Once again, a lovely, relaxing weekend of watercolour with like-minded souls. So much good food we couldn't even eat it all, and a comfy bed to curl up in. Doesn't get much better than that. We also met people from other countries who were working at the ranch or coming in to visit. I have been staying at the ranch... More

This property is not the advertised minuets from Jasper town but the advertised minuets from the park gate. Around an hours drive from Jasper. Misleading. It is in a beautiful secluded spot and wonderful for a quiet get away. Being an old building it is hollow and sound travels. The rooms are comfortable. The appearance on entry is old, tired... More

We were extremely disappointed in what we visualized and what was reality. After an hour and half drive from Jasper we arrived at the ranch which we felt was run down. The guest room was no better although the bed was clean and so was the bathroom. There was only the bed to sit on and one kitchen chair. There... More

The Black Cat was everything that it advertised.....I just failed to realize how dated and rustic the ranch is when booking. Upon our arrival ( hubby and myself) we found a note at the front desk addressed to us with keys. It was very unsettling to think we were the only people in this very large facility and no one...

We arrived Saturday 15 May and Amber was a welcome sight. Frindly, informative and will let you know whats what. Never been in the mountains before. Spring time is chilly near Hinton but the warmpth of the ranch and staff Make it a very nice place to stay.

The Black Cat Ranch Guest House/Lodge is a lovely and historic retreat nestled at the edge of the park, surrounded by the great wilderness and natural beauty of the mountains. We stayed for one night on our way back to Edmonton from skiing in Jasper - it was the perfect spot to relax and rest before finishing our trip home.... More

Glad we opted for Black Cat Ranch which proved to be quite far from Jasper. Not fancy but very clean. Homely atmosphere and friendly staff.Great food,tranquil rural setting.Plenty of outdoor activities- walks,horse riding or just plain chilling! Well worth a visit.

Awesome stay at the BCGR! We spent 4 nights nestled in a great guest ranch tucked 10 mins north of Hinton. The owners really try to make your stay comfortable. Every morning you get to wake up to a fantastic mountain view and the best part is you are tucked out of the way of the highway, roads and people!... More

The place was not clean, very poor condition, did not smell good! Had to stay the night as it was so late when we arrived & it is so far away from anywhere! You also have to drive across a river, which had not been mentioned at all! The owner was pleasant, but unfortunately everything else was unpleasant, including the... More
