“Rustic Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This was the perfect stay, after a long day! When I booked the owners had let me know that they were having a wee shindig, but that I was more than welcome to book for the night, and so I did! I arrived in true good timing, right around the time they were about to serve their dinner... they showed me what amazing hosts they were by... offering me a glass of wine! I settled in quietly, and was immediately calmed by the view overlooking the river and an amazingly stunning orange sherbet sunset. My room was cozy and serene with a nice reading chair, a very comfortable bed and a cute little electric fireplace to aid the tranquil atmosphere. Breakfast was SUPERB and I was delighted with a yoghurt parfait, fresh toast and marmalade and an asparagus, cheese omlette with salsa on the side - Yes, quit drooling and book already! Sipping coffee and chatting with Jim and Sheila was a great way to start the day (-: Sheila was lovely enough to send me on my way with a side of banana bread - which, I was very thankful for a few hours after I left in the morning. White Horse has all you can ask for in a B&B, friendly, clean and a warm, unique atmosphere. If I am in the area again, I will cross my fingers that there is a room for me here (-:
* For those travelling with pets, Jim and Sheila allowed me to stay with my dog, which I was so grateful for!

Room Tip: I loved my room with the balcony overlooking the water (-:

We loved this B&B! It couldn't have been any nicer. The room was perfect, large and well decorated, the bed was comfortable, the bath was great, the hosts were super friendly and the breakfast was AMAZING! Anyone who stays here will be very pleased! I guarantee it!

I booked this fantastic B&B for my husband's birthday for an overnight stay. Sheila & Jim did not disappoint as very gracious & accommodating hosts. The location is just outside winnipeg, Manitoba on the scenic Assinaboine River with a lovely walk to a bench to sit & enjoy the river. The room had a lovely view of the river as well with a great private balcony. We had a delicious dinner & breakfast cooked by Jim, complementary beverages. An amazing show of a variety of colourful birds to watch from the dining room as well as the deck where the hot tub & screened in gazebo also were situated. They also offered bicycles, horseshoe games, pool table. Also Jim is an artist; potter & painter. Sheila is also delightful. Store for amenities minutes away. All in all a very enjoyable stay, we would go back & recommend to our friends.

This B&B is located in St. Francois Xavier (a short drive from Winnipeg). Luxurious accomodations worthy of a 5 star rating (but my wife says should be 10 star). Room overlooked an oxbow of the Assiniboine river. Eagles and a huge variety of birds feeding right outside the window. The is both spotless and gorgeous. Large pool table near entrance. Luxurious bedding and towels. Terry robes also provided. Breakfast was superb and any leftover was provided for continued travel (we had fresh banana bread). Serene peaceful setting. Advance booking is strongly recommended because they are in high demand. A huge thank you to our hosts Jim and Sheila for an experience we will cherish always.

What a wonderful place to stay! Sheila and Jim are wonderful hosts. A very peaceful place to wind down after being on the road all day. Great bed and a gourmet breakfast that a five star restaurant could not top. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable.

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 !

Room Tip: Choose the West room
