Beautiful location with a fantastic view to Sheep River - feeling mother nature. Having the fantastic breakfast from our friendly hosts - felt like being at home. Great hospitality.

Spectacular view

The riverview bnb checked all the boxes for us, from the start of our visit driving down the tree lined driveway and the spectacular River valley view from our suite, to the relaxing private movie night with my hubby to the delicious fresh and healthy breakfast. I would recommend this bnb to anyone that asked for a great place to stay in the calgary area!

Great place,website not accurate

The host family is very nice and knew the area well, had great suggestions for restaurants. However, their website should be updated as some things were not available: the pool and hot tub were closed, the river walk was not walkable, and the movie room didn't exist.

Innkeeper Response
We are sorry that you somehow received incorrect information. All of the items that you mentioned are indeed available at the B&B and we pride ourselves on our amenities. The theater for instance sports a high def projector on a 10 foot screen in a soundproof theater setting. The nature walk does indeed go to the river and is easily walkable - maybe you needed directions? We hope you give us another chance and by all means ask if somethings operation or location is not readily apparent.

The property was abit below what I expected for the price. View was beautiful but among was empty water bottles - weeds throughout - just seems like not enough time put into the surroundings, which is the primary draw to this location. Breakfast was excellent and a FULL course selection.

Great place to stay

My husband and I are from New England and it is difficult to find a nice Bed and Breakfast in other parts of the country. Owner/staff were friendly and shared info on nice places to eat close by. They were friendly and welcoming but not overbearing. Views to die for and the location is just beautiful. Clean, comfortable and as private as you want to be. Highly recommend a visit here.

While in town for a wedding, we had the pleasure of a very short stay (just one night). We felt like we had had a little visit with friends! The owners were warm and welcoming and even though we could not stay for breakfast in the morning, the 'chef' packed us up a lovely bowl of fruit and perfectly done bacon to go! He did not get a chance to break any egg yolks for us¿¿. We would love to stay again in the future. Spectacular setting for outdoor wedding! We stayed in the Zen room. Bed was super comfortable. Only drawback to the room is that their is no place to put our toiletries in the bathroom. Definitely recommend!

Very nice, quiet location. We enjoyed our stay.

Fabulous Get-away - yet so close!

We had a great last-minute stay here, and found that between the theatre room and the pool table and hot tub, we didn't need any other entertainment "out". It was quiet and restful, peaceful and beautiful. Highly recommended.

Beautiful place!

This was our first time at a bed and breakfast and it was a great experience. The outside property is beautiful with great landscaping down a hill at the back of the house. There is a big wrap around deck with places to sit and relax and enjoy the view. The house felt warm and cozy, but it was very quiet. Lots of places to relax inside the house too. There is a big games room, and drinks that you can make for yourself (tea, hot chocolate, coffee). The pool house is beautiful with many windows. Our room, the Pond room was a good size and nicely decorated...the bathroom could use updating. Breakfast was really good....waffles with fresh fruit, eggs, sausage, mini muffins! This was a great place to stay and a very relaxing get away. We only stayed one night, but next time hopefully will be longer....you need more time to enjoy this beautiful place!
