  • Every time that we are in Golden we visit Leo and his buffelos. One can shoot a lot of nice Pictures and Leo knows so much about his animals and the surrounding area.  more »
  • During our trip in Western Canada we stopped at this ranch located in the beautiful setting of the Rocky Mountain, where Leo (the landlord) has a Buffalo farm. What a perfect place for them as they have plenty of space to move around. This guided tour costs $15, I highly recommend to all who pass in those areas to stop and see the Majesty of these creatures!

  • I love this ranch. The tour is inexpensive and very interesting. Leo is a great tour guide and is very casual about the ranch. Its unlike resort tours or other interpretive tours on the area. A one of...  more »

  • Such a beautiful place to getaway! Wonderful host, Leo, and stunning scenery. A great example of Canada’s west coast mountains and natural beauty. Of course, the wood fire hot tub is always a bonus.
  • July 14/17 we called the night before to check the hours as none are listed on the website. It said "daily from 10 am to 1 pm". So Saturday morning July 15/17 we drive from Golden to the Ranch. We found it no problem, went all the way to the gate, where a sign simply states "Closed Today". This was the last stop before heading back to Edmonton. No sign up at the top of the entrance, nothing on website, nothing on the voicemail. It would be extremely helpful to have more ways to determine hours, especially with social media or at the very least on the voice mail, when calling. We were very disappointed, as we have read such great reviews.
  • Our stay with Leo, Chester Jr. And the gang was unlike any other. We rented the house and everything from the wood fired hot tub to the natural clay exfoliation was surreal. Stop by for a tour, or stay for a while through Air B&B. Perfect spot for adventure or relaxation.
  • Leo is an amazing storyteller and it's very interesting to hear about his life and experiences. Definitely recommended.
  • We had an amazing day today, which we will never forget!!! If you arrive around 10AM you get to see Leo attracting and feeding the herd of buffalos with it majestic leader Chester Junior. Leo knows everthing about these beautiful animals and the photorealistic surrounding he lives in and raises his herd. Tickets were only $15 each and we've spent about two hours on his ranch. Thanks Leo and Chester Jr.! :-) Kind regards, Dennis & Stephanie (The Netherlands)

Where to stay in Golden

For convenience and proximity to local shops, stay at one of the lodges or bed and breakfasts located within the grid-like streets of the town center. If you want a bit more space to enjoy the natural settings, look out of town to nearby Edelweiss, where you'll find a range of inns and lodges just off the Trans-Canada Highway. If skiing is your main game, look west along Kicking Horse Trail, where you can stay at the base of the nearby ski gondolas.
