Breathtaking space

Enjoy the beautiful view and get inspiration from the surroundings. Bow Bench Retreat is located on the hill overlooking the Bow River valley – a peaceful and serene spot for creativity.

Have your lunch on our deck or take a stroll along the hill. You might even be able to see some local wildlife.

We have natural and fluorsescent lighting, a bathroom and a full kitchen so you can prepare your own food. And all of this with an outstanding view of the Bow River valley.


Made for creating

Bow Bench Retreat is a crafter’s paradise. Our 1,200 sq. ft. facility was designed just for sewists: dedicated power outlets, bright lighting, comfortable chairs and tables.

Our studio is spacious so you can spread out. We have extra tools and notions (and sewing machines for rent) so you can get started on your project right away.

If you enjoy quilting, sewing, scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting or crafting in a welcoming community, you’ll enjoy your time at Bow Bench Retreat.

I always look forward to visiting Bow Bench Retreat.
