20 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 fishing 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 lodge.
Fulfill your own dream.
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
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 guest lodge. 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
guest lodge via Highway 24 (fishing hwy) as part of their travels.

built so successfully, but it is time for us to move on and retire, and we look forward to
spending more time with family.
