The property is located in Canmore, Alberta. It is on the second level, access by a private indoor staircase. Below are shops and restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk to the main street (restaurants, galleries and shops) and a 5 minute walk to Policeman’s Creek and local walking trails. It is a 15 minute drive to Banff. Trains are a factor with all Canadian mountain towns. The property is along a train line, however, it is very well insulated against sound (and cold!). Bedrooms are on the opposite side of the condo from the train line and the train should not disturb even the lightest of sleepers. Watching the trains go past is actually quite fascinating and not just for the train buffs! Please read our guest reviews.


There is a large parking lot out the front of the condo that is shared by other condo residents and the businesses. You can park where you like and parking is free.

Minimum Stay

Do you want to stay in one of our properties but the minimum stay is too long for you? Please get in contact with us. We can put you on a wait list in case the minimum stay is shortened or we add a new property to our inventory that has a shorter minimum stay. We can also keep you on the wait list in case we can ‘Split the Week’. What we mean by split the week is we get one guest who wants to stay Monday to Wednesday and another guest who wants to stay Thursday to Sunday but the minimum stay is 6 nights. What we can do is take bookings for both guests and the reservations together will add up to the minimum 6 night stay. There will be an extra clean required and the cost of the clean will be split up based on the number of nights booked by each guest.


The HomeAway availability calendar is synced with our Internal Reservation System calendar during the day. If your dates are available and you meet the house rules, then you are welcome to 'Book Now'.

About Rockies Rentals

Rockies Rentals assists visitors with finding the perfect vacation rental unit by combining the personal service associated with booking a unit direct with the owner, with the security and professionalism of booking with a company. A vacation rental is any accommodation that offers access to a private area to prepare meals (AKA a 'kitchen'), a private bathroom, and a sleeping area. The 'kitchen' might be a bar fridge and a microwave, or a custom-designed baking mecca that will bring out the chef in you.

Why Rockies Rentals chose Canmore

When you contact Rockies Rentals, you are talking directly with someone who knows the area. We started the company with our first vacation rental in Canmore in 2005 and grew from those humble beginnings. Happy guests have always been the foundation for our success. Our company has now expanded to include properties owned and managed by other people so that guests can book their dream vacation rental property.

You can find our company listed with the Canmore Town Registry. Having car touble? We'll set you up with our trusted mechanic. Want the inside track on events, dining, shopping and attractions? We actually live Banff/Canmore area, and visit the other areas in the Canadian Rockies quite frequently.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Note from Rockies Rentals: This review was originally posted on another online review site, and copied here for your convenience.

We really enjoyed the condo. The accommodations are lovely and the loation is ideal. The paved path next to the building makes the town center, grocery store and natural food store a few minutes walk. We loved not needing our car when in town. Canmore is a special town. Not too big and lots of special places, paths and people. We loved frequenting Communitea tea house.

We had a wonderful time at the condo.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the condo.

It proved to be a great location

and very functional.

Condo was competitive with others

advertised, extras (backpacks, games)

definitely add to value. Building type

was not mentioned as well as proximity

to train...although I can understand you

wouldn't want to advertise the train. It

turned out not to be an issue it was

only slightly disturbing in the early

evening but we didn't hear it much

otherwise...I'm not sure whether it is

better to warn people or not. The fact

that it was a commercial building was a

surprise. We passed by twice before we

realized we had the right address. This

is not a deterrent but because we were

looking for a traditional condo building

it made it more difficult to find. It

may be helpful to disclose more clearly

in the future.

Place was clean as expected. Use of

backpacks, movies, games, internet and

park pass were all very

huge bonuses and much appreciated by


We would likely stay with you again if

our travels take us to Canmore. Overall

we did have a wonderful time though

thank you for providing the

means to give my young family an awesome

vacation ( even the baby

enjoyed it).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. They are very valuable to us in determining chat changes we need to make to the service or amenities we offer. We have added information about the train to our website, and have updated our driving direction to better describe the building you are looking for upon arrival. Glad everyone had a great time!

Very very clean but not maintained.

  • 3 of 5

Window in living room has been broken for months according to guest book. Microwave above stove not working so one was placed on counter. Hole on deck has not been repaired - has tape over it. A child's leg could fit through it. Bench on deck is unsafe. With a little maintenance, this place could be 5 stars. Location is great, very very clean, safe, and large for a vacation condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest review. The items noted are in the process of being repaired, and sometimes there are delays with getting work done or replacement parts in Canmore. Your note made us realize that we should leave a note of known issues so that guests don't feel as though we've ignored the items.

Cute place in a great location and all the amenities you need

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay. We came back because the location is so great--close to Canmore, Banff and Kananaskis. The condo has exactly what you need--it's spacious and quite (even with the train tracks out back), a big kitchen, a nice balcony and grill, TV and cozy fireplace. You can walk to several grocery stores, wine stores and lots of restaurants. There's a washer and dryer so that you can bring home all clean clothes. The view!--did I mention the view? You are in the cradle of the 3 sisters. It's astonishing--you feel like you can reach out and touch the mountains. You should be here.

Excellent Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very clean, spacious and well equipped with everything we needed like being at home. We stayed in this condo 5 days, it was very closed Banff. Only a few minutes to walk to downtown Canmore. It is much better than staying hotel. We definitely recommend this property to anyone is planning to Banff. Thanks Rockies Rentals.
