Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

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

Why the Owner Chose Dead Man's Flats, AB, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
