Canadian Artisans B&B
Ranked #7 of 32 Canmore B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 October 2017

After visiting (and reviewing) in 2014 we knew when returning to Canmore exactly where we wanted to stay. As before Bob and Valerie made us very welcome and remembered us from our previous visit; and gave us good advice on what to do in the area when the weather turned snowy.
We chose not to take breakfast here in order to have more freedom in seeing the amazing sights in the nearby Banff National Park, which were busy due to the extra visitors with Canada's 150th anniversary. Instead we took advantage of the location being close to the town centre and had some great breakfasts in town.
Although close to the social centre of town the street is quiet; and away from the rail line which runs through the valley; so the night-time freight trains don't wake guests.
We can't recommend staying here enough, it's better than my ability to describe how good staying here is.

So many words to describe our stay! Comfortable-an amazing bed in the Treehouse Suite, the steam shower is soothing after a long day of hiking along with the plush robes. Having a full refrigerator was perfect and provided flexibility for breakfast-YUMMY. Calming and quiet. Located at the forest edge and you may be lucky enough to see an elk as we did!
Valerie and Bob are very pleasant and provide guidance on activities and restaurants. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the Canadian Artisans B&B!

There is a lot to like about this place. Canmore is far quieter than Banff. The location of this B&B is just a few blocks from the town shops and restaurants, but also backs up to the river and walking trails. The room is beautifully furnished, with a comfortable bed, 2-person hot tub, unlimited DVDs, homemade muffins, fresh fruit, tea, coffee, yogurt, bread, etc. Bob & Val are friendly and gentle hosts who provided excellent recommendations on what to see and do in the area. We especially appreciated the advice to visit Kananaskis country and avoid the crowds around Banff on a busy summer Saturday.

I can't have imagined a better stay. As someone who has chemical sensitivities I booked looking for a place that could work around that. Not only did I find that but also a truly lovely place to stay. Quiet and peaceful, a wonderful space with such character, everything we needed and wanted. The weather has been HOT but there are very shady places to be and, even without air condition, the Tree House was very comfortable with multiple windows to open and a quiet tower fan. Valerie and Bob have been very personable, helpful and respectful of our space. We would stay again in a heartbeat and recommend it to any couple coming to Canmore area.

Room Tip: Not a hotel but far superior.

This is the best place to stay. Canmore is 20 minutes from Banff. You can walk everywhere to eat or shop. Banff is up the road and in Canmore you do not have the tourist traffic or people. Valerie and Bob are fabulous hosts. They cannot do enough for you. They are a wealth of information. You also have a choice but to do breakfast and get your room I did. The store where you can buy breakfast and you have a fridge raider in your room is perfect
Awesome awesome awesome!!!
