We are located just south of Water Valley, Alberta, and west of Hwy #22.  We are very centrally located, being only 50 min. from Calgary, Airdrie, Cochrane, Carstairs, Didsbury, Olds and Sundre. The Calgary Airport is only an hour away. Please contact us for directions, as GPS does not work in our area, as we are located next to a coulee that splits the range road we are on which does not show up on GPS.
