The Red Wolf Inn

Every year we celebrate Canada’s Birthday on July 1, in Houston, British Columbia. This year (2015) it was Canada’s 148th Birthday and I went to the Jamie Baxter Park where I could watch, and film the celebrations. 

I wandered around chatting with folks who were attending, and taking pictures of each of the events. 

I came across some folks who who were having a lot of fun, and battling it out in full dress from the Medieval period. One fellow by the name of Troy Reitsma looked awesome and was having sword fights on the lawn with the kids and adults. It was so much fun to watch.

What I did not know was, there is a place between Houston and Smithers British Columbia called The Red Wolf Inn. The proprietors of the Inn are his Lordship Wlfryd of Leedes and her Ladyship Rhiannon of Shrewsbury.

If you want to travel back in time, into the medieval period where there are Kings and Princesses, then I highly recommend you paying a visit to the Red Wolf Inn. If you are wanting to spend some time at the Inn, you should make reservations for your stay. You can email Wlfryd and Rhiannon at

The Red Wolf Inn has been in operation for sixteen years. It was established upon the Fields of Gold Educational Centre, a medieval village, representing time periods from the Celtic of 450CE to a 1550CE Venetian Palazzo.

The Inn is built to resemble a Tudor style building. It accommodates up to 22 patrons with room and board, as a Bed and Breakfast.

This is a Medieval Inn - there is no electricity, toilets are pit toilets located up or down High Street from the Inn, heat is provided from the wood cook stove or the heater in the Saracen Room.
