Grand Forks cottage description

You'll find us in a little valley in the middle of British Columbia where the views are spectacular and the quiet is amazing. Take pleasure in our wide open fields whether they're green or snowy white. Embrace the peace of the Granby wilderness on hikes through the Granby Provincial Parks and relax on rambles through our own forest trails. Come have a white Christmas with us in a cozy warm cabin with nothing to do but celebrate!

Cottages sleep between 2-6, and has a TV with DVD player, a full bathroom, in-floor heating, and either a queen or king sized bed with a queen futon, and a twin in the loft. Luxurious 1500 thread count sheets. The kitchen is equipped with hotplates, a toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, dishes, and a barbeque on the patio. All you need is to bring the food and wine! The cottages also offer a river view with a private picnic table and fire pit as well as a hot tub for the cottages. Wireless high speed internet is also available, but no cell phone service (which is a plus once you get used to it!)

There are also RV sites with FULL hookups available.

We’re offering you the chance to experience any part of our ranch that you want. Our horses are gentle and friendly, and will take you on trail rides through the surrounding mountains and fields. Or if you are uncomfortable with the horses, take a glorious hike through the mountains; either way you have the chance to breathe in the exquisitely fresh mountain air and to enjoy our most amazing views.

Or try your hand at tossing bales, feeding cows, going on a cattle drive, or even fixing fences! We are also willing to connect you and direct you towards many of our area’s tourist attractions.

                  Year Purchased: 1972

                  About: PV Ranch Adventures all started when Cornelius and Agatha Pauls bought the ranch and settled down with their 5 children. The oldest son, Allan, stayed to work the ranch with his wife, Gwendolyn. They had 6 children, and eventually decided to build a cottage as a tourist attraction. Their goal was to have sustainability for any of their children that might want to stay and live on the ranch with their spouses. There are now 3 cottages that are open for guests, and future plans for more to come. PV Ranch Adventures has been officially running since 2009.

                  Why Grand Forks:
                  This property was passed down from Cornelius Pauls to his eldest son, Allan. It is a family owned and operated for over 40 years. It is a piece of heaven.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  You will fall in love with the tranquil beauty, the quiet, the sounds of nature, the many adventures to be had that are waiting for an adventurous heart! The horses are friendly and horse-back riding is available. The Pauls family are well known in the area and become fast friends with all of the guests who are lucky enough to spend a weekend, or a summer in the cottages.
