Although it was a business trip to Strathmore, 3 nights at The Rocking R was absolutely relaxing. Cozy cabins, serenity of the nature and friendly greeting from the horses were just comfortable and delightful for the travelers from South Korea. And Terri and Marv were warm and lovely with great hospitality. Terri's breakfasts were fabulous, too. The flavor of Devine...

We ALL loved it! Terri was very helpful when I called her to see if the venue would be a good fit for a 50th birthday weekend. She explained everything we could do and see in the area and booked for us! We drove from Edmonton and took the secondary highway from Red Deer to Strathmore and loved the scenery....

I just returned from a mini-retreat, along with 3 friends, at the Rockin' R that was second to none. Our goal was to play games and eat some good food while catching up with each other. The "Bunkhouse" cabin was the perfect answer and we were blown away by the ambiance of this rustic but refined luxurious little gem. The...

As repeat guests, I can only continue to recommend Rocking R in the highest, strongest possible terms. It is set in a beautiful spot, with a gorgeous view over the water to the mountains. Perfect for one of their fabulous four course meals served in your cabin. Tremendous breakfasts delivered flexibly to suite your activity level. As is the entire...

I am sorry that is was snowing and -9C on your wedding day. We have no control over the weather but we tried to do our best to ensure that your guests were warm and dry for the ceremony and the reception. We also have no control over the noise by-laws. Music has to be off by 11:30 and the...

My family and I just spent 3 nights at the Rocking R Guest Ranch and we had a perfect visit. Terri and Marv's Ranch is far enough away from Strathmore that you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but in reality it's a 10 minute drive to Starbucks and all of their retail neighbors. Our family moved into...

We stumbled upon the Ranch online as we searched for a romantic getaway close to Calgary. We stayed for a weekend and had such an amazing experience that we wanted to bring our kids there so we could share it with them.
