About Your Host
My name is Shawn. I was born and raised in Drumheller. I left to see some of the world, and for almost 40 years lived in different cities and countries. I always maintained a connection to town. My grandmother lived in Newcastle most of her life and I came home to see her as often as possible. It’s home.
Ironically, my grandfather and great-grandfather were employees of the Newcastle Mine, long before I was born. Although I never met them, I’m certain they would be proud (and a little surprised!) that their descendant lives in the Gouge home.
While living abroad, I was often receiving friends and family that came to visit. When I returned to Canada after more than two decades living outside of the country, friends made in my travels visited often. Operating a bed and breakfast wasn’t a difficult transition and one that I thoroughly enjoy.
My intention is to create a space that is comfortable and welcoming. I enjoy trying new recipes, and will sometimes share those with my guests. Sharing food is, in my opinion, what brings people together. The breakfast you enjoy at The Tyrannosaurus Rest is meant to pamper, be enjoyed, and provide you with something a little different that you may have at home.
I look forward to seeing you here in the valley and at The Tyrannosaurus Rest.
