The reception and party were amazing, we had a wonderful time and only got compliments after. If we had to get married one more time we would... More

We stayed at the inn as part of a group that rented the entire inn for a wedding. It was excellent and the food was fabulous. We had 2 breakfasts, a picnic lunch and the wedding meal there and we loved it all. The inn is charming and a great place for a smaller wedding. The staff were great, very... More

Very clean, although my studio room are small, but very cozy. The floral breeding set, the sofa, jacuzzi, the shampoo, lotions, welcome nuts snack...the details shows a lot of considerations. The air condition is a little noise, but I prefer not using it even at August, summer morning in Canmore is chill. The crew of this country style inn are... More

I recently attended a staff retreat located at the Bear and Bison Inn and had a fantastic time. The Inn itself is situated in a great location and we overlooked the mountains from the balcony over the course of our retreat. The view of the mountains provided great inspiration. The rooms were quaint, yet spacious, the food was amazing, and... More

This has been our second stay at a Bear and Bison, and it is for sure a favorite place to stay. All the rooms have such beautiful views of the Three Sisters and you can see Grotto mountain as well. We have stayed in 2 different rooms and they were both beautifully appointed, very clean, and very comfortable. All of... More

We were on a weekend break to Banff and Canmore. We booked our accommodation late and the bear and bison was a last minute choice. It was a great choice, the staff were very nice and accommodating, we booked white water rafting and had to leave early so we would miss breakfast so they took it off our final bill.... More
