Peaceful, amazing views, comfortable lodging.

  • 5 of 5

Murray and Julie (and Bo the dog) were wonderful hosts!! Very accommodating, and so kind. They were mindful of giving us our privacy even though we didn't really require it, as they live in the house next door. The lodge was very comfortable and beautiful and had everything we needed for 4 people! The views of the land, river and sky were unbelievable; like looking at a masterpiece painting. So much to explore there on the prairie land and the wildlife and native plants were abundant. I highly recommend this place for a peaceful rejuvenating getaway. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Murray and Julie, so much for everything!!

Absolutely Breath-takingly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Big Buck Lodge is an absolutely beautiful, luxurious cabin surrounded by the most breath-takingly beautiful scenery. The quiet setting, natural wildlife, and spectacular hiking and sight-seeing make this a place I will revisit often.

The owner was extremely accommodating and friendly and I appreciated all the special touches that made our stay extremely comfortable and relaxing.

There is no better place to stay if you want to experience the Splendor of the south Saskatchewan river and the charm of the local area.

I look forward to the firstt opportunity I get to go back.

First off the pictures do not show the owners live right next door to the cabin. Then the night before us leaving we packed up so we didn't have to in the morning and we were gone for the afternoon when I received a email from the owner that he had gone in to the cabin . So after we seen that we decided to just head home . I find this very disturbing privacy is a big deal to me .So I told him I was very disturbed by this he said they take privacy serious and sorry . We missed out on a evening and morning there with no offer to refund because to me I should be able to leave and not have to worry about who is going through my things . Anyways just my opinion . I thought many should know .always ask if there is anyone else on the property lesson learned

Owner's Response: Our goal is to have satisfied clients, always. We regret the misunderstanding in this case. Respecting peoples privacy, has always been, and continues to be of high priority. In this case, we broke with our normal protocol out of concern for and the well being of our clients. When they had not returned by 10:00 P.M. we were simply worried for their safety. Please be assured, that under no circumstance would we rummage through clients belongings. We try to inform all clients that our own home is nearby. We seem to have failed in this case, and will try to do better in the future. Our apologies.

Beautiful, Tranquil and Reaxing

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my partner stayed here for three nights, the cabin was beautiful, it was very modern, spacious and had everything we needed in it. The south Saskatchewan river was only a 10 min walk away and we had it to ourselves to relax and take in the scenery. The owner (Murray) was very accommodating and friendly and left us to enjoy our weekend. Would highly recommend this cabin for a relaxing/romantic getaway.

Peadar and Lynda.
