Retreat Wilderness Inn is an All Season destination, offering intimate, four star suites. With over 40 years experience operating this property, your hosts, Donn and Lee will assist in making your vacation one to remember. Our picturesque, landscaped, lakefront grounds provide an amazing setting for relaxing on the patio or watching the sunset on the waterfront deck as the loons sing their soulful call. Our guests are welcome to use our paddle boards or kayaks and we also provide fishing boat rentals. The Chilcotin Region, where distancing comes naturally, is British Columbia’s last frontier, a true wilderness and back country. Situated between the Fraser River and the Coast Mountains, gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest, this region provides some of the most diverse opportunities for outdoor recreation and Nimpo Lake is part of this enchanting area. The nearby forested community trails are perfect for hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, photography & bird watching. The viewpoints on these trails have breathtaking, expansive views of the ranchlands, forests and Coast Mountains. Guests can take advantage of a flightseeing tour and have a birds' eye view of Hunlen Falls, Rainbow Mountains and the Monarch Icefields. The rare white pelican, bald eagles, loons and river otters are just some of the diverse species that you will find locally. A short, 2 hour drive down the famous Hill, or Freedom Highway, is the Bella Coola Valley and the Great Bear Rainforest. Don't forget your camera as you transition from pine plateau to coastal rainforest, as there will be many photo opportunities along the way including grizzly bears and snow capped mountains. This diverse region is a must on your bucket list & we would love to be your hosts.
