Carrie was wonderful - looking after all our needs. Room was well-appointed and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. We felt sorry for Carrie having to deal with so many cleaning regulations around Covid; her place was spotless! We will definitely be back next time we are in Fort Macleod!
We highly recommend this B&B. We've stayed at many B&B's over the years, and this is one of the best. Our rooms were clean, beds very comfortable, and breakfasts delicious and expertly prepared. Many thoughtful touches, such as a variety of soaps and lotions to choose from, a host of reading materials, and providing a fridge, microwave, TV, etc. for the exclusive use of guests. Carrie is a friendly and likeable person, and made us feel welcome.
Ideally situated and comfy bed and breakfast near to the centre of Fort Macleod. If you want to visit the Historic Fort or the preserved main street with its historic buidings, you can easily leave the car at the B&B and walk. Carry does a mean breakfast and is very welcoming.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Fort Macleod! There are a few hotels and motels there but they are, in my opinion, runned down. I have stayed in many B&B's throughout my years of travel and Carry Me Away is one of the best! Carrie and her parents are the most down to earth and genuine people I have ever met. Carrie puts alot of love and care into her home, the B&B and her gardens and it is evident that love and care is involved. Your tummy will know! I had the whole floor to myself! Everything you need is there and bonus is there is a bathtub! Yes there is shower as well. What you get; Privacy of the bottom floor that has a living areas, with TV (many channels), free Wi-fi, there is small fridge, toaster, toaster oven, kettle. Many sitting options between couches and sofa chairs and there is a rocking chair for children. Plenty of toys for both kids and adults. Puzzles, games, a slew of memorabilia! They have a history of horse racing and so there is alot of horse memorabilia of the good old days of horse racing. So many books. Oh and if you like sailing and tall ships then you would love the room I stayed in. The bed was so comfortable! I slept like a baby. They graciously loaned me a cycle! I had so much fun. The breakfast is absolutely delicious with a flexible menu and mostly organic foods some coming from their own garden. Fresh picked and on your plate and you can feel the love Carrie puts into her garden. If you run out of toiletries she has whatever you need and more! They are very accommodating, flexible and aim to please. If you like church there is a lovely one just 1 block away. Wonderful congregation. There are other churches in Fort Macleod but I was happy...very happy with Sundays sermon. For $75...best bang for your buck! It deserves 10/10 rating. I stayed 5 days 4 nights and would not stay anywhere else if I ever find myself back in Fort Macleod. I highly recommend this B&B.…
We were going to Southwestern Alberta to see the RCMP fort and Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump. So we needed a place to stay close to both. Well, we found a gem. The B&B was easy to find and the outside had beautiful gardens. The bedroom was private and comfortable with a bathroom across the hall. A highlight was the breakfast we had before leaving. Lots of fruit, bacon, eggs, toast. Our Host, Carrie, was very friendly and helped us with our trip. Overall a very good place to stay and we will stay again if we are down that way.
Carrie is the friendly host of a good bed and breakfast in Fort MacLeod, located in a quiet residential area.The room was fine, and so was the bedroom. There's a wonderful 'living' full of books and information on the West, the prairies, the settlers, horses and so on. You get the use of a refrigerator and coffee and tea facilities. The breakfast was wonderful and the conversation likewise. I was on my way from Calgary to Glacier Montana and 'Carry me Away' was a great stop in between. Recommended!
Take a lengthy trip anywhere, and you're bound to come across at least one place -- whether it's somewhere to stay, somewhere to eat, or something to do -- that makes you say, 'Wow, I'm really glad I found this place.' On this 17-day trip around Alberta, Carry Me Away became that place for me. Gorgeous home, run primarily by daughter Carrie, with assistance from Mom & Dad while she's at her day job. My room was decorated in a maritime theme, but the rest of the downstairs was mostly horse racing memorabilia, as both mom and daughter have been involved in that industry. Even if you're not a big horse racing fan, it's fun to look at those things, and to hear about Carrie's experiences. I happened to be the only guest both nights I was there, so had the whole downstairs to myself. The first thing I saw upon going into my room was a menu of choices for hot breakfast. First time I ever saw one of those at at B&B, and I've stayed at several. A big bonus here for me: By the time I arrived, I was on Day 9 of a 17-day trip around Alberta. So I asked Judy (the mom) if it was possible to add another $10 or $12 to my bill for the chance to do a load of laundry. She said I absolutely could do some laundry, and she didn't want to charge me anything for it. ("We're travelers, too -- we have to do laundry," she said. I still tucked in some extra cash when I checked out; I was so appreciative of being able to take care of that one task and not have to worry about it for the final eight days.) One FYI: This is a cash-only B&B, and they will make sure you are aware of that at the time you book so you can be prepared in that regard. Slept great both nights, bathroom was perfect, and breakfast was awesome -- French toast and sausage the first morning; scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast the next, with fresh fruit and plenty of OJ both mornings, and good conversation with Carrie. You could drive into town if you want to. But if you can, just walk the several blocks, and that includes the trek over to the Fort Museum. The streets -- even Main Street -- are so quiet, in part because most everyplace is closed by 5:30, save for a couple restaurants and the Empress Theatre. The Fort Museum is well worth a full morning or afternoon. The Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump national historic site is about half an hour's drive away. I was able to do both in one day (the fort in the morning, buffalo jump in the afternoon) and didn't feel rushed at all. I even had time to poke into a couple of the antique shops. If you're arriving in town in the afternoon or evening, allow yourself two nights. If you see the buffalo jump and then the fort on your way there(if arriving from the north, give yourself at least one night's stay before heading on to your next stop. Either way, Carry Me Away is the ideal place to spend that night or two. (Check out the gorgeous coffee table-style photo book of Canada, coast-to-coast.)…
