About Dorthe Christensen
Chris Carlson and Dorthe Christensen, residents of Canmore for the past 17 years. Chris grew up in Alberta with an RCMP officer for a dad (Canadian Police Officer) and Dorthe was born and raised in Denmark. We lived in Denmark, Banff, Vancouver and Seattle before settling in Canmore while our two daughters were still in school. We have used VRBOand HomeAway for our own vacation needs many times ourselves and know the concerns facing a guest when booking a place.
Dorthe Christensen purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Dorthe Christensen chose Canmore
Canmore is situated just outside Banff National Park, which means it is still in the mountains, but much less busy than neighbouring Banff. The area offers amazing views, fresh air and a lovely, friendly community as well as world-class restaurants and great shopping. Still, it is only about a 45-minute drive to the city of Calgary and all it has to offer, including a great university for our daughters and a major airport for our own get-aways. We love living here and would like to share our town and area with others through our vacation rental condo.
What makes this Condo unique
We chose this condo because we knew it would be of the very highest quality; we know the builder, and bought our permanent residence from them – exceptional workmanship! We loved the location: All other vacation rental properties in Canmore are further out from downtown, whereas this is away from the busy-ness of downtown, but still within walking distance of everything. Our unit is quiet and has a great view and it has underground secure parking, with 2 parking spots. We handpicked this particular unit with all this in mind before they even started digging.... The amenities of the place are unbeatable – the billiard room, an excellent fitness room and a panoramic outdoor jacuzzi. We also really like that the building has Geothermal heating and is built with sustainability in mind. Also, the building has mix of full time residents and vacation properties – they and we value respect and quietness and we may want to live in the apartment ourselves some day.

This place is great!
We’ve stayed in a lot of AirBnB’s and VRBOs all around the world. I will always choose them over a hotel! However, Dorthe’s home in Canmore has stood out. It was wonderful! We had such an amazing time! We are now actually considering this area of Canada as a place for a future retirement (well into the future!)! I recognize that it is not because of a home rental! My point is only that our vacation was that perfect!
Dorthe was always very prompt in her responses to any questions or concerns I had and nothing but helpful! The condo was very well stocked with everything we needed (including an over abundance of bear spray! We felt very safe!). The park pass was a very appreciated added bonus!
My only suggestion would be to add a better explanation to where the parking lot is...and how to get into it! It was day 3 before we had that mastered (not relying on someone else leaving or arriving for us to get in!). Once we figured it out we did feel silly that it hadn’t been more obvious before, but it was our first experience with that type of garage.
We will definitely be back and if Dorthe will have us, we do plan to stay with her!!
Great Condo in a beautiful setting
The condo is very comfortable and well furnished. And the view from the balcony is spectacular. We especially appreciated the little touches like a stocked pantry and condiment selection. My wife and I were very happy with our week there and can give it the highest of recommendations.
Wonderful vacation spot
We had such a wonderful time at the condo! Everything was exactly as described and Dorthe was so helpful with the Check in process. It was extremely helpful to have a national park pass, as well! Thank you for such a wonderful week!!
Perfect for us
We really thought this property worked well for us. Great location, roomy accommodations, and well equipped. I would definitely stay here again.
This was our first time to Canmore and had a wonderful time. We took time to go up to Banff and do some hiking. This was a perfect location to make a trip’s. The condo was a perfect fit for four people. We also enjoyed sitting in the hot tub after our hikes.
A beautiful condo with outstanding views.
I would definitely recommend this area and the wonderful accommodations.
