Rockies Rentals assists visitors with finding the perfect vacation rental unit by combining the personal service associated with booking a unit direct with the owner, with the security and professionalism of booking with a company. We have a number of properties, including this property, available for your mountain adventure.
4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, 5800 Square Feet, Max 10 Guests
Building ID: Private Homes
Unit: Silvertip Heights
Description: Welcome to a unique architecturally designed private residence that is set high on a mountain near the end of a quiet cul de sac overlooking the town of Canmore, Alberta. The home was completed in 2008 and will appeal to people with an interest in modern design with an alpine flair. The house is located in a four-season development centered around a golf course and backs onto miles of protected government land with hiking, biking, and winter sports out your door. The home features spectacular mountain views from every angle.
This 5800+ square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms, all with hand-laid glass mosaic tiled ensuite bathrooms. There is an additional powder room off the kitchen/dining area. The house is large enough for family reunions or corporate retreats, yet intimate in scale for smaller groups. The bedrooms are spread out in the house over 3 levels to provide the maximum amount of separation and privacy. Just a few of the unique touches include reclaimed maple flooring, imported Italian door hardware, heated ensuite floors, quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry, and an indoor rock climbing area!
Main Level: The large foyer leads into the open concept kitchen/dining area with reclaimed maple hardwood flooring throughout. The fully-equipped kitchen features everything you need to prepare the perfect meal and Whirlpool stainless steel appliances: double oven, gas 5-burner cooktop, side-by-side refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, microwave oven. Enjoy a quick bite to eat at the eat-in bar (seats 6) or sit down for a grander meal at the dining room table (seats 12). The custom kitchen features quarter-sawn white oak cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances. Don't forget to turn on the gas wall fireplace to set the mood while enjoying dinner! You can relax in the spacious living room in front of the river-rock fireplace while reveling in the mountain view that surrounds you.
Upper Level: The upper level features a grand master bedroom with custom walk-in closet and an indoor balcony which looks onto the 3-story indoor rock climbing area. The ensuite bathroom features a walk-in shower with glass enclosure and double vanities with plenty of storage. At the end of your day of hiking/skiing/golfing, enjoy a soak in the jetted soaker tub while enjoying the mountain view prior to climbing into the queen size bed. You'll wish you could stay forever.
The upper level is also home to the 2nd bedroom, featuring an ensuite bathroom, large closet and queen bed. Use the office area and computer to email all your friends and tell them what a great time you are having in the Canadian Rockies. Wireless internet access is also available for those guests that would prefer to use their own computer. If you haven't gotten enough of the views from the numerous windows, take a stroll on the large balcony that wraps around the side of the home, and connects to the even larger balcony down below.
Lower Level: If you are travelling with kids, they will love the lower level! The lower level is the ultimate sleepover area! It features a bunk room with 3 single beds, ensuite bathroom, media room, ping pong table, foosball table and access to the 3-story indoor rock climbing area, with bouldering wall*. For entertaining, enjoy use of the large wet bar to mix your favourite cocktails, or pour a glass of wine from a bottle that's been chilling on the wine cooler. *This area can be locked off so curious kids can look, but not touch. Children must be supervised when using the climbing area.

"Such a lovely stay in your beautiful home. Thank you so much for the warm hospitality. May you and your family have many wonderful times this summer and over the years so that when you are 72 (at least) you'll have a fabulous store of precious memories. This weekend
will always be one of my special memories." Read more
We are certainly going to take your advice on collecting special memories! We're happy that some of your memories were made at this very special home.

House is more than excellent, it should have ten star ratings. It has all the amenities and the house is well equipped with all the kitchen necessities.
The view from living room and upstairs bedroom is like no other.
Park passes they had saved us time and money.
The owner has equipped the house with everything that is required in daily life.
We have been visiting different countries for the last ten years and renting either apartments or houses, this house was the best.

Getting in and out of the house was a breeze. The house is incredible, with a great view, and was large enough for our big family. Location is great - not far from the highway. Would absolutely rent again.
"A wonderful, relaxed family retreat for all ages"

The whole experience renting this house was exceptional - the prompt and courteous service at Rockies Rentals, the beautiful house exactly as presented on the website, and all the little amenities included in the house. The only surprises were all good ones. The house was spotless, absolutely well equipped in the kitchen and the playroom, including foozball, table-top hockey, table-top tennis, board-games. The heated bathroom floors were a big hit. A perfectly stressless family reunion, with plenty of room for us all to spread out and relax. Extremely quiet location. We had 3 huge buck elk grazing next to the house on our first night. When we sadly had to leave, as we were getting into the car, my grand-nephew waved to the house and said 'bye bye mansion'.

Thank you for your kind words. It is guest experiences like this that make us smile, and remind us all why we do this for a living. Our housekeepers will be most pleased, as well. It is difficult to clean every square inch of a 5800 square foot house!
I'm pleased the wild animals stopped by to say 'hello' so that the entire family could have a truly unique Canadian Rockies experience. Next time you stay, we'll ask the deer to make a visit as well ;)
"Great vacation home for family and friends!"

We stayed in this beautiful house for a week while in Canmore celebrating our daughter's wedding.
The sitting room and dining area are spacious and beautifully furnished.
On the balcony there is a barbeque big enough to cater for a large group - but a few more seats would have been nice.
The mountain views from the house are amazing.
Although the house is close to others, we hardly saw anyone and certainly did not feel overlooked even on the balcony.
The large kitchen is well equipped and a joy to work in. There is also a small office area with a computer as well as wi-fi thoughout the house.
The media room downstairs is a great place for relaxing in front of the tv or playing games.
We did not use the rock room or climb the wall and feel the space could have been better used in adding a third bedroom on the top floor...
The four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms accommodate eight people and there are additional sleeping facilities for a further two-four people but without the privacy.
The house was immaculately clean on our arrival and there were plenty of cleaning materials for small scale cleaning during our stay. All laundry products are provided as well as some basic producs in the kitchen.
We discovered one pub/restaurant in a walking distance -if you can face the up hill on the way back - The Iron Goat is about 15min walk starting from the end of the road, through the wooded area, some residential streets and across a playing field. Average taxi fare from downtown was 10-12cad.
We recommend you check the small print as inviting non-residents to visit the house is not allowed under the terms of agreement. We partially overcame this problem by having other wedding guests stay in another Rockies Rentals accommodation.
We warmly recommend this property and would definately return if it wasn't for the distance from the UK and all the other Provinces of Canada to be discovered... :)

The house was very well located and so was the service. One great thing was we were given 2 passes into Banff NP, thus saving us a bit of money and daily hassale.
All things considered, the home and service was great...the price, hmm, a little pricey.

This was our first time to the Canadian Rockies and it was fabulous! The rental home at Silver Tip Heights is beautiful, convenient to everything you would want to do yet private and not in an area that has significant tourists. There was ample room for our extended family and we would highly recommend it!

We spent 8 days at this home while skiing at the Canmore Nordic Center and touring Canmore and Banff. We were fortunate that snow arrived just a few days before we did (on November 19). We encountered bitter cold, with high temps around zero (F) the first several days. But by the end of our stay the temps were close to 20 F and much more comfortable for skiing.
The house is as beautiful as it looks. It is fully equipped. We cooked our american Thanksgiving dinner and had everything we needed. We were 8 in number - four adults and four kids ages 9-15 - which was ideal, though we could have slept two more comfortably.
The house is spacious and modern. It's perhaps a bit too spacious and spartan for my taste. Also affecting this feeling was the fact that the heat wasn't turned on properly before our arrival. The in-house temps were about 55 F when we got there and it took almost 36 hours before it stabilized at 69. We called about the heat, but it wasn't clear to us that changing the temperature remotely had an effect, though clearly, either our fidgeting with the system or the remote people fidgeting with it got it to work better. The infloor heat in the basement was most comfortable.
The basement had a TV set up with satellite/cable and we spent a fair amount of time there.
We brought our own slippers -- a must. Some additional blankets/throws for the couch areas would be an improvement. And perhaps an additional TV. We're not big on TV, but for this trip it would have been nice to have one.
Our kids loved the climbing wall, and though they didn't climb on it every possible moment, it's clear that the existence of the wall was something that was remarkable to them.
The scenery is absolutely beautiful. Top score also goes to the kitchen, which was modern, clean and well equipped.
The house as a whole was very clean. Infloor heating in the bathrooms was nice.

We absolutely loved our stay at this beautiful home while we visited Canmore and would not hesitate to go back. Everything about this spacious home, from the awesome kitchen, the mountain view, outdoor fireplace and the indoor rock climbing wall exceeded our expectations!! Our extended family had no negative comments about our stay and we enjoyed our time in the home with constant smiles on our faces. Thanks again for making your home available to our family.

We enjoyed a fantastic week-long vacation here & are already planning our next visit! There was lots of room for everyone to enjoy different activities and areas in the house at the same time and still have privacy. Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful.

The kids loved the room at the front to read, play
cards, get away from adults. The kitchen was
incredibly well equipped. I even made muffins. The
Canmore Quad Tour was amazing (thanks Chuck!) White
water rafting was fun. Loved the street fair on
Saturday. Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Rustica. Elk
paid us a visit to our kitchen window on Friday. Did
a run with Run Fit group on Sunday ... lots of fun.
