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.
Michele purchased this cottage in 2009
Why Michele chose Cariboo
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.
What makes this cottage unique
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!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Had an awesome time feeding Diya carrots and holding the baby bunnies. The lake was fantastic and as warm as a bathtub. The goats are also funny. Great view from the "Hillton" cabin. The "Farmhouse" cabin was very welcoming and comfortable.
Thanks for having us, best wishes,
PS.. thanks for letting use use your kayaks, canoe and wifi.
