About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located in Canmore, at Canmore Crossing, 1120 Railway Ave., 5 minutes from the eastern gates to Banff National Park. Why stay in a small hotel room with no view or amenities, in a noisy area of town when you can have your own condo in a great central location for about the same price. Just minutes to most of what you likely want to do in Banff, Canmore and surrounding area.

We may also do exchanges at certain times of year - just send us an e-mail to inquire.

You can leave the condo and walk to many restaurants, pubs, shops, even Starbucks (to prove the unit is in the center of things) in less than five minutes.

About Laurie & Larry

Larry is a serial entrepreneur. Having spent much of the 90’s at Microsoft, since 2002 he has helped to create and run a number of Internet and high tech companies. Larry is currently starting a company that helps other people to buy vacation rental properties around the world. Just do a web search for 'How To Buy A Vacation Rental'

Laurie is a visual merchandiser who travels across Canada for her work.

Both of us are avid travellers. We own 5 vacation rental properties with Laurie managing the bulk of our rentals. Together we’ve spent many months travelling the world (North America - 5 provinces, over 20 states) (World - 10 countries and numerous territories) not counting places we’ve been to individually. Our goal is to do a good job exploring this great world of our in the time we have here.

We are open to trading time at our properties during the off peak seasons. All our properties are fantastic to visit year around.

Laurie & Larry purchased this condo in 2002

Why Laurie & Larry chose Canmore

We bought at Canmore Crossing, in Canmore, about 5 minutes outside the eastern gates to Banff National Park for the following reasons:

We have a fantastic mountain view

We love the town of Canmore. We like the fact that is isn't as touristy as the Town of Banff but still a great mountain town.

We like our central location between the new downtown core and the old quant downtown.

We love that once we are at our condo we can walk around the downtown core for shopping and restaurants.

Our location is nicely removed from the Trans Canada Highway and situated in such a way that we get very little traffic or train noise.

We decided to buy in Canmore Crossing because its location and amenities made it a special mountain getaway location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Larry

Just a short note to thank you for the use of your great apartment [condo], we will be recommending it highly to friends who are looking for somewhere to stay in Canada and we had the best time over there.

Kind regards

Clean and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this building last year and it worked out so well that we came back. Again, it was a good decision. Laurie and Larry's place is clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable and the place was quiet ( I would add a throw rug in front the fireplace to up the coziness factor just a touch).

My family loves this location.

Canmore is a great town and a nice alternative to Banff.

Larry was prompt in answering my call when I misplaced the elevator code.

I especially liked the location since it is close to downtown. The Grizzly Paw and Graze restaurants are highly recommended. The craft brew at the Grizz is awesome.

We'll be back.

The condo was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo met all our needs and provided a restful place after a day of hiking and exploring. The views of the mountains provided incredible inspiration! Cranmore is a lovely town with lots of quant shops and healthy restaurants.

Very nice and well kept condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice and well kept condo. The Condo was conveniently located, and an easy walk to a Safeway grocery store that had very good prepackaged salads which we took with us on picnics. We also appreciated the laundry detergent being there. Many thanks to the owners.

Great place for touring all the Parks !

  • 5 of 5

How can anyone stay in a standard room in a hotel when properties like Laurie & Larry's are available to rent? With all the comforts and space of home we don't travel any other way unless it is only a one night stay. What a view out the large window ! (Except one day, particularly, when they were totally gone from smoke !) Directions to the building and entering the garage and unit were impeccable. Very good detail. That continues when you are in the unit as it very well equipped.

Car: recommended

Located in downtown Canmore with an easy walk to the old downtown main street and all of the shops and restaurants. Easily access Policeman's Creek walking trail and gain access to the other hiking trails in Canmore from there. Easy 5 minute drive in to Banff National Park or Kananaskis Country (Canmore Nordic Centre and about 15 minutes to Spray Valley Provincial Park). Canmore is surrounded by National and provincial parks and our condo is in the centre of it all.
