The Secret Sanctuary Retreat is true to its title, nestled in the woods near Battle Lake. It’s low-tech and oh-so-wonderful with everything you need in a tiny house inside and out. We loved it! The space is just right, cozy, quaint and lovely. It’s an unexpected treat just off from the owners main country house. You can book a wonderful holistic massage at Life by Veona which is an absolute must. Veona sells a host of products and services, amazing! Check out Denika’s beautiful pottery in the studio which you can purchase. Expect the unexpected from what we discovered at this little gem in the woods! Wait, there’s more, the sanctuary has more, Llamas! You can get a selfie, a hug or just feed them. They are incredible! If you are looking for positive energy in your hipcamp experience, we definitely recommend the location, amenities, space and wonderful hosts.

I've stayed at this retreat before back in the summer, but HAD to come check out they're newly offered tiny cabin. I can't say enough good about it, as well as the hosts! It was the perfect retreat for me and two of my friends. I was surprised (in the best possible way) at how many amenities the cabin was filled with. To name a few- board games, tv + DVD, hot plate, coffee/drinks, mini fridge, pull-out bed, and a ton of other well thought out offerings.

The area around the site is just as magical as it was back in the summer. We made ourselves coffee in the morning and wandered around the area, and said some 'good mornings' to the llamas that were also going for their morning walk. It's a peaceful area removed from city life, which is always a much needed break. It's a very calming and quiet place in it's own pocket of nature and surrounded by trees.

It's a short drive from Edmonton, but far enough that the stars come out beautifully at night. This would be the perfect retreat for a couple or for a small family.

I joked about wanting to actually live there but... was it really a joke? Thanks again Denika & Veona, you're awesome!
