Hotel Overview

Sense of place

In the heart of British Columbia, around five and a half hours’ drive from Vancouver.

Rooms at Siwash Lake Ranch

There are a variety of different rooms at the Ranch, including five Ranch House Suites inside the main lodge and a handful of spacious Canvas Cabins on the ridge. We particularly love the ultra-luxurious Cariboo Suite, nestled in the top of the Ranch’s hand-hewn log barn. From here, you can watch the horses return for the morning rides after their nightly roam - it is truly a magnificent sight.

Food & drink

Pre-breakfast comes in the form of cinnamon buns and coffee, delivered straight to your door in the morning. Breakfast is then served in the main lodge, with gourmet lunches packed into saddle bags for afternoon adventures. If you still have room for dinner, the set menus typically feature a mixture of Canadian and international cuisine, put together with succulent home-reared beef and pork.


Cool off in the fresh, clear water of Siwash Lake - spanning half a mile, the lake provides plenty of natural space for an aquatic workout. Enhance mental, physical and spiritual wellness in the luxury tented spa, where a range of holistic treatments are sure to soothe any saddle sores. Curl up with a good book in the library or out on the sundeck in a hammock.

Activities at Siwash Lake Ranch

Horse Riding is at the heart of the Siwash Lake Ranch experience, and they will cater for everybody, whether beginner or expert. Guests are provided with their own personal horse, and then lead through some of British Colombia’s most breathtaking scenery. Even if riding isn’t for you, mountain bike, hike, fish, swim in the lake or spend your time at the luxurious spa tent hidden away in a forest clearing.
