"Pristine Sanctuary by the River"

Parkland County, near Edmonton, Alberta

  • Log cabin nestled on top of a river valley — no light or sound pollution (20 minutes to the nearest town and 45 minutes to Edmonton)
  • Beautiful natural trail network — ten minute walk to the river
  • Multi-family building opportunity
  • Gateway to the North; three hour drive east of the Rocky Mountains

Very secluded, private and quiet 1/4 section (153 acres) with off-electrical grid log cabin bordering approximately 100 acres of crown land which overlooks the North Saskatchewan River.

Located 20 minutes SW of Stony Plain; 30 minutes SW of Spruce Grove; 45 minutes west of Edmonton; and 45 minutes from the International Airport along quiet and paved roads.

The land consists of mixed deciduous and conifer forest with approximately 70 acres of fenced pasture. Marshland provides habitat for geese, ducks, beavers, moose and deer.

This land lies within the County of Parkland Nature Conservation/River Corridor, and is therefore protected from further subdivision.

  • 1200 square foot log cabin/house utilizes a small solar system for water, lighting and small appliances
  • Natural gas for heating, cooking, hot water, fridge, and ambient lighting
  • Vermont Castings wood stove provides back-up wood heating
  • Two outside generators provide back-up electricity
  • Water hauled from the well (four wells on the 1/4 section, three are active) is stored in an underground 1200 gallon cistern and pumped to storage tanks located in the cabin loft
  • Cabin includes a composting toilet and outhouse
  • Reliable wifi available
  • Corral and animal shelter/chicken coup near the cabin


Due to the size and designation of this land, the County of Parkland allows 2 permanent dwellings, 1 single wide mobile home, and 1 garden suite or tiny home. There is an excellent building site in a meadow near the most active well. An option may exist for ownership of a second title to the adjacent 7 acres, which includes an off-grid 384 square foot log cabin and an excellent building site.

We have lovingly stewarded this land for 23 years, and as we approach retirement, are now ready to find new guardians who will protect the land and creatures who live here. If you are seeking the 'best of both worlds'...peace, privacy, quiet, and the company of wild animals, with close proximity to urban centres, this may be your dream come true.

Price: $875.000.00.
