KICK UP YOUR HEELS Nestled between the majestic Marble Mountains and the mighty Fraser River is Big Bar Guest Ranch - historic, timeless and never out-of-style. It’s a cowpoke palace, nestled amongst the pristine grasslands of British Columbia’s Cariboo. We promise you’ll rediscover yourself, learn new things about each other, and get back to the simple things that matter most and started it all. A rustic retreat without pretense, Big Bar guests are welcomed like family. Laid back and friendly professional service is delivered with the goal of having you leave feeling like Big Bar Ranch is your personal "Home on the Range.” Have your breakfast prepared just the way you like it, breathe in the smell of pine wafting on the air from the seat of your saddle overlooking the Fraser River, or take a bottle of wine back to your cabin to catch the sun set over the mountain.

My husband and I spent a wonderful week at the Big Bar in October 2019. We stayed in Cabin 3 and loved the quiet and the horses waking us up in the morning as they grazed around our cabin. The weather was great, it snowed but it melted within a couple of days. We opted to eat in the dining room and our food was plentiful and delicious. It was great to go back to our own little cabin to sit by the fire and relax each evening. The staff made our stay so special, we will definitely be back as soon as we can.

My daughter and son in law chose Big Bar Ranch for there wedding and the whole venue was full of family and friends Everyone at the ranch was friendly and inviting and went out of there way to make sure everyone was happy The rooms and cabins where comfortable with new beds and linens and towels And the food was fabulous This is a family style setting and it was great to get away from technology for a few days My grandkids loved the animals on the ranch and there was a great lawn and playground for them to play on The large fire pit was well used and enjoyed If you want to get away and unplug and unwind then I highly recommend Big Bar. Alyssa and Josh thank you so much for all of your hard work and warm welcome Debra and Doug Miltimore

We escaped the city with out kids for a 3-day weekend to try something that had never been done before in our family...a completely un-plugged getaway. That's right, no cell-phones, i-pads, laptops, games or t.v. for 3 whole days. And, there was no accessiblity, so there wasn't even a negotiation about it. With a 9year old, 11 year old and 12 year old this was all quite a feat. What resulted was simply the most connected, fun, active and memorable family get away we have had in ages. Between the horse back riding trails, swimming in the private lake, learning how to catch and pick up piglets (they squeal...loudly) and having complete independance in such a private rural location, the kids fell into a restful slumber each night. The meals were excellent. Wholesome, fresh, and cooked from scratch, we thoroughly enjoyed sittting down with the Big Bar team at dinner and feasting on the family-style platters. I miss the active, full days already and the dark silent nights. We will definately be back next year.
