Enjoy a luxurious stay in our family home, on the shore of Opheim Lake. Our timber framehouse was built using historic crafts and modern methods and materials from around the world in order to create a unique, energy efficient home in harmony with the surrounding natural area.
Sleep soundly in our guest bedroom on the mezzanine floor. It boasts a deluxe king-sized mattress and beautiful views of the peaceful farmland and eagles' nest. Bathe in the luxurious guest spa room where you can enjoy views of the Opheim shoreline from the comfort of a claw-foot bubble bath. Lounge in the mezzanine library with views over the lake reading tales of the Cariboo, its history and its wildlife.
Wake up feeling refreshed and enjoy a freshly prepared breakfast. We are proud to cook with local, organic farm produce. On our breakfast table you'll often find fruits, wild edibles, salads and vegetables from our land and eggs from our friendly ducks and chickens. The meat on our table is also healthy e.g. grass-fed beef.
In summer, paddle and swim in the lake or take a peaceful walk on our network of trails linking lakes, forests and farmland. In fall, enjoy the migratory birds in this birder’s paradise and watch animals like beavers busily preparing for winter. In winter, cross country ski on our trail network, go snow shoeing or ice skating when the lake is frozen and smooth. In spring, delight in the return of the birds and waterfowl as you walk around the farm and adjoining areas. You may have the opportunity to observe the many courtship rituals of the smallest to the largest birds i.e. hummingbirds to eagles and Sandhill Cranes. References are available to help you identify flora and fauna, including tracks. For those interested in life on a small scale farm, we’d love to tell you more, give you a tour of the earthship inspired cabin, or even just take you out to meet the ducks, chickens, and horses of Heron Point Farm. Canoes, kayaks, paddle boards and all the equipment you need for a great paddle is also available for rent. Find out more here.
