Your own private cabin with full kitchen, bath, and wifi on a peaceful hobby farm. Enjoy spectacular views of the Caribou Mountains from your own BBQ-equipped porch. Very child and family friendly with dozens of animals to see and toys to play with.
We have large friendly dogs and miniature horses, donkey, ducks, turkeys, chickens, cats, and a llama outside (never in the cabin). If you are scared of animals this is not a suitable place to stay.
No pets and no smoking anywhere.
You have your own private cottage with a complete kitchen and bathroom, free wifi, electric heat, patio & BBQ. All set on a hobby farm with spectacular views of the Caribou Mountains, forests, and wetlands.
The cottage is setup as a bachelor suite (one room + bathroom) with a queen bed. The bathroom has a shower stall. There is no sink in the bathroom because it is small and the kitchen sink is immediately outside the bathroom.
There are flower gardens, an orchard, and a vegetable garden to picnic in. You can stroll around the 40 acres and see the various animals: dogs, cats, chickens, guinea fowl, turkeys (free range), ducks (free range), horses, miniature horses, miniature donkey, and (of course) a llama. We are very family and child friendly with lots of indoor and outdoor toys for the kids.
There is free WiFi in the cabin and around the property. If on one else is using it, we get about 3Mb/s download speeds.
You have access to your cottage and all the outdoor spaces on our 40 acres including gardens and orchard. We ask that you do not enter the horse fences unless you ask us first AND you are comfortable being around large animals. Please do not enter the chicken fence without one of us so we can show you how to properly close and latch all the gates--chickens who escape quickly die from coyotes and weasels etc. You do not have access to our private buildings like the machine shed and shop.
Interaction with guests
We will show you the cottage and give you a key. If we're not super busy and it looks like you might want a tour, we're delighted to show you the place and answer any questions you might have. We live in the main "big house" which is a completely separate building.
Other things to note
Want to know more about your host? When I recently retired from 33 years of teaching at the local high-school, the staff created "The Beard of Claude Germain" -- a song and slide show of my life. Search "The Beard of Claude Germain" to check it out.
Absolutely no smoking anywhere. That means anywhere on the property, indoors or outdoors.
No pets of any kind allowed in your cabin or on the property.
Always leave a gate the way you found it: if it's open, leave it open and if it's closed, leave it closed. Animals that escape or are cut off from their water supply are in danger. Ask us before entering any fences. Do not visit any animals that you are not comfortable with. Never walk/stand behind a horse (or llama). Do not enter any of our other buildings.
Please be nice and don't wreck anything.
My wife and I are retired teachers and have lived in Valemount for the last 27 years and we absolutely love it here. Teepee Meadows is our home and we have poured all of our energy into it--it's where we love to be. We started hosting guests in our cottages over 10 years ago and it has been a constant source of enjoyment for us. We have met some fascinating people from all over the world and have had the opportunity to share our little piece heaven.
