Just Spent a horrible weekend at this place for a wedding. Upon arrival - Waiver signatures for everything in the place. And I understand why. The stairs/railings going to the second floor of the Cowboy's Inn are suffering from dry rot. Lean hard against them and you could be in for a tumble. In the bathroom - a sign from... More

We only spent one night at Big Bar, but everyone treated us like family. We enjoyed our meals in the dinning hall and played pool in the rec hall after. The next day we were scheduled to go out horse back riding. It was raining so we were supplied with Oil skin coats to keep us dry and warm at... More

My husband and I have just returned from Canada where we spent two nights at Big Bar. After a really long drive it was a relief to be able to arrive at our lodge and well and truly wind down and relax on our lodge veranda and enjoy the view across the ranch and towards the private lake. Every staff... More

We were on a motorhome trip through the Cariboo and asked if we could park for a night or two and take in a ride. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and made us (and our 2 dogs) feel more than welcome. We got to park our RV in the horse pasture and enjoyed evenings and mornings with the... More
