Adventures abound at this private, off-the-grid hideaway, where you can explore the vast, rugged terrain of BC’s heartland with a private guide. Horseback ride to your heart’s desire amid 10,000 acres of open range. Fly fish for fat, playful trout (catch & release), or rediscover your sense of wonder with a backcountry hike amid an enchanting ecosystem — spot wildlife, discover hidden lakes, picnic on the sage-scented banks of a meandering stream, and cleanse under a waterfall. Navigate roaring river rapids during a whitewater rafting safari. Try your hand at frontier skills — learning bush craft, hatchet throwing, shooting, and cross-country archery. Then enjoy the soothing pleasures of outdoor yoga, a massage, and a soak in a wood-fired hot tub under the stars.
Open-air fine dining on the sundeck of the main ranch house overlooks shimmering Siwash lake and verdant meadows beyond, while at nightfall, nothing stands between you and the world’s clearest skies. Indulgent culinary fare features ranch-grown cuisine and food foraged from the nearby woods.
We invite you to travel back in time, transported by the rustic elegance of this award-winning lodge. Legendary for its bespoke, immersive experiences within a soul-stirring landscape, Siwash Lake beckons to those seeking authenticity and impactful, life-enriching experiences.
Following wildfire, the ranch is a real-life oasis and sanctuary where Nature’s resiliency takes center stage in a vibrant, regenerating ecosystem. Siwash Lake offers a captivating, transformational journey into the wild.
