Artistic 2 Bdrm: Exquisite Decor, Glass Walls and Soaring Views!
A vacation rental like no other... Aesthetics and comfort have been given equal emphasis at this stunning 2BR/2bath luxury loft, located just 3 minutes from the Banff National Park gates. We are right in the heart of Canmore, 2 blocks from Main Street, so every amenity you would want is at your doorstep!
The luxury loft features a gourmet kitchen, heated underground parking, 23-foot vaulted ceilings & soaring 8-foot walls of glass flanking a cozy log/riverstone fireplace. You will enjoy stunning views whether you are lounging in the plush feather beds, relaxing on the leather sofa, working out in the gym, or soaking in the rooftop hottub!
Here, you won't find lacklustre furnishings prevalent in most vacation rentals. Instead, every piece of antique barnwood and log furnishing is exquisite and custom crafted by artisan, earning this home a reputation as the area's most artistic loft. We have become one of the most sought-after lofts for discerning honeymooners, families, and those looking for a vacation experience that is a cut above the rest.
Aside from the comfortable, nailhead-studded, top-grain leather sofa in the living room, there is (remarkably) no store-bought furniture in the loft! As such, every piece of furnishing is unique and has a story to tell. Skilled artisans from all over Canada were commissioned to craft unique works of art, based on the artist-owner's sketches and designs. The interior design and furnishings reflect the tranquil beauty of the Canadian Rockies; hence, the liberal use of birch, willow and lodgepole pine throughout.
There are visual delights at every turn -- the trapezoidal birch-willow dining table, the soaring 20-foot console table made from a polished birch slab and ancient root stumps, the late 1800s crackle barnwood armoire, the romantic lodgepole log canopy bed that's custom-crafted from diamond willow twigs... and much more...
We are proud of our impeccable furnishings as we are firm believers that an exquisite ambiance can make the difference between a vacation that is merely good, and one that is truly unforgettable!
It is likely apparent, even from website photos alone, that this property offers a rather different caliber of accommodation. That is because this property was not furnished to be a vacation rental per se. It was meticulously decorated by the artist-owner to be her second home, and her primary place to rejuvenate. As such, it is unlikely that you will find another place decked out quite as artistically or as lovingly as this one!
But don't take our word for it. Here is a small sample of our guests' rave reviews:
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful, well-appointed mountain retreat. We appreciated the thoughtful little touches which we did not have in the other unit below (which we also rented). It helps in making a big birthday special.

Wow! Your condo is fabulous. I am taking home many ideas to furnish our own condo up. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Carol and Sara S. - Penticton, British Columbia
Thank you for having us at such a wonderful and unique place. As mentioned many times before in this Guest Book, the furniture truly makes the place and creates a true Western Canadian atmosphere. Our departure...marks the end of a 2-week honeymoon in the Canmore and Banff area. This was a great place to have it conclude.
Kyle and Lindsay S. - Toronto, Ontario
We had a great time here. This is our 3rd week of a 4 month vacation. This condo is my favorite place that we have stayed. It is so comfortable. I had the bedroom/loft upstairs. The bed was so cozy! I wish that that was my bed at home! I also love the huge window in the living room. The patio was nice too, like everything else. We have had a fantastic time here. Even my dad liked it!

We enjoyed your beautiful condo immensely. What incredible taste and aesthetic harmony they attest to. We hope to come back many times in the future.

Thank you so much for the lovely stay. It truly came to feel like home, but better. The skiing was awesome for this time of year and the people are so friendly. We love Canmore and that why we chose it for our honeymoon.
Greg and Angele S.
Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountain home! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and especially appreciate all the amenities (covered parking!, washer/dryer, DVD player etc). Your home is beautifully appointed and perfect for a mountain setting. Clearly a lot of love and labor went into the finishings of the condo. We hope to make Banff/Canmore our annual spring break destination.

Brenda and Wendy T., Al C., Rosetta A.; Kitimat, British Columbia, and Vancouver, British Columbia
Wow! Our stay here has been an amazing experience! We have felt at home and yet truly pampered by the luxuries of this condo. We were in heaven as we explored Johnston Canyon, Radium Hot Springs, Banff, Bow Valley River, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake, Emerald Lake canoeing, rafting on the Kicking Horse, spotting elk, grizzly bears (2!), mountain goats and big-horned sheep, and taking in the breathtaking mountain views! Memories :-) Thank you!
