The Ranch at Siwash LakeThe land at Siwash forms natural contours that define distinct themes of the resort. There are two main areas divided by a private lake —connected across a cattail marsh at far end via a solar-lit boardwalk. On one side is wide open terrain where wild hay meadows roll gently to water's edge, adorned with stands of white-barked, trembling Aspen trees. In this pastoral setting nestles the Ranch at Siwash Lake.
|When you arrive at the exclusive Siwash Lake, by helicopter, float plane, or by vehicle, you'll be amazed at how you ever found this unique hideaway in the remote wilds of western Canada.
At first, you may be taken aback by the blackened forests that line our 5km private drive—striking, silent sentinels bearing homage to a massive wildfire that blazed through the area in August 2017.
But when you see the ranch emerging as a lush, verdant oasis amid the burn, pause, take a breath. Look around.
You’ll see many features of a working ranch—horses grazing in the meadow, playful collies that greet you at the door, and chickens free-ranging for crickets in the grass. Piglets root about in their pen behind the barn and a few cattle lay relaxing together along an authentic wooden 'Russell' fence-line.
You’ll inhale an aroma of wildflowers, fresh cut hay, and wood smoke. Swallows swoop and chatter happily, while gossamer-winged dragonflies dart among the reeds at lake shore. Cariboo sunshine radiates warmth from an expansive sky and a gentle breeze caresses your skin.
Stress dissolves. Worries evaporate. You ponder the possibilities ahead...
Whether you're in pursuit of new adventures each day—roaming the range on horseback, hiking to waterfalls, casting for trout—or your idea of heaven is to curl up in the hammock with a good book—the magic of Siwash soon seeps into your soul.
You’re embarking on a journey into the unfamiliar and unknown. This is no ordinary place. You'll be tempted to stretch beyond your comfort zone, for the Siwash experience is full of intrigue. Alluring adventures are specially crafted to evoke emotion, inspire exploration and rekindle your senses.
In this powerful sanctuary, we harness the spirit of renewal sparked in the aftermath of a wildfire and help you to engage your mind, body and spirit to learn new things, gain new passions and reconnect with yourself, your loved ones and Nature.
