Canmore Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in Canmore, at Canmore Crossing, 1120 Railway Ave., 5 minutes from the eastern gates to Banff National Park. Why stay in a small hotel room with no view or amenities, in a noisy area of town when you can have your own condo in a great central location for about the same price. Just minutes to most of what you likely want to do in Banff, Canmore and surrounding area.

Call to inquire about last minute rates if unit isn't booked. We give a 10% to 25% discount for bookings with travel less than 28 days from today (outside of high season, and only for stays of 3 nights or longer)

25% off for travel in less than 7 days

20% off for travel in 13 - 7 days

15% off for travel in 20 - 14 days

10% off for travel in 28 to 21 days

We may also do exchanges at certain times of year - just send us an e-mail to inquire.

You can leave the condo and walk to many restaurants, pubs, shops, even Starbucks (to prove the unit is in the center of things) in less than five minutes.

About Laurie & Larry

Larry is a serial entrepreneur. Having spent much of the 90’s at Microsoft, since 2002 he has helped to create and run a number of Internet and high tech companies. Larry is currently starting a company that helps other people to buy vacation rental properties around the world. Just do a web search for 'How To Buy A Vacation Rental'

Laurie is a visual merchandiser who travels across Canada for her work.

Both of us are avid travellers. We own 5 vacation rental properties with Laurie managing the bulk of our rentals. Together we’ve spent many months travelling the world (North America - 5 provinces, over 20 states) (World - 10 countries and numerous territories) not counting places we’ve been to individually. Our goal is to do a good job exploring this great world of our in the time we have here.

We are open to trading time at our properties during the off peak seasons. All our properties are fantastic to visit year around.

Laurie & Larry purchased this condo in 2002

Why Laurie & Larry chose Canmore

We bought at Canmore Crossing, in Canmore, about 5 minutes outside the eastern gates to Banff National Park for the following reasons:

We have a fantastic mountain view

We love the town of Canmore. We like the fact that is isn't as touristy as the Town of Banff but still a great mountain town.

We like our central location between the new downtown core and the old quant downtown.

We love that once we are at our condo we can walk around the downtown core for shopping and restaurants.

Our location is nicely removed from the Trans Canada Highway and situated in such a way that we get very little traffic or train noise.

We decided to buy in Canmore Crossing because its location and amenities made it a special mountain getaway location.

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great apartment for families. It covered all our needs for both the baby and the adults, from a high chair and playpen to an X-box with games and movies. A grocery store and Canadian Tire (among other stores) were also within walking distance, making it really easy to grab any last minute items.

The owners were great! They were highly accessible and any issues were dealt with right away. They were also very accommodating and made us feel like VIP clients. Never made us feel like we were bothering them.

All our needs were met and it honestly felt like our home away from home. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here.

We had THE BEST time at your condo in Canmore!

  • 5 of 5
Hi Laurie and Larry,

I just wanted to write you a quick note and let you know that we had THE BEST time at your condo in Canmore! Aside from dog sledding, we really didn’t have time to ‘explore’ any of the other fun things you had listed, because we were too busy skiing :) We did, however, spend all of our evenings and days off walking around and sampling local life and fare of Canmore and we were pleasantly surprised. First of all, it was amazing that we could walk everywhere- even in the winter! Splitting our time between New York, LA and London, we tend to get a bit spoiled for choice. I was very VERY impressed at the quality of establishments in Canmore. They rank right up there with some of the best food I’ve had...we didn’t even get to try all of the ones we wanted!

Of course, the condo was so lovely and perfect, it was sometimes difficult for us to get up the motivation to leave :) Honestly, what a perfect location! We stayed in the loft since it had such a wonderful, airy feel and waking up to that huge picture window facing the mountains and the sunrise...well, there just isnt a better way to start the day :)

Finally a Relaxing part to our Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for the use of your condo during a BIG Canadian holiday. We had been on the road for nearly 2 weeks when we hit your little piece of paradise. The moment we walked in the door it just felt like home. It was truely the first time l had relaxed during our trip. Although our days were still busy and filled with seeing the sights, our evenings were relaxed and enjoyable. The kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed, along with the nice little extra's in the cupboard. It is hard when travelling to make food as tasty as you would at home, but the little herbs and spices in the cupboard where a nice surprise. The large open windows were lovely and allowed you to really enjoy the view that your condo had to offer. The location for grocery shopping was super, and it was surprising that you could not hear any noise from the street and carpark below. Our little family of 3 fitted well into your condo, and the convenience of you have the playpen for our son to sleep in was great. We all used the top bedroom, and also enjoyed the large spa bath. The condo was clean and meet all of the descriptions stated in the advert, and the pictures are exact. It is a definate what you see is what you get.... If there is one thing that l could change in the condo it would be the curtains, they simply did not block out enough light (especially for us Australians who have the sun going down at 7pm and not up again till 7am!!!) But overall, it was just wonderful. It was our first time at using VRBO and l would not hesitate to use them again, provided they are all as lovely as this property. The owners were also very helpful and easy to contact with small enquiries, responding quickly via email. THANK YOU once again for makinig our holiday a great one.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to write a review and your feedback. We only make it out to the property about once a year so we find emails from guests as to any possible improvements very helpful.

We are going to the property in about two weeks and will look in to what can be done about the light in the morning. The upstairs loft has wooden blinds so my guess is that you are referring to the huge set of windows in the family room. It is a combination of blinds and curtains. Are you referring to the balcony sliding door curtains? If yes, then we'll look to adding another layer of darker material behind the curtains.

For other guests we leave some basic spices but other guests constantly add to the spices that are in the cupboards. Your call as to whether you are comfortable using these spices or if you want to buy your own. Occasionally we clean house too so it is possible that there may not be anything more than salt and pepper.

Great accomodations

  • 5 of 5
Thank you,Laurie and Larry for the use of your Condo. It served our purposes perfectly as my two adult children and their spouses met me in Canmore to celebrate our Christmas together on the weekend before Christmas.We had a great time skating on the outdoor rink, skiing and snowshoeing. The Condo was equipped with everything we could have asked for. So much better than any hotel room. The Christmas tree was a fabulous surprise. We enjoyed the Monopoly game, X Box and the rooftop hot tub. Thank you again. I've already recommended it to many friends....Dorothy

Canmore Crossings

Three of us resided in the condo; highlights included great scenic view, good security (codes), quiet, spacious condo. It was conveniently located for incidental shopping. Area maps very useful. Location info accurate, listing photos accurate, place clean + tidy, owner very helpful. I will recommend this condo to friends. B/c we were in town for my daughter's wedding, we only tried 2 cafes; both were good.

Excellent alternative to Banff

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our first trip to the Canadian Rockies. WOW! It was amazing. When looking for accomodations we started in Banff. We found the prices and availability prohibative. When we found this condo in Canmore we were initially reluctant to rent it because it wasn't in Banff. However, Larry and Laurie were great to work with, and we were wrong about Canmore. We liked it even better than Banff! The views out the huge windows in this condo were amazing! The kitchen had everything we needed. We enjoyed playing games in front of the fire and enjoying the view. The unit was very clean. We walked into town every day (easy, short walk) There are 2 markets very close. Don't miss the little restaraunt "Communi-Tea" it was fabulous. Canmore is great and this condo couldn't have been a better place to stay!

Owner's Response: We too like Canmore better than the Town of Banff. In our opinion the Town of Banff is a bit of a tourist trap these days. Canmore is the quant mountain town most people wished the Town of Banff still was. Canmore is nestled in the valley just outside the eastern gates to Banff National Park.

Car: recommended

Located in downtown Canmore with an easy walk to the old downtown main street and all of the shops and restaurants. Easily access Policeman's Creek walking trail and gain access to the other hiking trails in Canmore from there. Easy 5 minute drive in to Banff National Park or Kananaskis Country (Canmore Nordic Centre and about 15 minutes to Spray Valley Provincial Park). Canmore is surrounded by National and provincial parks and our condo is in the centre of it all.
