Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in Canmore, at Canmore Crossing, 1120 Railway Ave., 5 minutes from the eastern gates to Banff National Park. Why stay in a small hotel room with no view or amenities, in a noisy area of town when you can have your own condo in a great central location for about the same price. Just minutes to most of what you likely want to do in Banff, Canmore and surrounding area.

We may also do exchanges at certain times of year - just send us an e-mail to inquire.

You can leave the condo and walk to many restaurants, pubs, shops, even Starbucks (to prove the unit is in the center of things) in less than five minutes.

About Laurie & Larry

Larry is a serial entrepreneur. Having spent much of the 90’s at Microsoft, since 2002 he has helped to create and run a number of Internet and high tech companies. Larry is currently starting a company that helps other people to buy vacation rental properties around the world. Just do a web search for 'How To Buy A Vacation Rental'

Laurie is a visual merchandiser who travels across Canada for her work.

Both of us are avid travellers. We own 5 vacation rental properties with Laurie managing the bulk of our rentals. Together we’ve spent many months travelling the world (North America - 5 provinces, over 20 states) (World - 10 countries and numerous territories) not counting places we’ve been to individually. Our goal is to do a good job exploring this great world of our in the time we have here.

We are open to trading time at our properties during the off peak seasons. All our properties are fantastic to visit year around.

Laurie & Larry purchased this condo in 2002

Why Laurie & Larry chose Alberta

We bought at Canmore Crossing, in Canmore, about 5 minutes outside the eastern gates to Banff National Park for the following reasons:

We have a fantastic mountain view

We love the town of Canmore. We like the fact that is isn't as touristy as the Town of Banff but still a great mountain town.

We like our central location between the new downtown core and the old quant downtown.

We love that once we are at our condo we can walk around the downtown core for shopping and restaurants.

Our location is nicely removed from the Trans Canada Highway and situated in such a way that we get very little traffic or train noise.

We decided to buy in Canmore Crossing because its location and amenities made it a special mountain getaway location.

Very nice and well kept condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice and well kept condo. The Condo was conveniently located, and an easy walk to a Safeway grocery store that had very good prepackaged salads which we took with us on picnics. We also appreciated the laundry detergent being there. Many thanks to the owners.

Great place for touring all the Parks !

  • 5 of 5

How can anyone stay in a standard room in a hotel when properties like Laurie & Larry's are available to rent? With all the comforts and space of home we don't travel any other way unless it is only a one night stay. What a view out the large window ! (Except one day, particularly, when they were totally gone from smoke !) Directions to the building and entering the garage and unit were impeccable. Very good detail. That continues when you are in the unit as it very well equipped.

Great base to explore the Rocky Mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodations in Canmore. The condo was clean, well equipped and the pictures showed a true representation of the home. The location was perfect. Very close to grocery stores, pharmacies, liquor stores etc.

Ideal accommodations for traveling with a family and the view was amazing!!

Very nice condo, perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Only drawback was that it was very warm in the condo especially upstairs in the loft which made it uncomfortable for sleeping even with windows open. We visited in late March. Otherwise the place is very clean and comfortable, the underground parking is nice and you cannot beat the location. Walking distance to downtown with great restaurants and shops. The building was nice and the entire process was seamless. I would recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. For future guests. We do have an air conditioner for the condo but it is stored away in colder weather (roughly October to May). Very sunny days you need to close the blinds while you are out during the day. The condo has very large windows that look out to the mountains. Heat from the sun through the windows can warm the condo loft up even in March when it is likely below 0 Celsius (32 F).

Map

Car: recommended

Located in downtown Canmore with an easy walk to the old downtown main street and all of the shops and restaurants. Easily access Policeman's Creek walking trail and gain access to the other hiking trails in Canmore from there. Easy 5 minute drive in to Banff National Park or Kananaskis Country (Canmore Nordic Centre and about 15 minutes to Spray Valley Provincial Park). Canmore is surrounded by National and provincial parks and our condo is in the centre of it all.
