Long valued by writers and artists for its peaceful, quiet surroundings, the Spring Valley Guest Ranch is the site of the newest SWG retreat. Located in southwest Saskatchewan near Ravenscrag, the ranch lies approximately half way between Eastend and Cypress Hills Park.
Set deep in a valley, among the rolling Cypress Hills, the ranch is home to a variety of rare breeds of chickens and cattle as well as horses. The environment is especially quiet, and the landscape spare and solitary. The Spring Valley Guest Ranch was the site of the first ever Aboriginal Writers’ Retreat in 2011.
Local attractions include Cypress Hills Interprovincial Park, Fort Walsh National Park and the T-Rex Dinosaur Discovery Centre.
