These included another family from the Netherlands, a family...

My Dad and I were traveling some back roads of the Chilcotin and arrived here late in the afternoon. The meals are a set menu type thing (though they apparently will make adjustments for dietary considerations. They checked and had a room for us and also had enough out for dinner that they could include us. This worked out very...

This rustic Guest Ranch is located about 45 minutes outside of Clinton, B.C. You know you are heading for a Western experience as you travel on the well-maintained gravel road.

Our experience at Big Bar was terrific. Riding is a great experience; we took a number of different trails so we had a new experience on each trail. The wild life is amazing; we saw a bear, a number of beaver and a large variety of birds, including cranes, bald eagles and brilliantly colourful blue jays. The cabin was spacious,...
