Abegweit’s guests have shared their experiences with us…
“We loved the house. The picture doesn’t do justice to the fact that this is an early 20th century house and has a great vibe. The location is perfect. The area is quite but a very short walk to downtown Banff.”
Seth – Los Angeles, CA
“What a nice house! It’s exactly same as the photo, or even better. Panorama sea [river] view, you can see the sea from every rooms. The house inside is amazing, luxury decoration. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very big and full equipped. We enjoy the 2 days stay very much.”
Yu – Shanghai, China
“We had a wonderful family reunion here! The location was perfect, right on the river and a number of trails just outside of the door. I went for a jog in the morning and saw elk. My husband rented canoes just a few hundred feet away on the Bow River and saw waterfowl and beavers. The home was spacious and lovely…. The home was beautiful with art on display throughout the home, the beds and pillows were warm and wonderful. There was wonderful character in every corner of this home. The grounds were beautifully tended with historic cabins and the Whyte Museum…. Monte was a wonderful host and took care of burnt out lightbulbs and minor issues within minutes. He left a great information packet, dishwashing supplies and a nice note/gift. Loved every minute I spent here and hope I have another chance to come to Banff to enjoy Abegweit again.”
