“A little piece of Heaven in Calgary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2007

There is nothing bad we can ay about Along River Ridge.
Dianne and Merrill are the perfect hosts without being intrusive. Their knowledge about the Calgary area is second to none and are more than happy to help out. The bedrooms are suberb with everything you need for a very comfortable stay. The guest area downstairs has a beautiful lounge with hundreds of books & games as well as a snooker table and kitchen.
To top it all after a long and tiring day trampling the streets of Calgary you can finish it of with a relaxing jaccuzzi or a bonfire by the river - heaven!
This has got to be the best B&B we've ever stayed in anywhere in the world because of the little finishing and personal touches around the whole place. We'll definitely be back for the relaxation factor and perfect hosts.

After a hard day spent at the Calgary zoo we arrived at "Along River Ridge". I admit, we had trouble finding it but only because Canadians do everything the opposite to Australians(this includes driving)......N.W. has no meaning to us,,,,it does make a difference.....we were on the other side of the city but the owners were very good at giving directions........even though we rang several times!!!
If I could have spent my entire 8 weeks in Canada at this establishment I would have been content. The Hosts were fantastic & could answer any question we asked, if they had a problem they provided information on tap and made calls to verify anything we queried.
This establishment spoilt the rest of my trip.......not really, but I did love the atmosphere and presentation which I failed to find in any other abode be it hotel or B&B.
Thanks for a great time away from home.The photo taken as a momento & given to us, was an added bonus. Kerry & Neville Tarleton(Terranora. NSW Australia)

This is one of the best B&Bs I've stayed in. Quiet, well-appointed, comfortable, this is an outstanding place to stay.

The downstairs rooms enjoy a private entrance, a private lounge (with pool table, hot tub, and kitchenette facilities), and the rooms themselves are superb; comfortable and very well appointed.

Merril and Diane extend an extremely warm welcome - but are never intrusive. Breakfast is a joy, with a huge spread (too much for the likes of me!), and good conversation.

I heartily recommend Along River Ridge. It really is a home from home.
