Welcome to a unique architecturally designed private residence that is set high on a mountain near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the town of Canmore, Alberta. The home was completed in 2009 and will appeal to people with an interest in modern design with an alpine flair. The house is located in a four-season development centered around a golf course and backs onto miles of protected government land with hiking, biking, and winter sports out your door. The home features spectacular mountain views from every angle.

This 5800+ square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms, all with hand-laid glass mosaic tiled ensuite bathrooms. There is an additional powder room off the kitchen/dining area. The house is large enough for family reunions or corporate retreats, yet intimate in scale for smaller groups. The bedrooms are spread out in the house over 3 levels to provide the maximum amount of separation and privacy. Just a few of the unique touches include reclaimed maple flooring, imported Italian door hardware, heated ensuite floors, quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry, and an indoor rock and bouldering climbing area!

Main Level

The large foyer leads into the open concept kitchen/dining area with reclaimed maple hardwood flooring throughout. The fully-equipped kitchen features everything you need to prepare the perfect meal and Whirlpool stainless steel appliances: double oven, gas 5-burner cooktop, side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher and microwave oven. Enjoy a quick bite to eat at the eat-in bar (seats 6) or sit down for a grander meal at the dining room table (seats 12). The custom kitchen features quarter-sawn white oak cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances. Don’t forget to turn on the gas wall fireplace to set the mood while enjoying dinner! You can relax in the spacious living room in front of the river-rock fireplace while reveling in the Mountain View that surrounds you.

Upper Level

The upper level features a grand master bedroom with custom walk-in closet and an indoor balcony which looks onto the 3-story indoor rock climbing area. The ensuite bathroom features a walk-in shower with glass enclosure and double vanities with plenty of storage. At the end of your day of hiking/skiing/golfing, enjoy a soak in the jetted soaker tub while enjoying the mountain view prior to climbing into the queen size bed. You’ll wish you could stay forever.

The upper level is also home to the 2nd bedroom, featuring an ensuite bathroom, large closet and queen bed. Use the office area to email all your friends and tell them what a great time you are having in the Canadian Rockies. The home features commercial quality wireless internet access to stay in touch at work and keep the kids online and happy after a day of adventure. If you haven’t gotten enough of the views from the numerous windows, take a stroll on the large balcony that wraps around the side of the home, and connects to the even larger balcony down below.

Lower Level

If you are travelling with kids, they will love the lower level! The lower level is the ultimate sleepover area! It features a bunk room with 3 single beds, double futon, two single futons, ensuite bathroom, media room, ping pong table, foosball table and access to the 3-story indoor rock climbing area, with bouldering wall*. For entertaining, enjoy use of the large wet bar to mix your favorite cocktails, or pour a glass of wine *This area can be locked off so curious kids can look, but not touch. Children must be supervised when using the climbing area.

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.

We love the home. It was extremely spacious and perfect for our family. We have visited Canmore several times and this was by far our best rental.

Beautiful and spacious home was the icing on the birthday cake!

  • 5 of 5

Ten of my closest friends and family spent the week in Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise celebrating my big 4-0. What a perfect way to celebrate the next chapter of life. The views alone are breathtaking. Add in a beautifully maintained mountain home and the week couldn't have been better! We were all lucky enough to have our parents look after the little ones so we were sans kids for the week. The layout was perfect giving each guest their own bathroom and a bit of privacy. The bathrooms were well stocked down to even the shampoo, conditioner, hand soap and Kleenex. In addition, the kitchen was also stocked with not only the usual dishes, pots, utensils, etc. but also with spices, condiments, coffee, saran wrap, etc. Upon arrival we were greeted by Diane and given a thorough tour of the house and its amenities. The house was very clean. The rock wall was a very interesting feature. We certainly had a few bets going throughout the week, it definitely was a lot harder than it looks and a bit more daunting once you are at the top. But to be quite honest we did not spend that much time in the recreation area of the house. The views from upstairs were just too hard to leave and thus we spent most of our time on the main level between the kitchen, living room and outside deck/patio. On the first morning we were welcomed by five (5) male elks grazing just outside our kitchen windows. What a site! I still can't get over how big their antlers were ... I can't imagine what a moose would look like up close and personal. All said and done this house was perfect for our birthday getaway. We would definitely return and more importantly we would definitely recommend this house to others. A few things to note: there is only one TV in the entire house and it is located in the basement. The technology is minimal in terms of streaming and Bluetooth. We actually enjoyed the limited TV options as we did not watch any TV (it would have been hard with the size of our group and the space around the TV) but the sound system and the Bluetooth configuration was a bit tricky. It took is awhile to figure out how to use it as it was not accurately described in the house manual. But these are so minor it's not worth fretting over! Thank you Rundle Vista for a memorable 40th birthday! #whatthebanff

Great place! Swallowed all nine of us with ease. Lots of amenities and loads of things to keep kids entertained. Some great winter walks and some local elk added to the visit. We would happily stay again.

Roomy, great views, great location, well equipped kitchen. WiFi router needs to be upgraded to accommodate # of guests and "hot water reset" was a bit of a nuisance.

That said we had a GREAT vacation

Owner's Response: We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. The Rundle Vista property has always been one of our favourites. The router issue has been researched, and new routers are on their way to Canmore. We agree -- internet is a big priority!
