No expense has been spared in the construction of this property. Separate, private entry, 9-foot sound-proofed ceilings, hydronically heated floors, gas fireplace and in-suite laundry are just a few of the conveniences you’ll enjoy.

Our price includes weekly maid service and linen change for stays 14 days or longer.

Each of the bedrooms has hotel-quality beds and linens, a dresser, mirror, cable television and DVD player. The bathroom has a separate tub/shower room making it very share-able whether you're traveling with your family or your friends. It has a sizable sink and plenty of shelf space for toiletries.

In the kitchen you'll find everything you need to prepare meals and a full-size fridge to keep leftovers and groceries. Everything you need to serve a dinner for four in the adjacent dining room is provided. Everything you're used to having at home in your kitchen is here, full size.

In the living room, you'll find a big-screen TV with cable to watch your favourite shows. Everything has been decorated stylishly neutral with lovely artful touches throughout.

About Mindy Lamont

Our family of four has been operating Glenora House since 2007. Over the years we have met many fantastic people from all over the world and gained many friends. What started out as a necessity has evolved into a passion. Now we wouldn't have it any other way!

Mindy Lamont purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Mindy Lamont chose Alberta

We purchased the original property at this location in 2001 with the intent to build anew someday. In 2007, we began construction on Glenora House and completed it in September 2008.

What makes this apartment unique

You really can't ask for a better location. It's just loaded with wildlife, trees, walking paths, charming homes, yet just a 10-minute drive from downtown, Old Strathcona, West Edmonton Mall, and even shorter to the Royal Alberta Museum, Alberta Legislature, and Telus World of Science. Grocery, pharmacy, banking, and restaurants are just around the corner. It's a fantastic spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The suite had everything I needed and the hosts are friendly and helpful. It's a beautiful place to stay in a great neighbourhood. I would recommend Glenora House to anyone.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot remember ever staying at in more comfortable and hospitable space! Over the years I have stayed in everything from 2 star to 5 star accommodation of all kinds, and found this suite to be one of the most perfectly suited spaces I have ever had the opportunity to enjoy.

The suite has a fantastic bathtub and very comfortable bed! It is cosy, well maintained, and very private. There is a kitchen, large screen t.v.'s, private entrance, laundry room with excellent washer and dryer - as well as a sweater dryer and dowels to hang items. It really does have everything the traveller could need or want. Anything you may find missing, is only minutes away.

To top it off, booking/payment/check in/out is simple and convenient. Any little problem or inconvenience was taken care of quickly and without fuss - I booked in the morning and was checked in that afternoon.

I was under immense stress during my stay here, and brought a bit of chaos with me which resulting in my being a somewhat difficult guest to deal with. I locked myself out, needed help getting the t.v. (Netflix) to work, etc. Yet, was always treated with the utmost kindness, respect, and patience - probably more patience than I would have had if our roles were reversed.

I cannot say enough about this space and the owner, and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable and uncomplicated stay in an amazing and beautiful suite!

Great stay at the Glenora House!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed the suite in the Glenora House for a month. From start to finish it was a great experience. Booking was easy and arrival was smooth and uncomplicated. I arrived at the beautiful home, entered my passcode to the private entrance and moved right in. So easy and I felt very welcomed. The suite is cozy and comfortable. The sofa, the fireplace, the beds.....all made for a relaxing stay. The location was great too....a close drive to anywhere in the city. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends!

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay! We stayed as a family of 2 adults and 4 kids under 9. Lots of room. Very clean suite. Loved having our own "house" after a long day of exploring. Beds were very comfortable. Having a washer and drier meant we didn't have to pack as many clothes. I was expecting a crib for the baby as that is what was listed in the description, it turned out to be a pack and play playpen, but it worked fine. We did hear the dog a couple times each day, but since the suite is well insulated, it wasn't that loud. Barking only lasted a minute or 2. I am sure the folks upstairs heard our kids much more than we heard their dog!

This was our first VRBO experience, and definitely not our last! Over all, fantastic place to stay-would stay again in a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are very careful to manage the household pets so as not to interfere with out guests enjoyment in any way. The dedicated furnace, sound proofing and our own due diligence go a long way. The sound proofing is really excellent and we never hear anything. The "crib" misnomer is kind of a funny thing. I had the same experience in hotels when I had little ones so I assumed a playpen was just called a crib and I was the last to know. Anyway, it's a play pen :). Thanks again! I hope we see you all again.

Place is nicely decorated and very clean. Beds are comfortable and so close to major attractions. Mindy was a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating. Will definitely be staying there again and told many of our BC friends about this lovely gem!

Fabulous accommodation!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well-equipped beautifully appointed 2-bedroom close to City Center on a quiet street near transportation. It was spotlessly clean with comfy beds, living room with a gorgeous fireplace and beautifully designed decor. Loved the separate bath/shower providing easy bathroom access. Mindy was so helpful in suggesting places to go in Edmonton. We loved every minute of our stay and hope to return again soon.
