In the mid 1950’s the owners of the property first welcomed their first guests to Ace High Ranch. It was around this same time that the current office and store was built as the owners new residence. The old Ace High barn had already been built some years before but unfortunately had to be taken down a few years ago due to safety concerns resulting from the compromised integrity of the log structure. Trail rides were a big part of the early operations, in addition to the great fishing. Horses were kept at the property until the late 1990’s.
Over the years the Resort has been owned by several different families, with the current owners having purchased the Resort in 2007. Under the new ownership the Resort was initially managed by Roger and Barbara Lincez, long time seasonal guests of the resort. They shared a great bond with many of the Resort’s guests and were very dedicated in making sure each guests visit was enjoyed to the fullest extent possible.
In 2013, management of the Resort was taken over by the team of Mike and Lisa Szabo. Day to day operations of the Resort are largely handled by Lisa, whose cheerful and helpful disposition has earned her the respect of the Resort’s regulars, many of whom have been coming to Ace High for upwards of twenty years. Both Mike and Lisa have been involved with Resorts for all their lives and bring a level of enthusiasm and energy that is contagious.
In 2009 the Resort was upended as we undertook a major upgrade to the Resort which saw the removal of the old trailers and rotten wood cabins and saw the development of 26 RV sites with full hook-ups including underground hydro, sewer, year round water supply, and upgraded roads. The Resort’s water and septic systems also saw upgrades during the 2009 and 2010 seasons. With this new development, individual strata RV lots have become available to purchase. For as little as $$$$$$, one has the opportunity to own their own piece of this historic Resort. Individual lots are all fully serviced waterfront lots and docks are shared between two lots.
These days, guests are a mixture of families, family reunions, fly-fishing clubs, groups of co-workers and couples and singles looking for a quiet weekend. Guests enjoy the large areas of lawn, beautiful sunsets, clean washrooms and showers. Fire pits and picnic tables are set in front of each cabin and campsite, and most have shared docks. A swing-set, volleyball, horse-shoe pit, motor-boats, paddle boats and canoes all provide lots of outdoor fun for the family. There is an excellent hike from the resort to Olson's meadows and butte. There are several guest ranches in the area to enjoy a day of trail-riding, as well as buffalo and alpaca ranches, which conduct fun and informative tours.
