Overview

Photos and Description of this Canmore holiday condo

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 2 convertible sofa bed(s), Sleeps 6

GREAT views from every window, 1300 square feet on one level, a three block walk to downtown restaurants and adjacent shopping for basics make this one of the finest vacation condos in town.

We include a parks pass which will save you a good bit of $.

Our Canadian home is beautifully furnished and can comfortably handle several adults or a family with young children. Our guests have told us that this condo is simply first class. Please click on the ''comments'' button at the end of this description to see what guests have written in our guest book. A one level, open floor plan creates a very spacious and comfortable space that can handle several people without feeling crowded. It is a corner unit which has a view of 50 miles of spectacular peaks from Cascade Peak and Mount Rundell in Banff past the majestic Three Sisters in Canmore. As you can see in the photos every room has stunning views.

Guests who have stayed at our home have said ---in their reviews---the photos on the website do the views justice.

The town of Banff, 14 miles away, offers many additional shops, restaurants, museums and cultural activities. But........Canmore is the place to stay because it is not touristy.

Hiking and very simple, beautiful walks around the area are delightful.

Five downhill ski areas, including world class Lake Louise, are within twenty to fourty five minutes of the condo. After skiing coming home to underground heated parking and a rooftop hot tub, six stories above Canmore, will add to your pleasure. For your convinence you can leave your skis in a personal locked storage closet adjacent to your parking spot.

For nordic skiers, the Canmore Nordic Center, which hosted the 1988 Olympic nordic events and is five minutes away, offers tremendous nordic skiing in the winter and world class mountain biking in the summer. A major upgrade of the facility in the summer of 2005 allows it to host the prestigious World Cup every two years. There are 84 miles of groomed tracked and skate skiing trails several kilometers of which are lit for night skiing.

The Bow River, which runs through the heart of Canmore, offers world class fishing, gentle rafting/canoeing in addition to riverside trails that provide hours of peaceful walks or bike rides.

Golfers will love the five world class courses within 30 minutes. Two Robert Trent Jones courses in Kananaskis Country, Silvertip, world famous Banff Springs and Stewart Creek are some of Canada's most beautiful courses and will provide enjoyment for all skill levels.

A well equipped fitness room, 24 hr concierge service from an outstanding local property management company and Wireless high speed Internet service in the condo provide you with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The rates include a cleaning of the unit when you leave.

We've loved sharing our place with people and have done our best to ''do it right.

Please note. The condo is downtown. In the 9 years I have rented the condo to 200+ guests. Three guests have expressed concern about traffic noise. Just wanted you to know. :)

About Terry Benjamin

My wife Cathy and and I live in Longmont, Colorado,, 35 miles north of Denver. She is an attorney and I an the Executive Director of an organization that provides help to homeless families. Although we love Colorado and feel blessed to be here we fell in love with the Canadian Rockies a few years ago and were fourtunate enough to buy a spectular place in Canmore. We were the second person to buy in our building a year before construcition began so we were able to get 'the best' floor plan and views. Everyone who stays says the pictures don't do the views justice. We love sharing it with others. I love taking with people about Canmore and our property so feel free to give us a call with any questions.

Terry Benjamin purchased this condo in 2005

Why Terry Benjamin chose Canmore

Canmore is just stunning and the small town feel is much more relaxed than Banff. Things are not as expensive as Banff either. We also love the miles of trails in town that are along Policemans Creek and the Bow River. Access is just across the street from the condo.

What makes this condo unique

location, location, location!!!

Access to downtown, grocery stores and other shops. Trails right across the street make you feel like you are in wilderness. Really! And, roof top hot tub has most stunning views of valley and peaks of anyplace in downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Where to begin? Waking each morning to mountain views from every window; perfect weather; brilliant sunsets and risingmoons above the mountains; hiked Moraine and Emerald lakes; Lake Louise, Takakkaw Falls and in Johnson Canyon; walked on the glacier at Columbia Icefield; took the boast cruise on on Lake Minewanka. Unbelievable scenery--everywhere!!



Our favorite restaurants were: Chez Francois in Canmore for breakfast; Earl's in Banff for lunch; and Murietta's in Canmore for dinner.



Many thanks for sharing you condo with us. LOCATION WAS EVERYTHING!!!

Great Home Base for Visiting the Canadian Rockies

  • 5 out of 5
Canmore is a miniature Banff and only a short drive away. Town Center is an easy walk from the condo with shops and tons of eateries. The condo is very clean, well furnished and stocked with grocery stores right out the front door. There are many hiking opportunities and beautiful drives that originate in Canmore, not to mention the national parks of Banff, Yoho, Kootenay and Jasper via the spectacular Icefield Parkway. An ideal base for sampling the Rockies without having to deal with the masses that crowd Banff. Too many people in Banff? Leave it and come home to Canmore. Terry is a great host and easy to work with.

Amazing Condo in Canmore

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in Terry's condo in Canmore Alberta. Starting with booking our unit, I spoke directly with Terry, he phoned me after I made an inquiry on VRBO. Was very professional to deal with and made our booking process very smooth. Very personable and answered any questions we had. We have previously stayed in a different unit in the Canmore Crossing complex and would say this unit was 100% times better. The views are breathtaking. The condo is huge, clean, and well equiped. There is everything you would need in the kitchen from baking sheets, (me and my kids made chocolate chip cookies one day), and a slowcooker to have a nice warm meal ready after spending the day out biking. Lots of towels, soap, dishwasher soap, laundry soap, shampoo, a couple of umbrellas, coolers, garabage bags, too much to mention all here....everything you would need for your stay away from home. We were welcomed with beautiful flowers, a welcome sign with our families name on it, and a basket filled with wine and goodies and juice boxes in the fridge for the kids. Nothing was missed here. You are right by Sobeys and Save on Foods, a 5 min walk downtown, and seconds away from the bike trails. I actually forgot a few items in a bottom drawer and they were returned to me very quickly via mail. Will be returning very soon, thank you so much Terry and Sharon for making our family trip to Canmore a memorable one!

Lovely stay

  • 5 out of 5
Extremely spacious and convenient, with all the comforts of home. My family of five stayed here for a week and were very content. The dishwasher malfunctioned during our week, and after one quick phone call it was immediately taken care of so we weren't inconvenienced at all. Loved having the grocery store right next door, but it did cause a lot of loud noises at night with trucks going in and out of the parking lot. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone.

The property was as described.

  • 5 out of 5
When we arrived there was a letter telling us about a couple small problems we would have. A number was left that we could call if it bothered us and get a reduction in the rate. They were so small that it didn't effect our stay. The owners had given us ideas of what we could do during our stay.Besides going to the parks, we enjoyed the trails around Canmore. They are ideal for a walk after dinner.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and the place worked well for you. We want everything to be in A+ shape for everyone.........even the little things. Many trails around our place in Canmore.......particularly Policeman's Creek right across the street ----have a true wilderness feel to them.

Map

Map

The beautiful Bow River flows through the heart of town and is a five minute walk away. Trails along Policeman's Creek, which is one block from the condo, provides a wilderness walk right in town. We live and hike in Colorado but are simply astounded by the beauty of these in-town trails as well at the majesty of the mountains surrounding Canmore. People who I speak to on the phone about renting our place wonder why we would have a second home in the Canadian Rockies. I respond by saying 'it simply is that beautiful in Canmore.'

In addition to the stunning scenery Canmore has a wonderful variety of unique locally owned restaurants and shops. No mall with the stores or eateries you seem to see everywhere these days. Although the restaurants are great we find ourselves cooking in the very well equipped kitchen most nights. A new Safeway and an upscale Soby's market are next door. If you do want to eat out the eateries are a three block walk away.

Other Activities: spelunking, shopping, horseback riding, rafting, rock climbing
