Welcome

Woodland West

Summary

Woodland West has been a vision for the owners for 20 years and is now a reality.  There are many things to experience with multiple facilities and the splendour of Kananaskis wilderness on our border.  Let us know what you are trying to accomplish for your particular event and we will create a solution for you. The "Woodland West" name comes from  grand parents that operated a lodge and a hunting / fishing camp in New Brunswick - called the Woodland Lodge.

Lodge

The Lodge was the orginal home on the property. This space is being converted into a large open space natural timber frame with breakout rooms throughout to accomodate your offsite strategic session or team building event.  Accomodates 15-20 people on a day use basis. 

Fireside Room

In the fireside room you have a large 1200 sq foot multi-purpose meeting room that is suitable for larger corporate groups, training sessions, musical events, family reunions or for weddings. Accomodates 75-100 people depending on the table setup. An adjoining 800 sq foot kitchen, outside deck and entrance area allow for breakout space and services.  

Cabin

The little cabin in the spruce woods is a real gem.  This is a very peaceful place, next to historic John Ware creek. Suitable for couples looking for a weekend away from the city, families that want to camp out for the weekend or horse trail riding groups that want a base camp before they ride onto the trails of Kananaskis.  Artists find this space particularly attractive for getting creative and enjoying some space for their work.  

Treehouse

In an aspen forest on a hill at the edge of Kananaskis country, this fun place awaits the kid in you for your sleep over in the trees. In the future, a sky walk will connect to other "rooms".  Ideal for writers, artists or just folks that want to experience something a little different and secluded. 

Tipi

 Thanks to the Pathways Community Organization there is an authentic native Tipi on the property.

 

 

Pond Area

The pond is a large body of water suitable for swimming and floating around in a canoe.  An island golf green is in progress.  A great space to hang out around, wack some golf balls, have a campfire or paddle around the pond.
