in one place at the same time can be challenging. At Métis Crossing we offer camping, comfort camping in tradition trappers tents, and now The Lodge at Métis Crossing! There is truly something for everyone, no matter their level of adventure, their age, or their heritage, Métis has something for everyone!
