My 16 year old son stayed here for 2 nights near the end of our stay in Alberta. Extremely clean, comfortable, relaxing and the staff were nice. The hot tub was great after a day of hiking. The breakfasts were good - one day we had a smoothie, fruit salad and a breakfast taco. The other day we had blueberry... More

Nice hotel which allowed early check in which was handy. Beds were comfortable and it was nice to have the use of a fridge (shared). The bath/shower in the room was slightly bizarre at first however it was nice.

Having the opportunity to get a way for a few days in the middle of the week we looked at a variety of places to travel to & places to stay once we got there. When we decided on Canmore we checked Trip Advisor, and Bear & Bison came up with some strong reviews and after checking out some other... More

We held our wedding here for our immediate family on July 7, 2016. We rented the Inn for just our group of 17 people from July 6-8 and it was perfect. The attention to detail that Lonny (the owner) and Leah (the event coordinator) provide is bar none the best of I have ever seen. Leading up to our arrival,... More

My sister and (to be) brother-in-law booked the Bear and Bison Inn for their wedding. The Inn holds ten rooms I believe and they booked them all. In essence they booked the Inn for this special occasion for 3 days. The experience during the time we were there was absolutely fantastic. Everything from the incredible mountain views to the outside... More

We had our wedding at the Bear and Bison Inn last year on September 4th. The Bear and Bison staff were incredibly accommodating even though we only gave them a short 3 week notice before our day! We so appreciated the wonderful organization and flexibility from our arrival, to the ceremony, the reception and the morning breakfast for our guests... More

I was best man at a very recent wedding held here. I can honestly say that the staff was very organized and helpful at every turn. Timing was on point and they made suggestions that was in the best interest of their guests. It has pretty cool and unique decorations and the view from their balcony is stunning. There is... More

Lonny and his staff really know how to make you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door! Lonny shared his knowledge of the area to send us off for the day, we visited Banff and Lake Louise and took all of his recommendations! The breakfast was fantastic, I cant say enough good things about those scones!! We... More

I am not exaggerating when I say this was absolutely the best place in the WORLD for our intimate destination wedding. I researched many different locations in Canada, US, Caribbeans... and I have no regrets whatsoever we chose the Bear and Bison in Canmore. Just in case you still have any doubts, let me tell you: 1. The surrounding Rockies... More

We had our wedding on June 4th at the Inn and the staff absolutely crushed it. They were laid back and did a fantastic job of keeping everything and everyone relaxed. Special shout-out to Lonnie, Fiona, Leah, Mark and the rest of the staff for taking great care of everyone. Food was top notch, rooms are nice and large with... More
