About this listing
A real prairie farm, our comfortable older home is a wonderful retreat for those who want a quiet country experience or something more active. We cater to families as well as singles or couples. You can relax, swim in the pool or wander the property.
Prices can be confusing ... please read below. Located on an organic grain farm, 15 minutes north of Regina (just off Highway #11 north), we have three bedrooms available for rent. Each bedroom is separately priced based on 1 - 2 guests sharing. For example, the "green room' is $100/night two people sharing. The other rooms are slightly less per night. All share one bathroom. The "Green Room" has a queen sized bed and an adjoining sun room. The second bedroom is the "Brass Room" with a double brass bed. The third room is the "Twin Room" with two twin beds. A full breakfast is also provided. Guests can use living room as desired. The kitchen is also available given notice. A small swimming pool is available in summer. Large porches for lounging.
The property is near the Qu'Appelle Valley and has a pasture with flowing stream. It is ideal for a farm retreat or a quiet residence for those with business or pleasure in nearby Regina or Lumsden. We raise Canadian Horses and have accommodation for horses too overnight in separate pens. Photos are available.
We have highspeed wireless internet and satellite television available.
Guests have access to the main living areas of the house - kitchen, dining room and living room as well as the bathroom. The guests are also free to wander around the property, taking care around the horse pens and the swimming pool. There is a BBQ available for guests' use as well.
Interaction with Guests
Depending on the preference of the guest, we usually like to get to know our guests, sharing travels or other details as possible.
You are able to get into the north end of Regina and shopping centres in about 15 minutes. However, we are in a rural area - it is very quiet - only bird songs all day and coyote calls at night. Sunsets are incredible and in the winter, the northern lights put on displays frequently.
There is no public transit to our farm. You will require a car unless we arrange to meet you at a certain time/place.
There is a 7km stretch of 'gravel' once you leave the highway. When it rains or snows, driving can be a bit more difficult and extra care taken.
Other Things to Note
During farming season (April - October) you may wish to observe various operations such as seeding, swathing, harvesting or making hay for the horses. You are free to do this.
We do have two dogs on the property which are friendly. You may also bring your pet with prior arrangements.
We don't allow smoking in the house although there are two porches which can be used if required.
Within reason, guests are free to bring in alcohol for their own consumption.
Children must be accompanied at all times while on the farm property, especially around the pool and near the horse pens.
