At Ballyrock Home our goal is to be the best B&B in Canmore by providing our guests with all the comforts of home as they experience the many interesting activities and attractions in Banff, Lake Louise and Kananaskis.  While staying in one of our comfortable bedroom suites, guests are encouraged to enjoy our attractive living areas and fully equipped kitchen. Roger is your host. He will get you started with a wholesome breakfast to fuel each day of your visit to this mountain paradise.

Ballyrock Home takes its name from the term bally, meaning place, and the majestic mountains (rocks) that surround us. It is Jennie and Roger's mountain "place". The decor creates an elegant mix of city and country living.  The furnishings and accessories have been accumulated during our travels throughout North America over five decades.  They reflect Jennie's Irish roots and unique style and tell the story of our lives together.

Since opening our Canmore bed and breakfast in October 2017 we have served more than 80 guest groups from around the world on their visits to the Canadian Rockies. We are grateful that so many have provided very positive reviews and recommended us highly to other guests.

Great dining, drinking and shopping in classy downtown Canmore


Ballyrock Home is located in a quiet residential area in convenient walking distance of downtown Canmore.  Guests can walk through the woods or take a short drive to the Canmore Nordic Centre, Quarry Lake, Millennial Park and other local venues.  We are five minutes from a stop on the Roam bus network serving Canmore and Banff and about 2 km from the Legacy bike trail to Banff National Park.

Bambi, our little deer, was born at in the forest behind Ballyrock Home



Our property backs onto a municipal reserve which is part of a wildlife corridor,  The "garden room" projects guests into the garden and the wooded area behind where a family of deer pass through almost daily.  A herd of elk pass roam the neighborhood from time to time and every now and then a bear or two.  Birds and squirrels are constant companions.
