Abegweit on the Bow a unique short stay vacation home in Banff, Alberta

Abegweit on the Bow

B & B / Short Stay Vacation Home

Abegweit on the Bow is a completely unique short stay vacation home located along the Bow River in Banff! This beautiful historic house has several upgrades, including four bedrooms and all the comforts of home. Abegweit on the Bow is the perfect location for vacations or family reunions.

*Note: Abegweit rents as an entire house only, individual room rentals are not available. Wedding receptions and ceremonies are not permitted in Abegweit.

The house is spectacular. It is a part of a museum. One feels like being in a movie. Very clean. Had every amenity we thought of (including dish washer, washing machines, dryer, games …) As for location, cannot think of a better location in Banff. The communication with the host was easy and super efficient.   Vida – Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

“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, California, USA
