A unique and authentic western Canadian ranch property homesteaded in 1912. A guest ranch for 37 years, Homeplace Ranch is now offered as vacation rental for those who wish to retreat from hectic life but not be far from other events.
Welcoming and comfortable 'Horseman's Lodge' - cozy enough for 2, large enough for 12 - with decks and balconies just feet from lush horse and wildlife pastures. Morning coffee and evening wine looking out the floor to ceiling windows or in the fresh clean air, watching the sun come up or go down. Afternoons or evenings around the fire pit with plenty of wood for grilling dinner or roasting marshmallows.
In 2013, Calgary hosts the 101st Calgary Stampede from July 5 - 14, and Homeplaceranch Ranch is only 30 minutes away from the direct transit link.

This property is truly 'away from it all' - private, quiet, and sset in nature, but close enough to amenities and bigger centres for easy access. People who visit her are in awe of the wonderful and peaceful energy. It is a true retreat.
