About Leon Keeping

I am a local artist. I grew up in the mining town of Fort McMurray, Alberta. Wanting to pursue art full-time my fiancée and I moved our family into this beautiful community in 2008. With the many parks, nature areas and access to the mountains it is an artist's delight, and an amazing place to raise our family, with never-ending inspiration for my art.

Leon Keeping purchased this house in 2008

Why Leon Keeping chose Alberta

This property is a beautifully unique, artistic home. It boasts spacious rooms, three having full ensuites, & many skylights throughout. Add to that the sophisticated high-tech home theater with 120 inch screen, seating for nine, surround sound and its own concession with popcorn maker, makes it a renter's paradise. Don't forget the chef's kitchen boasting double convection ovens, indoor grill and gas range. there is also double doors leading to an outdoor patio with the Traeger grill band a propane BBQ.

What makes this house unique

Being an avid cook. The kitchen is my favorite room, but the artist in me appreciates the home theater.

The master bedroom is a Greek inspired, open concept room with six piece ensuite, including a jetted tub, bidet, fireplace, hardwood floors, skylights, vaulted ceiling, ceiling fans and Juliet balcony.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying at this house and both times I had nothing to complain about. Good location, big house, great movie room, and Leon the owner is great to deal with. This trip the X-box in the movie room didn't work so Leon went out that same night and purchased a new X-box for my kids to play. Thanks for the great stay Leon and we will be back again in the future.

Even nicer in person, pictures do not do it justice!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here. Had absolutely everything you needed. Theatre is incredible - felt like I was at the cinema. House is very very clean.

Close to all amenities.

Only recommendation would be to bring your own pillows. Pillows are not very comfortable.

Loved our stay. We will come back again.

Spacious alternative when staying in Lethbridge

  • 4 of 5

We stayed as a family of 5 in this home for 6 days over the Christmas holidays, while visiting family. We were very excited to find a HomeAway rental in Lethbridge, as we travel a lot and prefer to stay in homes where we can relax and spread out, rather than stay in a cramped hotel room, or in this case, bounce around from one family members home to another's-not the most relaxing for either party. 😉򒐊


This home was in a quiet neighborhood with parks and shopping nearby. Home was very clean (I'm a clean freak so VERY important to me). There was ample space for our family of 5. Kitchen was decently stocked for cooking. Theater room was a big hit with our kids and their cousins. Netflix was an added plus. Since it was Christmas, the home was decorated with a lovely tree and other touches which provided a festive atmosphere in this home away from home. Large capacity washer/dryer. Good separation throughout the home, but good gathering spaces as well.


What would make the home even better would be these suggestions:

Since it was winter, and snowing, it would have been nice to have the use of the garage for parking, as parking was a bit difficult with someone else parking in front of the home each day we were there, forcing us to park further away from the home in the snowy weather. Also, the beds/futons in the loft were very uncomfortable (per our kids) so would recommend perhaps replacing those with real beds.

All in all, we would definitely rent this home again and would recommend it.

Large Lethbridge Home

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place. We had a large group of people (including small children) and this place more than met our needs. It was beautifully decorated, had tons of room...and that theatre - WOW. Leon was a pleasure to work with and easily contacted. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Lethbridge.

Excellent Property, Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

We booked last minute for a funeral and everything worked out better than we thought possible. Leon was responsive via text or phone and flexible as we arrived late night due to extended road trip and had limited access to emails. Everything promised and offered on the web was exactly as described, and all at a reasonable price. It was convenient to all of our destinations and allowed us to host family for a nice visit after the funeral, and to destress in the theater watching family movies and pictures, allowing us to become better acquainted and renew old relationships (after near 60 years for some in the travel group). The ambience is excellent and well chosen, and was enhanced by the owner's art work. Using the house was easy and well labeled and in the right location, exactly when needed. We were able to relax and focus on our reason for being there and to grow together as family. If the need arises to be in Lethbridge again, hope this property is available. Would love to stay again.

Regards, Alan

Owers Statement: I love living in Lethbridge and enjoy helping other people see the beauty of the Southern Alberta area. With near immediate access to the many parks and wilderness areas, one can really see the time put into the infrastructure of the city and surrounding area.

Lethbridge's most magnificent characteristic is it's coulees - a network of large rolling hills that were formed a by Glacial spillwater over 10,000 years ago. The old man river winds under the world's largest Trestle Bridge. spectacular view went tubing or kayaking.

With its dedication to the Arts Lethbridge has been named the cultural capital of Canada. It has the feel of a small town with all the amenities and services of a large city. With its sunny climate and its proximity to the mountains and US border it truly is the Jewel of Alberta.

Neighborhood attributes:

Built in Uplands in 2002 it is located in an upscale neighbourhood.

The home location is a five minute walk to all amenities including Chinook Lake, Sobey's market, and gas station. Adjacent stripmall includes barbershop, liquor store, Original Joe's Pub and Eatery.

A short 10 minute walk will get you to a super Walmart and strip malls with more amenities including a boutique, clothing stores, Dollar Store, drugstore, Tim Hortons, Subway and McDonald's.

A five minute drive will bring you to Pavan park or Peenaquin Park to view wildlife, enjoy a picnic lunch, or explore the wilderness trails along the scenic old man river. It truly is the photographers paradise!

15 minutes away is the beautiful Henderson Lake. Among its attractions are the Japanese gardens, golf course, outdoor pool, walking paths and picnic areas.

A 1.5 hour drive will bring you to scenic Waterton Lake national Park. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains it boasts caves, trails, Parks, galleries and waterfalls and scenery straight from your dreams. Visit Frank Slide or Glacier National Park or the many other attractions that the mountains offer.
