About Dorthe Christensen

Chris Carlson and Dorthe Christensen, residents of Canmore for the past 14 years. Chris grew up in Alberta with an RCMP officer for a dad (Canadian Police Officer) and Dorthe was born and raised in Denmark. We lived in Denmark, Banff, Vancouver and Seattle before settling in Canmore while our two daughters were still in school. We have used VRBO for our own vacation needs many times ourselves and know the concerns facing a guest when booking a place.

Dorthe Christensen purchased this condo in 2009

Why Dorthe Christensen chose Alberta

Canmore is situated just outside Banff National Park, which means it is still in the mountains, but much less busy than neighbouring Banff. The area offers amazing views, fresh air and a lovely, friendly community as well as world-class restaurants and great shopping. Still, it is only about a 45-minute drive to the city of Calgary and all it has to offer, including a great university for our daughters and a major airport for our own get-aways. We love living here and would like to share our town and area with others through our vacation rental condo.

What makes this condo unique

We chose this condo because we knew it would be of the very highest quality; we know the builder, and bought our permanent residence from them – exceptional workmanship!

We loved the location: All other vacation rental properties in Canmore are further out from downtown, whereas this is away from the busy-ness of downtown, but still within walking distance of everything.

Our unit is quiet and has a great view and it has underground secure parking, with 2 parking spots.

We handpicked this particular unit with all this in mind before they even started digging....

The amenities of the place are unbeatable – the billiard room, an excellent fitness room and a panoramic outdoor jacuzzi.

We also really like that the building has Geothermal heating and is built with sustainability in mind. Also, the building has mix of full time residents and vacation properties – they and we value respect and quietness and we may want to live in the apartment ourselves some day.

Welcome to the quaint mountain town of Canmore, just 45 minutes from Calgary and 20 minutes from Banff. Canmore is situated in the Canadian Rockies, just outside Banff National Park, with world class skiing, hiking, mountain biking, golfing and fishing right at your doorstep.

Spring Creek is Canmore's most luxurious condominium development! It’s extremely well located, only a 6-minute creek-side walk from downtown Canmore, which is home to many restaurants, pubs, shops, groceries and art galleries. It’s also a 10 minute walk from the newly opened $40 million Elevation Place, a unique gathering centre. This brand new recreation facility has a fabulous aquatic centre, which includes a public eight-lane swimming pool, a lazy river, and water slide. It also houses a library, art gallery and a fantastic climbing wall with heights from 15 to 45 feet. Yoga studios and dogsledding tours are also within walking distance and helicopter tours just a short drive away. Something for everyone!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on our Canmore/Banff vacation! The condo was perfect for our trip. We met up with some friends that we vacation with and all four of us (two couples) were pleased with the beauty, cleanliness and convenience of the condo. Dorthe was very quick answering any questions that we had. The condo comes with everything you need to go out for your hiking and sightseeing adventures, including a cooler and bear spray. The only thing we had to add to the list of needs was bar soap for the showers, but otherwise paper products, plenty of towels, dish and laundry soap, condiments and some spices and other kitchen items were fully supplied. The beds and furniture were comfortable and the condo is more spacious and beautiful than the pictures even show. We would happily stay in this condo again when visiting the area. For those going...don't miss the Ink Pots hike- we didn't get to enjoy it this time around and were sorry, but it is worth it! Also, Mystaya Canyon-take some side trails-beautiful! And don't miss Gauchos Brazilian Steakhouse-delicious!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful feed-back! We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the things we provide for our guests. It is correct that we don't use bar soap (for environmental reasons), and we are sorry you missed it, but hope that most of our guests are happy using the shower gel that we do provide. We hope to have you back in the future and if you remind me, I'll be happy to leave some bar soap for you next time. Warm regards, Dorthe

Felt like home. Simple an amazing, accommodating stay...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Canmore was such a pleasant and seamless experience. Dorthe's condo felt like a home away from home. She was extremely accomodating and made sure my wife and I had everything we needed in the house. She even sent us directions to the condo around all of the construction! We loved the town of Canmore. It's not as busy as the town 20 minutes northeast and the food/shops in my opinion are way better!

We spent 3 nights in a cabin near Lake Louise, and one night on Moraine Lake. Honestly, the wife and I were talking about how we should have spent 7 nights at Dorthe's condo as opposed to just 4 nights. That's how comfortable we felt.

After hiking in the Kananaskis, Yoho, and Banff, it was so relaxing to kick off our boots and jump into the hot tub (one floor up). All dinnerware is available for you for your family meals. The wife and I ate our dinners out on the balcony because you have an incredible mountain view of the 3 sisters. Towels were readily available. No need for bottled water before the hikes because you can fill up right from the fridge. The cleanliness of the condo also impressed us a lot. Before leaving, we even did all of our laundry from the trip!

Overall experience, 5 stars. I would book with Dorthe over any hotel in Banff. It's such a simple drive to anywhere you need to be.

We will be in touch in the future!

beautiful condo, everything you need and more.

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed and more than we expected. The view has changed due to new buildings in place but you can still see plenty of mountains from the porch. If we are ever in the area I would certainly rent this condo again. The owner was also great to work with.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Just to clarify for other potential guests: The view has not changed. The building next to our building was there before ours and the photos are taken from the balcony and are accurate. We chose our unit very carefully - pre-construction - to make sure we would have a very quiet place facing the court yard and with a beautiful view of the mountains. Although the Spring Creek area is expanding, there will never be any new construction built in front of or next to us and thus, no construction noise either. Warm regards, Dorthe

Great location for 3 week stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for three and a half weeks. My husband worked part time from the condo and the wifi worked perfectly. He was so happy to be working comfortably with great views, using the balcony quite a lot.

The Spring Creek location in Canmore works very well as you can walk all around town for restaurants, shopping, hiking and biking. Within Rundle Creek Lodge we thought this condo's location was excellent, as it was away from the hotel construction, not on a street, and faced a beautifully landscaped area between buildings with views of the mountains. I had researched many VRBO locations, and after being there, realized I chose very well.

Dorthe, the owner, was very accessible and had lots of advice for things to do. She was very responsive to all our concerns and was easy to work with.

If you like to cook as we do, this condo works well. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious.

We used the sofa bed for a few days when we had extra guests, and that was probably our only negative. But then again, sofa beds are never very comfortable. If you're used to them, this was probably just fine. I will say the beds in the two bedrooms were extremely comfortable, and we slept in every day :)

Overall, we thought staying with Dorthe was a great value - a wonderful location that felt like home.
