Welcome to the
Black Cat Guest Ranch

The Black Cat Guest Ranch is your mountain vacation retreat. As our guest in this woodland lodge, you will find that each of the 16 rooms is comfortably appointed with carpeting, two beds and complete bath. Your comfort is assured as you mingle with other guests around the large living room fireplace, in the dining room, games lounge, on the patio or in the gazebo. As you look out the windows of your room or the living room, you will enjoy an impressive view of the first range of the Rockies.

Warm weather activities include hiking and sightseeing. Scenic Trail Riding can be booked at nearby ranches.

Guided hikes of various lengths are offered throughout the summer. We also have many self-guided walks, with marked trails and maps provided. You can hike the spectacular Mt. Solomon trail to explore a mountain to its very top. Trails of lesser difficulty lead to equally beautiful lookouts and points of interest, like Solomon's Grave. You may see many of the species of wildlife which abound on the ranch and in the surrounding woods. We can recommend great hikes in nearby William Switzer Provincial Park and in Jasper National Park. There is also excellent white water rafting, trail riding and interpretive guiding in Jasper.

In the spring and fall we offer workshops in Watercolour Painting instructed by well known Edmonton Artis Robert Sinclair.

Try the Black Cat as a great place for a very productive corporate retreat or family reunion.

Participate in outdoor activities to your heart's content, relax in our comfortable lodge, savour the home-cooked flavour of our family-style breakfasts and you will find the Black Cat Ranch is the perfect place to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and appreciate the possibilities of a mountain wilderness area.
