About this property

90+ Acre Ranch Directly On The Elk River In The Heart of the Canadian Rockies!

Family-friendly lodge with spa tub and sauna
If you're looking for an authentic Rocky Mountain experience, to bring your friends and family together and have memorable, meaningful interaction, in a historic ranch with privacy, world class skiing close by and dry fly fishing at your doorstep, abundant wildlife, and all the comforts of home or spa, you've found it. Built in 1906, Elk River Lodge is custom furnished with 10 luxurious beds, a magazine quality kitchen, hot tub, New outdoor cedar barrel Sauna!, outdoor grill, and views from every room. The hayloft in the barn is the ultimate place to listen to music and play games. It even has a 17 foot wide projector screen to watch your favorite movies with surround sound! Ideal for family gatherings, world class skiing and dry fly fishing, horseback riding, wildlife viewing, snow mobiling, bike riding, golfing, even bob sledding...the lodge feels as though its in a national park that's all yours! Herds of elk and deer graze across the meadows each day. The property is bordered by the Elk River offering miles of world class dry fly fishing in total privacy and a beautiful spring creek flows next to the lodge. Many other streams full of trout are close by.
We run an authentic working ranch that boards horses and are ideally set up for Bed and Bale as well! Bring your fly rods or skis, camera, hiking boots and even your horses!
There's a large wood stove in the great room with plenty of cut firewood at your disposal, a foosball table and antique style record player with a nice collection of old vinyls, a hidden TV with a collection of movies, and a fire pit outside for roasting marshmallows while listening to the elk bugle.
The lodge is ideally located to take day trips to the surrounding national parks including Banff, Waterton and Glacier, as well as the provincial parks including Elk Lakes and Height of the Rockies.
We can arrange Grizzly bear viewing and horseback flyfishing trips to alpine lakes and pristine tributaries that seldom get fished, in valleys with no roads...along with mountain lion, wolf and linx hunting for the more adventurous...
We manage the property as a sanctuary for wildlife which creates the ideal setting to restore the soul and the lodge is ideal to comfort the body.
Elk River Lodge provides the ultimate way to experience the splendor of the Canadian Rockies, the way Montana used to be 100 years ago, only better.
We were recently spotlighted on Homeaway. See the link for the interview:

Great weekend on the Elk River!
We had a great family weekend at the Elk River Ranch. Bill and Jason were very accommodating and made the entire process easy. There are panoramic views from each direction and fall is a beautiful time to go! The scenery and wildlife at the ranch is amazing! Can’t wait to go back.

Thanksgiving weekend 2021
IF you want to get away from it all and experience the quiet country life this is such a great place to do that. It is so cozy with a big fireplace in the family room. Large dining area and equipped kitchen. There isn't a bad view from any window in the place. They all have a different view of local mountains, rivers, pastures with grazing horses and it is common to see elk and deer moving through. Families can gather with ample bedroom space and three newly renovated bathrooms to accommodate the needs of all. Relax on the porch in the hot tub or sauna all while being one with nature. One neat feature in the warmer months that we just squeaked in in October was the great barn with its large theatre style screen and speaker system for family viewing and fun! The outdoor fire pit is another gathering place and some nice paths down to the river provide nice exercise and outdoor fishing sport. All needs were met and exceeded our expectations for family gathering connections. Thanks Jason for opening up your home for others to enjoy!

Amazing Weekend Getaway!
This amazing property leaves you wanting more! Next time we will be staying longer for sure. We loved the scenery, the beds were so comfy, the sauna and hot tub was a big hit. Jason gave exceptional customer service and our stay was perfect. We will be back!

5/5 Excellent

What a Beautiful space!
I stayed here with a few friends for part of a wedding celebration. From the moment we checked in, we were in awe of our view. This place really is incredible. The property manager was so quick to answer any questions, even the ones that were right in front of us! Such a wonderful stay, would highly recommend.

Winter Fun - Summer Delight. Amazing!
This was our fourth stay at the Diamond B Ranch, but first time during the summer. Our usual February winter family get-away was postponed twice due to covid travel restrictions. The owner Jason was kind enough to help us reschedule to a date that worked for everyone. Typically, the outdoor hot tub is an absolute hit after spending half a day skiing in Fernie or snowshoeing around the 90-acre property. This year we were able to dip our lines and our feet in the rushing water of the Elk River to cool us off after a nice easy trail hike to Fairy Creek Falls. As usual the property was nice and neat, beds cozy and picturesque views you have to see for yourself. So many reasons to keep us coming back!
