You know of Cochrane. You’ve probably been out here for ice cream, or a game of golf. Maybe stopped by on your way to the mountains, or Ghost Lake. Undoubtedly you said to yourself “Oh, now this is the life. Wouldn’t it be sweet to live in the shadow of the Rockies without all the hustle and bustle.” Then you got in your car and drove right back to the hustle and bustle, musing about the day you could live west.

Well the day has arrived. (Actually it arrived in 1881 when the great Cochrane Ranche launched a ranching heritage that thrives to this day.)

Cochrane is changing the way people look at life. Instead of work hard/sacrifice/ retire/start living, we have moved “start living” to the front of the line. And people are coming from far and wide to do so.

Come explore what Cochrane has to offer.
A quality of life beyond expectation
