About This Listing
A real prairie farm, our comfortable older home is a wonderful retreat for those who want a quiet country experience or something more active. We cater to families as well as singles or couples. You can relax, swim in the pool or wander the property.
Prices can be confusing ... please read below. Located on an organic grain farm, 15 minutes north of Regina (just off Highway #11 north), we have three bedrooms available for rent. Each bedroom is separately priced based on 1 - 2 guests sharing. For example, the "green room' is $100/night two people sharing. The other rooms are slightly less per night. All share one bathroom. The "Green Room" has a queen sized bed and an adjoining sun room. The second bedroom is the "Brass Room" with a double brass bed. The third room is the "Twin Room" with two twin beds. A full breakfast is also provided. Guests can use living room as desired. The kitchen is also available given notice. A small swimming pool is available in summer. Large porches for lounging.
The property is near the Qu'Appelle Valley and has a pasture with flowing stream. It is ideal for a farm retreat or a quiet residence for those with business or pleasure in nearby Regina or Lumsden. We raise Canadian Horses and have accommodation for horses too overnight in separate pens. Photos are available.
We have highspeed wireless internet and satellite television available.
Guests have access to the main living areas of the house - kitchen, dining room and living room as well as the bathroom. The guests are also free to wander around the property, taking care around the horse pens and the swimming pool. There is a BBQ available for guests' use as well.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on the preference of the guest, we usually like to get to know our guests, sharing travels or other details as possible.
You are able to get into the north end of Regina and shopping centres in about 15 minutes. However, we are in a rural area - it is very quiet - only bird songs all day and coyote calls at night. Sunsets are incredible and in the winter, the northern lights put on displays frequently.
There is no public transit to our farm. You will require a car unless we arrange to meet you at a certain time/place.
There is a 7km stretch of 'gravel' once you leave the highway. When it rains or snows, driving can be a bit more difficult and extra care taken.
Other Things to Note
During farming season (April - October) you may wish to observe various operations such as seeding, swathing, harvesting or making hay for the horses. You are free to do this.
We do have two dogs on the property which are friendly. You may also bring your pet with prior arrangements.
We don't allow smoking in the house although there are two porches which can be used if required.
Within reason, guests are free to bring in alcohol for their own consumption.
Children must be accompanied at all times while on the farm property, especially around the pool and near the horse pens.
We booked Elaine’s room through Airbnb. She sent dozens emails to help us making our plans. In Regina we visited the Canada’s Farm Progress Show, unbelievable the agriculture equipments are gigantic, like the giant beans come true. Coincident her husband William also works in the show. Elaine’s beautiful house in a big farm between highway 11 and highway 6, really convenient. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is delicious, the Saskatchewan wild blue berry pancake is out of this world (collected in her farm). We got extra bonus, a Canadian veteran who is on a seven month cross country horse back ride to raise awareness for PTSD, his term and seven horses also stay in her farm. We had a good talk with them and moved by his spirits. Elaine gave us tons of useful information, particularly rodeo in Pillot Butte. Before this we didn't have any idea about rodeo. We are the only spectators that never have been to a rodeo. Ladies Barrel Racing, Tie Down Roping, Bareback, Steer Wrestling, Team Roping, Bull Riding, Heave Horse Pulling and Chariot Racing, everything for use is new. We were excited and got crazy by brave Cowboys and cowgirls. Elaine also drew several detailed maps to guide us. We have so many fun in Regina. Thank you Elaine and william for your hospitality .
By the way, English is my second language, maybe some sentences or words not make sense, but not my fault, because the Canada Mint not makes cents anymore.
Thank you very much for the lovely review and the Father's Day wishes. We send the same back to you and to Allan too. Don't worry about your English - everything made "cents". English is very tricky sometimes. Loved the joke at the end too. Wish you all the best on your travels.
Elaine and Will
Elaine and Will were the perfect hosts . A warm cup of tea to warm me up after a long day of travelling. Clean warm towels hung in the bathroom , something I must consider getting myself.
Elaine and I had great conversations and they continued the next day over breakfast. Her daughter joined us also.
Elaine was kind enough to allow me to wash a few things after arriving which was very much appreciated.
She made a fabulous breakfast with local berries in buttermilk pancakes with real maple syrup.
I especially loved some of the art she had, as well as some books.
Elaine also pointed out the historical parliament building and a park by the lake to go walking, ( which I did ) and they also told me about a route to take when leaving , so I could have the pleasure of seeing a special , very old church in an isolated part of the township. I did , and it was beautiful.
They are special people with warm generous hearts and I appreciate they open up their home to travellers. I started to miss Elaine the minute I left.
The listing description was exactly as stated and Elaine and Will are most gracious hosts. Best Saskatoon buttermilk pancakes ever. Once we got back home the next day we immediately missed Elaine's cooking. The beds and rooms were comfortable. The Only regret was not having the time to stay longer. Highly recommend taking the few extra minutes on the highway to head out to Keewatin Farm Bed and Breakfast.
Unfortunately Elaine was travelling when we visited, but husband Will greeted us. Will return in few days and both Elaine and Will will have returned from their travels. Grounds muddy due to heavy rains but that was fine and we managed fine. Is great house and accommodations wonderful. Will did a masterful job of entertaining and being the most proper host.
We had a wonderful stay! Our room was delightful, with a sitting room off of the bedroom that was lovely. The home-cooked breakfast - including the Saskatoon berry pancakes - was more than excellent. Elaine and Will were the perfect hosts - gracious, accommodating, interesting and kind. If we're ever back in the area, we'll stay there in a heartbeat. Dave and Margrett, Gibsons, BC.
