With a team committed to providing guests and homeowners with the best possible experience, Spring Creek Vacations has evolved from trailblazer to mainstay in the Bow Valley.
It’s a concept most of us are familiar with now, but in 2009, what Spring Creek Vacations offered was nothing short of groundbreaking.
This was before Airbnb was commonplace, long before the idea of vacation rentals took off in Canmore. Spring Creek Vacations is a vacation condo rental company that runs like a hotel. That’s what makes it different from the other management companies in the area.
Spring Creek Vacations began operations with Rundle Cliffs Lodge, offering 1-3 bedroom suites with luxurious amenities. White Spruce Lodge was added to the inventory ten years later, as demand for vacation rentals grew.
This year, The Lofts at Tamarack will expand Spring Creek Vacations further to include modern loft suites and four-bedroom units.
The success of the concept has been in part due to the commitment of the Spring Creek Vacations team to provide exceptional service that goes beyond a cheerful greeting at the front desk.
Spring Creek Vacations has always been a hospitality company that wants both sides – homeowners and guests – to have the best possible experience.
Making it easy for homeowners to reap the financial benefits of short-term rentals is a team effort that homeowner Don Rumpel notices. Don and his wife Victoria Swires purchased in White Spruce Lodge after years of visiting Canmore from Calgary.
They also recently acquired a second unit in The Tamarack.
“From our perspective as owners, I really get the sense that they treat us as family,” says Don. “The front office are always so friendly and helpful. They’re always available; the office is just down the street from our particular unit, and it’s very appealing for a lot of people to know they’re not just getting the keys and access to a unit. They really are here 24/7.”
Don notices this connection within the team everywhere from management to the cleaning staff who stop to say hello in the hallway.
And as the owner of several rental properties that he and his wife manage themselves, Don knows “full well the amount of work it takes,” which makes the hands-off service at Spring Creek Vacations for short-term rentals all the more appealing.
Using the online booking calendar to plan dates, Don and Victoria get out to enjoy their unit on a monthly basis. They can book in advance to block off special weekends or holidays, with no black-out windows. Their grown children often join in.
“Our kids practically grew up here hiking, camping, and skiing, so Canmore has always been our second home,” Don says. For him, the pull to Canmore is about “the mountain lifestyle and a deep sense of community that you can’t experience in a big city.”
For guests who may be discovering what makes Canmore special for the first time, a stay at one of the luxurious properties at Spring Creek Vacations is sure to make an impression.
Unit features are consistent across properties, including in-suite laundry, rock fireplaces, and spainspired bathrooms. Each building has underground parking, a gym facility, an outdoor hot tub, a resident lounge, and landscaped courtyards connecting to Spring Creek’s extensive trail network.
But where consistency is key to creating an unforgettable guest experience, the properties themselves are as unique as the characters you’re bound to meet at Spring Creek.
Rundle Cliffs beckons guests with an impressive Rundle stone entrance, creating an atmosphere of mountainous drama. White Spruce Lodge blends modern styling with traditional materials, including timber, glass and stone. The Tamarack, which is slated for completion in 2022, introduces loft spaces and elevated design details inspired by nature.
Although they may look different on the outside, what connects the Spring Creek Vacation properties is a flurry of activity behind the scenes.
Always looking to enhance the experience, Spring Creek Vacations uses their expertise to make the homeowners’ investments profitable, but also ensures that home-away-from-home experience to the guests.
