5/5 Excellent

Amazing place to stay!
Julia was very accommodating and kind. She was very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. She offered us access to her vegetable garden and berries. The property contained everything that you may need and more. She has an eye for detail! Above all, the place was super clean and tidy.

5/5 Excellent

Quaint and comfortable get-away
I stayed at the Gibbs Guesthouse for a week-long "work away from home" get-away. It was the perfect location for serene and quiet work days at the kitchen table, while still offering lots of fantastic hiking and shopping close by. The carriage house is well appointed with everything you'll need for a longer stay, and Julia is a generous and welcoming host. Also, the goats are amazing - visiting with them provided all the stress relief I needed!

5/5 Excellent

Clean and quiet
We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect and we liked the quiet setting. It is clean, well stocked and comfortable beds.

5/5 Excellent

Something for everyone
Property was just as listed. Very tidy and clean all the kitchen necessities in abundance. Fully stocked with all linens and bedding. Stayed my with my teenagers and enjoyed the games puzzles. Overal will definitely stay again

5/5 Excellent

Perfect for this trip
My family of 3 had travelled to the area with the intention to mountain bike and enjoy the outdoors. From the suite, it takes only a few minutes by car to get to Englishman River Falls, Hammerfest mountain bike trails and Coombs. Communication with the owners was easy, and they happened to be there to great us from a distance when we arrived. The carriage house suite has it's own little yard with deck and lawn chairs, and a hose for spraying off bikes. The pictures of the suite accurately represent it. Our daughter had a choice of sleeping on a blow up mattress or fold out cushions in an alcove under the eves or in the living room. She quite enjoyed having her own space under the eves (very "fort-like"). What the pictures don't show: A really well stocked kitchen (utensils, bowls, spices, oils, pans, coffee, sugar, flour, etc), beach towels for the summer months, and extras like bottles of water, a fruit bowl, a muffin mix, granola bars and microwave popcorn. Things to be aware of, but shouldn't dissuade you from a wonderful suite: no cable and the TV is not Netflix ready (DVD's, games and a Nintendo game system are provided). Secondly, the water has a distinct sulphur smell - especially noticeable when showering. Although this water is fine, the owners have provided a water filter on the kitchen sink and bottled water in the fridge. Overall, we loved our accommodation and are hoping to visit again soon in the sunnier and warmer months ahead.
