When we started out on Karlynn & Mike’s Excellent Adventure, you might have noticed that we stopped on in Canmore, Alberta for a couple of days. Tourism Canmore had asked me if I would like to come out and visit them and see what there is to do in Canmore with the kids. The answer to that, of course, was a resounding yes!  As much as we travel abroad, there is honestly no place like home when it comes down to it. Our amazing Rocky Mountains hold a place near and dear to my heart that can’t be replaced. I love promoting this beautiful province of mine!

Since we were only homethree short weeks between Arizona and leaving for Europe, I managed to squeeze in a trip to Canmore at the beginning of our trip. We dropped off Root Beer at my sister’s house in Airdrie for his two month visit with his dog cousin Zoe and continued on to Canmore to start our journey.

We were hosted by the Grande Rockies Resort, somewhere that I had never stayed before. It’s a gorgeous place with fantastic views of the mountains. We had the one bedroom suite, which I loved thanks to the full kitchen!

Isn’t this fantastic?

The couch converted to a bed to the kids and the bedroom was perfect for Mike and I. The bed was extremely comfortable.

The bathroom was awesome and for the first time, I didn’t have to argue with the kids about taking showers. See that shower?

It had every gadget that a child (or adult) would ever want to play with. Steam, massaging jets and a radio.

My kids have never been so clean. Apparently all I need at home is a shower radio, who knew? As soon as we are home, I’ll be buying one!

Here’s the view from the kitchen. There was plenty of space, which was good since we travelled with four large suitcases.

Yes, that’s my son out on the balcony and speaking of which, there is a lovely BBQ out there for you to use as well and a couple of chairs with a table.

All in all, the resort is a fabulous place to stay with kids. A kitchenette is often one of the most important things that I want in a hotel room, we do get tired of eating out all of the time. The pool area was closed when we were there sadly, so I can’t share any pictures of that, but it appears to be a very family friendly and fun place.

I’d like to thank Tourism Canmore for having me out, it’s always a pleasure to help promote this amazing province of mine! Make sure to check out their website to learn more about Canmore!
