THE CROSSING AT GHOST RIVER – DISCOVER THE DIFFERENCE
Located on 145 rolling acres, set along the banks of the picturesque Ghost River, The Crossing offers an exceptional stay in the beautiful Ghost River Valley. Experience relaxed, professional, and unassuming hospitality in a natural and peaceful location and let us take care of you. The history of The Crossing at Ghost River first began with the region’s Aboriginal people who used a low point in the river as a “crossing”. In later years, this crossing connected and aided early explorers, traders, and settlers in many of the same ways. The land, as a whole, has always provided opportunities to connect its visitors with its countless treasures and natural beauty and continues to be recognized for its intangible qualities, rich history and natural beauty.
YOUR HISTORY AND RANCH EXPERIENCE
The entire Ghost area is rich on history and you will hear firsthand what it was like to settle in the area one hundred years ago. A walk on the ranch will explore the unique landscape, riparian structure and how the land is used for sustainable grazing. The ranch hosts several old buildings that are full of stories from time gone by that will capture your interest. This is going to be a fascinating weekend that will not disappoint your curiosity. The Crossing at Ghost River and local rancher are excited to offer this wonderful weekend in the Alberta Foothills.
Cost for the weekend: $410.00 plus taxes for single occupancy and $320.00 per person double occupancy plus taxes
