If you’re anything like us, you want every moment of your travels to be special. Everything from the wild adventures that left you breathless, to where you rested your head at night. That’s why we’ve put together three of the most interesting and memorable places you need to stay during your next West Central Alberta getaway.
1) The Bed & Breakfast Lover’s Dream: Ride the Wind Ranch B&B
This cute and cozy B&B is a must stay for anyone looking for the perfect good-feeling country experience. Located in Rocky Mountain House, cuddle up in your spacious cabin and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Rockies, or let your wild side run free and try your hand at horseback riding, located just five minutes away. Don’t worry if your wild side isn’t ready to run with the horses, feel free to just pet the horses or share some snacks with the bunnies and goats. Travellers are welcomed with unique and comfortable log beds, campfires, and a five-minute drive to Crimson Lake and Twin Lakes. B&B not your thing? Not to worry, rooms can be booked with or without breakfast, with a variety of dinner options available for your preference. Complete your Alberta roadtrip with this cherry on top and enjoy a country experience for the memory books.
2) Calling All Nature Lovers: The Aurum Lodge
If you love wide open spaces, getting up close with nature, and escaping the congestion of the city, we have the perfect stay for you. Open year-round, you can soak up all the wonders of nature and enjoy low-impact, non-mechanized outdoor activities in the sun or snow. Surrounded by breathtaking mountains and lush forests, this Nordegg lodge is the ultimate picture-perfect scene. To add to the beauty, this lodge overlooks the sparkling Abraham Lake. Spend your days hiking through the trails, mountain biking, horseback riding, or snowshoeing. To suit your preference, lodges are offered with both partial meal services, or self-contained units if you prefer to whip up your own cuisine. Relish in all the freedom nature has to offer during your next stay.
3) Your Home Away from Home: Nordegg Vacation Rentals
Leave your worries in the city and escape to this scenic mountain getaway. Located in Nordegg, The Stagger Inn blends your favourite elements of extravagance and the fresh outdoors to create the ultimate mountain experience. Lavishly designed, this four-bedroom cabin comes complete with TVs, WiFi, a fire pit, steam shower and more. It’s your perfect hotspot for large groups or a romantic outing for you and your special someone. Need a little more space for all your friends? The Baldy Mountain Lodge is the perfect next-door neighbour. This charming little escape includes the modern amenities you’re used to, with a special rustic feel. Complete the classic cabin-in-the-mountains experience with a fire in the wood burning fireplace, a dip in the en-suite soaker tub, or keep the party going and try one of the nearby activities, (ever tried a heli-tour before?)
There you have it – from rustic lodges to cozy B&B’s, David Thompson Country has an array of unique options to suite your next one-of-a-kind Alberta adventure. Find an accommodation option right for you and start planning your next escape to West Central Alberta!
