I was invited to stay at the inn for my cousin's wedding, we were there for 2 nights, and I've never been as comfortable in any other hotel. The room was very inviting, with plenty of room to spare. Everything was immaculate, and every effort was made to make sure all the guests needs were met. I thoroughly enjoyed the...

We wanted a small wedding with just immediate family, and our research led us to A Bear and Bison Inn. We had just immediate family (total of 12 people), and the inn was more than spacious enough for everybody. The entire time we were there, we felt that Lonny and Fiona's top priority was our enjoyment and happiness, we never...

Thanks for choosing to have your wedding with us! We know there are many choices in the Banff and Canmore wedding market.

This place looks charming outside and inviting upon entering - log purpose-built b & b, nicely decorated. Unfortunately the lack of attention to detail made for a less-than-expected visit. The bedroom was very crowded with the tub/shower in the corner of the bedroom, no reading light or room to put one beside the small couch in the room and no...

Each room in this inn is your own little 'getaway' with a delightful old cottage feel. It is truly perfect for a romantic getaway with a wonderfully comfortable bed, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. The food that they serve is outstanding and perhaps you will be fortunate enough to enjoy the delectable scones. The inn is located away from the main...
