The SpaceStay in one of the oldest homes in Strathcona County. This is your chance to experience an early pioneer home without sacrificing modern amenities. While maintaining the original character of the loghouse, newer additions have included a full kitchen, heated floors, bathroom and laundry facilities. In addition to the loghouse, the property also features many historical items including an old bunkhouse, a Swiss-style logbarn, antique farm machinery and an old boat once used for a tourist camp on Cooking Lake in the 1930's.

Situated on the shores of Hastings Lake, there is access for canoe and kayak enthusiasts.

The NeighborhoodThis rolling land east of Strathcona County is called the Land of Lakes for good reason. Populated with many lakes, we are situated on one of the most eastern of them called Hastings Lake. Renowned as a bird sanctuary, Hastings Lake is a treasure trove for bird watchers. Maggie's Hill is home to many species of birds including teal ducks, wood ducks, pelicans, bald eagles, ruffed grouse, goshawk and great horned owls. Wildlife is plentiful on the ranch with the opportunity to view moose, deer, coyote, muskrats, beavers, bobcat and even the rare wolf. Getting AroundThere is no public transit to this location. You will need a vehicle to get to and from the loghouse. Ample parking is available at the site including space for trailers. Other Things to NoteYour hosts live on the property in another location. This is a working ranch and they will be farming depending on the time of year. Your hosts do have animals at their location including cats, dogs and horses.
