This private, brand new hand built log dovetail cabin is what mountain getaway dreams are made of. This luxuriously rustic cabin has a full kitchen, and is designed for 5 people. The cabin is on a 160 acre working ranch. Located in the middle of several mountain ranges and national parks, this is your base for unlimited mountain adventure. 20min. west of Golden, BC. Wi-Fi is Not Available due to our remote environment.

The space
At the Whisper Ranch Bison cabin, you can curl up under a blanket by the wood stove after an adventurous day out in the mountains. This cabin is across the road from our working ranch. Yes, in the distance we have roosters that crow, cows that moo and livestock guardian dogs that bark. We don't hear them, but probably because they are the soothing sounds of the ranch to us. Some nights are louder than others. If you are a light sleeper you may hear farm noises at night. There are no city noises here, so you may also hear the sounds of other local wildlife. It's the real deal here. There is also no light pollution so on a clear night you can even see the Milky Way! There is a master bedroom located on the main floor with a queen bed. The upstairs loft includes one queen bed and one twin bed. Comfy mattresses by Endy. The loft is accessible by ladder and is a great place for kids to have their own space or additional adults. A portable crib is available on request. USB chargers are located near all beds and other locations in the cabin. The main floor has a well-equipped kitchen including a full-size oven and fridge. A French Press and coffee and tea with real cream are included. There is no dishwasher or microwave. As we are encouraging people to come and get-away from the usual distractions of life, we have specifically opted not to include Wi-Fi. In case of an emergency. In lieu of Wi-Fi, we have included board and card games. A Bose Bluetooth speaker system is in the cabin. From construction to operation this cabin has been sustainably and eco-friendly built. Toilets consume an astonishing amount of water, so to preserve our environment we have chosen to use composting toilet technology. The compost ends up back out on our pastures. A ceiling fan is installed in the cabin but there is no air conditioning. This cabin is your base for backcountry skiing, downhill skiing, dog sledding, mountain biking, hiking, snowmobiling, climbing, whitewater rafting, paragliding, fishing, horseback riding and many more adventures!
* Our intent is to provide ski trails and hiking trails on the ranch in the future. Currently, we are not set up to do so. At this time until we have better ranch fencing, we cannot accept pets as interactions with our ranch animals from visiting pets is not a good scenario for anyone. Thanks for understanding *

BEARS:
We live in a bear country.
Both black and grizzly bears come through the property. Grizzly's sometimes pass here in mid-May to eat the dandelions. There has never been a problem with bears in our property. For safety, do not leave food or garbage outside that attracts bears.
Make noise and walk outside in group of 2 or more.
If you find yourself close to a grizzly or black bear slowly back away. Having a bear spray also comes in handy.
Bears are wild and beautiful part of life here in our valley. It is extremely rare that anyone in the valley is threatened or harmed by a bear.

ASSUMPTION OF RISKS
I accept all the dangers and risks inherent in outdoor activities including but not limited to the hazards presented by changeable weather, wild animals, and the possibility of becoming lost in the forest.
