"And thank you all!! We greatly appreciate your warm hospitality and the pleasant surroundings. This was truly a fun, exciting and relaxing experience. Your tailored services and good food send us away very fat and happy! We will definitely miss you all as well as Billy and Buddy. We will be recommending the Big Creek Lodge to all our friends and coworkers. Thank you again, Sabine, Joe, Steven, Nicky and Nadine for a wonderful and memorable experience for the both of us."

"As we travelled along the dirt road, we wondered where we would end up – then at the end of the trail there was an Oasis. Our stay at Big Creek was excellent. The hospitality, the food and the scenery where all A class. Thank you Nicky for your time and friendship during our 2 days of horse riding. You have all provided us with a relaxed, enjoyable stay. Thank you for having us grace your amazing world and for allowing us to stay in your home and be a part of your life for this short time. Stay well und Happy."

"We have had the most wonderful time here. We had a fantastic Hike with all the dogs. Wonderful hospitality and first class accommodation and food. On our adventure into Nemiah Valley with no luck with accommodation all we could think of was to get back to Big Creek Lodge. Last minute phoned and received wonderful welcome and a great late dinner. Thank you Sabine and Joe."

"Thank you so much for building such a beautiful place and sharing it with all your guests. We wish we had more time to stay longer. I would love to come back and ride on your trails. Maybe next year! I enjoyed walking our dog with your 4 dogs. Hope we did not wake everyone up greeting dogs at 7 this morning. The meals were lovely and the room was wonderful. Thanks again."

"Thank you so much for the restful stay and thanks to Nicky, dogs and horses for the beautiful scenic rides."

General Information: Welcome to the Big Creek Lodge ... a great place to visit, in every season, to search for pure nature and Canadian wilderness and incredible view of forests, water and mountains. We built our Canada Select 4 Star Lodge in the center of the Chilcotins, in the heartland of British Columbia, Western Canada.

The lodge was built from white cedar, which is Canadian tradition. Together with the surrounding wilderness the lodge is something really special for people of every age. All Cabins and most of the lodge's rooms have a balcony or porch. Just a small step thru the big glass doors, which are almost in every room, and you can see more than a million hectares of mountains and wilderness. Here's what you'll get with your stay depending on your chosen package:

  • Four Star Accommodation (full bathroom)
  • Breakfast - Lunch - Dinner (coffee or tea any time over the day)
  • Mountain Biking
  • Fishing (Big Creek, fishing license of B.C. at the Lodge)
  • Gold panning (Big Creek)
  • Hiking, Wildlife and Bird Watching (Humming Bird to huge Golden Eagle)
  • Horseback Riding for Beginners and Advanced Riders (guided/individual trail rides)
  • Ranch Riding/Cowboying
  • Cattle Drive
  • All other activities as in "Active Adventure Vacation" can be ordered at the Lodge

A stay in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of British Columbia will become a vacation you'll never forget.
