A comfortable space for our large group

  • 4 of 5

The great room/dining/kitchen area was ideal for our group - well equipped, spacious and clean. We had 14 adults and 2 kids for a family reunion in July. Knowing the bedroom arrangement beforehand would have been helpful but everything worked out. There are 2 rooms with bunks (single over double), 2 rooms with queens, one room with a pullout couch, and one large room with a queen, a pullout couch and an extra queen mattress. A few areas such as the upper deck are starting to show their age, but overall, we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. The guitars and the bongos did get used ;-)

Perfect home base for adventuring in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Wade's house. We rented it for four days for our wedding weekend, hosting a big group of out-of-towners keen on enjoying the mountains and the town of Canmore. We hit a few nearby climbing areas, the runners in the group had easy trail access to the Banff Legacy Trail and to Cougar Canyon, and we enjoyed great views of the three sisters and other peaks. The house also has lots of great reference material for the climbing and other activities in the area - thanks Wade! The house was perfect for spending quality time together while also being able to escape to a bedroom for some quiet time. The large common areas and an open-concept kitchen that made our post-wedding brunch lots of fun. The house is also dog friendly, a huge plus for our fur flower-girl :)

Wade was very responsive when we had questions, and we also really liked the personal feel of being in someone's actual house rather than just some cookie-cutter condo.

All in all, a great weekend, and we are already plotting a wedding reunion for next year!

Wanting. Gave the owner two opportunities to respond before posting. Heard nothing.

  • 1 of 5

Abridged version: The kitchen wasn’t very clean. Even after the housekeeper came back the interior of the cupboards and draws had visible dirt/stains, including one paper napkin that was dirty. The walls in the kitchen need a major scrub with TSP. The food encrusted frying pan was off putting. Also, I have never arrived at a rental where someone else’s left-over food remains, regardless of if the intent was to be helpful (We have arrived on many occasions to an unopened bottle of wine or flowers which are always appreciated nice touches). As to the condiments – wouldn’t touch them as other people’s food safe habits are always a mystery. The fridge could have been cleaner as could have the dishwasher on the outside

• The stove leaked gas every time it was turned on smelling up the whole area for an extended period, especially since the kitchen fan did not work nor did the dining room windows

• You need more wine glasses

• A water or juice jug would be nice

• Some of the furniture is very tired – e.g. a torn foot rest and worn table in the living room, a stained hide-a-bed in the office bedroom

• Toothpaste was on the wall of one bathroom

• One bathroom has exposed drywall.

• When we went in search of towels many were found wet in the linen cupboard with a load of wet sheets.

• Several small bugs were crawling on the premises. My physician daughter had me confirm whether or not they were ticks. I confirmed they were small black (kitchen) beetles.

• Papertowels, napkins and soap in BRs is always a nice touch. We left what we bought for the next guests. Extra garbage bags are always helpful – we couldn’t find any.

• One of the living room pictures on the website is out of date.

• The freezer in the office bedroom keeps one awake at night and the floor all around it was covered in a fine white dust. A cleaning of edges in all bedrooms etc would be good.

Worst Rental Property I ever stayed in

  • 1 of 5

I would never recommend anyone waste their money. The house was not dirty but filthy. There were moulds in the bread toaster and the tea kettle. The bathrooms were not clean. The couch in the living room was stinking .... the list goes on and on . AVOID THIS PROPERTY

Owner's Response: Are we talking about the right property? It's strange to have zero correspondence regarding cleanliness and then a month later get a one star review. If there is ever an issue with my property in any regard I'm always happy to talk about and resolve as nesesary. In this case I would have sent my cleaners back in to take care of your concerns had I known about them. Best of luck with your future bookings.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved the place! It was spacious and provided us with everything we needed. It was close enough to town and to all of the outdoor activities that we wanted to partake in. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away with a big group of friends or family.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A group of our friends stayed in Canmore on an ice climbing trip and this house was the perfect location, size, and space for a wonderful experience. Wade was extremely responsive when we had questions about the wifi, tv, and propane tanks for the grill. The kitchen, dining area and living room are open and ideal for groups who want to cook and enjoy time together but also have separate sleeping places. Loved it and would highly recommend to anyone!! Thanks Wade for sharing your home.
