What an amazing 2 weeks in Canmore! It was time to show our kids this part of our great country and this house was ideal - it is spacious, clean and the location couldn't have been more perfect for our family of 4 - we could walk everywhere, including the grocery store when we needed a light stock up. Canmore has some fantastic shopping and you can tell the quality businesses moving in know this is the "new" hot spot to be in the Canadian Rockies! From chocolate to soap & unique restaurants to flannel pajamas, we left a few $$$ in town. The trail network, accessed from several points in town, made for lovely evening walks. We enjoyed the view from their balcony every morning & evening. Canmore has it all without the insane crowds and tourists that make their way to Banff. But, we were only minutes to the gates of Banff National Park and made sure we enjoyed all it had to offer. Our family enjoyed hikes to Lake Agnes Teahouse (Lake Louise), Sunshine Meadows, Lake Moraine, Ha Ling (Canmore), Grotto & Johnston Canyons (make sure you go all the way to the ink pots!) and even managed an overnighter up in Jasper because we were determined to drive the famous Columbia Icefields Parkway and see the Athabasca Glacier. The Jasper Tramway is worth facing the dizzying heights - the top of Whistlers Mountain (AB, not BC...) was incredible. There is no shortage of things to do and see. We loved getting an early start each day to avoid the expected summer crowds and it was worth it! We had the exchange secured a year in advance and Michelle was responsive and we stayed connected as needed. Upon our return home, we found our house was spotless and very well looked after. Highly recommend this great home & location in the Canadian Rockies!
