Appliances include stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, filtered drinking water, coffee machine, toaster & blender.

About Rhonda Blair

We are native Albertans and a family of three. We have a young son. The Canadian Rocky Mountains have always played a special role in our lives. It has been our mountain playground for as long as we can remember. We are an active family that loves what the mountains have to offer. In the summers, we enjoy strolling into town and exploring the pathways. We almost always get out on our mountain bikes for a good ride. When the snow arrives, the Rockies turn into a winter playground where we downhill ski at either Sunshine Village or Lake Louise. When we want to stay close to town, we set out to the cross country ski trails at the Canmore Nordic Center for a day of family fun.

We appreciate good food and wine and enjoy cooking. We are well travelled and love experiencing different countries and their culture.

Rhonda Blair purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Rhonda Blair chose Alberta

Canmore for us is both a primary and secondary home depending on the time of year. It is a perfect location where we have all of the amenities and charm of a mountain resort town, without it being over populated with tourism. For us, it is an idilic location for rest and relaxation.

Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations. It was very well appointed, spacious, quiet and extremely clean. The mountain views from the living room and master bedroom were breath taking.

It felt like home as soon as we entered as we could not think of anything that was missing or needed.

The location required a short drive to downtown and the Nordic Center so a vechicle is recommended.

We cross country skied and tobagganed at the Nordic Center and swam at the Canmore Rec Center. All were world class facilities

We did make the short trek over to Banff but to be honest everything we needed was available in Canmore.

We had three of our toddler grandchildren with us and it was surreal watching them playing in the sunny living room with the majestic Rocky Mountains in the back ground.

All involved definitely agreed we should make this an annual event.

Beautiful family home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family holiday in Canmore and Banff. The house was very comfortable and there was plenty of room for us. My chef husband had everything he needed for meal times and the kids loved the Apple TV! The house is very conveniently located. I highly recommend the Canmore Rocky Mountain Resort and hope we get to visit again as the region is beautiful.

Great place to stay for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved the townhouse, it was very nice, clean, and spacious for the 4 of us. The place was just as described and all of us were impressed and happy to have such a nice place to stay after driving and visiting the various national parks. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed using the grill on the deck. We also enjoyed seeing the hoodoos which was only a short walk away. The view of the mountains from the living room is beautiful. The beds were comfortable and we slept soundly as the community was very quiet at night.

The location and proximity to the National Parks was great. Lake Louise was the farthest we went and that was about 1 hour away. We also checked out Canmore, the Nordic center, and downtown. Thanks for the recommendations on where to eat, we enjoyed Crazy Weed, Harvest and the Iron horse, all were good.

Perfect Location for visiting the Canadian Rockies!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as described. It had all the comforts of home. My two adult children came with us and there was plenty of space and the beds were comfortable. We enjoy cooking while on vacation and the kitchen was well equipped. The dishwasher came in handy as did the washer and dryer. The condo is conveniently located just outside the town of Canmore, with easy access to restaurants, shops and a Safeway grocery store. In addition to spending time in Canmore, we visited the town of Banff , Johnston Canyon, Lake Minnewanka, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and did quite a bit of hiking. It was a little more than an hour drive to Lake Louise. The scenery on the Icefields Parkway was breathtaking! We enjoyed taking a drive and spotting the wildlife - it was our favorite activity! Rhonda was very helpful and responded quickly with answers to my questions. The only drawback is that there is no basic cable. We were hoping to watch some regular TV in the evenings. We used Netflix instead. We would highly recommend this condo.

There are numerous activities to do in the Canmore area year round: Skiing (downhill/x-country), Golfing, Fishing, Hiking, Mountain Biking and much more.

Four downhill ski areas, including world-class Lake Louise, are within a 20-45 minute drive from the property.

For nordic skiers, the Canmore Nordic Center, which hosted the 1988 Olympic nordic events is less than 10 minutes away. You will often see Canada’s national team training there. It offers tremendous nordic skiing in the winter and world class mountain biking in the summer. A major upgrade of the facility in the summer of 2005 allows it to host the prestigious World Cup every two years. There are 135 kilometres of groomed, tracked and skate skiing trails, several of which are lit for night skiing.

Kananaskis Country which is only 20 minutes away, also has hundreds of kilometres of cross-country ski trails suitable to all ski levels and techniques.

The Bow River, which runs through the heart of Canmore, offers world-class fishing, and gentle rafting/canoeing. Hiking trails for all skill levels can be enjoyed within steps from our front door as well as in Banff National Park and Kananaskis Country.

For the avid golfers in your party, they will love the five world class courses all within 30 minutes from your door step. Two Robert Trent Jones courses in Kananaskis Country, Silvertip, world famous Banff Springs and Stewart Creek are some of Canada's most beautiful courses and will provide enjoyment for all skill levels.
