BEAUTY, PEACE and exceptional rejuvenation. These are the virtues that make Turtle Creek Lodges and Gardens famous with dozens of regular guests from around the world – people who’ll tell you this place is the highlight of their summers. And while destinations everywhere claim to be exceptional, very few have the one thing that Turtle Creek does.


Two discerning, hard-working people can make great things happen in 33 years of labour and love, and this is what sets Turtle Creek apart from most other summer destinations. Jack and Joyce Varieur began building their Turtle Creek dream in 1982 and they’ve invested themselves deeply into the place ever since. Watch the video below for a personal tour of their life’s work.
