    On the shores of spectacular Big Bar Lake, this majestic log home provides the full scope of lakeside living. With 185 feet of lakefront, two small docks, and plentiful privacy, this acreage provides access to an uncrowded and pristine lake.

    The deck leading into this home, draws your attention to the depth of lake colours, ranging from emerald to turquoise and deep blue. Double glass doors give way to a magnificent, spacious interior—designed to capture the surrounding beauty and tranquility.

    The living and dining room, and kitchen, all open concept, are bathed in light with windows sweeping from the main floor up through the second story. Crafted from natural stones, the fireplace reaches from the walk out basement through the main floor, transitioning to copper before reaching the height of the home.

    Quality ‘antique’ style appliances, and granite countertops, along with an island provide an area where cooking and sharing company go hand in hand. Dinner or a barbeque overlooking the view, from inside or on the deck are a pleasure to enjoy with friends and family. Two bathrooms on this main level include a three-piece and a two-piece with a roughed in shower.

    The upper-level primary bedroom is a peaceful sanctuary leading from the bedroom and to a private outdoor balcony through double glass doors. Facing the lake, the resting and office/den area provide uninterrupted lake views. This level includes a four-piece spacious en-suite bathroom.

    The walkout basement has plenty of area for the imagination to develop additional living areas. A bedroom is built and bathroom roughed in. The large pantry is ideal for storage and preserves. Double glass doors exit out towards the lake onto a concrete patio.

    With a double roll up garage door, the detached garage is not only ideal for car storage, but a great location to work on projects and crafts. An additional storage shed can store the kayaks, canoes and lake necessities!

    Area Data

    Big Bar Lake, 39 km northwest of Clinton, lies just east of the northern Marble Mountain Range. At 700 m elevation, the lake perimeter is approximately 5,100 m with a maximum depth of 10 m. Located in the rolling plains of southern Cariboo, the range provides a spectacular mountainous backdrop. The lake has a speed restriction of 10 km/h with no towing permitted, providing a peaceful setting. Big Bar Lake is known for fishing and beautiful turquoise shoals.

    The Village of Clinton is the closest township with a population of 640. This small friendly community is in one of the most pristine natural environments, while still being close and accessible to larger centres. Clinton is located on Highway 97, midway between Vancouver and Prince George. There is a unique western atmosphere, stunning scenery, and an abundance of recreational opportunities. The community provides amenities including education from kindergarten through post-secondary, a fire department, ambulance service and an RCMP detachment. Kamloops International Airport is a mere 123 km from Clinton.

    Clinton and surrounding area’s economics are based around forestry, ranching and tourism. Multiple historic ranches continue to produce pasture raised meats, ‘wild west’ experiences and an opportunity to get away from what may be busy city life.

    Dry, warm summers and cold winters with moderate snowfall influence plant and wildlife species adaptation in this area. Temperature variations have developed plant and animal life unique to the area. Grasses grow quickly in spring while seeds lie dormant during the summer. Trees typically, lodgepole pine, aspen and spruce, are deep-rooted to access the Big Bar Lake water.

    Deer is plentiful to this grazing land while coyotes, hawks and eagles prey on grassland field mice and voles. Squirrels are plentiful, feeding on abundant pine and spruce cones. Black bear, moose, lynx, and cougar are some of the large mammals found at Big Bar Lake and surrounding areas. Snowshoe hares, chipmunks, marmots, and an active beaver population also flourish here.

    Ducks Unlimited built a water control structure at the end of the lake’s marsh in 1988 to help encourage waterfowl nesting. This has provided excellent birdwatching and photographic opportunities.


    The area in its entirety is a vast playground for the outdoor enthusiast. Provincial Parks, Forest Recreation Sites, and the wilderness backcountry are a remarkable showcase. Recreational opportunities from camping, boating, boating, swimming, caving, wilderness exploration and fishing—only scratch the surface of outdoor activities. The following is a sampling of nearby parks.

    Big Bar Lake Provincial Park, on the western shores of the lake is on the southern edge of the Fraser Plateau. The park is easily accessible and provides a range of recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Some of the major recreational opportunities available in the park include day-use picnicking, camping, boating, canoeing and kayaking, swimming, wildlife viewing, hiking, and fishing. Abundant rainbow trout typically reward the angler. Nearby guest ranches offer horseback adventures into the open range that lies north of the lake.

    Marble Range Provincial Park is so named because of its unusual limestone topography. These mountains feature caves, sinkholes and disappearing streams, as well as cliffs, chasms, and crenellated ridges. The park protects populations of bighorn sheep and mule deer. There are some rough trails, popular with local hikers, hunters, and horseback riders.

    Chasm Provincial Park protects the unique river canyon of the Chasm Creek Valley and part of the Bonaparte River Valley. In 1995 the park was enlarged from 141 hectares to 3,067 hectares to protect more of the area’s colourful geological formations and ponderosa pine forests. The unique features of Chasm Provincial Park offer hiking opportunities and spectacular backdrops for the avid photographer.


    The Village of Clinton and its surrounding area have a rich history full of stories. Settlement of the community began in the mid-1800s with the discovery of gold and the development of the Cariboo wagon roads. The First Nations people who inhabited the land long before western settlement are known as the Secwepemc.

    During the Cariboo Gold Rush, Clinton was a busy junction on the wagon road to the goldfields of Barkerville. The location of the settlement made it an ideal resting place for weary travelers and miners. Once “Gold Fever” subsided, the ranching industry became a primary source of income.

    In the early 1950s forestry flourished and at one time, over 20 mills operated in the area until consolidation in the 1970s, known today as Chasm Sawmills, a Division of West Fraser Mills.
