WATER FRONT LOG CABIN ON EAGAN LAKE-LAKE FRONT/PRIVATE/FLY FISHING

Cariboo Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, includes two Sleeping Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8)

'The Ranch' as we call it is located seven miles down a very good gravel road from Bridge Lake, British Columbia, (35 miles east of 100 Mile House off Highway 24). The Log Cabin is on Eagan Lake and features one of the few private sandy beaches in the area.

The location is very scenic and private. A beautiful sandy beach makes a great swimming and picnic area. The lake shore is very shallow, waist deep for a 100 feet or more making it a very safe area for kids to play. There is a large grassy area in front of the cabin suitable for many games.

The cabin has one private bedroom on the main level and sleeping lofts/two semi-private areas up stairs. The loft opens to the living area from upstairs. Shower/bath and toilet is adjacent to the private bedroom. Full daylight basement.

Facing the lake is a large (10 by 30) screened porch which provides a wonderful area for relaxing, reading and nature viewing. The porch also makes for a great place for the kids to 'sleep outside'.

Two boats (12 and 14 feet) with either gas or electric motors are included in the rent along with a sturdy canoe. Take a trip down the lake in the evening when the water is often calm and when many animals are about.

Bald Eagles and Osprey are routine visitors and can be seen soring over the lake. In the evening, loons have come to the shallow beach to get small fish to feed their young. A sturdy safe bridge crosses the Machete Creek where kids can fish for trout and pike minnow. A beaver family has a lodge just below the bridge and they are often be seen in the evening along with the local muskrats. Both whitetail and mule deer along with moose are frequently seen on or around the property. Wolves are in the area and have been heard at night. Nearby ranchers raise cattle as part of their lively hood and use the immediate area outside the fenced yard as 'range land'. On occasion a few cattle will encroach on our property, wanting to feeding on the lush grasses near the lake. They are easily run off and will often stay away for a number of days. Range cattle are very skittish and have never been a threat.

Fishing on Eagan Lake can be quite good. Catches of Kokanee and rainbow trout are sure to please both the fisherman and cook. Both species can be found directly in front of the cabin.

My brother, sister and I own the cabin jointly and use it every summer for ourselves and our families. Our father came to this area in 1937 to hunt moose. He fell in love with it, told his father about the area and a few years later purchased this property. The property has been the family for over 75 years. Our family owned the large ranch directly up the creek that can be easily seen from the bridge. It was a working cattle ranch where 100 cows were wintered. Their calves were sold each fall at an auction. We took in hay, rode the range checking on the cattle, repaired things and necessary and did all of the things ranchers had to do to make the place successful. This area has become a large part of each of us and we have passed on our love for it to our spouses/kids/grandkids. When we look out the window or go for walks, everything we see brings back a multitude of memories.

This is our 7th year renting the cabin and the experience has been terrific. We have made many new friends from BC, Alberta and some from the States. The care our renters have shown to our property has been superb. Most of our current renters have been with us for a many years, some for six years.

Our favorite fishing vacation

Beauty, privacy, wildlife galore and amazing fishing! What more could you ask for? We've never caught so many fish on a single trip. We saw bears, bald eagles, a fox and even heard wolves. And of course the loons calling to one another across the lake late at night is not to me missed.

The cabin is fully furnished with modern amenities yet completely cut off from the rest of the world. At night you cannot see another light or hear a motorized vehicle. A perfect getaway.

My family and I love to travel up to British Colombia each year for summer vacation. We usually stay at a different place each year. From now on I think we'd like to just come back to this cabin. We all agreed it was one of our favorite vacations.

The family that owns the cabin are the nicest people, just wonderful to deal with.
