About this listing
Our 4-Clover Ranch "Cabinette" is a cozy, private cabin on our ranch south east of the town of Rocky Mountain House. The "Cabinette" is less than 100 meters from our yard. You will stay in the private, rustic "Cabinette" with its basic facilities but you are welcome to use the amenities in our main cabin for showers, washing or wifi. It is an ideal spot for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers. Pets are welcome and there would be room for additional tenting if needed. Please discuss.
We are a secluded ranch which shares the space with an abundance of wildlife. There are opportunities for walks in wooded areas and across pastures or sit and relax by an open fire sipping on a glass of wine or reading a book. This is very much a back to nature experience. The cabin is a single, brightly lit room with double bed (single bunk bed overhead), couch, table, wood heater and running cold water. The toilet is an outdoor pit toilet, however you are welcome to use the toilet and shower in the main cabin. There is a camping style gas stove & kettle to boil water. The Cabinette has minimal power, run by a solar panel, which is sufficient to charge a mobile phone / ipad and a cabin light. There is no fridge. A coolbox is provided if you wish to bring a bag of ice.
From the "Cabinette" guests can walk across grazing pastures and through aspen and spruce woodland. Local wildlife can often be seen on walks or from the cabinette.
Guests can access our main cabin for showers, wifi or to use the washing machine.
