This place was a highlight of my travels. Here's why:
First off the hostess, Val. She really looked out for us. She gave us maps, chatted with us about our itineraries, and made good suggestions. She helped arrange reservations as we planned out our stay and really just genuinely put a lot of effort into making sure we had the best trip possible. I only regret that I missed out on her cooking!
The accommodations were awesome. We had a spacious room decorated in mountain decor. Val said that she and her husband had built the place themselves reusing wood from older places in Canmore. You could really sense that this was a place full of story.
The location was awesome as well. It's walking distance to tons of shops, restaurants as well as mountain trails. It was a perfect home base for our trips to Banff, Lake Louise and other spots in the region.
