We live in Florida, and have never seen scenery like this...Wow!! The views from the house are incredible. WoodsEdge is so beautiful and exactly like the description. You must get Margaret to suggest some hikes...she's done 40 this year and is a real expert on things to do in the area for all ages and activity levels. All that, plus she's such a nice lady. The fridge was stocked with milk, juice and eggs when we arrived....very considerate after our long journey. WoodsEdge is highly reccomended by us!!
We stayed at WoodsEdge for two weeks in the summer. We were a party of 9, ranging in age from 7 to 70. We all fit comfortably and didn't feel cramped as it was over 3 floors. We had a lovely fire outside in the community fire pit one evening. We hiked from the house a few times - one really long hike took us out to the golf course, and there are shorter ones just in the woods nearby. The kids played soccer on the field nearby, and we even rode bikes into Canmore one day, but the steep hill home wasn't fun for the kids so we didn't repeat. We enjoyed the deck and views and didn't turn the TV on once - a great vacation.
Look no further at a rental property. This place is top notch! Exactly as described. Very clean and maintained large house with very well stocked kitchen, linens and everything you need. I loved the way the house was laid out. Very private for large groups as most of the bedrooms are on separate floors. Each bedroom has its own bathroom too! If you're lucky you will get meet the lovely golden retriever that lives next door. His name is Charlie and he is very sweet.
Very close to the highway and only 20 min to Banff. The views were just stunning from the house. Nothing nicer than waking up to the quiet area and the mountains.
Kathrin the owner was superb to deal with and answered all questions I had for her.
You must eat at the Iron Goat restaurant just behind the house. I had the salmon and it was the best I have ever eaten.
I would not hesitate for second in renting this gorgeous property. Everyone in our party just loved every inch of it.
My family and I met at Woodsedge for a week or reunion and renewal. The condo was more than we had expected! The home has lots of space to spread out, privacy, high end finishes and decor, well equipend kitchen and everything you would want. We enjoyed our evenings by the fire , skiing and a dog sled trip. hope to return .
We just returned home from spending a week at this beautiful home. It was absolutely a perfect location for our ski days to Sunshine, Norquay, Lake Louise and even Kicking Horse. The layout of the home provided privacy for sleeping arrangements and a great central living room, kitchen, dining room set up for all of us to comfortably enjoy.
As mentioned in a previous comment, our only complaint as well was that we had to leave!
Thank you for everything. We will return!
We were completely blown away by this home! With the panoramic views, perfectly cleaned, ample space, luxurious towels and linens. No details were missed. It had everything we needed to make our 2 families feel at home. The older children appreciated having their own 'private' floor. The extra baby supplies were greatly appreciated and in very good condition. We spent our days enjoying the sights of Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise, the complementary park pass was most helpful. The children enjoyed easy hikes (we would recommend Johnston Canyon for kids), picnics, playing at the nearby park and fishing in the Bow. Upon our arrival we were surprised to see the complimentary bread, milk, juice and eggs in the fridge, very thoughtful, after a long day of driving. Since the kitchen was so fabulous we spent nearly every evening eating in. We would certainly come back again. Thank you for sharing your magnificent home with us. Our only complaint was that we had to leave!
