Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We live and work in Calgary and this unique log house has been our favourite year round retreat for the past 12 years. We have had many guests, artists, writers & musicians who have asked if they could take their holidays here so we are sharing it, as we currently are not using it full time.

Why the Owner Chose Pincher Creek No. 9, AB, Canada:
This place was my studio for many years. I am an artist. The surrounding countryside is spectacular. The 2 hour drive from Calgary is easy and beautiful. This is a wildlife corridor and yet there is easy access to the property. It is quiet, private, cozy and comfortable. There is something really special and fulfilling about this house and the 12 acres around it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The large windows provide a feeling of being outside with all the comforts of home. The wood walls and vaulted ceilings offer wonderful acoustics. Old buildings and the unique landscape create a visual experience at the door. There's room to play right on site. In June & July the wildflowers fill the meadows in the front; Summer is sweet, the fall hikes are spectacular and in the winter it is a cosy retreat close to winter sport facilities.
