Very clean, although my studio room are small, but very cozy. The floral breeding set, the sofa, jacuzzi, the shampoo, lotions, welcome nuts snack...the details shows a lot of considerations. The air condition is a little noise, but I prefer not using it even at August, summer morning in Canmore is chill. The crew of this country style inn are...

I recently attended a staff retreat located at the Bear and Bison Inn and had a fantastic time. The Inn itself is situated in a great location and we overlooked the mountains from the balcony over the course of our retreat. The view of the mountains provided great inspiration. The rooms were quaint, yet spacious, the food was amazing, and...

This has been our second stay at a Bear and Bison, and it is for sure a favorite place to stay. All the rooms have such beautiful views of the Three Sisters and you can see Grotto mountain as well. We have stayed in 2 different rooms and they were both beautifully appointed, very clean, and very comfortable. All of...

We were on a weekend break to Banff and Canmore. We booked our accommodation late and the bear and bison was a last minute choice. It was a great choice, the staff were very nice and accommodating, we booked white water rafting and had to leave early so we would miss breakfast so they took it off our final bill....

We chose Canmore for the start of our two week tour of Banff and Jasper National Parks and used trip advisor to aid our decision for the first stopover. We were a little surprised at first as the photos give the impression of a rural location, but it is on the edge of town. To be honest that was not...

We were married at the Bear and Bison Inn on June 21. From the moment we arrived they were amazing hosts. My friends and family left raving the food! It was nice to have the privacy of the whole inn. Our bartender was great too. Can't wait for an anniversary to come back.
