Escape the city to the serene and rich natural setting of the Rocky Mountain foothills, just outside of Calgary. Revitalize in the fresh forest air, cozy up to the stone fireplace, and enjoy the company of those around you. Book a week or weekend in these unique and hand crafted log cabins.

The Cabins:
At Folk Tree Lodge we have 2 cabins, the Deer house and the Beaver house. Full of character, both cabins have been recently renovated by a local folk artisan to include hand-crafted log beds, stone floor mosaics, decoupage ceilings and many more unique details waiting to be discovered. The cabins have fully equipped kitchens, comfortable living areas and modern bathrooms.

The Deer House is a 2000 sq. ft. log cabin built in 1954. Original oak floors, cozy stone fireplace, and spacious sunroom, all contribute to the rustic charm of this log cabin. Out the back, there is a private and forested patio with a BBQ, fire pit, picnic table, and some lovely swings hanging from the trees. The Deer House can accommodate 8-10 people.

The Beaver House is a 2000 sq. ft. barn style log cabin built in 1982. This cabin is divided into two units, the Upper and Lower Beaver. Giant windows overlooking the pasture, high ceilings, and warm colors, give it a well-lit and airy feel. The multi-level patio is large and has plenty of space for outdoor dining. There is a BBQ, fire pit and a really great tree house for kids. The Upper Beaver can accommodate 8-10 people, and the Lower Beaver, which is ideal for smaller groups can accommodate 2-4.

The Land:
Folk Tree Lodge is nested in a beautiful and intimate natural setting with a private 30+ acres of nature for you to explore and enjoy. It is surrounded by a pristine forest, with an abundance of natural beauty, wildlife and rich biodiversity of flora and fauna. You will discover vast open fields, a winding creek spanning the property, and a small pond. Venture just down the highway and you are in the magnificent Kananaskis country, a recreation area teeming with opportunities for nature exploration and outdoor fun. Hiking, biking, skiing and more, come and experience the beauty for yourself!
