With so many things today being driven by mass production and automation, most of today's accommodations leave little to stir the blood and soul. If you ever find yourself contemplating what the Canadian dream of free land and a better life at the turn of the 19th century looked like, then the quaint, cozy, authentic setting of Ghostown Blues B&B can surround you with a taste of the craftsmanship and hard labour our ancestors built. It seems this connection is harder and harder to find in our over-fabricated, throwaway world of consumptive one-upmanship.
Please meet and enjoy the other guests around the campfire or on the veranda and enjoy the sense of community our unique accommodations afford.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does each accommodation have its own bathroom?
Our mission and goal is to provide the experience of a living museum of original, museum quality restorations, presented in a "Cowboy Chic" setting. Because our accommodations are actual original homesteads, and prairie architecture, we do not put restrooms in each one. As with most B&B's our restrooms are shared. Having said that, we have FOUR restrooms for our 9 accommodations, all within a few feet of the cabins and wagons.
Do you allow pets?
Sorry, we no longer accept pets. It doesn't matter what you dog weighs, how long he spends on your lap, or how well behaved. We have dogs onsite of our own and conflicts arise. We make zero exceptions. Thanks for understanding.
What is included?
All linens, towels and breakfast are included in our rates. We also supply enough firewood for a nice campfire, with additional wood available for a modest fee.
Is my credit card charged when I make a reservation?
No, the credit card information is just used to guarantee and hold the reservation. Settlement is done at checkout.
