The Space

Beautiful Bachelor walkout to the tranquility of the forest! Hardwood floors, dishwasher, soaker tub. Practically on the hiking and mountain bike trails. This is a fully self contained suite, on the ground floor of my home. Your residence has a full private kitchen, livingroom, bathroom, soaker tub, outdoor seating area and private entrance. While you are here, the full forested yard is yours to enjoy. I live in the top 2 floors of the house so am available if you would like any first hand local knowledge or if privacy is what you desire, you will hardly see me at all. ;-)

Just 100km (62miles) from Calgary. Canmore is a beautiful community situated just outside the Banff National Park gates and beside Kananaskis Provincial Park (Kananaskis was where the film Broke Back Mountain was filmed.) 20 km bike ride along either mountain bike trails or the new paved bike path will bring you to the famous tourist town of Banff which is well renown for it's Arts program.

Hiking, Rockclimbing, and mountain biking are what the locals love to do around here in the summer. We have a small but picturesque quarry lake to cool off in should the temperatures soar.

If you love to mountain bike Canmore (email hidden). Being that it is outside of park gates XC mountain biking is not limited as it is within the parks. There are great Downhill trails in nearby Kananaskis Country.

Canmore has 3 Golf Courses. World class Silvertip and Stewart Creek as well as our own Canmore Golf Club.

You are smack dab in the mountains at an elevation of 4,500 feel. Great climbing, scrambling and hiking routes are everywhere around you.

Winter In Canmore!

If you decide to visit in the winter, XC skiing and iceclimbing are the main outdoor activites in Canmore. The world class Canmore Nordic Centre is an destination for Cross country ski enthusiasts. We host international events so the runs are always track set and groomed for skate skiing. We even have a night loop open and snow making should the snow gods be stingy that year.

If Downhill is more your passion, just outiside of this picturesque town, you have a choice of 5 different local ski resorts for Downhill skiing and snowboarding . The Canadian Rockies is famous for super dry powder and for Backcountry enthusiasts, ski touring is abundant as Canmore is surrounded on all sides by parks.

Winter or summer, Come check out the beautiful Canadian Rockies!

  • Laurie (email hidden) and she has a lovely little place in Canmore. The apartment is a good value and had everything we need, including a nice bathroom with heated floors! Evenings were a bit cold, but the apartment had a small heater and plenty of blankets. Only one minor complaint- the place could use some curtains given the long daylight hours.

    June 2014
  • Clean. Good value for money..relatively private and comfortable. Probably would be handy to have curtains. Can walk to pub, cafe and minimal grocery but otherwise quite a long walk to town centre for more (website hidden) Laurie friendly and helpful.

    June 2014
  • Laurie was an excellent host, the suite is beautiful and close to both downtown Canmore and Banff, we will be recommending this suite to all of our friends staying in the area :)

    May 2014
  • The little self contained apartment was lovely :) It had everything we needed, and was very charming. We were glad we based ourselves in Canmore for a few days, there's loads to do nearby, and Laurie was kind enough to lend us her parks pass to facilitate! All in all, very positive experience, Laurie and her daughter were very welcoming and friendly.

    May 2014
  • We enjoyed our three-weeks stay with Laurie very much, could even see coyotes outside the garden and sqirrels all over. The suite is very comfortable and we felt almost like home!

    April 2014
  • Inexpensive, quiet and well located, 5 min from downtown Canmore. Laurie wasn't there but her daughter Noelle made sure we were comfortable.

    April 2014
  • A cosy place that we enjoyed over our Xmas break. Very good value for money in a great location. Perhaps bring slippers in Winter - we forgot ours!

    December 2013
  • Fantastic place in the mountains
    Laurie is a special person who will make your stay very comfortable.

    November 2013
  • Had a lovely stay at Laurie's comfortable and well set out apartment. Loved the view out into the woods. Nice to stay somewhere quiet with a quick drive to Camore and Banff. Thanks for the great spot to stop.
