About Terry Benjamin
My wife Cathy and and I live in Longmont, Colorado,,35 miles north of Denver. She is a retired attorney and I retired after 33 years as the Executive Director of an organization that provides help to low income and homeless families. Although we love Colorado and feel blessed to be here we fell in love with the Canadian Rockies a few years ago and were fourtunate enough to buy a spectular place in Canmore. We were the second person to buy in our building a year before construcition began so we were able to get 'the best' floor plan and views. Everyone who stays says the pictures don't do the views justice. We love sharing it with others. I love taking with people about Canmore and our property so feel free to give us a call with any questions.
Terry Benjamin purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Terry Benjamin chose Canmore
Canmore is just stunning and the small town feel is much more relaxed than Banff. Things are not as expensive as Banff either. We also love the miles of trails in town that are along Policemans Creek and the Bow River. Access is just across the street from the condo.
What makes this Condo unique
location, location, location!!! Access to downtown, grocery stores and other shops. Trails right across the street make you feel like you are in wilderness. Really! And, roof top hot tub has most stunning views of valley and peaks of anyplace in downtown.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great location, amazing views and great baby friendly apartment
We had a lovely weeks stay at Terry's apartment. My sister and brother in law were visiting from home and I couldn't have asked for a better spot for them to experience the delights of Canada. The apartment was well equipped to cook, lots of space and not too many objects for little hands to get a hold of.
Would definitely recommend or stay again if we're in town.
So glad you had a great week in canmore and enjoyed the condo
Good stay, lots of space, great location!
Briefly, here are our pro and cons to this condo:
Pros: amazing location near downtown, and the kind of stores you are likely to need (groceries, alcohol, etc etc) are just few minutes walk away, has underground parking, the condo was very spacious and had great views, and the condo was generally well kept and appointed, and the park's pass is a great savings if you drive to Banff!
Cons: the code we were given to get into the parking/use the elevator didn't work and the key fob for the hot tub was not in the condo (we called the management person as listed and they gave us a code and a fob very quickly, so that was great), the sunlight will heat the condo a lot so keep those shades drawn during the day, and we found the electric lock on the door to be finicky some of the time.
Really glad to enjoyed the place--location, views, spaciousness, etc. I do apologize for confusion about entry codes and fob. The management company just made those changes (codes, fobs) the day before you arrived. I thought I had sent update codes to you but apparently did not get to you in timely way. You got caught in the transition. Ouch! Going forward guest will have new codes in welcome letter I send to all guests. Happy travels.
It is in a ideal spot.
Loved our stay.
The unit is spacious, clean and well equipped. It is also located close to downtown, a grocery store, and a great recreation facility. There was nothing about this place not to like.
Thanks for the kind words. Glad you enjoyed the condo and the location.
Beautiful, large condo
We absolutely loved staying here! It is hard to find a better view. The condo is much more spacious than the pictures show. The location is excellent and having the underground garage was extremely nice, especially the mornings which it was -10F. The kitchen was well stocked and was very convenient having the Safeway right there. Absolutely loved staying here and would recommend others to as well. I also appreciated all the info provided by the owners, we were able to do 2 of their recommended hikes and loved them.
The only issue we had was with the heat, but it seems like that was coming from one of the retail places below. We set the thermostats really low and didn't feel any heat coming from the heating units, but the rooms got really hot, had to sleep with the windows open.
So glad you loved the place and let folks know it is even more spacious than pictures indicate. Regarding heat I am wondering if the in floor radiant heat in kitchen and baths (which is nice) might have been set on high? It operates on a different system than regular heat. Appreciate the heads up and will have housekeeper check it out. Might need to add info about how radiant heat works in the welcome letter I send with all the other info. Always can improve. Glad you did a couple of recommended hikes and enjoyed them. Thanks again for staying at our place. And, also glad you enjoyed the views............stunning, eh?
Beautiful condo, well equipped and clean.
Great location, could walk to downtown with the many quaint shops and great restaurants. The view of the mountains from the condo was stunning. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
The views really are stunning aren’t they? Glad you enjoyed them and the location.
The beautiful Bow River flows through the heart of town and is a five minute walk away. Trails along Policeman's Creek, which is one block from the condo, provides a wilderness walk right in town. We live and hike in Colorado but are simply astounded by the beauty of these in-town trails as well at the majesty of the mountains surrounding Canmore. People who I speak to on the phone about renting our place wonder why we would have a second home in the Canadian Rockies. I respond by saying 'it simply is that beautiful in Canmore.'
In addition to the stunning scenery Canmore has a wonderful variety of unique locally owned restaurants and shops. No mall with the stores or eateries you seem to see everywhere these days. Although the restaurants are great we find ourselves cooking in the very well equipped kitchen most nights. A new Safeway and an upscale Soby's market are next door. If you do want to eat out the eateries are a three block walk away.
Other Activities: spelunking, shopping, horseback riding, rafting, rock climbing
