Property description

"The more we migrate to a technical world, the more sublime nature is to behold.", writer D. Grant Black.

Nestled amid our serene forest and on a private lake, our secluded Heritage Farmhouse cottage is the perfect nature retreat. Our 300 hundred acre property backs onto extensive crown land reserve. Beaver Lake is clear and excellent for swimming and has a variety of fresh water fish. Surrounded by nature, you will embrace the state of relaxation and simple pleasures. Experience the unique climate of the valley, hot summer days and warm nights.

Our Heritage Farmhouse cottage is furnished with fine antiques and comfortable furniture. It has a large fully equipped kitchen with double sink, microwave, stove, fridge, dishwasher. DVD/CD, Wii, board games, movies and music provided. Three bedrooms, plus private sitting room with double sofa bed, family room, one full bathroom with shower and bathtub. Excellent setting for family gatherings or a special get-away. The deck is complete with table and outdoor seating. Pet friendly.

A paradise for bird watching with over 80 varieties cataloged by our guests including nesting Bald Eagles nesting in clear view from the deck. We have unique Falcons and Hawks nesting along the ridge and we are on the migratory path for several species including Swans and Pelicans.

Wake up to the cry of the lake Loons and enjoy the peaceful sunsets with a BBQ on the porch, followed by roasting marshmallows over your own fire pit in the fenced farm yard. Enjoy chatting with our friendly Otters!

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, otter, weasels, ermine and deer. Try your hand at panning for gold and precious stones at Quesnel Forks.

Private yard and fire pit. Outdoor seating, propane barbeque and outdoor privy with a view! The cottage is located adjacent to the lake. No neighboring cottages, no foot traffic.

We're off the grid! No cell access in the valley. No TV. Phone and limited internet access available at the office upon special arrangements.

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 Cariboo F, BC, Canada:
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!
