Big Bar Guest Ranch; Your Home On The Range
If you prefer a wood stove over a TV, horses instead of Wi-Fi and a slow pace instead of traffic then you’re just the right fit for a stay at Big Bar Guest Ranch. Nestled between the Marble Mountains and the Fraser River - about an hours drive from any amenities or city limits - it’s easy to feel reconnected to the remote nature and century old ranching history. Think coyotes yipping at sunset, campfires after days spent in the saddle and some of the best stars you’ll ever see.
Offering stays in rustic log cabins, some dating back to 1936, this historic ranch is the perfect retreat for simplicity and adventure. Should you opt to stay in the hotel units, you’ll be nestled closer to the hosts, wranglers and ranch dogs - all who instantly feel like family.
This summer you can look forward to fresh, organic foods grown on property to be used in their gourmet restaurant to feed all who stay or visit the ranch, a new bar and gift shop using handcrafted and locally sourced goods as well as traditional tipis available during the warmer months. Regardless of minor changes over the years, the charm of this ranch remains the same, and even after many stays on property we find ourselves always longing to go back.

“Anyone drinking this Fraser river water here, will always come back to it, sooner or later.” I have often thought of his words, and how true they were, because somehow or someway this big old Cariboo acts like a powerful magnet ever drawing the heart, mind and memories of those who have had the experience of living in these big wide open spaces. — Harry Marriot, Cariboo Cowboy
