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 Alberta

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.

Happy guest

I was impressed. Kitchen was well stocked and the games kept us entertained. Perfect for our group of 8 to enjoy after a hard day on the slopes. Would definitely return.

It is a Great Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit was everything I had hoped for and more. My 3 brothers and I stayed here for 4 nights in early November. This unit has 4 separate sleeping areas which was important for a good night's rest since we are all snorers! The complex is very well cared for and all the amenities, auch as the hot tub, bbq's and exercise room were in good shape. The underground parking is also a nice feature.

The condo unit itself was clean, roomy and very well equipped. Owner Dwain supplied comprehensive instructions for the different lock codes and WiFi. He readily responded to any inquiry that I had regarding the rental.

The location of the complex is just off the Trans Canada and is only a short drive away from Canmore. It made a great jumping off point for sightseeing in the Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise corridor.
