Beautiful location, people, food and best of all an intimate wedding venue. The rooms are all well appointed, we were able to see them all as we had the entire inn to ourselves for the weekend. If you are searching for a location for a gathering this is an awesome spot. The preparation of the staff showed how important their... More

I would just like to inform future brides that this may not be the venue to host your wedding. It seems so quaint and it's such a lovely bed&breakfast. They have 10 rooms. It's perfect as far as accommodations go. What a beautiful retreat in the mountains! Our party booked the entire inn for the LabourDay long weekend. There was... More

Loved this B&B. Excellent value! The three course breakfast was delicious - we stayed 3 nights and weren't disappointed! We were in room #8 which is perfect for anyone with a family of four as there was a trundle bed so our kids didn't have to worry about sharing a bed! Hard to find this sleeping arrangement in hotels and... More

We used the Bear & Bison for our wedding in May, and were not disappointed! We had decided on a small wedding, and considered Bear & Bison as an intimate venue. It fit perfectly with our vision of having our guests arrive, relax, and enjoy. All food was amazing (in particular, the reception dinner - the meal was exquisite)! The... More

I've stayed in many hotels/B&B's in Banff and Canmore over the years. The Bear and Bison is my new favourite place to stay during a mountain get away. This B&B has an irresistible charm and I can't wait to go back. We stayed from Aug 12-14. Upon check-in we were promptly greeted and given the key to our room. I... More

From the scenery you are surrounded by to the breakfast in bed each day, beer in room, chocolate covered strawberries and a huge tub to soak in together. It was a great weekend to spend with my husband. Highly recommended. Staff even stayed late on Friday night to check us is as we drove 4 hours and arrived after 10pm.... More
