Property description

Set in the picturesque Beaver Hills area a mere twenty minutes drive southeast of Edmonton our guest house offers clean and quiet accommodation for individuals or families of up to four. The rural setting offers quiet rest and relaxation as well as a great number of available activities weather your interests are in nature, rural life or in more urban pursuits.

With the Ministik Bird Sanctuary and Cooking Lake nearby nature is practically on your doorstep. You can go hiking, biking or canoeing in the morning; perhaps play a round of golf or lunch at a Jack Nicholas signature golf club only a few miles away in the afternoon. The city of course also offers numerous attractions too numerous to mention here which we have listed in our "things to do section".

We raise sheep, chickens and vegetables, so seasonal produce, fresh eggs and occasionally freshly baked bread are available. The house is self catering and equipped with basic kitchen facilities as well as washer and dryer.
