We stayed there last week for the first time and had the arts and crafts suite. The rooms were cosy and clean with a super comfy bed! The owners were friendly and helpful. And they made a great breakfast!

We have been staying at the guest house every year for the past 6-7 years and have no plans to stop. We keep coming back both because it's the perfect accommodation for us and our dog and because Dawn and Mark are perfect hosts. They made us feel welcome from the very first visit and we now look forward to catching up with them every year. They are very personable and happy to share their extensive knowledge of the area. Both are fabulous chefs as well! The guest house has everything we need after a day out fishing or exploring. The kitchen is well stocked and the new pillow top beds are especially comfortable. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and only a couple blocks from the Crowsnest River and the pathway that follows the river for miles. The back deck and yard, though not totally fenced in, is a perfect place to hang out. As for what the Crowsnest Pass area offers, it's one of the most beautiful places we have found. We can't wait for our next trip.

Going to stay in Coleman is like stepping back in time, and enjoying the historical atmoshere of the days gone by! Dawn and Mark are friendly and welcoming hosts, who are genuinely interested in making sure you enjoy your stay- whether it is to hike ghost coal mining towns, flyfish in the streams or attend a scapbooking /quilting retreat! They know great food and deliver it! This B&B has been a work in progress and this part of history is well worth spending a few days exploring!( good value in every way) Look forward to a treat, as this is hidden in downtown Coleman!!

I stayed here for a week this fall when I was in the Crowsnest Pass for a conference. I stayed in the 20's room. There is a bedroom with a bathroom off of it and a sitting room with a pull out in it. Mark and Dawn are so hospitable. It is so cool to come in after the day out and walk in to incredible smells in the kitchen. They are incredible cooks. I love waking up to the smells of bacon cooking in the morning. I would definitely stay here again when I was in the pass. The only thing that is unfortunate is the trains that blow their whistles all night but after a couple of nights you don't even notice them anymore.

A group of us have been staying at this B&B for several years now for a flyfishing vacation. Very nice comfortable place right in the historic town of Coleman at the foot of the forestry trunk road. The owners, Dawn and Mark are wonderful, friendly people and both are exceptional chefs. The breakfasts are varied and you can also take advantage of the optional dinners which surpass any of the restaurant meals you will find in the area. We always look forward to our annual return to Country Encounters

We stayed two nights in the ‘20s’ room and the ‘arts & craft’ room at Country Encounters and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were large and comfortable (the website accurately reflects the rooms and facilities). The owners were very friendly and hospitable– suggesting activities and places to go for meals – while respecting our space and privacy. Accommodation options seem a bit limited in the Crowsnest Pass but this seems to be (by far) the best option in the area. It is away from the highway and is nice and quiet.
This is my first tripadviser review, but I’m not involved with the B&B: I’m posting because was hard to find info about where to stay in the Crowsnest Pass.
