About the property

2BD/2BA - Sleeps 4 - Mountain Views

Located approximately a 1 hour drive from the Calgary International Airport, Canmore is in the heart of Canada's Rocky Mountain playground. Our retreat is a short 15 minute walk or 3 minute drive to downtown Canmore, or a 20 minute drive to Banff.

The condo itself is found at The Lodges at Canmore – Grizzly Lodge. Our cozy top floor retreat consists of 2 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen), 2 full bathrooms, a fully stocked kitchen, in-suite laundry, a spacious living room with gas fireplace, and a large 12x12 patio with a great view. Amenities include an outdoor pool (which is heated year round), three hot tubs, an exercise room, and underground heated parking. Other in-suite perks include a 42” LCD TV w/Blueray in the living room, a 32” LCD TV in the king bedroom, a 26” LCD TV in the queen bedroom, private WIFI, IPod and Android music players, dvd library, and a gas BBQ. For your day trips to Banff, a National Park pass is included for your use.

About Randy Kozak

This is a family owned vacation property. We have lived in Alberta our whole lives. We have travelled around the world and have seen many sights. Every time we come back to Canmore we feel blessed to have such close access to one of the most beautiful, scenic places on earth.

Randy Kozak purchased this condo in 2012

Why Randy Kozak chose Alberta

Our family lives approximately 3 1/2 hours from Canmore. Over the years, we have spent a lot of time hiking, fishing, skiing, and golfing here. Due to this, we finally decided to take the next step and purchase our own little piece of paradise. Due to the amount of time we've spent in this region, we can provide many helpful suggestions to our guests so they can make the most of their visit to this region.

What makes this condo unique

We love the amenities that The Lodges provides. After an active day outdoors, we return to have showers and fire up the bbq to grill some great Alberta beef. We then like to go for a swim in the outdoor heated pool or just lounge in one of the three hot tubs. In the summer, we then sit on our large patio and converse while drinking a glass of wine all the while enjoying the view. In the winter, we pop some popcorn, turn on the tv, choose a dvd from our library, and watch it while sitting by the fire. For those that can't stay awake long enough to watch the movie, our bedrooms are on the opposite end of the unit so they can retire for the night and those choosing to stay for the movie don't have to worry about turning down the sound. During ski season, the underground parking is a bonus as we don't have to spend time warming up our car and brushing snow. This is a vacation property for our family far above being an investment property. Our guests can be assured that we have furnished this place to how we expect in our own homes. We are certain that our guests will feel at home the minute they put down their suitcases.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for the great place. We had a wonderful time. When we come this way again we hope we can stay at your place and will recommend it to anyone traveling to the Banff area. Spent a fun Canada Day in town, swam in the Quarry and watched the parade and fireworks.

Great location with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

The condo at Grizzly Lodge met or exceeded our expectations in every way. Canmore is a great base for skiing, hiking, dog sledding and generally exploring the area. The condo itself is well equipped and clean with comfortable beds. Lots of room to relax around the cozy gas fireplace. The underground parking was a great bonus on extra snowy days. Loved the heated outdoor pool and hot tub!

Very well equiped.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much. It was nice to stay in a unit that has all you need from wine glasses to BBQ tongs. The hot tub is a wee bit of a hike but all in all we were very pleased. We will be back.

Thanks Randy

Great vacation property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this property for almost a week. It was absolutely perfect! Condo was very well equipped, clean and close to everything we needed. When travelling with two kids it is a relief to have a kitchen and laundry available to us! That alone saves so much time and expense! This was a great place to stay, we would absolutely love to come back!

New Year Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in Canmore at this well appointed condo. We found it comfortable with all that we needed for meals and relaxation. The grill was a nice addition. The location is perfect and even in the cold weather was a walk away from all the amenities. We would recommend staying here again. Thanks for leaving the discount card for Murrieta's restaurant. We enjoyed our New Years Eve dinner there.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

There's only good things I can say about this property and its owners - Randy ad Irene.

Booking and check-in were a breeze. The good thing about this place is that reception works 24/7.

The condo is clean, has all the amenities and the kitchen is well stocked. We did not have any problem cooking our own meals, and Safeway is just round the corner.

We would definitely come back next time we are in Canada.

Excellent Stay in Canmore

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well appointed condo. The park pass is an absolute blessing. The Condo is stocked with all necessities and is clean and inviting. The Condo is spacious and has plenty of areas to relax. The grill on the balcony is fabulous. We enjoyed our 2 week stay and will certainly be returning. Canmore is well situated and easy to access all sightseeing in the Banff/Lake Louise areas and is a great base in a beautiful town.
