Alive Sky Lodge is the perfect place for a quiet walk. Borrow our bikes for a ride through the country. Winter is all about the snow shoeing through the trees. We're only a few Kilometres from Sask Landing and camping near Lake Diefenbaker as well as the Diefenbaker Dam site. Take in a movie at a reel (pardon the pun) Drive-in Movie Theatre - Clearwater Drive-in, after stopping for fries and ice cream at the Hilltop Cafe of course! Need a quick dip at the Rosetown Leisure Center pool or some fun at the spray park? Take your History Buff to the Rosetown Museum and top the night off with a round of minigolf at the Tourism Center and take an ice cream cone to go. Cut some laps around the rink this winter? Bring your skates. Go glow bowling at Rosetown Ball & Pin House and grab some take out from one of our excellent restaurants. Last, but very not least, relax in the hot tub under the stars, or if you're a morning person, take your coffee in our copper mugs and start the day in the hot tub.
Birds, birds, and more birds. What can we say? We're in the middle of a major migratory path and we love it! We often have great horned owls nesting in our yard and can put you in touch with some excellent Snowy owl guides. Some of our birds even reside in our chicken coop. Yes, chickens are in our chicken coop. You can take a selfie with them. #BirdsofInstagram
