Ntj meal with a view

Solitude, isolated, and secluded may not be words that appeal to many until it comes time for a backcountry vacation getaway.

Finding your “out of the way” location shouldn’t be a big hotel in an undesirable area of town. Backcountry getaways are places where you leave your stress behind, change your scenery and relax into the simplicity of your surroundings.

Perhaps you are seeking solitude for a romantic couple’s getaway or maybe it’s simply to catch up on your reading. The Charming Inns of Alberta backcountry getaways are accommodations that are characterized as being a bit off the beaten path and where the only neighbours are wildlife.
