Wonderful staff, amazing hospitality, and a perfect venue for our wedding. The Paintbox team was thoughtful and helpful throughout the planning process and during our big event. We really couldn't have asked for more. The lodge is unique, spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts are hearty and delicious. The suites and rooms are spotless, well equipped and versatile for large groups.... More

We found this property to be a little hidden treasure in the Rockies. It was very quaint and gave a definite feel of being "home". The staff were so friendly and accommodating, and the healthy and hearty breakfasts were amazing. Our room was the smallest on the property (a studio) but it was clean, comfortable and had amazing Rocky Mountain... More

The Paintbox Lodge is everything it claims to be and more! During our 2 night stay we spent one night in the Studio room and one night in the Cabin Suite, and both are just as pictured on the website. Our original reservation needed to be changed due to a death in the family and both Gini and Kate were... More

Our pleasure to accommodate our guests and the uncontrollable curve balls life throws their way. Maybe complimentary Rocky Mountain Soap Company bath balls in the rooms might be a nice addition? More

I loved the convenience of being right in the heart of Canmore coupled with a very rustic "getaway" kind of feeling. The staff were warm and welcoming and truly added to the experience. Fresh-squeeze orange juice, homemade granola and fresh cappuccinos are the little extras that made our stay feel like great value. The artists loft kept us warm and... More

It is true that we have the best location in Canmore and a simple but tasty breakfast. And guests love our Miele Coffee Bar. Come back when the snow melts and enjoy our complimentary town bikes. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. More

We heard about the Paintbox Lodge by word-of -mouth. We drove to Canmore straight from the ski slopes at Lake Loiuse. We were tired and cold. From the moment we stepped in the door, we knew we'd found an extraordinary place. We were greeted by Gini, a lovely woman who showed us to our room and told us everything we... More

The Paintbox Lodge has all the perks of a hotel with the community feel of a bed and breakfast. We had a great stay! We also reccomend doing a cooking class during your stay. The food was delicious and the class was very informative and entertaining.

Any reviews we heard or read were accurate. Our stay was wonderful in every way from cleanliness to service to friendliness and to a wonderful breakfast, we were fully satisfied. The French Bistro cooking class was awesome and the food delicious.

Totally and completely wonderful - the personable staff, the accommodation, the location, the excellent breakfasts and the great cooking class. It was bitterly cold outside but we were toasty inside and had a wonderful winter holiday. Thank you to all involved for creating a unique experience.

Comfortable, homey and a slice of mountain life, the Paintbox delivers an experience that is simply awesome. Awesome appointed rooms, awesome breakfast (when we arrived they were making homemade granola and the whole place smelled like cinnamon) and an awesome staff who are uber educated and excited about all the awesome adventures that await right out the front door.
