    By Appointment Only

    This spectacular lakefront equestrian estate lies along the shores of beautiful Lac La Hache. Immaculately planned and constructed, this offering provides a world-class property for family, friends, and horses to luxuriate at. With iconic log home construction, the primary residence, two additional homes, and two large cabins are all custom designed and constructed with high-quality craftsmanship.

    The primary residence has a commanding presence overlooking the lake with southern views of the surrounding Cariboo Region. With vaulted ceilings and windows, the outdoor beauty pours into the heart of the home. A stately stacked stone fireplace reaches from the living room to the second-level loft. Spilling out from the living room, an expansive wraparound deck facing the close lakeshore provides every opportunity to appreciate views of stately old growth fir trees and resident eagles and the flora and fauna of this lake setting on the ranch.

    The second home also provides sweeping vistas of the lakeshore and the Cariboo’s finest settings. Windows rise to the ceiling, allowing its southern exposure and the sunlight to wash throughout the home.

    The third home/studio presents the same lakeshore view providing an inviting residence for staff and guests.

    The 2 custom log cabins offer dramatic views of the lake and pastures with those iconic sunset views from the generous SW facing decks.

    Eight serviced RV sites provide for additional accommodations and parking for motorhomes and horse trailers.

    Equestrian comfort is first and foremost. With a state-of-the-art environment, barns, indoor and outdoor riding rings and arenas, large stalls and shelters, a hot walker building, and generous pastures, horses are well cared for. And, at the beginning or end of the day, pampered with a top-class infrared massage system and, should it be required, a spacious and well-supported veterinarian room. Most of the equestrian buildings are heated by a large wood fired boiler.

    Complimenting the accommodations are a private boat launch and a manufactured dock system for boat moorage. Lac La Hache offers water sports activities such as swimming, boating, and world class fishing.

    A heated three-car garage adjacent to the main house and two shops provide equipment storage and heated workspaces.

    A detailed description of all buildings can be found below under improvements.

    The dual RR1 and C2-19 zoning permit uses for this property in addition to an equestrian facility. Some potential uses are listed, but not limited to the following:

    • Agri-tourism
    • Guest ranch
    • Trail riding
    • Concession stands, confectionary shop, gift shop or curio shop
    • Agricultural operations
    • Farm retail sales
    • Animal hospital and kennel

    Your vision can offer numerous and several complementary uses. This property and the facilities are excellent for breeding, training, education, competition, veterinary care, equestrian and owner retreat—and wherever your imagination takes you.

    Area Data

    The community of Lac La Hache is located within the Southern British Columbia Cariboo Region which is perched between the eastern Cariboo Mountains, reaching across the Fraser River plateau to the Coastal Mountains. This beautiful lake sprawls 19 kilometres along Highway 97 and is often referred to as the ‘Longest Town in the Cariboo.’ The region holds a strong history of ranching and agriculture, evidenced by farms, ranches, restaurants, and homes scattered along this shoreline.

    Expansive rivers, the Fraser, Chilcotin, Chilko, Quesnel, Cariboo, and Horsefly network throughout this region provide vital supply to this region, critical for wildlife and habitat. Subsequently, there is access to lakes and miles of wilderness in this vast region inhabited by, just to mention a few, deer, moose, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, black bears, cougars, lynxes, bobcats, wolves, and coyotes.

    Lac La Hache is easily accessed by road and air. 100 Mile House, a mere 20 kilometres south of Lac La Hache, is a busy service center for the South Cariboo. With a solid commercial and service-based economy with modern healthcare this community supports a large rural area population. The hub city of northern BC, Prince George, is serviced with an international airport—a three-hour drive from the Estate. The Fraser Valley is easily accessed within a 4-hour drive.


    Gently rolling hills surround the area, covered with old growth forest and grassland. The gravelly low bank shoreline is interspersed with majestic Douglas fir and Juniper trees with natural grasses and pebble and sandy beaches to enjoy.


    Lac La Hache, with its convenient accessibility, attracts anglers, hunters, and sports enthusiasts.

    Primarily known for kokanee, lake, and rainbow trout, the lake also holds brook, burbot, and char, with claims of 30-pound lake trout being landed. Ice fishing is a favorite pastime for those up to the winter temperatures. If fly fishing is a passion, Lac La Hache, is a prime destination.

    This boat-friendly lake is a destination for swimmers, paddlers, water skiers, and any sports fun behind a boat.

    Family-friendly Mt Timothy Recreational Resort, about 20 kilometres to the north, offers impressive snow conditions, virtually no lineups, and diverse terrain. A triple chair, T-Bar, and two magic carpet lifts provide access for all skill levels. Whether skiing or boarding on the hill, riding your sled on the Gold Rush trail system up to the lodge, or on the tubing hill, this resort delivers.

    The Gold Rush Snowmobile Trail provides an epic journey along a legally established trail from 70 Mile House past Lac La Hache to Horsefly. The network has an unofficial origin in Clinton, linking 100 Mile House through Horsefly to Likely and beyond. Sledders stop on the ride to take in some rest and food at Timothy Mountain, one of the sites along the ride.

    100 Mile House holds a gem for cross-country skiers. Groomed Nordic classic and skating groomed trails span 45 km and include a lighted night trail, lodge, and cabins to visit along the way. It’s no wonder 100 Mile House hosts the annual Cariboo Cross-Country Marathon, drawing an international field of between 700 and 1,000 participants.

    Just south of the lake, 108 Mile Ranch provides a picturesque 18-hole golf course overlooking rolling hills and two lakes.

    Foodies love its South Cariboo Garlic Festival, held in late August.


    When a French-Canadian fur trader dropped his axe into a remote Cariboo Lake while ice fishing, he most likely never would have suspected that he was making history. The name Lac La Hache translated means” Lake of the Axe” and has remained the name to represent this beautiful lakeshore.

    This area is rich in tales of fur traders, gold seekers, and cattle ranchers. By the 1860s, gold fever was running high, as miners searched for the jackpot first near Likely, and later at Barkerville. With teams of horses, mules, and oxen, the fortune-seekers traveled north along the Cariboo Wagon Road (Gold Rush Trail), skirting the eastern shores of Lac La Hache.
