I'm a proud owner of this condo, we bought it to spend a few months a year in our retirement. Over the years, we've made many improvements, from the basic builder's lightings to the appliances.

It is in the best region of all Canada! with four seasons activities and all the conveniences yet remaining a hidden gem, away from the busy, noisy Banff but next to the National Parks! We can go north to Jasper, west to British Columbia (Vancouver), east to Calgary and the 'downtown' shopping or south to explore dinosaur fossils!

Rustic style with peaceful ranges of mountains all around us! nearby paradise of lakes, pines, canyons, waterfalls! wildlife in abundance and yet, we're right at home with our fireplace and hot tub too! steps away from the main shopping area and Main St of Canmore. Pleasant walk to the Bow River, great relaxing stroll in the afternoon and Thurs Farmer Market!

The apartment was super clean and fresh, just liken a hotel. It was great, even the bedding was nice and taut! Great place for a girls weekend get away.

Location is fabulous! Everything you need right at hand. Safeway, Sobeys and a number of wine stores; among other retailers.

Eat, sleep and eat more! Thanks so much to the owner for such a great place!

This condo is spacious, well-set up, artistically decorated with mountain views from the living room and both bed rooms. From this quiet and comfortable place we could walk to many restaurants, pubs, grocery stores, wine shops,...in minutes, even to a memorable Sunday afternoon concert performed by international musicians from the Banff Centre for the Arts.

The owner Grace is a most generous, considerate and warm person who made our getting-away experience easy and enjoyable. We had a wonderful stay and would like to make this lovely condo our Canmore home!!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice comment! So glad you had a good stay and took time to give us a review. Each year we try to "improve" the condo too; I can't wait to be there this year myself. Welcome you back anytime, thank you too, for your kindness! Grace.

It´s just an amazing place, perfectly decorated, in the centre of Canmore, well equiped, which makes your stay comfortable and pleasure.
We personally prefer Canmore than Banff as living place, as it has all the services, it is close to the National Park and is much quiet and peaceful. Better restaurant too!!! :)
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments! great to hear you enjoyed the place, come back anytime! Thanks again for your time & kind comment, Grace

lovely condo in downtown Canmore!

We spent a wonderful 4 days at Gracie's lovely condo this week! It is a great home base to explore Banff and Lake Louise. The condo itself is gorgeous, exactly as advertised on the website. Enormous luxury kitchen, cozy gas fireplace, outdoor grill, and nicely decorated with art and mountain feel decorations.

We were just 2 people, and found this condo was around the same price as the Banff hotels, but we got so much more - 2 bedrooms and 2 baths! Only complaint is that the beds could have been a bit more comfortable, but not a major concern. Overall everything was very cozy and nicely set up.

The condo itself is in the "suburban" part of Canmore, right next to a Safeway supermarket and lots of chain stores (eg. Tim Horton's, sporting goods stores, etc). What we discovered partway through our trip is that if you cross over Railway Ave you head into the "downtown" of Canmore, which has much more of a cozy small town feel, and where we ended up spending most of our time. It's really close walking distance from the condo, and there are lots of nice independently owned restaurants and cafes. In particular we loved the Rocky Mountain Flatbread pizza company and Tapas restaurant, it's a fun area to explore.

Overall a great stay here! Beautiful condo, great location, very well set up and homey. Gracie was a delight to interact with, and great to talk to on the phone when choosing the place. Very friendly and responsive, and she goes out of her way to ensure you have a great trip. Thanks again, Gracie!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristin! I'm glad you found it comfortable and suit your need. Canmore is a very pretty town, espc very peaceful along the Bow River! The beds, as described, in the master bdrm, a bit on the firm side, the one in the guest room is softer. I have been to hotels or other rentals w/ beds too soft (or lumpy) and pillows that are too thin --no support at all-- on the other hand we were in Europe recently and the beds in one hotels were like a rock! :) but perhaps that's European way? :) I'm glad over all everything was great -- thank you again for taking the time to give us your feed back! Have a great (whatever is left) summer! Grace.

You can rent a car, bikes, skis for the winter and canoes in the summer. Beautiful grounds for outdoor picnics, hiking, sightseeing, lakes & mountains surrounding, you'll never run out of things to do! bring your fishing rods and lots of disc space for your cameras! As all condo buildings, family oriented but after midnight noise level should be at minimum.
