THE HIGHEST OFF-GRID

WILDERNESS LODGE IN CANADA - 6,800ft.

IN  1934    

At the age of 19, a locally known pioneer named Herb Clark (of Keremeos) fell in love with the Cathedrals.

 

Long before the area was a park, he went to work in the mines for $3 a day – hoping to save enough to purchase his dream. Finally, in 1934, with $500 saved, he bought two parcels of land from the BC government – 40 acres located on Quiniscoe Lake and 40 acres between Glacier and Pyramid Lakes.

 

Wanting to share his piece of paradise with the public, he started a horseback guiding service, and constructed two guest cabins on Quiniscoe Lake.

The Lodge

Built in 1992, Tom’s Cabin is our newest cabin. It is a self-contained log building.

 

The upstairs features four bedrooms: one with a king bed, one with a queen bed and two with twin beds. The main floor includes a living room, dining room and large, full size kitchen with hot and cold water.
