Excellent stop over en route to Jasper from Whistler. Such a lovely welcome to this property. Room spotless and breakfast excellent. Lots to do in area so wish we'd been staying for longer. Wanted to take Stuart home - he's adorable !

We were crazy enough to do a two-week road trip with our 8-month-old through Alberta and BC in early June. We expected Clearwater to be just a pit stop and the Canadian Bear guesthouse to be just a "bear" necessities cabin, but it turned out to be the highlight of our trip! The guesthouse is a wonderfully cozy log cabin.... More

No, Stewart isn't the human owner of this lovely home. Stewart is the furry type of innkeeper. Don't be fooled by his laid back attitude..he is a great host! He and his people make you feel welcome and very comfortable during your stay. We had one of the rooms downstairs which has a sitting room and mini kitchen. Everything is... More

Ron made us feel very welcome throughout our 2 night stay at the end of May. Stuart, was also a delight! If you are staying in Clearwater to visit Wells Gray, the B&B is located right at the start of the entrance road, which is very handy. It is also not far from the supermarket and the handful of restaurants... More

Lovely cozy luxury cabin with a great view! Full kitchen, bathroom, a bedroom with one double bed and in the attic two singles. August 2014 was warm and sunny. We enjoyed the beatifull Well Gray Provincial Park and in the afternoon we took a dip in the fresh and clear Dutch Lake. We will never forget our stay in Clearwater!

This is an exceptionally good B and B, with excellent accommodation and delightful hosts. Ron and Shauna go out of their way to make you feel at home and they provide lots of information on getting the best out of your trip to the nearby Wells Gray Provincial Park. On our stay, our car developed a slow puncture and Ron... More

Everything about this place was great. The room was very comfortable and clean and the common area downstairs in the basement had all the facilities you would need. Shauna and Ron are the perfect hosts, very friendly and with a real interest and enthusiasm for the local area. We had plenty of advice about where to go on our trip... More

What a lovely stay we had at Canadian Bear and we would have liked to stay longer to explore Wells Gray a bit more. The owners were very welcoming and seemed to enjoy chatting with their guests even setting up the outdoor fire for toasting marshmallows with us . Thank you for introducing us to s'mores . My husband certainly... More
