Testimonials

We recently stayed in the Villas (Barn Loft) for a girls weekend. This was a great space to enjoy time together either indoors or outdoors. The property is absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. The owner Randy was extremely welcoming and provided us with space to enjoy our stay. I would highly recommend the venue.

Jodie Hearn

Hands down one of the best places we have ever stayed at in quite some time. Was great for a stay-cation and we got to enjoy the beautiful views every morning and the service was amazing. This is truly a unique property up on the ridge in Okotoks. We were also invited to a birthday party here and was so much fun! Highly recommend.

The Ridge was an excellent girls weekend getaway just outside of the city. The property is beautiful and accommodations cozy and comfortable. Randy was so friendly, helpful and easy to contact with any questions. We would definitely return.

At The Ridge you are guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience. Not only is the space run by the most hospitable and welcoming people, but the food is deliciously made with quality ingredients. The venue is classy yet rustic, giving you that country feel to escape the city hustle and bustle. I cannot wait to be back, thanks again! 

Alana Schellenberg

My first Air BnB experience left a lot to be desired. So I came in with a fair degree of skepticism. All of that is GONE out the window . I am very impressed. Five Stars.
Gene Smith

What a beautiful place to stay! By far the most relaxing, welcoming place I’ve ever stayed for work away from home. I really did feel like I was at home, you are very pampered with great food, in a very quaint country setting. Conveniently close to town. As I was travelling alone, I took comfort in feeling very well taken care of, genuinely. They went out of their way to ensure I had everything I needed, including a VERY EARLY breakfast on my last day there. Thank you so much! I will be back, for sure. If there were more than five star, you’d get them! Highly recommend The Ridge. Beautiful!

Thank you Randy for providing a space to relax, unwind, and feel ‘normal’. It truly was an incredible experience to enjoy the beautiful spot you designed for dining. You are a gracious host.

Amazing getaway back in December at the Ridge. Beautiful guesthouse and events center with amazing scenery. Very cozy atmosphere and the friendly hosts will make you feel right at home.

Great place, great service, and real people who care running the facility.

Eugene Bleau

Hockey parents!! Our son was in Okotoks for hockey. Randy and Laura gave him a room when hotels wouldn’t because he’s 17. They took care of him like family, made sure his nutritional needs were met based on his ice schedule, and invoiced me for the food/room after his stay. So accommodating and easy! They even let him dry his equipment in the garage! They were amazing, went above and beyond to make sure he was comfortable and had everything he needed. 5 stars and then some!

Tanya Byers

The ridge is a fantastic getaway from all the busyness, and yet still close to Calgary. Randy, Laura and their family are amazing hosts that make staying at the Ridge a absolute treat. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm. Great place to stay if you are looking for a place that feels secluded without a long drive.

Kent Lappin

Fantastic hosts and a great place to stay. Great views of the Rocky Mountains and always an amazing meal!

The Ridge is undoubtedly the best place to eat, host business events and weddings alike in southern Alberta. The staff treats you like family and offer amazing service and accommodations!

Hannah Luttman

We need to add a 6th star!!!! It was fantastic staying at the Ridge this past weekend. Our family of 8 fit so comfortably in the villa. The beds and pillows were super comfy. The living areas were tastefully decorated and pleasant to relax in. We LOVED our own personal patio space and the views were amazing. The entire property is picturesque and immaculatley cared for. We appreciated SO much how accomodating Randy and his friendly staff were. Heres why; While our daughters wedding was too big (250) for this venue we got to take the most beautiful pictures for it here at the Ridge. We absolutley loved our stay here and hope to come back soon. Thanks Randy for making it such a special weekend!

We chose The Ridge for our summer 2017 Brunch wedding and it couldn’t have been more perfect. From the first phone call to the last step we took off the property when everything was done, Randy and Laura helped us through the process with ease.

We spent the weekend at The Ridge for our son’s wedding. The day was perfect from the picturesque views of the Rockies to the impeccably manicured grounds and gardens. Randy and Laura treated everyone in attendance like family. They along with their staff were friendly, courteous and accommodating to all requests. The food was unbelievable as made by Randy and Laura from the appetizers to the main course and dessert to the Sunday Brunch. The food was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced at a wedding. I would highly recommend The Ridge for any special event, staycation or dinner. There are not enough words to say how awesome the service, venue and the people are at The Ridge. Thank you for making our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding a special memory for all of us.

We celebrated our wedding here in July 9, 2017 with a 50 person brunch. We were sold by the friendliness of Randy and Laura and the completely beautiful setting. They worked with our budget and it was a collaboration to make sure the day went off without a hitch and was what we pictured. It was beautiful and perfect, and a great place for us to host our families and friends. Would recommend them for any event or a stay or dinner. Cannot say enough good things about this venue and the people who run it.

I recently help plan and attended a birthday party at The Ridge. Randy, Laura and their family were very welcoming. The food, venue and views are outstanding. Would highly recommend The Ridge for any occasion.
Cyndi Park

The food and service were exceptional at the event I attended.
Jennifer Pardy

From our first meet and greet consultation with Randy and Laura to the minute we said good bye, we felt like family. The Ridge truly opened their doors and hearts to what we envisioned our wedding day to be.

Our experience was incredibly stress-free, at times it almost did not feel like we were planning a wedding as there was very little for us to do. The Ridge managed our special day and the days leading up, flawlessly. The staff was exceptional, the presentation of our four-course meal was pleasing and delicious, the service was on point, there was no question that a wedding is what they love to do. You could feel how genuine, passionate, and committed Randy was to ensure everything was perfect.

The venue was transformed to a breathtaking scene and we were lost for words that could express the beauty of this location not only during the day but also well into the night. There are personal touches such as twinkle lights in the trees, fresh flowers, rock gardens and the ambiance that really makes the atmosphere memorable and exquisite.

We would not only recommend The Ridge but strongly encourage you to take the drive to see this secret gem because like we did you will fall in love.

Evan & Rena

Most beautiful venue I have ever been to, hands down. Great food, great hosts, great environment. Extremely clean and tastefully decorated/landscaped.

Julia Knugelmass

We had a surprise 50th Birthday Celebration in November 2018 at the Ridge. Both Randy and Laura were extremely friendly and accommodating. Randy has to be one of the most hospitable hosts, from numerous suggestions to the final performance. The venue was beautiful and all of the hors d’oeuvres were so delicious! The staff were very professional and sociable. Would HIGHLY recommend The Ridge for ANY and ALL affairs that you want to have that personal attention to detail!
Christine Campbell

Such a wonderful place to stay. Beautiful views of the mountains in the distance and close to town but yet far enough out to feel like you are in the country. Both accommodation and breakfast were superb. Thank you.

Adam Bateman

Great for private events!!! Amazing service and amazing food!
