First time to Cranbrook, my husband picked this B & B through an Internet site. Definitely a heritage building with history, staying here was an experience back in time. Very clean. Some traffic noise, as we were at the front facing the street. Our breakfast was delicious home-made eggs and bacon, toast, fruit and yogurt. I especially liked the thick... More

This B&B was located minuted from downtown Crankbrook. Although the building is a little old, the owners have kept it in very good shape. The hosts were extremely hospitable. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Due to the age of the house, the floors and bed do make creaking sound at times. The breakfast was a... More

We choose to stay here as a stop over from Banff, BC to Pendleton, OR. We chose it based on its reviews which were right on. Our stay was VERY nice. We enjoyed the ambiance, the friendly, but not overly friendly host, and his good advice of where to eat nearby and try some local beer. We also really liked... More

Thank you Kim and Barry for a wonderful 2 nights in Cranbrook. Your hospitality was appreciated. The rooms were beautiful and of another era. The original tin roof in the kitchen is awesome! Each morning, our breakfasts were delicious and the eggs perfectly cooked. If I am ever in Cranbrook again, I would definitely stay here again.

A house full of history and memories which took you back in time. Each room was decorated in its own style consistent with the house era. Our host Kym made us feel at home and fed us a delicious breakfast. Would recommend a stay here for anyone visiting Cranbrook.

Booked this accommodation due to great reviews and we were not disappointed. Hosts were welcoming and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The room was bright and airy with great views and the bed was so comfortable. The house and rooms are in the original style of the period and you could almost imagine stepping back in time but...

Bowness Mansion served as both the start and the finish of a two week motorcycling vacation. We really enjoyed our stay in this heritage home. The hosts are very friendly. The room was perfect for our gear and provided a comfortable sleep. We were at the front of the house and the street noise woke me but I'm a very... More

We stayed here during a heat wave in early July. Their website said they had air conditioning, which was one of the key factors for us deciding to stay here. We arrived around 4:00 and were greeted by Kim who showed us our room, which was on the top floor - and very hot. No air conditioning. She explained that... More

I write this review after over 6 weeks of extensive travel in Canada and after staying across various categories of Hotels,apartments and BnB properties. Bowness tops them all by far and remains the best stay of my Canada trip. The place is charming and a journey back in time. The house was built in 1910 and the owners of the... More
