" Ride the Wind Ranch is the perfect get-away, nothing to worry about, delicious home cooked meals and the picture perfect vista to wake up to each morning.
You made us feel so welcome and my favourite part were the campfires at night.

We invite you to watch our 2 minute "Welcome to the ranch" movie

Perfectly located within 2 hours drive to either Calgary, Edmonton, Banff - and Jasper National Park, Ride the Wind Ranch offers a spectacular view from the gorgeous cabins overlooking vast Canadian forests to the Rocky Mountains in the distance.

Situated in the Western Canada's foothills, surrounded by magnificent forests, lakes and rivers, bordering Crimson Lake Provincial Park and endless square miles of public land with direct access to world famous David Thompson Highway, a very scenic route into the Rocky Mountains.

Marty and Kathy (originally from Switzerland) and their sons Joe and Ben live their dream of nature, space, wildlife, animals and cowboy culture and share their western hospitality with guests from all over the world for 19 years now.

Feel at Home Away From Home in the cozy cabin with private bathroom and log beds, relax and unwind on the porch with a beautiful view to the Rockies, enjoy the tasty home cooked meals with good company and appreciate what the surrounding has to offer.

Guests love to explore nearby Crimson and Twin Lakes for hiking, fishing, swimming (sand beach), shop at a Western Store, visit the Historic Site, drive into the Rockies to beautiful Abraham Lake and Crescent Falls, drive a short distance to go on a horseback ride.

Back at your B&B at Ride the Wind Ranch enjoy the peaceful ranch setting, visit the ranch animals, pet the horses and take pictures of the ever so cute Texas Longhorn calves. Reenergize during these very restful days in a comfortably pleasant small group setting (up to 8 guests only).
