Tucked away on a dead end street in the wonderful community of Minnedosa, Manitoba sits a newly opened bed and breakfast with an interesting local history. Recently I had the pleasure of being one of the very first guests at Stone View Natural Bed and Breakfast. I was in Minnedosa for the August long weekend and was being hosted by the Town of Minnedosa as part of the Travel Manitoba #ExploreMB Like A Local Campaign. As I was attending Rockin’ The Fields of Minnedosa late into the evening, plans were made to stay in town overnight. I had no idea I would be treated to such a beautiful and luxurious bed and breakfast with a strong connection to local Minnedosa history.
Stone View Natural Bed and Breakfast is part of the Stones of Memory self-guided tour of Minnedosa’s historic stone buildings. Scattered throughout Minnedosa are ten stone homes all constructed of granite field stones and built by local stone masons in the late 1800s. They are easy to spot as you drive around the town as their beautiful stones immediately catch your eye and pique curiosity. Stone View Natural Bed and Breakfast was originally the personal project of Thomas Taylor, a popular stone mason in Minnedosa in the late 1800s who built the home for his family, and later he served as Mayor of Minnedosa in 1909. The home has undergone many changes over the years but still maintains lots of original charm. When Wendy and Kevin Wheelans purchased the home they decided to pursue the dream of owning their own bed and breakfast and Stone View Natural Bed and Breakfast officially opened its doors to guests.
I am relatively new to B&Bs, but in my experience this one is a great choice! It seems as though no details have gone unnoticed. From plush bathrobes, Yves Rocher bath products, rain shower head, Egyptian sheets, pillow top mattress, lavish duvets, and fresh flowers in every room, Stone View Bed and Breakfast offers luxury and tranquility at a very affordable price. The decor is crisp, clean, and classic elegance which creates a very restful environment. Window views offer horses in pastures, the Minnedosa Golf Course, and cute gardens with its own swing perfect for a lazy morning.
Breakfast is served in an inviting and delightful dining room with hints of antique decor resting gracefully on the deep window sills. With beautiful blue china and silver tea set I felt very posh and spoiled. Wendy is a fantastic chef and our Sunday morning breakfast showcased her talents perfectly. Fresh fruit, homemade granola, cinnamon roll cakes, steaming hot coffee and a choice of a healthy smoothie, chocolate pancakes or a breakfast bacon and egg sandwich on homemade bread meant we certainly did not leave hungry.
After a great night's sleep and a delicious breakfast, our Sunday morning felt pretty darn perfect thanks to Stone View Natural Bed and Breakfast. I have no doubt that this B&B will have many successful years and offer a wonderful experience for future guests.
