Clearwater Springs Ranch
Trip Advisor's Travellers' Choice Best of the Best Award

Exceptional Wilderness Lodging

Wells Gray Park, B.C.
3 Rooms, 1 Cabin
In-Home Meals

Set In Some of  British Columbia’s Most Breathtaking Wilderness

Located at the main entrance of Wells Gray Provincial Park, just a few minutes’ drive from the most visited waterfalls in BC, Dawson & Helmcken Falls.

Due to its remoteness; quietness & tranquillity are some of the many features the ranch offers. Sit on your balcony, breathe in the fresh air and listen to the sound of silence – only interrupted by the songs of the birds and the distant tumbling of the waterfall across the valley.

The traditional handcrafted log home was constructed in 2009 and has accommodated thousands of guests over the years until today. After the first opening season, we at Clearwater Springs Ranch were honored to receive the “Certificate of Excellence” award from Tripadvisor, and continue to receive the same each successive year until today. Even in 2020, Clearwater Springs Ranch was rewarded with Tripadvisor’s “Travelers Choice Best of the Best”; which is based on excellent reviews from travelers, and we are ranked in the top 1% of properties worldwide.

In-House Meal Service

Lodge Guests ONly
Daily Seasonal Breakfast

Lodge guests are offered a healthy, handmade country breakfast each morning. Breakfast is different every day and varies with the season and availability. Your choice of fresh brewed organic coffee, tea or hot chocolate &  juices is included.

Coffee, Tea, Water, & Assorted Beverages

To ensure complete silence and rest during the night for all our guests, none of our rooms are equipped with a fridge and tea/coffee amenities. For guests’ convenience these amenities are available in the dining area.

Complimentary tea/coffee & sweets are available daily in the afternoon from 4-6pm.

Dinner Upon Request 

Dinners are available on request if booked minimum 1 week in advance. This is a 3-course meal which is served daily at 6:30pm. We offer this optional service because of our remote location.

Price per dinner is $45.00/p (not including applicable taxes).

Dietary Needs

We will do our utmost effort in our capacity to accomodate guests’ dietary needs. The best way to assure this gets taken care of properly is to give us notice at least one week prior to your arrival. Because this requires more preparation, work and more costly ingredients, this extra service may result in an additional charge. Due to the fact that there’s only one supermarket in Clearwater and the potential lack of ingredients, we are unfortunately not able to accommodate people who are Vegan.
