Where are you located?Echo Valley Ranch & Spa is located 50 km outside of Clinton, BC. It's about 5 hours north of Vancouver, and 2.5 hours west of Kamloops. The Highway going through Clinton is Highway 97, also known as the Gold Rush Trail. The drive from Clinton to the ranch takes about 45-60 minutes, 33 km of this route is Jesmond Road, a well-graded gravel road. Jesmond Road is generally in good shape, but can get washed out with pot holes after the winter or after longer periods of rain. You can find detailed directions on how to get to Echo Valley here.
Are you open seasonally?Yes, we are. We open for the season on April 1, and close for the winter on October 31.
What time is check-in?Check-in time is 2:30 pm and check-out at 11 am. As we provide three meals per day for you, you are welcome to stay for lunch on the day of your departure, or our chef will pack a lunch to go for you.
Can you accommodate dietary restrictions?Yes, we can! We accommodate all dietary restrictions and requests, and our kitchen staff will ensure your needs are met with the utmost care. However, due to the nature of an open ranch kitchen, and despite precautions, cross-contamination can occur.
Do you offer a kids' program?We do, during our family weeks in July and August. Our ranch is adult-oriented (13+) for most of our season, but we are delighted to welcome children of all ages on long holiday weekends, and during our family weeks in July and August, when we also offer a daily kids' entertainment program.
Is it possible to only book the spa or a ride, without staying at the ranch?Yes, it is. However, we do give our guests first choice, so we cannot confirm availability of spa treatments or rides until the same day. If you are interested in booking a spa treatment or a horseback ride without staying at the ranch, please call the ranch directly at 250-459-2396 on the day you wish to book.
Is the ranch pet friendly?Yes, we are! We welcome cats and dogs, for an additional $20 pet fee per day. If you want to bring your pet, you also have to book a cabin, as we do not allow pets in our main lodges. It's also possible to bring your own horse to the ranch. The boarding fee is $25 per day, and we require a recent (not older than 10 days) certificate of health from your vet. Please contact us for details of which vaccinations / tests are required.
