Fantastic family rental

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 13 people spanning 3 generations - Mum & Dad, their 4 sons and spouses, 2 three years old girls and a 16 month old boy. This home is just about faultless with a very flexible layout, comfortably furnished and well equipped. We met Tom & Pat on arrival for a whistle-stop tour, Pat saw us off after our two week stay and refunded the deposit. They are great people to deal with. As described in other reviews the property is well placed for a stroll into Canmore with all its facilities and has fabulous views of the surrounding mountains. Canmore is a great place to base a holiday and we hiked, swam, cycled, rode horses, fished, white-water rafted, kayaked, sky walked, visited a glacier and lazed in hot springs. After every activity the house was a great place to return to and compare notes and it did fell that we were at home - albeit Tom & Pat's home.

Beautiful home, spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with unbeatable views. We enjoyed having our coffee and breakfast out on one of the decks each morning, watching the sunrise over the mountains. It was tough trying to decide which mountains we wanted to look at each morning! It is perfectly situated within walking distance of the town center (via a fun shortcut path through the back yard), but also near the edge of town and a short 5 minute hike past a waterfall to Quarry Lake. It is just a short drive to the Nordic Center, Grassi Lakes and several other picturesque lakes and trails. There is abundant wildlife nearby - we saw mule deer and elk during our stay.

The home is incredibly well stocked, with almost everything you might need, from condiments and spices in the kitchen to eyeglass cleaner, makeup remover and hand lotion in all of the bathrooms. I have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals, but until now I have never stayed anywhere that had enough toilet paper, paper towels and trash bags to see a party of 11 through a 9 day stay. The kitchen actually has 2 refrigerators, which was quite handy. The owners have really paid attention to all the details. It is also, hands down, the cleanest place I have ever stayed.

The owners did meet us at the house at the beginning of our stay and again at the end of the stay - which we thought was a little unorthodox from our previous experience. However, they simply want to make sure their visitors know how everything works and that their home will be well cared for. At the end of our stay, they did a quick walk through and returned our security deposit (in cash) on the spot. They are extremely friendly and accommodating. They recommended a few hikes and even provided the name and number of a massage therapist, who I wish I could say we had called.

This is a beautiful home, in a great location, with incredible views and owners who have gone the extra mile to ensure their guests are comfortable. I can recommend it without reservation.

Perfect Holiday Rental for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 4 adult daughters, 3 spouses, 1 boyfriend and 2 toddler grandsons, spent Christmas week at this beautiful Canmore home. We were met at the door by the owners, who gave us a detailed tour and explanation of how things worked. The house has 3 livable levels-an upper level with 2 bedrooms, full bath, master suite/bath with fireplace and sitting area, and a loft with computer and futon overlooking the main floor. The first floor has another bedroom, laundry room, full bath and 2 living areas separated by a floor-to-ceiling wood burning fireplace. The kitchen, also, on the first floor, exceeded our expectations. There was ample space for all of us, including 2 high chairs (1 was provided) around the table. Though we were told that the kitchen was fully stocked, we weren't expecting things like napkins, foil, spices, flour and sugar, condiments and every baking, serving and cooking pot and pan imaginable. We also weren't expecting the very useful 2 refrigerators. The lower level, with heated floor, houses a large bedroom with 2 beds and an alcove perfect for a porta crib. There is no bathroom down there, but the occupants of this room didn't have a problem with going upstairs.

This property was spotless and well maintained. It was beautifully decorated for Christmas with a large tree, lights, and other holiday accents. We were given 2 park passes and wifi codes for the house. There were 2 strollers, 2 porta cribs, and a highchair available, which we made good use of. The two sets of stairs were a problem initially, but we were able to figure out a way to barricade them from the toddlers.

From Canmore, it was an easy trip to the 3 main ski hills and the town of Banff. In addition, we sledded and snow shoed in the area right around the house. The owners pointed out a shortcut to walk into town but we never got around to trying it. We brought most of the food we needed for our large group; there is a good size grocery close by that we used for extras.

This was a perfect house, in a perfect location, to meet the needs of our group. We especially appreciated the 360 degree mt. views and the private areas for the 5 small families that make up our large family! We would not hesitate to recommend the property to friends or family.

Family Vacation for 13

  • 4 of 5

My parents took my family, siblings, and their families (for a grand total of 8 adults and 5 children) on a week long vacation to Canmore/Banff. This home was a perfect location with beautiful views and plenty of entertainment nearby. We all enjoyed some local hiking, shopping and dining and Canmore, and a short drive in to Banff for more scenery, horseback riding, golf, and more.

With a 14 month old, I was relieved to find a home that provided a high chair, portable baby bed, and even a stroller to use. I would recommend this to other families, though a group our size could have used one extra bathroom.

The owners were very accommodating and welcoming and have a created a wonderful vacation home for groups large and small.
