Val Marie is a delightful town and an amazing spot to settle when planning a Grasslands National Park adventure. Because of its size there are not many options for accommodation but we lucked out when staying at Sky Story BnB. The host Diana is delightful and informative and she added a sparkle to the area. Her kindness and sharing of the spirit of the destination was a big part of the joy. She is also an artist and we were able to enjoy seeing some of her work. A yoga spot in her home was a wonderful way to start the day and breakfast was delicious and homemade. Would stay again!
Diana was a very lovely and helpful host. She was helpful in promoting the attractions in the area. The studio accommodation was spacious and clean an needed some work on the outside. Breakfast was nutritious and fresh and tasty. A trip worth taking.
We enjoyed our stay. The house and our room was clean. Diana was a great host. Even before we got there she let us know what restaurants were open on Easter Monday. She gave us valuable info on the trails. The breakfast was delicious and nutritious. She gave us a tour of her painting studio. Beautiful paintings!
I had a fantastic stay at Sky Story! What a beautiful, peaceful space. The food was delicious and the beds were clean and comfortable. Diana was a great host, going above and beyond to meet my needs. She had lots of great recommendations for restaurants and attractions in the area. I can't wait to go back!
The Sky Story B&B is the perfect place to stay if you're visiting Grasslands National Park. Diana was the best host. My colleague and I arrived in Val Marie after the town restaurant and grocery store closed, and Diana made us a delicious home cooked meal, which we loved. Diana's place is beautiful space, complete with a yoga area, a spotless bathroom and the beds...wow..you will sleep like a baby. If you're looking for a home away from home, this is the place for you. Thank you, Diana and Joseph for being such great hosts! We hope to see you again soon!
Diana's house was a wonderful place to stay and recharge our batteries away from the city. Between her incredible home cooked breakfasts featuring local foods to her wealth of knowledge of the National Park, we had a great weekend. Everything was clean and cozy and exceeded our standards. I have an allergy to cats but her place was so tidy I didn't even notice the feline friends who also reside with her. She even was kind enough to share her recipes with me afterwards. Would love to stay here again if we are in the area.
This was a last minute trip that was well worth it. Room is clean and bed ever so comfortable. Diana was a kind and enjoyable host. She always went out of her way to ensure that we were as comfortable as possible. The day trip to the Grasslands along with Joseph was truly enjoyable and one we will remember for quite some time. It is a trip that we plan on taking again as there is just so much to take in. Look forward to taking in the stories from Joseph and great company of Diana. Add this experience to your bucket list and you won't regret it.
Diana’s place is small but cosy. As other guests have mentioned, the (spotless) bathroom is shared, but I believe all other accommodations in Val Marie also have shared facilities. Diana was a wonderful source of knowledge about the area and the park; her breakfasts are fantastic and she will pack them to go if you like. Highly recommended.
A comfortable B&B located in Val Marie, a village aptly called the gateway to the Grasslands. Cozy, tidy place with a delicious vegan breakfast. We loved Diana’s pancakes. Gorgeous night sky views short 10 minute drive outside the village.
Despite the restrictions, Diana was gracious to host our family of two adults and three kids. Our kids loved the cats! Diana is very knowledgeable of the Grasslands NP, which was very helpful for us to explore the park with ease. Diana & Joseph made our stay hard to forget: the bonfire, storytelling, tea & hot chocolate, and amazing breakfast made the stay unforgettable. The house is accessible and our beds were immaculately made. Although the house has only one bathroom, even for the amount of people there was never an issue! Thank you for letting us in and letting us learn about your journeys and passions!
