Welcome to Southwind Ranch
Shuswap Vacation Rental

Southwind Ranch is located in the heart of the Shuswap Lakes District. High on a plateau above Shuswap Lake, where a soft southern breeze comes up from the lake to ease the heat of a summer day and give the ranch its name. Located 20 km. west of Salmon Arm on Ford Road in the Tappen area, the ranch is just 2 km. off the Trans Canada Highway, making for easy access and convenient to all services, but away from the noise and hurry.

Southwind Ranch is a great place to escape the everyday world. Pass through the gate and let the beauty and tranquility of Southwind Ranch help you unwind and relax.

It is everything that the discriminating traveler has come to expect: quietude, charm, warm hospitality, and comfort with the perfect blend of adventure.

Joe and Lynn Stanley are proud to be your hosts. Striving to make you feel as “welcome as the flowers in May.” The Stanleys cater to people traveling with or without horses.

Through the spring and summer months the ranch is host to a number of horsemanship clinics. Featuring trainer Josh Nichol of Alberta. These clinics are BYOH (bring your own horse), again see clinic page for details.

The ranch is sorry to say that they do not provide public trail rides. But if you are bringing your own horse, the Stanley’s would happily direct you to excellent area trails.

Southwind is every inch a horse ranch, but Lynn has always been an avid gardener. Always finding a new spot to tuck in an unexpected flower bed or water garden. Lynn hopes guests will enjoy her labors as much as she does, and feel free to wander or just sit.

We hope to entice you to our very special place in the heart of the Shuswap Lakes District.
