We were in the separate cabin from the main guesthouse which has a high standard of finish, a comfortable bed and everything you need to make yourselves comfortable. There is a lovely view across the valley. Use of the hot tub... More

After arriving at this B&B we completely came to rest. We wish we could have stayed longer. The owner is a gem. Engaging conversations, very service orientated and extremely friendly.

We were surprised by the beautiful and quiet area. We stayed in a fully furnished and clean cabin. A lot of privacy. Outside was a lovely garden, terrace with nice views. We could use a hot tub. The owners, Ron and Shauna Plamondon, were very kind and willing to give information about the Wells Gray Provincial Park Owner and more.
