Wells Gray Gateway Guesthouse is designed as a retreat for people who seek a peaceful vacation in a rural setting yet want privacy, convenient access and modern amenities. It is located adjacent to Wells Gray Park, a gigantic wilderness area near Clearwater, two hours drive north of Kamloops in central BC.
The Guesthouse is situated on 120 hectares (300 acres) of private land bordering the Clearwater River, so you have plenty of space to roam.
Wells Gray Gateway Guesthouse is a handcrafted log cabin built in 1998. It is private, accessible by road, and complete with modern amenities. The name "Gateway Guesthouse" was chosen to reflect the proximity of the cabin to the many natural wonders of Wells Gray Park. Hiking, fishing, boating and other outdoor pursuits are all within walking or easy driving distance from the guesthouse.
Detailed directions are supplied with your confirmed reservation. To ensure privacy for each party, the Gateway is never rented on a share basis, so each group of up to 6 persons has exclusive use of the guesthouse plus unrestricted access to 300 acres of private property. There are no staff at the Gateway, except a custodian who does cleaning and maintenance between parties, so you are on your own for the duration of your stay.
LOCATION: Wells Gray Gateway Guesthouse is a 6 hour drive from Vancouver via the Coquihalla and Yellowhead Highways or a 4 hour drive from Jasper via the Yellowhead Highway. The nearest airport is Kamloops, 150 km south, and rental cars are available there.
$15 cleaning fee per stay (not per night): dogs or cats (1-2), but most suitable for dogs, as this is a wilderness area.
