“A fantastic get-away”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

We stayed for three nights to celebrate a milestone birthday and had a very memorable experience. Ria and Hennie were the perfect hosts ... their timing is so natural by offering amazing good service without being intrusive. They are true professionals who made us feel very welcome and "at home"!

We loved the historic lodge with its history recorded in photo albums and in a library of period books. A perfect escape from a busy modern world; refreshing to have no TV or internet or cell phones to intrude on a get-away. The rooms were wonderful, clean and quiet; a treat in every way.

Ria is an excellent chef ... we so much enjoyed her delicious cooking and food presentation ... and the wonderful bagged lunches for our day trips (in beautiful colourful bags :-) . The birthday cake was a delight!

Thank you Ria and Hennie, for wonderful conversations and wonderful memories of our stay with you. We will definitely visit again. Randy & Norma

Came back to the lodge for the third time in August 2013. Ria was very helpful in making suggestions for local activities for 3 days in the area. We explored the beautiful Farwell canyon, hiked all over the Sheep Ranges provincial park - and came back every night for a gourmet dinner made from fresh local ingredients. Pretty much every room on the south side of the lodge has a "million dollar view" of the chilcoltin grasslands stretching toward the chilcoltin river to the south. The lodge is interesting in its own right, with a history stretching back more than a hundred years to the time it was a stage coach stop.

Room Tip: south facing every time for the incredible view

I was pleasantly surprised to come across this beautiful lodge (& stunning setting) on the way to Bella Coola. Everything was spotless and the antique furnishings were charming. The owner treated us royally and was very helpful with recommendations of places to see on our way. We had marvellous breakfasts which left us feeling well satisfied every morning. I hardily recommend Chicoltin Lodge if not for the charming comfortable bedrooms but for the stunning sunsets we saw every night.

Room Tip: There was no fitness center or swimming pool as rated above. I was unable to change it on the compu...

We chose the B&B because of the historical significance and location. Ria is the perfect hostess and a fabulous cook. She provided information about the area and cooked a fabulous baked salmon dinner for us. Would recommend this B&B to anyone

Room Tip: Any room is great

We had chooses the Chilcotin Lodge because it was located just in the middle of our trip from Penticton to Bella Coola.
Ria the owner and hostess welcomed us very friendly and at night she cooked a lovely and delicious dinner for us.
Pure ingredients and with the products of the region. For dessert we had the best cheese cake ever!

The room was delightful, cozy decorated, very clean and you feel the buildings history in every room of the lodge.
Encouraged by Ria, we made a trip to the Farwell Canyon which was worth every minute.
A truly welcoming stay and recommended if you visit the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, a land without limits.
Ria thank you for your "gastvrijheid", a Dutch word for hospitality.
We will promote and recommend the lodge in Vancouver!

We booked for the location and highly recommend it for the thoughtful hospitality, lovely and comfortable rooms, good library and the best food you can find. The lodge is perched near the crest of a gentle grasslands hill, with a gracious view of the farm and ranch lands to the south. It is so quiet you can hear the grass sing in the breeze. The heritage building has been exquisitely preserved, with timbers scrubbed and polished. Because it is a century old rooms are smaller than a Holiday Inn, and bathrooms are shared. The food is the huge surprise; it is difficult to find food this good in most cities, finding it in the middle of nowhere when you have the leisure to enjoy it is a bonus worth more than I can say. The meals are not cheap, but not overpriced. All in, this was the best find of a two week journey.

Chilcotin Lodge was a delight. We loved its history and
the history of the whole area. We had a gourmet dinner and great
breakfast. The attention to detail by the hosts was admirable and this
old building (1940s) is lovingly maintained. It is a great gateway
to the grasslands, which were stunning. We happened to be the only
guests there, which may have accounted for the peace and quiet.
