Overview

About the property

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

Totally awesome views from every window, very spacious,1300 square feet on one level, a three block walk to downtown restaurants. Adjacent shopping for basics make this one of the finest vacation condos in town. Just look at reviews and pictures........you'll see what this condo offers.

We include a parks pass which will save you a good bit of $. Basic cleaning allowance of 3.5 hours is included for stays of 4+ days 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 a retired attorney and I retired after 33 years as the Executive Director of an organization that provides help to low income and 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 nice and comfortable condo well located!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this place and skiing in the Spring with decent temperatures.

The condo has all the amenities and comfort we expected... Clean, spacious, well equipped and located to convenient stores and with a fast access to the highway.

Logistically ideal, quiet with beautiful views of the mountains for a perfect diner or breakfast!

Thanks

Nice view but dirty condo

  • 2 of 5

We found the view amazing and the location convenient but found the condo to be dirty in many areas . There was hair in the towels and bed . Dirty tooth brush holder and floor near the tub in the bathroom. There was a kitkat wrapper in the pull out couch and the beds were uncomfortable. There was an inadequate number of glasses for the people in the condo and to top it off the BBQ was filthy.

Owner's Response: OMG ! I have rented to hundreds of guests over 10 years and this is the FIRST time I have received this kind of feedback. I am stunned and will make sure this is the last time this happens. As hard as this is to hear I appreciate your letting me know so I can address it with the person who takes care of the place. I am glad you enjoyed the views and location. So sorry.

Everything you need in a very convenient spot

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need to spend a good time. We were 4 and there was a lot of room for everyone. Location is great, 30 min to Sunshine and 1hr to Lake Louise. Supermarket across the street, restaurants nearby. We really enjoyed our stay.

VIEW VIEW VIEW!

  • 5 of 5

The condo exceeded our expectations. It was very comfortable and had all the amenities. The owner responded quickly to our questions. The information on Canmore with local and farther a field walks/hikes provided by Terry was most useful. Thank you Terry for the use of your condo making our "sister" time so special.

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
