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 .........

A lovely property. Everything you could ever need, and more. Roger was a very considerate host and nothing was too much trouble for him.

   David - London, UK

Our stay at Roger's place was lovely. This home is comfortable and clean. We especially enjoyed the sitting room with it's expansive windows on a cold and snowy day. Roger is a perfect host with just the right amount of attention, he prepared a delicious home cooked breakfast that kept us going for our site-seeing until mid afternoon. I recommend Roger's place as home base for site seeing in Banff and Lake Louise.

   Julie - Portland, OR

This is a gorgeous house set in a nice neighborhood of Canmore. There's a lovely garden, and several dining areas. We had the use of the entire second floor which is a very large and beautiful, highceilinged room with it's own jacuzzi bathtub. The kitchen is fully equiped, and stocked with mineral water, coffee and tea, cold drinks, etc. Roger was a very generous and gracious host, flexible and sensitive, attentive to our dietary needs and morning schedule. For the rest of day he gave us our privacy and we had the run of the ground floor. The location is a few minutes drive to downtown Canmore, and there's a lovely walking path leading down to the river where the local's stroll with their children and dogs. In summary, this is definitely the most beautiful Airbnb house we've stayed in, and we will definitely recommend it to friends and family coming to tour Banff national park.

   Jeremy - Kfar Hess, IL

Wonderful place, great rooms, extraordinary breakfast, very sympathetic and helpful host, we can only recommend this accommodation. Beautifully located near the forest and the mountains, not in the centre of Canmore. Very quiet.

   Eva - Ulm, DE

We had a very comfortable stay in the upstairs Mountain View room. The room itself is very spacious, clean, and has plenty of thoughtful touches — local soaps and shampoos, extra wool blankets, games, books, etc. The soaking tub is also very nice to relax in. There were no other guests staying at the time so we had all of the common spaces privately to ourselves as Roger lives in the basement level. He served us a generous homemade breakfast every morning which were always fresh and delicious and more than we could eat. We definitely recommend staying here!

   Stephanie - Vancouver, WA

One of the best places we stayed at in Canada. We highly recommend this place.

   Katharina - Gartringen, DE

Great experience from daily healthy breakfasts to darling furnishings. Would totally recommend!

   Greg - Morton, IL

Wonderful place . Will def stay here again.

   Bona - Edmonton, AB

Perfection! Roger and his stunning home are now the benchmark for future vacation stays! The house is exquisite. Immaculate, decorated beautifully, stocked with all amenities AND he made fantastic breakfasts each morning set up overlooking the garden. Roger prepared, served and then sat down each morning to chat and share his wisdom, experiences and stories with us. He provided us with hiking tips that were spot on! We can’t say enough about our stay. The moment we left, we missed him and his incredible home.

   Karen - Toronto, ON

Roger is a perfect host at his beautiful mountain home, Ballyrock, in Canmore. Everything was neat and clean and beautifully decorated. His breakfasts were delicious! Roger responded very quickly to our every communication. He was so eager to work breakfast around our busy sightseeing schedule and offered helpful suggestions. The location in Canmore is perfect for proximity not only to Banff and its surroundings, but also to all the wonderful restaurants in Canmore. Most of all, his caring spirit and openness to his guests made our visit much more than a typical B&B experience. We truly felt we were guests in his family home.

   Kirby - Broken Arrow, OK

Rogers home is beautiful decorated, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! Nice surrounding, warm welcome and conversation. We felt like home. Highly recommended!

   Gabriele - Bornheim, DE

Our stay at Roger's home was very enjoyable. Roger is a terrific host - very friendly, warm, and welcoming. Each morning Roger served us a wonderful breakfast. The location is great, close to Banff. Highly recommend!

   Shabbir - Fort Worth, TX

We decided to make Canmore our base for touring and hiking in Banf National Park. Roger’s house was a perfect answer to our needs. The facilities were great with access to the kitchen and BBQ as required. A different cooked breakfast most morning’s was rather unexpected bonus. The upstairs suite was huge with plenty of room to relax on the bedroom balcony or on the spacious sofa - that is unless we wanted to chill in the large sitting room (with tv) or in the garden room! Roger is a wonderful, unassuming host who could not do enough for us. Go raibh míle maith agat. (A thousand thanks).

   Kevin - Waterford, IE

Roger’s BnB exceeded our every expectation. Clean doesn’t serve descriptive justice to his entire home. Breakfast, conversation and general interactions with Roger were lovely. When we return to Canmore (our favorite), we will certainly stay here again.

   Galen - Morristown, TN

Everything about Roger’s place was absolutely wonderful. We had the best of time, amazing breakfasts, large space, all the amenities to feel at home, and a lot of outdoor space. We loved every second of our stay and cannot wait to visit again. We will definitely be staying with Roger during our next visit to Canmore. Thanks again Roger!

   Karyne - Edmonton, AB

밴프여행 오는 분들께 강력히 추천합니다. 밴프보다 아름다운 주위와 친절한 host, 밴프에 쉽게 왔다갔다 수있는 거리에 있읍니다. 특히 제공해주는 아침은 잊을 없어요! 정말 캐나다 신사임.

   Keun Ho - Kor

My husband and I came to Canmore for a couple days to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were so pleased with our stay at Rogers place. The house was beautifully decorated and relaxing. We stayed in the mountain view room and it had a great view for sure! Roger was quick to answer in all our communication back and forth and even provided breakfast that fit my dietary restrictions as I recently found out I am egg and dairy free. What a nice surprise! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

   Kathryn - Guelph, ON

Roger went above and beyond and we can’t express our gratitude enough. From homemade breakfast chats and local tips to providing a serene escape, this was amazing. Five stars for an incredible stay in an outstanding area. Easy to get to Banff and beyond from here and highly recommend.

   Becca - Thousand Oaks, CA

The space is amazing with incredible views and so many interesting touches with decor. Many different spaces afford special areas of retreat. Make sure to enjoy his special collection of music.

   Frank - Calgary, AB

We had an incredible stay at Rogers home. Roger made our stay as conformable as possible and provided a delicious breakfast. Roger gave some useful tips and suggestions about things to do in the area. If you want to stay in Canmore or close to Banff, don't hesitate to book!

   Stef - Ghent, BE

This was the first time using airbnb and we couldn't have been happier. Roger's home was very comfortable and very nicely appointed located on a quiet cut de sac. . Roger was as gracious a host as you could hope for. Very pleasant and extremely accommodating. Would not hesitate to recommended this airbnb for anyone contemplating a stay in Canmore or Banff area. Thank you Roger for a wonderful stay.

   Danny - Calgary, AB

Great location close to Nordic Centre and to downtown Canmore but still on a quiet cul de sac. Roger responded promptly to all communications in advance and was very accommodating for a late evening check-in resulting from flight delays. Were the only people staying at the B&B that weekend so had access to the full main and upper floors (stayed in the upper floor accommodation). Very much a "family home" feel to it. Upper suite only has an air jet tub with extendable shower attachment (no stand up shower). There is a shower for the main floor accommodation. Very roomy (house and suite). Roger put together generously portioned and tasty , freshly cooked breakfasts each morning. Very clean and well appointed. Roger is an interesting gentleman and gracious host. Excellent stay. Would rebook here myself and recommend to others.

   Greg - Saskatoon, SK

The Mountain View room was clean, spatious and very comfortable. Roger is a great host and cooks a great breakfast. He is very knowledgeable about the area and was able to recommend some local amenities in Canmore. He was even nice enough to clean the snow off our car two mornings we were there. Very nice touch! We really enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend!

   Adam - Edmonton, AB

We couldn’t not have been happier with our stay at Roger’s B & B. His home is charming, gorgeous and immaculate. Roger was prompt, friendly and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. The upstairs space where we stayed is very large and relaxing with an amazing mountain view from the balcony as well. The house is equipped with everything and amenities are nearby if you want to stay in and cook as we did one evening. Thank you Roger for the excellent hospitality!

   Alex - Kitchener, ON

Roger was a friendly and accommodating host, the breakfasts were large and nutritious, the view was stunning and the room/living area was huge, comfortable, cozy and beautiful. I would easily stay there again if available on my next mountain excursion! What a gem of Canmore

   Savannah - Edmonton, AB

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.

   John - Bozeman, MT

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.

    Colin - Calgary, AB

Roger was a fantastic host! His home is delightfully intimate and cozy. We would definitely stay again and recommend that you do too!

    Logan - Calgary, AB

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.

     Victor - Zamora, ES

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.

     Gerli - Portland, OR

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!

    Emily - Oakland, CA

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

Roger was a great host with an inviting homey space and a great breakfast

   Claudia - Tulsa, OK

We had the best stay in Roger’s house during our 20 day traveling in Canada. We felt that we stayed at home and everything was spot on. We are so glad to meet Roger who is not only an excellent host but also an great human being. We hope we will return the lovely house and see Roger again if we go to visit the area in the future.

   Ting - Guildford, UK

Roger's was the best AirBNB. we have ever stayed in. The house and location are beautiful and Roger's breakfasts are superb. We would thoroughly recommend a stay at Ballyrock in Canmore

   Emma - South Hobart, AU

Rogers "Ballyrock" airbb is situated in a very quiet cul de sac. The welcome is very friendly and kind. The floor is very spacious and clean. Every moning Roger will prepare a tastfull breakfast that gets you going for the day. Please ask for his homemade pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruits. During our stay we had very pleasant conversations with Roger. Our only regret was that we only booked 2 nights. We would like to recommend Rogers place to everybody who would like nice & quiet stay in Canmore.

   Peter - Vught, NL

Roger's place is a true B&B. (AirB&B should be "AirB" since most places don't actually offer breakfast.) The healthy and tasty breakfast each day was the highlight of our stay. Roger was more than accommodating our dietary constraints and early schedules. Roger's place has two suites, and a bonus treat for us was meeting and eating with the other guests, trading experiences and tips. The place itself was clean, tidy, and comfortable. Roger was also able to loan us sunglasses, bear spray, etc.

   Connie - San Francisco, CA

We got lucky and booked our stay at Ballyrock Bed and Breakfast after another cancellation. Roger was so attentive to our needs the entire trip, making special alterations to breakfast based on our dietary restrictions and waiting up a bit later than expected to greet us and show us where to park when our plane got delayed several hours. The location is great and the home feels very clean and cozy. We will definitely stay here again if we are lucky enough to be in the area again!

   Valerie - Provo, UT

It was a wonderful experience to stay at Roger's home! Roger made delicious breakfast for all of us and made us feel at home. Super clean and super comfortable stay with very beautifully decorated home! Roger took great care of every little thing we needed. Wonderful experience! Strongly recommend!

   Nita - Morrisville, NC

Roger is the host who will ensure that you enjoy a comfortable and clean place to stay, honors flexibility in your schedule (he coordinates breakfast to meet your timetable) and offers suggestions of places to visit. His home encourages one to relax - outside in the peaceful yard, perusing his personal library of Irish books or enjoying the background music while eating a delicious breakfast of fresh, scrambled eggs or Irish pancakes. The location is an easy drive to the Banff park entrance - plus the town of Canmore has a variety of dining options in case you are looking for something quieter.

   Chris - Dexter, MI

This stands out as one of the very best BnBs at which we have stayed. The location is excellent (we thought Canmore a nicer place to stay than Banff). The facilities available to us in the house were superb. Roger is very pleasant and helpful and provides a breakfast that makes lunch redundant. Cannot recommend too highly.

   Peter - Maidenhead, UK

Roger is a wonderful host. The house was absolutely beautiful! We really loved our stay!

   Melissa - Downers Grove, IL

We loved staying with Roger. He is very nice and made us feel at home. The place is very warm and cozy. Breakfast was a real treat. Kitchen was very well equipped. Highly recommend!  The place is amazing, sparkling clean, beautifully furnished and with a very equipped kitchen. Excellent hospitality. We arrived around midnight and Roger was there to greet us. We loved talking to Roger and getting to know him over the delicious breakfasts.  We had supermarkets and everything we needed near by. It's 25 minutes from Banff with excellent hikes. Can't wait to come back!

   Dorit - Be'er Sheva, IL

Séjour fantastique. Le mieux de notre voyage. Roger est très gentil et accueillant. Nous vous recommandons cette adresse à 1000% !!!

   Maude - Glovelier, CH

This accommodation is beautiful and Roger is a great host. Highly recommended for a visit in the Canmore/Banff area.

   Sharon - Edmonton, AB

Roger is a delightful host who thinks of everything. The accommodations are beautiful, convenient, and spotless. The neighborhood is quiet and attractive, as well as being close to the center of town. Roger made breakfast for us one morning and it was delicious. I highly recommend staying here. Mardy and Chris

   Mardy - Fresno, CA

A perfect apartment and a great service.

   Dieter - Klingenthal, DE

Quite places to stay.The breakfast is nice.

   今莹 - Hangzhou, CN

Our 4 nights stay at Rogers „Garden View“ was great. The location is terrific and the house is in a very quiet area. You have easy access to the Banff National Park and the common hotspots there. Canmore and its restaurants is a 20 min walk. As a family of 4 we had plenty of room, our own clean bathroom and the breakfast was delightful. Roger is a very caring and friendly host and helped us regarding our plans for exploring the sights in Canmore and around. We had everything we needed - and more.

   Gaby - Rodermark, DE

Roger was a great host, very flexible, and made a lovely breakfast for all of us. Thank you!

   Nils - Munich, DE  

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at Roger's place. He is a very thoughtful host and cooked an excellent breakfast which was different each of the three days we stayed. Highly recommended.

   Elaine - Ickleton, UK

Roger is a great host. We loved staying at Ballyrock B&B, which is beautiful and very cosy. Roger serves an excellent breakfast and was very quick to respond to any querries we had. Canmore is a great little town which has lots to offer, especially if you like the outdoors. We would love to come back some time.

   Christoph - Berlin, DE

Hands down the best Air Bnb experience I’ve had. Roger was so accommodating to our dietary needs, and made the best breakfast!! His home is beautiful and spotless. Roger is so kind and respectful. I highly recommend this spot to anyone!!

   Kendell - Quincy, MA

Look no further. Everything here met and then exceeded our expectations. This is a beautiful home in a terrific location and Roger is a meticulous host. We were warmly welcomed and he offered us every possible assistance throughout our stay. We look forward to returning.

   Ken - Vancouver, BC

What a great place and host! Beyond our expectations. Wonderful breakfasts, great place with all the privacy we could want. Everything was so clean and interesting. Roger was the consummate host. I hope we can return.

   Lee - Vernon, Hills, IL

Roger was an excellent host! The breakfasts were great, the accommodations were clean and we felt at home, and Roger was very easy to communicate with throughout our stay. We would highly recommend!

   Erica - Edmonton, AB

Roger and his place are perfect in every way. The place is very clean, good distance to Main Street and the breakfast is delicious! If I could give more stars I would. Roger is extremely kind, helpful with anything you may need and genuinely wants to make your stay as great as possible. I’m going to be sharing his information with everyone that comes to this part of town, and can’t wait to come back for a visit.

   Hetal - Jersey City, NJ

It is a very nice house for travelers with car. The oven and cookers can work for Chinese food very well. It is very quite place. On the last day morning, I saw deer in the front of the door. It is a quite pleasant experience for me to stay in Roger’ home for 3 nights. His home is very exquisite, comfortable and clean. The breakfast he made is tasty. During breakfast, he gave me some helpful information for my traveling nearby. I enjoyed my time there very much.

   Xuemei - Bejing, CN

Our stay in Canmore was amazing, this bed and breakfast is defiantly the place to stay. Roger was an amazing host, who whips up a delightful breakfast. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need if your doing some of your own cooking. The space is very homey a perfect place to stay in the mountains as a home away from home. There are two rooms available to book, which would be perfect for a couple get away, but also means your not sharing the space with a too many people.

   Lisa - Edmonton, AB

Rogers place was EXCELLENT. Highly recommended. The pictures don’t do it justice

   Kate - Edmonton, AB

Just a big hooray for this accommodation & host. The attention and details of everything make you wonder if you are in a fairy tale. Thank you! We wish you and your family all the best and I am hopping to see you some time soon.

   Lucretia - Auckland, NZ

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!

    Qiao Ping - Guangzhou, CN

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!

      Eva - Pleasanton, CA

Roger's place is lovely! Beautiful views and great location with trails nearby and a easy walk to the centre of town. Roger was an attentive and gracious host. We will definitely return and can happily recommend it to others planning a trip to Canmore.

    Maureen - Edmonton, AB

Top marks for this one! Roger is a wonderful host. He goes out of his way to ensure that you are comfortable and that your stay is an enjoyable one. The facilities are first rate and make for a relaxing and comfortable stay for couples or small family groups. We highly recommend this Airbnb.
