Big House at Brewster’s Kananaskis Guest Ranch

Stay in the fabulous Big House at Brewster’s Kananaskis Guest Ranch to experience a living piece of ranching history.

The Big House at Brewster’s Kananaskis Guest Ranch is a true taste of local history stretching back almost a century.


In 1923, Missy Bagley Brewster commissioned the building of the Big House – a beautiful guesthouse on the Brewster Family Homestead land. The Big House was designed as a way to open the doors of the Ranch to the public, and invite guests to come and sample a taste of ranch life. This venture began drawing in guests from all over the world to experience the beauty of the area and enjoy a western-themed adventure along the Bow River’s shores. Notable guests over the years have included the Disney, Eaton and Woodward families.
