About The Owner

My husband and I love the mountains. There is something about getting away from town and this setting is perfect for us. We love to be active and there is so much to do in this area, regardless the time of year. In the summer we love to hike, golf and mountain bike in the area.....Winters its cross country skiing. Canmore also has a host of things going on all the time so we like to be there for the Celtic games and the folk festival, sometimes there is great entertainment at the nearby casino or the Drake pub. Our grandsons love it there as well, so we try to bring the family out as much as we can. Great memories are forged on each visit to the mountains. Dwain and Cheryl, Edmonton, Alberta

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why The Owner chose Dead Man's Flats

There are so many things to do and see in this area. Everyone knows Banff which is only a 20 minute drive down the road but there is tons to see and do around this area. The 1988 winter olympic cross country facility at the Canmore Nordic Center is a great place to go in winter or try the world class downhill ski tracks at Lake Louise, Sunshine, Mt Norquay. Boat tours of Lake Minnewanka, Helitours at the Stoney Nakoda Casino or Horseback riding at Brewsters. There is world class golf courses at Banff Springs, Stewart Creek, Silvertip and Kananaskis. White water rafting and hiking is available everywhere including right from the condo. The Bow River is known world wide for some of the best trout fishing and it is a short walk from the door.

What makes this condo unique

We decided to purchase a property that was close to but not in town. One of our favorite things to do is book an adjacent campsite at Three Sisters along the Bow River and sit around the campfire....and then walk back to our condo when we run out of wood.

It was very comfortable, nicely furnished, clean and had a fabulous view. It was perfect for our sisters weekend. We liked that it was only 4 km into Canmore. Close enough to go back and forth but outside town enough to feel peaceful and relaxing. We were very grateful for Dwain's hospitality and kindness. We would highly recommend staying here.

Lovely and clean place! Thoughtful owners

  • 5 of 5

The place was great and very comfortable for us. The owners thought of some very nice extras which was a pleasant surprise. We rented three different units in this particular property and this one was by far the best! Would stay again provided there is good internet service which was in the process of being upgraded. This is a must because cell service in the area is not good due to the mountains. The beds were clean and comfy. Lovely decor as well. The owners provided plenty of towels and washroom necessities as well.

Owner's Response: The kitchen drain was plugged from grease and coffee grounds being poured into the sink from previous guests. This affects the washer and dishwashers ability to drain. A service call was required to auger and clear the drain. The dishwasher and washing machine are now good to go

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We booked here for a family vacation and it was great. It was quiet, clean, and not far from Canmore. We used the jacuzzi and the common barbecues. The wifi was a bit slow, but everything else was great!
