The scenery is really lovely for riding up at Big Bar - open fields with rolling hills in the backdrop. The horses were in great shape and were suitable for both experienced and inexperienced riders. Big Bar offers both full and half day rides. The food was perfect for buffet style and the drinks were inexpensive. There are lots of... More

Both the staff, stock and guests were welcoming at Big Bar Guest Ranch! I was traveling around B.C. on my own and thought this would be a great way to see The Cariboo. It really was. Just a few hours from Kelowna, I decided to rent a car and enjoy the scenic drive. I only stayed a few days but... More

My daughter and I stayed for four nights in early July. The ranch is a relaxing day drive from the lower mainland. We spent spent one night in a teepee and the rest in a cabin. The location is a little slice of heaven. Views are lovely, grassland and lakes. We did day rides with professional wranglers on well looked... More

We had a great experience at Big Bar Guest Ranch (BBGR). They were super accommodating as our trip was delayed a day because our 4 year old daughter had been sick. They had no problem moving our reservations. The food was excellent and BBGR were able to accommodate my wife's gluten free diet too! The cabin was exactly what we... More

This is a real Cariboo ranch. Don't come expecting fancy and having your hand held. There are bugs, rustic cabins and it IS WONDERFUL. Our family had the best vacation. Our hosts were very easy going, friendly, great to our daughter, as they are parents as well. Our wranglers were so experienced and respectful with the horses. My husband went... More

Beautiful Country --- Big Bar Ranch is located in one of the most stunning areas of Canada-- I stayed here during the summer of 2015 and I'm still dreaming of the mountain plateaus, long evening sunsets, early morning canoe paddles and hikes through the mountains. What makes Big Bar special is it is not a luxury resort selling a 'tourism... More

We arrived so excited for this trip and were sorely disappointed. The window sills were full of dead flies and the counter and cabinets had mouse droppings everywhere. There was no wood for the wood stove and we paid for a 6 1/2 hr ride and got a 4 1/2 ride and then the wrangler said he forgot about the... More

Oh Ruth, how saddened I am to find this here and after we did have a very pleasant conversation on the phone. Yes, it may have taken us some time to connect but as it is winter time many of our chores keep us out doors tending to the animals and the office is only open limited hours. We were... More

I visited this ranch 3 years ago and this time my brother wanted to come along as I had such a great time. We found everything about the ranch just as it was advertised. My brother hasn't been on a horse in over 40 years and they matched his riding ability perfectly with the right horse. There were 6 guests... More

Our typical bookings are made well in advance. We are a very rural location, 2.5 hours from where we do our bulk shopping.... When you all pulled in, you were totally unexpected and about an hour before dinner was to be served. I believe there was at least a dozen in your group. You looked weathered and tired, asking about... More
