We experienced dinner, an overnight stay, and breakfast at Rose Valley Lodge and it was fantastic all-around. The rustic cabin was very clean and cozy, the meal was absolutely delicious, the surroundings were serene, the animals were fun, and the hosts were very pleasant. The longer meal time allowed us to really enjoy all the flavours, as well as each... More

Deb showed us around and introduced us to her amazing animal friends, the nature is beautiful there, Markus is a great chef and an amazing host, the whole place has an amazing vibe and it's beautiful! The cottage we stayed in... More

There were a few of the items in the 5-course meal that I didn't like but I could overlook that if it didn't take so long between each course. Having to sit on wooden chairs for 3 hours was almost unbearable. Consequently, because of that, I won't be returning. It's unfortunate because it's very scenic, cozy and the staff are... More

My wife and I finally booked our overnight getaway at Rose Valley. What a great place, and great gift from a couple near and dear to us. We booked a few weeks ahead to have the opportunity to pick the dinner menu. If you are the first to book the evening, anyone else who makes reservations on the same evening... More

What a treasure! You are guaranteed the most special, relaxed evening imaginable! Food is outstanding and Marcus and Deborah are the most gracious hosts you could ever hope for. Take the time to visit-you'll be certain to return. I cannot say enough good things about our experience.

I wish I didn't have such a bad memory when it came to names because I just can't say enough good things about Markus and I believe his wife. When we pulled up she met us at our car and chatted with us in general just made us feel very welcome. I have really bad social anxiety so to make... More

As repeat visitors to Rose Valley we were again treated to an outstanding gastronomic feast on Friday night for our anniversary. Markus is easily the most talented chef in the region and his creations always delight us. On this evening our five course meal centred around a beef tenderloin entree but truth be told, I could make a meal out... More

We are by reservation only with one dinner sitting at 7:00 pm Thursday to Sunday. First reservation chooses the main entree for that evening. Experience a delectable 5-course meal in a quiet, intimate setting on secluded 440 acres of meadows, forest and ancient mountains. Make it a full getaway with an overnight stay in one of two log cabins available for rent.
