What an amazing place! We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Crooked Mountain Cabins and have already pledged to return. The colours and sounds of the landscape are a beautiful backdrop for a relaxing weekend away from the city, and this incredible cabin with its cozy sun porch was a welcome home away from home. We cam here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and I think it may become a tradition.

Thank you!

Here we are again, same place, same time, another year later. We think it must be ten years by now, and every year feels just as special as the previous one. We look forward every year to each and every part of our two weeks at your beautiful property. We’ve already started thinking about next year.

Thank you for everything you do!

Feeling blessed that we found this beautiful place. We spent a great week connecting with family and nature. Wildlife greeted us in many areas around here & Riding Mountain-
Sand hill cranes
Bears galore
Moose, deer, magpies
Coyote, bison at Lake Audi
We canoed and hiked at Lake Catherine and hiked Blad Hill - amazing views!

We so appreciated everything at the cabin, the lovely meadow view and walk. Special memories here!

Merci beaucoup!

I feel I’ve found another home in this place. Watching the Northern Lights dance across the sky and wandering the trail in the stillness of the morning is something I wish I could do every day. Three nights is not enough and I’m already planning my next visit. I will miss this lovely little cabin, the Parkland and the peace and quiet until I can return.

Thank you for a lovely stay. We were here to celebrate our first wedding anniversary♥, and had a tranquil and relaxing stay. The grey owl and hawk paid us a visit. We heard wolves howling and saw the Northern Lights put on an amazing display Friday night. But best of all was the quiet and sound of the wind on the trees. It was so nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a bit.

I am going to the city with the knowledge that I have found my third “home-away-from-home” (the other two being near Kenora and in the south of France). What a lovely spot this is! I love everything about it- the cozy and clean space, the quietude, the path through the meadow, the proximity to all the great hiking trails in Riding Mountain. I will be back!

P.S. just finished reading comments from other guests and want to add my voice to theirs by saying a big "thank you" – for the cut flowers and other personal touches; thank–you for the cleanliness; thank–you for thinking everything through so thoroughly.

It was delightful to experience the Alfalfa Cabin these three days. We love the artistic craftsmanship of the cabin, and the enchanting walk through the field and forest trail. As we entered the treed area, the resident owl peered down at us and blinked as if bored with our presence. This great bird must be used to humans!

Thanks for the fishing tips and directions to the Park.

In our 34 yrs together as a couple, we consider this to be our first honeymoon:)

The sound of silence
The depth of darkest night
The black velvet sparkled sky
The bounding hardens untrammelled joy
Dawn's splendid promise
Noonday's unexpected warmth
Dusk's comforting calm...
All of these proclaim
That all's well with the world,
At least in this blessed corner
And that is why we ought and do give thanks!

Your hospitality extends beyond Rosebud, the trails (and the wee tornado that downed 100 plus trees in the back) and into your home and lives. What a pleasure it has been - to eat and sleep in absolute quiet - to wake up to the sun rising and the dew glistening on the meadow and of course these wild and happy birds. We roller skied, hiked, paddle boarded and in general did all sorts of fitness things. This is a perfect spot for all that.

First of all, we thank you for the great accommodations . The place is so enchanting, no wonder people recommend this place. Thank you for showing us your one-of-kind work room, unique shop and your beautiful cabin. Thanks for sharing your work of art; it's really moving. I can see God's wonder in every piece of your art and the place is a testimony of God's love....."the beauty of nature". The design of the cabin is well thought out. It's clean and cozy. Rosebud is just perfect for our group. Thank you and I can't wait to bring S. Lesley here.

What a gorgeous cabin and property to call "home" for a few days! The sounds of nature were both soothing (wind through the aspens) and exciting (wolves howling at night!). This was a totally different, laid-back experience to a get-away in a town (where you hear more boats than birds)

Thank you so much for your thoughtful presentation, we will be back!

We went hiking and spent time at the beach and Steve shot less than 90. All of this in 3 days. We look forward to our next visit.

Thank you for your hospitality and for sharing your stories and your art.

Thank you again for a lovely stay. We loved the peace and quiet and the meadow was beautiful this time of year. We loved all the wild flowers. Zachary had a blast. He loved the trail and became an expert rider on his scooter as he rolled himself down the hill from our cottage and along the lane/road. (He loves it here-as do we.) The cottage is beautiful and the screened-in deck makes it easy to enjoy a longer evening- and to say hello to the deer. We are looking forward to next year. Loved our neighbour's violin playing.
