About Diane Anderson

We are a semi-retired couple who have owned Tranquillo since 2013. We used to camp off road along the Elbow River back in the early '80's and the place has had a special place in our hearts ever since. Diane is a psychotherapist and John is a private rail contractor but we love to travel--especially to Italy and the West Coast of Canada. We spend lots of time with our extended families, and we are currently busy building a new home in the Calgary.

Diane Anderson purchased this house in 2014

Why Diane Anderson chose Bragg Creek

Bragg Creek has always been a special place for us! John always wanted a log home and Diane has always loved the peace and quiet of the outdoors. Bragg Creek has lots to offer--its close to the city and and hour from Banff and the Rocky Mountains. The village of Bragg Creek has coffee shops, a good grocery story, wine stores and unique gift shops. Tranquillo Ranch is a few miles away from the "hustle and bustle" of the village so you have the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

From the hand-carved door to the beautiful hand-scraped Douglas fir lots that span the length of the house, Tranquillo has so much to offer for enjoying your time in the Foothills.

We are very pleased that we found this property! There is so

much to do here in this area of Alberta. It was so peaceful to come home here at the end of a busy day. We shared this VRBO with another family and it was very accommodating.

Perfect piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this secluded cabin from the inside to the outside. Everything we needed was available in this comfortable, homey cabin. Diane has thought of everything that we might need from spices, condiments, dishes, pans ( even reading glasses) in the kitchen to extra little things throughout the cabin. We loved the screen porch and the ability to barbecue. We watch the wild life enjoy the beautiful scenery of the beautifully landscaped grounds. We highly recommend this property and we hope that someday soon we can come back and stay longer. Truly wonderful stay! Incredible hosts!

Cozy beautiful escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

The photos capture the beautiful escape we had at Tranquillo. It is such a beautiful home in a beautiful spot and Diane gave us such a warm welcome. We would have no hesitation recommending this place to others. The place seems so remote but is such a short drive into town if you need anything. One word to summarize...wonderful!
