Like the entire planet we are adapting to Covid-19. The Mountain Thyme Guesthouse and the Willow River Inn continue to offer private unique accommodation for Families, Groups, and Independent Travelers, and follow constantly updated Provincial health protocols for sanitizing and contact. For this operating season at the St. George Hotel, we have also physically reduced the number of available rooms and adjusted our services and pricing to reflect the new reality. (See our St. George Page for more details) 

Our accommodations operate under the banner of Historic Stays, in Wells/Barkerville. That's because we both celebrate the unique history of our region and because we want your stay to become a part of your own unique history!The most important thing we can ask of you, is to take care of yourself, and in an orderly world that can include safe travel. We invite you to let us help you take care of each other this summer. If you need more information or travel advice, please feel free to contact us by telephone or email. Thanks for your support and understanding, Dave and Cheryl.

You've arrived at the end of the Gold Rush Trail, don't just visit it! Pan with miners, dance with hurdies, grab some grub, and pick up supplies. In operation since 1880, the St. George now has all modern amenities artfully tucked into a turn of the century gold rush experience. 5 minutes from the mining and arts host community of Wells, you have the best of both worlds.  Also see our accommodation options in Wells, below.
