Our group of hikers stayed at Elkin Creek Guest Ranch before and after a 6 day hike in the remote Tchaikazan and Yohetta Valleys in Tsylos Provincial park. The Ranch owners collected us from the town of Williams Lake, and also arranged 4WD transport into the start and end points of our hike. They also kindly checked our nightly satellite... More

Our travel company had given us duff instructions so well worth calling the wonderful Susy first to check. Then dead easy to find. Had the most brilliant stay - we felt like family, were well fed (great blueberry pancakes) and interesting/wide-ranging conversations over dinner. John was an excellent guide for our all day trail ride. The best nights' sleep we've... More

If you can imagine the perfect place for a get-away-from-it-all holiday, then Elkin Creek in the Nemaiah Valley, BC, is definitely it… especially if you like some adventure mixed in with your relaxation. Nestling under the enigmatic Mount Tatlow (remember not to point at it!) and next to Vedan Lake, Elkin Creek couldn’t be in a more fortunate setting for... More

An unforgettable memory for all the family. We were immersed into both nature and culture (cow boys and first nation). The accomodations are great (2 bathrooms which is great for a family), pretty, clean and very confortable the food is perfect and the staff is warm. Perfect for families. Plus we were lucky to be there during the Nemaiah Valley... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. It is deeply hidden in one of the most beautiful and unique valleys of British Columbia and has all the natural elements that make a trip through Canada absolutely worthwhile: snowy mountains, densely wooded hills, crystal clear lakes, rushing rivers, animals shyly showing up every so often. It is one of the last places in British Columbia where wildlife still prevails. ... more   less
