Beautiful Bachelor forest retreat!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Ridge Rd, Canmore, AB T1W 1G5, Canada

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 is a destination town. 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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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.

    October 2013
  • We had an exceptional time considering we went for hiking and used Laurie's house mostly for a few meals and sleeping. She has a cute and cozy set up and we felt most welcomed.
    It was so nice to be backed out onto the mountain, so peaceful. Laurie was so kind to swap dates as I made a mistake in booking, so on short notice she went out of her way to accomidate for us even though she was having company. Things all worked out nicely and we will probably look her up again in the near future when we travel to Banff in the cold as we generally camp, but a warm place that you can cook in can't be beat in autumn.

    October 2013
  • We had a great stay at this cozy bachelor unit. It was clean, comfortable, and very accessible to Banff and surrounding areas. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking our own meals we even got to do laundry there so it makes for a good longer term stay. Laurie was a gracious host and we would definitely stay there again!

    October 2013
  • Great stay in Canmore. Laurie was so flexible and accommodating and friendly. The one room apartment was spotless and immaculate, with a well-equipped kitchen which really came in handy. The shower was the BEST, ever. It was extremely quiet and private & Canmore turned out to be an excellent place to base our Rockies trip. Lots of great restaurants, a fantastic brew pub, and some excellent hikes. Laurie gave us a suggestion for a side trip to Jasper that turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip. We were really happy with our stay. Thanks, Laurie!

  • See our other review. We stayed at Laurie's wonderful apartment for two days, took a brief trip, and then came back for five more days. Laurie was helpful, kind, and accommodating throughout. The studio was a lovely retreat!

    September 2013
  • We had a very nice stay with Laurie. She was accommodating and responsive. The place was very clean and cozy. Would return.

    September 2013
  • We had a lovely time at Laurie's accomodation.
    We had access to a hob and small grill for cooking, which was nice on the nights that we felt like staying in.
    It was lovely to sit out in the garden for our dinners and drinks. We even had a cute rabbit come and join us most evenings!
    The private entrance was a bonus.
    Laurie respected our privacy but was available if we needed anything.
    She kindly gave us a loan of her Parks access pass, which was a huge saving and this was very much used.
    Town was easily accessed by car but quite a walk if you were aiming on walking in to the centre.
    Laurie kindly looked for a lost item of mine after we left and messaged me to let me know she had even searched the recycling bins for me (unfortunately it wasn't found but I appreciated the effort).
    This accomodation was a great location for discovering the Rockies :)
