Big, airy beautiful private rental in timber frame barn with views. The perfect holiday for nature lovers, this unique 'glamping' experience is situated on a working buffalo ranch in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
There are five rentals on the ranch you can also find on airbnb: Buffalo Ranch and Guest House, Buffalo Ranch -Buffalo Cabin, Buffalo Ranch - Sauna Cabin by the Creek, Buffalo Ranch - Wagon in the Woods, and Buffalo Ranch - Buffalero's Bunkhouse.

The space
By staying in the barn you are helping me save a breeding herd of buffalo. Thank you! The barn is a huge, beautiful space. Simplistic and a wonderful atmosphere, with babbling creek nearby, sporadic wooded areas and picnic table. Wake up to the sights, sounds and smells of Canadian mountains, with the living/sleeping space of the barn screened-in for protection against bugs, and the kitchen area semi-outdoors. No electricity, fairy & led lights, semi-outdoor kitchen set-up, its the perfect 'glamping' experience for the adventure-hearted. Your washroom is a solar shower and a private clean outhouse about 50 feet/15meters from the entrance. There is a new, cosy double bed and also pull-out futon that can sleep two more people.

There is a brand new Coleman cooler with ice-packs in it for you to store food in, you can exchange ice-packs with us when needed. There is a solar shower at the barn that you can ask staff to refill if necessary. We kindly ask that you store food and other odoured items either in your vehicle or in the wooden chest in the barn's kitchen area (next to the couch).

Please be aware when booking, this rental is a barn. A barn that is still used to house straw bales. It is not a converted barn, it is not an insulated lodge or a cabin, it is a rustic, off-grid "glamping" experience, amongst nature. There is wildlife about. You need to use an outhouse and a solar shower. It is a beautifully unique twist on camping, offering everything a campsite can without the inconvenience of a tent. There is no hot running water, wifi or electricity accessible inside of the barn. The barn is protected with mosquito nets and coils but we can not control the weather or the bugs when you are outside. You can expect a clean, dry and comfortable space, but please be aware that it is a rustic beautiful space and not a luxury hotel room. The photographs attached to this listing portray the barn as honestly as possible.

Location

Golden, British Columbia, Canada

Our address is 1739 Oberg-Johnson Road, Golden, British Columbia, V0A 1H1. About 10 km west (going toward Revelstoke) of Golden on Highway 1, turn right on Moberly Branch Road. Follow Moberly Branch Road until you arrive at the T-junction and then turn left, go down the hill and bear right onto Oberg-Johnson Road*. Then go about 1 km east and turn left through the big gate with big buffalo sign, and drive about 200 meters down the driveway. You’ll find a rope across the driveway, the barn and its parking area is to the left of this rope, you don't need to pass through it. Please always close any gate behind you to keep the ranch as secure as possible! If you look to your left after entering through the rope gate, you will find the barn parking space clearly signed. type in Rocky Mountain Buffalo Ranch and you'll find us on google maps.

I can be found in the two story cabin on the opposite end of the meadow. Come find me if you need any help with anything! Check in time is any time after 3pm. If you can let me know about what time you expect to arrive, I can say hi and show you around. All you need to bring is food. Buffalo tours begin at 10am, every guest is invited to get involved with a tour and be formally inducted to both the buffalo and the land.


*There are buffalo signs on some of the telephone poles to help you find us.

PS - If you have an idea about what time we can expect you to arrive, please do let me know, but don't worry if you don't know, you can just make yourself at home any time after 3pm, the barn will be open and ready for you!
