After months of being confined in the cold and with limited travel, you may be thinking the only way you’ll ever cure that wanderlust is to wait it out until we’re able to hop on a plane again. Well, we’re here to brighten your day and remind you otherwise! Alberta is home to some of the most beautiful and scenic locations in the world (remember the Rocky Mountains?!), and we’re lucky to have some pretty amazing places to stay at too.
While there are gems all over the province, one of our favourite places to stay and explore is right in the heart of Canmore! Only a short 45-minute drive from Calgary, Spring Creek is the perfect place for a getaway right in our own backyard.
Don’t let its proximity to the city fool you. While the rentals at Spring Creek Vacations offer all the modern comforts you would find at home, including a kitchen, insuite laundry, space to work, and tons of room for yourself and your family, these luxurious rentals have plenty of added amenities to remind you that you’re (finally!) not at your own home.
Some of our favourite things about this spot include incredible mountain views, complimentary ski lockers, access to the community fire pit, an outdoor hot tub, an exercise room, and the inner courtyards that connect to Spring Creek’s extensive trail systems. Oh, and did we mention full housekeeping can be arranged?
When it comes to longer stays in Canmore, Spring Creek is making a name for itself as a top choice for renters. But they’ve got us covered for short-term stays as well! The Malcolm Hotel Canmore, located right in Spring Creek offers all the benefits of the neighborhood, including its easy access to Canmore’s shops, galleries, restaurants and mountain attractions- but with the hotel vibe for shorter stays. This includes an onsite concierge to help plan your next mountain adventure and easy access to their three restaurants; Stirling Grill, Stirling Lounge, and the Creekside Patio (open in the summer).
But let’s face it, nothing says rest and relaxation quite like a steamy soak or a refreshing dip. And lucky for guests, The Malcolm Hotel Canmore offers two hot tubs and an outdoor pool all with panoramic mountain views… Open all year round!
So, whether you’re looking to escape the city for a couple weeks or a couple days, Spring Creek Vacations and The Malcolm Hotel Canmore have something for everyone. The perfect mixture of outdoor and indoor luxury- these two are definitely worth adding to your travel bucket list.
