“Good location, value for money”
Reviewed June 22, 2014 via mobile

We rented Gopher Cabin, a basement "cabin". Very cute, clean and secure. Kitchen was well equipped but we ended up eating out every night as less than a 5 min walk to main street.

Laura, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful, providing home made granola for breakfast as well as cookies throughout the day.

Good location for walking round Banff and for further afield.

A very nice place to stay.

This was a great find! Laura was so welcoming when we arrived, helpful and provided us with cookies, lemonade and also, her special granola for breakfast. Lloyd was very helpful when we had what we thought was a problem. We stayed in the Bear cabin which was roomy with a good kitchenette and comfy bed. The cabins are two small blocks from the main street and very quiet. If you need to do laundry, there is a great laundry in the basement floor of the Cascades Shopping Centre, a short walk away. Convenient for doing your shopping while waiting. I had two loads washed and dried within an hour. Everything in town is within easy walking distance. There are nice areas in the garden to spend time.

Room Tip: The Bear cabin was particularly good for two people and fine for three.

We are two families, 4 adults and 2 kids, stayed 4 nights in fox cabin. Laura and Lloyd are super friendly. The cabins are small but very clean. There is also a portable electrical stove. The sofa bed as everywhere is soggy but the kids love it. The freshly baked bread for breakfast is fantastic. Many fruits. Different types of jams. Bread were covered with towels or in container. They also have some toys and sports equipment for kids. On site parking.

The location is very close to Tunnel mountain and Bow river.

This place was the highlight of our holiday it was such a great place to stay. Laura was very welcoming and provided the lovliest little touches to make the place homely and welcoming.

We stayed in the Bear cabin and it was immaculate and clean, it really was like being in our own little house. The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to cook full meals when we could be bothered! It was quiet and private and about a two minute walk to get to the main shopping street so very central.

Laura provided home make biscuits and lemonade in the afternoon and a lovely breakfast of granola,home made bread and jams with fresh fruit. The food is left covered on a table by main reception so you just wander out and get what you want and take it back to your cabin if you prefer.

Would love to go back!

The cabins are only a block away from the main street, but that makes them quiet at night. Owner Laura is most welcoming and provides homemade granola, coffee, orange juice, milk, cookies, fruit and fresh rolls for breakfast and snacks. There is a little table and chairs outside each cabin, but the wasps were not conducive to al fresco dining on our visit. The little kitchen enabled microwave meals and snacks. You might find a deer in the garden!

Room Tip: We were in Lynx, which is a tiny cabin with a double bed and everything else fitted around it. It w...

Stayed for three days in the Gopher Suite while hiking in the Canadian Rockies. Very spacious area with kitchen, dining area and two beds (full and twin). Lots of storage space at top of stairs and throughout suite. Owner made delightful rolls and bread + had fresh fruit daily. Shower in suite is small -- anyone over 6'6" could not fit. Decor was a bit dated and lighting was harsh in many rooms. But those are very small points in an otherwise excellent stay. One block walk to Banff Ave. and commercial district. Highly recommend.
