"A great place for R and R ( and a great steak)"
Arriving at Nakiska Ranch is a bit of a test....... it is a working Ranch and initial impressions confirm this! We began to wonder why we had booked three nights here....but on meeting our host Lars our initial reticence disappeared. He is a larger than life character having bought the Ranch some 7 years ago with his wife Aida and have turned it into a fantastic place to stay. The accommodation is in cabins which are generous comfortable clean and warm. Ours had a balcony small kitchen area, shower room and large seating/relaxing area. The internet is Satellite based and as such is intermittent and there is no TV in the room ....not a problem for us. The farm area has seating and walking areas with lovely views of fields and mountains. They have number of dogs and a wolf pup(!). Method in the apparent madness is that the pet wolf marks the territory and keeps the wolves away and the other dogs deter the bears! We saw neither during our stay so it must work. The best bit about Nakiska is the food...beautifully cooked me plenty of it. They serve breakfast, plentiful and varietal, and a sumptuous three course dinner at night all of which are different every night. Try to be there for steak....simply delicious and massive! The Okanagan wines which is served is also memorably delicious. If you re in the area please consider this Ranch....you will not be disappointed but book early to avoid disappointment.
Nakiska Ranch is a wonderful cozy place, not least because of the host Lars, who meets us on the terrace with a warmly sounding Danish "welcome". We actually came later than last chekinn time but that was no problem. We were asked if we wanted dinner, the menu was salmon. It is a relatively small place so we were 18 for dinner, starting with the host telling a little about the food and if there are special conditions in and around the national park the following day. There is a good atmosphere at the dinner and it is easy to talk to the other guests. I'll be back if I get the opportunity.
"Friendly working ranch"
We wondered why the agent had booked us in so far from Jasper and were a little concerned about the location and the actual accommodation when we pulled up. However, this was by far the best place we stayed in the whole of our 3 week trip to Canada. Lars - the owner - made breakfast and dinner every day. He made us very welcome and the food was absolutely amazing. All guests who stay have the option to eat there, or not. We chose to eat in. And we are so happy we did. The cabin itself was comfortable with a very comfy bed, giving us a good night's sleep each night. There are four dogs at the property - all very friendly. The were brilliant and never bothered anyone at all. One - Loca - is a wolf and by far the most cuddly creature imaginable. Loved our stay, and would definitely stay again.
"Very disappointing "
We booked this through a tour company and this was easily the most disappointing accommodation we experienced the whole trip. The place is run down, the reception we got was very ordinary, sorry but do not have a nice word to say about this. It may have been 4 star one day but that would be a long time ago. This is the view from the room.
"Great, but not with small kids"
Great surroundings, rustic cabins. But not so fun if your kids are in another cabin and you need to get out at night (older kids are fine in this situation). Wifi not working. Friendliness OK, but nithing more.
