The rooms were spacious and clean the bed cozy and comfortable. The breakfast was abundant and delicious. The quiche was lite and fluffy, fresh sour dough bread hot and tangy, muffins... More

We attended a cooking class as a corporate event. The group really enjoyed the afternoon; Chef George and Kate made us feel at home, they were so knowledgeable and friendly. Our food was AMAZING!!! We were all extremely satisfied with the experience. We would do it again. A comment that was made by a few of the group members: it... More

The Paintbox Lodge was everything we hoped for and more! We stayed in the Cabin Suite. The room is spacious, the bed very comfortable and it opens to a garden. After a close walk to town or a hike in the mountains, it was wonderful to come back to the comfort of the lodge. The staff was very friendly and... More

Beautiful quaint lodge that includes a homemade healthy breakfast & bikes. The owners and employees made us feel at home and the location was fantastic. Located in the heart of Canmore, we could bike to a trail, spend a couple of hours hiking, then walk into town for dinner. Loved every moment and would definitely stay there again.

It's always a friendly atmosphere whether you are checking in or sitting eating your breakfast. The classes are wonderful! The morning breakfast is fresh and also tastes amazing. Our suite was rustic, comfortable and lovely... More

Lovely friendly stay in a wonderful suite and love the environmentally conscious delivery. It was top quality and a great start to our trip in Western Canada. The home baked bread and muffins for breakfast were special.

Glad you loved our simple breakfast. One of our cooking classes is a sourdough bread baking class with Aviv from the Sidewalk Citizen Bakery. We bake homemade sourdough for our guests and we think it is the best bread in town! More

Canmore is a little town outside Banff and a wonderful place to stay if you want the mountains but not the people. Paintbox Lodge sits in the heart of Canmore with all the town's amenities well within walking distance. The rooms are large, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Comfortable beds, modern bathrooms and super staff. Breakfast was amazing and I loved... More

I looked for weeks to find a quaint place to stay in Canmore/Banff area that was not too expensive & not a chain. The most important factor for us was that we didn't want to feel like a number or that our only personal space was our room.Thanks to a lengthily search on TripAdvisor I booked Paintbox Lodge.
