This is an 80 acre ranch just outside of Vernon BC in the Okanagan Valley. We have operated as a children's riding camp since 1991 until last year. We now focus on renting out our beautiful facility & cabins for weddings,reunions, get togethers & more. Last year we hosted 7 weddings. We still do horse boarding so there should always be horses on the property. There is always something going on here so you will have a lot of contact with other people. We are 850M high so the view from here is something to behold right from our front deck for sunrise or 15 minutes from the back door for sunset.
Help in the house
We are in our sixties & have a lot of knowledge to pass on about horses, fences, irrigation, building maintenance, equipment operation & maintenance just to name a few.
We have a lot of grounds to maintain around the camp which need mowing & weedwacking. About 50 acres of fields to harrow & mow at various times. many kilometres of post & rail fencing to maintain. While we don't have many horses left there is still some paddock cleaning. The cabins require weekly houskeeping as does the cookhouse. We have about 5k of trails to maintain & firewood to cut for the campfires. We do our best to vary the tasks as no one likes to do the same thing all day everyday. Experience on ridem mowers, string trimmers, chain saws & tractors would be an asset.
We have a 35' permanent trailer setup with a separate bedroom with a queen bed so are perfect for couples. Fully self contained & private. There is also a small bedroom in the back as well as 8 cabins & cookhouse so 2 friends or individuals will also be happy here. We will supply the food for breakfast & lunch with a family dinner at our house. This will be the best accomodation a backpacker will find.
Lots of hiking all around us. Lakes & beaches not to far away. Both myself & our daughter work in Vernon so there is someone going to town most days. We have internet at our house but not the camp.
