Triple Creek Ranch B&B
Enjoy astounding scenery and gracious service at Triple Creek Ranch B&B. Guests stay in a unique ranch-style home situated on 160 private acres. The home is self-designed and built and features hand crafted post and beam design that will stun and delight guests. Guests are invited to relax and make themselves at home during their stay, which often includes visits from local wildlife right in the front yard and best viewed from the spacious and inviting deck. Deer, bears, birds, moose and rabbits are frequent guests. The sundeck also provides a stunning view of the glaciers on Mount Roche de Boule and the Seven Sisters.
Guests may choose from three bedrooms, each with its own distinctive character and offering comfort and the amenities and ambiance of home. Stays include generous, full breakfast made from fresh ingredients, most of which are grown and produced right on the ranch and picked straight from the garden during the growing season. In fact, guests who visit during the growing season are invited to help themselves to garden fruit. Home-made jams and jellies, free-range eggs, fresh-baked cinnamon buns, local organically-grown beef and fair trade coffee are just a few of the foods that guests will be treated to. Special diets are gladly accommodated by request. All stays include free laundry, local phone, photocopy, wireless internet and cell service.
Guests are encouraged to enjoy the many private trails that span and cross the property. Guests may also choose to take in the trails and surrounding terrain via ATV tour, just $179 for a 5-hour excursion. ATV tours include a beverage and a snack.
Triple Creek Ranch B&B is conveniently located just 11 kilometres from Highway 16 and 11 kilometres from ‘Ksan’ Historical Native Village. Guests who want the world’s best view of grizzly bears need only take an easy day trip to Hyder Alaska.
Meet Ron & Lila Fowler
Meet Ron & Lila Fowler
One thing Ron and Lila Fowler never get tired of is hearing the gasps of surprise and seeing the smiles on guests' faces when they first arrive on their ranch property. "A piece of paradise," "stunning views" and "awesome hospitality" are just a few of the comments that the Fowlers regularly hear from their guests. The ranch lies at the end of a road that seems to go nowhere, until suddenly opening up onto an expansive meadow valley, surrounded by snow-peaked mountains and teeming with wildlife. It is what drew Ron and Lila to the property in the first place, and they knew that it was just too beautiful not to share it with others.
"Our place is kind of unique," says Ron, noting that it feels remote and isolated, offering a true wilderness experience, yet is still an easy drive to town and to surrounding sights and attractions. The couple has operated their bed and breakfast on the ranch since 2007 and have entertained hundreds of guests since then, many of which come from Europe seeking a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a bear or a moose.
Ron and Lila love their 160-acre natural playground and all of the activity that comes with it. They keep a substantial garden in the summer time, and many of the ingredients in the meals they serve to their guests come straight from the garden, picked fresh just before serving, something that their guests deeply appreciate. They enjoy ATVing and hiking on the many trails that run through their property. Barbecues with neighbours and trips to the lake are also among the couple's favourite pastimes. They also like caring for their animals (a dog, a cat and three horses) as well as sitting on the deck and watching the wildlife that visit the ranch. "It's paradise," says Ron.
