Unique because of its personal nature, luxurious 160 acre working ranch, surrounded by more than 80,000 acres of uninhabited crown land, where wildlife thrives among natural grasslands, forest, lakes and rivers Although riding is the main activity, the many non-riding activities include excellent fishing. Ride as much or as little as you like, wherever on the map you choose to roam. The 6,000 square foot, log ranch house is set at the edge of a meadow on a knoll overlooking Siwash Lake. French doors open to a spacious deck, perfect for drinks and appetizers. The 6 guest rooms are all beautifully decorated in country house style.

"I had an "awesome" holiday"
Just to let you know that my son and I had an "awesome" holiday in Toronto Niagara and Kingston. Your input contributed greatly to the smooth running of our trip. Of particular benefit was the detailed itinerary, invaluable - especially the driving directions which were 100% accurate.

Arrive at Siwash and check in. After a good nights sleep and a hearty breakfast you will help to groom your horse for the day ahead. You and your horse will be spending much quality time together while you’re at the ranch and Siwash believe that the best way for you to become comfortable with your new friend is to take part in the daily care of the animal. You’ll be taught basic horse care and how to saddle your own horse each morning.
Right after breakfast you’ll groom, clean the feet and tack up your mount. And when you return to the barn at day’s end you can give your mare or gelding a well-deserved brush down and some home-made horse treats.
Spend your first day one-on-one with the ranch owners and hosts, learning the lay of the land and natural western horsemanship. Wilderness tips will be on the agenda, too.
After this orientation process and a few fabulous discovery rides, you can continue riding as little or as much as you like for the rest of your stay – on miles of trails that meander out from the ranch through 80,000 acres of pristine range land.
Pine laden paths lead through sun dappled aspen groves, old growth forests that stand in silent splendour and enchanting wild flower meadows. Explore waterfalls in a hidden river canyon, search through an old homestead or check on the ranch cattle.
