  • From the outside it doesn’t look like there’s a whole lot to do, however when you get an engaging tour guide like we had yesterday an otherwise small little house becomes a big interesting adventure. We spent easily an hour and a half to two hours in the house fully engaged in the stories of the tour guide, and the immersive explantations of life at the house at the objects that it contains. We all know the adage don’t judge a book by its cover, well don’t judge this house simply by a cursory look.
  • A gem to visit and learn about Stephan G. Stephansson – Poet of the Rocky Mountains and the lives of his family over the years. The Stephansson’s home is a wonderful snapshot in time. With the costumed interpreters helping bring this story to life. The home has very interesting furnishings of the period.
  • A wonderful place to explore Alberta's Icelandic heritage. The resident historian was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend the Stephansson house to anyone looking to experience Alberta's early history.
  • A gem of a place that I'd passed by for years. But best is the outstanding tour guide! She's got an awesome depth of knowledge and shared it in a relaxed and warm style. Highly, highly recommend.
  • Great little tour. I knew very little about the heritage of this area and Icelandic immigrants. Beautiful spot to spend some time
