Convenient Accommodations 


Hughes' House Bed & Breakfast
315 11 Ave NE
Calgary, AB T2E 0Z2
This restored 1914 historic home is within walking distance to downtown, and is 12 minutes for the airport. It is in a quiet neighbourhood, and is close to St. Vladimir's Cultural Centre. The home is decorated with elegant antiques, including an 1876 Emerson square grand piano (and two keyboards), and cast iron tubs. This was highly recommended by one of our board members. Speak with Kelly for CASSA special rates. Ask about piano use when you book this B&B.

Novel Bed & Breakfast

1602 - 16a St. S.E.

Calgary, AB T2G 3S7


This B&B was recommended in 2018 by one of our Friends of Cassa: 

"The B & B I stayed at was very good, new and clean. The breakfast was delicious. I could certainly recommend it for Cassa clinicians and guests.”

From the Novel B&B website:

"Novel Bed & Breakfast is ideally located in Inglewood, an eclectic community near downtown Calgary. In 2014, Inglewood was named Canada’s greatest neighbourhood and it continues to thrive. We are walking distance to 9th avenue, one of Calgary’s most popular shopping areas including restaurants, pubs, cafes, and luxury retail. We are also near the Calgary Zoo, Telus Spark Science Centre, Deane House, Fort Calgary, and Stampede Park.
