  • Description


    We bought the Resort in 1990 as new immigrants, coming with our Family from Stuttgart - Germany. Our Girls - Barbara, Martina, and Franziska are grown up and have children on their own. Two of them live "nearby" in Prince George and Martina is living in Brisbane, Australia. The Resort is a beautiful piece of land right on Canim Lake.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We usually have quite interesting travelers from all over to meet. We also have a good relationship with our native community. It is a different lifestyle here in the Cariboo and Nature is playing a big role in our life. We live here for 29 years and we stil love it.

  • Help


    We operate this resort, a small tourist place on beautiful Canim Lake. We have Campsites and Cabins. We sometimes cook for our guests in the lodge and when the weather is ok we cook outside on the barbecue or in our wood fired pizza oven. Our Volunteer Helpers are just a part of the team and help where ever we need them. There is lots of time to go swimming, kayaking canoeing etc. Part of duties could be feeding social media with photos etc. or cutting lawn, helping to get fire wood or getting our boats ready.
