About Bear Creek Cabins

Booking for 2021!

We are located only about 12 minutes west of the Village at Pigeon Lake and 6 minutes east of Twin Lakes, so only a short drive if lake activities are what interest you. You can cook your meals in the privacy of your own cabin or visit one of the local restaurants in the area. Click here for the activities page.

We have five unique rustic cabins, each with its own special features. View them by clicking here.

We, Allan and Åsa Groeneveld are the owners of the ranch and together with our family and a couple of employees we run the ranch consisting of about 300 cows, 12 horses, and some donkeys, goats, sheep, dogs and cats. Allan has “cowboyed” his whole life and worked in a provincial grazing reserve for 15 years. We also run a custom grazing operation that for many years consisted of 3000 yearlings grazed on large private pastures.

Åsa is originally from Sweden and before ranching here she trained and competed with dogs at high levels. Åsa has also worked as a veterinary assistant and as a riding school instructor. We pride ourselves in great stockmanship and train our own horses and dogs. We actively participate in local rodeos and jackpots up to the provincial level. We can give lessons and clinics in for example roping and horsemanship. We are also proud supporters of the 4H community. Allan has been a 4H beef leader for over 25 years.

After ranching intensively for many years we have decided to open up our beautiful ranch to a few guests at a time. You can come and rent a cabin, you can come to visit our western town or even elope and secretly get married in our realistic mini church. 🙂 We will allow children (and adults) to meet some of our animals, but these visits need to be scheduled ahead of time and supervised as a farm can be a dangerous place if you are not familiar with it.

We offer trail rides and mini-clinics. You can bring a horse of your own or you can use ours. You can stay in a cabin or your trailer and your horse can stay in our barn. Please phone ahead for any such bookings.

Last but not least:
If you are renting a cabin but do not have a specialty booking with us – please respect and stay outside of the boundaries of the working ranch for your own safety.
