Welcome Groupon Friends……
…. to Tod Mountain Ranch! just 4hrs NE of Vancouver, hidden in the Louis Creek Valley, surrounded by mountains, our ranch is small and exclusive offering a relaxing, tranquil, environment where guests enjoy horseback riding, nature and the outdoors.
We are delighted to be able to make this great offer through Groupon and look forward to welcoming you to the ranch.
Whilst the ranch dates back to the 1890′s, the lodge and guest cabins were newly constructed in 2009.
The cabins are nestled in small clearings amongst the trees and each one is furnished with custom-designed, hand constructed, log furniture made a local craftsman. Modern amenities and facilities combined with the rustic style furniture and decor provides guests with an experience that is luxuriously rustic.
The lodge is the hub of activity at the ranch where guests gather for meals, activities and socialising when they’re not out on the trail. There is something for everyone. A fireside lounge for relaxing; TV lounge with DVD library boasting over 100 of the best western and horse related movies ever and a recreation area with pool table, card, board and dice games.
Dining at Tod Mountain Ranch is a special experience. We serve wholesome, home-cooked meals with an emphasis on locally sourced, fresh seasonal produce. Combining the healthy with the hearthy, this is gourmet cooking with a ranch twist.
Horseback riding is the main activity here and because our ranch is small, we offer complete flexibility in the riding programme so that it is geared to the interest level of the guests, with rides varying from an hour to all day rides. Guests are welcome to spend time at the barn getting to know the horses they’ll be riding and helping out with the grooming and saddling. Experienced Wranglers guide you up the mountains surrounding the ranch on an extensive network of old logging roads and cattle trails through the forest to nearby lakes and streams and up into the alpine.
So, whether you’re travelling alone, or with friends, this small yet upscale ranch offers stunning views, great food, good company and a peaceful, calm environment to relax, unwind and forget about the stresses of the real world.
