This is one of the most peaceful locations in Canmore - within walking distance of downtown, a ten minute walk to the shops, restaurants and galleries on main street, and yet Mother Nature is your neighbour and hiking/walking trails are at your doorstep.

Wildlife viewing and birdwatching opportunities abound.
This is an exceptional location for photographers and artists.
On July 1st and New Years Eve you can relax and enjoy the fireworks display from the comfort of our home.

We are a 10 minute drive from the world famous Banff National Park gates and 20 minutes will take you to the Banff town site (more great shopping and dining).
There are 5 golf courses within 20 minutes drive of our home.
