Wow! Your condo is fabulous. I am taking home many ideas to furnish our own condo up. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We will have to come back to enjoy the surroundings longer and do more things. Thank you so much for the use of your fabulous condo.

Carol and Sara S. - Penticton, British Columbia

Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful, well-appointed mountain retreat.

We appreciated the thoughtful little touches which we did not have in the other unit below (which we also rented).

It helps in making a big birthday special.

The Kuhuels - Edmonton, Alberta

Thank you so much for letting us rent your beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountain home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and especially appreciate all the amenities (covered parking!, washer/dryer, DVD player etc).

Your home is beautifully appointed and perfect for a mountain setting. Clearly a lot of love and labor went into the finishings of the condo.

We hope to make Banff/Canmore our annual spring break destination.

Erin, Lauren, Carol, Brian -- Dallas, Texas

The whole family had a great time in Canmore.

We explored the area around Highway 40, 792 and 1A, and enjoyed the views immensely.

We went skiing in Sunshine Village and had a great time. The kids enjoyed the snow at Sunshine Village and the spring weather in Canmore.

The condo was great. We enjoyed the personal touches.

We also enjoyed dog sledding. Can't wait to come back for a summer visit.

The Brashers - Houston, Texas

Your home here in Canmore is wonderful. Thank you so much forallowing us to stay here.

We skied Lake Louise and Sunshine while we were here and truly enjoyed it. Thank you.

Jenny and Larry S. - Toronto, Canada
Corey S. - Melbourne, Australia

Our family had a great time skiing at Sunshine and Lake Louise.

We enjoyed the local brew and shopping on Main Street. The hot springs at Banff and Radium eased our sore muscles.

Your condo was a real treat and we hope to be back for another spring break. Thanks!

Elizabeth, Madeleine, Josie, Gordon and Eva F. - Edmonton, Canada

We enjoyed your beautiful condo immensely - what incredible taste and aesthetic harmony they attest to!

We hope to come back many times in the future.

Thank you,
Sonia and Dale

We had a great time here. This is our 3rd week of a 4 month vacation.

This condo is my favorite place that we have stayed. It is so comfortable.

I had the bedroom/loft upstairs. The bed was so cozy! I wish that was my bed at home!

I also love the huge window in the living room. The patio was nice too, like everything else.

We have had a fantastic time here. Even my dad liked it!

Kensie, Kyler, Korey, Bill B. and Michelle K.

We had a very comfortable week and really appreciated your fine artistic expression!

You thought of everything to make our stay convenient and comfortable.

We will definitely return to this magnificent part of the world and we are very grateful for the use of your fine Canmore retreat.

Love and blessings,

Victoria and Ash R. - Morrison, Colorado

Very comfortable. Unique and innovative decor.

Easy access to surrounding beauty of scenic area - Banff and Lake Louise.

The Luces - Washington State and California

This has been the perfect spot for our 1st weekend in the Rockies since 1998.

We had nearly forgotten how fantastic the scenery was!

Thank you for the loan of your lovely home. We have been very comfortable here.

Canada is definitely our favorite place in the world - the people are so helpful and friendly, it makes us depressed to go back home.

Geoff and Jan - Suffolk, England

As mentioned before by others, you have a very lovely, unique and very relaxing place here in Canmore.

Although as much as I love your place, the trails around town were what I came for and fell in love. Biked my a-- off.

Loved it, especially the hot-tub.

So from my wife and I, and our friends Dwayne and Michelle, we wish everyone else will have as sweet a time as we did.

Greetings from Thunder Bay, Ontario - Valerie and Greg J.

What a fabulous holiday!!

Spectacular scenery, super accommodation and a remarkably well-equipped kitchen.

On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed this 5 star accommodation.

Happy New Year!

Brenda and Wendy T., Al C., Rosetta A. - Kitimat, British Columbia, and Vancouver, British Columbia


The place is lovely and comfortable, and we really enjoyed our stay...

After hiking and being out and about all day, it sure was wonderful to soak up the exquisite mountain scenery.

Canmore is full of friendly people, and possibly the town is nicer than Banff, which, of course, is a lot more commercialized.

Thanks again. It will be hard back to return to Chicago in the wee A.M.

Cathy and Tim - Chicago, Illinois

We had a very enjoyable time here at your wonderful place. Beautiful views, comfortable beds and cozy living area.

You have put a lot of thought into the decor and made us feel at home.

Thank you and maybe someday we will see you again.

Matt, Wendy, Brad and Brenda M.

Thank you for having us at such a wonderful and unique place.

As mentioned many times before in this Guest Book, the furniture truly makes the place and creates a true Western Canadian atmosphere.

Our departure from Birch Haven marks the end of a 2-week honeymoon in the Canmore and Banff area.

This was a great place to have it conclude.

Thanks for everything,
Kyle and Lindsay S. - Toronto, Ontario

Just wanted to say we had a great time in Canmore, the weather was beautiful and your condo was gorgeous!

We really enjoyed some of the board games you had. Our little girl was especially fond of the "Arthur" board game and we all enjoyed the hot tub!


JJ Black - Canada

We had a wonderful time in your beautiful home.

This is our fifth time vacationing in Canmore. We love it here.

The mountains are exquisite and the people are warm, friendly and very helpful to visitors.

Of course Banff and Lake Louise are must-sees, but if you can, take time to explore Kananaskis Country.

This untouched area is a rare treat for outdoor lovers. We'll be back!

Michael and Doug C. - Washington, DC

We had a great time in Canmore this weekend.

The mountains are so beautiful and the town is so cute and friendly. We had a great time strolling and having coffee.

The outdoor hot-tub was very relaxing and warm. We loved looking up at the stars.

Every November, the four of us go for an adult weekend getaway and the Birch Haven was the perfect place for us this year.

We LOVE what you have done with the condo. It's awesome that it reflects the Rockies and Canmore. Great job!!!

Thanks again for everything. We will be back!!

Teressa and Danen G, Sue and Gord J - Calgary, Alberta

Dave and Loni's "Golf Your A-- Off Tour 2004" was a huge success! This was our second time here for our annual golf holiday.

I love this condo and Canmore is great. Great friends, great golf and great times!

We'll be back! Thanks for everything.

Lorainne C, Carole, Ian and Mr Wilson - Edmonton, Alberta

Thank you so much for the lovely stay. It truly came to feel like home, but better!

The skiing was awesome for this time of year and the people are so friendly.

We love Canmore and that's why we chose it for our honeymoon.

Greg and Angele S.

We finally made it to Banff. We were to stay here at your condo last year at this time, but due to an emergency we had to postpone our trip.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in allowing us to do so.

We enjoyed all 3 ski resorts and a dog sled ride while we were here.

Your condo is fabulous and I love the decor. We also enjoyed several family games of "Compatability". What a fun game. We loved our time in Banff.

Thank you,
Cindy, Dan, Bob and Joe M. - Peoria, Illinois

Thank you very much for letting us rent your lovely condo in the mountains.

The place is exquisitely decorated and every want has been anticipated.

We'll be back for another off-season getaway from the big city!

Joan, Reg and Kevin M, and Dorlisa L. - Calgary, Alberta

We loved Canmore and are glad we chose this spot over Banff.

The highlight of our outdoor adventures was a hike to the fabulous Yoho lake.

A tip a local gave us was to drive the 1A instead of 1, and we saw lots of wildlife on 1A.

We enjoyed the bike trails along the river in Canmore and rafting the Kicking Horse.

This was a great base camp. Thanks!

Jim and Kim Y. - Atlanta, Georgia

Wow! Our stay here has been an amazing experience! We have felt at home and yet truly pampered by the luxuries of this condo.

We appreciated the conveniences of Safeway and access to downtown Canmore!

We were in heaven as we explored the area...

Johnston Canyon, Radium Hot Springs, Banff, Bow Valley River, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake...

Emerald Lake canoeing, rafting on the Kicking Horse, spotting elk, grizzly bears (2!), mountain goats and big-horned sheep...

... and taking in the breathtaking mountain views! Memories :-)

Thank you!
