Staying in a yurt is a unique experience whether it’s guests' first time glamping or they are a seasoned pro. Yurts provide an airy and bright feeling, usually constructed of heavy canvas covering a sturdy lattice frame creating a circular tent (24' diagonal). All the yurts on this property are insulated and have a steeped roof culminating in a skylight dome. They are equipped with a wood stove, cozy futon couch, coffee table dining area and two bunk beds with a double on the bottom and single on top and can accommodate up to 4 people. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, cutlery and pots and pans, as well as a sink with hot and cold running water. A propane refrigerator, stove and lighting ensure guests have all the comforts of home. An outdoor shower with hot water and an outhouse complete the 'yurt' experience. They are completely gas and gravity run, so this obviously means no electricity.

Fly-fishing is the activity of choice at this site and there’s ample opportunity to do so in different locations, thanks to the 12 lakes the ranch boasts throughout the property.
Chironomids, shrimp, leeches, damsels, and dragonflies are the majority of the staple food source in all of these lakes. Mayflies, traveling sedge, water boatman, and flying ants can also hatch or occur at anytime on any of these lakes. Weather and surface temperature play a big roll in determining when these events may take place. The warmer summer months are a great time to locate larger fish in the deeper waters using leeches, shrimp and dragonflies. The fall fishery can be fast and furious as mature rainbow trout are aware that the dropping lake temperatures means the ice-on phase will be returning. Site fishing in extremely shallow waters can be an exciting addition to the fall.
On the south end of the ranch, closest to Merritt BC, lie Minnie Lake, Stoney Lake and Crater lake just to name a few. Looking north along the Douglas Lake Road, Big & Little Sabin Lakes, Harry's Dam, Pike's Lake, Wasley Lake and Salmon Lake, are some more of the popular destinations on that end. Each lake has its own special characteristics, depths, structure, fish habits, and size. All of the lakes located on the ranch are managed as fly-fishing only fisheries.
