About the Property
Condo, 2 Bedrooms w/ Queen Beds + Queen Sofa Bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Quote from my Guest Book: 'Beautiful and relaxing holiday! Your condo looked beautiful on the internet and was pleasantly surprised that it was even nicer once here...wonderful holiday!' (Coquitlam, BC)
Nestled just 15 minutes outside of Banff, this tastefully decorated, 1,000 sq. ft., two-bedroom, two-bath condominium features a large formal entry way, a bright, open lounge and dining area boasting hardwood floors, river rock gas fireplace with log mantle, leather sofa set, Canadian heritage antiques, 'rustic' decorative lamps, original mountain artwork, and Mackenzie tartans throughout. There is also a deck that provides spectacular views of the protected wetlands, Aspens, creek and surrounding peaks, including the famous 'Three Sisters.'
The building is located across from a protected wetland habitat, at the edge of Policeman's Creek with meandering boardwalk. With unobstructed views of pretty much nature only, you get the feeling of wilderness seclusion, yet are only a less than 2 minute walk from conveniences of the quaint, yet cultural alpine town of Canmore.
In the living room for your relaxation and entertainment are a television with basic cable, VCR, stereo system, and CD player. And the balcony off of the living room not only provides spectacular trees, creek and mountain views, it also provides a teak bistro set, and a large gas barbecue to fire up that world famous Alberta beef!
The large, fully-equipped, modern kitchen contains tiled floors, dishwasher, microwave, a refrigerator, and cupboards stocked with various condiments, cookbooks, and just about every tool the gourmet chef in you would need to create a fabulous meal.
The spacious, yet cozy master bedroom contains a queen-size bed with rustic log headboard and two closets, while the second bedroom contains a queen-size bed and one large closet. In addition, there is a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room, allowing for a maximum occupancy of six people (rates based on four-person occupancy). Both bedrooms contain high-quality eyelet lace bed sheets, duvets and pillows, as well as vintage bedroom furniture, 'rustic' decorative lamps, original mountain artwork, Mackenzie tartan throw pillows and scarves, and plush berber carpet. The master en suite contains a shower stall, while the second bathroom located in the hallway contains a bathtub/shower combination - quality towels provided in each.
The hallway contains a built-in bookshelf brimming with various paperback books and hard cover coffee table books featuring Canadian and Rocky Mountain art, all of which can be enjoyed while taking in the fresh mountain air on the balcony by day, or cozying up next to the warm fire at night. Also provided for your enjoyment with friends and family are various board games and decks of cards.
The condominium has a large storage room containing a washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, a picnic knapsack (to take on hikes), fans, first aid kit, and various cleaning supplies. Also provided for your convenience is a heated underground garage.
Tasteful rustic, Canadian heritage decor and high-end comfort have been given priority at Mackenzie Creekside. The original mountain artwork done by the owner and her father as well as other Alberta artists, in additional to the Mackenzie tartans and Canadian heritage family photos, help to create a sense of 'home-away-from-home' beckoning you to return to Mackenzie Creekside to visit the majestic Canadian Rockies...

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I'm originally from Calgary and moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1994. I worked for a large medical device company by day and volunteer as a graphic designer/webmaster/events committee member for the Nine Lives Foundation - a no-kill cat shelter in the Bay Area. But I missed the Canadian Rockies so much that I decided to purchase a vacation condo in Canmore and visit the area ~2x/year. It's such an AMAZING part of the world that I can't get enough of! So much so that I recently moved back to Calgary to be closer to my family and start my own creative services business... :-)
Why the Owner Chose Canmore, AB, Canada:
I've always envisioned myself owning a log cabin in the middle on nowhere, but unfortunately, that just isn't feasible (for many reasons). I learned of 'The Boardwalk' building and that most of the condos face the protected wetlands, creek, and mountains, including the famous 'Three Sisters'. I bought the condo sight-unseen because it was the only condo available with that kind of unobstructed views of nature only. You get the feeling of being out in the middle of nowhere, but are yet a 2-10 minute walk from just about everything you need. I decorated the condo to have a rustic cabin-like ambiance, so between the views and the convenient location, it's the best of both worlds!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Located just off of the downtown so walking distance to most town amenities but with views of pretty much nature only... most other condo developments have views of busy streets, parking lots, grocery stores, other condos, etc.
