Homeplace Ranch - Web Site

Homeplace Ranch is a year round working & guest ranch in Alberta's high cattle country. The main ranch is about 50 Km (31 miles) south-west of Calgary, Alberta, Canada. It is at an elevation of 1500m (4900'), in the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains. In addition to the ranch property, we also ride on the surrounding several thousand acres of Crown land, most of which is leased for cattle ranching. Bears, deer, coyotes, elk and other wildlife are frequently seen. The ranch was homesteaded in 1912. Photographs and artifacts of the original owners are still displayed, and many log buildings from that period are currently in use. In 1995, Homeplace began a second operation, known as Homeplace South, located in Willow Creek's Indian Graves area. This was previously a forest ranger station, and is close to the Continental Divide, about 95 Km (60 miles) south of the main ranch. It is in Kananaskis Country (an Alberta Provincial Park) at 2000m (6000') elevation, and offers a more rugged and remote experience.
