This lovely inn was the venue for our daughter's recent wedding and we couldn't have been happier with everything. We stayed in a room at the inn for a couple of days. The room was clean, comfortable and included a wonderful 3 course breakfast each day which was so good that our son even set his alarm to ensure he...

My daughter's wedding took place here. Every detail was looked after by Leah, she did a wonderful job. It was a weekend where all of us were pampered not just the bride and groom. The food was fabulous and the service impeccable. If you are looking for a place to host a wedding in Canmore, this is it. Again thanks...

The 3-course breakfast was amazing. The peaches in cream was a fresh treat. They delivered at the time slotted with zero issues. This was an oasis in the mountains with a jacuzzi tub in the room. The staff was very friendly and accommodating

I would just like to inform future brides that this may not be the venue to host your wedding. It seems so quaint and it's such a lovely bed&breakfast. They have 10 rooms.

Loved this B&B. Excellent value! The three course breakfast was delicious - we stayed 3 nights and weren't disappointed! We were in room #8 which is perfect for anyone with a family of four as there was a trundle bed so our kids didn't have to worry about sharing a bed! Hard to find this sleeping arrangement in hotels and...
