We could not have asked for anything more, A Bear and Bison Country Inn was the best venue for our small wedding of 40 people on August 13, 2011. Our guests fell in love with this boutique hotel and were truly amazed by the exceptional experience of the weekend. It was truly magical. The rooms are gorgeous and each one... More

We chose the Bear & Bison Inn as our wedding venue in May 2011, and we couldn't have made a better choice. Our guests were simply charmed by their accommodations, and breakfast each morning was unique, excellent and beautifully presented. We had both vegetarian and celiac guests, and their dietary needs were accommodated handily by the Bear & Bison staff.... More

We celebrated our wedding at the Bear and Bison and we wouldn't have changed a thing! The food was INCREDIBLE, in fact several guests commented on how delicious it was and how it was the best dinner they've ever had at a wedding. My father who's often hard to please LOVED it!!! Lonny made it extra special by sending us... More

This inn offers nothing more than a chain hotel; in fact, for the money one might be better off staying in a Holiday Inn. Like most hotel chains, it's located directly on a major road in a Canmore "suburb." Unlike most chains, the advertised hot tub is so old that few of the jets even work and none of the... More

Enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for couples. Located a short drive from downtown Canmore, it was easy to get around and provided a great view of the mountains. The inn & rooms are nicely decorated & clean. We stayed in Room 8 which is located on the lower level. It had a pull-out sofa and a nice outdoor... More

My wife and I booked the Bear and Bison for our wedding in late Feb. 2011.... it could not have been a better experience. Lonny, Danielle, Dave and Katy made sure that all of our guests (26) were happy and comfortable at all times - truthfully, the service was outstanding, friendly and accomodating, they took care of everything from the...

The food was incredible and never ending! The views from the rooms are stunning and unhindered from other hotels. The staff is really great and VERY attentive. Absolutely, the best setting for a wedding and reception. Really loved it and would return again.

My friends wedding was held at the inn and everyone was impressed with absolutely everything. I was a guest as well as the cake decorator. The staff had no problem letting me keep the cake in their fridge and went out of their way to make sure that I had what I needed for the final touches.... Although nobody was... More

We stayed here while visiting family and we loved this place! Rustic decor, but very classy at the same time. Gazebo and flowers were beautiful! Stayed in Rm 7, close to hot tub. Breakfast was first class and staff were very friendly. Highly recommend it!

A Bear & Bison was our choice of venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. The staff ensured that our day went without a glitch and that our guests (whether staying at the Inn or just there for the reception) were well taken care of. The food was amazing and no one went hungry! Far Beyond our expectations!!! Lonny and... More
