I surprised my other half with a romantic vacation at the Heartwood Inn.
We stayed in the pet friendly bungalow house. Though it wasn't very romantic, it was rustic and charming. Nothing fancy by any means.
The kitchen had cutlery, plates, glasses, an oven, full size fridge and a coffee maker. The bathroom was small but had a beautiful tub. It was clean for the most part ... our dog found a pair of someone else's boxers under the tub, we thought it was more funny than anything. There is also an iron and ironing board, supplied house coats, and slippers. Sleep quality was quite good, no house or road noise than kept us up all night or anything like that.
Lots of places to sleep, I believe they said it could sleep up to 6. Wifi in the house as well as satellite tv. The renovations were quite well done. We had our own parking stall and a huge yard with a fire pit to ourselves. 711 was right across the alley, which was very handy. The place over all was in a good location. Right in the middle of everything you would want to do in Drumheller.
I regret not making it over to the main house for a home cooked breakfast.
I also got a pedicure there and it was probably better than any I have got in Edmonton or Las Vegas. Again nothing fancy, a steel basin for a foot soaker etc... but oh my goodness the lady doing the pedicure was amazing. I would go again just for that in a heartbeat.
In summary, it was a lovely stay and I was so happy that I was able to bring my dogs along. I suggest that anyone planning to stay in Drumheller should consider staying at the Heartwood Inn.
