We wanted to thank Cynthia and John for a very warm welcome to the ranch, they made us feel like old friends. The Kamloops house was beautifully decorated with a western motif and the resurrected John's bar in the down stairs was an added bonus. Had more than enough room for our family of five. There was plenty of supplies for our cooking and general needs. The Osborne keep a check on us to ensure there was nothing we needed and if there was they were quick to respond to any needs. The ranch is very beautiful with fantastic fishing and your closest neighbors are the abundant wildlife. We would definitely recommend to friends and family for a great get away.
We're a fly fishing couple who have traveled around the NW and Montana especially. We discovered the Vintage cabin and its hosts, John and Cynthia Osborn during a 3 day trip; we promptly booked 5 days for the next year and are in for a week in 2013. The setting is picture-perfect; the Vintage cabin couldn't be cozier...small but has everything we needed, and ever-so-tastefully done without being self-conscious. John and Cynthia offer tons of information about favorite fishing holes, how to get to little-known spots and are ever so gracious...shared some of their home-made pesto with us for our best dinner! They even allowed us to have our dogs with us....This is one of our favorite places to visit and stay...the natural setting is perfectly matched to the graciousness of the hosts.…
Upon arrival we were greeted by our warm and friendly hosts. When we arrived at our cabin we were wonderfully surprised by the attention to detail. You could see that comfort and amenities were at the top of our hosts list. Unparalleled views and wildlife sightings add to the wonderful ambiance of the cabin. It was a great experience and we hope to return soon! Richard and Christine Whitaker Los Gatos, Ca.
Bill and I loved our time at Big Trout Ranch. Gorgeous and super comfortable. We were treated like royalty. Highly recommend.
Stayed a week at Big Trout Ranch. The large house is perfect for families, well appointed, comfortable and clean. The location between Twin Bridges and Dillon is great for fishermen and sightseers. The fishing on the ranch itself was poor. The hosts had retired to bed when we arrived at 8:30 PM. We felt like we were an inconvenience. There is no high speed Internet or wireless so just be prepared. Overall, the positives clearly outweigh the negatives. Overall it was a pleasurable stay.
