Family ranch vacations - A successful trip for both generations

We sure have had a lot of guests this summer. From honeymooners, to families, to groups of eager girl-guides, we've had the pleasure of welcoming guests from around the world to experience the beauty of the South Chilcotin Mountains to enjoy their family ranch vacations with us.

One guest from Vancouver had this to say about her trip:

"When planning our family ranch vacations this year, I had several items on my wish-list. I wanted something:

• centered around the outdoors (without involving camping)

• offering a range of activities for different generations/activity levels

• reasonably close to Vancouver

• self-contained, including a kitchen

• large enough to accommodate the kids’ friends

Chilcotin Holidays offered all of this and much more. We arrived after an easy 4 hour drive and settled into the Ranch House. While not fancy, it was extremely comfortable and spacious. Not only could all 11 of us sleep, we could also sit in the living room or eat at the table at one time. It also had the best equipped kitchen I have ever rented.

After settling in, we set off to explore. Once again, our expectations were exceeded. The preparation for our ride was exceptionally thorough – a great comfort to one of our party who had had a frightening experience in the past. The scenery was beautiful and the staff could not have been more gracious.

Throughout our visit, everyone was able to find an activity which suited them. Some spent their time fishing while others chose to relax with a book. We did a strenuous hike and were rewarded with a breath-taking view. We did a pleasant and sedate ride one day and the more adventurous among us did a more challenging ride the next. We had planned to do more but never quite managed to fit everything in. By the time we left, we were already talking about our next visit. I wouldn’t have changed a thing and I’m sure we’ll be back.

My sincere thanks to everyone at Chilcotin Holidays for great family ranch vacations!"
