I want to give thanks to the guy who worked at the main desk on Thanksgiving Day weekend. Didn't get his name but said he was from Calgary like myself. I've gone to the Robson Valley over a dozen times in the past decade and kept hearing and seeing advertisements about the Terracana Ranch Resort. Even keep driving by it when I've stayed in McBride and see a big sign outside Valemount. Said to myself one of these times I'll check it out as I thought there was a museum as I thought the sign saying Artisan meant that. As I came upon the site on Thanksgiving Day and went inside the main lobby. I was greeted and probably gave him something to do as there was no reservations when I came. I came just to check it out and thought there was a museum as well which there wasn't. However I was gladly given a tour of the main building from the dining hall, looking at the Fraser River views and the older style games room in the basement. Also appreciated all the older artificats that I took pictures of. Being from Calgary and it's known for its western heritage and hospitality. The ranch building felt like the old west and home. Of course we talked about the cabins and shared stories in the Robson Valley. Did mention it's busier in the winter for snowmobilers so autumn was a slower time of year after the summer. It was a great visit without staying overnight and kinda got what I was seeking in an unexpected way as I thought there was a museum. Would consider booking a stay if budget allows one year I visit the Robson Valley but I want management to give thanks for the tour. Was a nice surprise visit and the views are great in the area.…
Nice cottages, clean complete (with outdoor grill) very helpful staff. The location is a bit remote, it takes 30 km to the nearest village for restaurants or shops, take that into account. No internet in the cottages as well, but television and DVD player. If yo want to have WIFI go to the playroom, a very good equipped place with table football, billiard TV, DVD player and game console. The fireplace is a of a gas burning type. The grill as well works on gas and is easy to use. But most of all the silence!
We were on the road with the truck and camper.and we saw this place along the highway we decided to pull in. It was in the early evening already . We saw someone sitting at their trailer. So we asked how we register. He said pick a spot. The tv portion is still under construction so if you like it pay at the office I'm the morning if you didn't like it just leave. Lol so we chose a spot and got set up then one of the owners came out and was super friendly they told us the same thing. We decided to take a stroll on the property it was huge!!! And amazing they have a beautiful set up. Lots of area to explore right to the river. There are fire pits around and a teepee to have a fire in of you like. They even have an entertainment room and a games room open 24hrs with free wifi. And hundreds of movies to watch. There are cabins and a restaurant and and outdoor eating area. We did not see it in action but it all was done up amazing!!! I would definitely recommend this place. There are no trees in the tv section yet but they are working on that .. I know that this will be an amazing place once the RV section is completed. Either way I would stay again for sure. It would be a great place for families as well …
These guys are real good people. The rooms were super clean and they had all the amenities. You can go to the super wicked games room where they have ping pong and pool and darts and fooz ball and a poker table and a huge tv with lots of movies also board games. We had a fire in one of their many tipi's and we had plenty of area to explore. Good spot overlooking the river. The staff was very friendly. Thanks Terracana, very cool.
restful and peaceful... lots of trails and rivers and creeks to explore on the property... staff was helpful and friendly... pet friendly, which was perfect... moderate drive to Valemount and also moderate drive to several tourist sites
Great spot and v peaceful by the Fraser River. Place v clean and good facilities. The location is convenient for Valemount and heading towards Jasper for hikes. Definitely visit the little museum in Valemount.
The cottages are nice, clean and with lots of space BUT for arrivals after 4 pm, you just grab your key in an envelope, nobody to welcome you! For breakfast nothing at all, not at least a cup of milk or a bagel, even if you ask for it at the reception ( what they call reception....). Your only option is to drive 25 mn to find a little shop to buy them. No advice at all about what to see or do in the area, .. we really felt we were disturbing them... and the worst was that in the morning we found in the bathroom a nice very little mouse sticked on a glue trap. we tried to rescue her with our kids but we only saw her die of exhaustion..... do not recommend at all. The place could have been wonderfall..... what a pity!
Travelling from Vancouver/Whistler, Kamloops, this was a nice stop before going on to Canmore. No-one here when we arrived (8pm?) Ranch lodges are quaint with good facilites in each lodge, BBQ. Very quiet - near the river and you can just hear the trans canada railway. Bit expensive (£145 per room). The facility at the top has a gym (didn't use, and a quaint bar with good views - so disappointed this wasn't open :( Nothing else to do locally but of course fantastic walking country
We only stayed one night so we really did not get a chance to take full advantage. They do everything they can to make your stay pleasant. Nice log cabin accommodations. Renovated, rustic with many modern touches. Isolated location so you must plan for meals. The restaurant is currently closed. Nearest restaurant for dinner is 12 minutes away on highway (River Cafe). Closest breakfast is 25 minutes away (Mt Robson Cafe). Cabins do have kitchen and barbecue but no stove. Satellite TV but WiFi only available at the main lodge and is super slow. No cell coverage at the cabins.
We stayed here for one night as part of a longer road trip. We chose it because they accept dogs in some of their cabins. We arrived after their reception closed but the key was left with a map and a note that the power in the area was out. We found the cabin easily. It was clean and tidy although the smell of smoke from the fireplace was quite strong - especially since it is the summer and the fireplace was out of order. The area is beautiful and there are lots of places to walk. This was great for the dog. The one thing I didn't like about the place is that the cabins are connected in groups of 4 meaning you are very close to your neighbours. It turned out our neighbours had a daughter who was afraid of dogs and as we stepped out our door she went into hysterics. This meant we could sit outside our cabin. Awkward but not really the fault of the resort. If you're the kind of traveler who likes to meet other travellers, then this would be great, but if you want something a bit more secluded, this may not be ideal.…
