St. Ann Ranch

St. Ann Ranch

Kneehill County is proud to highlight the Agripreneurs and Businesses that make our community great.

St. Ann Ranch Country Inn located in a sheltered valley near Trochu, Alberta, can be your year-round escape from everyday life.

It was 50 years ago when Louis and Lorene Frere purchased the property from his grandparents, Ernest and Marthe Frere. Following extensive research, renovations, and antique collecting St. Ann Ranch Teahouse and Bed and Breakfast opened on July 1, 1989. In December of 2000, their son Tom and wife Holly became owners of the business and property and operate it to this day. The pride the Frere’s take in their business is evident through the warm reviews and testimonials left by their guests. When asked what advice Holly has for others starting out in the industry, she notes “make as many connections as you can, you never know which businesses you can work with along the way.”

The property is a provincial historic site, being the original site of the Town of Trochu. Seven onsite museums and an interpretive centre feature the history of the region. Their clean, comfortable rooms are furnished with antiques and collectibles and all the modern conveniences. Most rooms in the country inn have private baths. The Ranch is ideal for family stays, scrapbookers, quilters, women’s retreats, groups of friends, and B&B guests for short or long-term stays. Their 30-room mansion and adjacent cabin can accommodate up to 21 people. St. Ann Ranch has large, well-maintained grounds ideal for weddings, family reunions, and other outdoor events. The cabin offers you a deluxe suite or superior room. They can even plan your wedding day.

St Ann Ranch remains open and continues to follow all Provincial COVID-19 and AHS hotel guidelines. Call Holly to learn more about how they keep you safe during your stay!
