About Mark

I've been in the Calgary area since 1996 when I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan as an Engineer and a fledgling rock climber. I've had Canmore as my back yard since the day I moved, and it was always my dream to own a property there. In 2007 that dream came true when I purchased the condo and have been sharing it with guests ever since.

Mark purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mark chose Canmore

I chose to buy this condo not only because it was spacious and comfortable, but because of its central location. Renting the unit out was already in the plans at the time it was purchased, so location was everything.

What makes this condo unique

If you're hanging around Canmore for the day, there is no need to get into your car. Everything from shops to restaurants, grocery stores to liquor stores and even the new Elevation Place recreation center is within a 5 to 10 minute walk from the condo in the gorgeous scenery of the Bow Valley.

Melissa's challenge weekend '07

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay at Mountain View Lodge. We came out to attend an event in Banff but were able to avoid the hassels of finding accomodations there, parking an extra vehicle and fighting the crowds for dining. The location was perfect. The unit was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

Wonderful Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a wonderful place to hang your hat to spend a weekend/week in an amazing part of our country. It was clean and literally right in an awesome spot to enjoy the town. The couch and chair in the living room could be up-dated but otherwise we will be staying here again <3

Thank you Mark for sharing your beautiful condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your awesome review! I'll take your comments on the couch and chair under consideration. They have had their fair share of love over the years.

Lovely and large condo in Canmore

  • 5 of 5

Overall this home was fantastic!

-The living room area is very spacious and cozy all at the same time

-The kitchen is lovely and well-stocked with cooking utensils

-The tile floors are heated!

-The bathrooms and bedrooms are nice

-Mark was very responsive to my inquiries

-less than 1 minute walk to grocery store, coffee, liquor store, pretty much anything you could need!

The two cons are the following:

-The mattresses are very hard. So this may be a pro to some of you, but I didn't love it.

-The pull-out couch mattress is paper thin, we had to layer some comforters on it to make it more sleepable. If you have more than 4 guests staying with you, you may want to keep this in mind.

Even with the non-preferred mattresses, this place was still so awesome that it deserves the 5 star rating!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive and honest review Erin! I'm not sure if you looked, but there should have been a memory foam in the hallway closet that I keep there specifically for the pull out couch mattress, or to use on the beds if someone needs it. I find the mattresses a bit hard myself.

Great location, nice place!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Canmore and at Mark's place. It's in a great location -- within walking distance of a grocery store, shops, and restaurants. The building is nice, secure, and quiet.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a really nice stay in Canmore at Mark's place. The apartment was a spacious two-bedroom centrally located in Canmore. Across the parking lot is a Save-On foods, and the apartment is within walking distance of several good restaurants. A great place to spend a few days if you like to ski, hike, or just hang out in the mountains!
