About our home

Ski, golf, hike, bike, horseback, whitewater-raft and more near Banff!

Just 3 minutes from Banff Nat'l Park in the Canadian Rockies, Birch Haven is our Canmore vacation home. The exquisite 2 BR/2 BA luxury condo sleeps 7 and is furnished with antique barnwood & log furnishings. The loft features a 23-foot vault & 8-foot walls of glass flanking a cozy riverstone fireplace. Enjoy stunning views whether you're lounging on the leather sofa or soaking in the rooftop hottub! Visit www.birch-haven.com for more photos, guest reviews and more!

Aesthetics and comfort have been given equal emphasis here. Every piece of furnishing is exquisite and custom crafted by artisans, earning Birch Haven a reputation as the area's most artistic loft. It has quickly become one of the most sought-after lofts for discerning honeymooners, families, and those looking for a vacation experience that is a cut above the rest.

Throughout the loft, you will find little touches that differentiate this place from any other. Mood lighting at the flick of a switch. A washer and dryer for your laundry needs. A portable playpen/crib for your little one. An antique barnwood armoire brimming with toys, games and books. Travel guidebooks and brochures to help you make the most of your visit. A surround sound home entertainment system with a library of DVDs and CDs. Optional high-speed internet access.

Spices in the larder, condiments in the fridge and cookbooks in the gourmet kitchen. Even filtered drinking water, making lugging bottled water a vacation ritual of the past. All of which serve to confirm that the owners have made a very personal effort to anticipate and cater to your needs.

We even offer a "library" of pillows to accommodate your bedding preferences. Choose from fluffy down-alternative pillows, firm foam orthopedic ones, or flat kid pillows. Use our feather-bed topper for plush comfort, or remove it for a firmer mattress.

Indeed, no detail has been overlooked and no expense spared!

Banff is Canada's top destination and a mecca for a dizzying array of outdoor activities.

In the midst of it all, but away from the crowds, is Birch Haven. Ideally situated in downtown Canmore, this luxury loft is 3 minutes from the Banff National Park gates and just over an hour from Calgary International Airport.

Our downtown Canmore location means that everything is at your doorstep -- trendy restaurants, supermarkets, health food, sports and video stores, even doctor's offices and ATMs.

Birch Haven is blessed with easy access to 4 national parks. Those marked with * are, in fact, honored as UNESCO World Heritage sites:

24 km / 15 miles to Banff townsite (approx 15 mins)
80 km / 50 miles to Lake Louise and the start of the Icefields Parkway (approx 45 minutes)
60 km / 35 miles to Kootenay National Park* entrance (approx 45 mins)
80 km / 50 miles to Yoho National Park* entrance (approx 1hr 15 mins)
200 km / 125 miles to Jasper National Park* entrance (approx 2 hrs)
26 km / 16 miles to Kananaskis Country (approx 0.5 hrs)

What sets the Canadian Rockies apart from other mountain destinations is how little effort it takes to reach spectacular scenery. Truly stunning vistas that may require hours of hiking in other parks are right on the highway, accessible from the window of your car or tour bus.

Indeed, some of these drives (including the Icefields Parkway drive) are rated as one of the most scenic highways in the world. You can even drive up to Columbia Glacier, the largest non-polar ice-cap in the world, hop on a snowcoach and walk on the face of the glacier!

Summer activities are seemingly endless: world-class golfing, whitewater rafting, fishing, horseback, wildlife-watching, hiking, heli-hiking, ATV expeditions, caving, rock climbing, mountain-biking and more.

Winter is romantic and simply magical. Ice-skate, snowshoe, snowmobile, dog-sled, ice-fish, and ski at Banff/Lake Louise (voted "Best Ski Resort of the World" by the London Daily Telegraph!

We are a family of considerate, experienced home exchangers comprising of 2 adult professionals (and occasionally, a daughter of college age). We are seasoned globe-trotters and have a voracious appetite for learning about other cultures, as well as a love of the performing arts!

We are non-smokers, and will treat your home with the loving care that we treat our own.
