About Karen Kellett

We have been raising beef cattle and commercial vegetables for over 40 years and have had a U-Pick berry orchard for 14 years. We live in a log house on the banks of the Fraser River just 200m from our rental home.

What makes this farmhouse unique

In summer, there is an abundance of berries to share with our guests from our own gardens and over 1000 acres of fields, forests and river shore to walk and explore. In spring and fall, migrating flocks of geese, ducks, swans and Sandhill cranes fill the skies and fields. In winter, snowshoeing and cross country skiing on ungroomed trails will keep you fit. We are only a few kms. from extensive snowmobile trails.

Perfect Christmas location!

  • 4 of 5

This was exactly what we were looking for - quiet, cozy, peaceful - we will be back. Single beds are a bit uncomfortable (hard) for adults. Master bedroom is so comfy and inviting for book reading and laziness. We loved feeding the wood stove and enjoyed that smell only wood fires can provide. Kitchen stove may need replacing soon but we managed to cook a full turkey dinner. Such a great Christmas!

Peaceful, quiet, private, rustic & clean

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful weekend away. We arrived to a nice warm fire. Clean rooms and comfy beds. We enjoyed walks in the snow by the river, games and books cuddled up by the fire. The cabin is exactly as described - a peaceful rustic get-away. We will definitely be back.

Rustic, unique, hospitable

  • 5 of 5

We stay at the cabin for 3 nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. Cabin is clean, well equipped, very secluded and feel like home. Owners are extremely friendly and helpful. We even got a privilege to tour their garden, pick-your-own farm and even a secret swimming spot on Frazier river just steps from the farm.

We had just enough time to visit Barkerville (of all ghost towns we had ever visited this one is loveliest and most authentic), old grown cedar grove (about one hour east of Prince George, highly recommend it) and got a refreshing swim in couple of lakes and rivers nearby.

I would certainly give the property five stars.

Wonderful Fall family getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two young boys, and I spent 4 days here and loved it! The cabin was very cozy. The woodstove warmed it well at night, the farm was beautiful to walk around, and there were sandhill cranes, black bears, and coyotes. Lots to explore in the area- we spent a few days in Prince George and went to Barkerville one day. The owner recommended a Persian restaurant which was fabulous!! Lovely place.
