Star Gazer Luxury Tent

Perched on a wooden platform atop a high ridge where you can spot moose foraging on far lake shore, your Star Gazer tent features a custom sky-light for night sky viewing from the comforts of your king bed. There is the option for two single beds, and these luxury tents also have a queen-size sofa bed.

Each tent features hardwood floors, antique furnishings, and a wrought iron, glass-fronted fireplace. Panoramic vistas overlook verdant pastures, shimmering Siwash Lake, and the distant mountains. Indoor private bathrooms are located just steps away from each tent.

World-Class Glamping in the Wilds of BC

Siwash Lake Star Camp is located on the ridge portion of the property, which is across the lake from the ranch.

From the main ranch house — which is the hub of the resort for dining, lounging and guest lodge rooms — you will enjoy a 10-minute walk across the home meadow, over the lake via a solar-lit boardwalk, and up the trail through grassland carpeted with wildflowers.

Atop the ridge, with panoramic views, awaits your beautiful Star Gazer luxury tent.

Based on availability, two or three adjacent tents can be booked together for a family. For one of the most private and exclusive glamping experiences in Canada, a buy-out of the whole camp is suggested.

Imagine this....

As night falls, you're content under canvas beneath the stars while snuggled amid the finest linens. A loon call resonates from across the lake — the quintessential song of the wilds. A faint scent of wood smoke lingers from fading campfire embers, while a ranch horse whinnies in the distance.

Later, the moon casts gossamer threads of light across your canopy above. Through the window above your bed, you watch the Milky Way stretch across the night sky... Then at dawn, after a blissfully sound sleep, you awaken to crisp country air. Warmth radiates through your tent from the sun's golden glow upon canvas.

World-Class Glamping

We have been watching the land on the Ridge regenerate and flourish with awe, following the 2017 forest fire. Nature's enduring powers and beauty are incredible!

In 2019, we began to custom build the new luxury canvas structures described above. Measuring over 1000 square meters, Star Camp is now a self-contained private haven where families can unwind, relax and rest.

The views of wild meadows, the lake and distant mountains from atop the Ridge are stunning. It's the best place on the property to watch a stellar sunrise or sunset.

At night, by the warmth of a campfire, gaze at the most remarkable starlit skies. If you're lucky, you'll enjoy a show of Aurora Borealis — the Northern Lights!
