Ghostown Blues

Here at Ghostown Blues you can experience the organic beauty that remains in the craftsmanship preserved in our high quality, unique accommodations.  Sit by the fire and enjoy the quiet solitude while you enjoy the sunset. Put your feet up on the veranda & enjoy a glass of wine or have your supper out of the back of an original 1925 chuck wagon.  Experience the historic buildings, wagons and structures Greg has spent many years acquiring, relocating and restoring from the pioneer years on the Canadian Prairies. Ghostown Blues is one of, if not the only place in Canada where you can experience a feeling of connection to the land and spirit the early settlers must have felt when they risked it all for a better life in a new land.

Ghostown Blues is also a great venue for weddings, family reunions, conferences, holiday parties, and more.

Southwest Saskatchewan is brimming with activities and attractions to keep visitors busy and entertained. Tourism Saskatchewan and the Cypress Hills Destination Area websites are great guides to everything this area has to offer. Here are some of the highlights.

Maple Creek
Only a kilometer from Ghostown Blues, the town of Maple Creek has a wide range of attractions, services, and events. First established in 1882 by a construction crew building the Canadian Pacific Railway, Maple Creek quickly became the center of a large area of farmers and ranchers. Maple Creek is proud of its 'cowtown' heritage and maintains its atmosphere as a ranching community, where the past is present. Maple Creek's historical main street has two museums, two art galleries, boutiques, and the best dining between Calgary and Regina.  A Farmers Market (Fridays), grocery store,  two pharmacies, the Daily Grind coffee shop, and camping supplies can also be found in Maple Creek.

Our favorite restaurants in Maple Creek include The Star Cafe and Grill and The Rockin' Horse.

Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park
A forest oasis surrounded by the Great Plains, first-time visitors to Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park are surprised to find Lodgepole Pine forests and rugged mountain-like terrain.  The park is comprised of two parts, with Ghostown Blues positioned at the crossroads between them.  The Center Block has a lively cottage community with modern amenities like a swimming pool and golf course, as well as well-established hiking trails, fishing, and countless events to keep your family busy all day.  The less-developed West Block offers kilometers of trails, secluded getaways, and more great fishing for a day away from crowds. Fort Walsh National Historic Site, birthplace of the Northwest Mounted Police, can also be found in the West Block.

T. Rex Discovery Centre
The area around the town of Eastend, south of the Cypress Hills, is known as 'Dino Country' and is rich with natural history and dinosaur fossils. The T. Rex Discovery Centre is home to Scotty, a rare, nearly complete skeleton of a Tyranesaurous Rex, as well as many other exhibits of the prehistoric world. The Discovery Centre is perfect for the whole family and often holds 'Dino Day Camps' for kids.
