The loft bedroom was a great hangout for our kids, and we enjoyed opening gifts under the Christmas tree that was set up in the sunroom. Most of all, we enjoyed having a wood-burning fire in the living room fireplace! While we were there, we were able to play some shinny on the pond (the two benches worked well as nets!), as well as snowshoe through the woods.Stephen
The grounds are immaculate and offer lots of hiking trails, a big campfire circle and plenty of area for quiet contemplation. Deer wander around the property and songbirds abound. The location is secluded but just minutes from the shops in the hamlet of Bragg Creek, and close to the all-weather trails and amenities in Bragg Creek Provincial Park.Yyvonne
We had "our family Christmas" in this cabin Dec 20-22, 2013 for 7 adults, this was the gift we chose for our family rather than purchasing gifts. It was the best choice we've ever made, a truly wonderful weekend.C.B.
This is an excellent lodge for a family retreat. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need, ample space to gather all together and also space to get away on your own to refresh. There is a young couple on-site managing the day-to-day operations who were helpful but not at all invasive. We were left to our own devices for the whole weekend and thoroughly enjoyed exploring the property, the town nearby and of course some of the amazing hiking trails.Jess
Thank you so much for letting us share your paradise in the trees! Your Deer House was the perfect accommodation for our family. We enjoyed everything about your oasis.., the cats, skating pond, tree house, walking trails and especially the Deer Lodge and all the handmade touches.Kathy
We mentioned we wanted to go tobogganing but we forgot our sleds, so without asking, they left three for us at our front door. They shoveled their pond so we could skate, and they checked in on us to ensure we were enjoying our stay. The attention to detail and hospitality we received was truly refreshing and made our stay at Folk Tree unforgettable.K.
Great for a group that wants to have time together and time alone. Easy to get to - lovely setting.Didjido
A group of women recently attended a retreat at the Folk Tree Lodge and we absolutely LOVED our accommodation and gorgeous surroundings! The beautiful ambience of the lodges with all the lovely hand carved beds, artwork and even the dining room table...all added to our wonderful experience during the retreat! I would highly recommend Folk Tree Lodge to anyone looking for a fabulous getaway in nature yet not too far from Calgary. Enjoy!Jacquie
We couldn't believe our eyes when we arrived and saw how beautiful everything was. The owners have paid so much attention to detail. There is even a fantastic tree house for the kids! Although it's not directly in the mountains, they are only a short drive away. We loved it, and we would go back.A.G.
Perfect! Is how I describe the hospitality, location, accommodations, & overall setting for our family reunion this past weekend…I can't say enough good things about our whole experience. We unwillingly left the Beaver House at Folk Tree Lodge on the Monday morning with a weekend full of memories we won't soon forget. Thank you!Laura
If you're looking for a spot in the Calgary region to enjoy some very peaceful and rejuvenating time with family this is the spot.Kev
We stayed at Folk Tree Lodge to celebrate a birthday with friends and family. The kitchen had everything we could need, and the open dining/cooking area is where we seemed to congregate, as the weather did not co-operate for some of our stay. The kids loved the playhouse, and we had a good bonfire on the first night of our stay. The manager of the property was very helpful, and located a playpen for the youngest of our group right away. My only disappointment was a lack of fireplace in the main lodge. The bins full of sports equipment on the deck were a great touch as well. We would love to return!!Claire
We had been going to a lodge in Rocky Mountain House every family day weekend for many years and sadly it burnt down about 8 years ago. Since then we've been renting other accommodations for the occasion, but nothing seemed just right until... we stepped into your Deer Lodge. It truly is PERFECT!Kathy
There are enough distractions around the property to keep kids busy (tree house, skating, farm animals) while the adults enjoy the peaceful location and beautifully appointed cabins. I have recommended this property to many and will continue to do soSarah
Our group had a great time of morning serenity watching the glorious sunrise through the large kitchen window, lounging and chatting in the sunroom, cooking and BBQ-ing together on the deck and in the spacious kitchen, kicking back watching movies at night and rounding off the night around the fire pit roasting marshmallowsP.C.
I had the pleasure to stay at the Folk Tree Lodge in beautiful Bragg Creek during a yoga retreat. What an amazing place this is! Out and away from it all, but only 5 minutes from the Bragg Creek hamlet with wonderful shops and restaurants. The hosts are very friendly and warm people. I would highly recommend making Bragg Creek and Folk Tree Lodge your destination on your next trip.D.
Folk Tree Lodge is a delightful retreat. Deer Lodge, positively oozes western charm. The massive log structure, the fieldstone fireplace makes for a warm and inviting sanctuary. Everything is well appointed down to the last detail. So clean, so cozy!Sue
The drive is only 30 to 45 minutes west of Calgary and is in the foothills of the Rockies near the town of Bragg Creek. There are lots of outdoor things to participate in (bring your own bike, hiking equipment, cross country skis etc.) and opportunities to quietly sit and contemplate in the serene surroundings.Pam
Absolutely the perfect idyllic, charming, cozy "home away from home" destination! We had 10 women stay there for a weekend and we were all thoroughly charmed by the Deer House where we stayed as well as the entire locationBarb
Our family of six stayed for 3 days - absolute bliss. We had a 3 yr. and 1 yr. old who found everything magic - from the lego to play with and the beautifully carved beds with bird carvings and decorated ceilings to look at to the friendly animals and swings outside. Everything needed for comfort was attended to - from the BBQ and fire-pit to all kitchen amenities and comfy beds and bedding. The scenery was a dream. The owners were wonderfully kind and hospitable. I cannot rate it highly enough.Christine
