About paola romanelli

I grew up in the middle of an apple orchard in Northern Italy and at sunset my chore was to walk the dogs. The scent of the blossoming apple trees, the song of the birds and the taste of those apples are memories that brought me here.

I recognize that everyday life takes lots of energy to be lived and we all need time to unplug and connect with nature. My everyday challenge is to create the perfect environment for my clients, to offer a good service and an opportunity to create a connection between them and the wonderful nature surrounding them.

paola romanelli purchased this chalet in 2005

Why paola romanelli chose Calgary

We moved from Italy in 2000, attracted by the beauty of the natural surroundings. We bought this property in 2005, it was the perfect place to expand our passion for sustainable living.

One of the cabins was built in 1954 and the other one in 1982.Both have been completely renovated and following our 'artistic' mind, we have been able to create a unique environment where our clients are surrounded by the beauty of nature inside and outside.

What makes this chalet unique

Folk Tree Lodge is a special place. It is:

A place to hide away for a weekend,

A place to snuggle up with your special One.

A place to sit around the fire sharing laughter and stories.

A place to relax and listen to the music of the forest.

A place to admire the moon, rising between the branches.

A place to watch the peaceful snow fall.

A place for sharing very treasured moments with family and friends.

The Folk Tree Lodge is your secret place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great place

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful accommodations and a quiet location. We had a large group people including kids and there was plenty of room. Clean and well stocked. Owners were helpful and responsive. About 5 km from Bragg Creek and a 50 minute drive to Calgary. Close to great hiking, biking and XC skiing. Great roads in this area through the foothills and mountains. Good access to provincial parks in area. We hope to stay here again.

Our stay at Bragg Creek

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was at the Deer House Lodge, just south of Bragg Creek, Ab. It was a magnificent place. Very rustic and a the same time, completely modern. Very peaceful and serene, stunning views and lots of wildlife to observe. There were 8 of us staying at the cabin and we had more than enough room, very spacious and very comfortable. Our family was here from England and could not get over the beauty of the place, they had a fabulous time and we all hated to say good-bye to the cabin, we all fell in love with it, it felt just like home.

Hopefully, one day we will make the trip back and spend more time there. A big thanks to Paola and Alvise for their warm hospitality and beautiful property.

Had a fantastic couple days hanging with the family. Playing games by the fire; skating on the pond; visiting the horses, cats and chickens. Even the weather cooperated. Will definitely be returning!

attention to detail

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults and one 3 year old) stayed here for one week in February. We loved the house and the location. The house is warm (even at minus 30 degree Celsius at night!)and spacious with a lot of very tasteful and practical details. Spacious kitchen (with everything), living room (with huge fire place- free fire wood included!) and great (warm!) glass/timber extension with dining table and "library"(with rocking chair!). The setting (white-timber fenced grassland surrounded by woods) is wonderful with some old (renovated) red and white painted farm buildings and sheds nearby.(Our son loved to watch the chicken (thanks for the eggs, Alvise!) and horses and to pet the cats there). We saw some deer walking over the premises and (on the early morning of our departure!) two moose were nibbling away on some willows at the bottom of one of the fields! (visible from our dining room)
Paola and Alvise are both very nice, friendly and helpful. They gave us great advise about the area and local attractions. Travel to Calgary is 35mins and to Canmore (Rocky Mountains) is 55mins on excellent roads.
We should have rented cross country ski (well at least one of us parents) on the first day (available at hardware store in Bragg Creek-5 minute drive), but often preferred to explore the estate by foot or just relax inside the very "gemuetlich" log house villa. In Bragg Creek there are two grocery shops, a post office, a pharmacy, petrol station and a couple of nice looking shops and restaurants as well. We made trips to Banf (beautiful mountain views and high street shopping) and Calgary (the "half-pipe" at the Olympic Center is a must for snowboarder!), but were always happy to come back for dinner to our log house villa. Well- what else? 3 full double bedrooms plus 1 upstair "secret" room with a double mattress (great for kids) and two bathrooms would make this property an ideal place even for large families (or two small ones!) or groups of friends. It's a nice place to relax and a great location between Calgary and the Rocky Mountains.
We would love to come back (in summer?) and strongly recommend this property to our family and friends.
