If you want to truly experience Winnipeg then this is the place to be. The owners April and Diamond were away when I reached but they had everything arranged perfectly for me. Josh their housekeeper was ready and waiting for me when I arrived. He had a glass of juice ready for me and helped me carry my baggage to my room.
During the next 15 days, it was a marvellous experience staying there. It is just like your own home. Not once did I feel that I was in a B&B. It always felt like home. The rooms are huge and comfortable, there is every possible amenity provided, the owners were away but I had great conversations with their extremely intelligent son and their brilliant housekeeper Josh who is a wonderful person. I cannot thank them enough for their excellent hospitality and friendly nature.
The property is itself right on the Assiniboine river and you could practically walk out of the back yard and get onto the river. It is just so beautiful. It is a mere 2.5 Kilometres from Downtown and if you like walking you cannot get a better place to be. It is one of the few heritage properties and has a 150 year old history to it. The bookcases are lined with innumerable books to suit every interest and the drawing room has an excellent piano that you could possibly play.
The surroundings are pristine and very quiet, except the chirping of birds there is nothing to distract you. If you ever plan to be in Winnipeg this is where you have to stay. You have to really.
