Barkerville, Cariboo, British Columbia
Welcome to Wells. Thanks for choosing to stay in our unique guesthouse centrally located in Wells.  Our quaint 1930's guesthouse overlooks the main street of Wells, beautiful Slide Mountain and the Cornish Mountain meadows. It is across the street from The Bear's Paw Cafe, (voted the Best Cafe in Northern BC), and The Frog On The Bog Gifts and Coffee. We're only 8 km from Barkerville Historic Park and 30 Km from the Bowron Lakes.

The 3 bedroom and two bath unit is subdividable to suit your exact accomodation requirements.  Our 1930's decor reflects the culture of the working class gold miners of the 1930's and 40's who once made Wells the largest city in BC, north of Vancouver. However, it includes the amenities of the modern world, including a soaker tub, wifi, modern appliances and comfortable bedding.
