My daughter was married here on Feb 10, 2008. My husband and I arrived on Feb. 7. We were met by "Mel" who is a wonderful hostess. She made us most welcome in a friendly and thoroughly professional manner. I always think that first impressions are so important, and Mel is worth her weight in gold for this ! We... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon nearly five years ago and had a fantastic time. When we arrived the owners had, had an emergency and were not able to greet us, they left us a selection of keys and allowed us to peruse the avaiable rooms and choose the one we liked best. The bed was very... More

My wife and I arrived at this excellent Inn on 25th August for a 4 night stay on our two week vacation to Canada from Doncaster in Yorkshire England to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Although we arrived 3 hours prior to normal booking in time we were advised by Danielle that the room was ready and given the keys.... More

My wife and I planned our Canadian Adventure for months and the Bear and Bison Inn was a top priority on our list of places to stay. We were glad that they were willing to work with our travel agent and everything we had expected was delivered. Our room had a majestic mountain view, there were informal gatherings in the... More

My business takes me all over Alberta. I can say, without a doubt, that this is the FINEST place by far , that I have stayed at in the entire province. If not for the warm, welcoming ambience of the Bear and Bison Inn, I would choose to stay in Calgary, 100 km to the east. Lonny and his fantastic... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bear and Bison for three nights, at the end of July. The inn is lovely and our room was perfect. Breakfast at a bed and breakfast is always a delight, but the morning selections at the Bear and Bison were outstanding. The picnic lunches were also delicious and made it so much easier... More

After reading about the Bear & Bison on Trip Advisor, my husband and I were very excited about ending our Rockies vacation there - We spent 3 nights there, and I have to say it was not what we expected. First off, Canmore is a lovely town with great restaurants - and the Bear & Bison is in the town... More

We were married at the Bear & Bison earlier this month and I must say that they totally exceeded our expectations, which were fairly high to begin with from a previous stay at the Inn... Everything was perfect for three nights. We rented the entire inn and ate most of our meals there. The service was great, the food outstanding.... More

My wife and I got married last April at the Bear and Bison Inn. It was simply perfect thanks to Lonny and his staff. The setting of the Inn is very romantic with one of the most gorgeous views out of the main lobby and dining area. Our friends and family took over the entire Inn for the weekend and... More

My husband and I chose the Bear and Bison for our wedding on January 9th 2007. Lonny, the owner, was very helpful and spent lots of time giving us all the info we needed, before we made a definitive decision. To make a long store short, everything about our wedding, both ceremony and reception was just perfect! Our overnight guests... More
