Some Recent B&B Reviews…
Rustic Farm Home, Excellent Breakfast! Great Hostess!
Jana is a hard working lady, who goes beyond the normal to make you feel at home and welcome! The accommodations were quaint and very clean! Jana was very helpful in assisting with travel directions and route planning. All this after she fed us a top notch breakfast! Thank you Jana! I hope to return for another visit this summer season! Defenately I will be staying at Prairie Paradise Retreat again! See you soon!
The Last Straw B&B exceeded all of my expectations. Genuine hospitality, cozy accommodations and distinctive gourmet home cooking, served up in a unique straw-bale house on the shores of Lake Winnipeg, all made for a second-to-none experience. The view in this remote setting is spectacular! I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who wants a getaway.
Delicious Blueberry Pancakes
I had the opportunity to stay with Christine & Reinhard for a week while on a business trip to Winnipeg at the end of January. Reinhard gave me a tour of the house upon my arrival and showed me how to operate the elevator should I need it (very simple should one have mobility issues), main door access code, and we had a wonderful discussion about the home’s architecture and construction which I was very interested in.
The rooms are quiet, very clean, and comfortable, with comprehensive written instructions on how to operate the various TV functions.
Not being familiar with the city, a map and a list of nearby eateries was a most welcome touch to find in my room.
They welcomed me like family and we had the opportunity to converse on a variety of subjects over many delicious breakfasts.
Christine’s delicious blueberry pancakes (blueberries hand-picked earlier in the year) could not be equaled in the finest restaurant anywhere! A menu with multiple choices was presented to me in the evening for breakfast the next day…you will not be disappointed with any of the selections. They are all delicious. Breakfast was served in the dining room and a blazing fire in the wood stove greeted me each morning as I sat down. As I was the only guest that week, breakfast time was flexible to accommodate my schedule.
Off-street parking from a quiet street was straightforward and a plug-in was available for those non-tropical Winnipeg nights if needed. If you are returning in the evening keep an eye out for the deer that wander the area.
I will certainly stay here again when in Winnipeg. More gracious hosts will not found anywhere, and Aspen Woodlands B&B has my recommendation and endorsement. Thank You for a Great Stay!!

The atmosphere at Moon Gate was amazing! Soo relaxing…
When I say ‘experience’ I would share that my friends and I loved the home away from home that you provide. We loved the history that you shared, we loved the work and restoration, we loved how you decorated everything. We loved the little shop, Your view was amazing. The Reiki and Hot Stone Massage left us breathless, it was that good. The atmosphere and environment was so conducive to relaxation and enjoyment.
Amazing Hospitality…so very helpful.
We felt at home instantly with the warmth of your welcome. Breakfast was so special. It was lovely to talk about your travels and those of your other guests.
It was an very enjoyable stay. They are very friendly and helpful B & B hosts. The accommodations were spacious, private, clean, quiet. The breakfasts were delicious. I certainly look forward to my next stay.
We felt right at home!
Jana was a wonderful host and she made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We felt right at home because of her warm, easy going, friendly manner. Jana went the extra mile in more ways than one. The night we arrived, she drove us to the nearby village of Somerset and joined us for a special turkey dinner buffet being offered at one of the local restaurants. She shared a bottle of wine with us as we chatted together later, sharing stories. The choice of breakfast were amazing and all delicious and the rooms were lovely. Her home was charming with a character all its own. Her Day Spa would have been nice to treat ourselves to if we had had more time. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for an out of the way rural experience.
A little known gem in the Interlake!…
Skipper’s Lodge is very convenient location to Gimli & Lake Wpg, but also to Teulon and Stonewall. Bird lovers’ paradise! Tons of privacy, and such superb hosts.
The Loveliest of Times
We had such a great time staying at The Last Straw! They had no trouble accommodating my dairy allergy with large amazing nutritious meals. We really enjoyed snowshoeing on the lake and going for walks with Willow. The peaceful atmosphere and pleasant conversation are just what we needed to unwind for a weekend. Will definitely be booking again!
We arrived home safely. Our children said it was the best experience they have had since coming to Canada.
A Unique Experience
I spent a wonderful weekend at Prairie Paradise Retreat B&B & Spa. Jana Wise was the ultimate host preparing most wonderful meals and taking me on hikes and to explore the surroundings. If you would like a get away from the city without going too far and for a unique experience I highly recommend it 🙂
A home away from home (with treats!)
Freshly baked scones, gorgeous rooms, and art on the walls that deserves hang (and in some cases, does) in a museum exhibition. I could not have been happier or more comfortable staying at the 12th Street Studio. The proprietors are friendly and helpful, the location is off the beaten path but close to all the major attractions, and I was genuinely sorry to continue on to Winnipeg where I knew all that awaited me was a Fairmont Hotel (and that’s saying something).
“Whole Experience was Exceptional”
We very much enjoyed staying at the Aspen Woodlands Bed and Breakfast. The whole experience was exceptional. Everything about the beautifully finished bedroom with ensuite was very comfortable, including the bed. We appreciated the warm hospitality and the delicious breakfast. We highly recommend this B & B and will stay again should we be traveling to Winnipeg.

J’ai passé quelques jours à me ressourcer dans ce petit paradis. J’ai adoré le confort du gîte ainsi que la gentillesse des hôtes. Selkirk est une petite ville charmante. J’ai apprécié la propreté et le calme du gîte. Merci Laurel et Rob d’avoir pris le temps de parler avec moi dans ma langue. 🙂
