This is one of the prettiest areas for riding in the world. The Eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies has a tradition of ranching that started in the late-1800's and continues today. The lodge is part of a ranch in the foothills, with horses and horse riding being the main attraction. There is a large common area and kitchen (table seats up to 16) and 5 bedrooms, offering a total of 8 beds. During the winter season (Nov-April) we only offer bookings of the entire lodge on a self-catering basis. The lodge is located on the second story, so is not accessible by wheelchair.
Bragg Creek lies between Calgary and Banff National Park and we are 2 miles from the border with Kananaskis Country. There you will find hundreds of kilometres of trails for hiking, xc skiing and mountain biking. We are also on a paved road that is a popular route for cyclists.
Ideal of families, group of friends and small company get-togethers.
Sleigh And Wagon Rides
Sleigh Rides at the M & M Ranch combine the fun of a horse drawn sleigh ride through winter wonderland with the excitement of a pond-hockey game. Bring your wieners and marshmellows and grill them over an open fire by the lake. This is a fantastic get-together for family and friends - not only at Christmas, but all winter long! Only as long as the snow lasts!!
Our new guesthouse was finished in Spring 2009. Overlooking the horse pasture and riding ring, the "loft" is equipped with a full kitchen, spacious common area, two bathrooms and 5 well day lit appointed bedrooms.
We offer Ranch and Ride vacations if you don't want to rough it too much and prefer a warm duvet cover over a sleeping bag under the stars. You can rent just a room or the entire facility for your family, group of friends or business partners. Please check for prices and availability.
