Campbell Hills Guest Ranch
Reviewed 1 May 2017 via mobile

Just came back from a wonderful weekend at the ranch with my daughter. Although I had ridden before, Bernie showed me a whole new way to treat horses that was so honouring to the horse. The amount of riding far exceeded expectations.
Chef Martin provided us with fabulous food and the accommodations were perfect for the setting. Wifi was spotty but let's face it, I should not be using my phone when I am on an escape weekend with my daughter. Loved the place and will be back.

We had our christmas staff party at the Campbell hills guest ranch. The food and the ambience exceeded our expectations! The following day we woke up to a beautiful white ranch and took part in outdoor activities such as snowshoeing and a sleigh ride!! We will be back!!

The wife and I spent two nights here and loved every minute. The staff were super friendly, the good was phenomenal and the horses were beautiful! We were first time riders, first time on a horse ever and the staff and horses made us feel very comfortable. We can't say enough about this place and will definitely be back! Special thanks to Jessica for her guidance and support and to Martin for the delicious food!

Room Tip: For total privacy, try to book a cabin rather than one of the rooms.

We just finished our 3 night stay at the ranch. From the moment we arrived, to the time that we left, we were treated like royalty.

The Location - simply superb. Nestled away in the BC hillside, deep in the country side, a prime location for taking long rides.

The Ranch - Very new and fresh, excellent main lodgings/saloon, games room upstairs, excellent rooms with en-suite WC and shower, etc.. Great view. A lot of care has gone into this place.

The People - Amazing bunch of folk. The proprietors Bernadette & Martin made us feel so welcome, and mentioned we were "part of the family", which we definitely felt while there. The very talented and hard-grafting staff/wranglers; Jessica, Kim, Rosie, Franzi and Josie ensured that our every need was taken care of. We were lucky to have some great co-guests at the same time, and everything fit together great! I would be remiss to not mention the other two members of staff - Molly & Daisy, the super duper doggies on-site! It was Molly who came running up to intercept us, tail wagging with excitement, as we drove in, barely giving Jessica and Josie the chance to greet us!

The Rides/Horses - an enourmous array of horses (27) - all looked after with personal care and attention. Each one's personality fully understood by the staff. We were assigned two perfectly-fitting horses for our respective skill levels, and the staff ensured our own personalities/energy levels also fitted to the horses. The riding was excellent - some serious trails, even in the rain - we felt at all times very secure and looked after. The half-way cookies were a great touch ;) Slicks, gloves, helmets and boots were made available.

The Food - I must admit, I am more of a "Foodie" than a "Horsie", and so I was simply blown away by the cuisine that Chef Martin put together 3 times a day, with a personal charm that i've not often seen. Coming back from our first ride in the rain, we were delighted to find a fresh pot of coffee on, and some culinary delights ready for us for lunch. The whole format of: Wake up, breakfast -> ride; Lunch, chill -> ride; Dinner, worked extremely well, and was very welcome after each ride.

There is really nothing negative about this place - everything more than exceeds expectations. I don't think i've ever given such a review, but I honestly cannot rate this ranch highly enough.

Thank you Martin, Bernadette, Jessica, Kim, Franzi, Josie, Rosie - it was the highlight of our entire trip.

We will be back!

This is a special place. We have gone two years in a row and cannot wait to go back. Much care goes into everything. If you are interested in natural horsemanship and great care and rehabilitation of horses, this is the place for you. If you would like your food to be prepared with great care and skill, this is also the place for you. If you enjoy nature and beautiful vistas, this ranch is for you. Great hosts, staff, and horses!

This is all a ranch stay should be! Awesome scenery, superb food, knowledgable engaged staff, suitable safe horses and a hands on approach by the business owners. When not riding on the many stunning trails, there are lots of things to do around the ranch including archery, lasso lessons, pool, sauna etc.
If there is a better guest ranch in the wonderful BC - I would like to see it!!!
Worth every cent and more!!

We (2+2) stayed for 5 days at this wonderful remotely located place. Horses were carefully selected for us according to riding experience and physical conditions. The rides took between 2 and 6 hours, and were through densely wooded areas (watch the cattle!!), low lands and along beautiful lakes. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Nice rooms, at (Western European) ****plus-level at least. The owner (a former professional cook) served hearty food, affectionately prepared. The deserts were delicious! Fully Recommended!!!!!
