Beautiful Country --- Big Bar Ranch is located in one of the most stunning areas of Canada-- I stayed here during the summer of 2015 and I'm still dreaming of the mountain plateaus, long evening sunsets, early morning canoe paddles and hikes through the mountains. What makes Big Bar special is it is not a luxury resort selling a 'tourism...

We arrived so excited for this trip and were sorely disappointed. The window sills were full of dead flies and the counter and cabinets had mouse droppings everywhere. There was no wood for the wood stove and we paid for a 6 1/2 hr ride and got a 4 1/2 ride and then the wrangler said he forgot about the...

Oh Ruth, how saddened I am to find this here and after we did have a very pleasant conversation on the phone. Yes, it may have taken us some time to connect but as it is winter time many of our chores keep us out doors tending to the animals and the office is only open limited hours. We were...

I visited this ranch 3 years ago and this time my brother wanted to come along as I had such a great time. We found everything about the ranch just as it was advertised. My brother hasn't been on a horse in over 40 years and they matched his riding ability perfectly with the right horse. There were 6 guests...

Our typical bookings are made well in advance. We are a very rural location, 2.5 hours from where we do our bulk shopping.... When you all pulled in, you were totally unexpected and about an hour before dinner was to be served. I believe there was at least a dozen in your group. You looked weathered and tired, asking about...

We came from Australia and so we are used to wide open spaces for riding but this was the best we have experienced. The scenery and geography of Big Bar and surrounds made for wonderful riding. I was also impressed by the quality of the horses - they were quiet when required but full of energy at the right time....

I have been a regular of a few ranches for quite a few years, and every year I think I have had my favorite ride. This week I had a ride that will stay at the top of my list for a very long time. I cannot begin to describe the golden meadow that we loped across. You will have...

My wife and I spent 3 nights in the ranch and four days. We were immediately welcomed by the staff and it was a friendly atmosphere. Room was small but OK. It doesn't really matter as we were always busy outside and we were not really spending time within the room. I made my first ride (half day) with a...

Thanks so much for sharing your experience at Big Bar Ranch!.The Farm animals are certainly popular with families and children enjoy bottle feeding our young cows and meeting Penelope the pig! There's never a dull day at the Ranch! We hope to see you again one day and wish you the best in your travels.

Well trained horses and a very friendly and helpful staff made this a memorable riding holiday. The wranglers offer instruction and work hard to make your riding comfortable and a lot of fun. The food and accommodation were both very good. We stayed in a lovely log cabin overlooking a gorgeous little lake and valley.

Thank you for taking the time to reflect on your stay with us at Big Bar Guest Ranch! Our Cabins are truly a special retreat. Often, guests can observe the teeming wildlife on the lake from their private patios. This morning I saw some beaver, grouse, a deer, and I was told the riders saw a bear cub! We are...
