5 star foothills bed and breakfast - the ultimate calgary, alberta retreat
"I went for a retreat/workshop led by Allen & Kathryn Kessler, the hosts and owners of Misty Ridge Retreat B&B. Misty Ridge is located in the rolling foothills a bit southwest of Calgary and is a fantastic place to connect with nature. The bedrooms are sizeable (bigger than some hotel/motel rooms I've stayed in!) and have very comfortable beds which are adjustable by remote control. The dining room features large windows that offer a view of the foothills and wildlife. It's a fantastic place to relax."Read more Google reviews →
"I travel to Calgary on business regularily and I used to stay in a downtown hotel until I got an invite to stay at the Misty Ridge B&B. Now I book all my stays at Misty Ridge when I am in town. Allen and Kathryn who own the B&B are great hosts and make you feel very welcome. The B&B has all of the comforts of home plus an incredible view of the foot hills and the local wildlife. My company is also happy with this arrangement as this option is less expensive compared to downtown hotels."Read more Google reviews →
"Misty Ridge is an absolute paradise! Nestled in the rolling foothills, it has all the qualities of being in the country, and only a short drive from Calgary. Al and Kathryn are the most amazing and accommodating hosts, who went above and beyond to ensure our stay was nothing short of perfect! The stunning views, modern rooms, star-gazing from the hot tub, and the best ginger snaps on earth, were only a few of the many highlights of our stay, we even saw some elk crossing through the property!"Read more Google reviews →

"Misty Ridge was the perfect venue for our small wedding! Allen and Kathryn were gracious hosts who made every effort to make our family feel at home and create the right vibe for our special day. The venue features very comfortable themed rooms (nice beds!), spa-like bathrooms, absolutely stunning scenery and walking trails, an abundance of outdoor gathering spaces, and the truly magical “Turtle Hill” where our ceremony was held."
~ Luke Rosewood
"I recently led a retreat for 14 womxn at the Misty Ridge Retreat B & B. The beautiful outdoor scenery and the space they created for our yoga Practices were perfect for our group. Kathryn provided delicious morning meals that accommodated our various food allergies and it was evident that much care had gone into insuring that our retreat was a safe and positive experience. The on-site accommodation is comfortable, clean and beautiful and being in close proximity to Calgary, we were able to have students commute in to the retreat as well. This was a perfect setting, well enough removed from the city to properly relax but we'll within reach of everything we needed! Highly recommend and already booking for next year!"
