DESCRIPTION of Property
You can be welcoming guests to your custom built, 4500 sq.ft. log home. Boasting six modern comfortable bedrooms, six bathrooms, two living rooms, and two outdoor decks, allowing for everyone to have privacy for distancing in all indoor and outdoor spaces. Complete with two kitchens and a self-contained suite, the home has a wing which is wheelchair accessible and offers a sauna, a metal roof, drilled well and is heated by a wood stove, pellet stove and electric baseboards for backup. The property boasts a barn set up for horses, a fenced yard, a large garden and accessed off a quiet no-through rural road.
This established property with return clientele is located between two of the finest freshwater fishing lakes in the Cariboo and offers a private forested rural setting with bountiful birds and wildlife. Operated as a successful equine guest ranch offering package & B&B based accommodations since 2002, the property has valid permit use for crown land for commercial purposes, allowing for use of a private trail that leads directly from the property to the lake. Fully backing onto crown land till Sulphurous Lake.
The surrounding Interlakes/Lone Butte/ Horse Lake area has its own established network of existing maintained forest trails used by horses and ATV’s in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter. With the most amazing ice fishing anywhere in the Cariboo at your doorstep this location would make an outstanding winter snowmobile and ice fishing destination, that could operate year round with summer ATV wildlife tours, and water play on the lakes. Horseback riding, canoeing, fishing, boat trips, mountain biking and wildlife viewing are just some of the activities currently offered.
A short 15 minute drive to the Interlakes Business hub offers you and your guests, choices for dining, groceries, fuel, salon, building supply, shopping, and a new drive in theatre. The surrounding area is a wilderness playground and used year round by anglers, hunters, nature enthusiasts and vacationers who drive past on their way to both The Mahood Falls and Wells Gray Provincial Parks.
The area sees a large influx of summer residents who have recreational cabins and properties in the adjacent Deka Lake Subdivision which has its own fire hall and Community Rate Payers Association. They have recently done an wonderful job improving and upgrading all the lake accesses at Deka, Sulphurous and Hathaway Lake and have cleared a fire break around the entire south east portion of the subdivision as a protective safety measure.
This is a rare opportunity to live and work on your own schedule and your own terms. Semi retire or expand and grow the existing business? You can continue the exceptional nature and equine guest ranch legacy, or create your own new Cariboo guest experience in one of the most relaxing natural settings you can find anywhere in the province.
