“beautiful location... the rest is awful.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

this was a poor excuse for what they call a "resort" I would strike that part off their profile in a split second...and would include something in their profile that would indicate just how basic this place is. No TV, no Phone... fine... nothing else, either. No water pressure, no hot water, no drinkable water, no outside food or drinks allowed, no pets, no noise... no a/c.. no clean sheets... no mould-free furniture... wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

“White water rafting at it's best.......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

My friend and I wanted to try white water rafting, having never done it before, but wanting to experience it none the less.....what a blast! The staff were very accomodating and the experience was memorable.......even purchased a DVD of pictures of our "Team " in the water; action shots, if you will..........great fun for the whole family!!

“OK”

Have stayed here on business a couple of times. Activities include horseback riding and rafting. Accomodations Ok, with the cabins better than the rooms. Food was good.

“Rustic realism; no experience necessary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

Includes every comfort for the urban cowboy experience. Real log cabins and a main lodge that boasts a huge open fire pit, (a little smokey when it first gets going) , a fine restaurant and separate bar area, as well as, an accessories store that provides for any last minute needed items, (such as warm riding gloves and jackets.) Articles which will be needed for the Trail Rides that are filled with beautiful scenery and reasonable horses. The staff are very authentic and friendly, making one feel like family, and not at all out in the bush even though the resort is, in fact, out in the middle of the mountains.

“Relax with the family on a cowboy ranch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2011

Want to spend a few days with the family on an old style cowboy ranch in Alberta Canada? Try the Rafter Six Ranch in Exshaw between Calgary and Banff. A family owned ranch, the staff are friendly and helpful, the atmosphere relaxing and the food home style. Go for a quite horse ride through the valley or climb the tree-top rope course. In summer enjoy white water rafting, in the winter enjoy a sleigh ride and other activities. We stayed in a log cabin which was warm and comfortable. Spend time with the ranch pets who just love hanging around the guests.
VIsit for the day or spend a couple of days.
