About this listing
This penthouse sleeps up to 7 persons.

Enjoy mountain/town views from WALLS OF GLASS, artistic, custom artisan-crafted decor, and FREE WIFI. Plus shared rooftop hot-tub with panoramic views!
This is a NO SMOKING, NO PETS property.
Birch Haven is a 1000 sq ft, 2 BR, 2 bathroom condominium (note: one of the bathrooms is conventional, and the other one is open-style). The property is designed to sleep 4-6 persons. However, larger groups have used a spare twin mattress (on floor) to sleep a 7th person. Additionally, one infant can sleep in the portable playpen (if applicable, please be sure to request playpen and dining chair at time of booking).
Bedding/bath configuration is as follows:
Main level bedroom: One queen barnwood bed (+ one spare single mattress on floor). There is a separate conventional full bathroom next door (American-style bathtub with wall-mounted shower).
Loft level bedroom and bathroom (note: this is open to living room below): One queen log canopy bed. Full bath in bedroom is open and designed without walls (European-style soaking tub with handheld tub-mounted shower)
Living room: One queen sleeper sofabed, with optional feather topper for extra comfort. There is also a portable playpen/crib for infants/toddlers.
Treat yourself to panoramic views from WALL OF GLASS in the living room's soaring 23-foot vault. Amazingly, every piece of furniture was designed and commissioned for this stunning condo. Artists from various regions of Canada hand-crafted each piece and came in to install these works of art.
Aesthetics and comfort are given equal emphasis at this artistic condo loft, furnished with antique barnwood & log furnishings designed personally by the artist-owner.
Just 2 blocks from Main Street, our downtown location means that grocery stores, restaurants, art galleries, trendy cafes are all at your doorstep!
The loft features 23-foot vaulted ceilings, soaring 8-foot walls of glass flanking a cozy log/river stone fireplace & hi-speed wireless internet. Enjoy stunning views whether you are lounging in bed, relaxing on the leather sofa, working out in the gym or soaking in the rooftop hot tub!
Every piece of antique barnwood and log furnishing is exquisite and crafted by artisans, earning us a reputation as the area's most sought-after loft for honeymooners, families, and those looking for a vacation experience that's a cut above the rest!

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT:
Birch Haven offers a number of thoughtful bonuses, including FREE WIFI (limited time offer)!
You will find even more touches that differentiate Birch Haven from any other vacation rental...
Mood lighting at the flick of a switch. Guidebooks and brochures to help you make the most of your visit. A barnwood armoire brimming with toys, board games, and novels. Dishwasher in gourmet kitchen. Even cookbooks to inspire the Iron Chef in you!
At Birch Haven, you can pamper yourself with our feather-bed topper for plush bedding comfort. Or remove the topper, if you prefer a firmer mattress. We even offer a 'library' of pillows to accommodate your preferences.
Upon request, we can also offer hard-to-find amenities that make a real difference to parents: a portable playpen/crib, plus a dining high chair for your little one!
You are renting the entire apartment so you will have access to everything in the apartment. You will share the building's amenities like the gym and rooftop hot-tub featuring panoramic 360 degree views of the peaks encircling our building! We also offer wifi as a courtesy to our guests.
DISCLAIMERS: Please be aware due to mountain conditions, we cannot guarantee 24/7 wifi as provider outages that are beyond our control sometimes can occur. The hot-tubs are shared amenities and are subject to periodic closure for cleaning/maintenance. There are 3 hot-tubs in the building complex (2 rooftop and 1 indoor), so there is usually at least one that is open. However, we cannot guarantee availability as the cleaning/maintenance schedule is beyond our control.
Interaction with guests
We provide comprehensive information ahead of time to ensure that your checkin/checkout and entire stay is smooth! Please note that guests will be asked to sign an owner's agreement.
Other things to note
WHEN COMPARISON SHOPPING, BE SURE TO CONSIDER THIS: Birch Haven is LEGALLY ZONED for short-term tourist rentals. Unfortunately, this is not the case for the vast majority of properties in Canmore. Don't risk losing your payments or disrupting your vacation due to crackdowns on illegally-operated properties.
Sorry, due to allergy concerns, smoking and pets are not allowed. For sanitation reasons, we also ask for guests to kindly remove the trash and run the dishwasher before they check out. We, and future guests, thank you for helping us to maintain a clean, healthy environment for all!

Travel is somewhat of an obsession with us, and having traveled extensively in over 50 countries, we can quite safely say that the Canadian Rockies (and especially Banff National Park) still holds up as one of our favorite spots in the world.
We fell head over heels in love with this awe-inspiring location during a vacation here and had hardly scratched the surface of available activities in those 2 weeks. When we realized that it would take a lifetime to enjoy the gifts of the area, we quickly decided that we wanted to own a slice of heaven... to have a special place to rejuvenate our minds, reassess our priorities and recalibrate our lives.
We first purchased one penthouse loft, loved it so much that we purchased another loft! Hence, we now have TWO SIDE-BY-SIDE lofts that we are proud to share with you. these 2 lofts can be rented separetely, or together (for large groups).
Come experience the magic of the Canadian Rockies!
