I spent a week at the ranch attending a hummingbird photography workshop lead by John and Barb Gerlach. Lots of hummingbirds to photograph, there were big horn sheep in the area, and a roaming bear in the fields. The food prepared by CJ was tasty, and plentiful. Greg and Gina, are wonderful hosts and make sure your every need is... More

I stayed with the amazing folks at the Bull River Guest Ranch for 10 days in June, while working in the area. The more I explored the property and adjoining crown land on my mountain bike, the more majestic the property became...a lake to swim at, fields to traverse, wildlife everywhere! My hosts Greg, Gina, Gale, Jack, Vanessa and Anna... More

I just returned home after spending a week at the ranch attending a hummingbird photography workshop lead by John and Barb Gerlach. Besides the hundreds of hummingbirds to photograph, there were deer, elk and Canada geese in the meadow and you might see a bear. The food prepared by CJ was wonderful. Greg and Gina, the owners, are wonderful hosts... More

The Bull River Guest Ranch was written up in "Log Cabin Living" magazine about a year ago. I knew we would be going to B.C. this year, so I kept the magazine, and couldn't wait to visit. It was even better than we had expected. We reserved the "Grizzly" cabin. The cabin is absolutely adorable, and very comfortable. It has... More

We stayed at the Bull River Guest Ranch for a wedding and were very satisfied with the service. The cabin was quaint, but very clean, and the beds were comfortable. The owners, Greg and Gina, went out of there way to make sure everything was satisfactory. Would not hesitate to recommend it.

My wife recently completed a one week workshop on photographing hummingbirds in May at the Bull River Guest Ranch. This is pretty much an annual event run by the John and Barb Gerlach, a professional photographer couple specializing in nature and wildlife photography. Since I don't photograph, while there I booked some fly fishing at local lakes (the rivers and... More

We had our wedding there in September and it couldn't have turned out better. The staff was extremely friendly and bent over backwards to make sure everything was perfect for me and my wife. It could not have been better. I have never wrote on any advisory board before so you have to understand how wonderful it was by me... More

I visited Bull River Guest Ranch in July as a stop off on an extended roadtrip. Myself and my parents stayed three nights in one of the cabins. It was a great stay, and we particularly enjoyed spending time around the petting zoo and watching the hummingbirds buzz to and fro while sitting on the porch. This is definitely not... More

We were at the ranch for a couple days to be in attendance for our friends wedding. This is a magical place. 360 degrees of scenic mountians in the background, beautiful area. Great for families, plenty of activity for children, suchas a pettign zoo, pony rides, one of those air blown jumpy castles, chopper rides, a smal playground and of... More
