Enter the magic of Barkerville, Wells, and the Bowron Lakes. We have the most unique accommodation options in the area for groups of 2 to 9 people, a 1940s miner's cottage(Mountain Thyme Getaway) and a historic Inn(Willow River Inn), and two unique two person guest suites (The ForgetMeNot and the Fireweed) both in the center of nearby Wells.

In the 1930's Wells was the largest town in Northern BC. It has now shrunk to a small arts and history enclave with all of its original architecture intact! The Mountain Thyme, Willow River, and Meadow Suites offer affordable unique experiences for visitors. For visitors to Barkerville or to enjoy any of the experiences our region has to offer, each historic house and suite is a perfect base for groups, families, or couples to share their vacation experience in a unique and relaxing atmosphere. Private, roomy, unique. Within walking distance of everywhere in Wells, and 5 minutes from Barkerville. Wells is the living host community of Barkerville, with its own nightlife, theatre, retail and restaurants.
Bowron Lakes: Just 25 minutes to Bowron Lakes Provincial Park, or Troll Ski Resort, and at the center of a vast hiking, biking, skiing, and snowmobile network in the Cariboo Mountains. We make the perfect staging ground for outdoor adventure in the Cariboo.
Quesnel: a Hub community of the North Cariboo, Quesnel has all the usual big city amenities. Our Riverwalk guest-house suites in Quesnel feature a riverside experience on the Fraser, on a trail network, in a quiet neighbourhood, 2 minutes from downtown.
