This elegant mansion is like stepping back in time, and it's perfect as a bed and breakfast because it really makes you feel as if you're on vacation. I spent a night there recently and was able to enjoy a walk to Osborne Village for dinner, past the stately oaks on Middle Gate. The room was well decorated and appointed,... More

We spent three nights in room 3 about a week ago. The house is absolutely gorgeous and lavishly decorated. The grounds are lovely and well-kept. I wish we had gotten to take advantage of the pool but we were busy with wedding-related events about an hour outside of Winnipeg. What time we did spend at the Inn was very enjoyable.... More

I was in Winnipeg visiting family and stayed at the River Gate Inn for two evenings. The location is one of the most restful in Winnipeg. The 'Gates' is an amazing area to visit - beautiful homes on massive yards with trees that go high into the sky all surrounded by the river. Just going for a walk is peaceful.... More

This 96 year-old home, in a conveniently located, residential neighborhood is a lovely alternative to a hotel. Very comfortable, spacious rooms in a home with lots of comfy sitting rooms, and outdoor spaces. It is a home with history and character. The hosts make guests feel like their personal guests. The breakfasts are varied and excellent!

We had two nights’ stay at the River Gate Inn, on a road trip taking in Winnipeg. It’s a lovely big old building in an historic part of town - very close to the centre of Winnipeg and ideal for getting about. The decor and accommodation are beautifully done and very comfortable. Mavis and Bob were great hosts and the... More

This is the BEST place you can possible stay at while visiting Winnipeg! It feels like it's country side,with it's huge property and being located on the river but it is right in town. Everything is perfection - from it's old and interesting architecture, the perfectly landscaped grounds to the friendly hospitality. The breakfasts that are included are amazing! Everything... More

We had the opportunity to visit the Inn on two occasions and were impressed by how welcoming the Inn keepers were. A lovely historic mansion along the river, de core spot on to the period, rooms tastefully decorated and spotless,beautiful yard with in-ground pool.... More

I had never before stayed in a B&B; I booked the River Gate Inn, based on other reviews on this site. Mavis is a wonderful Inn Keeper and provides elegant service. Her breakfast is fabulous and the location of this place is very convenient to many of the attractions in Winnipeg, although it is in a secluded site, very peaceful... More

This was our first trip to Winnipeg and we wanted to stay somewhere central so we could walk or bike to the sights. It was a great stroke of luck that we found the River Gate Inn. We absolutely loved our stay. River Gate is a grand old home built on Armstrong Point, a peninsula with the Assiniboine River flowing... More
