My wife and recently had the great fortune to start our Chilcotin vacation at the Chilcotin Lodge. Ria's warm hospitality, great cooking and knowledge of the area made this an ideal location as our exploration base. This part of BC has a history that is seldom told but is fascinating including the Gang Ranch, Farwell Canyon, the bighorn and wild horse sheep preserves and, of course, the muddy Fraser and glacial clear Chilcotin Rivers that swirl and mix together near this area. Early Canadian history and current events are teaming in this area but not always front and center on the evening news until recently with some interesting Federal Court rulings. The lodge itself was warm, quaint and cozy made even moreso by Ria's attention to detail, including a cozy after-dinner tea serving in the parlor near a well stoked log fireplace. It is THE place to stay and a place worth returning to again and again.
