Deluxe Tents


Perched on wooden platforms atop a high ridge where you can spot moose foraging on far lake shore, the Rose, Willow, and Lake deluxe tents feature a custom sky-light over a king bed that can be split into two single beds, plus 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 snow-capped mountains. A separate private wash house, with two 3-piece bathrooms, is located just steps away.

Signature En-suite Tent


On the secluded side of Star Camp, set in a meadow of wildflowers, is our Siwash Lake signature en-suite tent, the Bear Tent.

Throw open your privacy shutters on the east side and watch sunrise over the lake as you take an invigorating morning shower in the great outdoors. Or gaze out over the wilds to the far-off Marble mountains, while you enjoy a glass of chardonnay on your west facing deck at sunset.

This tent features a custom sky-light over a luxurious king bed, plus a queen-size sofa bed. Bear Tent has hardwood floors, antique furnishings, a wrought iron, glass-fronted fireplace, and a 2-piece ensuite bathroom under canvas as well. A French door leads to a private cedar-clad patio with outdoor shower.

Custom-Built Luxury Camp

Inspired by the rebirth of the surrounding landscape, we worked with canvas and wood while applying traditional frontier and Indigenous designs to create structures that harmonize with the regenerating forest, so our guests feel at one with Nature.

By adding a special sky light to our classic white prospector tents, we offer a rare adventure in the wilds that you'll cherish forever.
These lovely canvas structures are built on raised platforms for minimal environmental impact.

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 a rare and unique, post-wildfire snag forest that is carpeted with bright pink fireweed flowers.

Atop the ridge, with panoramic views, awaits your beautiful Star Camp™ tent.

Based on availability, Siwash Lake Star Camp™ can be booked for a three, four or seven night stay. Tents can be individually booked, or 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
Siwash Star Camp™



 
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!

We have added a private tented camp with new luxury tents in this unique setting to resurrect the world-class glamping experience at Siwash Lake.


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 your lucky, you'll enjoy a show of Aurora Borealis—the Northern Lights!
