Riverfront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
This magical home located in the Canadian Badlands on the Red Deer River boasts beautiful gardens, wrap-around country deck, fine heritage woodwork, hand-carved arches, alcoves, and antiques throughout. The home was custom built by the owner and said to be a work of art. Perfect for romantic getaways, a soft adventure weekend or dinosaur hunting in the badlands.

This home has drawn gasps and secret whispering about Harry Potter, Castles and fairies for nigh on twenty years. Come relax and enjoy the river view as you transport into a uniquely beautiful sanctuary.

The property has ample space, stage-area, and rental equipment for parties up to 60 people. Ideal for weddings, birthdays, bachelorette parties or family reunions.

The Enchanted River Cottage is the perfect getaway for small groups, families, couples, girl groups or private retreats.

The home is a 5 level split with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in addition to a clinician room for onsite spa treatments and an atelier located in the upper turret.

Floor to ceiling picture windows showcase the multi-jetted jacuzzi tub and open bathroom concept in the Master bedroom. The Suite is a luxurious space to snuggle up in a cozy king sized bed while gazing out onto the backyard and river bend.

Both guest bedrooms offer a Queen bed. Closet space and antique dressers decorate the rooms with twin access to an outside balcony. The main bathroom is located down the hall and also features a jetted tub.

A third bathroom is located on the main floor near the entrance

Our clinician room is available for massage and spa treatments.

The kitchen is perfect for large party events with a double convection oven, two sinks, plenty of counter space, large hood fan and side bar seating.

The open concept dining room area is shared with the kitchen and provides plenty of space for standing room functions, presentations or dance parties!

The living room has an enchanted decor of antiques and hand carved furniture, all snuggled around a wood fireplace. Great for visiting or kicking back.

Downstairs is a comfortable TV/family room with a futon available for a 7th guest.

On the rare occasion that the house is overly warm there are fans in the ceiling or additional floor fans can be pulled out of the closet. There are screens on both Guest Bedroom doors for additional airflow and a ceiling fan and venting window in the Master suite.

Just off the kitchen is a 750 sqft multilevel patio with a bbq, seating and deck that wraps around the house. Great for day time gatherings, back yard parties or intimate lounging around.

The backyard gardens looking out to the Red Deer River are a gorgeous setting for family events, weddings, pictures and more.

The residence provides a large drive way and accommodates plenty of street parking with a large grassy lot across the street.

Great Escape!
Had a great time exploring the uniqueness of this house. Beautiful view from the master bedroom, even laying in the jet tub! Great photo opportunity in every room, loved the different stairs cases. No curtains on any of the windows & Ice maker didn’t work. Norah was quick to answer any questions we had, all in all a peaceful relaxing place!

Lovely place
Stayed here for 4 nights. Very unique property with beautiful scenery from back deck. Owners were very friendly and easy to communicate with. House was clean and beds were comfortable. Lots of fun exploring house and drumheller. Overall a great place to stay. Some blinds in the master bedroom / bath would be nice for more privacy.

Where the deer and the antelope play.
Really unusual experience. In a good way. Peaceful. The home is as pictured. Kids loved it. On three separate occasions we found deer feeding in the yard. Cool Knick knacks throughout the house mesmerized the kids. Nora was terrific. A one of a kind. experience.

Drumheller Stay
Lovely house , it is exactly as depicted online. We had a marvelous time , however there was some stress with our young children( aged 4 & 2) because the decks did not have railing. Hosts were very friendly and helpful .

Fantasy property in a good location
The place is awesome. It's huge with unique/interesting touch all over the house. Kind of older fancy style with touch of modern. Almost like a small castle feeling to it. The place has a full kitchen with everything u might need. The master bedroom is beautiful. Large and have jetted tub. The view of the bedroom is gorgeous. Backyard is perfect for that summer hang out spot. Good overall and highly recommend.
