I had the opportunity to take my son to Rafter Six to celebrate his 10th birthday this month. We signed up for the high ropes course, lunch, and 2 hour horseback ride after lunch. Nicki, who lead the high ropes course was very knowledgeable and helpful, and really made our experience special. The lunch was a lovely steak dinner, and... More

Great place for horse lovers and rafters. Stunning views of the Rockies! Sporty. Beautiful chiseling/carving of native scenes in parts of the restaurant. Nice gift shop. Humor as well. Very nice quesadilla's! Served when we were really hungry, at an odd time (4pm) without any problem.

Beautiful scenery but overpriced room. Only had a double bed, was expecting a queen. Bathroom very small. Breakfast was good, cozy dining area. The next night we were in Banff and had a much nicer and much bigger room for almost the same price.

Stayed for a night in the lodge paid $500.00 for one night accomadation in a very tiny un-appealing room, two hour horse back riding for two and three meals that were at best very average! The whole idea of being a ranch with no frills is totally fine with me, i love rustic but rustic can still be upkept and... More

Rafter 6 resort is everything it should be. No frills, no lace, just home comfort with amazing staff and adventures. We did the white water rafting, starting at "the widow maker" and spending 5 hours of the best fun you can have in freezing, Rocky mountain water. This was followed by a gut busting BBQ, of excellent quality. We had... More

The location and overall appearance of the Ranch is stunning. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Having gained most of our info from their website we were looking forward to the food and activities. It appears that the chef profiled on the website is no longer there as the only dining room choices offered were from the lounge menu. As a... More

I went to Rafters Six Ranch as part of a staff retreat. We were there for one day only. Our activities included the cowboy college which I found a little immature for 40 adults but imagine kids would love it. We also took part in a mini rodeo which was fun for all involved. We had lunch, bison burger buffet,... More

What a great place to spend a quite weekend away from all the big city distractions. Staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. Meals are great. The 2 hour Ride and walks made for a fantastic and memorable weekend.

Rafter Six Ranch is definitely not for everyone, but if it's for you, you will love it! You pay for the views. The rooms are basic and there is no phone or tv, but why would you be hanging out in your room when you could be horseback riding through the rocky mountains or traversing a ropes course high up...
