The silence around, the nice horses and riding, and don´t forget the good breakfast, made everything great. And at least Terri and Marv, so kind persons. I just can say, I will come back. I will never forget the... More

Terri and Marvin are the most genuine hosts we've encountered; their kindness towards our family was very heart felt. The accommodations were exceptional and the views were extraordinary. Words cannot describe the rolling prairie, the sound of content horses and the late day sun glittering off nearby Eagle Lake. Terri's breakfasts were delicious and provided the fuel to explore the...

We had a great time from the horseback riding, enjoying the beautiful scenery and laughing and joking with Marv to the delicious breakfasts and snacks prepared by Terri. The cabin has the modern country decor and charm that makes you just want to stay forever. Whether you look out the window across the pasture where the horses are grazing or... More

This place exceeded all expectations and the photos truly do not do justice to how lovely this place really is. Wonderful hospitality and customer service. Terri was very friendly and truly spoiled us. The homemade breakfasts were delicious and the perfect portion size.

To celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, we decided to visit the Rockies. We were advised by a friend to spend some time in Calgary before touring around the National Parks. Our friend, who is in a league of who own when it comes to scouting holiday accommodation, recommended the Rocking R. It was a given therefore that the location and... More

Everything from the landscaping to the views to the food to the rooms is done with great care and a high level of excellence. It's a wonderful getaway and we thoroughly enjoyed the Romantic Getaway package, totally worth every penny. :)

Our weekend at the quaint "Hitch 'n Post" cabin was, in a word, AMAZING! From the selection of movies & complimentary treats to the wood burning fireplace and absolutely delicious breakfasts delivered to our door, Terri's attention to detail and her charm was simply infectious.
