Photos and Description of this Alberta holiday condo

25% off of bookings of 4+ nights thru Feb

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 $. Basic cleaning allowance of 3.5 hours is included in price which is sufficient if you help just a little before you leave.

Please note that prices are in US$.

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 allowance of 3.5 hours 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 Alberta

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!!!

A superb property in all respects

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our family vacation from NZ for 10 days of spring skiing with 2 teenage boys .

Everything about the property was as mentioned in the description and communication from Terry ,the owner.

The property was extremely clean upon our arrival after a long flight , and the beds , particularly in the lounge were extremely comfortable, and the range of provisions in the kitchen was quite a pleasant surprise !

All local amenities are within easy walking distance , and it is a delightful drive to Banff and the ski resorts.

We would certainly come back here again without hesitation.

Thank you Terry for the opportunity .

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was a perfect location, close to grocery stores and town. It was lovely and light with fabulous views so that made it very comfortable. The kitchen was very well equipped so we had everything we needed. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

Thank you too for all the helpful local information.

Great Location. Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This Canmore condo is spacious, clean and has lots of great amenities. Most of all, the location is perfect. It is close to stores, restaurants and a five minute walk to the town center. Great for one or two couples. My wife and I really enjoyed our visit and we would love to return again and stay here.

AMAZING and relaxing place to stay in Canmore!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot write enough about how great staying at Terry's place in Canmore was! He was prompt with communicating right from the beginning and things just got better when we arrived! I've stayed at a lot of VRBOs but the attention to detail in making our stay pleasant was beyond exceptional here. They had a welcome sign for us and a welcome basket with treats and a bottle of wine. The location is perfect...easy to walk to the downtown, groceries, coffee shops, etc. The rooftop hot-tub is incredible and all the views are to die for. The beds for extremely comfortable, the fireplace cozy, the kitchen well equipped, and the right size. I will definitely come here again and stay at Terry's place and I recommend everyone else to as well! Also, stay in Canmore, not Banff town. Canmore is more quaint and not as touristy and I felt like had more charm.

I look forward to your next stay. And, thanks for leaving a tip for the housekeeper.

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
