Amazing vacation rental in Canmore

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled all over the world and rented some pretty amazing homes over the years with our family, and this ranks at the very top of our experiences. The home is meticulously maintained and is among the best equipped we have stayed in. The location is ideal for hiking, biking and close proximity to downtown Canmore.

Derek was very attentive to our needs and responded immediately to our only concern that we had.

Overall, I would highly recommend this rental home to anyone who is considering staying in or around Canmore. Don't let the marketing machine of Banff tempt you to stay there. Canmore is the place to be.

Perfect spot for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for our 3rd annual ladies getaway. Would absolutely stay here again with a group. Very well stocked, included spices, sugar, whitener & coffee.. even shampoos/conditioners at the sink! Only thing we had to pick up was paper towels and left a roll there for the next group. The one photo that shows the queen and single bed isn't current. The single bed mattress was located in a closet and we had to set up ourselves without a box spring.

Quality of bedding / sheets and towels was great. The hot tub was huge and perfect temperature but had a lot of chlorine, more than normal we thought.. but when we were leaving; we met the guy who takes care of the house and he mentioned that he drains the hot tub after each rental.. so that makes sense. (Which is great)

Very close to downtown and walking paths. We walked the river in Canmore, Grassi lakes, Johnston Canyon & Lake Louise & Lake Moraine.

The only reason I did not do 5 stars was because the price listed is in USD and the conversion to Cad was crazy

Girls Getaway

  • 4 of 5

A great home for a getaway for six cousins. Plenty of room - a very well stocked and beautiful kitchen. Two separate living areas so we could have our own space or all be together. Great location to downtown - easy walk or drive. Great restaurants - ate at five different locations and enjoyed every one. Went on five different hiking excersions - Grassi Lakes, Larch Valley Trail, Upper Kananaskis Lake, the Karst, and a walk around trails in Canmore. Had two shopping days in between. The hot tub and fireplace where a great ending to our day! Response times re reserving our home via emails and/or phone calls - until our return where dealt with promptly. A couple of incidentals where looked after the same day of our arrival. Our property manager was just a phone call away.
