“Incredible place to stay and fantastic food and people”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had the pleasure of staying at Rocking R Guest Ranch in July, 2013 and I was absolutely amazed at this gem.

Just a short drive from Calgary, yet it felt like I was in a completely different world!

With the lake views, the lush trees, the immaculate cabins... and the great people. Terri was a gracious host, and incredible cook.

I highly recommend Rocking R Guest Ranch to anyone who wants to escape Calgary for a night or five... or for those looking for a beautiful place to get away from it all.

Highly recommended.

Exceeded all our expectations. Terri thinks of everything. Our cottage was immaculate. This place is a gem. Everyone in Calgary should visit the Ranch for a special occasion. The horseback riding was a lot of fun. The breakfasts were gourmet and the kids enjoyed all the treats which were supplied.

A wonderful gem just outside of Calgary! Beautiful scenery in a very relaxing setting. Terri was the ultimate host - very clean cabin, delicious breakfasts served in the cabin, extra touches to make the weekend special, and helpful advice on things to do and sights to see in the area. On Terri's suggestion we rode our bikes to a lovely cottage winery not too far away and then went to a dinner + theatre in Rosebud. the next day we went fly fishing on the Bow River. It was a great weekend. We'll definitely go again!

Everything was perfect. Loved the cabin; is was impeccable, clean, comfortable, relaxing and every amenity you could think of. Terri served the most remarkable breakfasts that you could imagine and arranged for a wonderful massage. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to get away from it all and not have to worry about anything as you are in great hands with Terri and Marvin. It is such a romantic place I wish I could stay there forever.

This has been a birthday to remember!!! - the view, breathtaking, the grounds, majestic (is this really the prairies?); the accommodation, 5 star, with every detail covered - right down to the fresh flowers in the bathroom! It is obvious that hosts Terri and Marvin have a passion for what they do and have created a little piece of heaven here on earth. The included breakfasts are "diamond fare" and with the well appointed kitchen and private barbecue it is possible to make your own gourmet meals. Don't want to cook? The Kinsmens can direct you to some nearby choices - ranging from fine dining, to dinner theatre, to casual eateries. You can walk or run along the newly restored canal for as many kilometres as you wish in the beautiful, tranquil countryside, relax on your own private deck and hot tub under a large willow sparkling with mini lights as you watch the sun set. You can even sit by an open fire in a setting that you'd swear was in the mountains! If you feel adventurous, sign up for riding lessons and go for a short ride or arrange a day trip to Kananaskis. Because I was pampering myself, I chose to book a therapeutic massage just steps away from my cabin door, which was professional and executed by a topnotch, registered therapist in a lovely room - a veritable oasis for the mind, body and soul:) I loved the entire experience and am leaving feeling refreshed, restored and very spoiled!!! The best part is it isn't far from home! I can't wait to come back to this first class bed and breakfast!! Priceless!!! - Dona K

We are so happy to have found this amazing little gem tucked in the prairies! We never would have thought that we would find such a serene getaway so close to our home in Calgary. It is very apparent the Terri and Marvin have spared no expense in putting the finishing touches on the property; Beautiful modern cabins, a hot tub situated perfectly outside to look onto the prairie and mountain views and amazing landscaping surrounding the cabins.

Terri was the perfect host for our weekend. She provided great recommendations for activities in the area (including an amazing dinner theatre near by and a fruit winery that sells its products all over Alberta including in the local Co-op liquor stores). And the service was better than we have ever received at a bed/breakfast or even a hotel! 5 star quality food, complimentary snacks and celebratory champaign for our anniversary. No detail has been overlooked.

We would definitely recommend the Ranch and are looking forward to going back again!

Room Tip: The are two cabins: one bachelor style suite and the second is a two bedroom.
