“Arrived at the ranch on Friday Sept 30 and stayed until Oct 2. My husband and I were there for a wedding. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the owners are very kind people. The food is amazing and so much of it!!! Thank you so much to everyone at Big bar Guest ranch, you made the wedding a great success!!
FYI if you are getting married there have them make the cake....it was amazing.”
“Beautiful landscapes and the kindest staff. Everybody sits at the dining table like one big family. Exquisite cabins and the horse back riding is something to behold. Quiet and picturesque. I would definitely recommend staying and coming back often”
“We stayed in Big Bar Guest Ranch for May long weekend. It is a perfect place to unplug from big city buzz - no cell phone reception, no crowds, no noise. Just amazing views of mountains, lakes and meadows. Knowledgeable and friendly guides who make your horse back riding trips fun and enjoyable. We stayed in one of the cabin (#3), which we highly recommend. After long day of riding or hiking, it is nice to sit by a fire place with a book and glass wine and watch a sunset from your porch. Our dog also enjoyed it a lot - so much space to roam freely. All in all if you want a real ranch experience in a beautiful countryside, than this place is for you”
“We escaped the city with out kids for a 3-day weekend to try something that had never been done before in our family...a completely un-plugged getaway. That's right, no cell-phones, i-pads, laptops, games or t.v. for 3 whole days. And, there was no accessiblity, so there wasn't even a negotiation about it. With a 9year old, 11 year old and 12 year old this was all quite a feat.
What resulted was simply the most connected, fun, active and memorable family get away we have had in ages. Between the horse back riding trails, swimming in the private lake, learning how to catch and pick up piglets (they squeal...loudly) and having complete independence in such a private rural location, the kids fell into a restful slumber each night.
The meals were excellent. Wholesome, fresh, and cooked from scratch, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting down with the Big Bar team at dinner and feasting on the family-style platters.
I miss the active, full days already and the dark silent nights. We will definitely be back next year.”
