The Ranch at Siwash Lake

Our top-rated luxury dude ranch at Siwash Lake is a private holiday haven for families and couples. Arriving here, you'll be amazed at how you ever found this off-grid ranch hideaway in the remote wilds of western Canada.

The ranch is set in a secure and secretive location with a huge buffer to the pressures and distractions of the modern world.

At first, you may be taken aback by the blackened forests that line our 5km private drive — striking, silent sentinels bearing homage to the forest fire that blazed through the area in August 2017.

But when you see the ranch emerging as a lush oasis amid the burn, teeming with new growth, pause, take a breath. Look around at this pastoral setting...

You’ll see many features of a working ranch — horses grazing in the meadow, playful collies that greet you at the door, and chickens free-ranging for crickets in the grass.

Piglets root about in their pen behind the barn and a few cattle lay relaxing together along an authentic wooden 'Russell' fence-line.

Sense the Magic

You’ll inhale an aroma of wildflowers, fresh cut hay, and wood smoke. Swallows swoop and chatter happily, while gossamer-winged dragonflies dart among the reeds at lake shore.

Cariboo sunshine radiates warmth from an expansive sky and a gentle breeze caresses your skin. 

Stress dissolves. Worries evaporate. You ponder the possibilities ahead...

Whether you're in pursuit of new adventures each day — roaming the range on horseback, hiking to waterfalls, casting for trout — or your idea of heaven is to curl up in the hammock with a good book, the magic of Siwash Lake soon seeps into your soul.
