A fabulous place to stay near Calgary. What a find.

Conveniently near both Calgary and Okotoks, this fabulous guest house is a perfect place to relax after a day in the city - or in our case, after a long drive. Wonderful views, surrounded by countryside, deer passing by as you enjoy your breakfast or soak in the hot tub. Katherine looked after us beautifully, it was easy to relax and enjoy our days here. What a special place.

Thank you so much for your kind words. We enjoyed your visit with us. We hope to host you again sometime in the future.

Magical Weekend Away!!

There are no words to express my(our) gratitude to Kathryn and Allen the most kind, generous and loving house hosts. They have thought of every little detail and nothing was overlooked on our Magical and transformational women's weekend away. Misty Ridge Retreat B&B is the perfect place to host any small group getaway (8-15). We were treated like family and welcomed into their home with open arms.They happily allowed us take over as if we owned the home, and helped anyway they could. If there was anything we needed Kathryn and Allen magically made it appear or happen. Then, Breakfast was way more than we expected, as we've all been to other B&B's and here we felt as though we ordered breakfast from a 5 star restaurant!! You will not be disappointed. Furthermore, We were so grateful for Allen and Kathryn to share with us their gifts and spiritual knowledge around the well thought out fire pit atop turtle hill. There is no doubt magic surrounding this beautiful, well maintained and clean retreat B&B. We were so pleased with our weekend we've already booked in again for another magical weekend in June. It won't be the last either! On that note.......Kathryn, Allen, thank you from the depths of my heart and soul for all the work you do to ensure the highest standard of service and for your kind hearts and loving ways. You have made all the difference in many lives already. I look forward to the Misty Ridge Retreat B&B being a gathering place for for many more magical and life changing weekend getaways.Sincerely, Marie

Quick and Dirty getaway

We work a tonne, and so we decided to take off last minute for two days and these guys were sooo accommodating. Our little dogs enjoyed the company of Marvin...there adorable puppy. We enjoyed the quiet and serene nature of a lovely escape just outside the city. Breakfast by Allan was awesome! They even gifted us a bottle of wine when we clumsily dropped ours to its death on our way in for the first time! Lovely place to get away. Highly recommend!

Best place to stay in Calgary

We went to this place for the first night of our honeymoon and it was wonderful! The beds were extremely comfortable (perfect balance between firm and soft - it felt like memory foam...) and they are 2 twins put together. This was perfect because it meant that each bed had a remote. While my husband wanted to just lie flat, i could sit myself up a bit and have a light massage (YES these beds have a massage option - SO GOOD). I think what stunned us the most was the quality of service we received. Our bedroom had 2 extremely soft robes waiting for us, the bathroom had full sized quality products we could use to wash. One thing i noticed in particular was the drain - the drain was not a giant hole in the middle of the shower floor, this beautifully tiled shower had a very discreet drain at the very end of it which meant I couldn't lose my jewelry into it - a relief! The hottub was lovely and perfectly placed close to our room and underneath the night sky, giving us a gorgeous peaceful view of the country side and the stars. I think our favourite part was the morning - the kind and friendly family hosting us brought us breakfast in bed (as I found out had been organized by my husband)! They gave us a first course of a creamy yogurt dish with garnishes of a variety of fruit and a fantastic granola bark thing that is something I am definitely planning to search for at Costco. Our second course was several strips of thick bacon spiced with one of the owners special spice blend (which they gave us a small jar of at the end of our visit), along with several slices of homemade sourdough french toast which, as a foodie, I really enjoyed. And of course there was fresh coffee with cream and sugar and whipped cream. The owners then went out of there way for us when we said we had to leave early the next morning and told them they didn't have to worry about breakfast for us, and they offered to prepare us some of their sourdough bread for us to take on our trip! Side note: if you have little ones they also have a playground available. 5 stars for sure.

Warm and friendly!

I had such a wonderful and relaxing time at Misty Ridge. I was warmly welcomed by Allen and Kathryn and they were kind and considerate hosts. The view of the wildlife and nature from the main living space was phenomenal and I found that I could sit there for a long time just enjoying the view. My room was very comfortable, the adjustable beds were a treat and I slept like a baby! I will definitely be coming back again. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!

Fantastic spot! I came into Calgary for three days of business and it was such a pleasure staying at this spot. Incredibly peaceful and the hospitality is on par with a 5 star hotel. Lots of interesting wildlife on display. Will be back for sure. Thanks Kathryn and Allan for making my business trip in Calgary almost a mini-vacation...

Came to Calgary on business and stayed with Allen & Kathryn at their B&B. I found them to be great hosts and their B&B to be very comfortable. It was an easy commute to get downtown for meetings each day and coming back to the B&B was so much nicer then hanging out in a downtown hotel room. It was really cool watching the elk graze every morning and enjoying the quiet of the foothills. Definitely recommend their B&B to my friends and family. Thanks Allen & Kathryn

Had a wonderful restful time at this B&B. Our gracious hosts Allen & Kathryn made our stay very memorable ! There our plenty of things to see and do here just minutes from Calgary. Wildlife is abundant including elk and deer and many birds to watch. The market 5 min, away provides fresh vegetables and many other things. The learn and play for kids and adults alike is very interactive. Our breakfasts from omelets to French toast were amazing. The rooms and beds were awesome and we totally enjoyed our 4 day stay here. Shoes are a must if you want to do some hiking on the many trails to enjoy nature at it’s finest. Thanks again Allen and Kathryn for

Getaway & relax

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at misty ridge retreat. Kathryn was a charming & knowledgeable host. The location is a perfect quick getaway to enjoy nearby fly fishing, walks, x country ski or country markets. I loved picking some berries right on the property and watching the wildlife from the deck. A truly relaxing enjoyable bnb in any season. I’ve stayed at bnb all over the world and the breakfast here can’t be beat! If you are looking for a place to enjoy a relaxing day or two this is perfect and a stones throw from Calgary .
