We came to stay at Big Bar almost by accident. I am an experienced rider and my husband a novice, Big Bar were able to cater for this perfectly and my aprehensive husband was completely converted to exploring the unimaginable vistas on horseback. We thought the journey to the ranch may be a little long but it was easy to... More

This rustic Guest Ranch is located about 45 minutes outside of Clinton, B.C. You know you are heading for a Western experience as you travel on the well-maintained gravel road. If you keep alert you might just sight deer, Elk, moose or even a bear! The Guest Ranch is owned by a wonderful young couple who are working hard to... More

Our experience at Big Bar was terrific. Riding is a great experience; we took a number of different trails so we had a new experience on each trail. The wild life is amazing; we saw a bear, a number of beaver and a large variety of birds, including cranes, bald eagles and brilliantly colourful blue jays. The cabin was spacious,... More

Big Bar Guest Ranch was the perfect getaway for my family. The cabins were so clean and it felt like we had our own privacy from the ranch. It's was great to entertain the kids with paddle boats in the little lake. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating. If you're looking for a rustic getaway this is the place to... More

Can not recommend this ranch enough! There is something for everyone from archery, mountain biking, hiking, pedal boating, canoeing, and of course horse back riding!

This was our third trip up to Big Bar, and we loved it even more then the first two trips. We have stayed in Cabin #2, Cabin #3, and the Cowboy Inn. We have small children (ages 4 & 6) and we found the Coyboy Inn a great option for evenings- put the kids to bed, then head down to... More

These people are not experienced at all, no costumer service, old run down place, dirty, very bad food. This place is not a very pleasant ranch to stay everything is old and dirty. I would not advice it to anyone.

Big Bar Guest Ranch is a real gem! If you love horseback riding, or even if you’ve never done it before, the staff will match you with a good horse, show you how it’s done, and lead you through the absolutely gorgeous, scenic surrounding countryside. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel/spa, this is not the place for you,... More

We had the perfect weekend. Horses are always at the top of my list and we had 4 long rides on happy, well cared for horses. The owners and staff are great people who make you feel like family and the September sunshine was hard to beat. I can't wait for my next trip.
