About this apartment

Located at the foot of Tunnel Mountain in Banff, 5 minutes walk from downtown, the Bow river and the Banff Center. The Banff Bear B&B Suite is the ideal private retreat after a full day of sightseeing, hiking, or skiing, or it can be your quiet hideaway where you can relax, and have some down time.


Sit out on the private deck, like a local, and soak up the glorious surroundings with views of Mount Norquay and Cascade Mountain. On occasion watch the deer and elk that wander the town site and graze on the lawn.



The suite has it`s own private entrance so that you are provided with complete privacy. The suite is yours to use throughout the day.



We meet you on arrival and show you the accommodation and, as we just live upstairs, we are available if you have any questions, or need anything. We try and touch base with you daily, as you come and go, to ensure that you have everything that you need.



The Banff Bear B&B suite has a cozy sitting area which offers cable TV and Netflix (on a 40 inch LCD screen) and wireless Internet. There is a dining area and a kitchenette with bar fridge / freezer, microwave, toaster and the usual drink making facilities, with complimentary tea & coffee. So you can make yourselves at home and enjoy a night in with a glass of wine and a ready meal.



In accordance with the Banff accommodation permit there is no stove, however, there is a CrockPot slow cooker / food warmer to enable you to cook basic meals.



To comply with the bed and breakfast license some breakfast supplies will be provided.



Each of the light and airy bedrooms has a queen size bed, a closet and an ensuite bathroom with shower.

    Beautiful Banff Bear

    The Banff Bear was sparkling clean and totally lived up to its description. We were minutes (walking distance) from downtown Banff and all of the fun and food that it had to offer. Thanks for a wonderful 2 nights!

    Wonderful stay! Perfect all around!

    I can’t say enough about Richard and Allison! My friends and I were truly sad to leave! Their home is absolute perfection. Beautifully clean and well kept. They were consummate hosts and gave us a thorough introduction and detailed tips about Banff. Some of their special suggestions saved us!! Their place is barely a 5 minute walk to the main street in the adorable downtown area. They even checked in on us the second night to see how we were getting on. I absolutely recommend the Banff Bear Bed and Breakfast! 10/10!!

    Excellent Choice

    Richard and Alison provided a warm welcome and orientation. They had lots of great recommendations. They checked on us during the stay to see how things were going and if we needed anything. The place was perfect for 2 couples. Very nice and accommodating and a great location. We will definitely be back. Thank you Richard and Alison!

    A true Home Away from Home

    This is a delightful property set in the quiet residential part of Banff yet within easy walking distance of the town centre. The owners are fastidious in presenting a clean and fault free accommodation and the kitchenette equipment was adequate to prepare breakfast - including poached eggs or omelettes in special microwaveable containers. The presence of the owners upstairs was reassuring but never intrusive and they were clearly very committed to delivering a relaxing vacation to their guests. The Banff area has much to attract visitors - especially those keen on outdoor pursuits. The lakes and mountains are stunning and we would be very happy to return to this B&B in the future.

    Perfect location, great accommodations, friendly hosts!

    This was a perfect find for what we were looking for. We shared the unit with another couple (4 adults total) and had plenty of room for a 4-night stay. The small kitchen was well equipped for light meals and snacks which was perfect given the numerous eating options all within walking distance. Beds were conforatable and everything was very clean. Breakfast food was provided and our hosts even let us barrow their bear spray while we were in town. The living space provided a great little spot to sit and visit in the evenings or over breakfast, but to be honest we were so tired from long days of exploring that we didn’t use the space that much. I would happily come back to this place again! (Trip from July 19-23, 2018)

    Wonderful accommodations with personal service

    The accommodations were most comfortable. The amenities were plentiful. The owner was nice enough to provide us with starters of food and beverage. The owner lives upstairs and was always eager to provide whatever we needed. I would highly recommend this place. Very centrally located. It would be helpful to have a TV station listing as the "guide" did not work. Otherwise, we were very happy with our stay.

    Best VRBO I have ever stayed in

    Property is immaculate and exactly as described. Great layout and everything you need for comfort. Easy walking into town so great location. Parking on property so we just left car and walked for dinners to avoid parking in town Property owners were AMAZING. We took a tumble hiking in the mud and asked for a bucket to wash some things in the yard. They brought a bucket, laundry soap and a drying rack. So awesome. Would highly recommend to everyone

    Fantastic B&B!

    Our experience was amazing! On day one we were pleasantly surprised at the beautiful home and how well-kept and clean it is. The second surprise was the breakfast supplies provided and how helpful the host was. Everything is within walking distance if you’d like to shop or have a bite to eat.. Awesome time!
