I just came back from the most wonderful stay at a bed and breakfast. The rooms were elegant, the breakfast was scrumptious, and the hospitality was like no other. Okay I have to admit that the B&B was run by my brother and his wife in Alberta. I may sound bias because I am related to the host and hostess, but beleive me when I tell you that staying at the Rose Cottage is an experience you won't want to miss. www.therosecottagebb.com The bed and breakfast that I speak of is in a little hamlet called Rosebud Alberta. In this hamlet is a school that is called "Rosebud school of the arts." The school teaches students to act, produce, sing, and serve in theatrical productions. The school puts on dinner in the mercantile, then guests move across the street to the theater for a fantastic performance put on by the school. The last drama was called "On Golden Pond" It runs for 3 months then the next play starts. I was there the last weekend of "On Golden Pond" In a week the next play will start. My brother is the maintenance, and gardener hired for the school. Also he and his wife have this bed and breakfast that I have mentioned. Please check out the link to the Rose Cottage B and B. My brother John and wife Sue do a fantastic job. Not only is the bed top shelf, but the breakfast is to die for. It is candle light, fresh roasted coffee(brother roasts his own daily) and gourmet eggs benedict, or tomato, basil fritata, or whatever else my Susie chooses to serve. It is above and beyond the regular ho hum muffins and and cheese that mosts b&b's serve. In fact one b & b in the same town does not even serve breakfast, which makes me wonder why it is called bed and breakfast. It should just be called bed..... Any way, my weekend was great! I did not have to pay because I am family but I do try to earn my keep by helping out when I'm there, either by changing linens, cleaning , or helping with the meals. But if you do happen to be a paying guest, it is so worth it. You will truly be pampered.
