Kayanara Guest Ranch & Resort is one of the premier guest ranches in all of British Columbia. With countless 5-star reviews and repeat guests each year, this oasis is a great opportunity for an experienced resort owner or someone looking for a new challenge. The owners of Kayanara, over the past 10 years, meticulously planned and designed the guest ranch to be a life changing experience for guests but also a easy to run turnkey operation for a new owner.
The property itself is a work of art and offers 220 acres along the winding Eagle Creek. Both picturesque and functional from an activity/accommodation perspective, it truly is a rare property and a unique offering. To the north, bordering the property, is thousands of acres of Crown land with intertwining trails and old forestry roads providing the perfect network for long horseback rides, hikes, hunting, ATV and snowmobile trips. In addition, this property falls within the Interlakes Region which offers world class fishing and Kayanara, sits only a minute’s walk from Canim Lake which is one of the largest and most scenic lakes in the Cariboo. Numerous surrounding lakes also offer a varying degree of fishing difficulty making the region suitable for all levels of experience.
The operations, much like the property itself, is world class. The current owners run a well-oiled machine and have thought of everything.
