Canmore chalet description

Looking for your “home away from home” in the heart of the Canmore/Banff/Lake Louise Rocky Mountains for a longer-term stay? Look no further. Our chalet is located in one of Canmore Alberta’s top 5 rated places to stay – and we are proudly & independently owner-operated.

Imagine! A few steps from your car you walk into our pristine, cozy and comfortable Rocky Mountain-themed chalet. Kick back and relax in front of the fire, or head out with your family or companions to our year' round heated outdoor pool and hot tub for a well-deserved soak. Our 900 sq. ft. two-story chalets (maximum of 6 occupants per chalet) have two bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and are fully and comfortably furnished. Our well equipped kitchens come complete with complimentary Keurig coffee makers along with a deluxe selection of KCups. We’ve added slow cooker appliances for added convenience to make those family-friendly comfort meals while you’re out ‘n about enjoying the days. Common area BBQ’s are nestled in our lovely, private common area courtyard and are conveniently steps away from our chalets for your stay-at-home meals as well.

We offer our own private, free, high speed, VERY reliable WIFI and have also have installed Smart/AppleTV/Netflix TV options so you can enjoy hundreds of on-demand movies, TV shows, concerts, WSJ Live, Bloomberg channels for news, and more! You and your family will enjoy and appreciate all the personal touches only an owner would provide.

Situated around our welcoming courtyard, immerse yourself in Canmore's pristine mountain environment. We are within a 10-minute walking distance to downtown Canmore – a wonderful uncomercialized western mountain town that now boasts over 100 unique shops and 75+ gourmet restaurants. There are kilometers of forested walking paths located just outside our doors. You might also want to check out Canmore's new $40M recreation center – Elevation Place – boasting a huge climbing wall, multiple pools, a lazy river, watersides, hot tub, steam room, library, art gallery, drop in fitness/yoga classes and a great work out facility.

The chalets are very close to the BANFF/LAKE LOUISE NATIONAL PARK and KANANASKIS and PETER LOUGHHEED PROVINCIAL PARK – a year-round recreational and scenic paradise right at your doorstep.

We offer one mountain view chalet and three forest view chalets -- all are exactly the same layout, comfortable & cozy interior furnishings and amenities. Each is only steps away from the pool and hot tub, and are located on the quieter side of the resort.

Guests will also enjoy a complimentary FREE signed copy of the owners best selling 140 page Banff & Canmore guidebook. It will make your 'Out'n About' stays with us in every season are truly memorable. Hope to see you soon!

                  Surrounded by the magnificent Canadian Rockies, the town of Canmore is one of the most beautiful communities in Canada. Just an hour and 15 minutes from the Calgary International Airport and five minutes from Banff National Park east gate, Canmore offers a spectacular location with unequalled 4 seasons of outdoor recreational opportunities. World class restaurants and unique, original shopping experiences await you in the heart of some of the world's most breathtaking scenery. Neighbouring Kananaskis Country offers a scenic recreation area made up of more than 4,000 square kilometers of mountain parks.

Year' round cultural events, festivals, art galleries and theatrical programs also thrive here with more than 200 artists and artisans calling our small community home.

                  Canmore is an eclectic mix of old wild west hospitality combined with all the modern services amenities you'd expect in a first class resort community.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: We bought our chalets as vacation property/investments to enjoy with our two daughters while living in Edmonton. We loved Canmore so much, we moved here in 2005. As an avid outdoor family, we've hiked, biked, kayaked, rock-climbed, nordic and downhill skied everywhere throughout our wonderful area -- truly a mountain lovers four season paradise. We know you'll love it too!

                  Why the Owner Chose Canmore:
                  This is by far the most unique family friendly property in Canmore. Only 44 townhome-style units comprise this quaint resort and are all wrapped around a beautiful courtyard that houses a huge outdoor pool that is heated year-round and a fabulous 12-person hot tub. We loved the fact that you can drive right up to your chalet - no elevators, long corridors to deal with while unloading all your gear. It is a full 2 storey townhome concept so there is no one tromping around on top of you either - nice and quiet! There are picnic tables and barbecues beside the pool area that are available to use. There is also a common area movie/games room with a 65' flat screen 3D TV equipped with XBox Kinect, 3D movies and ping pong/foos ball tables everyone will enjoy. A true home away from home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                  - best outdoor pool and hot tub in Canmore! - cozy, comfortable, spacious chalet-style living - no elevators and long hallways to lug all your stuff, no people living on top of you - a true home away from home for the whole family - close to downtown shops, restaurants and the Elevation Place recreation center - a 2 minute walk to 'The Wandering Elk' pub - a 5 minute walk away from the renown Onewellnessandspa.com - Custom concierge & trip planning offered by owner - Apple & Smart TV's with Netflix movies on demand - easy access to the Legacy Bike Trail that goes into Banff - 5 minute walk to the Canmore to Banff 'Roam' bus service - very convenient! - numerous hiking trails right outside our doors - Free signed copy of the owners 140 Banff/Canmore guidebook to help plan your stays - priceless! - Our numerous customer 5 star client reviews speak for themselves
