A perfect place!
We really loved our time on Dana's land. I took my son and my dog out there for a night and we enjoyed the fire, field, stars at night and beautiful morning sunrise. The pit toilet was super clean and we had everything we needed. It was the perfect place to disconnect and unwind. Will definitely be back! Thank you!
Loved our two nights at Merlin Ranch. Perfect location away from all the hustle and bustle of Banff and Calgary. Had a good time hanging out with the very friendly dogs and hosts around the fire. Great place to stay.
Peaceful and healing
We loved staying at Dana’s. it was beautiful, and PEACEFUL. It was great to have a covered eating area; be next to the horses; and, have a fresh water source. We went to the Calgary stampede during the days and chilled out at Dana’s in between. It’s a bit of a drive to do that, but it worked out really well for us.
The place is very spacious. If you're planning to have a big group of friends & family camping trip, this place will be perfect. The owners' dogs will welcome you and they are very friendly. Firewood is provided which is a bonus. The pit washroom was clean.
