THE RANCH

Willow Ranch is ideally located near the charming little town of Valemount – the valley of mountains – in beautiful British Columbia.  

 

We provide our guests with a variety of hospitality and recreational opportunities above and beyond our breathtaking trail rides into the mountains on horseback.   Our studio-barn includes a boutique gift store, gourmet coffeeshop, library, fitness center, indoor and outdoor seating/rest-areas and firepits.  

 

Ranch games such as pitching horseshoes, learning how to throw a lariat, and archery, are complimentary for our guests.  We also find that some of our guests enjoy the ambiance of “hanging out” in the tack shed among all the saddles, bridles, and our eclectic collection of cowboy boots and western gear.

Within just a short walking distance of the studio-barn we are proud to provide our guests with state-of-the art cabins located in a quiet, private setting, offering stunning views of the highland peaks in every direction.

 

Our horses live as “naturally” as possible as a herd together on our multiple pastures and paddocks.   We even have a “paddock paradise”, a system of fenced alleyways, like a maze, that helps keep our horses active and engaged when they are not working. 

 

For our horse training we have a round-pen and a full-size outdoor arena.  During the winter of 2020/2021 we are building a one-of-a-kind covered round-pen out of logs with timber we have harvested from our own forest.  

 

We love having visitors come to the ranch!  So, even if you’re not coming for a ride, please know that we welcome you to visit Willow Ranch. Throughout the season we are open daily, so feel free to drop in for a cup coffee or tea, browse around in our giftshop, play a few ranch games, or just BE and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the horses.

Coffee shop and Gift Store

Is there a better combination than good coffee and horses? We don't think so.... So we are very happy to have an Italian espresso machine and great organic Italian espresso so that we are able to serve you the best coffee's in our small coffeeshop. 

We do our best to find a collection of unique and fun gifts and souvenirs for our small gift store on the ranch. 

We're open daily throughout the season and are always happy to help you, so definitely pay us a visit! 

 

Our Cabins

Our cabins are located about 100 meters up from the ranch. Private, quiet and surrounded by nature and mountain views. Each cabin has a living room with a small kitchen, the living room has a queen size pull out couch, a bedroom with king size bed and a bathroom. On the deck in front of your cabins there's a BBQ for each cabin and there are different private fire pits around the cabins.
