Welcome to the Calgary Historic Bed and
Breakfast at Twin Gables, Calgary's only registered historic
bed and breakfast.
Built in 1910 and rated 5 Stars by Canada
Select, this fully restored Inner City historic bed and
breakfast home maintains the romance of a bygone age. The
elegance and richness of the past is alive with leaded stained
glass windows, hardwood floors, Tiffany lamps, pocket doors,
and antique furnishings. Walk to Downtown Business Center,
Telus Convention Centre, or Stampede Park.
As you enter, you will be overwhelmed by
the use of wood built into the design of this classic period
home, in which the ambiance of the Arts and Crafts movement is
reflected in every aspect. Run your hand over the fine
woodwork and massive wainscoting, and view the area through
leaded glass and beveled windows. The parlor is the perfect
place to relax in front of the fireplace with a good book from
the library, or enjoy conversations with other guests. You
can also watch television in the living room, or enjoy a cup
of tea in the solarium by the fountain over looking the
gardens and city views.
Unlike a large hotel, Twin Gables Bed and
Breakfast gives you a private entrance to gracious suites,
tastefully decorated and functional for today's lifestyle.
Three executive-style guest suites offer stunning city views
and all the comforts of home and then some. Comfortable beds,
fine linens, down duvets, antique furniture, and wardrobes are
accompanied by convenient amenities - off-street parking,
private in-room bathrooms, telephones, stocked refrigerators,
television, VCRs, computers, high-speed data ports, personal
care items, and air conditioning.
Start the day with a delicious full
breakfast served in the dining room or the sunny solarium, or
you can enjoy a generous continental breakfast in the comfort
of your private suite with the daily newspaper. Sample a plate
of sumptuous Belgian waffles, Eggs Benedict, or a specialty
omelet, complemented with homemade breads and other baked
goods, yogurt, a selection of cereals, and some freshly
squeezed orange juice. A beverage and snack center is also
Across from the Elbow River with miles of
pathways leading to parks and attractions, the Inn is an ideal
home base from which to hike, bike, and explore the area.
Terrific Calgary shopping and fine dining
on trendy 4th Street is just a few minutes away from the inn,
and the Calgary Stampede Grounds are just a 12-minute walk
away. The Great Rocky Mountains and the natural glories of
beautiful Banff National Park, just 75 miles from the Inn,
make for a wonderful day trip.
Experience the very best of Calgary
Historic Bed and Breakfast at Twin Gables, a fully functioning
Bed and Breakfast which offers a perfect blend of historical
authenticity and modern luxury... and it's all in downtown
