Waiparous Estate Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, games room, sleeps 8

Wavehill provides a true sanctuary for those seeking a very high-end vacation experience. Much more than a spectacular 3 bedroom log and stone home, Wavehill was built with total Hedonism in mind. Over the years Wavehill has been the backdrop to numerous photo shoots of beauty queens, playmates and actresses.

Guests at Wavehill include famous artists, movie stars and iconic business leaders. Immersed in nature and all its glory on a daily basis, this magnificent hillside property of over 80 acres is bordered on all sides by crown land and the Rocky Mountain Forestry Reserve. Wavehill offers Stunning, uninterrupted views across the adjacent valley to the Rocky Mountains. Wavehill also provides the ultimate in privacy and seclusion, yet is less than an hour scenic drive to downtown Banff or Calgary.

Wavehill is lavishly furnished with exceptional furniture, antiques, memorabilia and original artworks. Other features include a theater, outside jacuzzi, 8 person steam room, pool table, full size-gym and hilltop observatory with 240 degree panoramic views.

This is a destination where you instantly decompress and escape. Because of the homes exceptional hilltop positioning you are literally siting in a vortex of natural energy, its a home of tranquility and serenity that every visitor to Wavehill comments on when they arrive and remember long after they leave.

* Investment opportunity is available for the Wavehill property.

OTHER ACTIVITIES; Nearby there is paintball, horse riding, and wonderful secluded riverside walking trails or you can hike to Lake Minnewanka from a nearby turnoff. Waiparous creek and the Ghost r

I arrived in Calgary 12 years ago and had dreamed of owning a luxury resort style log home in the mountains. I searched all the typical areas to find a suitable location, Bragg Creek, Canmore and Kananaskis Country, but found these areas very congested.

What i really wanted was total privacy, complete silence and panoramic views. I couldn't fine such a place and ultimately paid a deposit on a double block in Canmore, but i couldn't get comfortable with the decision that i had made. Fortunately a friend told me of an acreage that had a partially built log home that bordered the Rocky Mountain Forestry Reserve NW of Cochrane.

As soon as i saw the property i fell in love with the possibilities and promptly cancelled the Canmore contract. I spent a year finishing the home and included lots of exceptional features where i could totally indulge myself as well as entertain corporate clients, friends and family. You can enjoy day outings to a number of world class destinations in the surrounding areas and then escape to a place of great beauty, peace and total silence where you can escape the congestion of the tourist destinations.

* Investment opportunity is available for the Wavehill property.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our family vacation. It is a little out of the way, but is well worth it. About an hour from the town of Banff, it provides the perfect location for a retreat in the woods and mountains of Canada. The house is beautiful, with a hot tub and a pool and everything you need to feel at home. I highly recommend this house to all travelers!

Perfect place to vacation in the Canadian hills

  • 5 of 5
First impressions, WOW!!!!! We were a group of eight friends and family that stayed in Wavehill estate for the weekend and we cannot praise the place enough. This spectacular lodge is fully equipped to entertain a group without even having to step outside the front door. With a snooker table,board games, home cinema, gym, foosball and a hot tub there was no excuse to be bored. We had the perfect balance of fun and relaxation. Christopher the owner and Jason the caretaker were both a pleasure to deal with when booking and renting the property. The only downside of the weekend was that we couldn't take advantage of the valley observatory hut and the fire pit because of the cold weather. But that's just a good excuse to go back and experience Wavehill estate in the summer months.

Amazing Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!! What more to say?! The estate is breath taking! A perfect location for a weekend or romantic getaway, it worked wonderfully for a memorable engagement! With a successful result! We were both blown away as soon as we saw the estate from the outside and even more impressed once we entered. Everything was in its proper place. It was very clean, inviting and cozy. The owner and caretaker were extremely hospitable. We loved how peaceful and secluded this location was and cannot wait to visit again!!

A Perfect Christmas

  • 5 of 5
We just completed our third stay at Wavehill earlier this month. The morning we arrived and the morning we left everything was covered in a perfectly untouched white blanket of snow. It truly is a beautiful property unlike any other we have stayed. Quiet, picturesque, serene and every comfort of home. Most of our vacations are filled with excursions, shopping and an endless list of things to do and see... we often arrive back at home more exhausted than when we left... not at Wavehill... every morning we awoke without a care in the world and leisurely went about whatever we felt like in that moment. At home our mornings usually start at the crack of 7 am but at Wavehill even our children (only 2 and 5) slept well past 9 am on several mornings...there is something about the place that just puts everyone at ease. Even visitors feel right at home the moment they walk in the door.
It was a magical Christmas, that passed with an ease unusual to that time of year. Its a special place to say the least. I would recommend it to anyone looking to truly get away.
