We loved our short stay at the Bear & Bison, the service and welcoming hospitality recieved was impecible. The decor is beautifully themed and you can't beat the view of the mountains. Anyone looking for quality should definitely visit this Inn, we highly recommend it!

We had the experience of a lifetime at A Bear & Bison. We held our wedding there in January, 2014 and it was truly magical. During the planning stages, Lonny always time to help me with planning the event and choices of service providers. We had very little involvement with Fiona until the day of the wedding. Wow, what a...

Canmore has been my favorite destination for years and The Bear and Bison Inn is my absolute favorite place to find the comforts of home and a warm, inviting place to stay!

This B and B was OK, but not what we were lead to believe on the website. It is on a main road with a sidewalk right in front. The view on the website is taken from across the street with a berm obstructing the roadway making it look like you are in the wilderness...a bit cheeky in my option....

I have stayed in the Bed and Breakfast twice, each for a long weekend with a group of colleagues. Both times the service was impeccable, the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was totally relaxed. The rooms are very romantic and unbelievable comfortable. Having stayed upstairs and downstairs, I can recommend staying downstairs as it is quite a bit quieter....

We weren't sure we would be able to squeeze in the time away during a busy year, but we are so glad we did.
