“A peaceful getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

This B and B never fails to please. The peace and quiet are wonderful. The bedroom and bathroom are spotless. The view of the oxbow lake is serene, with eagles nesting and a constant variety of other waterfowl. We requested supper for our stay, and we were treated to a meal that was worthy of a fine restaurant. The meals are creative, fresh and tasty, and more than ample in quantity. We were sent home with a few extra muffins from breakfast, and some tasty reminders of the Mediterranean chicken - delicious! Sheila and Jim are exceptional hosts, intelligent and articulate. The conversation never lags. This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at this location, and we will definitely return. It is just a few minutes from the city, but it is a wonderfully secluded location. So much better than a hotel! 5 out of 5 stars.

Room Tip: The hot tub is wonderful - don't miss the opportunity to go in for a dip.

This past Christmas, my husband and I stayed 13 nights at Whitehorse Escape B &B. Everything about being there is wonderful. Sheila and Jim are an amazing host couple and their home is charming. The West room is like a dream to come home to in the Winnipeg winter. Breakfasts are delicious.Our family is moving away from Winnipeg , but we shall always remember winter in Jim and Sheila's home and the interesting conversations we shared. This is the perfect place to stay !

I have found that when visiting the lovely city of Winnipeg no other place will do. It has to be the White Horse Escape B&B. I have stayed twice now once with my best friend for a ladies get away and a second with my husband for a romantic getaway, and both times my hosts Jim and Sheila blew me away. I first stayed in May during the rainy season when it was green and all the flowers were in bloom. There beautiful deck and gazebo make for perfect bird watching or relaxing outdoors for a real "away from the city" experience. I also stayed on Valentines day where they really went above and beyond to make the stay for my husband and I have a real romantic feel with truffles and roses waiting in out rooms which was fantastic with the snow outside and the electronic fire place in the cozy room. So perfect. They also were happy to entertain and visit with us before we went out for the night. So welcoming and down to earth. They also are close to the the city (about 20 mins) which is ideal for going to town for the day sight seeing and getting a quiet and relaxing place to stay at the end of the day. I have to admit my favorite part about both stays was the next mornings breakfast. Jim is one heck of a cook and makes breakfast a more eloquent and gourmet than your traditional eggs and bacon. It was incredible. I cant say enough about what a wonderful place this is for any kind of get away. I cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: I have stayed in both rooms and they are both lovely but I have to say the room with the balcony is...

First I would love to start off by saying, Jim and Sheila were great hosts! Their home was beautiful and homey! The scenery was amazing as well. We stayed in the West Room with the awesome view of the Assiniboine oxbow, and may I add, the approx. 3000 Canada geese that landed and stayed all night. Although our room had a great balcony, it was a bit too cold to enjoy it, unfortunately. We did enjoy the use of their hot tub to take in the brisk night. Their provided breakfasts were very good, plus we stayed in for the delicious dinner on the second night of our stay! Jim and Sheila are excellent hosts, and now good friends! Definitely would recommend and we will book and stay again! Bob and Sue

Our two-night stay at White Horse Escape was a wonderful respite following our exhausting overnight flight into Winnipeg. Our private veranda of the West Room gave us a beautiful and very restful view of the Assiniboine River. As if on command following our arrival, we enjoyed an awesome sunset display of hundreds of migrating geese swirling overhead and landing in the river before us. Our gracious hosts Sheila and Jim were very knowledgeable and full of great suggestions for things to do; they even provided us a complimentary guest pass to FortWhyte Alive which gained us free all-day entry into this wonderful wildlife refuge nearby.

Jim is a fabulous chef; our scrumptious breakfasts were made to order; and the menu always included fresh vegetables from their garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our spacious, well-appointed room; and very much appreciated the wall-mounted electric fireplace in our room! We are glad we found this place outside of busy Winnipeg, and give it our highest recommendation!

My fiance and I loved every minute of our stay at White Horse Escape B&B. This was our first bed and breakfast experience, and our hesitations were quickly put at ease. Jim and Sheila were warm, welcoming, and eager to offer help or suggestions for our visit to Winnipeg, but, above all, offered us our privacy. They really have knowing just when to slip out of the room down to an art. Sheila was willing to go out of her way to find out the best rated sushi joint in town, and text me the address after we headed to the city! We rented the room facing the river, and it was such a beautiful view. The room was very clean and modern, but still made you feel at home. Actually, I would almost describe the experience as being at a favorite aunt and uncle's home, where you were free to come and go as you pleased.

And have I mentioned the breakfasts? Blew my mind. Five-star quality, made by Jim, with vegetables from their garden. The whole stay was such a much-needed nourishing experience. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: The west room has a great view of the river, but can be very noisy when the hundreds (yes, I said hu...

Stayed three nights and never saw the other couple who stayed for one of those. Easy drive in to the city, yet far enough out that you can see the stars from the hot tub. Jim and Sheila are very nice and will let you know what all there is to do, places to eat, etc. Jim's homemade breakfast hits the spot every time. Excellent price and experience. Will stay again if we ever get back up to Winnipeg.
