I recently got married at the Lougheed House. It was without a doubt the wedding of my dreams. The resturant helped with everything. We meet a few times to sort out what we were imaging in my head and they created a beautiful, romantic day, that any bride will never forget. I would recommend this venue to any couple that... More

The Lougheed House is a beautifully restored historic house in Calgary. I've been fortunate to visit it for a number of different events which included a lunch or a dinner. It is worth a visit to experience both the ambiance of the house, as well as the beautiful grounds and gardens.

My most recent visit to Lougheed House was a reminder that I don't visit enough. The last time I visited there was an art association in the basement and it has been a few years since they left :) Lougheed House is really a local treasure. It's hard to imagine that it was built on the edge of the city... More

I just spent the loveliest rainy afternoon at the Lougheed House! The current show 'Daring Deco' is a fun and fabulous overview of 20's fashion in Alberta and it was great to see the flashy styles of the prairie ladies! I especially loved the black number with the fringe - so flapper, yet so Alberta! Paired with jazz music and... More

Lougheed house is a bit hard to find but makes for an interesting visit. This is the home of the senator Lougheed, important in Alberta's early history. The house is well preserved and has innovations (for the time) like the heating system. The historic home can be booked for special events and occasions.

It is a painstakingly restored version of the original 3 storey homestead (narrow stairs! but has elevator access) and even has converted one of the staterooms into a working restaurant! Audio tour using handheld device available for price of admission but plenty of information placards on display if reading is your thing! The curator and staff are incredibly knowledgeable so...

We were planning a day at Drumheller when we saw that Lougheed House was featuring an exhibit on the clothing from the 20's. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey, I would highly recommend the visit. It is a small distraction from the day, but the staff and curator have organized a great display of local clothes and explanations... More
