This acreage home is in a rural setting just west of the Calgary city limits. It is located less than 2 kms from the Trans Canada highway. The custom built home has modern rooms, with ensuite baths. It offers peace and quiet with a view to the foothills and mountains beyond. A warm breakfast and a smile give you a great start for your trip to Banff or a drive into Calgary.

By Chance Bed and Breakfast is a very beautiful home, modern, up to date, and immaculate. The hosts Richard and Heather are extremely nice and hospitable, and enjoy meeting and getting to know their guests. They’ll make you feel right at home. As others have mentioned the breakfasts are delicious. It is conveniently located just a minute or two away from the TransCanada Highway, and close to both Calgary and the Canadian Rockies, and also in the country so it is nice and quiet. Will definitely consider staying with them if we’re ever in the Calgary area again.

Quiet & Peaceful country home! We enjoyed the spacious comforts of the basement bedroom with Queen bed & ensuite bath along with a cozy sitting area that is equipped with table & chairs, mini fridge, microwave, coffee pot, kettle, toaster, not to mention cupboards fully stocked with dishes & utensils. I especially enjoyed cuddling up with inviting quilts & my book.
We couldn’t have asked for a better way to start our day with Hosts, Heather & Richard, preparing their fabulous full breakfasts & memorable conversations.
Heather & Richard are just the kindest people & we Thank Them for opening their home 🥰
We would definitely stay at this little Gem again!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heather and Richard's authentic Bed & Breakfast. The guest area is separate and private. It's clean, comfortable and well appointed. The downstairs area is spacious and has a private patio with lots of natural light. The best part was the delicious and varied big breakfast each morning! Heather and Richard are well travelled and interesting and we all enjoyed sharing stories. Their home has a relaxed country setting yet is close to shopping and an easy drive to downtown Calgary. We highly recommend!

Richard and Heather went out of their way to make our stay in Calgary so enjoyable. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and the breakfast was delicious and delightful. We normally don't write reviews but felt impressed to do so in this instance.

This is absolutely the greatest B&B. The room on the main floor has a very comfortable queen size bed with a private bathroom. On the lower floor 2 rooms share a bathroom. Each room has comfortable beds and nice bedding. Hosts Richard and Heather were welcoming and made the stay there memorable. Breakfast had many options and if you have any dietary issues they will deal with that. It is just 3 k off the Transcanada so convenient but quiet

Heather and Richard are fabulous hosts that making us feel welcome and at home. Breakfast is a culinary delight filled with entertainment and great conversation. My girlfriends and I come to "scrapbook" but come back for the amazing camaraderie that takes place over coffee in the mornings. Their home is close to the highway, minutes from the city, and the mountain views are spectacular.

I have spent several weeks between 2014 and, now, in 2015, at "By Chance B&B". As other reviews have said, it is a gem. The property quiet and conveniently situated just a few kilometres (and fewer miles) from the west side of Calgary. It has easy accessr via the TransCanada Highway to the city and to Banff and Canmore; and also to Stoney Trail and Calgary's International Airport.

This is a lovey home; that combines impeccable and sparkling cleanliness with a relaxing western charm. The rooms are spacious, the beds comfortable, the linens crisp and the amenities welll-thought out. It has magnificent views towards the Rockies from both the main and lower levels, and is designed to offer either privacy or opportunity for socializing.

The hosts, Heather and Richard, are warm, kind, funny, and interesting people who both have a knack for anticipating what will make their guests feel welcome and individually appreciated. They know the area very well, as only lifelong residents can and will ready help visitors plan their day trips - or direct them to the information sources they need.

Great choice if you are visiting the Calgary area.

Close to Calgary but "in the country" and a great view of the foothills and Rockies ,heading to Banff

The hosts, Heather and Richard, were very helpful and accommodating to my schedule. The breakfasts were delicious and Heather is most attentive to food allergies. Interesting conversations about our lives.

Comfy bed, very clean and a spacious sitting room downstairs with a guest kitchen if you want to keep your own food cold and prepare a lunch for your daily outing.

Highly recommended!

We are a family of 5, children ages 8, 11, 13. We had two rooms in the B&B with a beautiful large bathroom, sitting area and kitchenette. One room had a queen bed and cot. One room had two beautiful single beds. We were wonderfully comfortable. We wish we had more occasion to stay at this B&B. The hosts were kind and gracious and welcoming and helpful and made our stay spectacular. Rarely do I leave a place raving about it. Today, it is easy to rave about By Chance B&B. I give my highest recommendation to stay here.

Calgary23 contributions1 helpful vote
Thank you for your inquiry. The By Chance B&B is located in a rural setting about 20 kms (12 miles) from the University of Calgary campus. It would be about a 20 minute drive. As we are in a rural setting there is no public transportation. Please let us know if there is more information that we can provide. Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in the By Chance B&B. We serve breakfast and only have accommodation for up to six guests at our B&B. Thus we do not have the capability to host a wedding. Thank you again for your interest.
