Typical Day

Upon arrival, each guest is assigned their own cabin. This is a highlight of the ranch experience - our guests stay in the original log cabins that were built 100 years ago. Please take a few moments to breathe in the unique cabin experience, complete with woodburning stoves, hand-hewn log furniture, covered sitting porches with rocking chairs, and a view of the most beautiful lake in central BC.
The cabins have no indoor plumbing, but they do have electricity. There is a central shower house with showers and toilets. There is also a large 15-person sauna with a woodburning stove. For those looking for a more pampered experience, we also offer two large executive homes that feature indoor plumbing and four-piece bathrooms.

After the guest checks in and gets settled, it is time to meet the horse wrangler and get introduced to the horses. For 2016 The Flying U has 100 horses and four experienced horse wranglers. Each guest is assigned a horse according to his or her ability, and that horse will be the guest's mount for the duration of the stay. Guests are given a trail map and are free to ride on their own or with other guests on thousands of acres. Riders may saddle up between 9am to 4pm each day, except on Sunday when riding begins at 10am. You can order a packed lunch or come in for lunch, served from 12pm to 1pm.

After the day's ride, guests have a number of activities to choose from. There is swimming and canoeing on Green Lake, or enjoy a game of badminton, horseshoes, or our own unique game of "Attack Croquet." Or you can chose to head up to the health spa for a game of pool or a hot tub. We will also be providing water skiing lessons, which are popular for the teenagers. There is mini golf course in the back forty, or you can take a walk down to the pond and go for a leisurely row in one of our wooden row boats.

Mealtime at the lodge/dining room is announced with the clanging of the bell, following a tradition that goes back 100 years. Family and friends eat together ranch-style on benches with long tables. Breakfast is served promptly at 8 am (9 am on Sundays), lunch is at noon and dinner at 6 pm. Complimentary coffee and tea is available in the kitchen throughout the day. There is a weekly outdoor lunch and dinner barbecue. The Flying U has an authentic western saloon separate from the main lodge. The Longhorn Saloon is open from 2pm to 6pm daily for happy hour and again after dinner. Cocktails are served to the sounds of the circa 1880 nickelodeon. Beer, wine, cider and coolers can also be purchased in the dining room. Between meals you can order finger food at the pub or the hungry kids can come to the kitchen anytime for a sandwich.

There is a horsedrawn hayride every Thursday and Sunday starting at 7pm at the front of the lodge. Entertainment is topped off with an old western whoop-de-doo most Wednesday and Saturday nights. Square dances are held on Wednesdays throughout July and August, starting at 8pm.

At the general store, open 8am to 6pm, you can buy soft drinks and candy bars, snack food, horse treats, gifts and souvenirs.

At check out, guests are always reminded to confirm their dates for the following year in order to ensure cabin and date availability.

Sleeping and meals

Dining in the Communal Lodge:
Here you can enjoy three home-cooked meals a day in the spacious and bright dining room.

Our meals are tasty and wholesome, satisfying the healthy appetites our guests acquire after a long day in the saddle. We accommodate special diet requirements upon request.

1) Executive Log Homes - The Cariboo & Lakeside - We offer two executive log homes for those looking for that extra premium stay at the Flying U Ranch.

These homes are ideal for larger groups who would like seclusion, with full bathroom facilities and extra living space. Each home is sectioned into Lower, Upper and Full-House Suites requiring a minimum of 2 guests to book a lower level, a minimum of four guests to book an upper level, and a minimum of 8 guests for the entire home.

2) Historic Cabins - Stay in your own private log cabin equipped with a wood-burning stove, electricity and covered porch. Cabins range in size to accommodate from two to seven people and feature hand-crafted wood furniture. There is also a central bathhouse with modern showers and a sauna for weary riders to relax in at the end of a long day on the trails. Dogs are welcome at the ranch but are the responsibility of their owners.

You will be assigned one of the 28 historic cabins. Returning guests will have their choice if they want to use the same cabin.

3) Luxury Tents on Prospector Ridge - The Flying U Ranch has recreated this era by introducing 4 safari-style, luxury canvas tents overlooking the Ranch up on a place we're proud to call, Prospector Ridge.

Here you can stay in your own custom 12 x 16 ft. Prospector Tent where you'll experience the Canadian wilderness in private luxury. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Cariboo from the quiet seclusion of your own expansive deck, nestled in the trees just outside the main grounds.
