GORGEOUS CONDO W/ RUSTIC HERITAGE DÉCOR

Canmore Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms w/ Queen Beds + Queen Sofa Bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Quote from my Guest Book: 'Beautiful and relaxing holiday! Your condo looked beautiful on the internet and was pleasantly surprised that it was even nicer once here...wonderful holiday!' (Coquitlam, BC)

Nestled just 15 minutes outside of Banff, this tastefully decorated, 1,000 sq. ft., two-bedroom, two-bath condominium features a large formal entry way, a bright, open lounge and dining area boasting hardwood floors, river rock gas fireplace with log mantle, leather sofa set, Canadian heritage antiques, 'rustic' decorative lamps, original mountain artwork, and Mackenzie tartans throughout. There is also a deck that provides spectacular views of the creek and surrounding peaks, including the famous 'Three Sisters.'

The building is located across from a protected wetland habitat, at the edge of Policeman's Creek with meandering boardwalk. With unobstructed views of pretty much nature only, you get the feeling of wilderness seclusion, yet are only a less than 5 minute walk from conveniences of the quaint, yet cultural alpine town of Canmore.

In the living room for your relaxation and entertainment are a television with basic cable, VCR, stereo system, and CD player. And the balcony off of the living room not only provides spectacular creek and mountain views, it also provides a teak bistro set, and a large gas barbecue to fire up that world famous Alberta beef!

The large, fully-equipped, modern kitchen contains tiled floors, dishwasher, microwave, a refrigerator, and cupboards stocked with various condiments, cookbooks, and just about every tool the gourmet chef in you would need to create a fabulous meal.

The spacious, yet cozy master bedroom contains a queen-size bed with rustic log headboard and two closets, while the second bedroom contains a queen-size bed and one large closet. In addition, there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room, allowing for a maximum occupancy of six people (rates based on four-person occupancy). Both bedrooms contain high-quality eyelet lace bed sheets, duvets and pillows, as well as vintage bedroom furniture, 'rustic' decorative lamps, original mountain artwork, Mackenzie tartan throw pillows and scarves, and plush berber carpet. The master en suite contains a shower stall, while the second bathroom located in the hallway contains a bathtub/shower combination - quality towels provided in each.

The hallway contains a built-in bookshelf brimming with various paperback books and hard cover coffee table books featuring Canadian and Rocky Mountain art, all of which can be enjoyed while taking in the fresh mountain air on the balcony by day, or cozying up next to the warm fire at night. Also provided for your enjoyment with friends and family are various board games and decks of cards.

The condominium has a large storage room containing a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, a picnic knapsack (to take on hikes), fans, first aid kit, and various cleaning supplies. Also provided for your convenience is a heated underground garage.

Tasteful rustic, Canadian heritage decor and high-end comfort have been given priority at Mackenzie Creekside. The original mountain artwork done by the owner and her father as well as other Alberta artists, in additional to the Mackenzie tartans and Canadian heritage family photos, help to create a sense of 'home-away-from-home' beckoning you to return to Mackenzie Creekside to visit the majestic Canadian Rockies...

I'm originally from Calgary and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1994. I work for a large medical device company by day and volunteer as a graphic designer/webmaster/events committee member for the Nine Lives Foundation - a no-kill cat shelter in the Bay Area. But I missed the Canadian Rockies so much that I decided to purchase a vacation condo in Canmore and visit the area ~2x/year. It's such an AMAZING part of the world that I can't get enough of! :-)

Leanne Mackenzie purchased this condo in 2001

I've always envisioned myself owning a log cabin in the middle on nowhere, but unfortunately, that just isn't feasible (for many reasons). I learned of 'The Boardwalk' building and how most of the condos face the protected wetlands, creek, and mountains, including the famous 'Three Sisters'. I bought the condo sight-unseen because it was the only condo available with that kind of unobstructed views of nature only. You get the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere, but are yet a 2-10 minute walk from just about everything you need. I decorated the condo to have a rustic cabin-like ambiance, so between the views and the convenient location, it's the best of both worlds!

My husband and I stayed at "Creekside" in May 2013. The Condo was quite and comfortable and the beauty of the views were amazing to say the least! The condo offered everything we needed for our week stay. Laundry in condo, full kitchen, comfortable beds and lots of room to move about. The building was secure and safe, the underground parking was a plus. Also offered was a provincial park pass for our use, that was fantastic as we used it almost everyday and didn't have to wait in line to pay the toll. The information packet that was given to us from the owner was by far the best, and so helpful. Condo was close to highways and amenities, but far enough away to provide privacy and quite. What a beautiful home that you share with others looking for a more personal vacation stay rather than hotels.

Perfect for those wanting the experience Canada without touristy feel

Stayed at this condo for ten days in July 2011 and found it to be a perfect location. The unit has underground parking and access to the condos is via an electronic key "fob" which adds another layer of security (although I never felt nervous in Canmore.) There is a pub/restaurant downstairs with friendly staff who answer all your questions. Downtown Canmore is a very easy walk and does not have the same crowded feeling as Banff. Very close to grocery stores, banks and liquor store. There are a number of restaurants in the area (sit down and fast food) and gas is easily available. Highway 1 is just a few minutes drive. Banff is approximately 20 minutes away and Calgary approximately 90 minutes Great location for anyone looking for a bit of quiet at the end of a day of sight seeing.
