We had an amazing little getaway at Valentines to this little place right outside our town. It was a great way to disconnect from the world and just unwind. The hot tub was perfect for our evening and although we did not take all they had to offer we could see it being so much fun. We had massages right... More

Our stay at the Ranch was just what we needed for a weekend out of the city. The hot tub and camp fire were a perfect way to relax. It's really quiet and peaceful out there, only wish it could have been longer.

We were looking for a quiet peaceful weekend retreat to de-stress and we found it! We immediately felt welcomed and very pampered. Terry made sure we had everything we needed. The breakfasts were excellent and the bed was very comfortable, the cabin was impeccable. We missed the opportunity to catch a sunset but we did relax in the hot tub... More

Terry and Marv were perfect hosts to us in July 2015. The property is modern and immaculate with an authentic country ranch atmosphere. The breakfasts outstanding and we were able to barbeque on the deck in the evenings. The mountain trail ride was a highlight for the scenery, the beautiful animals and the total peace of the wilderness. We enjoyed... More

Cozy cabins but with very nice high end finishes. The hosts were outstanding! Providing delicious breakfasts, and arranging off sites events perfectly! The site is quiet, with horses noses to pet, gorgeous views and quiet to soak in. But with plenty of activities if you want to ride, have a massage, dip in the hot tub, or sit around a... More

The Rocking R guest ranch is absolutely great. Terri and Marv and lovely hosts and the Cabins are totally beautiful. Stepping outside your cabin and looking out onto a field of horses, which you can ride out on, is an added bonus. We travelled with a one year old and they thought of everything, down to the bathtub toys for... More

Our friends hosted their outdoor wedding and tented reception onsite in September 2015 at the Rocking R Guest Ranch. We attended as guests and can speak to the grounds and reception area (we didn't stay in the cabins). This venue is a very large and beautiful ranch, is secluded and private. Very nice western feel to it with horses, fences,... More

We decided to try a getaway from Calgary that didn't involve Banff or Canmore. The Rocking R Guest Ranch is less than an hour's drive east of Calgary. We had a very enjoyable stay at a cabin overlooking a lake with the Rocky Mountains in the background and horse grazing nearby. This place is the living definition of picturesque. Wished... More

We recently had our wedding at Rocking R Ranch, and it was beyond incredible!! I had always dreamed of getting married in the Rockies, but our venue fell through last minute and Rocking R Ranch was thankfully available on the day we wanted it. After our wedding, my husband and I, and all our relatives, truly believe that Rocking R... More
