St.Amant Spirit Cottage

The St.Amant Foundation welcomes you to the $1M St.Amant Spirit Cottage by Hans Kraus Family & Qualico. The Spirit Cottage is fully accessible and will allow children and adults supported by St.Amant to connect with nature, play in an inspiring and safe environment, enjoy spontaneous adventure and delight in recreation year-round!

The four-season cottage is equipped with lifts, a wheelchair ramp, three bedrooms and has all the amenities one needs for a memorable weekend getaway, including an in-ground pool, fire pit and generous decking. With the support of many generous donors, this project will help ensure the individuals and their families we support will have a warm and relaxing recreational option that is inclusive and accessible for all. Located on the riverbank behind St.Amant in St. Vital, visitors won’t have to travel far to relax.

Please contact your program representative to book today! Program representatives:

Please know that not every process will be perfect and that we are relying on the early users to give the project team good feedback on what works well and what can be improved.
