“Great value and location”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Just spent one night here and enjoyed the great location. Very close to the town and supermarket.
Doug spoke about the area and his travels, communal lounge is nice as you can chat to other guests. Shared bathroom went with our room but worked as only there for one night. Clean and tidy.

Room Tip: Not sure how different they are. Would be good to have own en suite.

I spent two nights at Seldom In while on vacation and visiting the Jasper area for hiking. Sherrill and Doug are very gracious hosts. Both were more than willing to recommend hikes and places to eat. The room was comfortable and adequate. I would stay again when visiting the Jasper area.

We chose the Seldom In Guest House from reading Trip Advisor reviews and it lived up to the reviews. Sherrill is a welcoming and friendly host. She is incredabily knowledgable about the local area - we followed her advice for dinner and for hiking the next day. We had a double room on the first floor and we happily shared the common bathroom on the same floor. The shared guest fridge was a welcome and useful touch. We also had free run of the living room and kitchen where we cooked our own breakfast - which we were fine with (and is why this guest house has affordable prices). Would love to come back.

My friend and I just returned from our trip to the Rockies. We were so glad that we booked our stays in Jasper at Doug and Sherrill's. The house is immaculate. The beds are comfy. And most important of all, Doug and Sherrill are such lovely people. It is so obvious that they love the mountains and the parks and are proud to share their knowledge with us travelers. Sherrill would help us plan our days based on our interest. Depending on our experience and physical ability, she would suggest different activities. Because of their recommendations, we had the best time of our life there in Jasper. The views were breathtakingly beautiful and the hikes were challenging and rewarding. I would go back and stay at their place without missing a beat.

So glad we found accommodations at Seldom In Guest House! Added bonus to stay with two great people who know the park and surrounding area, and are such warm and welcoming hosts.
Thank you Doug and Sherrill.

What a host!!! Doug and Sherrill will never let you feel that you are away from your home!!! Not for a moment!!! As part of the planning, I did some research online for B & B in Jasper and I came across all the excellent reviews on “Seldom in Guest House”. And that leads me to book that place for the Canada Day Long Weekend. What all the reviewers had said on the review page about the “Seldom in Guest House” are all true and crosses all my expectation. Moreover, Sherrill and Doug are experience forest ranger and they know all the trails and scenic places of Jasper. They are the two excellent guide for Jasper that we got as a bonus. We came late but Doug was there to welcome us and after settle down, he showed us where we should go and he help us made a plan for next two days. One of the attractions of this guest house is the indoor plants that Sherrill take care very passionately. The outdoor plants are great too, specially the lupine. The music skill of Doug will definitely charm anybody after the hectic day of sightseeing. There are two other individual we have come across in that guest house. They are Hisa and Nana, the Seldom In helpers. These two Japanese girls are just blended with the quality of the main host of the house. Besides keeping the house clean, they share candidly their experience of vast continental travel with us and we too were delighted to get a glimpse of the Japanese culture right at the heart of the Jasper. Regarding the facilities, the guest house got a nice clean kitchen with the entire necessary utensil available. The guest house provides hot coffee for free and we made our own food. The wash room provides enough clean towels as we have seen in any other big hotels. Bed rooms are nice and clean too. There was an extra big freeze in the up-stair where guests can store their food. The main shopping area of the Jasper town is 5 minutes’ walk from the guest house but astonishingly the area is very quiet. I will definitely stay in this guest house on my next visit to Jasper. Thank you Sherrill and Doug for being such a great host!!!!

Room Tip: Book your room well ahead or you will be disappointed as it seems like never get unoccupied.

Lovely home, very experienced hosts, great location within 1-2 blocks of town, clean comfortable accommodations PLUS first-rate guidance on activities to do in the area, a folkie sing-a-long with guests and friends on acoustic guitars, a bottle of red wine, great conversation, interesting people -- what more could you want?! They do not serve breakfast, but they do have coffee and tea available, a refrigerator for guests, and full use of the kitchen (except for the stove). Sherrill and Doug are terrific and we felt very fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay with them for 2 nights. We left wanting more!
