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.'

PETS: We are pet friendly because we enjoy taking our rat terrier, 'Rat', with us when we travel. We do require a $50 dollar 'basic' pet fee because extra cleaning is required.

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!!!

Beautiful home, very comfortable & great location

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our weekend get away, waking up to the mountain views was awesome! The condo is in a great location, walking distance to shops, restaurants and hiking trails. Property owner was very quick to respond to questions and we enjoyed the comfortable home. Kitchen was fully stocked and lots of extra bedding and towels in the closet. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the unit at Canmore Crossing. The photos do not do the unit justice. It is spacious, very clean and well decorated with excellent quality furnishings. The extras of condiments, toiletries, cleaning products etc reduce the need to buy.

The unit is on a corner and on a junction but we were not affected by noise, except the bins being emptied some mornings, although this was into a problem

There are 2 supermarkets but a couple of minutes walk, we liked Shop and Save but Safeway also good

The views are amazing and Canmore is a lovely little town and only a few minutes walk away. We spent much of our time travelling into the national park for skiing and walking. We had a couple of highlights. We went to Lake Louise on Christmas Eve and this was magical wonderland. We also walked Johnson Canyon and this was like Narnia!!

We spent NYE's in Banff and the fireworks were fantastic , try the Elk and Oarsman if you are in town

Terry was helpful throughout and responded to emails promptly. I would recommend the unit to anyone looking for a comfortable base in the area.

We are returning the the area in May and would stay again but the unit is sadly already booked!!

thank you

Lovely condo with exceptional mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at your condo in August. When we arrived in the evening it was grey and rainy. What a fabulous surprise to awaken to the stunning mountain view and sunshine the next morning! The condo was very clean, well stocked, and included an awesome welcome package. Loved access to walking paths, downtown, nearby grocery store and restaurants. We did notice some traffic noise when windows were open or patio door as the condo is near a stop light. Both couples in our traveling group live on secluded acreage, so we may be more sensitive than others to traffic. We would recommend this Canmore location to others traveling in Alberta. Easy access to Lake Louise, Banff, and other hiking locations.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the condo and Canmore. And, the views are really the best. Thanks for the 5 star review. As noted in the vrbo property description the property is in the downtown area which provides wonderful access to many shops, restaurants, walking trails, etc. So, it is not the quiet country setting but almost everyone who has stayed over many years has been happy with the trade off.

Great views, spacious, comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this condo. The views from the many condo windows were beautiful. The kitchen was very well stocked, with everything you need to cook anything. Great location for walking everywhere, from the grocery store, restaurants, or local trails. The welcome package was a very nice touch with the treats and a bottle of wine.

Map

Car: recommended

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
