We had a wonderful time. The apartment is spacious and comfortable. Of all the places we have stayed is the best stocked with everything you may need. The place is in walking distance to shops and restaurants in the very quaint town of Jasper, Alberta.
It is very comforting to know you have hosts who are friendly, approachable and helpful. I would definitely stay there again. Thank you so much!
Truly a home away from home!
Our stay exceeded our expectations in every possible respect!!! The hosts were more than generous with the amenities( including premium channels and Netflix, a real treat for us) , guidance on trails and restaurants, stocked beverages ( we relied on them for daily caffeine) and the location was ideal. The landscaping and all the basketed flowers were so beautiful. Everything in their property description was exactly as described. We are more than happy to recommend this property!!

Fantastic, Comfortable and Relaxing Stay
We spent a fantastic week at the Bear's Den with our five and two year old daughters exploring the hiking and sights in the Jasper region. The Bear's Den was a great place to return to each day and really made us feel like home. While it isn't decorated with the latest and greatest style, Lydia and Gerry have gone out of their way to make it feel like home. They provided so many extras in the kitchen, laundry room and bathrooms. The unit was open and roomy and was spacious enough for the four of us to relax and play. It was one of the most comfortable and homelike places we have ever stayed.
Lydia and Gerry themselves were very pleasant and helpful. They were available, but not at all overbearing. Lydia suggested several of their favorite hikes to us and gave us a great overview of the region. They provided suggestions on local restaurants and shops. They even made sure to save us a parking spot on a very busy weekend. Our girls enjoyed joining Lydia on the front porch as she sang with her ukulele.
The location was centrally located. Once we came home each day from our hikes, we never had to get in the car to go within the town. We walked to the grocery store and restaurants. There was a park and swimming pool across the street.
We had a great view from our dining room window of Whistler Peak and an even better view from the front porch.
The only complaint we had was that the front bedroom could have used light darkening shades. With the sun not setting until after 10 p.m., it was hard for our daughter to fall asleep. Otherwise, this was the perfect place to spend a week.
The best vacation rental we have ever enjoyed
In our years of travel this has been our best vacation rental experience. The Bear's Den is an immaculate, spacious and fully equipped suite. Lydia and Gerry are exceptional hosts who went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed, including cheerfully dealing with a very late arrival. Beyond that, however, they shared information with us and let us in on Jasper's hidden gems (and a heads-up on making sure we had our grocery shopping done before the local stores started to run low).
The suite has more amenities than any other rental we have ever experienced. The kitchen is not just well equipped, it was stocked with everything you need to call it home. Bathrooms were the same, with supplies to cover those "things you might have forgotten".
The beds are superb and a good night's sleep is assured.
The location is mere minutes from the town with restaurants, pubs, grocery stores and pharmacies within a very short walk. In the evening you can sit outside and gaze at the Whistlers and Mount Edith Cavell. Trail access to low country trails is a two minute walk.
Thank you, Lydia and Gerry for being such wonderful hosts and treating us to your awesome Bear's Den.
