About Grace N

I'm a proud owner of this condo, we bought it to spend a few months a year in our retirement. Over the years, we've made many improvements, from the basic builder's lightings to the appliances.

Why Grace N chose Alberta

It is in the best region of all Canada! with four seasons activities and all the conveniences yet remaining a hidden gem, away from the busy, noisy Banff but next to the National Parks! We can go north to Jasper, west to British Columbia (Vancouver), east to Calgary and the 'downtown' shopping or south to explore dinosaur fossils!

What makes this condo unique

Rustic style with peaceful ranges of mountains all around us! nearby paradise of lakes, pines, canyons, waterfalls! wildlife in abundance and yet, we're right at home with our fireplace and hot tub too! steps away from the main shopping area and Main St of Canmore. Pleasant walk to the Bow River, great relaxing stroll in the afternoon and Thurs Farmer Market!

Grace's Place is the place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this great condo as a place to take your vacation near Banff National Park. We had a great 5 nights at Graces Place and superb days exploring the amazing scenery in the area. We even saw a bear on our first trip! The condo is clean, comfortable and we immediately felt at home. The location is perfect with shops and restaurants all within walking distance and just a few minutes drive from the entrance to Banff. Grace was very helpful in the preparations with some great tips on places to visit, directions and instructions were clear and precise, and she always responded to any questions quickly and with a great personal touch. Thanks Grace!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! It's nice to know our guests had a good visit to our house & the region. We try very hard to keep the property in top shape. Canmore is a pretty, friendly town to host visitors to the whole National Park. The bear is the greatest addition! I hope you will come back. The winter there is magnificent. Thanks again, Grace.

One of the best we've stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Grace's Place, from Feb. 12th to the 16th/16 and had an awesome family ski vacation there! The location couldn't be better, with grocery, liquor and sporting goods stores for ski/board waxing and also a Tim Horton's, all within a few minutes walk. Underground parking, ski storage lockers. exercise rooms and 3 different hot tubs to choose from at the end of each days skiing. The suite was spacious, very clean and well-maintained. We had a well-equipped, full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and bbq on a private deck, with a very nice view of the mountains. The price was quite affordable while still offering all the comforts of our own home. Grace was an excellent host and did everything she could possibly do to make our family vacation a memorable and comfortable one. We will most definitely return and will recommend her place to our family and friends. Thank you Grace for everything!

Lovely accommodations in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Canmore is a breathtaking place and Grace's condo was worthy of its surroundings. Located close to downtown, yet extremely quiet, it provides easy access to food stores, restaurants, roads to Banff and the many other extraordinary locations in this part of the Canadian Rockies. The condo is wonderfully decorated/ furnished, very secure, and parking under the unit makes access simple. Working with Grace was a pleasure! She is helpful, flexible, and low key and she genuinely wants her tenants to have a good time. Prior to our stay, we had never met or talked and, in a short time, our conversations resembled those that occur between friends. We appreciated that very much and it gave us a lot of faith that we had made the right choice. We would recommend this region and Grace's condo to any of our friends and relatives, and we will be back.

Min 4 nights stay. Sorry, no smoking or pets. Unit is self served, I have a local housekeeper who attends to misc tasks. Underground parking and limited guest parking on courtyard ground parking. The town has everything: Liquour store, convenient stores, DVD/movie rentals; Banff town has movie theatres and major shopping for tourists. You can rent a car, bikes, skis for the winter and canoes in the summer. Beautiful grounds for outdoor picnics, hiking, sightseeing, lakes & mountains surrounding, you'll never run out of things to do! bring your fishing rods and lots of disc space for your cameras! As all condo buildings, family oriented but after midnight noise level should be at minimum.
