Dorrit Lake Wilderness Ranch
Bushman's Famous Cottonwood DORRIT LAKE Ranch is one of the best-kept secrets of the 100 Mile / Forest Grove Mountain Ranches to become available in decades. Owned by the family since 1931, the Ranch has not been actively worked for the past 30 years.
Mule, Whitetail, Moose, some Elk and many other creatures have taken this property over, and it is indeed wildlife galore.
The Ranch encompasses 140 deeded acres and additional Goverment Hay lease (approximate 5 ha ) and a Government grazing lease ( approximate 33 ha). For water supply, a water-license on Buffalo Creek is in place.
It is the astounding diversity of this private and pristine acreage that makes the Buffalo Mountain area so spectacular and unique.
Two older dwellings are part of the purchase. Both of them need some TLC but worthwhile work and repair.
Over the last 30 years, the current owners have enhanced the holding with careful stewardship of the land and native habitat. The result is a wilderness ranch of unsurpassed beauty and biodiversity that also presents an attractive land and recreational investment. The plethora of wildlife coupled with the diverse terrain and running waters makes for unmatched outdoor experiences, whether fishing, hunting, hiking, or horseback riding. This offering is the perfect Cariboo Hobby Ranch with a summer grazing and hay operation, fishing, wildlife, and plenty of privacy and seclusion.
