Visitor Stories & More

We love to hear from our guests and have a large number of repeat guests. We have chosen some of our favorite visitors’ stories, but feel free to checkout Facebook or Google + to read more reviews about Kara Creek Ranch. 

I don't know where to start, what started as a trip of a lifetime turned into another and hopefully, next year, another to this lovely place. Kara Creek and the people and animals who work and live there have a magic all of their own. It's like entering another world, but one where you feel you have known the people there a long time. You are made to feel like you belong right from the start and certainly feel you leave as friends. I would recommend Kara Creek to anyone who dreams of experiencing the cowboy/girl life, if only for a short time. You can do as much or as little as you want, but don't expect tuition. This is the real deal. You muck in and learn as you go along, which makes it sometimes hard work, exciting and an amazing experience when you get something right. A bit of good humour and patience from the cowboys allows for that. The whole place has a family feel and it's a chance to meet others with a similar interest from other countries. Some like it so much they come back for longer stays and keep a saddle there. I certainly keep part of my heart always there and can't wait to go back.

My four visits here in the past two years have each been amazing in their own way. Wonderful people who welcome you to the Kara Creek family with open arms, great home cooked food, lovely horses to ride and the most amazing views everywhere you turn. I couldn't recommend it highly enough to anyone looking for a TRUE cowboy experience and not some touristy dude ranch

We had an absolute blast at Kara Creek Ranch and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Everyone was great - both staff and guests. It's the perfect place to really see what ranch life is like. We loved it and will be back for longer next time so be warned! Thank you all for the big laughs, friendly banter, beer and memories. See you again!! Helen, Linda and Carol x

We always dreamed about this trip, but it was better than in our dreams. People, horses, vistas, everything was perfect. Thanks everybody for working each day in order to make guests happy, thanks to Gigio for advises and organisation, thanks to Lary and Shana for the cooking and logistics, thanks to Kyle and Austin for taking us with them in order to move cows, thanks to Karina for her smile and happyness, thanks to Monte for the "calf mission", thanks to Hawkeye for the music and jokes, and especialy thanks to Wilbur for his kindness and his disponibility. If someone is looking for a great place to be, he must go to the Kara Creek Ranch. Adeline and Marion
