Overview

About the property

A great spot to rest and relax after a day in the mountains.

please note: the "Avg. Nightly" rate may be in US dollars (as shown by VRBO)

Our 2 bedroom condo will make you feel right at home in the perfect mountain vacation spot. In 2016 all carpet was replaced with laminate flooring. Tile flooring is in the kitchen and bathrooms. We refurbished with fresh paint, new furniture, window coverings, bedding, towels, artwork, shower curtains, and kitchen supplies when we purchased in 2014.

Relax and enjoy the living area re-done in 'mountain' style which includes a rustic gas fireplace, 50' flat screen TV and comfortable, new leather couches. The kitchen is complete with brand new flatware, dishes, coffeepot, spice-rack, wine glasses and useful kitchen gadgetry.

There are two bedrooms - completely re-done with all new furniture and black out drapery. The master suite boasts a beautiful King sized bed, night tables, dresser, and a 40' flat screen TV. The family-friendly second bedroom is complete in 'mountain-cozy' style. The brand new bunk bed hosts a queen bed on the bottom and a twin bed on the top with a TV and a Nintendo game cube. The two bathrooms are clean, spacious and have lots of room for your toiletries.

Relax and enjoy a swim in the outdoor heated pool (open all year long) or one of the lodges hot tubs. The fitness room with change room is located just down the hall.

Canmore is an outdoor vacation location with access to any activity your heart might desire! Whether you want to ski, hike, shop, eat out, golf, visit the Elevation Multicomplex or need a coffee from Starbucks - it's all within minutes of your front door. We are confident that you will find our home away from home the ideal spot for your mountain getaway.

About M Fay

Our family loves Canmore and we always asked ourselves why we don't spend more time here. We improved the condo to our liking and hopefully your liking too.

We are happy to have had people stay from as far away as Texas, Florida, California, Connecticut, Kentucky, Louisiana, Washington, and places in between. We have also had people stay from England and Germany and from places across Canada and from within Alberta.

M Fay purchased this condo in 2014

Why M Fay chose Alberta

The four of us have a variety of interests including downhill skiing, x-country skiing, hiking and scrambling, running on the trails beside the rivers and creeks, and biking. We want to do more though. Kayaking and some more canoeing is on the list. We also like to walk to town and check things out.

Escaping from work, school, and our daily routine at home is what we like best.

What makes this condo unique

The large outdoor pool and 3 hot tubs are a definite attraction for us. We also enjoy being able to barbeque.

Overall we find just a great place to relax after a good day out.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As written in guest book,

"We had an amazing weekend in the mountains and this place was awesome! It is nice to be able to go to the hot tub at cold nights and barbque a bit. The brazilian (friend) was very excited to see snow for the first time! "

Amazing condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely condo! It's a great size and there was so much thought put into the decor, comfort and supplies needed to make this place perfect. The kitchen had everything, including things like zip lock bags, Tupperware, a cooler for picnics, fans and comfortable beds. We never felt the place was hot and we stayed in August.

We loved Canmore as well and we're so glad we opted to stay there instead of Banff. We swam in the pool and walked/ran/biked to town each day. It's a lovey place to stay with awesome trails around the river and town and doesn't feel so touristy. We also biked to Banff and went into the national park most days which is super close and convenient. We really had an exceptional vacation in large part due to the comfort of this lovey place and wonderful town!

Comfy and cozy home-base in Canmore!

  • 5 of 5

Mark was terrific to work with from the start - when I first had questions about renting, sending info on the area w/ suggestions, etc.

My family (hubby and me, and three adult-sized teens, aged 15, 17, 19) rented this VRBO during our stay in the Banff area. Honestly, even though some might not want to drive much at all, after spending an afternoon in Banff, I was so happy to be staying in quieter Canmore. Banff in July was a zoo. Canmore, on the other hand, was pleasant and still a delightful place to spend our evenings. The shops are more artsy than touristy. There are plenty of places to eat, etc. You can rent bikes and bike your way over to Banff, rather than drive, if you are up for it. The walkway along the boardwalk into town is wonderful (minus the mosquitoes!) with lovely views of the surrounding mountains.

The condo itself was fantastic. After a day of adventuring, it felt wonderful to have a comfortable, well-appointed place in which to relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well stocked and inviting. The kitchen, also, had just about everything we needed to make simple meals on the nights we chose to stay in (or serve as a suitable staging area as we packed lunches, etc.). We always found adequate parking in the adjacent lot outside the building (our car had a Thule on it, so we couldn't use the parkade).

It was just what we expected and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again! Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us! :)

Amazing place great owner

  • 5 of 5

We were so very pleased with our rental of this property for a recent trip. It was myself, husband and her daughter with a friend. The layout is perfect with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Everything in the kitchen you could need. The grill was amazing. It is quiet and very very clean. The pool and hot tub's are a nice distraction. This is a great place and value! I really appreciated the parking pass. One thing we didn't plan to do but are so glad we did was drive up to Yoho National Park pass Lake Louise. We ended up canoeing on Emerald Lake it was breathtaking. Such a lovely stay here thank you so much
