Retreat getaway from the metropolis

Peaceful, picturesque, and private describes the location of Mistahiya Lodge in the beautiful Battle River Valley.

Our log daylodge and grounds set the scene for many happy events. Outdoor weddings are especially idyllic and romantic on a lawn surrounded by tall aspen, pine and flowerpots overflowing. We also enjoy hosting family reunions, anniversary parties, youth camps, workshops, staff parties, and retreats.

Please join us and the Battle River Music Society for some of the amazing Roots, Blues, Folk and Celtic music hosted here throughout the year.
Come by the Hills Folk Music Festival is our main annual event that we invite you to participate in every August (2nd. weekend). Awesome music from across Canada! Camp and have fun with family and friends.

Enjoy birdwatching on the 7.5 km trail that runs west along the river, or come Nordic skiing along with the Wainwright Outdoor Club. Hike the slopes at Mistahiya for a breath-taking view of the river; the wildflowers here are spectacular!

Our goal is to provide a lovely, green space for your special event and to allow room for appreciation of the great gifts of nature.

Cliff, Kate, Allan, Marsha and Tom
