A real heritage opportunity where you can stay in the oldest house in Strathcona County. This is your chance to experience an early pioneer home without sacrificing modern amenities. While maintaining the original character of the loghouse, newer additions have included a full kitchen, heated floors, bathroom and laundry facilities. In addition to the loghouse, the property also features many historical items including an old bunkhouse, a Swiss-style logbarn, antique farm machinery and an old boat once used for a tourist camp on Cooking Lake in the 1930's. Kilometres of trails throughout the property introduce you to the native flora and fauna in this area. As a wildlife preserve, the property has been maintained in its natural state. Situated on the shores of Hastings Lake, there is access for canoe and kayak enthusiasts. A day paddling on the lake will take you to the many islands of Hastings Lake. Our property also boasts a 70 acre Ducks Unlimited Conservation Area. If you are a bird-watching enthusiast or just looking to enjoy nature, this is the place for you. We offer tranquillity in a natural setting all within a short 35 minute drive to the city of Edmonton.
You will enjoy the full-use and privacy of this heritage loghome with your hosts only a short 10 minute walk away along a forest trail. We are there when you need us but happy to allow you to enjoy your time away on your own in peace and quiet.
