Montana Hill Guest Ranch began over 25 years ago in 2016. Purchased and renovated by your hosts and owners, Al and Elaine, where you will be welcomed like one of the family.
Why did Al and Elaine fall in love with this area? You will see it once you arrive. The Montana Hill Guest Ranch is a working cattle ranch that sits in the heart of cowboy country in the South Cariboo region of British Columbia. The Ranch is on expansive acreage, of over 500 acres, and is nestled in gentle hills loaded with pine trees. It also is surrounded by public lands with crystal clear lakes and beautiful scenic trails. The fresh air, panoramic views, and quiet surroundings create an environment that will re-charge your batteries and relieve the stress of your busy life. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable vacation and experience.
Elaine and Al have passionately thought about designing Montana Hill Guest Ranch to be affordable and cost-effective and yet still offering all the comforts and luxuries you would expect from much pricier guest ranches.
In the main ranch house, you can enjoy a game of billiards, read a book in front of the river rock fireplace decorated with trophy caribou, moose, cougar, and antlers. You can even take one of the many movies back to your cabin to enjoy.
A full gourmet breakfast is included each morning. You can cook your other meals in the privacy of your own cabin or visit one of the local restaurants in the area. Or savour the flavours of a western grill night, where you’ll enjoy freshly baked bread, salad, baked potato and a homemade dessert. Your choice of chicken, pork ribs or BBQ cowboy cut (that means they are really thick and juicy) steaks. From farm to table. That means fresh (and organic) produce, grown in their own greenhouse or sourced from local farms in the area.
There’s also a boutique and souvenir shop with lots of specialty items that will add to the memory of your stay.
Montana Hill Guest Ranch is open year-round so you can explore, experience, and live the ranch life in any season. You may even get a chance to be here when calving is in full swing. Elaine says, “it’s an amazing experience”.
Did someone say “lunch?” Montana Hill staff will make you a picnic basket (for an extra fee) if you want to go exploring.
Montana Hill Guest Ranch is a five-hour drive from Vancouver, B.C., and just an hour and a half north of Kamloops
