We Were Charmed and Intrigued by The Old Stone House

When we were looking for a venue to host a training session for professional heritage consultants working in Alberta, The Old Stone House stood out as our first choice. Naturally, the architects, historians, and planners attending our event were charmed and intrigued by the house – especially the careful attention to detail involved in its restoration. The story and ambiance of this amazing historic place really took the event to the next level. The upstairs Stewart Room served as an excellent ‘break-out’ space.

We received glowing comments on the delicious lunch, beverages, and snacks, and Carolyne and Tom Saumer were fantastic hosts. Carolyne worked with us to make the event a great success. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Old Stone House as a venue for events that have that special ‘sense of place.” - Matthew Francis, Manager, Municipal Heritage Services, Alberta Culture & Community Spirit

Carolyne; We three well-behaved ladies were thoroughly thrilled with our luncheon experience at the Old Stone House this past weekend. The "birthday girl" felt very well treated by the classy, warm decor and service. Thank you for the delicious food, friendly greeting and welcoming atmosphere. We enjoyed investigating the upstairs and visiting with your mother-in-law. Many recommendations are coming from us!! Regards Lois Halterman
