Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area
Cochrane is a quiet small town setting only 45 minutes from the Rocky Mountains and the world-class tourism offered by Banff and Canmore, just 20 minutes from the city of Calgary with all its urban offerings, and 25 minutes from Historic Bragg Creek. Historic downtown has pioneer-era storefronts, and the town's motto is "How the West is Now!". Wide variety of restaurant choices. Outdoor summer markets and community events, extraordinary hiking and cycling, downhill & XC skiing in winter, the world-renowned Calgary Stampede every July, Christmas Light-Up ... the possibilities are endless! Or simply stroll along the neighbourhood walking trails that lead you out onto the high rolling prairie lands or hill ridges with incredible mountain views to the west, or down to the wooded valley floor and along the Bow River. It's magical!

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules
Our home is ideally suited to a couple or a single adult, as our spare bedrooms are being used for other purposes. We take great care of our own home and will take great care of yours while we stay there; we would expect the same from you while you stay in our home. :) For allergy purposes, please note that a small non-shedding labradoodle lives here when we are at home! We are open to discussion regarding allowing a pet, if you travel with one. The plant care is minimal.
