On our way to Prince Rupert we stayed two nights at the Triple Creek Ranch. Although we arrived late, the owners welcomed us with open arms and prepared us a home cooked meal which we enjoyed together. The ranch is beautifully located on a mountain hill, with lots of animals, whether kept horses or wild black bears, walking around. Ron offered us an ATV tour on the trails around his house, which we really loved, since the landscape is amazing and Ron is an enthousiastic guide. Breakfast was great on both days. In short: warm and welcoming B&B on beautifull property!
