About the Property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Canmore Vacation Retreat is located on what the locals call the 'sunny side' of Canmore. Nestled up on the side of the mountain is a quiet 3 bedroom townhome with picturesque views of the Canadian Rockies from every window throughout the home. It is only minutes away from the new Canmore Multiplex Recreation Centre (Elevation Place) and main street. This quiet, sunny and well maintained home is perfect for couples seeking a romantic getaway or for families and friends who are looking to experience the mountains and creating long lasting memories.

Canmore Rocky Mountain Retreat is a well maintained property with new paint, carpet, window coverings, furnishings and much more. The home is well equipped with 3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and 1 half bathroom, and a spacious kitchen and dining area.

The fully equipped, spacious kitchen is ideal for preparing meals. We have everything you need from baking cookies and pizzas to cooking a gourmet meal. This is our home away from home so the kitchen is fully stocked with the exact same high quality cookware as we have in our family home. For those of you who like to cook, you will appreciate working with a full set of razor sharp chef’s knives and several cutting boards. Appliances include stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, filtered drinking water, coffee machine, toaster & blender. For those who like to grill, we have a high quality, stainless steel BBQ that uses natural gas eliminating the need to fuss with propane tanks.


Our living space is comfortable and relaxing with mountain views and a large picture window to let in the Alberta sunshine. For those nights when you want to relax at home we have a Sony Flatscreen TV with Apple TV and Netflix. As well, we have a Bose sound system to play your favourite music.

The home can comfortably accommodate up to 7 people (6 adults / 1 child). The bedrooms contain a queen size bed, a double bed and a bunk bed with a double on bottom, twin on top.

Do you drive an electric vehicle (EV)? We've got you covered. We are the only private property with a 90 amp high speed charging system with a J1772 plug. It is one of the fastest charging stations in Canada.

The home is strictly pet and smoke free. We do our best to use only environmentally friendly cleaning products for the comfort of our guests and for the betterment of our environment.

Canmore is favoured as one of the most popular 4 season family vacation destinations in Alberta. There are a number of terrific hiking trails of all levels just steps away from the front door. This enchanting mountain playland is sure to capture your heart and create fond lasting memories. With all that Canmore Rocky Mountain Retreat has to offer, it is an ideal spot to spend a few days or weeks.

FREE AMENITIES included with your stay are as follows:

1) FREE UNLIMITED use of high speed wireless internet.
2) FREE UNLIMITED long distance telephone calls to anywhere in North America.
3) FREE use of a National Park Pass during your stay. (Saving you a minimum of $20/day)
4) FREE UNLIMITED movies
5) FREE UNLIMITED 90 amp high speed charger for your EV.

If there is anything else that you need to make your stay more comfortable and enjoyable, just ask and we will do our best to accommodate all reasonable requests.

If you have special requests, we will try our best to accommodate, i.e.: arranging for the use of a local mobile phone to avoid expensive roaming and long distance charges, arranging discounted long distance overseas calling at mere cents per minute, in-home masseuse. Cost recovery and a nominal surcharge may be applicable. We will gladly discuss this with you in advance.

Car: Recommended

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Canmore, AB, Canada:
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.
