I have to admit that our stay at this property was over 10 years ago, but it was such an incredible stay I decided while I was writing some other reviews I had to write one for Bear and Bison. The rooms and breakfast were amazing, but what made it really special was the enthusiasm of the owner (and chef!)... More

We ordered the breakfast to our room every morning (no additional fee!) and ate it either on our nice little balcony or just on the bed - and the food was really really good! the staff was very welcoming and thoughtful and did everything to make our stay...

The rooms were lovely and intimate and the view from the hot tub is beautiful. The private balconies are lovely and the girls are very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay for a couple of nights in Canmore!

Thank you for your lovely comments. Our outdoor hot tub does have a great view of the Three Sisters Mountain range and enjoying a couple of glasses of wine on your private patio is a great way to finish off the evening. We are happy to hear what a great little get away you had Leah Jefferson More

There are so many good things to say about the Bear and Bison. Amazing food, service, staff. Beautiful venue and very well decorated. We had the most perfect wedding here for the 4th of July. All of our guests had a fantastic time, the space was very adequate for everyone to dance, mingle and eat. I highly recommend the Bear... More

May 24/25th. What can we say that hasn't been said. We booked from the UK for our first 2 nights in Canada on the ratings supplied by tripadvisor, we weren't disappointed, we were welcomed by a lovely young lady, given room 4 ground floor. Breakfasts were at a reasonable time, and the most enjoyable. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Will... More

I just recently stayed at the Bear and Bison Country Inn on June 1,2015. I picked the elopement package because I wasn't wanting a lot of guests for the wedding. They provided options for times, dates, dinner reservation, flowers, ceremony and wine with desserts. I was able to pick everything and they were extremely flexible. I have never been to... More

The staff are so accommodating! Their attention to detail and their ability to respond to the needs of our group, without us having to say a single word, was phenomenal! Marc and Lonny put forth a concentrated effort to ensure that our expectations were exceeded. Great food, great facility, fantastic service! We will be back!
