we stayed, for the first time ever at a private accommodation for one night during our honey moon and we are SO happy we found Rita and her gingerbread house! The house was centrally located and absolutely beautifully decorated and so cozy. One of the best night sleeps we had our whole 10 day trip through the Rockies. Rita was... More

We stayed for 4 nights in the basement apartment. Very comfortable bed and nicely decorated. Location was outstanding for access to town, very short walk. Rita had great advice on activities, and provided a simple and tasty breakfast (Bagels, yogurt, fruit, muesli).

We arrived in Jasper without a booking and found this gem on the noticeboard at the Tourist Information Office. The very friendly Rita gave us a small cosy basement apartment with a small living room, a gas fire and a tiny kitchenette. She was really helpful and gave us lots of information about Jasper NP and also dining suggestions. Breakfast... More

We stayed in the Kerkeslin Room, a lovely room with vaulted ceiling which was very tastefully decorated. Next door there was a cosy sitting area with a fridge and drinks making facilities leading to a balcony. The shared bathroom is very large with a gorgeous bath and separate shower. Rita is very informative and offers good advice on what to... More

An amazing house with a beautiful garden & a wonderful informal atmosphere. If you want someone there to wait on you hand & foot go to a hotel. Rita lets people into her home & we personally loved the relaxed way she runs the place - she wasn't there when we arrived but came back every hour to check for... More

Found this beautiful place on the web, read the reviews on trip advisor and booked and so glad we did! We flew out to Alberta to surprise our dear friend for her 60th birthday and spent 3 days/nights in Jasper. Rita was so accommodating, lots of information on local events etc! So convenient to downtown, an easy walk for sure!... More

My husband and I spent three nights at Rita's Gingerbread House this fall. We found our stay to be very comfortable and Rita to be extremely knowledgeable about the area. We would highly recommend the Gingerbread House to folks looking for a central, comfortable home in a central location.

The location of this property is very good and only a short stroll into town. The rooms are nice and quaint and there is also a very big bathroom and good communal areas. We sat having a drink on the balcony both nights we were there. The house overall thought is starting to look a litte bit tired and there... More

The house itself is spectacular. Within walking distance it looks just like its name... a Gingerbread house. Clean and beautifully decorated with every space filled with little knick knacks. My house would be cluttered if I had as many things but this just adds to its character. Our room was the Tekarra room. Now that I stayed there I would... More

Rita H, Owner at The Gingerbread House, responded to this review

I am sorry that your stay with us was not up to the standard response we have come to expect of our guests. Of the 150 licensed Private Home accommodations in Jasper we are one of only 12 or so with a license to serve a continental breakfast. None have a license to serve anything cooked. Our general menu is... More

Traditional B&B that offers all the comfort we needed to relax from the adventures in the Rockies, at a reasonable price. Good location in walking distance to Jasper downtown. 2 neat and clean rooms and a very nice bathroom, shared between the 2 rooms. Rita is very entertaining and extremely helpful, a pleasant host. Good and strong coffee in the... More
