Glenora House is ideally situated in a prestigious neighbourhood alongside McKinnon Ravine just west of the downtown core in Edmonton.

Constructed in 2008 for the specific purpose of executive rental accommodations, great care was taken to ensure a private, comfortable and family-friendly space. No expense has been spared in the construction of this property. Separate, private entry, 9-foot sound-proofed ceilings, hydronically heated floors, gas fireplace and in-suite laundry are just a few of the conveniences you’ll enjoy.

Ideal for executives and families, this self-contained suite boasts two bedrooms (both queens), a large washroom, a spacious living room with gas fireplace, a fully-appointed kitchen including stove, microwave and dishwasher, dining area, and in-suite laundry. Our price includes weekly maid service and linen change for stays 14 days or longer.

Each of the bedrooms has hotel-quality beds and linens, a dresser, mirror, cable television and DVD player. The bathroom has a separate tub/shower room making it very share-able whether you're traveling with your family or your friends. It has a sizable sink and plenty of shelf space for toiletries.

In the kitchen you'll find everything you need to prepare meals and a full-size fridge to keep leftovers and groceries. Everything you need to serve a dinner for four in the adjacent dining room is provided. Everything you're used to having at home in your kitchen is here, full size.

In the living room, you'll find a big-screen TV with cable to watch your favourite shows. Everything has been decorated stylishly neutral with lovely artful touches throughout.

The home is situated in a mature, family-oriented neighbourhood. It's proximity to Edmonton's amazing river valley pathway system is ideal whether you like to take a leisurely stroll, or go for a marathon-distance run.

The quality of our suite is only surpassed by its incredible value. You will not find comparable accommodations for less anywhere in the city which is why we welcome past guests back again and again.

About Mindy Lamont

Our family of four has been operating Glenora House since 2007. Over the years we have met many fantastic people from all over the world and gained many friends. What started out as a necessity has evolved into a passion. Now we wouldn't have it any other way!

Mindy Lamont purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Mindy Lamont chose Edmonton

We purchased the original property at this location in 2001 with the intent to build anew someday. In 2007, we began construction on Glenora House and completed it in September 2008.

What makes this apartment unique

You really can't ask for a better location. It's just loaded with wildlife, trees, walking paths, charming homes, yet just a 10-minute drive from downtown, Old Strathcona, West Edmonton Mall, and even shorter to the Royal Alberta Museum, Alberta Legislature, and Telus World of Science. Grocery, pharmacy, banking, and restaurants are just around the corner. It's a fantastic spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The suite had everything I needed and the hosts are friendly and helpful. It's a beautiful place to stay in a great neighbourhood. I would recommend Glenora House to anyone.

Nicely furnished and comfortable basement suite

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great. My mom and I was staying in Edmonton for 3 nights and found this apartment to suit all of our needs. The two bedrooms allowed us sufficient privacy and some much needed silence during the night that we wouldn't get by sharing a hotel room. And it was at a fraction of the cost.

The living room and kitchen set up were great. We cooked half of our meals there and weren't lacking in supplies.

Mindy was great from the start. There was some confusion getting us the code to enter the property but by the time we arrived it was all sorted. We were a little confused about the parking situation. Most of the instructions said to park in front of the house or along the fence across the street. There was also a sticker near our front door that said to park only in front of the street and if that wasn't available, to park behind the house. We went behind the house in the alley to scope out the situation and figured the only spot to park would have blocked the driveway so we were confused. Thankfully, we were able to squeeze into a spot in front of the house each time we parked.

The only items of consideration I would make are: 1) Although I was happy to see that an iron and ironing board were provided (a rarity in the world of VRBO), the ironing board didn't have a pad under the cover and the drid lines on the board were ironed into my shirt and 2) For those with anxiety about creepy crawly things, be mindful that this is a basement suite. There will be bugs. We found 1-2 per day that we had to dispose of. This didn't bother us (since we willingly rented a basement suite), but I could expect that this would catch some off guard.

Overall - I would highly recommend this apartment.

Practical and reasonably priced for a family

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed here for a longer time (a few months), so we appreciated the nice big size of the suite and the fact that it had a full kitchen and a laundry room. We enjoyed the gas fireplace too as it was winter, and the location was ideal for us. Thanks Mindy!

Fantastic Place

  • 5 of 5

This basement suite is everything you need to enjoy a stay away from home. The suite is extremely clean and in a very quiet neighbourhood. Very close proximity to the river with some great walks / runs. The owner Mindy is superb and very accommodating to all your needs. We had a lovely stay and would def consider this place again when we return to Edmonton.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This is as close to a home away from home as you can get! It was very comfortable and clean and well-equipped. Our kids were competing in various sport activities so there was a lot of coming and going from the rental. Mindy was kind enough to let us extend our time in the rental on our last day as our daughter competed in the late afternoon. Fortunately no one else was renting the suite that day, so it allowed for this accommodation. Thank you!

Great spot in West Edmonton

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time at Glenora House. The suite is beautifully finished and nicely appointed, and really does not feel like a basement suite at all. We did have some issues with noise from the upstairs suite on our first night - the owner quickly resolved this and our next two nights were silent. The amenities - like the washer, dryer, and fireplace - were fantastic. We would certainly stay here again when we next visit Edmonton.
