As proud owners of the Mistahiya Retreat Centre, Kathie and Cliff Brown can be seen helping out where ever they can, at whatever event is being hosted. This couple has long been dedicated to environmental causes, and this is very evident throughout the property. Having grown up and raising their family in rural east-central Alberta, either of your hosts can fill you with stories of the good ‘ol days, teach you about all the natural beauty of the area, and captivate you with their understanding of music and the arts in general. Cliff is a well known piper, who can been seen donating his time and expertise on the pipes all across the region. He also enjoys throwing down some classics on the mandolin. Kathie also demonstrates a real affinity for various percussion instruments, particularly the drums. The long-range goals of the Retreat Centre are a reflection of the owner’s philosophy.
Currently, these goals are:
- To develop soft-adventure tourism programs and encourage wilderness appreciation.
- To manifest a site for amenities migration interests and a cooperative green community.
- To practice sustainable living by remaining off-grid, by introducing green energy, and by the promotion of permaculture.
- To share the property with as many “getting away from it all” guests as possible!
