"The Athabascan" - Villa 5
A private and cozy country villa for a small group of 6 – 8 people. This well appointed 3 bedroom villa is the perfect design. One ground floor Queen bedroom and 2 large second storey Queen beds with an extra single and pull out twin sofa bed.
The open plan lounge and dining area with crackling log fire allow for long conversations with friends. The secluded private garden of this larger villa leads out to the rolling manicured paddock and the Shiraz vineyard.
The mighty Athabasca River flows by the small northern Alberta town of Athabasca. The “land of the whispering hills”, as the local First Nations word translates, is a land of smooth flowing hills and valleys of rich and fertile farm land and wilderness. When the northern parts of this Canadian province were first being settled by the British and French, they used the shallow but quick moving river to move supplies and people ever northward with big paddle wheelers from this trading post town. Some of the first brick buildings are still being used today for modern business trading. The master proprietor of this estate has a long family history of settlement in this area with most of his immediate relatives still farming and working in and around the Athabasca area. It was in Athabasca that he met and later married his high school sweetheart whose family moved 600 km north of Calgary to buy a farm 4 km down the road from his Dad’s big farming operation.
Bed Configuration: The main floor Queen bed bedroom allows easy access for wheelchairs and limited mobility. There are two private bedrooms upstairs. Bedroom 2 has a Queen and single bed. Bedroom 3 has a Queen bed and sofa bed. This villa can sleep 8 on furnished beds.
