The Bradshaw family, Dale, Wendy, Roseanna, Emily and Tanner, and our many four legged friends, invite you to share in our western lifestyle. The Red Lodge Guest Ranch, a historic family owned and operated ranch, has been welcoming guests from around the world, to experience our working cattle and horse ranch, for over 25 years. The Ranch was homesteaded in 1905 and now, into our fourth generation, has been in our family for over 85 years.
The Ranch offers services and amenities to create a truly memorable vacation or experience for a wide diversity of guests, whether you are planning a family reunion, anniversary or special birthday celebration, large family vacation or girlfriends’ get-away. Amenities include our licensed log restaurant, 20 rustic cabins nestled in the wilderness that will accommodate over 75 people, a 1200 sq ft meeting hall, an RV parking and camping area, a children’s playground and an indoor riding arena round out the list.
The versatility of the Ranch offers something for everyone, from a quiet getaway, family reunion, company picnic or corporate retreat, to an adventurous experience on the extensive Challenge High Ropes course or 400’ tandem zip line operated by Red Lodge Ropes Course, a division of NexLevel Challenge.
For folks who appreciate sincere, real country hospitality, year round ranch activities include working with cattle, saddling up and riding quality ranch horses, learning to handle a ranch rope, and harnessing and driving work teams! We also offer an Equine Communication 101 program for those who are interested in learning how to communicate with a horse, how a horse thinks and why they behave the way they do.
Or, simply sit back, relax and enjoy the quiet solitude, the country fresh air, the magnificent stars and the majestic beauty of the great outdoors.
We strive to offer excellence in hospitality in our authentic western style.
We are proud members of the Alberta Country Vacation Association, Alberta Outfitters Association, Red Deer Tourism and Innisfail Tourism.
‘Good Morning Wendy! Hope your brunch is going well today. Thanks again for a great weekend! It was the perfect spot for the Scrapbooking retreat. Everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. We had plenty of room to scrapbook in the meeting room. There were 16 of us and we feel that we could easily fit another 10 ladies to scrapbook with still plenty of room. We will be sure to invite even more scrapbookers next time.
The food, accommodations and staff were fantastic. Everything was delicious and accommodations very clean. All the ladies were asking when we could come back. The prices were reasonable and left room for the ladies to horseback ride and to consider a hay ride for the next retreat. We will be back in the spring! Thanks again for your great hospitality. You and your family and staff are wonderful.
Please find attached some photos we took at the retreat.’
‘Just a note to let you know, in the chaos of everyday life, I think often of the weekend at your lodge (Nov.8th’08). It was a wonderful weekend retreat for me, and the contact with horses was wonderful. You run a great place there and I was (for a weekend anyway) taken into paradise and away from my daily worries. Thanks so much.’
Just wanted to say thank you for the many great stays I have had at your ranch over the last 4 years while on my frequent business trips to Alberta. I always look forward to my visits to your ranch as they are the highlight of trips to Alberta. Your hospitality is second to none and I feel as comfortable as being in my own home. The view of the Rockies from the lookout is something I never forget and think of often when back in the flat lands of Southwestern Ontario.
I highly endorse anyone wishing to experience an authentic cattle ranch to pay you a visit and stay for awhile or make it their home base while they explore all the natural wonders Alberta has to offer.
