Myself and Jordan are a friendly, laid back couple and are happy to answer any questions you have about our suite or the Calgary area! Our check in and check out times are typically 4pm and 11am, however these are flexible are we can usually accommodate most schedules.
Why we are better than staying at a hotel!!!

-You'll be able to relax in your own space without any interruptions from staff.
-Much cheaper than the average inner city Calgary hotel

Guests can access their suite through the back door of our house. You will be given a code for the keypad prior to arrival.
You will also be given a key for your individual suite, so you can come and go as you please!
I will meet you upon your arrival and give you a quick tour of the suite. After that, we try to stay out of your way!
We provide you with our phone numbers and email in case you need to get in touch with us, or just come on upstairs and knock on our door if you have any questions!

Inglewood has the distinction of being Calgary's oldest neighbourhood and it is immediately across the Elbow river from Fort Calgary.
Today, Inglewood is a vibrant, eclectic and ever-evolving arts and culture-filled district with more than 100 shops, boutiques and eateries attracting locals and tourists alike. It has been referred to as Calgary's hub of local music thanks to venues like the Ironwood Stage and Grill, and Blues Can
Inglewood is also home to Sunfest, a one-day affair that attracts more than 30,000 people to the community for activities such as outdoor shopping, live musical performances and a country-themed celebrity pie-eating competition.
Since Inglewood is in an environmentally sensitive area at the confluence of the Elbow and the Bow rivers, it is also home to several nature preserves. These include the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary, the Bow Habitat Station, Inglewood Wildlands Park, and the Sam Livingston Fish Hatchery.
Pots, pans, plates, cups, and cutlery are all provided for you to cook and eat with, however there is not enough room in the basement suite for a kitchen table, so you would have to eat on your lap in the living room.
If you are not from Calgary and are unfamiliar with our winters, please note it can get quite cold here! Please bring adequate warm clothing for your stay such as sweaters, slippers etc. Basement suites by nature are cooler than a main floor of a house or apartment. We have adjusted our furnace so that it heats up the basement first before sending hot air upstairs, so that the basement will always be warm enough for you. However if you are used to living in a house in the winter where it is plus 25 and you can wear shorts and a tshirt, that unfortunately will not happen here. Please dress appropriately :)
Please no shoes inside the suite. We have provided a shoe mat just outside of the door where you can leave them.
For longer stays, our garbage and recycling pick up day is Tuesday. There are bins in the back alley where you can properly place these items. The blue bin is for recycling and the black bin is for your garbage.
