We are located 5 kms west of the 4-way stop in Turner Valley, just west of the lovely Cowboy Trail (Highway 22). If you’ve driven that route, you’ll agree it is one of the most beautiful areas in Alberta! Less than one hour from downtown Calgary, yet once you approach Diamond Willow, you’ll literally feel the city stresses roll away.
Nestled into an eleven acre parcel, the retreat is private and secluded, overlooking Lineham Creek. Our love of the land and the region’s spectacular views were instrumental in the design of the retreat. It has been designed and built with your visit in mind.
As you enter the front door, the grandeur of the great room with its wood-burning fireplace and westerly vistas will greet you. The large country kitchen is a favourite gathering place where all meals are shared. The wrap-around deck is accessed from the great room, kitchen or from the hall.
The walkout level has a large rec room with a fireplace and entertainment centre, access to the cedar patio on the west side and the yard on the south side. The yard features a hot tub, a fire pit and a wood fired pizza oven where at least one meal is cooked during a retreat – a fun and delicious activity! There are 4 bedrooms on this level, each furnished for double occupancy, and are kept cozy with in-floor heating.
The upper level consists of a library (a retreat within the retreat) and a large bed room. This room sleeps 4 in single beds, has a fireplace and full bathroom with a jetted tub. This spacious room has a private access via a stairway from the south-facing deck.
There is a rich assortment of activities to amuse in the area. Below is a sample:
