What a wonderful place. The more I explore BC the more I love it - and Tyax is a gem. Beautiful lodge at the end of a 100km mostly dirt road in the amazing Chilcottin mountain range. The lodge is everything it should be. The rooms are a bit pricey but when you consider the location the price was reasonable. There is also the option of camping at the lodge - but remember it is bear country so keep food away from tent. The interior design of spa is amazing - very modern. The rest of the lodge is classic huge cedar logs. Best part of the lodge is the restaurant. Best meals I have had in a long time and the prices were very reasonable - actually prices were cheap for the quality and location. Staff in restaurant very very good. Take the float plane if you can even if it is just for a tour through the valleys. There is a crazy loon that tries to chase the float plane out of its territory! We took our bikes up to Warren Lake (6100') on the most beautiful day and biked for 9 hours through mountain lakes, alpine meadows in bloom, fantastic scenery, raging mountain streams - you get the idea. For experienced cyclists only. Gas up in Lilloet. The drive to Tyax is a lot of fun and very scenic. Watch for falling rock and wildlife on road. Best nachos ever.

Room Tip: Spend $$ and go lakeside.

We had a wonderful stay at Tyax in August. The food was absolutely unreal. The accommodations were also perfect. We loved the view from our room. The beds were fantastic, warm duvets, comfortable and minimalist rooms. My husband spent the day fishing and canoeing on the lake while I went for a trail ride. The guides, the staff...everyone - awesome. We'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: Ask for lakeview!

This is an amazing wilderness location, you hear the Loons at night, but to hear the loons you need the windows to be open, the problem is you will hear a very loud party going on on the lake, the staff have build a raft on the lake where i was told they let the steam out, when I was canoeing on the lake the next day of the party I saw the makeshift raft, beer bottles, broken glass etc, total disrespect for the wilderness, nature, and peace of the guests. Hope they remove this nuisance, we go every year to Tyax, not anymore.

First off thank you for your post and giving us the opportunity to react to a situation that is fully within our control to solve.
Upon discovering the noise that this raft was generating and associated mess rest assured the raft was ordered dismantled and the site cleaned up.

Once again thank you for bringing this to our attention as this is how can continue to evolve into providing a 1st class experience in our wilderness setting.

I just returned from a 1-night stay at Tyax. I loved it and want to return for a few days this summer and in the winter when I am a good enough skier to jump in the helicopter (that takes off from the frozen lake right out front of the lodge - awesome!).

The staff were great, the steam room lovely, the early morning stretch class relaxing, the view outstanding and the bed comfortable. Not sure what else to ask for. The outdoor hot tub looked inviting as did the fire pit for summer campsongs. The entire atmosphere was welcoming ( as was the lack of cell coverage for a change).

Stayed at lodge for heliskiing tour. Very clean with very well-trained efficeint and professional staff. I believe they were genuinely glad to be working there.
My only concern was with menu for dinner: basically NOT an athelete's diet. Would like to see more healthy choices. Breakfast was better. It must be hard to get fresh vegatables up there in the winter.

Stayed there a few years ago and planning to return. Went on a horseback trip, quad tour and had a private fly fishing lesson. Everything first class, including the wine list. Highly recommend. Other dinner guests were a grizzly bear sow with 3 cubs grazing just outside, wonderful photo opportunity!!
