 The Willow Hill Lodge Story

Willow Hill Lodge was a dream for many years before coming to reality in 2020. 

James and Cathy are the Experience Curators here at Willow Hill.

They purchased the property near Longview, Alberta in 2018 and began to lovingly restore and renovate it so they could share the beautiful surroundings with friends and family. Their goal is to be able to build a place for people to come and stay in a peaceful setting where they can forget about the world outside, even if only for a short while. The sound of nature and quiet is all around you at Willow Hill Lodge. 

The property is located in ranching country and is 1 km north of Longview, Alberta. They are 15 km south of Black Diamond and 18 km south of Turner Valley. Calgary is  a 45 minute drive from the property.

The home they offer for the Bed and Breakfast is a log home built on a hillside, and boasts some of the best views of the valley and the Alberta Rocky Mountains.


The Bed and Breakfast is in a separate suite in the home, and offers 2 private bedrooms that share common areas. The whole suite can also be booked as one unit, in which case, there would be complete privacy. Booking the entire suite gives you the best experience at Willow Hill Lodge.

The property offers many places to walk and hike throughout its 67 acres. If you are adventurous, you can hike up the hill to see the beautiful landscapes, or choose to take meandering walks through the rest of the property.  Don't forget to bring some good walking shoes so you can experience all the Lodge has to offer. 



The wildlife is abundant as deer roam the property and you can occasionally catch a glimpse of the local moose. They have named her Lucy!

The property is close driving distance to Kananaskis country hiking, sightseeing in the mountains, historical sites and museums. The area also boasts some amazing eateries, breweries and world class dining. The city of Calgary is less than an hour to drive to and also offers an abundance of activities for any traveller. No matter which direction you travel from the property, you will find all types of sites and activities to explore.
