Banff National Park is world-renowned for its majestic peaks and glacier lakes, amazing activities, sightseeing and wildlife sighting opportunities.

The condo itself is a short walk away from downtown Canmore and the finest shops, galleries and restaurants in the Bow Valley. This location is steps (1 min walk) away from key services like grocery (Safeway), liquor, postal, banking and coffee shops. Across the road from the condo is access to the huge downtown network of walking trails, don’t miss a stroll around the Bow River and the historic bridge, it is a local favourite.

For the same price you receive these extra’s: panoramic wall of windows with magnificent Rockies views, balcony to step outside and enjoy the crisp mountain air, fully stocked kitchen and dining room, comfy lounge and a extra loft bedroom. It is a perfect ski getaway, hub to explore the Canadian Rockies, romantic getaway or quite simply a retreat from the hustle and bustle! Relax, unwind and rejuvenate in the magical mountains!

OTHER IMPORTANT NOTES:

INDEPENDENT TRAVELER - This unit is best suited for the independent traveller. We are nearby but unable to respond to all issues immediately. We are not a hotel or a vacation rental company we are an independent condo owner and manager and therefore we and our guests do not have access to 24 hour hotel services. We do our best to resolve issues as fast as we can, however if something breaks during your stay we may or may not be able to fix immediately.

ZONED VACATION RENTAL - This unit is in a legal vacation rental zone in Canmore. Many units and listings are not which can be potentially disruptive for your vacation. It is located in the downtown core away from the Trans Canada highway.

CORRESPONDENCE: Email is the best way to correspond as we have full time jobs and are not always available to receive phone calls.

FEES: For the fastest quote, hit the book it button for full pricing.

NATIONAL PARK PASS: We keep a National Park Pass in the condo for guest usage; however we do not guarantee it will be there as guests sometimes lose it. This is a $130 value for guests to travel in the National Park.

About Danielle Powell

This unit is owned by Danielle and Jeff. Danielle is a former long term resident of the Bow Valley and still works in the Bow Valley providing high caliber VIP travel services.

Picture is taken from top of Temple Mountain high above, Lake Louise. Now that is a view worth hiking for!

Danielle Powell purchased this condo in 2005

Why Danielle Powell chose Canmore

This property is special due to its central location in the valley which affords panoramic views from almost every location in the condo. The alpen glow at dawn and dusk is an attraction in itself. This condo is rustic, cozy and comfortable, but essentially it is all about the amazing mountain views, which can be enjoyed from inside the condo through the two storey wall of windows.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location!

This condo truly is in the middle of the downtown with walking access to main street. It was one of the original condo developments in Canmore and due to this has the best location. Most other condo units are situated along the Trans Canada highway. It is so nice to leave on foot and navigate the town trails, stroll by the winter skating pond or over the historic mining bridge along the Bow River then hit the many cafes or restaurants in the quaint downtown to refuel.

The best part of my time here is getting out and enjoying the outdoors. After a good day of hiking or skiing, soaking in the roof top hot tub with its 360 panoramic views can’t be beat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Danielle,



We just wanted to write and let you know how much we enjoyed our Chirstmas holidays at your condo in downtown Canmore. The location was superb, we skied 4 different ski resorts during the day, popped out and walked downtown for dinners to the fabulous restarants and pubs around town. We explored many of the walking trails from the trail head across Railway Ave and found everything to be superb value .



Thank you for allowing us to decorate our own Christmas Tree, we bought a real one and hand made most of our decorations. It was lovely, very special for the kids, particularly seeing the snow on Christmas Day! Banff and Lake Louise is a winter wonderland, what Christmas fantasies are all about. This was our first Christmas in Canada but not our last. Philip and Helen, London, UK.

VIEW OFF THE CHARTS, COZY, CLEAN & COMFORTABLE!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a short stay in this beautiful condo, WOW! From the instant we opened the door we were blown away by the 180 degree panoramic mountain view. All the creature comforts of home, fully stocked kitchen, nice linens & cozy fireplace. This was the perfect home base to discover nearby Banff National Park. In fact, we loved how quiet Canmore was, easy to navigate and close to all conveniences such as grocery, restaurants and any services. Will definitely be back...we LOVED this place! Thank you so much Danielle for sharing your amazing mountain home! We will be back!

Good Location

  • 3 of 5

Good location of the Cozy mountain Condo Canmore, located opposite supermarket and other shops .

Peaceful apartment easy to walk into town . Lots of things to see and do around Canmore and the locals are lovely . Great walks all around the area . Banff is only 20mins away and local bus very good .

The Condo is a good size beautiful view out over the mountains . Only thing we did not like was the open plan bedroom upstairs with an open plan bathroom looking onto bedroom ,no privacy at all .There is as solid half balcony you can look over and view sitting room below and the other people downstairs in sitting room /kitchen can hear everything if your in the bathroom.

Cleaning crew should be a little more observant to crumbs and wrappers in-between sofa cushions and socks and things under dressers plus it looked like it had not been vacuumed in a while under the chest of draws.

Other from that, had a fun filled time in Canmore. Great Town to visit.

Owner's Response: We graciously open the doors of our Canmore apartment (valued at nearly a half million dollars), to guests trusting them with our property and hoping they will have a quality home base to explore the Canadian Rockies. We are very conscientious of the cleanliness and try to provide good quality furnishing and supplies throughout. Based on this review we have ordered a deep clean for the next check in. We have an amazing and high quality cleaning crew that looks after our unit. After an extraordinarily busy summer in the Rockies all tourism staff are exhausted and ready for a break. It is possible our crew missed some crumbs for the last check in. Although we expect a high standard presentation of our unit, as mentioned in the unit description I am not in Canmore and can not inspect each check in and nor does our pricing reflect that level of service. As for our unit design, it is unusual and disclosed in the listing description. We encourage guests to read the listing prior to booking. Our unit is priced the same as a standard hotel room but in addition offers panoramic wall of windows with Rockies views, balcony, fully stocked kitchen & a comfy living room over 950 square ft. to spread out. I encourage readers to have a look at the other reviews we have listed here where guests report great experiences. Writing a review online stating our unit is not clean is a big accusation in the accommodations industry and not taken lightly. We have never received a 3 star review in the past and we do not feel 3 stars is an accurate assessment of our lovely apartment. This guest sent us a very rude email the very first day of her stay and at that point ultimately we wanted her to leave and invited her to do so with a full refund if she was dissatisfied. We don’t want rude, unappreciative people staying in our unit however she chose to stay. In 15+ years of providing vacation rental services this is the worst guest we have ever encountered. We would rate this guest the same, 3 stars meaning not welcome to return.

central location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was very well equipped for our needs during our stay. The kitchen is very well stocked. It is very centrally located and an easy walk downtown.

The second bedroom, with en-suite, is open plan mezzanine style. I was not aware of this as it is not explicit in the description. This was not a problem for us but it may not suit everyone.

The large windows allow great views of the mountains, the early morning sunrise and the evening sunset but unfortunately the large windows also meant that the afternoon sun shone into the apartment and onto the kitchen area in particular as not all the windows had blinds this made the apartment very hot during the day and there is no air conditioning. However, Danielle had contacted us and given advice on the use of the fans to try and reduce the temperature in the apartment. I think the weather was uncharacteristically hot for the few days we were in Canmore. The balcony was a great asset and we sat out here each evening and made use of the BBQ. The views are really lovely at that time of the day with the changing light on the mountains as the night draws in and the air becomes cooler.

The secure underground car parking was very useful and give good piece of mind.

We really enjoyed our stay in Canmore. The town is very pretty with lots of restaurants, coffee shops and interesting art galleries.

Canmore is a very useful base for visits to Lake Louise, Morraine Lake, and many other scenic locations.

The Visitor Centre is on the edge of town and we found the staff extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

We hope to visit Canmore again in the near future.

Thanks Danielle
