Elkin Creek Guest Ranch
Reviewed 11 October 2010

Quite simply this is one of the nicest places on earth to spend some time. The natural beauty of the area is only improved by the totally bespoke service the team provide. We were here on honeymoon and they really raised the bar, nothing was too much effort.

We can't wait to return...

If you are debating weather or not to go to Elkin Creek Guest Ranch, think no more!!

The ranch is a little bit of a drive to get to but well worth it. Once you are there, you will be surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The drive itself was one of the highlights for us as we were fortunate enough to see some of the Wild Horses that call the Nemaiah Valley home.

The staff were all amazing, very warm, friendly, helpful and truly caring. Dave, Susy, Ian, Darcy and Roison all went above and beyond to make our stay very special.

We were greeted with such a warm welcome and were treated to incredibly good food, cozy cabins with amazing views and super comfy beds. Whenever we arrived in the main lodge after being outdoors, a crackling fire was always burning, fresh coffee, hot chocolate, drinks and snacks were waiting as well. Not to mention the three incredibly good meals prepared for us daily by the very talented Ranch Chef, Roison McVeigh.

We spent quite a lot of time around the beautiful herd of horses at the ranch. We went on a spectacular horseback ride along Vedan Lake with views of Tatlow Mountain in the distance. We were all matched with suitable horses for our varying degrees of riding experience and were fortunate enough to have the owner of the Ranch, Dave Milne guide us on our ride. He was helpful, informative and very knowledgeable of the area. Not to mention, incredibly patient with our very inquisitive eight year old son!!

Thanks for making our stay such a special one!!

Being very well travelled we are not easily impressed. However, Elkin Creek truly took our breath away ! It is located in a very remote but stunningly beautiful part of Canada, nestled amongst the mountains, forests and lakes, photographs will never ever do it justice. From the moment we arrived we felt like we’d been there forever and never wanted to leave.

The cabins are rustic but perfectly well equipped and the food was FANTASTIC, do not expect to lose weight !!! The staff were AMAZING and we will never forget some of the experiences and adventures we had together (Elkin Creek you know what we mean !).

There was a wide selection of horses for all riding abilities all of whom were all lovingly looked after. We were able to broaden our riding skills with the collecting and sorting of cattle from the mountains to barrel racing in the arena, we also had so much fun boating on the lake or soaking in the hot tub with a glass of wine. We couldn't even begin to list all the amazing wildlife experiences we had.

If you are considering visiting Elkin Creek do not hesitate a moment longer it will give you more time to save up for the second visit which I guarantee you’ll want to make when the first one comes to an end !

We had an amazing stay here last month as part of a grand tour of British Columbia. We loved the ranch, the cute log cabins, the amazing staff, the incredible food and relaxed and friendly vibe. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff whether it was entertaining our 7 year old son, choosing horses for a nervous beginner rider or spoiling us with amazing home-cooked food. The staff here all seem to love their jobs and this really shows in the care and dedication that goes into the way the whole place is run. We enjoyed fishing, swimming in the lake, canoeing, and of course the superb rides. We would love to visit again one day.

Our family stayed at the Ranch for 5 days in July. This is a small working ranch located in a very remote part of British Columbia. We had a wonderful time - lots to see and do - particularly riding, fishing, wildlife watching and relaxing. My daughter loved the horses and archery. We highly recommend staying at least 5 days to see and experience all the area has to offer. The staff were very helpful. Our horse crazy daughter was able to get her fill of riding on trails and in the small arena. The view from the cabin porch was absolutely amazing. The ranch is very remote which adds to the experience. Look for the wild horses on the way to the ranch.

EXCELLENT. As part of our honeymoon tour of the rockies - a very remote and exclusive place to stay! Well worth the drive. Staff were very helpful, the food was 1st class and the ranch was the best.
Also, put champagne and strawberries in our room as special welcome.

Are you on a trip through British Columbia, Canada, then Elkin Creek Ranch is the ideal stop to repose and hide away in an untouched piece of nature.
