Default Remote cabins with some amenities and fishing

New here, so ‘Hello’ and apologies if this is not the appropriate place for this question.

I’m planning a trip through the Canadian Rockies BC and Alberta with my partner July 2017 (likely approximate route is Banff, upto Jasper, then to Clearwater, Kamloops and over to Whistler, however this is very flexible).

We’re looking to go to a couple of ‘remote’ cabins, they could be proper backcountry cabins or just secluded and more accessible, just not in a crowded area. Criteria for us are:

• Minimum of indoor compost toilet
• Needs to be near river/lake for fishing (where it isn’t catch and release)
• Ideally don’t want a cabin close to any other cabins (but might compromise on this)

To give an idea of the types of place that could appeal:

We have looked at http://www.wellsgrayparkcabins.com/w...guesthouse.php it’s convenient to get to, good hiking and would give some feeling of remoteness (although its just off the road) but it’s an hour from a river and that river has catch and release rules.

And we’ve looked at http://www.alpineclubofcanada.ca/hut...glacier-cabin/ it has great amenities considering where it is, but we don’t really want to share and aren’t sure how easy it is to hike into from somewhere you can leave a car.

We are willing to make good cabins dictate a lot of our trip, so we can amend our path through BC to get to the right places.

@gunthur, good call, thanks for the recommendation, it looks like a place that may well fit our criteria.

It's not backcountry, but we love Baker Creek Mountain Resort near Lake Louise. Secluded and the Trapper's cabins are amazing

As there doesn't seem to be many ideas for the original criteria, can anyone suggest any more accessible cabins? Ideally not all crammed together, but a good base to hike from, with amenities as listed above. Let's say just secluded rather than remote, so could be reachable by car just not many, if any, other cabins around. Suggestions welcome for anywhere between Vancouver and the Rockies.
