Built and owned by the Luxton family, Beaver Lodge has been home to hundreds. This eight-bedroom log structure is representative of typical early Banff rooming houses. The rustic detail of the log exterior, varnished wood interiors and minimal alterations make this structure a fine example of a building style once common in Banff. The Beaver Lodge cost $3500 to build in 1913-1914.
