The Herdsman's House, located one hour south of Winnipeg, just off Hwy 75, is a quiet and conducive place to retreat and create. This four season house is equipped with a queen sized bed, two single schlope benkjs (sleep bench), bedding, a fully equipped kitchen, full private bathroom, high speed Internet, writing desk, and good natural light . The Krahn Barn, also on the property, features a large art studio, concert venue, access to a piano, and an additional guest room with private bathroom facilities. If the Banff Arts Centre is beyond your means or too far away, consider The Herdsman's House in Neubergthal.

We welcome artists of various disciplines, as well as non artists who want to retreat.

"Over the past few years, I have been fortunate enough to spend some quality artistic retreat time at the Herdsmen House. The sonic soundscape of birds, insects, (in summer), the big sky of the prairies and the incredible hospitality of Paul and Margruite Krahn, have helped me as a composer to complete some major works.  I always find a sense of peace and beauty in my time their, along with being able to work out my creative ideas in such a wonderful environment.  It will always be my special place to write and create."

  - Andrew Balfour (composer, Artist Director Camerata Nova)

"Everytime I have played The Krahn Barn I have felt welcomed and appreciated as an artist. The venue is a gem full of character and life."                                
    - Alexa Dirks (singer/songwriter - Chic Gamine, New Lightweights)

"The Krahn Barn is a magical place, a haven where people and performers meet to explore community and the transcending power of words and music. I can't wait to get back there." 
    - Mel Braun ( Baritone/performer, Associate Professor, Desaultes School of Music, U of M)
