Guesthouse in Cochrane
Charming Tiny House B&B Near Mountains and Downtown
Start your day with a homemade breakfast delivered to your door or prepared at your leisure with ingredients provided. Spend your day exploring the famous Rocky Mountains or the natural spaces of Cochrane, then snuggle up by the fireplace or bask on the garden-side patio at this exceptionally-crafted, intimate oasis. With a sunny reading loft, a cozy hand-built eating nook, and solid Wi-Fi you may not want to leave the tiny house at all! The natural materials exude warmth, and creative use of space means you have everything you need to make this your own enchanting, small-footprint home. The queen bed comfortably accommodates two adults. The daybed couch and reading loft can be converted to small sleeping spaces for up to two children as well. An additional charge of $15 per child requiring a breakfast applies. Beyond the small-footprint size, several features make the tiny house lighter on the earth including passive solar design, an earthen floor, and creative use of salvaged materials. You're welcome to explore our gardens and yard while you're here. Some of our home-grown edibles tend to end up on the breakfast menu! The tiny house is situated in our large backyard and has been designed for everyone's privacy, including your own sidewalk that connects you to your parking. Engage with us much or not at all - after check-in, it's entirely up to you!  Historic downtown is within easy walking distance, with its shops and galleries, locally-made ice cream, locally-roasted coffee, and restaurants. Cochrane has some great natural spaces to explore including the river path, the Cochrane Ranche, and the nearby Glenbow Ranche. Banff is just an hour away and it's a 45 min drive to the mountains of Kananaskis Country. The city of Calgary is only 15 minutes from Cochrane, and the towns of Bragg Creek and Black Diamond make nice day trips. A choice of two breakfast options will be offered prior to arrival (one choice per party) and it will be delivered to your tiny house door at an agreed-upon time. New breakfast options will be offered each day. It's also possible to have the tiny house stocked with some breakfast ingredients if you'd prefer to make your own. Also check out our Hereabouts B&B website.

All About Calgary

The former frontier city of Calgary is set on the western edge of the prairie regions at the base of the great Canadian Rocky Mountains. This once-booming cattle ranching hub was founded as a frontier fort before going through many changes of identity. It now serves as a major metropolitan area, cultural center, and economic hub for Alberta. Despite its relatively young age, Calgary has a rich history — ranching, cowboys, and Indigenous cultures are integral parts of day-to-day life here, along with events throughout the year, from the Calgary Folk Music Festival to Aboriginal history tours and music festivals.

From the sun-drenched summer months to cozy, snow-filled winters, this gateway to Western Canada offers hundreds of miles of urban park trails and ski runs, and even surfing on the Bow River, which runs right through downtown. The buzzing Beltline district is home to bars aplenty, and you can shop for vintage vinyl and linger over coffee in tight-knit Kensington.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Calgary

Calgary’s temperature and weather variations swing drastically with the seasons. Winter is the most popular time to head to a vacation rental in Calgary to make the most of its skiing. The winter months see temperatures drop well below freezing, with lots of accompanying snowfall. The colder months bring pristine skiing and snowboarding conditions to the surrounding mountain communities and ski hills. February brings a free, interactive lights and music event for all ages that spreads throughout the downtown core with art displays, food trucks, and more. During the summer, the area sees moderate temperatures and long, warm nights full of festivals and events. August’s famous fireworks display is a coordinated musical event orchestrated by world-class pyrotechnic artists from across the globe.

Top things to do in Calgary

Prince’s Island Park

Surrounded by the Bow River, Prince’s Island Park offers around 50 acres of peaceful pathways right in the heart of the city. You can enjoy barbecues and lively music festivals in the summer and wrap up warm to join the locals ice skating on the outdoor rink in winter. The 1.7-mile Prince’s Island Loop traces the bank of the river, where you can strap on roller blades, hop on a bike, or take a relaxing stroll and watch mallards bobbing around in the river.

Heritage Park Historical Village

A 15-minute drive outside of downtown Calgary, Heritage Park Historical Village sits on the bank of the Glenmore Reservoir. This immersive, village-sized museum recreates life on the Alberta prairie lands in the 19th century. A First Nations encampment, trading fort, and paddle steamer are featured on-site, and you can ride an antique steam train that winds around the park.

Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park

Around an hour east of the city, Blackfoot Crossing is a National Historic site — this is where Chief Crowfoot and other Indigenous leaders signed the Treaty 7 in 1877, which established the Siksika reservation. The centerpiece is an environmentally-friendly building inspired by First Nations headdresses and tipis. Members of the Siksika/Blackfoot Nation perform traditional dances in its 100-seat theater, and you can sample time-honored fry bread at the onsite restaurant with commanding views across the prairie.
