So strong is the pull of the amazing horses, warm and friendly hospitality, and breathtaking natural beauty that I return annually to Free Rein Guest Ranch. It all began for me on that first visit, where upon arriving as a solo traveler I was welcomed into the fold and never for a moment felt isolated, uncomfortable or ignored--just the opposite...

Where horses and guests are looked after like one big family. From the moment you arrive you feel like you are away from the world in another time and place - a real get away from it all experience. With a warm welcome and the feeling of a real home away from home you relax almost from the first minute...

My daughter & I spent 3 nights at Free Rein Guest Ranch at the beginning of May and it was the highlight of our holiday in Canada. Debbie and her parents made us feel instantly at home, our lakeside cabin was beautifully clean, warm and cosy and falling asleep in absolute silence apart from the sound of bullfrogs was magical!...

We stayed for four nights at the Free Rein Ranch in August 2014 and haven't stopped talking about it since! We visited some wonderful places during our tour in Canada (Banff, Jasper, Vancouver Island) but this was undoubtedly the highlight. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like one of the family. Debbie and her parents were...

In terms of the setting and facilities, this ranch is absolutely impeccable. The landscape is stunning, the rooms clean and comfortable, the home-cooked food amazing, and the herd of 22 very cared-for horses suited to any level of rider. There could not have been more love and attention to detail invested in this place. Where my experience strayed vastly from...

We are all clearly devastated to hear that you did not feel part of our Free Rein family during your time with us. It is extremely humbling to realise that even despite our best efforts to ensure that absolutely everyone feels included, ultimately you did not feel at home here with us.

“Cabins overlooking the lake are lovely, great for families with the kids having the bunk beds below. There is a little kitchenette but it's not needed as Kath's cooking will keep you feeling full for your whole stay.”
