Location & Accommodations


Where Are We?

  Located in the Cariboo Mountains, in Central British Columbia, approximately 260 air miles northeast of Vancouver, our home base is on the picturesque south shore of Quesnel Lake, the deepest fjord lake on earth. The Cariboo Mountains area is noted for spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife and one of the rarest temperate rain forests on earth. Four major parks - Cariboo Mountains Park, Cariboo River Park, Bowron Lake Park and Wells Gray Park - border this wilderness region.
