Staying with Susan and Rex was an absolute pleasure! I stayed for only three weeks, but it felt like home right away. Susan and Rex were incredibly kind and supportive, they felt like family. They are big on open communication, which I think is crucial in an environment like this. They are warm, inviting, hospitable, and great conversationalists! They also know when to give you space if you are the more introverted traveler. I have chronic migraines, and they were very understanding of this. My room was amazing, tonnes of storage space, comfy bed, down comforter, and soft sheets and pillows. The house is breezy and inviting. It is filled with Susan and Rex's incredible artwork, it is no exaggeration that they are talented artists! Very interesting people, I learned alot from them during my stay. They live healthy lifestyles which I admire and have learned from. Susan has a beautiful garden surrounding the house, and she offered her fresh produce throughout my stay. Close walk to Mount Royal University, I walked it every day and enjoyed it very much. Great quiet and beautiful community they live in as well. Highly recommended place to be!

Rex, my husband, and I enjoy sharing our positive, supportive, creative, artistic lifestyle with all who come to stay in our home.

Without leaving our home, through the eyes of our guests, we have experienced what life is like in China, Poland, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Korea, Germany, England, U.S.A. and Canada. Through our shared time together we have developed some very dear friendships.

We enjoy yoga, meditation, walking, biking, kayaking, hiking, plein air painting and picnics in the country. I love gardening and creating outdoor living spaces and as such we have a large flower and vegetable garden and various sitting areas.

We are both working artists and retired teachers and are rarely without a pencil or paintbrush in hand. We have our studios, office and bedroom on the lower level of the house where there is an additional bathroom and laundry room for use. My husband is a professional painter and his work and blog can been

We rent our our 3 main floor bedrooms to quiet, courteous individuals. The master bathroom, kitchen, dining room and living room are all shared spaces.
