Located close to the Englishman River & Rathtrevor Beach we have access to endless picturesque trails for riding, hiking and cycling! We enjoy sharing this Paradise with other Nature and/or Horse-Lovers! Located 15 minutes from North Nanaimo, five minutes from Parksville we have the best of all worlds.

Book Trail rides or stay in the Mountain View room and cook your own meals in the outdoor Kitchen. Enjoy RV or tent camping. We have recently added fully-serviced 50 and 30-amp Powered sites with water and sewer hook-ups. You will probably want to book a Trail ride or two during your stay - you will enjoy! A brief riding lesson is included with the Trail Ride and the Ride is through some amazing terrain including Arbutus Groves at the top of a hill or perhaps around some ponds or through Craig Creek which transverses the property in winter. The rides are adjusted to the level of the riders so everyone will have fun; from the absolute beginners to the very experienced riders.
