We just spent a night at the Bear & Bison for a staff retreat. We rented out the whole place to ourselves and included a dinner and breakfast. It was definitely a nice place and the food was fantastic. The hot tub was great. It normally closes at 9pm, but we were allowed to use it past that time because... More

My husband and I spent our 33rd wedding anniversary here. The Bear & Bison is very quaint with beautiful rooms and wonderful friendly service. The Breakfast meal prepared was delicious! Nice to see families sitting around the piano playing and singing together. Our room had its own fireplace and beautiful deck to look out over the beautiful mountains. I would... More

This place has it all. The building has a log cabin feel and is the decor is very tasteful. The dining area has huge windows overlooking the mountains and town. The hot tub outside is kept a comfortable temperature and is very relaxing. The room has a fireplace and jetted tub, great for a cold winter day. The natural bath... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Bear & Bison Inn. It was very clean, quiet, the king size bed was comfortable and the staff were courteous and helpful in everyway. Marc made us a fabulous breakfast both mornings, eating in the dining room with the view of the mountains was breathtaking to say the least. Lonny made sure... More

I would highly recommend staying a the Bead and Bison! Our room was beautiful and much better than anything offered by any of the larger hotels in Canmore! The breakfast was brilliant! The B&B is only a 5 minute drive in to the centre of town too!

My wife and I visited the Canadian Rockies for the first time and stayed here our last night before flying out of Calgary. Simple drive that is 1 hour from airport. Easy check-in and our room (#7) was very well appointed and comfortable with great view of the 3 Sisters Mountains. Our four-course breakfast the following morning was terrific and... More

Super room, super service, super FOOD, excellent host. One of the best experiences in 3 weeks in Canada. It is situated outside of Cranmore town, but easy access for restaurants etc. Great countryside and mountains within an easy drive. A trip or two to Kananaskis Village, Spray Valley Provincial Park and the Bow Valley Wildland Provincial Park is highly recommended.... More

I was invited to stay at the inn for my cousin's wedding, we were there for 2 nights, and I've never been as comfortable in any other hotel. The room was very inviting, with plenty of room to spare. Everything was immaculate, and every effort was made to make sure all the guests needs were met. I thoroughly enjoyed the... More

We wanted a small wedding with just immediate family, and our research led us to A Bear and Bison Inn. We had just immediate family (total of 12 people), and the inn was more than spacious enough for everybody. The entire time we were there, we felt that Lonny and Fiona's top priority was our enjoyment and happiness, we never... More

This place looks charming outside and inviting upon entering - log purpose-built b & b, nicely decorated. Unfortunately the lack of attention to detail made for a less-than-expected visit. The bedroom was very crowded with the tub/shower in the corner of the bedroom, no reading light or room to put one beside the small couch in the room and no... More
