This is an old house (more than 100 years old), and has just been purchased by a new young couple to continue the bed & breakfast. We had the room called the "Steeples Room" (as you walk upstairs, on the right). My sister & her husband had the room on the left (don't remember the name), and were not as... More

We stayed 2 nights in a wonderful room, Kim & Barry make you very welcome. The best was firm and gave us a good nights sleep. The breakfast was varied and very delicious. The property is very close to restaurants and supermarkets, there is a lovely room to sit and read or have a quiet drink after dinner and a... More

We stayed here for three nights. The room was cozy and warm. The bed was very comfortable. The owners are quite friendly as are the dog and cat. It is nicely located within easy walking distance of downtown restaurants and shopping. Just a few blocks off the main highway. A much nicer option than places on the highway. The breakfast... More

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...
