Welcome to Square Butte Ranch


Square Butte Ranch is a place like no other. It was built to capture the romance and spirit of the west. We are a bare land condominium private recreational ranch on 480 acres of paradise in the Rocky Mountain Foothills. Nestled between prairie skies and majestic mountains the landscape features a mixed coniferous and deciduous tree cover which frames an open meadow and focus one’s eye on Mesa Butte, a major landform 1.5 km west.


Square Butte Ranch is adjacent to Kananaskis Country, Alberta’s recreational playground. Ranch residents can directly access Kananaskis Country by horseback, hiking, biking or x-country skiing through the Ranch’s west or north gates. Square Butte’s proximity to Kananaskis Country provides homeowners with abundant wildlife including deer, moose, elk, fox, coyote, muskrat, beaver, cougar, and black bear. We also share the ranch with great grey owls, hawks, ravens, Canada geese, whiskey jacks, blue jays, bluebirds, chickadees, nuthatches, quails, and many migratory birds.


Set amidst generations of ranching families, the Ranch’s centre has a vibrant Old West ambience. As you enter the main gate your eyes are immediately drawn to horses grazing in the meadows. Amenities include a saloon, barn, outdoor riding arena, pen and equine trails. The community also attracts nature and recreational enthusiasts offering an abundance of walking, hiking and biking trails and other opportunities such as a trout stocked pond, birding or just gathering with your neighbours for a visit, a group dog walk or unwinding in the saloon. Square Butte is a remarkable community just 45 minutes southwest of Calgary, offering a unique and peaceful country experience.
