Visit our Victorian mansion this season!

Just as the Lougheed family did when they first moved into this House at Christmas in 1891, you can find the Christmas spirit in the warmth and character of "Beaulieu" (French for "beautiful place"), Alberta's most famous mansion for the past 130 years. Enjoy Christmas decorations (newly created for 2021) professionally integrated into our 20 + rooms and nooks, 11 fireplaces, 30 stained glass windows, turrets, banisters, staircases, hardwood floors, decorative high ceilings, vintage pianos, and an organ.

Here you can discover the origins of the House and early Calgary, have your holiday Weekend Brunch, Lunch or Dinner with friends, take your family's selfie in the seasonally decorated room of your choice and buy local artisan-made crafts in our Shop.

Our 2021 Christmas designers are:

  • Scottland Pugh
  • Ekaterina Shagaeva of Dream Design & Decor
  • Swantje Macke-Monteiro of SAMM European Design
  • Lindsey Zess

Lougheed House is open Thursdays & Fridays from 11-4, and Saturdays & Sundays 10-4 until Dec. 22. Free parking.
