We stayed here last year to check it out as a possible wedding location. They offered a night and breakfast at half price since we were considering the Inn. We immediately knew after our stay that this was the place to get married! The views, atmosphere and rooms made this a perfect wedding venue. The rooms are beautiful, rustic, and...

We attended a wedding in April 2017. We came a day early and our first morning they forgot to bring us the breakfast that was included. We were there for a wedding with the understanding that they would decorate for the wedding. They did not, guests wound up decorating the tables. This service was paid for and not fulfilled. The...

My husband and I stayed here for four days. We had a great time but had a few things to say - great place, great view but weird inside. This is a mountain lodge made of logs, inside the rooms are Asian themed and there is a huge jacuzzi in the room with you. The room we rented really needed...

My husband and I had the pleasure of renting out this adorable bed and breakfast May 1st to board our immediate family for our small wedding. Leah was very friendly and casual and made planning our wedding dinner and reception so easy! The location is on the corner of the street with a great view of the three sisters peaks...

My husband and I decided to have our wedding at The Bear and Bison after a wonderful initial visit and stay, offered by the Inn, many months earlier. We were really attracted to the idea that we could have the majority of our guests stay with us at the Inn (it was a smaller wedding) and being outdoors. Leah made...

This is a lovely Inn, on the outskirts of Canmore town proper. The interior has a gorgeous stairway with log railings, which give it a log home feel and rustic furniture. Room 3 is they're Honeymoon Suite. It's lovely with the jet tub, although, the tub doesn't comfortably accommodate 2 normal size people. For $250/ night for this room, I...

One of the best places I have ever stayed at! My husband & I stayed here three nights last week for our honeymoon and we have zero complaints. Neither one of us have ever had breakfast like they do at the Bear & Bison! It was awesome waking up to a three course breakfast. First was either oatmeal or a...

Great wedding venue: excellent food, especially breakfast and picnic basket lunches. Bride and groom wanted food from many varied locations they had lived, and B&B came through! We also needed a babysitter at short notice (same day) and owner arranged this. Gourmet breakfasts: fruit smoothies and watermelon, mint and feta fruit salad came prior to huevos rancheros; different menu the...

We spent a night here on March 9th, very clean, well put together place. The owner is very friendly and caters to the needs of his guests. They upgraded is for free to the honeymoon room. Breakfast was great, brought right into the room. We will return for sure. I recommend a stay here to anyone.
