Located in the charming mountain community of Canmore, this 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom condo is in the perfect location for a mountain vacation and can comfortably sleep 4 - 6 people. (Can fit 4 adults and 4 kids)

This single level corner unit is on the third floor of the Canmore Crossing complex and, despite almost 1300 sq ft of open plan space, it still manages to retain a cosy and comfortable feel. It has underground parking and a storage locker for skis and other toys. You’ll have full use of 2 rooftop hot tubs after a day of skiing or hiking with great views of the Bow Valley (including the 3 Sisters). There is also an indoor hot tub and a fully equipped workout room.

The unit has a master ensuite bedroom with a queen sleigh bed and a great view of Cascade Mountain. The second bedroom has an adjoining bathroom and twin beds (which can be put together to make a king size bed). Both bedrooms have ample closet space. As well as the beds we have a sofa bed that is way more comfortable than the traditional ones that are lumpy and poke springs in your back all night. If even more sleeping space is needed, the condo also has a comfortable double air mattress (with electric pump).

The fully equipped, modern and spacious kitchen is ideal for preparing meals. Quality appliances include dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer with icemaker and water filter, stove, coffee machine, toaster & blender The slate floor in the kitchen, entrance way, and both bathrooms have underfloor heating, great for warming the feet during a Canadian winter.

The living room has panoramic views of the entire North-East range of mountains in the Canmore section of the Bow Valley, including Mount Lady Macdonald and Grotto Mountain. Relax on the comfortable leather couches in front of the gas fireplace and take in the vista. One couch is a very comfortable queen sofa-bed (not the old-fashioned hide-a-bed variety) and there is also plenty of room for a double air mattress (also supplied). Cable TV (included Chromecast allows you to stream content directly from your phone or tablet), landline telephone, DVD player (with selection of DVDs) as well as high speed internet are all included.

The balcony has views of the same mountains as the living room, as well as Cascade Mountain to the North West and Mount Rundle to the West - a perfect place for a BBQ.

Upon arrival you'll be provided with supplies including coffee, tea, laundry detergent, dish soap, shampoo, conditioner, etc. If you have small children then you won't need to bring the bulky stuff with you; we run a family-friendly condo and supply a high chair, a bed rail and a playpen. We also keep a National Park Pass at the condo that will give full access to Banff National Park (and any others you may visit, e.g. Jasper National Park).

Our family loves to spend time here (it makes a great base for exploring the surrounding area) and we look forward to welcoming you for your Rocky Mountain vacation at our Canmore mountain condo. If the dates you require are not available please get in contact with us anyway so we can add you to our waiting list in case we get any cancellations.

Minimum stay of 3 nights for Canadian public holidays. Note that if you use the Book It button you will have to pay the damage deposit at the same time as your rental payment. If you would rather defer the payment of the damage deposit until 30 days before check-in, send an enquiry and we will be able to get this set up for you before you pay.

About Tara and Steven Hines

We are a family living in Calgary who love being close to the mountains. We like to ski, hike and generally enjoy all the Rockies have to offer. Before children, we traveled a lot and enjoyed staying in places similar to the one we now offer you.

Tara and Steven Hines purchased this condo in 2012

Why Tara and Steven Hines chose Canmore

We recently bought this property after having visited Canmore numerous times. We are hoping to share our love of the mountains with our daughters and think it will be a great place for family vacations. We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

We really love the location of our condo; it allows you to enjoy the town without needing to use a car. Having the shops so close means you don't have to plan ahead, and you can go out and enjoy an evening meal or night at the pub without having to find a taxi home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tara and Steven made our stay at their Canmore condo very comfortable without any worries or concerns. Their condo is situated in the town center where all convenient coffee shops and grocery stores are located, all literally across the street, and it was very easy to find the place with their detailed instructions for keyless entry. Inside of the condo it was very clean and had a cabin-like decor, with artistic bear and elk paintings and beautiful lampshades placed in the living room. The gas-lit fireplace made the living room very warm and cozy, and it was a pleasant experience relaxing on the couches and feeling warm next to the fire. We had excellent WiFi reception to their fast cable internet in all rooms of the condo. Their kitchen is well-stocked with pots and pans, and we didn't really need to buy any additional spices or oils to cook our meals. Their bathroom had everything needed to take a bath/shower, like towels, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc., and their detailed guest book answered all other questions we had about the place. Overall, we highly recommend staying at this place when visiting Banff or Lake Louise, and as the description says, it's a wonderful for families. Their Discovery Pass, which was in the room and available for use, allows entry to all Canadian national parks free of charge, and it was an unexpected surprise and bonus seeing this pass in the room.

Lovely, spacious, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 2 children for our recent vacation to the Canmore/Banff National Park area. The condo was a perfect "base of operations" for us to explore the national park as well as local Canmore attractions -- just a few minutes' drive to the park entrance, and super convenient to necessities (grocery stores, restaurants, etc.) as well. The property was extremely comfortable, clean and well appointed, with great mountain views. Tara and Steven were extremely responsive and helpful with the few questions we had along the way. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Great spacious condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family. Lots of room and everything we needed. The park pass was also a nice touch. Lots of board games available which we spent our evenings playing. Perfect location right in the centre of Canmore. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing Stay and awesome location !

  • 5 of 5

We as a family, thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The mountain views from all the windows are breathtaking ! The house was spacious and clean. The fact that Starbucks and Safeway are literally at the doorstep was a big plus. The hosts were easy to reach and nice. And the annual pass to the National Park that they have arranged for the guests is a very nice gesture too !

This was one of the best vacation home experiences we have had. Thanks Tara and Steven !

Perfect location, family friendly

  • 5 of 5

The owners are very easy to work with and helpful. The condo is very nice as well. Having underground parking, rooftop hot tubs, park pass and all the extras in the condo made our stay that much better. If you have small children, they have everything you need for them as well. You have mountain views from the deck and living room and grocery shopping is right next door. Its a short drive to Banff. This place is amazing!
