The Tyrannosaurus Rest B&B
Drumheller has an interesting history, and The Tyrannosaurus Rest B&B Drumheller has accompanied the town through growth and change for over a century.
In 1912, construction of the house was initiated by Jessie Gouge, owner of The Newcastle Mine, the first coal mine in the valley and the beginning of an industry that supported the area for decades to come. The Gouge family home for 27 years, and later a private residence for another 54, it was converted into a bed and breakfast in the early 1990’s.
We are centrally located and walking distance to much of what Drumheller has to offer, the house is the perfect base for valley explorers, families, and anyone visiting the area.
With four comfortable rooms with private baths, there is a space for every need. The quiet library, relaxing parlor, and inviting dining room, the porch and yard are all available for guest use.
Breakfast is a pampering experience that will fuel you for hours of exploration and discovery. You can relax on the swinging chairs on the porch or in the shaded yard between excursions. Experience the history of Drumheller combined with modern comforts during your visit to the valley.
Why Stay in a B&B rather than a Hotel?
The experience. History, art, local insights, comfort, delicious breakfast, supporting local, small business, dining recommendations, the camaraderie of fellow travelers, a unique room, amenities within walking distance, and a taste of historic luxury.
The Tyrannosaurus Rest was built by Jessie and Maude Gouge in 1912 as a private home. A prominent figure and important town founder, he built a home to reflect his standing. Imposing amongst the first buildings that formed Drumheller, the house has its roots in the foundation of the town.
Today, with a mix of antique and maximalism that respect the original style and design, unique art can be found on every wall in every room. Pieces that defy age through craftsmanship, interesting objects and furnishings, can be found throughout.
Wake to the smell of locally roasted coffee or hand-blended teas and a full breakfast that will keep you exploring the valley for hours.
Your stay at The Tyrannosaurus Rest Bed and Breakfast will make your visit to the valley all that more memorable.
