Just got back from a great trip to Canmore. We stayed at the Sunset Resort property and had an absolutely wonderful time. We got the week through an II trade and are glad we did. As frequent travelers who are used to staying in nice places, we have certainly had more upscale rooms, but have never encountered better service or better hospitality than we did in our week at Sunset. That said, the room is still nice. The bottom line is that the staff’s attitude is that they could not do enough for you.
Along with many of our fellow travelers, we started the week at the Sunday orientation breakfast and came away with several new suggestions and tips about the area, though we had been to the area previously, and not a sales pitch in sight. Meanwhile, a freak Sunday morning August snow storm was going on outside. It did all melt by afternoon.
Every week the staff provides a free steak (or chicken) dinner on Monday evening. Despite the number of fine restaurants in Canmore and Banff, it ended up being our best meal of the week. There was plenty to eat, plenty to drink along with lots of fun and a great chance to meet your fellow travelers and the Sunset staff. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
The staff had planned activities just about every day for those who were interested. We participated in a group hike to Grassi Lake and a mountain biking trip and had a great time. Staff members actively lead and participate in the events and even filled out a foursome for a golf outing. They genuinely seem to have a great time doing it as well, which makes everyone else have a good time. Additionally there was a wine (frozen drinks and beer as well) and cheese party on Thursday for the guests. It probably goes without saying, but everyone had a great time.
Do take the time to really visit the area as it is some of the best natural scenery that you will ever come across. We took trips to Yoho and Kootenay National Parks in B.C. along with trips to Lake Louise, Johnston Canyon and Kananaskis Country. Don’t miss Moraine Lake and Peyto Lake, 2 of the most beautiful lakes you will ever see. There is just so much to see and do in the area.
In closing, 3 cheers to the staff a/k/a the extreme team of Phil, Steve, Sean and Richard. They made our week a great, memorable week of vacation. We are looking forward to coming back for a winter vacation at Sunset, with a whole other agenda of activities. The dog sledding does seem like lots of fun.
