    Beautiful venue with affordable options

    The team at The RancheHouse were very responsive to all questions asked throughout the planning process. The venue was set up as expected and fit our needs perfectly. The planning coordinator can be a bit challenging to communicate with at times but at least did what was expected. Overall, would recommend!

    Cochrane RancheHouse's reply:

    Hi Taryn,

    Congratulations!

    Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear your day went well and our venue fit your wedding needs. We will will take your feedback into consideration and try to improve communication the future.

    Amazing Experience!

    We got married at the Cochrane Ranchehouse May 1, 2021 in the heat of the pandemic. There were many changes including 1 postponement during our wedding planning process, but the Ranchehouse staff were unreal to work with. They were understanding, reasonable and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding turned out so special. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a rustic venue with gorgeous views! Big thanks to Kattie and the rest of the Ranchehouse staff!

    Cochrane RancheHouse's reply:

    Hi Kat,

    Thank you for your kind words. We are so pleased to hear you had a happy and special wedding day. We appreciate your flexibility and kindness as we navigated through the ever changing COVID-19 restrictions. It has been a true pleasure to work with you the past 2 years. We wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.

    Excellent!

    We were privileged to have our wedding at this beautiful venue this winter. Kattie made things easy for us while we were planning from overseas and the whole event went so smoothly, start to finish! Staff were helpful and quick to respond to questions, Gourmet 2 Go created excellent food and Kattie helped us make sure everything happened! Highly recommend this gorgeous venue

    Thank you Rachel for your kind words. It was a pleasure to be a part of your special day. Best wishes to both Tim and yourself.

    Wedding Review

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception at this venue in mid September. The venue coordinator Kattie was AMAZING! She answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was extremely helpful with planning our wedding. The venue itself was amazing. If you are looking for an outdoor ceremony location with a breath taking venue then having a rustic / elegant reception then this is your venue. We couldn't have been happier with our venue choice and even our guests were amazed by the space. We highly recommend the Cochrane RanchHouse as a venue option for weddings.

    Cochrane RancheHouse's reply:

    Hi Dakota,

    Thank you for your kind words. We are honoured you chose us to be a part of your special day and overjoyed that everything went well.

    Best wishes to you both!

    Excellent Venue

    This venue was excellent for both a ceremony and reception. It has excellent photo opportunities nearby as well so it eliminates the stress of having to move around during your day. Kattie and the staff were amazing to work with. Everything went smoothly with their help.

    Stunning Locale and Supportive Team

    We booked the venue for our son's wedding dinner in August 2020, an year in advance. Our liaison with Kattie Pochapsky during the intervening period and especially as the event approached nearer was very good. She kept guiding us on all the RancheHouse contract clauses and requirements so that we were not caught unaware. She changed the Floor Plans a number of times to accommodate our preferences. Manager Kristie Bell was following it throughout. She was there to oversee the preparations on the evening of the event. Paul, Patti, and Alec were at hand and tirelessly did whatever was in their capacity to help us streamline the event. Our sincere thanks to all of them.
    The fabulous locale made it a memorable evening for all the guests. Almost none of them had been to the RancheHouse before and were absolutely delighted to discover it.

    Cochrane RancheHouse's reply:

    Hi Ali,

    Thank you so much for the glowing review and feedback. We are pleased to hear our venue was enjoyed by the couple & their guests.

    Best wishes,

    Rustic Charm

    The venue is beautiful with a backdrop of the valley. The interior of the venue (Hall of Vision and Chinook room) have a beautiful rustic charm with natural wood and stone finishes and wonderful lighting. There is really no need to overly decorate.
    The Event Center staff were very helpful during the viewing and planning and were able to answer all of our questions and in a timely manner. During our wedding, the event staff took care of everything, the setup, take down, cleaning, and any last minute requests.
    I would highly recommend looking at this venue for your next event, definitely a great value for everything you get.

    Cochrane RancheHouse's reply:

    Thank you for your valuable feedback, Allana, we appreciate the time you took to share your experience with us. We enjoyed working with you and Matthew, and we are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of your special day! Thank you for choosing to work with us, we wish you both all the best!

    Wonderful winter wedding

    We had our wedding there January 8th and it was the most magical day. Coming from out of country we weren鈥檛 able to see the venue until the day before our wedding, and when we did we were in awe. The venue is honestly so beautiful and doesn鈥檛 need too much dressing up with decorations- the wooden beams, stone work, and lighting are beautiful. The backdrop into the valley made for some stunning photos. The staff were wonderful to work with and made themselves available and flexible throughout the planning process. We are so glad to have chosen the Ranchehouse for our perfect day and would recommend it to anyone!

    Cochrane RancheHouse's reply:

    Hi Haley,
    Thank you for your positive feedback, we were honoured to be a part of your magical day! Congratulations once again!
