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

I booked this B&B for a surprise birthday present for my husband and had no regrets! We were visiting from Ontario and looking for a comfortable and affordable lodging close to Banff National Park. After full days of hiking and outdoor activities this B&B was our oasis. The bed was comfortable, rustic decor was wonderful, staff friendly, and location superb!... More

Professional and accommodating staff! From the moment we arrived we were treated as guests, not as customers. Would highly recommend this Inn! Thank you to Leah, Storme, Hans, Darlene, Marc and Lonny for such an unforgettable experience. We will most definitely be back!

The Bear and Bison Inn and staff made our wedding truly memorable by providing a home away from home for our dearest friends and family who all came to celebrate our wedding in the most amazing place.

Excellent service and wonderful food to complement a two day family wedding celebration. A superior experience in a beautiful setting. A great hiking trail is right outside the door ! Downtown is a very short drive away or enjoy a leisurely stroll.
