Sports & Adventure Activities
We had a wonderful family holiday here. Patricia was friendly, responsive and easy to deal with, both before and during our stay. We especially appreciated the fruit bowl and flowers that awaited us when we arrived, the cleanliness, the practical and beautiful kitchen, the ample space (and bathrooms!) for a family of seven adults to co-exist comfortably, the stunning views, and the proximity to mountain adventure areas. We can't say enough good things about this experience.
We are always delighted to hear that guests enjoy their stay.
Simply Fantastic - Beautiful House
We were 7 adults and 2 children and this house was perfect for us. Very well equipped. Patricia and Tom went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and at ease. Thank you. We were welcomed with a big fruit basket and a binder full of suggested places to eat and visit. I would definitely come back to Canmore and stay at this house. One of the days we were there, we spent the entire day in Banff and had lunch at Magpie & Stump Restaurant. Loved the food. Patricia and Tom have set the bar very high as hosts.
Excellent, comfortable, homey property
Extended family cousins from MS, OK and TX enjoyed a wonderful week in Patricia and Tom's home. It had enough indoor and outdoor areas to allow people to "spread out," or "be together" depending upon their moods and activities. There is a well appointed kitchen with lots of working space and Bar-B-Que grill. We enjoyed ample hot water, a plus when numerous people are trying to get ready at the same time. The home is centrally located to allow easy access to attractions in any direction. With Tom being a bronze sculpturist, an added plus was enjoying various kinds of original art everywhere you looked!!! Lastly, the owners were accessible by telephone throughout the whole stay. Go take the Brewster Columbia Icefield Tour...it will only be available for 5 more years. Chateau Lake Louise meal and Lake Moraine canoeing are also worthwhile.
FIVE (5) STAR HOME...VIEWS...AMENITIES...HOSTS!
Three adult couples stayed at this lovely home for one week during June. It was truly wonderful...a perfect location for hiking & visiting the Banff & Jasper National parks. A very comfortable & spacious home with magnificent views from all directions. Pat and Tom were so hospitable; every possible kitchen & bath supply was available...even fresh flowers & a luscious large fresh fruit basket. Exceeded our expectations! Thank you from your Northern California travelers!
Wonderful Home, Fantastic Views!!!
We had such a wonderful time staying in this gorgeous home. Pat and Tom's home fit 9 adults and 2 babies comfortably. (Such an added bonus that baby cribs and strollers were provided for us to use). The home has floor to ceiling windows that provide stunning mountain views, and wonderful deck seating to sit out with a cup of coffee and watch the sun come up over the mountains. Each of the bedrooms had a comfy bed and again - beautiful views out of all the windows. The kitchen is well equipped and the kitchen table provided a great gathering place for family dinners. We did NOT want to leave, and are already planning our next trip back. Thanks Pat and Tom!
A perfect experience from reservation to check out
We were welcomed with a vase of flowers and a basket of fresh fruit by hosts that soon felt like friends. The house is beautiful and easily accommodated 8 adults and 4 preteens. Decks surround the house with magnificent views of the mountains on all sides. There are walking trails nearby and it is an easy walk to the town of Canmore. The kitchen was well stocked with equipment, dishes and even condiments and spices. The house was very clean, plenty of space in kitchen and sitting areas; decor was perfect and featured Tom's bronze work. Pat has thought of everything; she has anticipated every possible need. She was very welcoming when we checked in, providing information about activities in the area and wishing us a wonderful week.
