Champêtre (pronounced sham-pate county ) is having to do with the country side,
nature, outdoors, and the literal translation is “to be in the field”.

All pieces at champetre county connect as if it was a puzzle. All having a special story to tell.
The Saloon is our main hall, this hall was built out of repurposed wood from 6 different houses. Our general story or chickadee café was a one room School House where the Sheriff went to school back in the day. Finally, the town hall, where most special occasions are held such as barn dances, weddings, conferences and more.
Champetre County offers many unique experiences and packages throughout the year. Located only 30 minutes east of Saskatoon, making it a short drive out into the country.
