This home is the perfect place to escape the pressures and hectic pace of city life. Robson Valley is a great place to Rejuvenate in the peace and tranquility of a true wilderness setting; Marvel at the sounds of silence broken only by the songs of the birds and the wind in the trees. Recuperate from city life as you contemplate the Rocky mountains which climb from the front porch or let the stress melt away as you enjoy a cup of tea while absorbing the magnificent vista of the Cariboo Mountains and Robson Valley from the back deck. In the evening watch the sunset, snuggle around a cozy fireplace, count the shooting stars, or roast marshmallows around the campfire.

Get back to nature while strolling forested trails throughout the 10 acre property and picnic on the banks of the Fraser overlooking the magnificent Dore Valley. You’ll find an incredible array of fauna, birds, and wild-life right at your doorstep. Endless recreational opportunities abound for outdoor enthusiasts including hiking, fishing, rafting, trail riding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. Jasper National Park and Mount Robson Provincial Park are only an hour away.

While you can enjoy the wilderness setting you don’t need to suffer the disadvantages of physical isolation. The village of McBride is just 6 kilometres away with all the services you’ll need to enjoy a comfortable stay in the mountains.

Summer Activities:
Hike in the mountains on local trails or head out on day trips to Mount Robson (45 minutes) or Jasper National Park. Visit the old growth ancient cedar forests recently discovered north of McBride. There’s great fishing in nearby streams and rivers or watch salmon spawn in late August on the Holmes River, Access alpine meadows with wide open hiking by simply driving to the top of McBride Peak (four wheel drive required), or follow one of many forestry roads to explore the local mountains. The Holmes River forestry road takes you right to the base of the Continental Divide. Canoe in local lakes or float the Fraser from the Village of Dunster and make land right on your doorstep. Bring your horses. The property is fully fenced. A corral and hay is available.

Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing, or just relaxing with a mug of hot chocolate around the fire: McBride is a winter paradise. Mount Renshaw is 6 kms and is an award winning haven for seasoned riders. High snowfall with moderate elevations creates great cross-country skiing opportunities. Two recreational areas offer groomed trails just minutes from town. Snowshoe trails lead to the back country and overnight cabins, or simply follow the forestry roads and explore the countryside. Winter access to the home is excellent via paved roads. There is plenty of parking and a U- shaped driveway makes access with trailers a breeze.
