Looking to take a resort-style vacation, but don’t feel like climbing aboard an airplane? Wowza, do we have something special for you! No, Carbon Valley Ranch isn’t technically a European villa or an all-inclusive, but it is pretty spectacular, plus it’s only a short drive from Alberta’s major cities.
Located an hour and a half from Calgary’s downtown, this modern country palace boasts over 9,000 square feet of space and has every amenity that you can possibly imagine.
With 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, this incredible house is the ultimate home away from home, giving everyone space to relax, play and explore – though, because there are over 5 acres to roam, that may take a while.
For those looking to wind down with a good book and a glass of wine, there are two large balconies with sweeping views overlooking the valley, deep soaker tubs, a sunroom and an entire spa complete with an infrared sauna, dry hydro massage bed, and deluxe massage chairs, but that’s not all. Oh no…
For the active, “do the absolute most” types and their kids, there’s also an indoor basketball court, a theatre with a projector, board games, a pool table and a freaking dance floor with strobe lights as well as a 2-floor, indoor wooden playhouse that could rival even the best 90s play place.
Honestly, we’ve never seen anything quite like it and we bet that you haven’t either.
If this sounds at all appealing to you, feel free to check out the original Airbnb listing for Carbon Valley Ranch here, and book away. It’ll only cost you around $625 a night!
Luckily, there are enough rooms to go splitsies with a couple of friends – so it’s not all that bad!
Happy staycationing, Alberta!
