We celebrated our 35th anniversary in the Forest Suite at the Canadian Artisans B & B. It was our first visit to this B & B, but definitely won't be our last. We were so impressed with our hosts, Val and Bob, and their incredible place. Every attention to detail, including chocolate writing on our fruit plate to chocolates on the bedside tables at nighttime. There was an inviting soaker tub, beautiful stained glass in the windows and doors, and peace and quiet all day and night long. They are less than 5 minutes down a forest path to the river with many paths to explore and a mere 1 block to main street Canmore and all Canmore has to offer. Val was very knowledgable about Canmore and surrounding areas, as well as where to eat and what to check out. Her breakfasts were second to none, with a great selection of fruits, walnut bread, cheese and a variation of a ham and cheese omelet that was delicious. Also homemade granola, yogurts and juice and coffee. They are located just off a very quiet street, with a mountain view out every window, and surrounded by forest. The room was comfortable and cozy with a very warm fireplace and fairies and dragons keeping a watchful eye on all. Bob and Val are the most gracious hosts, and we would very highly recommend a visit to their home. We have stayed a several B & B's, but have not been as impressed as we were at Canadian Artisan's. We had a chance to peak in at the Tree House room and it was also very inviting. They are very proud of their rooms, which include custom wood work by Bob. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found this gem and look forward to returning very soon.
