Reviews for Aspen Woodlands B&B:
I spent five nights here September 28-October 2, 2020 and felt very well protected by COVID-19 protocols the owners have in place. The entire house is served by continuously running air exchange for good ventilation. The second floor is only used for guests, with private doors to two suites and ensuite accessible bathrooms. I used the elevator to prevent contact with stair railings. Breakfast is served in the lobby on that floor and the hosts wear masks to do so. There is beverage equipment and a small frig for guest use. All interactions have everyone wearing masks or are at distance. Disinfection of all surfaces touched is routine. The views from my bedroom were peaceful. The hosts are very welcoming. Highly recommended!
By Far the Best B&B in Canada
If you are looking for a old Victorian home that most call quaint, with a small bathroom, a bed with a bit of a sag, and a basic breakfast Aspen Woodlands is NOT for you!
If you are looking for a gorgeous place, hand built with quality work, an unique staircase, massive rooms with great bathrooms and breakfasts to die for then Aspen Woodlands IS for you.
You can walk to aspen woodlands–they are across the street from the Aspen Woodlands! You can walk to Assiniboine Zoo. You can walk to Assiniboine Park. You can walk to decent restaurants.
It’s an east drive to the sites downtown. An easy drive to the Mint. And it is a simple, almost direct drive, to and from the airport.
Reinhard and Christine are wonderful hosts.
Don’t think another thought, don’t look at other places, just book at Aspen Woodlands and enjoy probably the best bed and breakfast in Canada.
Will Recommend Your B&B
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to lively, liveable Winnipeg, with all its history, amenities and attractions.
A special highlight was our stay at Aspen Woodlands Bed and Breakfast ….a stunning, comfortable modern home close to parks, bike trails and hubs. Best of all was the warm welcome provided by our hosts, Christine and Reinhard …. it’s hard to imagine kinder or more helpful people. Their suggestions and directions on exploring the city were useful and rewarding.
And as for the breakfasts …… superb! Christine, you rate 5 Michelin stars!
I hope our paths cross again; meanwhile, we will recommend Aspen Woodlands Bed and Breakfast to any potential Winnipeg travellers.
Great place for a family stay
We were in Winnipeg for four days, and needed a place that would accept three adults and one toddler. We made a perfect choice. Our hosts were caring, aware, and attentive as needed (and not intrusive). The food was excellent – lots of choices for breakfast! The rooms were pristine and large, and were cleaned daily (really – a lot of work for our hosts!). The location was quiet, and, despite its location, close to where we needed to go while in Winnipeg.
I would highly recommend this B&B for anyone who would rather be in a Bed and Breakfast than in a hotel.
Feels Like a Country Road
As a resident of a large city, I’m so accustomed to living in close quarters. It has been such a pleasure to spend one week at Aspen Woodlands Bed and Breakfast. Very clean and spacious, quiet and comforting, it gave me just what I needed. The B&B faces an urban forest & feels like a country road although it is in the city. Sometimes at night you will see deer crossing. The owners, Christine and Reinhard, couldn’t be more amiable and hospitable. The breakfasts are beyond description, so absolutely delicious. The only challenging moment is the point of departure, for it feels impossible to leave. I envision returning to Aspen Woodlands B&B – a nurturing escape. In short, this place is highly recommended! 5 stars!
See You Again – Hopefully Soon!
Dear Christine and Reinhard,
Thank you so much for your hospitality and thoughtfulness.
We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful B&B.
We will see you again – hopefully soon!
Christine and Reinhard,
Thank you so much for being such wonderful hosts. The surroundings were beatiful and the breakfasts amazing!
Blessings to you as you continue to serve others.

Wir haben bei Euch unseren Kanada-Familienurlaub verbracht und waren sehr erfreut über die schöne und toll ausgestattete Unterkunft.
Ganz besonders war jedoch das Frühstück, das wir jeden Abend neu zusammenstellen konnten.
Auch die freundliche Art und Hilfsbereitschaft, z.B. beim Aussuchen von Ausflügen hat uns sehr gefallen.
Die Zeit ging sehr schnell vorbei, wir wären gerne länger geblieben.
Wir waren angenehm überrascht, daß wir wir uns auch so gut auf Deutsch unterhalten konnten.
Viele liebe Grüße.
We spent our Canadian family vacation with you and were very happy with the nicely appointed accommodations.
Breakfast was special – we could select from menu choices each day prior.
In addition, we were very pleased with the friendly manner and willingness to assist us – for example – in picking outings.
The time elapsed quickly; we would like to have stayed longer.
We pleasantly were surprised at how well we could converse in German.
We Give the B&B 5 Stars!
Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. The choices for breakfast were fantastic, something for everyone, beautifully presented in a pleasant, sunny dining room.
They spend time ensuring that we had maps and directions to meet our touring needs.
We give the B&B 5 stars.
Thank you Reinhard and Christine for sharing your home with us during our visit.
Charming, Thoughtful Hosts with an Excellent B&B
My husband and I much enjoyed two nights’ accommodation and two breakfasts with Christine and Reinhard in their beautiful, newly built, well-planned, immaculate home. We arrived on a Saturday after visiting the nearby Assiniboine Park Zoo. At a side entrance, Reinhard and his youngest granddaughter welcomed us. Reinhard then explained the code entry system to us so we could return whenever we wished that evening. We accessed their self-contained, well-lit, very quiet Gardenview suite on the second floor via an impressive maple staircase but could have used a nearby lift. We then chose selections from their breakfast menu before leaving to see a play downtown.
Christine’s culinary expertise was much in evidence the next two mornings. We heartily recommend the cheese blintzes but really, you can’t go wrong with any of the delightful choices! When we returned relatively late on Sunday evening, our hard-working hosts were still in the kitchen. Our lengthy conversation with them then felt like a conversation with long-term friends so added to the overall pleasure of our visit.
We will certainly return here on our next trip to Winnipeg!
5 Stars – One-of-a-Kind Experience
The description “bed and breakfast” does not do justice to the indulgent sanctuary you will discover if you cross the threshold of Aspen Woodlands B&B. This respite offers a one-of-a-kind experience. I felt transported into a calm, restorative environment. The owner of the B&B – Reinhard and Christine – are so welcoming, friendly, while also respecting the guest’s need for privacy.
The home faces the tranquil Assiniboine Forest where from time to time, you will encounter deer at dusk. The breakfasts are individualized from a selection of healthy and delicious meals. The home is immaculately clean – hardwood floors throughout. The beds are phenomenally comfortable, and dressed with silk duvets that are so light as to be barely noticeable, and yet warming in the winter and cooling in the summer. I have resided here 3 times so far, and I would never consider staying at a Winnipeg hotel after such an outstanding stay at Aspen Woodlands. If Aspen Woodlands B&B were replicated around the globe, I wouldn’t check into a hotel ever again. I entered this experience sight unseen.
I hope this review helps you feel confident and secure in making Aspen Woodlands B&B your “go to” place when you take your next trip to Winnipeg
Gracious hospitality and excellent accommodations!
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate an anniversary and enjoyed it so much! Reinhard and Christine are such gracious hosts and went the extra mile to provide information and make our stay comfortable and pleasant. The accommodations are exceptional in terms of cleanliness, tasteful decor, views from the large windows and privacy. We also enjoyed the hot tub and delicious, beautifully presented breakfast. We can highly recommend this B&B!
Will stay there again next time
I just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful stay at your B&B. My sister and I really enjoyed our stay at Aspen Woodlands. Some of our comments are as follows:
Clean, comfortable and lovely accommodations with incredibly delicious breakfasts.
Reinhard and Christine are lovely hosts that go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at home. We will stay there again next time we are visiting Winnipeg.

I hope to see you next year and in the meantime. Safe travels, wishing you a bountiful harvest from your garden, and all the best to your family.

The Best Place to Stay in Winnipeg
We were delighted to find something rare — truly handicapped-accessible accommodations with shower seating, adjustable and hand-held showerheads, grab bars and even an elevator to the other floors in the house. The house is wonderfully airy and immaculate. It is accompanied by a large back yard complete with a kitchen garden, the produce of which often finds it way to breakfasts that are to die for.
The house is located directly across the street from Assiniboine Forest and within bicycling distance to the entrance to Assiniboine Park and Zoo. Since we were visiting Winnipeg for the Canada 150 celebrations at the Park this was ideal.
To top it all off Reinhard and Christine are fabulous hosts. In addition to those scrumptious breakfasts they helped us with our luggage, provided a list of nearby restaurants, happily described the points of interest in a town they clearly love, were able to work with US currency and even supplied ginger ale to help alleviate an upset stomach.
As far as we are concerned, Aspen Woodlands is the best place to stay in Winnipeg.
“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.

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!!
