“Rocky Mountain High - in Canada”
Wonderful vacation! Location of this condo is great. Very convenient to walk around town and visit parks on day trips. My teenage kids loved the balcony, hot tub and walks through town. My husband (all of us actually) loved the walk to Tim Hortons! On our last day, we finally saw 3 grizzlies up around Lake Louise! Loved Lake Moraine (walking the rock pile) and the Columbia Icefields trip. The Radium Hotsprings weren't that great but the trip was pretty. Also, husband and son enjoyed golf at Canmore Golf Club. We really enjoyed our stay at Birch Haven and the Canadian Rockies. That is a great location and the area is absolutely beautiful. I can see how anyone who visits falls in love with the mountains! Thanks again for sharing your jewel in the Rockies. It was a great vacation!
The owner was accommodating and gracious with our special requests (related to booking as well as during our stay). The condo was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was better stocked (for cookware and dishes) than many other places we've rented. The vaulted ceiling was great. The furniture was comfortable. The large bath in the loft was a bonus, too. The reason we can't rate "Excellent" is due to the loft configuration. It's a bed and bath combo deal, but there is no door or screen between the toilet and the rest of the space. So, not great for privacy. Also, the bed in the loft, complete with canopy, is too large for the space. We couldn't reach past the headboard to open the window and it was quite warm in the loft. As well, there was no blind on that window, so we were awake with the dawn. So, if you don't mind the unshielded toilet/bath/sink and bed combo, and you like being up with the sun, you'd probably love it. =) We also thought it unusual that there were no hand towels provided, nor tissues. Our favourite thing about this rental is its location. Convenient for lots of amenities. Just a short, pleasant walk across the bridge to Main Street and some great restaurants.
Response from the owner Hi Sandra, We are glad to know you enjoyed your stay, and thanks for giving us your feedback, which we'd like to respond to below... We actually DO have a curtain in the loft bedroom. It is mounted on the canopy bed itself (instead of the window); just remove the decorative ties, let them drop, and they will serve to darken the sleeping area. Perhaps it wasn't obvious and we need to do a better job pointing that out. As for access to the window, this can be done from the right side. Additionally, we provide 3 fans and a ceiling fan, in the event guests want additional airflow. The configuration of the loft bathroom is necessitated by Canmore’s fire/building code. All lofts are subject to the code so we cannot modify the design. On the plus side, guests have the choice of 2 bathrooms with different styles. Some guests have actually told us this loft bath was a highlight because it's unique and romantic, especially since it includes a large 2-person deep soaking tub. And since this is just one of 2 bathrooms, guests who prefer a more conventional bathroom usually just opt to use the main bathroom, which is a “traditional” bathroom. Regarding the handtowels and tissues: these are always provided, so if they were not available during your stay, we apologize. It must have been an oversight by the housekeeper on this occasion. Your feedback has been passed to the housekeeeper to ensure they remember in the future. Thanks also for letting us know that you had a pleasant stay, and that you enjoyed the various perks and amenities we provide for our guests. We try very hard to please, so your kind words are much appreciated too!
“Cozy, peaceful, convenient, nice touch place! Would stay again.”
The condo very is conveniently located, grocery stores, post office, restaurants, main street, etc. everything is 1 to 5 minutes away by foot. The owner is very nice, helpful and prompt in answering any questions. The booking was efficient and easy; all the instructions on how to get there, access the underground garage and the condo are provided. The condo has everything you need for an agreeable and comfy stay. Thoughts have been given into the décor and "not that common" furniture. Birch chairs, table, ... we liked the look of both beds! The upper bathroom would welcome some privacy with maybe some sort of stylish folding screen or something ... Take your coffee on our balcony looking at the mountains and in the evening watch the night fall. We had a couple rainy/cloudy days and it was nice to look out the large windows and watch the clouds travelling on the mountains. You can go dip in the hot tub on the roof (common area) but we did not. If you don't get enough exercise you can always use the gym. We stayed 12 days and it was quiet. Canmore itself is more relaxing and peaceful than Banff (in my opinion) which is just a short drive away. If you don't have one, the owner has a park pass available at no charge. Whatever activities you like to do everything is accessible. There are some nice easy walks to do just in/close around Canmore. For food try the Obistro on the main street. In summary if you want to enjoy a convenient, cozy, nice place to stay then Birch Haven is a great place to rent and a no brainer!
“Beautiful stay in Canmore”
The owners make it very easy to check in. You get a code that lets you into the building and into the condo. The condo was our base for our daily skiing excursions to Sunshine Village/Mt. Norquay and Lake Louise (a bit longer to drive). We liked Sunshine a lot, the snow was excellent. Mount Norquay is a smaller hill and that had its charm as well. The Banff ParkPass was included which made it easy traveling. Going to Banff was a quick trip and was very enjoyable. But Canmore had a lot going for it as well. All in all the condo is in a great location! Oh, forgot: and the Safeway is right across the street. We walked there to shop.
“birch heaven -you feel like in heaven :-)”
We stayed for 16 nights in the cosy ,warm charming condo and felt so comfortable and overwelmed from the very special furnitures . we love the whirkpool and the fireplace is a our favourite ,specially after a skiing day. Very good supermarkets, wine stores and sports stores around , also good for shopping ,nice because closed to Banff, easy going with the garage and not to forgett the Gym, which I also liked to use for good exercises. so we will recommend this lovley place . we send best regards from austria ,where we also do have cosy Chalets and rustic Cottages in the mountains for rental Ingrid and Robert www.holidayaustria.info
Birch Haven had everything we needed for a weekend away. Fully equipped kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms! The window seat could use some extra padding because it is a great place to sit but a bit uncomfortable. Easy access to everything in Canmore and close to Banff! We enjoyed a wonderful four days here :)
“Great Girls' Getaway”
Thanks for sharing your home with us - all 5 ladies had a fabulous weekend. We found the beds to be comfortable; I was surprised at how great a sleep I had on the hide-a-bed! We also loved the view from the hot tub. You have a fabulous get-away. Your condo is also perfectly located - especially with the Starbucks across the street and a quick walk to downtown and our new favourite restaurant, Crazy Weeds! We all plan on making the drive from Calgary just for their pizza and moussaka!
“Fabulous condo and great location!”
What a wonderful place to stay after driving 4 days from Toronto. The condo was warm and welcoming not to mention beautifully furnished and clean. Very comfortable 4 poster bed and two person tub in the loft were great. We ventured up to the rooftop hot tub to catch the sunrise a few times and were not disappointed. The owner was very helpful and the entire process was very efficient and well organized from the first contact till we walked through the door. There is an excellent liquor store attached to the condo with an amazing selection of wines and spirits. Shops of Main Street Canmore are an easy walk and spectacular mountain views are at every turn. Very pleasant experience. Thank you.
As we neared Birchhaven, late in the evening, my husband and I realized that we had not printed the specifics we needed to access our vacation home. The owner went above and beyond to get us into this beautiful site in the spectacular Canadian Rockies in the lovely town of Canmore. This wonderful service matched the amenities (washer and dryer, internet access) in this handsomely appointed space that the two of us lived in happily for a summer week. What a perfect base, with easy driving access to Banff and the marvelous National Park, but Canmore itself is a classy refuge, where we walked to restaurants, the grocery, and speciatly shops. Happy Hikers
