Quiet Spot In The Country

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely little loft apartment above the garage in this country home. It is so quiet and has everything one needs to feel at home.

Beautiful setting and very gracious hosts

  • 5 of 5

Peggy and Gordon are such lovely hosts - they make you feel very welcome and respond quickly to all questions and requests. This is a beautiful home - very comfortably equipped with gorgeous views out the patio where we spent many hours enjoying the cool breeze. It is very clean and lovingly decorated. It has its own entrance - so although Peggy and Gordon are around - it feels more like you have the whole acreage to yourself - it's very peaceful and welcoming. Not that far out of Calgary - we would definitely come and stay here again when visiting Calgary! Thank you Peggy and Gordon for a lovely weekend!

Beautiful , peaceful and serene cottage !

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House Cottage is located in a beautiful, serene area of the foothills! It overlooks the city of Calgary to the North , from the sitting area and balcony . The south view , from the large bedroom and another balcony , is a large fenced meadow. A " story book " view! Very comfortable king bed. The kitchen is well stocked and the entire place is spotless ! The hosts are very kind and friendly! It's only a few minutes from Calgary and also only a short distance from the Saskatoon Berry Farm! We highly recommend it and hope to stay there again !
