|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
This quiet retreat is located in east central Alberta. It's the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. This destination allows you to experience the unique Alberta countryside while sitting on the deck or walking the expansive valley. The small towns, within 20-30 minutes from the retreat, also provide many activities to enjoy and sites to see.
Myself, husband and two children (ages 4 and 2) stayed here for three nights while attending a 40th Anniversary party for my parents in Sedgewick. It was about a 12 minute drive to Sedgewick so going back and forth was no problem. It is very rural but in a good way. Very quiet. The house has everything you need, linens, kitchen is very well stocked, internet, lots of TV channels (we were happy to see Treehouse for the kids), BBQ, lots of patio furniture. We basically just slept there but it would be very comfortable for someone wanting to get away from the city and relax or to visit family in the area. The only thing I would have wished for is a King size bed and the water is very brown but I guess that is farm living. There are two bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs, the basement is accessed from the garage so my husband slept downstairs with my daughter as I was not comfortable with her downstairs alone. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, it was clean and well maintained.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. With getting together annualy a family that can be from 12-16 at times we found this home accommodated us well. Plenty of space both indoors and out. In side there were areas where you could find some privacy outdoors the huge yard was great for lawn games. At night the open space and huge skies was a definite for star gazing. Sitting on the large deck everymorning with a coffee in hand taking in the view was certainly a highlight.
Dealing with the owners of the home was very easy and they were always available should we have questions.
Although there is not much in the area if you are a shopper we went to the local towns for groceries and took in a parade and bbq in Killam. We stumbled across a cute little tourist town Donalda browsed through some of the shops and took a nice hike. Just make sure you are aware most things were closed on Mon & Tuesday in Donalda.
If we had to choose one thing that was missing that would be a firepit to sit around in the evening. Other than that I would reccommend this home to families wishing for some quiet time away from the bustle & stress of everyday & city life.
