Our Story

Spring Creek Vacations first opened with Rundle Cliffs Lodge in 2009 as part of the Spring Creek community development project.

When Frank Kernick first built Rundle Cliffs Lodge, he and his team saw an opportunity for stunning vacation rentals that could grow into something bigger. Well before companies like Airbnb and VRBO would grow into the popular vacation options they are today, Spring Creek Vacations had to learn how to not only succeed in this new business but also navigate the early days of the online vacation rental world.

“It started off as a very small, simple business with only a few employees. And learning how to get things online and be able to market to people online, all really evolved over the last 10 plus years.”

– Frank Kernick, president and developer of the Spring Creek community.

Now over a decade later, what started as a small business has evolved into the successful vacation property management business it is today. Currently, we manage nearly 50 vacation rentals throughout three buildings in the Spring Creek community, with more buildings and units on the way as we continue to grow.

As we continue to evolve with the community and the needs of our guests and owners, Spring Creek Vacations strives to provide high-quality hospitality services that you can count on. 

Our Buildings

At Spring Creek Vacations, we have three unique buildings that each have their own feel and style. All within the wonderful and lively Spring Creek community, you’re only steps away from downtown Canmore. As the “Heart of Canmore”, Spring Creek has its own stand-out features that make our buildings some of the best locations in all of Canmore.

Rundle Cliffs Lodge

As our first building where it all started, Rundle Cliffs Lodge has been a staple at Spring Creek Vacations for over a decade.

Bordered by two creeks and surrounded by the inspiring views Canmore is famous for, Rundle Cliffs’ impressive rundle stone entrances offer a fitting prelude to the luxury within. With each vacation rental equipped with everything you’ll need and only a 5-minute walk to Main Street in downtown Canmore, Rundle Cliffs Lodge is an excellent choice for your mountain getaway.

White Spruce Lodge

White Spruce Lodge was the next building to join Spring Creek Vacations and has quickly become a favourite for many of our guests.

The building was designed to capitalize on Canmore’s signature mountain views – Ha Ling Peak, the Rundle Range and, to the south, the celebrated Three Sisters – White Spruce Lodge is the perfect place to make lasting memories with family and friends. Equipped with everything you’ll need for your vacation and close to the neighbourhood’s future plaza, The Beat, you’ll feel right at home.

Tamarack Lodge

Our latest building which we opened in early 2022, the Tamarack Lodge offers a new edge to our vacation rentals.

Located directly beside the latest and liveliest addition to the Spring Creek neighbourhood, The Beat, the Tamarack Lodge has stunning views of the new courtyard and is right in the heart of all the action. Plus, its beautiful fully-equipped vacation rentals offer the perfect mix of mountain-rustic-meets-modern-luxury design.

About Spring Creek

No One Knows Canmore & Our Spring Creek Community Like We Do!

Building on family heritage, the Spring Creek land has been in developer Frank Kernick’s family since 1927. His grandparents operated a modest dairy farm until the 1950s when it became a camp for the workers constructing the Trans-Canada Highway. It then evolved into Restwell – a mobile home park and campground.

With its unmatched location bordered by two spring-fed creeks at the heart of downtown Canmore, it was only natural for the site to evolve into the town’s premier residential neighbourhood.

The master plan for Spring Creek’s 70 acres includes a mix of homes for every age and every stage of life, all melding high standards of craftsmanship and environmental sustainability with the architectural character right at home in this magical mountain town. Along streetscapes infused with European flair, Spring Creek’s spaces are being sculpted with pedestrians in mind: flat, highly walkable pathways, plenty of places to gather and visit; and around every corner, an uplifting view whose power to delight never wanes.

Among the many things that set Spring Creek apart is a clear commitment to cultivating a sense of community and belonging. This commitment has taken shape in an active and inclusive property owners association – in earnest efforts to protect the land’s natural beauty, which always brings out the best in people – in an array of parks, pathways and other places for Spring Creek owners and members of the broader community to gather and connect and more deeply enjoy the vibrancy of our town and its Rocky Mountain setting.
