Our Story

Return to a Gentler Time

Built in 1935, for the W. P. Loggie family, Miramichi House was designed by architect Richard Blakey, who also had a part in designing the Alberta Legislature buildings. Blakey's work also includes Government House (the Governor General's residence), the first Alberta Provincial Museum, numerous libraries, schools and residences.  

Miramichi House retains the quiet ambiance of the early 20th century, when life was simpler, slower, and more peaceful.

Warren Peter Loggie and his wife, Louise, came to Fairview from the Miramichi region of New Brunswick, after which  their home is named. Here they raised 3 daughters: Isabel; Elspeth; and Margaret.  Miramichi House was the family home until it was sold in 2012.

This room was the abode of youngest sister, Margaret. The fir floor features a lace stenciled border.  Behind the vintage lace at the window, you can peek down at the west garden's berry patch.

Breakfast!

Start your day right! Breakfast at Miramichi House is always fresh, hearty, and home made.  Eggs and produce are local and fresh whenever possible.  In season, berries, veggies and herbs are picked fresh that morning from the gardens or greenhouse. Coffee is freshly roasted and ground. Cherry juice made from fruit picked off the neighbor's backyard tree is always a big hit, and our apple roses and cinnamon buns are just a little bit famous.
