Canmore Estate Rental Photos and Description

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.

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 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.

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 place to vacation in the Canadian hills

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, 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

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.

Our weekend escape was made even better by staying at Wavehill. It is a gorgeous house with beautiful surroundings. The decorations were interesting with the styles ranging from antique to modern art and the amenities were top class. I would definitely recommend staying here for any period of time. You are close enough to town to resupply and there's plenty of things to do near by: paintball, atv tours, horse back tours. The owner also went above and beyond on having everything ready for us. There was an issue with the hot tub from the previous stay and he made sure to have everything ready to go by the time we arrived. Big thanks for that!
