Twin Falls Tea House National Historic Site

When train whistles first blew through the Rocky Mountains in the early 1900s, the Canadian Pacific Railway built grand hotels, rustic lodges and backcountry chalets amid some of Canada’s most spectacular natural landscapes. Stop at the historic log building while day-hiking to enjoy its rustic architecture and breathtaking views of the dual cascades of Twin Falls.
