It is said that location is everything. “The Loft” is a few minutes walk from unique shops, great coffee, tasty treats, and the amazing Lineham House Galleries. It is also a few minutes drive to wide selection of larger chain stores including Costco, Walmart, and Safeway. Less than an hour to the Calgary International Airport, an hour and a half to the Canmore/ Banff area and the glorious Rocky Mountains, and only 15 minutes to the south end of Calgary, “The Artist’s Loft” in Okotoks is a centrally located home away from home for your next southern Alberta adventure.
For visitors who are visual artists, you will be invited to use Birdsong Studio below as much as you like. It is a 400 square foot creative space with lots of light and several spare easels. If you’re an aspiring artist and want to experience the wonder of painting, ask about arranging a workshop during your stay or some one-on-one painting time with one of our resident artists.
For those seeking rest, relaxation and self-care we have yoga, meditation and healing services available onsite. Pre-book your private craniosacral therapy or dynamic energy healing session before you arrive and know that you will be well cared for.
“The Birdsong Artist’s Loft” offers a completely unique and private oasis, nestled at the base of a natural hill that is home to many species of birds and a natural habitat for the abundant deer and black squirrels that call Okotoks home. Don’t be surprised to walk down the stairs and be greeted by a furry friend. It is in the heart of downtown, but serene nature walks are literally a few steps away, a perfect balance between town and country.
**Please NO Parties**
Historic downtown Okotoks has small town charm with bistros, cafes, boutique shops and plenty of natural beauty. We are across the street from a sweet little antique shop called “The Cranberry Cottage”, only four houses East from “94 Take the Cake” - an exquisite bakery/coffee shop and only a block and half West from “CD Bloom” - a unique coffee/tea and flower parlour, the “Lineham House Art Gallery” and the Rotary Performing Arts Centre. There are many other businesses on Elma Street and we invite you to explore them all during your stay in the area.
Just one block South is Elizabeth street where you can find an art supply store, restaurants, cafes, clothing and other unique boutique shops. Check out some of our favourite locally owned and operated businesses including but not limited to; “Rebel Bean Coffee Roasters”, “On Tap - Oil & Vinegar”, “The British Chippy (Fish & Chips Restaurant)”, “Heartland Cafe” and “Bistro Provence 1882 (Fine Dining)”.
Our property has it all, access to local businesses and restaurants, a quiet mature neighbourhood with lots of greenery in the summer and the privacy you crave in a retreat. We back onto a large hill and a number of walking paths perfect for stretching your legs and glimpsing any number of wildlife and birds. We are also only two blocks from the Sheep River which is bordered on each side by paved walking trails - a veritable oasis if there ever was one.
