16 years ago, we fulfilled our dream and moved to Canada. A log home between two lakes, with untouched nature and tons of trails for horseback riding and hiking trails right at the door step.  We understand that our daughter and son do not wish to take over the ranch after finishing their degrees here in Canada. So we are giving you the unique opportunity to own this beautiful, well established guest ranch. Fulfill your own dream.
The house:
The Beaver Guest Ranch is a successful family business established in 2002 in the South Cariboo Region of BC. The property is located within minutes of two lakes and borders crownland on one side.
The log home was built in 1997 and completed in 2002. It has 5640 square feet and two levels; the guest rooms are located on the lower floor and the upper floor is private, with completely separate entrances. The 2583 square feet guest area includes 4 rooms, 3 baths, a kitchen, as well as a spacious dining and living room area. The private level includes a grand bedroom, grand bathroom (with a whirl tub for 2 people), office space, another washroom and a very open and spacious living and dining room, with 4 large windows and a wood stove. The kitchen includes an island with lots of counter space. In addition, the upper level includes a private suite with its own kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Two balconies extend out of the upper level, one from the grand bedroom and one from the suite. The house can be heated with electricity, a wood or a pellet stove. Good isolation allows for reduced heating needs. Both levels are equipped with English-and German satellite TV and internet. The house includes several 110 and 220 volt outlets. Highspeed internet and W-Lan is set up. Next to the main house is a sauna and storage room, as well as a 25 kW generator which can be utilized during power outages.
The property is  10 acres, slightly sloped, with an abundance of healthy trees. It includes a well that has been tested on a monthly basis for the business, always with outstanding water quality and quantity. The ranch has its own sewage system, which enlarged in 2005 to accommodate the business. The 2 paddocks, completely fenced fields, shelters, and roundpen make this property suitable for several horses. Behind the property, on the North side, is crown land where a 20-minute trail leads down to Sulphurous Lake.
A 35 minute drive takes you to the closest town called 100 Mile House. The town offers supermarkets, schools, sport facilities, a hospital etc. A school bus system is in place. A small supermarket, gas station and hardware store is located within 15 minutes of the ranch. The next biggest city is Kamloops which is 2 hours away, and Vancouver is a 6 hour drive. Many guests travel through BC on their own and access the ranch via Highway 24 as part of their travels.

The roundpen is ideal for training with horses. The riding arena is covered with wood chips and especially useful for beginners learning their first tricks.
Following a trail for 20 minutes adjacent to the property takes you to Sulphurous lake, where a floating dock has been tied to the shore. It is ideal for guests to take out on the lake for swimming and fishing. Sulphurous Lake with its crystal clear waters is great for canoeing, and Deka Lake includes a great little island to be explored.
The following two maps outline the location and display the vast amount of lakes in the area.
A day trip to Wells Gray Park is well worth it to see the breathtaking waterfalls.
