Canmore condo description

'This area out here is certainly breathtaking and all the things that were said about the view is true. AMAZING!!!' - Shawn B.

This quaint and cozy 2 bedroom condo has all you will need to enjoy your time away from home. Each bedroom has a queen size bed, full-size closets, CD/clock/radio complete with USB port to charge your electronic devices, and even a mini-library in each room! There's even an in-house weather station displaying the temperature outside and the expected forecast so you can make the most out of your stay here.

The living room has a pull-out couch to sleep an extra two individuals too, accommodating a total of 6 people max. Cozy up to the gas fireplace on those chilly nights, or after a full day enjoying the spectacular Rocky Mountains that surround you, settle in to watch a great flick or your favourite TV episodes on demand on our brand new 48' Flatscreen LED TV. We have a selection of DVDs for your use or movie and TV programming through Netflix.

'We really enjoyed a great time here...We had an awesome vacation and a good rest. Thank you for providing such a comfortable and clean accommodation.' - Allan Z.

Want to unplug and re-connect with the family? Our selection of classic board games and cards will fit the bill on inclement weather days or just to unwind, and don't forget to use our picnic day pack on your outdoor outings. On starry evenings you can even use our high-powered telescope for awesome star-gazing or hunting for the man in the moon :)

The full kitchen includes a fridge, stove, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. We've pre-stocked the cupboards with many pantry items for your convenience, so you don't have to buy all those little extras like spices, salt & pepper, a selection of teas, coffee, sugar, oil and vinegar, etc. Feel free to prepare your meals either in the kitchen or on the propane BBQ on the back patio, or use the communal barbeques that are part of the complex. The 4 piece bathroom also has a stackable washer/dryer for your use, and cleaning supplies are also available.

'Thank you for sharing your home with us. All the extra amenities make it feel like home! What a pleasure it has been to explore this area of the Canadian Rockies and marvel in all it's majesty!' - Dawn S.

Overall, your home away from home has a very 'cottagy' feel to it, and while we don't claim to be a super high-end 5 star place due to the older nature of our building, this is reflected in the very affordable price compared to other listings in this category. Our starting rates allow a party of 4 to enjoy this comfortable apartment for less than $40 each! That's about the same as staying in the local hostel down the road, but here you get so much more, including access to the pool, fitness facilities, hot tub and dry sauna at our partner facility just steps from your door.

Speaking of steps from your door, right outside is immediate access to the recently completed Rocky Mountain Legacy Trail, built to commemorate the 125th Anniversary of Banff National Park. The park gates are just a quick 5 minute drive away, but why drive when you can cycle or roller blade along the Legacy Trail all the way West to Banff townsite, starting right outside your door! (See here for a complete trail description from Parks Canada: http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/ab/banff/activ/cyclisme-biking/Heritage-Legacy.aspx)

If you go the other way (East) down the trail, you're just a short 10 minute stroll to downtown Canmore and the brand new 77,000 square foot Elevation Place (http://elevationplace.ca/). Here you can marvel at Canmore's Indoor Playground with its awesome aquatics centre, lazy river pool, waterslide, world-class climbing gym and so much more. Explore downtown's bustling shops, galleries, pubs and eateries.

Even closer to this apartment (3-5 min walk) are some of Canmore's hidden gems best known only to the locals, including the best family home-cooked meal restaurant in town, the most exquisite fine dining in town, the best wine bistro in town, and a cool pub and patio, all steps from your door! Just ask us about these local hotspots and more when you book with us. Our extensive knowledge of the area can direct you to the best places in town, and the best day trips, making this the perfect base from which to explore this incredible area. We love introducing others to our mountain playground and we know you'll love it as much as we do! Hope to see you soon...

          Canmore is an incredible year-round destination nestled along the banks of the Bow River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, just an hour's drive West of Calgary and only 5 minutes from the Banff National Park. It's close to three amazing ski resorts, Mt. Norquay, Sunshine Village, and Lake Louise, and year-round adventure awaits you at nearby Banff National Park. Nearby there's a near-endless variety of activities including horseback riding, hiking, fishing, snowshoeing, ice skating, ice climbing, ATV trips, even water sports such as rafting and kayaking, and leading Banff attractions including the famed hot springs and many award-winning golf courses. Our Canmore suite provides the perfect location for all these adventures and so much more. Canmore also hosts a variety of festivals and events every year, like the Canmore Folk Festival, Highland Games, Nordic Festival, Winter Carnival, and Party on the Pond.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: We're Teresa and Dave, parents of two young and rambunctious boys who love to play and explore in the great outdoors. Originally from Ontario, we moved to Calgary and the Glory of the Rocky Mountains to bask in the great lifestyle they offer. We don't do this full time, but just to help support our family better and build a better lifestyle in a place we love to call home.

          Why the Owner Chose Canmore:
          We're in the mountains so often that it made sense to get a property here! This gives us the excuse to come in from Calgary that much more, rejuvenating our spirits, our minds, and our bodies, as much as we know it will for you too. Since we're in Calgary you'll be on your own and self-sufficient, but we offer great support via email, through our local guidebooks and resource materials in the condo, and you'll love the local hospitality and incredible mountains. Need we say more?

          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
          We're all climbers in our family, even the kids. Dave in particular has climbed most of the towering peaks you'll see from right outside this property, offering a very unique perspective and intimacy with the local landscape and wildlife. We love being independent and 'unplugging' from it all, and outside of being in a great location with easy access to everything, you'll be in a completely self-contained apartment allowing your own independence and sense of adventure as well. Enjoy!
