Location: 20 km north of Blue River, BC and about 1/2 km east of HWY 5 you will find this quaint, rustic retreat. It is located by a river and at the base of multiple trails for ski-dooing or quadding. There is a railway track close by so be aware of the sound of trains throughout the night.
Cabin: My husband and I stayed in the Hunter's Cabin and absolutely LOVED the experience. It is a rustic one room cabin with a double bed, table and two chairs, 3 burner stove, coffee maker, sink, and bar fridge. My great uncle was a guide for hunters and had a similar 'cabin' that he used when hunting and trapping. If you are looking for fluffy pillows and a chocolate on the pillow, this is not a place for you. This cabin is 'rustic' but quaint. Those with an adventurous spirit will appreciate these accommodations. And yes... there is a trek to the outdoor toilet. If you want a less rugged cabin, there are other options available with in-cabin washrooms.
Reception: Micky was very warm and inviting upon our arrival. Not only was her welcome appreciated but the friendly dogs, cat and free range chickens added to the hominess of the 'wilderness retreat'.
Parking: The parking is free for all guests.
Internet: There is free wifi for guests to the property.
Overall: My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our night at the "Bone Creek Wilderness Retreat". We 'gave blood' unwillingly to the copious amounts of mosquitos but that was par for the course for this type of rustic location. If you are up for the adventure, check out this unique experience in the mountains.
