6 Bedroom, 3 Bath Custom Furnished Lodge Offering Privacy and Comfort
About jason trochessett
I read an article about the Canadian Rockies in National Geographic nearly 40 years ago and began a quest to one day have a ranch in the most beautiful place in North America. Now it's a dream come true for friends from all over the world. When not being rented it's frequently used to raise money at auction for charities to help people in need and conservation organizations. I'm an avid fly fisherman and conservationist who believes in protecting wild and beautiful places such as the Elk River Valley in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.
jason trochessett purchased this Lodge in 2002
Why jason trochessett chose Sparwood
The fishing, abundance and diversity of wildlife, scenery and setting on a historic ranch in the heart of the Canadian Rockies creates memories that last a lifetime. The dry fly fishing for wild cutthroat trout is world class and truly rare. The herds of elk that graze across the meadows is something most would only expect to see inside a national park, with crowds of people watching, but here we have it all to ourselves. The historic ranch provides a feeling of going back to a simpler place and time, clears the mind from distractions and stress of modern life and brings families and friends closer together.

Had a amazing weekend
Sharing this incredible place with families and friends is a dream come true for us. It's too beautiful not to share!
Was a great place for a large family getaway!
Thank you Hazel! We love sharing the lodge with families like yours. We hope you'll come again.
This location is so peaceful. The only thing we watched for was the elk but unfortunately they never passed the property. Maybe next time. This property was above and beyond our expectations, the kids loved the fooseball table and the dining room table allowed us all to play games. We loved our stay
No Place I’d Rather Stay in the Elk River Valley
Beautiful working ranch right on the river. Clean & comfortable, yet loaded with character, it’s hard to imagine a better spot for fly fishing enthusiasts to spend a few days. A special place for sure! We’ll be back.
We had a great time.
We had a great time. Everyone enjoyed the ranch and all of us would come back again. On the last day we were able to hear the elk bugling which many in the group had never heard before.
Thanks for coming back again this year! The wildlife is so amazing to see and hear. We're striving to constantly make it all better and couldn't do it without loyal guests like you.
Elk River Lodge is located on a beautiful 90+ acre ranch bordered by the Elk River offering world class dry fly fishing and wildlife viewing straight from the property. Originally built in 1906, the lodge has been carefully restored with custom furnishings throughout.
