The original chateau was built during the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway. The beautiful emerald green lake in front of the hotel is one of the most photographed places in Canada. Originally, the chateau was built to be a summer destination only, but the hotel was winterized in 1982.

Activities for guests in the winter months include downhill skiing, snowmobiling, heli-tours, cross country skiing, ice skating, and horse drawn sleigh rides. Summer activities are hiking, canoeing, horseback riding, fishing, rafting, and mountain biking. After a hard day of adventure, guests can dine in one of the hotels eight restaurants or soothe their aching muscles in the hotel's spa.

The hotel's employees are friendly and helpful. One of the most delightful employees is Marcus, a yellow labrador retriever. Marcus serves as the Director of Pet Relations and is one of Fairmont's Canine Ambassadors. Marcus likes to hike and play fetch with guests.
