Peaceful forest setting with spectacular mountain views. Beautifully crafted house, ideal for large gatherings. The amenities of McBride are 15 minutes away.
This place has the feel of a mountain chalet, surrounded by trees and quiet, with incredible mountain vistas out almost every window. The kitchen and living areas are ideal for large gatherings and the kitchen cupboards are full of everything needed for preparations of large meals. This is a great place where several family groups can meet, as each bedroom has their own washroom. Each group can have their own space, but also room to gather in the living areas of the home. There is a soapstone fireplace to keep you toasty in winter.
Scenic walks are available in the adjoining pasture land. Ranch tours to see the Fraser River, our cattle operation, and scattered meadows can be negotiated with the hosts on arrival. If you are lucky, you might see a host of wildlife, including moose, wolves, bear, deer, coyotes, eagles, hawks, and anything else that might visit.
The valley offers unlimited outdoor activities, with day hikes, rivers, and mountain biking trails in summer, and snowshoeing, cross country skiing trails, snowmobiling routes, and even dog-sledding tours available withing a half hour's drive in winter.
Town is a mere 15 minutes away, with restaurants, coffee shops and a wonderful Whistle Stop Gallery, stocked with locally made art and crafts. There is a weekly indoor market all year and a farmer's market on Fridays in summer. The new location on main-street has made the library/museum a great gathering place with free wifi.
Dunster is a sister community, 25 minutes away, with local tales of how the Flower Bridge came to be, and how the community came to own their own school. The Dunster General Store has been around for more than 100 years, and the people are always friendly. There is a weekly indoor market in the Dunster hall, and a weekly outdoor farmer's market in summers, along with an endless stream of music and drama shows.
We feel that our house is located in one of the most picturesque spots in the valley. The biggest draw is the quiet, the smell of the forest, and yet the openness to see the mountains. The peacefulness as you sit with a hot cuppa by a window in one of the many nooks in the house is the reason we love it so much.
Easy access to great alpine hiking & mountain biking trails in the region. Scenic walks are also available in the adjoining pasture land.
