“A wonderful stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

We first stayed here for our honeymoon in June 2011. We had such a wonderful experience that we decided to come back for our first anniversary. The inn is beautiful, the staff are excellent, and the breakfast is superb! We'll definitely keep coming back!

Room Tip: Both times we stayed in the Honeymoon rooms, and they are very beautiful.

We stayed here for our friends wedding.
The entire inn and rooms are well decorated and clean. The rooms are large and very comforable.
In the morning we enjoyed an amazing breakfast of oatmeal, scone, fruit, smoothie, coffee, and huevose rancheros. This very filling, delicious meal could keep us going all day but then we were also treated to a picnic basket of goodies to take out on our days activities.
The wedding reception was held here with a delightful meal of gourmet pizzas, ceasar salad, fresh fruit and desserts.
All staff and owner were incredibly delightful and helpful.
The location has great views and was nice and quiet. There is a restaurant, convenience store and hiking withing walking distance of the inn.
I would highly recommend this place if you are staying in the Banff/Canmore area or if you are planning a wedding in the area.

Room Tip: Room # 8 does not have a tub.

Our friends and family, my new husband and I are still sharing the Inn, and all the work Lonny and staff did to care for us. Lonny and his staff are wonderful. They made the wedding even more relaxing then I thought it could be. They give you a quiet little quaint atmosphere yet totally sophisticated. Lonny (Owner) was incredibly patient and attentive to our plan and his suggestions could not have been better for the ceremony and the reception/dinner. Thanks again for all you did for us. Amazing!

Our friends families, my newly wed husband and I are still talking about the incredible service and the delicious food from our wedding in June/12.
Lonny and his staff are wonderful! They accommodated us and our guests in every way and it could not have been a better day. Charlotte and Jaime decorated the reception/dinner hall to a T. Our guests loved the rooms with the canopy beds and all the other simple little touches that made it a beautiful place to stay for 3 days.
The food was amazing, every meal from the 3 course breakfasts to the in-room lunches and the huge selection of dinner options were all delicious.
Lonny was there for every detail and kept us on budget without any pressure to spend more.
We would recommend The Bear and Bison to anyone but especially to couples looking for a wedding venue and lodging for your guests. Five Stars!!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful!

To start, my wife and I personally visited every major wedding venue in the Banff, Alberta area, from Silvertip Resort to the Banff Fairmont Hotel before settling on the perfectly quaint, surprisingly sophisticated "A Bear and Bison Country Inn". Lonny (Owner) was incredibly attentive to our plan and his suggestions not only saved us money, but also ensured that our wedding met (and exceeded) every expectation that we had. The chef, Jarod, cooked up an amazing spread that was exactly tailored to our unusual requests. The bartender, Marc, was the most engaging and accommodating that I've ever dealt with (and that's saying something). Jess was a world-class server and hostess and Charlotte made sure that we were absolutely comfortable throughout. The rooms are clean and brilliantly decorated, each with a unique flavor that is in tune with the beautiful mountain area. Lonny's experience in planning was instrumental in executing the "perfect wedding" (according to all of our guests). If I had it to do over, I'd change nothing. Lonny and staff, thank you for the best weekend of our life...we owe it all to you.

We spent one night here and were truly spoiled. Everything was perfect. Having let our own property in the past we noticed all the little details and they have them right. We would recommend this place to anyone wanting a romantic time away.

Room Tip: Our room had both a Jacuzzi and shower. 2nd floor with a balcony. The breakfast was do die for.

We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon trip around the rockies and would highly recommend the Bear and Bison Inn. The rooms are large and very well presented, with a balcony and even a jacuzzi in the room. We had a great time here and would definitely stay again, the staff were all really friendly and helpful. The owner spent ages giving us advice and tips for the best local sights to see and walks to do during our stay and the best places to eat and drink. The breakfast was amazing, delicious and lots of it! If you are going to Canmore (and I recommend you do as it is a lovely little town) then make sure you stay at the Bear and Bison.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 1, the honeymoon suite.....it was great!
