About Lynne or Doug

We loved the mountains and the life style it offers.

Lynne or Doug purchased this house in 1979

Why Lynne or Doug chose Alberta

This is such a fabulous property for many reasons. It has that charm of a heritage home, with all the modern conveniences. It is beautiful with all kinds of interesting areas to enjoy. It is 5 minute walk from downtown Banff with hiking trails and bike rides just outside the door. Because we are a heritage home of over 100 years old, with two large staircases and a hot tub, we are not child friendly. Children have not lived in this home for over 20 years.

What makes this house unique

Close to downtown

Two balconies and front and back yard

Gorgeous charming home in the heart of the Canadian Rockies

Great house in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in late July. 2 adults and 2 adolescents. Very comfortable and enjoyable stay. You can walk to everything in downtown Banff and to a few nearby hiking trails. Short drive to other places in Banff. Lake Louise area also nearby. The house has an interesting layout and is a great space.

The only place to rent in July in Banff. Thankful

  • 2 of 5

The house was big, lots of bedrooms, great location. Mosquitos are like dragons that time of year (July) and there was a heat wave, unfortunately there was no keeping the windows open because all but 2 were without screens and we had 1 small fan. There was lot of memoribilia and furniture so you have to not be bothered by that what some would consider clutter. I would suggest that they get a coffee maker, a single press was all that was available for a large household. We had to go to the local coffee shop and buy a box. Also, it did take a month to for them to issue the return of the deposit.

Perfect home base in Banff

  • 5 of 5

Great place for our party of 7 adults. Enough space for all and enough separate spaces for time apart. Nice amenities including exercise equipment and a lap pool. The photos don't do justice to how nice and roomy the house is.

Very easy walk to center of town. Good home base to visit all the attractions around Banff.

The Godfreys were pleasant to interact with and quickly responsive to our questions.

Charming and spacious home, amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 adults loved our stay at Lynne and Doug's house. It was wonderful to be a few blocks from the great restaurants of downtown Banff and the house is very charming and well kept. We took advantage of the multiple sitting rooms, nice outdoor areas, hot tub, and even an indoor lap pool for some exercise. There are 4 bedrooms and a loft in the house so we had our pick of sleeping spaces. We did note like some other reviewers that since there is a master bedroom not all the bedrooms are equal in size. This was perfect for us as we were adult children and our parents. The house owners were also nearby when we had some questions, and gave us a great tour of the house when we arrived. We would definitely stay here again!

Charming Heritage Home

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 (which included an infant) stayed in this charming heritage home for 16 nights. We were made to feel very welcome by Doug. The peaceful location is perfect for walking to everything in town and for beautiful walks along the the river. It is accessible to Lake Louise and Sunshine for wonderful skiing. There is lots of space so we could all spend time together along with my son and his family, who live in Banff. There is a separate television area in addition to a TV in the master bedroom for those who wish to spend time away from the main living area. The kitchen is well equipped for those who wish to cook their own meals, which we did most evenings. The house was clean and well stocked with towels, condiments, toilet rolls etc. There were no issues regarding storage for our belongings. We enjoyed barbecues, the sunny garden and the outdoor hot tub (although only one member of our group ventured into the pool). As it was warm, we did not need to use the open fire but would be welcome in the winter months. The pump for the pool was noisy but Doug showed us where to turn it off at night so our sleep was not disturbed.

Families travelling with young children should be aware of the open stairs to the pool area. Lynne had informed us about the potential danger but this was not a problem as my granddaughter was always supervised.

This is a house full of character and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for somewhere to stay which offers flexibility and charm.
