Stayed with our friends and family for a week visit of the Banff and local parks. Location is easy to find driving from Calgary YYC. Location is close to grocery, fast food, and restaurants. Location was ideal for day trips we took to Lake Louise, Marble Canyon, Peyto Lake, Mont Sulpher, and Upper Hot Springs. Wi-fi fast enough to keep us connected. The photos of window views do not do justice to the inspiring beauty you see outside, facing the condo. Hosts were responsive and helpful! Made a lot of good memories because of the experiences we could have together with our friends and family.
Our group of 9 enjoyed our stay at the Havens and skiing the Canadian Rockies. The beauty of the area is truly unbelievable with wide valleys and majestic white capped mountains rising straight out the valleys. The drives to Banff and the ski resorts are inspiring. Canmore is wonderful town to call your base as it is very walkable from the condo and not as touristy as Banff, but with plenty of neat retail shops and restaurants. The condo also has two grocery stores within 100 meters and a nature food store within a couple of blocks. That is a nice feature to not have to drive for groceries. We enjoyed the convenience of the rooftop hot tub which was one flight of stairs to access in addition to the wonderful views of the mountains. There was also a fitness room right across the hall with an additional bathroom and shower in the event we needed it....nice feature! Having the condos side by side was very convenient for our group....particularly for meals, getting together and coordination of outings. Both units were well appointed and had plenty of space to accommodate 4 to 5 adults in each unit.
At this time we are trying to figure out a time to head back since there are several things we missed out doing this time. The Havens will be our first call.
