Property description

Our 2 handcrafted log cottages offer lots of privacy and breathtaking views of the mostly snow covered Monashee Mountains and the rolling hills, forests and private lake of our ranch, covering over 600 acres. Each cabin consists of an open living/dining area with a fully equipped kitchen, one full bathroom and a separate bedroom. A large sleeping loft overlooks the living room.
Sit back on your covered porch to enjoy your private BBQ taking in the sunset and views. A cozy wood stove provides comfortable heat on cooler days. Green electricity comes from a solar power system.
The cabins are within walking distance to the lake where you can fish for rainbow trouts.Or start your trailride or hike right from your porch.
Paddle out on the lake in our complementary canoe and watch countless birds and waterfowl such as bald eagles, ospreys and many different ducks.
Our ranch is home to lots of wildlife such as bears, coyotes, deer, elk, moose, marmots and many more for you to enjoy

hiking in the Monashee Mountains: hiking in the Monashees is an unforgettable experience as this is still true wilderness with glacier fed lakes and snow covered peaks and lots of wildlife to view

canoeing or kayaking on the shuswap river: The shuswap river is one of the most versatile rivers around with calm sections for unexperienced paddlers as well as whitewater for the kayaker.

fishing for rainbow trouts: fishing opportunities are countles, catch a rainbow trout in our lake or any of the surrounding waters, such as Sugar Lake, Echo Lake or the Shuswap river
