An exceptional dining adventure awaits you where modern and mountain meld together seamlessly, as you nestle into our intimate Canadian log building and enjoy breathtaking views in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.

Almost three decades as a family owned business, Sage Bistro and Wine Lounge features two distinct menus and dining experiences, while both are driven by sourcing quality ingredients from as many local purveyors and producers of fine foods to bring a taste to your palate.

It is a journey where you get to decide which direction you would like to take your taste buds – the classic sophistication of the bistro downstairs, or the contemporary flair of the upstairs wine lounge. Both choices feature a unique and varied wine selection while you enjoy the rustic and casual setting of being inside a log cabin in the mountains.
