Property description

Nestled amid the serene forest and on a private lake, our secluded cottage offers the best of nature. Our 300 hundred acre property backs onto extensive crown land reserve. Beaver Lake is clear and excellent for swimming. Surrounded by nature, you will embrace the state of relaxation and simple pleasures.

A paradise for bird watching with over 47 varieties cataloged by one of our guests including nesting Bald Eagles. We have unique Falcons and Hawks nesting along the ridge and are on the migratory path for several species including Swans and Pelicans. Enjoy chatting with our friendly Otters.

Wake up to the cry of the Loons on the lake and enjoy the peaceful sunsets with a BBQ on the porch, followed by roasting marshmallows on your own fire pit. Star gazers delight! The Milky Way is fabulously visible.

Enjoy fishing, hunting, swimming, canoeing and endless wilderness trails for horses, bikes, quads or hikes. Area wildlife includes moose, bear, fox, cougar and deer. Try your hand at panning for gold and precious stones at Quesnel Forks. Experience the unique climate of the valley, hot summer days and warm nights.

Our comfortable Farmhouse cottage has a fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, outdoor seating and separate yard. Excellent setting for family gathering or a special romantic get-away. Pet friendly.

Horses welcome! we have pasture and endless trails to explore - you can also enjoy a bath in the lake with your horse!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a family that loves the outdoors and discovering special aspects of the natural environment. We get great enjoyment from sharing the wonders of our unique ecosystem with visitors. This rock we found is in a perfect sunny spot and is always warm to sit on rain or shine! Our favorite picnic site and place to simply contemplate and absorb the serenity of the forest.

Why the Owner Chose Lone Butte:
We searched for years for a place where we could waterskii at any time, having gotten tired of the over crowded lakes. At first site, we knew this was the perfect place for us! There has been a huge amount of work to reclaim the old buildings, but the effort has been very rewarding. The property was once orignally a cattle ranch and then became a fully operational Gold and Precious Metal mine. You will find many precious stones and fossils. The neighbors in the valley are wonderful, always willing to lend a helping hand.

The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
We have the serentiy and privacy we crave, yet we are close to the Big Lake community where there is a post office, library and store. We also can head up to Likely where they also have these but also a great little restaurant with the best fresh made Club House sandwiches you'll ever have!
