“Ranch stay”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

What a fantastic experience!! 2 adults and a 9 year old child for a three night stay - our only regret is we didn't book for a week! We are novice riders, we can all trot comfortably but no more than that, however, all levels of experience was accommodated. The wranglers were friendly, horses chosen to suit our ability and rides designed to meet our needs. We met a range of nationalities at the ranch and all had fun. The accommodation was clean and authentic, food was plentiful and tasty and the evening entertainment was great fun!! All the kids had a great time but adults without children also enjoyed themselves. I cannot recommend this experience enough - it was brilliant.

Room Tip: All cabins seemed great.

We spent 6 nights at Three Bars last week and can't say enough great things. It is the perfect place for a family adventure. With young kids and as beginner riders, we were a little worried about how we would all do. Well, it couldn't have been any better. The horses are incredibly patient and the wranglers are unbelievable. Our kids were trotting within a day and we weren't far behind. As a family ranch, Tyler, April, Jenna, and the rest of the amazing crew make you feel welcome and comfortable from the moment you arrive. The accommodations were terrific and the scenery is just awe inspiring. And, for those who don't want to ride every day, there is a host of other activities, including hiking, river rafting, shooting, fly fishing, you name it. My kids told me this was the best vacation we've taken EVER! The only question left is how we are going to top this next year...it might have to involve a return trip to Three Bars. Thank you to everyone for an unforgettable time, and a special shout out to the Wranglers!

With our own horse for the week and a Wrangler to guide us, we rode every day. We explored trails through the woods, crisscrossed the plateau and wandered the banks of the St. Mary River.
Some of us took riding lessons in the afternoon, while others of us hiked, went swimming, river rafting and relaxed on the spacious lawn.

The working cattle ranch is family owned, and we felt like special guests in this beautiful corner of British Columbia. The ranch is an all inclusive resort with warm and gracious hospitality.
In addition to the horses there is a tennis court, hot tub, indoor swimming pool, billiard table, foosball, volley ball, archery, shooting lessons, lasso lessons and more.

We are a family of three generations, ages ten to eight, and there were activities for everyone.

The log lodge is the center of activity of the ranch. Private cabins are arranged around a manicured lawn. The cabins are decorated with western decor and feature hand hewed log furniture with private full bathrooms.

The Wranglers and the Beckley Family are delightful hosts, making the Dude Ranch experience memorable.

Room Tip: There are twenty cabins and all equally good. The size and configuration would depend on the number...

We've just spent a week at the 3 Bars Ranch. The staff were great - really friendly and helpful - and we enjoyed the riding, my kids enjoyed the skeet shooting and rafting, and I managed to pack in a couple of afternoons fly fishing and caught half a dozen trout. The accommodation was comfortable and everything was well organised - with enough flexibility for us to do what we wanted.

We are over 60 and had no previous experience of horse riding but that didn't matter. Our horses were allocated according to our ability, and the wranglers took good care of us. We didn't ride every day but there was plenty of alternative activities (hiking, white water rafting, indoor pool, golfing nearby, and even panning for gold!).

It didn't matter if you were couples, family or single guests as everyone mixed in.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had an amazing time - I didn't want to leave!

Room Tip: The cabins were very quiet

If you are looking for a ranch to go to look no more. Beautiful mountains wonderful people, great riding, great food, many different activities, wildlife all around you, and clean cabins. Our stay at Three Bars was the best vacation we have ever experienced. I would highly recommend this ranch if you are looking for a ranch to go to.

My wife and I visited this wonderful ranch for five superb days of riding, whitewater rafting, skeet shooting, great food, and tremendous hosts. Tyler, his family, and the entire wrangler Team are simply the best. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning. Laura, Courtney, Don, and Rowan -- part of the excellent wrangler team -- are a true pleasure to spend time with on the trail, enjoying excellent ranch fare, and simply laughing and singing during relaxation times. Tyler and the whole Team did an excellent job selecting the perfect horses for us based on the pre-trip questionnaire, and adjusting our tack to our preferences once we got there. Then there are the other guests we met while there -- especially a couple from England -- were having such an excellent time, that they made our time at the ranch even more special.

The couple we travelled with, my wife, and I keep telling our other friends and colleagues that this is the place to go if you enjoy horse rides thru amazingly beautiful country, friendly people, comfortable accommodations, and excellent hosts.

Room Tip: All the rooms were individual log cabins with all the modern accessories, so they are all great.
