Our guests come from around the world to share the beauty of the majestic Canadian Rockies.  In summer and winter they come to experience the many activities and attractions which are available in Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Kananaskis Country.   When they stay at Ballyrock Home B&B we try to offer a home away from home.  Guests enjoy a clean, spacious private bedroom suite and are welcome to make full use of the kitchen and other attractive common areas of the home and the external property.  We provide a wholesome breakfast and a little conversation to start each day.  After a full day of hiking, biking, skiing, golfing, touring or eventing our guests can return to all the comforts of home.  We do our best to make each stay a pleasant and memorable one.

We encourage our guests to provide their feedback to help us get better and grow.  Their generous responses come in various formats - on Facebook and Twitter, through Airbnb and my email. We will try to make each review available here on the website as well.  They are arranged below in reverse chronological order (latest first) in columns for the Mountain View suite on the left and the Garden View suite on the right.  We hope to have the opportunity to host you here soon.  This is what other guests have told us so far .........

We loved staying in Roger's beautiful home on our recent trip to Canmore! He could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Everything was super comfortable and immaculate. Roger treated us to special breakfasts each morning, and had great advice on local restaurants and ski options. He is an excellent host, and made our trip warm and memorable.

Roger is a great host who is very knowledgeable about what to see & do in the area. His home was very clean and breakfast was great. His home is ideally located and is both a close walk to hiking trails and downtown.

    Brian - Burlington, ON

Roger's hospitality and home exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful time sitting by the wood burning fireplace and our bedroom suite felt just like home...but better! We will definitely come back to Roger's place as he was friendly, helpful and generous.

Roger’s is by far the very best place I ever been through AirBnB. His house is not only amazing but also himself. His kindness is (priceless).  What a place guys. You won’t regret for sure. Amazing house full of facilities in the middle of the Rockies. I won’t ever forget such experience. Roger did for us a very good breakfast every morning and we would have nice talks while having it and also he always gave us privacy.

We loved staying at Roger's place. We were there for 3 nights . It has an excellent location if you want to explore Canmore and Banff. There are lots of XC ski trails close by and also within short drive in Banff and around Lake Louise. It is a perfect home base for your winter and summer adventures. We loved our upstairs room. It was roomy, cute and cozy. Have to also mention the delicious breakfasts each morning. Made my birthday weekend very special. Would definitely stay there again.

We had such a great stay with Roger! He is warm, welcoming and just an all around great host. He made us breakfast and ensured we could plug our car in overnight (it was very cold). The room was spacious and full of thoughtful details. It was especially nice to come back to such a comfortable abode after a day in the mountain. We look forward to staying with him again!

Thouroughly enjoyed our stay in the Mountain View room at the Ballyrock B&B. Roger was incredibly kind and went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed. Lovely home and wonderful location. Would stay again!

    Kara - Edmonton, AB

Roger’s wood house is so nice, and he is very good too, every morning he would very happy to prepare nutritive breakfast to us. The House’s inner decoration is amazing, when you live there you will feel like live in your own home. The house’s location is not far away from the town of Banff, and the sun shine skiing village. We are very fortunate to live in this awosome Mountain View wood house.

    Miao - Saskatoon, SK

We were Rogers first guests. We were pleasantly surprised by Roger's beautiful mountain house at the stunning location in Canmore. We were staying in the Mountain View room at the upper floor. It was very cozy decorated, specious, and well equipped. Roger is a very friendly host and he advised us on several activities/hikes/trips in the surroundings. Breakfast was good and healthy. Banff National Park and Kananaskis are easily accessible from the Ballyrock Mountain View House. This place is very recommendable. Thank you Roger for sharing your family mountain home with us.

    Suze - Oudehaske, NL

We loved staying with Roger and had a great stay at his home. The room was comfortable and breakfast was a nice touch. Roger was thoughtful and kind - we would definitely return next time we're in Canmore.

    Danny - Salt lake City, UT

Our stay with Roger was perfect! The checkin was seamless. Parking was right in front of the house. Roger greeted us and showed us around and explained everything very well. The house is so beautiful. You immediately feel like you are home. There are countless lovely details around in the house and you could already spent a day in the house looking through all the books about Ireland & co. The common rooms are big and cozy (& the kitchen is very well equipped). Breakfast was included and very great. Roger always made sure that we have everything we need. He also had good recommendations for trip planning. All in all, we were more than satisfied and would definitely recommend it and come again ourselves :)

    Kathi - Leipzig, DE

Roger’s place is a must-stay if you are in Canmore area or even Banff if you don’t mind the 30ish minute drive. The house is very beautifully decorated to every detail; the Canmore town is less touristic and yet more cozy and easy to get around; the host, Riger himself is very passionate, very informative, very willing to share. My parents are I are just amazed how much work he and his family must have put into this house. It’s been my best stay of Airbnb. Check it out guys!

Roger is a gracious and generous host. The home is clean and the included breakfasts were a great start to busy days exploring Banff national park. Wonderful backdrop for a winter vacation. Will try to return in the future!

    Adam - Kingston, ON

Roger was a fantastic host and was extremely prepared from the moment we got there. He made sure we had our own space to relax in, he cooked great breakfast every morning, and always asked how our previous days went and what we were doing. Overall, a tremendous host and great find!

    Sean - Minneapolis, MN

Ballyrock Home was truly a beautiful place in a beautiful location and Roger made it feel like home. He really spent a lot of time and effort into making sure we had a wonderful experience. The house is clean, beautiful, and spacious. Each morning was started out perfectly with a delicious homemade breakfast and pleasant conversation. Roger was attentive to all our needs and made our stay top-notch! We would recommend this location in a heartbeat!
