Description

Baffin, Unorganized Cottage Rental Photos and Description

The Retreat House is located on a four acre site on the southern edge of the Village of Herschel - within walking distance of Ancient Echoes Interpretative Centre and the Coal Mine Ravine. The house, two car garage and hot tub room are built out of elevator salvage. The facility shows a creative use of the speciality grain washed wood found in a wooden prairie elevator that has seen about 75 years of grain action on it. Elevator salvage was used for studs, sheeting, joists, rafters, floors, ceilings, walls and mouldings. The entire project is based on the principles "reduce, reuse, recycle." The Retreat House can accommodate individuals, families, extended families, small groups, etc.

Two large tipis - bring your own ground sheet and sleeping bag

Space for tents and campers

Fire pit - wood supplied.
