I was looking for a weekend away to relax as I know how busy my workplace will be over the next few months. Terri was so friendly and welcoming and I loved her breakfasts. We stayed in the small cabin which is so cozy and comfortable with the fireplace burning and movies to watch. We hope to come back again.

We had an exceptionally busy Fall and Christmas preparation and we needed some time to relax. Terri and Marvin were very friendly and accommodating. The day we arrived was to be the end of a warm spell and everything was done so that we could get in our equestrian activities before the temperature fell to -20C. The cabin (Hitching Post)...

I have heard they are starting to hosting weddings andI believe it is the ideal spot for it.With Terri's eye for detail and awesome cooking...

I surprised my husband with a weekend get away, without our kids, over Thanksgiving weekend 2013. We had no expectations, except to relax and enjoy each others company. We did just that. However, we were blown away with everything about the Rocking R Guest Ranch. The cabin was comfy and cozy. We had the fire going from the time we...

I spent two nights at the Rocking R Guest Ranch and will definitely be back. My cabin was so clean and filled with little extras like popcorn and candy, real cream for my coffee, tea and coffee, brand new magazines and even videos. Not that I used them. I did use the hot tub, and went to pet the beautiful...

My husband and I were given 2 nights at the Rocking R as a wedding gift. We had no idea just how lovely this gift was. The ranch has a beautiful view of Eagle lake with the mountains in the distance and wonderfully landscaped surroundings. A bonus was the 9 horses in the fenced pasture outside our door. Nothing could...

What an unexpected surprise this place was ... hats off to our hosts Terri and Marv! This tranquil little spot is a short drive from Calgary and an even shorter drive to Strathmore but feels so far from all of the noise and chaos of everyday life. From the minute we entered our cozy but modern cabin we could want...

Terri and Marv are the perfect hosts, at this stunning location. The location is great, feels like it is deep in the country with stunning views, but a short drive to restaurants and shops.Every little touch has been thought of including arrival snacks, organic local bathroom products, and truly amazing breakfast at your cabin made and delivered by Terri.
