We used this B&B as our base for exploring Yoho, Banff, and Kootenay National Parks. We stayed 5 days in the Purcell Suite. Excellent, clean, quiet, large, comfortable one bedroom apartment with a full kitchen and our own separate entrance. Our hostess was super kind and patient. Due to the great Calgary floods, we had to make a number of last minute changes to our trip and she patiently worked with us and was super accommodating as we finalized our plans. She also booked us a great white water rafting trip with Glacier Rafting. This was truly a home away from home. It was an easy 5 minute drive to town for food shopping. Soby's supermarket had the best bakery and we got some scrumptious cakes and croissants from there. We were able to prepare our lunches for super picnics during our hikes. A real plus allowing us to really enjoy the beautiful scenery at leisure.
It was about a 45 minute drive through a beautifully paved and gorgeous highway to Lake Louise. We saw tons of animals on our drives. There was no traffic congestion and the drive was very pleasant.
Yoho is just 20 minutes from Canyon Ridge (see my review on Yoho) and the hot springs of Kootenay is about 1 hour away (see my review on Fairmont Hot Springs).
Everything about Canyon Ridge is excellent. Only one little suggestion: The suite does not have air conditioning. It is not a problem as it never got really hot or muggy. However, the duvet provided was a bit heavy on the hotter nights and a lighter covering would be more comfortable for sleeping.
