GR#14 Rocky Mountain House Guest Ranch
Overview:
Welcome to a beautiful horse and cattle ranch, located only 2 hours from Banff and Jasper National Park and easily accessible from Calgary or Edmonton International Airport. The ranch is located in a very scenic region, just West of Rocky Mountain House and owned by a Swiss couple since 1993. Together they fulfilled their dream of living in a peaceful surrounding and sharing their western hospitality with guests from all over the world. Regional attractions include neighbouring Crimson Lake Provincial Park (swimming), Twin Lakes (fishing) and Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site. The scenic David Thompson Highway (#11) is a popular route to the Rockies. Up to 9 guests stay in cozy guest cabins with private bathrooms. Enjoy the gorgeous views of the Rocky Mountains. You are treated to delicious home cooked meals featuring ranch raised Texas Longhorn beef. Ranch Vacation Packages include instruction in horseman-ship and horseback rides for any level of rider and great canoe trips.

Activities:
An excellent group of horses love to work for different riders. Experienced riders as well as beginners love the solid, dependable and calm ranch horses. Most of the horses have been raised on the ranch or bought as young horses and Hans and Kathy trained them with patience and love. The rides are guided and are lead through forested public land. Some trails in the bush are narrow game trails, watch out for branches and enjoy the untouched forest sight. Some trails are wider and suitable for a trot or for confident riders there are possibilities to let your horse lope (canter). The ranch's small herd of quiet, registered Texas Longhorn cattle is of historic value to every "Wild West" enthusiast. Guests love to participate every couple of weeks in moving the cattle to another pasture. Most trailrides are set up for experienced riders or riders with some trailriding experience, but feel comfortable around horses and have a love for adventure. On narrow trails through beautiful Canadian forest the group rides the horses in single file; over meadows riders can ride side by side. During a ride, it is usual to put your horse into a trot a couple of times, so every rider needs to be comfortable enough to participate.

Accommodation:
Two new, bright and cozy cabins offer accommodation for up to ten guests in four rooms; All rooms have the same layout and offer the same amenities such as: hardwood floor, pine furniture, log beds and heating system. The cabins are located next to the ranch house on a ridge with agorgeous view over the west country to the Rocky Mountains in a distance. Sit back on the porch and enjoy the peaceful and quiet surroundings. Each cabin offers two separate sides; each side offers: One queen size bed, one twin size bed, table and chairs, small fridge, tea/coffee maker and an ensuite bathroom with tub.
