We chose Canmore for the start of our two week tour of Banff and Jasper National Parks and used trip advisor to aid our decision for the first stopover. We were a little surprised at first as the photos give the impression of a rural location, but it is on the edge of town. To be honest that was not... More

We recently attended the wedding of our son and his beautiful wife at the Bear and bison Inn in Canmore,Alberta. The venue was amazing, from the beautiful grounds that served as the background for the ceremony to the declicious food, to the professional, friendly staff. The rooms were spacious. The decorating was lovely. My nephew who attended the wedding stated... More

We were married at the Bear and Bison Inn on June 21. From the moment we arrived they were amazing hosts. My friends and family left raving the food! It was nice to have the privacy of the whole inn. Our bartender was great too. Can't wait for an anniversary to come back.

My husband and I had a great stay June 11th-13th. We booked Travelers Room 5 for the end of our vacation and it exceeded all my expectations. This stay was definitely the highlight of our trip! The four poster king-sized bed was very comfortable and the room amenities included an iron, hair dryer, kettle, hot chocolate, coffee, and French press.... More

We stayed at the Inn with friends and family for our son's wedding. The experience was phenomenal. Beautiful location, outstanding food (Lonny is a superb chef!), and remarkable service that blew us away! The entire staff were friendly and bent over backwards to make the wedding events function perfectly. Charlotte and Marc are treasures. Lonny and his team gave us... More

We stayed at A Bear and Bison for our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. By the time we checked out, we were already imagining renting out the full inn to bring back our friends and family. Marc went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect. He helped resolve a booking issue via Priceline (I've now... More

After a long research process, I finally found a perfect second honeymoon mountain retreat in this Inn. Starting with the prompt reply to a query email to the owner Fiona it was a decision that I knew I found just the right place! It had everything I wanted going for it and it did not disappoint! From the second we... More

We chose to entrust our wedding in early January 2014 to Lonny and Fiona at A Bear and Bison. We were more than satisfied and happy to recommend them to anyone planning a wedding. We spent our honeymoon at a large resort elsewhere in the Rockies and though also a great experience, the service could not be compared. What you... More

We had the experience of a lifetime at A Bear & Bison. We held our wedding there in January, 2014 and it was truly magical. During the planning stages, Lonny always time to help me with planning the event and choices of service providers. We had very little involvement with Fiona until the day of the wedding. Wow, what a... More
