Step off the grid and explore the Northern wilderness from our home in northwest BC. Your own private room is located in a bright and sunny addition to our original log cabin built in 1979. Amenities include solar power, cold running water, wood heat in winter, indoor plumbing. Of course, the outhouse is still in back if you want the true back-to-the-land experience!
Located on the historic and unbelievably scenic road to Telegraph Creek, we are a 20-minute drive off Highway 37 and easy to find. Another 2 hours will find you in the Gold Rush town of Telegraph Creek, a world-renowned Salmon fishing region.
We have well-maintained walking trails out our back door, and can show or lead you to beautiful hikes in the surrounding mountains and wilderness parks. Our place is a good staging ground for excursions into the Spatsizi and Mount Edzitza Provincial parks and the Stikine River. We can connect you to local guides and outfitters who can get you into one of the last true wilderness areas in North America.
We will be sharing our home with you and will be present during your stay. The house, though small, offers quite a bit of privacy when you desire it. Meals can be arranged for an extra fee or you can bring your own food and share our kitchen and dining space.
This is a remote area of British Columbia so the only public transport is the small airport in Dease Lake with flights from Smithers, BC. We could arrange to pick you up at the airport. However, you will be limited in what you can do if you do not have a car or truck.
No smoking in the house.
No outdoor boots past the entryway. Muddy equipment must be removed on the porch!
Dogs welcome but must be left outside- no muddy paws in the house!
Dry your equipment outside or in the basement.
Breakfast available for an additional fee of $8/day per person. Other meals or snacks for an excursion could be provided- please ask!
We had a great time with Craig and Marylou. They have taken excellent care of us during our 8 day stay. Their house is self-built and every item seems to have a special story behind it. All modern comforts are available, some a little primitive, which makes for example taking a shower a real special, nice experience! It is a great place with plenty of space for relaxing, oppurtunities for scenic day-trips and come home and enjoy the pleasant company of Craig and Marylou. We will remember our stay and look back on it with joy.
We are two retired teachers who have lived most of our lives in Northern BC. We love to travel the world hiking and camping. We also love museums, archeological sites, and out-of-the-way places. Our interests include craft-produced coffee and beer, and world cuisine.
Our home is an off-grid log house in the beautiful Cassiar mountain range in the far north west region of British Columbia. We have ten acres of homesteaded land in a pristine wilderness environment, accessed by a well-kept gravel road 12 miles off of Highway 37. We love to show visitors around this amazing place!
We are very good company as guests, bringing with us our good humour, adaptability, and numerous stories from a lifetime of adventures. Our kids say that we are very easy to have around the house!
