About the property

Just 25km (15 miles) from Banff, your Canmore home offers you easy access to explore both mountain hotspots. One of the best aspects of the this condo, is the outdoor swimming pool, open year-round. You'll love the post-card views! Three outdoor hot-tubs and an exercise room round out this perfect mountain getaway.

About Carrie

I truly love mountain life. Growing up on a cattle ranch, it was tough to find elevation to climb up or ski down. I moved west a few years ago, and have found much joy and contentment through having mountain adventures be an accessible part of my life. I hope you'll come and experience the splendour Canmore offers. Please feel free to drop me a note with any questions you may have.

Carrie purchased this condo in 2014

Why Carrie chose Alberta

I just love Canmore! Looking up and seeing the peaks never gets old. Whether you're strolling down mainstreet or on a wilderness trek... Canmore offers it all. It's a fantastic place to come for fun, solitude, connection and rejeuvenation.

What makes this condo unique

This 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo offers you a perfect homebase to launch from. Being close to downtown, you can take a 2-minute drive, or a 20-minute picturesque walk along the Spring Creek pathway. The outdoor, heated pool and hot tubs are open year round. With the mountain vistas, a soak in the waters is tough to beat. I've taken great care to provide you with creature comforts. The upgraded kitchen will bring out your inner chef, and inspire the Martha Stewart in you after a day in the lofty heights!

Great place, had the essentials!

  • 4 of 5

Only reason I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because the deadbolt didn't lock. The hotel-style door did automatically, but the deadbolt was broken, which was not ideal for 2 women staying the weekend.

Owner's Response: Hi, Thanks so much for this feedback. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. My apologies for the disconfort you may have felt without a double lock system. I hadn't realized it was broken... I'll send a handyman in tomorrow and be sure it gets attended to! Thanks again for letting me know. Cheers.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

This place is wonderful! The location is close to town (a short drive - but probably could walk), convenient to 2 big grocery stores, not to mention a beautiful spacious floorplan with all the amenities you could want. We were thrilled to find bear spray in the closet to carry with us on our hikes (luckily didn't need to use it, but nice to have!) Very nice updated kitchen and bathrooms. The loft area had a bed, TV and full bathroom - perfect for my teenage son. The location is such that when you drive into the underground garage, the staircase right by the entrance is right by your condo entrance - very conveniently located if you don't mind stairs. My only complaint is that there is no air conditioning (which seems to be very typical in that area). There are 2 tall floor fans provided, so we were able to draw the cool evening air into the condo at night. It took us awhile to figure out how to best circulate the air to get it to cool down quickly, as it got pretty hot in there during the day. Once we did, it was fine. Other than that, we were thrilled staying there! We preferred staying in Canmore, as it had more of a local flavor/less touristy, but was still close to Banff. Carrie was very pleasant and responsive to all our inquiries, both before our stay and while we were there. We hope for a return visit!

OK - Not Great

  • 3 of 5

I travel a lot -- and have stayed in everything from 5 star hotels to couch-surfing - so I am not a snob about the kind of place I stay except I do require it to be clean. This property in Canmore is definitely clean -- no problem there -- but it didn't have any soul. It felt like the owner only purchased this place to rent out but hasn't taken the time to understand some of the nuances of what travelers need. Except for a single email when you book this unit and your reservation has accepted, there is literally no interaction with this property owner.

Most places have some level of information about the area in the unit but nothing like that here. I did leave a number of brochures and maps in the unit for others to see - but for all I know, the cleaning lady has ditched them. Yes, there is a kiosk of brochures by the front desk where you check in to collect your keys and receive a general information sheet -- but there's nothing warm or inviting about this place -- you are literally just renting a couple of rooms. I've been in hotel rooms that make you feel more welcome and provide you with more information about the area you're visiting than this place did.

Of particular note -- make sure you bring a robe or don't plan on walking around nude in the apartment -- your neighbors can see in from every direction -- and can hear everything going on within 50' of the unit (and beyond)...especially if you have windows open like we did. There is absolutely NO PRIVACY in this unit.

There are towels provided -- but there's not a single hook to hang a wet towel on...in fact, there is NOTHING to hang a wet towel on except for the shower rod. This is one detail that clearly indicates the owner never has lived in this unit (or intended to).

I know it may seem like I'm picking this place apart for minor things -- but as everyone knows -- the devil is in the details. And when people are parting with their hard earned money to get a 'home away from home' -- that's what you expect -- a home away from home.

One great feature about this unit is it's location. You're not far from anything and the main road (Trans Canada Highway) is just a couple minutes away. And another great feature is that you have an indoor parking space.

Canmore is a lovely town -- I would definitely visit here again. But when I do, I'll probably look for a place to stay that feels more homey and affords more privacy than this.

Beautiful condo but could definitely use air conditioning.

  • 4 of 5

Comfy beds and very clean except for a couple of dribbles down the wall which I wiped because I'm just anal like that...lol. Air conditioning would be lovely but there was fans which helped alot. Deadbolt doesn't work though you still have the key card lock. Everything we needed dish wise and loved having the washer/dryer for doing up some dirty towels and such. Very enjoyable stay!

Nice Condo, but needs a little TLC

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful condo great location just minutes walk to downtown. But main toilet didn't flush properly, not all tv's worked and found the loft very hot.

Other than those few problems everything was as advertised. The one hot tub was so close and convenient. The complex had three hot tubs and one heated pool.

We really enjoyed our stay, don't know what else there is to say.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying in our condo. I'm so sorry about the toilet not flushing properly (!). I really appreciate you letting me know... I called the plumber today and it will be fixed tomorrow. Sorry to hear about the hassle with the TV too... it was an issue once before and I thought between myself and the SHAW guy, we had it sorted out. Two guests having trouble is 2 too many! I'll be ordering a new television tonight. I hope these hassles didn't deter your pleasure of the grandeur of the mountains. Thanks again for your reservation, and your honest feedback.
