We were a group of four couples who thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was the perfect setup, offering community as well as privacy, with four en suite bedrooms that were spacious and comfortable. The living room provided a gathering space, and the full kitchen and dining table allowed us to do some cooking and dining in as well as going out a couple of times. The central location is superb—everything is walkable. It's just a couple of blocks to downtown Banff, yet very quiet. The free shuttle to the ski resorts is only a block away, as is the trail network along the river. We were even able to park our rental cars out back, much appreciated.
A few recommendations for our hosts:
* The washer and dryer were a bonus, but we assumed the house didn't have them, as we didn't see them mentioned on the listing. Some people commented they could have packed a little lighter had they known.
* Would be great to have a coffee grinder in the otherwise well-appointed kitchen. We bought whole bean coffee, but we had to go get ground instead.
* A coffee table in the living room would be welcome. We enjoyed gathering there to sit, but we had nowhere to set our glasses and mugs.
* And finally, it would be super to provide a bundle of firewood and some matches for the delightful wood-burning fireplace in the living room.
Would definitely return. It's an ideal spot for a larger family or group of friends. Couldn't have been more pleased.
