“Great place to start our vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband and I spent the first night of our 2-week Canadian Rockies vacation here. We arrived shortly after the Calgary floods, which unfortunately cost this lovely B&B part of their backyard and deck, and caused them to be evacuated for several days the week prior to our arrival. But the house was not damaged and the property is still beautiful. Our hosts, Merril and Diane, were completely welcoming and gracious; we would never have guessed what they had just gone through had we not been keeping track of the local news. We stayed in one of the smaller downstairs rooms, since we were there for only one night, but it was very comfortable. The breakfast was one of the best we've had at any B&B -- delicious, and a great variety of items. The location was also convenient for us, being close to the Trans-Canada highway heading to the national parks.

Hosts Merril and Diane go all out to be friendly and helpful and provide a beautifully presented and abundant breakfast. Lots of helpful tourist material, and a stunning view of the Bow River from an outdoor patio overlooking the banks. Even a gazebo if it's raining! A bit of country right in the city - 10 minutes from downtown.

My family and I discovered this Bed and Breakfast by chance and it has become our little hideaway anytime we travel Calgary or Banff. I have slept in the King and Queen rooms- the detail and decorations are excellent. They were all done by Diane.
The breakfast is legendary. Diane and Merill are useful source of info and history for the Montgomery area.
I have enjoyed all my stays at their place

Room Tip: Ask for the king room if it is available, if not the Queen room, it is equally good

We stayed for two nights at Along River Ridge. The rooms were charming. The living room, including pool table, was a great addition. Breakfasts were varied, delicious and more than generous. The outdoor terrace, overlooking the river, is great and just a few steps from a lovely riverside walking trail. We felt welcome and comfortable and had a great time.

We stayed here for 3 nights in the King room. It totally exceeded our expectations, the room was fantastic, Merril and Dianne were great hosts who couldn't do enough to make our stay enjoyable. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived, we were even given a lift to the Mall and the Calgary Transit station. The Breakfast was great and really set us up for the day, tea and coffee was available 24hrs. The location couldn't be better for a relaxing break, the views along the river are amazing. We would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Calgary and would happily stay here again.

It's not just the location (in a beautiful spot along the Bow) or that the breakfasts are full and tasty, but it's the hospitality that makes us go back again and again. Merril and Dianne have made us feel very welcome and at home. It's like visiting family and much appreciated.

It's now our first choice if we need a place in Calgary.

Room Tip: They have four rooms, two up and two down. The upstairs suites are as nice or better than the finer...

We stay at Along The River 3 to 4 times a year, while visiting family a few miles away. It continues to be our very favorite B&B, Diane and Merrill are very gracious hosts, more like friends now. Breakfasts are always delicious, with fresh seasonal fruit varieties selected at farm markets. We feed birds and squirrels at home, so we enjoy watching the different varieties eating on the porch at ATR during breakfast, with more than a dozen bird feeders, and popcorn for the squirrels.

An interesting place to stay as well, with a number of unusual collections. Ask Merrill to see the Hard Rock displays.

Room Tip: We have always stayed in the Queen room.
