La Reata is a working cattle/guest ranch in the beautiful Saskatchewan River Valley along Lake Diefenbaker. The people who live in the community of Kyle (150 km southwest of Saskatoon) work hard and relax on the prairie. Since its beginning in 1996, La Reata has welcomed guests for an intimate, real-life ranch experience, hearty cowboy fare and plenty of fresh air. Life here follows the seasons and the rhythm of the herds.
This three-day, two-night package starts at $395 for adults ($295 for children 8-12 years of age; $195 for children 4-7 years) is available until October 15, 2012. It runs from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. Number of guests limited to 8-16 per week or group bookings of up to 20 people.

Vacay.ca Recommends a Vacation in Saskatoon
Your trip to La Reata Ranch will probably begin and end in Saskatoon. While these two communities aren’t exactly close together, it’s still worthwhile to consider stretching your holiday a few extra days longer if you can because Saskatoon is worth a visit.
Vacay.ca Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi wrote about his recent experience in his article “It’s time to take Saskatoon seriously.”
Brijbassi wrote: “Beyond cool, Saskatoon and its surrounding areas are a delight. (And, yes, if you’re reading this in Toronto, that’s written with a straight face.) The annual blues and folk festivals are becoming more attractive to visitors and musicians each year. About five kilometres north of the city, the Wanuskewin Heritage Park offers a fascinating glimpse into an archaeological dig that has unearthed First Nations artifacts older than anywhere else in North America. If the streets aren’t picturesque, the bridges that connect them are, and there’s enough nightlife to keep things interesting most evenings of the week.”
