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!

BEAUTIFUL CANMORE APARTMENT .. HOME FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 6 stayed in Gracie's place in Canmore. The apartment is so spacious we had plenty of room for all of us. Nestled in the foothills of the Rockies it's an ideal base to explore the surrounding areas. Very clean and fully equipped a real home away from home. Will definitely
return and would highly recommend.

GREAT ACCOMODATIONS!!

  • 5 of 5
My first impression was how clean and tidy the condo was. We also loved the neighbourhood, Safeway just a few minute walk from the condo. It was the perfect place to stay because it was so close to all the destinations you would want to see. Banff, lake Louise, lake moraine, radium, Johnston canyon-all under 1 hr travel time from Canmore. Being from Saskatchewan, we loved the mountain view off of the deck. Grace has got to be the most gracious and attentive host you could possibly have. She was always a text or email away and replied almost instantly with answers to our questions. She was so resourceful on places we should visit etc. We would
Come back in a heartbeat and will recommend staying at Gracie's Place to anyone!! Thanks so much Gracie!!

PERFECT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We found this condo the perfect home base for exploring Banff and its surrounding national parks. We were happy to stay in pleasant Canmore rather than touristy Banff. However, all of the attractions of Banff were right down the road, an easy 15 minute drive. The condo is immaculate, well stocked, and very conveniently located. We recommend it to anyone! We loved our stay!

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
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!!

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.
