We had a party of 9 on a snowmobiling vacation at The Fir River Ranch Bed and Breakfast during the last week of Feb. My husband and I have never stayed at a B&B before but I cannot see how this B&B could be beat. The entire basement of a huge house was fantastic for the 9 of us. All 4 couples had an amazing homey room with fantastic beds and the single person in our party had his own room as well. So comfortable!!! We had our own living space with plush leather chairs and couches and loveseats to accommodate all of us. We had a full washroom downstairs with us and always access to the washrooms upstairs. Our hostess was Audrey, is a Red Seal cook who always had fresh from scratch baking all day on the island in her kitchen, fruit , pastries , cookies, treats of all kinds. We asked her to make us 2 of our 4 meals we had in the evening. She made us chicken cordon blue and all the fixins one night and fireside steak with all the fixins for our second meal. . I have never had such delicious 4 coarse meals as she prepared for us. We ate 2 of our evening meals Hudson Bay at Audrey's request to support the local restaurants. She wanted to help her community and due to the size of our party we were happy to ablige. We ate at the2 restaurants which were both very good but were happy to get back to the comforts of Fir River Ranch after. Fir River has a huge 12 bed cabin ,open concept as well as a couple of smaller cabins for less people. The volunteers that help Audry also have their own living quarters cabin in which they all have their own rooms. Audrey"s son Curtis also st
ays with the volunteers in that cabin. Curtis was fantastic . He blew the snow off the snowmobiles in the mornings, got us a speaker to pair our phones to so we could listen to our music while sitting in either of the 2 hot tubs on the property as well as delivered the drinks our husbands made for us. We were spoiled rotten.
The volunteers are from all over the world. They stay for room and board while they work for Audrey. They assist with the cooking as well as clean all the guest quarters . Apparently there is a website to go on to set up these plans.
Audrey has several horses to pull a snow cart in the winter and a wheeled cart in the summer. In the winter there are fantastic trails to follow via a map and double as quad trails in the spring , summer and fall. Beautiful area with wonderful scenery.

Our family spent Easter Weekend at Fir River Ranch and had a wonderful time. Audrey and her team are amazing hosts - the food was delicious, cabin warm and inviting and the freedom to interact with her horses was wonderful. We highly recommend visiting!

We are a group of bikers from Moose Jaw an Gravelbourg , Saskatchewan . We definitely recommend this place for a awesome relaxing time and the breakfast is to die for all the homemade breakfast and very delicious and you definitely don’t leave hungry . The taxi driver to the local bar/restaurant provides a really cool experience. There’s so much to things to see around the property to keep entertained. We definitely recommend this place !!!

Had the most amazing night at the Fir River Ranch. Spent a couple hours in the outdoor hot tub, and the bed was comfy. Everything was very clean. Audrey and the staff were extremely friendly! Breakfast in the morning was delicious and we got to see the horses from the window while we ate.

A coworker and I stayed for a week in June 2023; it was our second time staying in Hudson Bay for work and Audrey's B&B made our visit 100 times better! We stayed in the Cowgirl and Cowboy rooms in the house and it was incredible. The rooms and house were exceptionally clean and comfortable, and we were made to feel right at home when we got there, both by Audrey and the dogs out front! The warm welcome every evening after work from Audrey, her dogs and her beautiful horses made the stay very unique and enjoyable. The entire ranch is so beautiful and there is so much to take in and do while there. The best part about our stay was by far the breakfast, Audrey is an amazing chef! We never had the same meal twice and all the breakfast' was hot and tailored to our needs, which was a very nice treat while working away from home. I'll be booking in again for work soon and have added it to my list of places to return to for a personal trip so that I can spend some time enjoying all that the B&B has to offer and the Hudson Bay area as a whole. I 10/10 recommend booking in here!!!

Audrey, our hostess could not have been more accommodating and make us feel any more welcome!!! She definitely believes in the saying… Make yourself at home, and my home is your home! Her breakfast every morning was absolutely delicious… Cream puffs, cinnamon pastries, cinnamon buns, eggs, bacon, home baked bread, and the list goes on! Our accommodation was cozy, comfortable and very clean. if there was anything we needed, Audrey would’ve helped us at the drop of a pin!

Great place to stay. Very clean and great food! Beds were made for me and my co-workers everyday. Hot tub was maintained well. Bathrooms were clean, cabins were warm and clean. Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in Hudson Bay.

I don't stay in a lot of B&Bs. I think it's because of the one's I've used seem to be where Mom 'n Pop find the kids are off to university or the oil patch and they'd like a few extra bucks from renting our out junior's room. That doesn't work.

The Fir River Ranch is largely purpose built or modified to accomodate guests. The main house gives you private space in the basement or more group space in the out buildings. As a lone traveller, I enjoyed a quiet room in the basement. Good WiFi, big flat screen TV, extra heater (-34 C and blowing outside on a couple of days) and breakfasts better than I make at home. The woodsy pine panelling is so in keeping with the ranch theme and just says warmth.

But the difference really is the warm Saskatchewan personalities of Audrey and Perry. They have decades in HudBay and can tell you anything you need to know about the place. And they have the kind of personalities that just make you feel like you've been friends for years.

And as a bonus for dog lovers, there is a welcoming party of 2 Rotweillers in the driveway. Now for those of you with a touch of phobia for Rotties, these two sweethearts will change all that. They have some husky in them that has given one of them absolutely radiant blue eyes. And they like nothing better than to say hi and get a scratch when you pull in. Of course, a piece of pepperoni or two can make them lifetime friends as well!

I stayed at the Treeline Motel for a couple of nights. There is no comparison. The treeline is a typical small town, tired and worn motel...fine if you just want to crash for a night on the way through. But the Fir River Ranch is well worth staying at if you want an enjoyable, memorable, clean, quality stay in HudBay.

I had the opportunity to stay at Fir River Ranch this past week.
The owners are very friendly and the atmosphere is homey and
comfortable. Audrey is a fantastic cook! There is horsebackriding available
and a real view of northern saskatchewan you can't get in town.
An abundance of wildlife around, I saw 5 deer in one morning.
I would recommend this as the go to place in Hudson Bay.

Fir River Ranch was recommended to me by business associates. I was welcomed by name upon my arrival, and felt at home for my complete stay. I had the option of staying in the house or a cabin. I choose the cabin and was not disappointed. I will stay again and recommend this B&B to anyone.
