    Great service and beautiful venue

    Hosted my wedding reception at the RancheHouse and loved it. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. The venue was beautiful and we loved the outdoor area in the back. Would recommend.

    Perfect View

    The venue was absolutely amazing. Not for someone who is trying to be price sensitive but having them set everything up and not needing to rent all the linens was such a time/headache saver. Jane is amazing to work with and will do anything she can to make the night exactly what you want of it!

    The Cochrane RancheHouse was our dream wedding location and definitely made our wedding day a dream come true! My husband and I grew up in Cochrane and we knew the Cochrane Ranchehouse was the place to get married. Jane was amazing to work with and was always there to answer any questions we had. The ceremony and reception were set up beautifully and we couldn't have asked for a better place to get married!

    It was 'love at first sight' for my fiance and I when we first visited this beautiful Venue for our wedding. Being only 15 minutes away from most of my family in the Calgary NW, it was only a plus! This venue had various rooms to choose from and a beautiful outdoor space that provided a breathtaking view both in the winter and the summer...although we did not end up having our ceremony outside, it was the perfect spot for families to lounge around during cocktail hour and for family photos. The beams and flooring in both the Hall of Vision and the Chinook Dining Room provided a natural back drop that looked great with both minimal and elaborate decoration ideas. We loved being able to hang string lights on the beams...and we were even provided with ladders.

    Jane was the venue coordinator who had introduced us to the space, and it was honestly her wonderful and caring personality that made the decision to go with the Cochrane Ranchehouse that much easier! She explained every little detail to us and we never felt left in the Dark with both costs and decisions that we could make. Even though we kept changing table and chair layouts near our date, she worked patiently and kindly with me to make sure that our dream wedding came true. Our guests provided us with many lovely comments about the venue, and how they felt treated to such a elegant yet comfortable atmosphere as they joined us on our special day.
