These are the cheapest vacation properties in the Rocky Mountains

Jun 9 2021, 1:39 pm

As Albertans, we’re lucky to have the Rocky Mountains right in our backyard.

That being said, it can get tiring to constantly be booking accommodations, packing a bag, and prepping meals just to spend some time in the mountains.

You may think that only multi-millionaires can afford to have a second home in our province’s majestic natural spaces; however, we’ve rounded up five properties that are a little more affordable.

A lower budget doesn’t mean you have to compromise your standards, as several of these vacation properties offer mountain views, vaulted ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

If you’re thinking about purchasing your own slice of paradise in the Rockies, take a peek at these real estate listings for under $400,000.
