With trails running through 30,000 hectares of mountain trails and forest, Tod Mountain Ranch swathes guests in comfortable, contemporary accommodations while granting a western frontier experience. Settle in with a two-night stay in one of the dude ranch's amber-lit guest cabins, each outfitted with log furnishings carved by a local Sasquatch, with a coffee maker, and with a small fridge.

Guided by an experienced wrangler, riders begin their day of horseback riding (approx. 4–5 hours) by choosing a stable saddleback companion from about 30 horses—a diverse crew of American Quarters, Paints, and Appaloosas and charismatic front man Billy, the Belgian draft/Appaloosa cross. A maximum of eight explorers embark along old logging roads and cattle trails, through open fields and forested areas home to bear, deer, moose, and the birds that love them. Steely steed rides are led by experienced trail guides and accompanying wranglers. Saddles, helmets, and riding boots are available to equip equestrians.

The resident chef uses locally sourced and organic produce in each of the included meals, starting with arrival dinner, mid-stay teatime, and concluding with pre-departure breakfast. Dinner is augmented with complimentary wines and beer. Free wireless internet invisibly inhabits the premises, like a ghost who knows everything.

Reviews

Tod Mountain Ranch was featured in International Lifestyle Magazine, mentioned in "Road to the Rockies" in Best of Liverpool, and featured by Equitrekking. Four TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 stars, and Tod Mountain Ranch has a testimonials page filled with glowing reviews.

  • The main lodge, private cabins and setting are top drawer. The meals are delicious and are expertly prepared. I especially loved the horses and exploring the mountain trails. One day we took a ride up the mountain for a spectacular view down the valley. If you are looking for a relaxing holiday with lots of pampering this is a great choice. – keepriding555, TripAdvisor

Tod Mountain Ranch

Tod Mountain Ranch owner and Ireland native Tracey O'Connell has spent her life traveling the world. But in 2007, she bought an 80-acre former cattle ranch after falling in love with the Canadian wilderness near Louis Creek Valley. Today, this property is the Tod Mountain Ranch, which plays host to both humans and horses—its herd of 20 equines roam the ranch and lead a natural lifestyle, never stalled or stabled. Guests of the human variety spend their time riding, hiking, and relaxing at the main lodge, which was built in 2009 along with the guest cabins. Inside each cabin is handmade log furniture, crafted by a local artisan.

When guests aren't exploring the alpine wilderness, they congregate on the main lodge's wrap-around porch over coffee or a cold beer. You won't go hungry at the Tod Mountain Ranch, whose resident chef prepares breakfast, lunch, and a three-course dinner daily. After dinner, head out to the campfire to sing folk songs and gossip about your favorite horses.

Customer Reviews

It was so quiet and peaceful. Also Tracey the owner and the staff were very friendly and fun to be with. The food was amazing and all homemade . This is a wonderful peaceful relaxing place to have a getaway. The cabins are very cute and cozy and the lodge is also a very inviting place to be with all its books and games I hadn't really ridden a horse much in the last few years and they made sure I had a very quiet horse. Also my husband who was not a horse person at all , had a horse which was extremely bomb proof and he really enjoyed it. My 15 year old daughter and her friend didn't want to leave. We highly recommend Tod Mountain Ranch for a getaway and we know you wont be disappointed
