This is a great place to stay. The hosts David and Holly and their son Oscar made me feel very welcome and we had some nice chats about things artistic. The room was spotlessly clean and really comfortable. As well as the room there was a dining/sitting room area with fridge and TV which was handy. Most of the rooms have original paintings and prints by David on the walls, which is a real treat for art lovers. Holly provides really delicious cooked breakfasts over the weekend and more basic but still plentiful fare during the week. Overall I would be happy to recommend this place to anyone.
After my extended stay at the Artist's Bed and Breakfast in May, I wished I could have stayed for the rest of the summer. The accommodations are just beautiful, and my hosts are a delight. I could not have asked for a better location. The peaceful and lovely neighbourhood, and the short 6 minute walk to the Canyon Meadows LRT station made my stay enjoyable well beyond anything I could have hoped for. I will most definitely call David and Holly for future stays in Calgary.
This is our first review of any place we have stayed. We feel compelled to write this because we thought the Artist's B&B was awesome! The continental breakfast was homemade, fresh, yummy and plentiful. Dave and Holly are excellent hosts..........very thoughtful and accommodating. We would stay again and again.

DO NOT MISS THE BREAKFAST!! Yum!! I've stayed here for several years now, and find it incredibly practical place to stay....it is close to everything! It is an old house so it does have it's minor little issues which are easy to overlook when you've got comfort, and ease and a top notch breakfast!
We came to enjoy Spruce Meadows Masters Event, and feel so fortunate to have found Artist's B&B. Holly and David are wonderful hosts, who look after you better than any hotel! The food is fantastic (local, fresh, quality), the comfort of the linens is top notch, and the white towelling bathrobes an added bonus. I could rave on for a while yet, but best you just go and see for yourself!!
Dave and Holly were excellent hosts. They recommened some local restaurants for us to dine at and made themselves available for any questions we had about visiting Calgary. The breakfast was both delicious and healthy. We enjoyed our stay at this B&B and would definitely recommend it to family and friends!
We enjoyed our stay with Bruce and Pat very much. They were wonderful hosts. We would stay there again for sure. The food was wonderful and the conversation so enjoyable we had to tear ourselves away to get on with our plans. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we were made to feel very welcome. D & P
Holly and David provided a great home away from home for our five night stay in May. The location was great, in a quiet residential area. It was within walking distance to the C Train and to the Fish Creek Provincial Park trail system. We enjoyed the breakfast treats provided by Holly - chocolate chip muffins, phyllo burritos etc. and David's original artwork. We highly recommend Artist's Bed and Breakfast.
We spent one night at the Artist's B&B recently while visiting family in Calgary. The room was pleasant, clean and had a wonderful ensuite bath with a great shower. Nice common area for relaxing. Breakfast was delicious and even included a gluten free hot dish, even though they didn't find out we required something special until after we arrived. Excellent location for central and south Calgary, easy to find, nice and quiet though right off a main thoroughfare. We will definitely stay with Holly and David again the next time we are in Calgary!
We had a wonderful stay here at Thanksgiving. The breakfasts were great and got better every day for the 3 days we were there. They are very friendly, but not intrusive. They graciously allowed us the use of their patio to get together with our family that were visiting for my dad's 90th birthday. My sister was initially a little concerned that the rooms were in the basement, but warmed to their warmth and bright windows. We had a wonderful walk. Just minutes from their front door to Fish Creek Park A great place to stay in Calgary.
The Artist's Bed and Breakfast is in a great location near Fish Creek Park. Endless hiking/biking trails abound. There are also some excellent restaurants in the area (try the Ranche at Fish Creek) and if you enjoy shopping, the nearby mall has everything. David and Holly have thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable. From the spotless cozy rooms, fresh flowers, amazing art work, spacious common area and wonderful breakfasts you won't be dissapointed! They are great hosts who care how your stay goes but give you as much privacy as you need. We would much rather stay here when visiting Calgary than a hotel any day!
My husband and I stayed for a night as we were biking in the city, and everything about the B&B was exceptional. The value can't be beat anywhere else, the food was absolutely amazing, and the room itself was quaint, comfy, and quiet. We will definitely be back:)
My mother-in-law has been staying with Deanne on her visits to Calgary for 10 years and after spending two nights at River Wynde I now see why! The adorable charm was only exceeded by the sumptuous breakfasts and the warm, inviting company of Deanne. She was there when we wanted to chat and ask questions and quietly disappeared when we didn't! We were walking distance from the train, grocery store, dining, parks and the hustle and bustle of downtown Calgary! Not only was this my first visit to Canada but my first B&B experience. Deanne sets a high bar! Thank you for being such a knowledgeable hostess. You made our visit so very nice! Now we feel like we have a good friend to stay with the next time we visit Calgary and we will be back!
What a wonderful little gem - I was afraid it was going to be too far out, location wise, but it was very handy. I was able to use the C-Train to connect handily to where I needed to go. The rooms are charming and very livable and clean. The service was perfectly on the line: attentive but not imposing. Overall, a very sophistocated B/B - I don't think they have been open very long but you would never know it. This is a winner!
If you want a five-star stay in Calgary without the price tag, then the Artist's Bed and Breakfast is perfect for you. Everything from the well- styled, clean and comfortable room (where the little things are thought of) to the delicious breakfast (all fresh, high quality local produce) is impeccable, thanks to hosts David and Holly who couldn't have been more kind and hospitable - even inviting us to Thanksgiving lunch! We can't recommend this place highly enough. We had a wonderful stay. Will definitely return if we get a chance to come back to Calgary.
The Artist's Bed and Breakfast was a treat to stay at. Very Clean. Very refreshing. Very good food. Very good sleep. David and Holly are excellent hosts. Wish we would have been there longer!
Calgary est la plus grande ville de l'Alberta qui est une province du Canada. Elle se situe à environ 80 km à l'est des montagnes Rocheuses.
La ville de Calgary est réputée pour les sports d'hiver et l'écotourisme, mais il est possible d’y séjourner pour s’adonner également à toutes sortes d’autres activités, et ce tout au long de l’année. Les bed & breakfasts à Calgary sont nombreux et restent la meilleure façon de séjourner dans la ville. Calgary ayant accueilli les jeux olympiques en 1988, vous serez certainement tenté (e) de visiter les installations olympiques. Sportifs ou pas, l’on apprécie toujours de se rendre sur ces lieux qui ont été foulés par les plus grands athlètes mondiaux. L’on peut également le faire au Canada dans les villes de Montréal et de Vancouver.
Côté festivités, Calgary ne manque de rien et de nombreux événements s’y succèdent tout au long de l’année : le Stampede (en juillet), le Folk Music Festival, le Lilac Festival, le GlobalFest, l’Expo Latino (au mois d’août) et le Carifest. On ne s’ennuie jamais à Calgary! Prévoyez de réserver une chambre d’hôte à Calgary pour pouvoir profiter de tous ces divertissements. En soirée, une petite escapade dans le « Red Mile » vous permettra de goûter à la vie nocturne de Calgary.
Si vous n’avez pas trop le vertige, montez tout en haut de la tour de Calgary pour admirer la ville depuis les 190 mètres de cet édifice. Rassurez-vous, il y a des ascenseurs qui effectuent la montée en exactement 62 secondes. Ouf! Il ne faut décidément pas avoir peur des hauteurs lorsque l’on visite Calgary puisque dans le centre-ville, vous serez invité(e) à emprunter le « pedway ». C’est un réseau de passerelles qui s’étire sur 15 kilomètres et qui permet de relier les principaux édifices de la ville. Bonne promenade aérienne.
Toutes ces émotions vous auront certainement ouvert l’appétit. Dirigez-vous alors vers le Calgary Farmers Market où vous trouverez toutes sortes de produits agroalimentaires frais.
Pour les amateurs d’histoire, une petite halte au Fort Calgary les informera sur la ville et les événements marquants de son passé.
En terminant, sachez que Calgary est l’une des villes les plus ensoleillées du Canda. N’attendez pas plus longtemps. Planifiez votre séjour à Calgary!
