Loved it

The house was everything I expected but the restaurant was too expensive for my budget. There was a wedding dress exhibition on within the house which was also interesting.

Beautiful heritage house in downtown Calgary but not a lot in there. They have a display on wedding dresses currently and have opened the sitting room furnished but there's a lot of empty space. Nice place for lunch and beautiful' gardens

We had brunch here and the meal and service were pretty good. There is a great deal of history here and you can take a tour of the house after brunch.

The wedding dress exhibit was on when we visited which added to the atmosphere in the home. The house is beautifully preserved, although most of the original furnishings were scattered in an auction during the Depression. The stained glass, woodwork and gardens are worth the visit alone. The gift shop has vintage jewellery and antique china.

We celebrated a momentous event in our lives here with a lunch. Yes, there is a fancy restaurant in here... Reservations is very important because the restaurant is not always here. After we walked around the house and learned how this mansion was owned by a pertinent family during the olden days....Interesting especially to history lovers...

Lougheed House features numerous exhibits relevant to our Calgary story. They are told in a relevant, gracious fashion in keeping with the surroundings. It is a joy to visit each time that I am reminded of events through the Lougheed House email newsletter. The grounds and surrounding neighbourhood are a lovely place to wander and bring visitors to our city.

This historic home has an impressive display of flowers and plants even early in the growing season. Walk around all the gardens and see what new flowers are enjoying the rain and short amounts of sun today

I go to this lovely old city center historic home. The interior houses a lovely restaurant and is also home to special events.

Visited with friends for lunch, which was excellent, and then toured the mansion. A great look at a bygone era. Architecture and antiques are superb. True Alberta history which will surprise you.
