About Karen

This property has a special place in my heart. My father grew up in the area - photos are displayed of his activities. I walked this acreage many times with him. The house has been built next door to my Mom's property as my get away. I live in Edmonton and work remotely as often as I can. I have chosen this location to be near my Mom and to enjoy time with her. I love to walk on the many paths on the property, fly fish in the Goat River, golf at the Creston Golf Course and ski at the many nearby resorts. I am happy to share my Mountain Retreat with you. Enjoy the special space I have created in nature. The house offers luxury, comfort, quiet and nature is only a breath of fresh air away.

Karen purchased this house in 2010

Why Karen chose Creston

This property was created as a special space to entertain family and friends. All rooms were designed to offer my guests a relaxing, comfortable environment. I love this land and especially love the views, the sounds of nature and the many walking paths in the trees. I am sure you will too!!

Beautiful home and property. We have stayed in several rentals throughout the US and Canada and this home is by far the nicest. The kitchen is wonderful, large living space and open areas to hang out in with family. Simply perfect!

Amazing home with everything you need for a special getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was an incredible find for our family trip. We had two grandparents, three adults and 4 kids. There was more than enough room for everyone and we lived in luxury that week. The kitchen is better stocked that my home kitchen and we wanted for nothing. When we did need anything the people living in the basement were more than accommodating.
