This is a lovely location about 50 km (30 miles) East of Calgary easily within driving range to Calgary and the Rockies. It is very well run by Terri and her staff, with professional and friendly service and faboulous food. The cabin was luxurious and had very useful and decorative attributes.

My husband and I just returned from the most incredible vacation at the Rocking R Guest Ranch. Terri & Marv are the perfect hosts & go to great lengths to personalize your trip. They are so accomodating & the personalized care of their guests is second to none. We stayed at the Bunkhouse which is beautifully decorated & looks out over a lake so the view is fabulous. The beds were extremely comfortable & the bath has a soaking tub plus a walk in shower. Everything from bubble bath to spa robes & slippers are provided. There is a hot tub & spa & I enjoyed a wonderful massage while Marv took my husband out on an all day horseback ride in the mountains. Terri delivers gourmet breakfasts to your cabin and her culinary skills are incredible. This was the most relaxing, enjoyable, memorable experience we have encountered in many years of traveling.

As a result of changes in my wife's employment status this year, it was imperative that we find a way to unwind and relax after a hectic tax season. I discovered the Rocking R Guest Ranch through a local radio station promotion, and booked a two night stay early in May. I was pleased that we did not have to travel far, and yet the Rocking R is way far from the hustle and bustle of the Big City.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by Marv as we pulled into the yard. There was no question that this was a working ranch, but it was very clean and well organized. We went to the main house to meet Terri and were processed quickly and efficiently. Terry showed us to our cabin (the Hitchin' Post) and we were immediately impressed. The cabins have all the modern efficiencies with a ton of wonderfully rustic touches. We were able to watch our local junior hockey team on the satellite TV, then unwound in the spacious and modern hot tub only steps from our front door. Afterwards, we retired to a sumptious bed that was very comfortable for a restful night's sleep.

Day two saw Terry serving us a wonderful two course breakfast in our cabin. All I can say is "This lady can cook!!!!" Breakfast was full of elegant and special touches, like fresh fruit and baking, fresh juice and yogurt. The second course was amazing, featuring delicious french toast and bacon. And the coffee was fantastic! After breakfast, Marv took us out for a horseback ride. We had a great time! My wife had not been on a horse before, but Marv's patience and "horse sense" had her comfortable in no time. We had a great time on Doc and Julio, and Terri even took pictures of us to show our friends!

Afterwards, we enjoyed our relaxation massages with Terri's daughter, Kimberly. She is a RMT and did a wonderful job of releasing tension and tightened muscles. We vegged and read our books after Terri provided Champagne and OJ followed by chocolate dipped strawberries, then cooked our supper on the handy BBQ right outside our front door. Another soak in the hot tub, followed by a crackling fire in the fireplace. And again, retiring to bed in what can only be described as positively deliciously comfortable. What a wonderful day!

We were sad to leave Sunday morning, but we will definitely return. Terri and Marv are wonderful hosts, and the accomodations are second to none.

We had a wonderful tranquil 4 day stay for a work project. Everything was amazing - from the embroidered spa robes to a spacious and well outfitted kitchen. Every evening we watched the sunset over the lake while we were serenaded by the bird life. The well supplied wood stove creates a cozy warm up after a visit to the hot tub. Terri anticipates your every need and we still don't know how she managed to create the postcard vista of the Clydesdales grazing just outside our door.

Words cannot explain how amazing this place is! A hidden jewel in our own back yard, who knew. All of the prior reviews are true, the bar has been set very high, but our experience did not disappoint.

This was our Valentine weekend away and how perfect it was.... not one detail was overlooked, gourmet breakfasts served in the cabin, amazing view, chocolate, strawberries, champagne and so the list goes. I am an extremely particular person and I was impressed by the tremendous attention to detail. Terri organized the whole weekend, from massages to dinner reservations and when we returned there was a toasty fire waiting for us to snuggle up by. I'm sure she even had a hand in the weather, just perfect for a cozy afternoon by the fire reading or watching movies from her great selection of DVD's and books. The hospitality was that of a close friend, you felt comfortable and at home the moment you were greeted by Terri. If you like to be pampered this is the place to go, I know we will visit again.
