This is a once in a life-time opportunity to ranch off-grid in the rugged and beautiful West Chilcotin, famed for it’s cattle ranching history and unspoiled wilderness and yet easily accessible from Anahim Lake on the Dean River Road.
Ranch beside the breathtaking Itcha & Ilgachuz Mountains and along the historic Dean River on 1428 acres of pristine land, of which 1200 acres are arable, great for hay production and the remainder rich grazing pasture, interspersed with plenty of crown woodland.

THE LOCATION:


The ranch is situated 40km northwest of Anahim Lake on the Dean River Road, a small and welcoming community with a rich First Nations heritage and it’s very own annual rodeo/stampede in the summer.

Schools, grocery stores, multi purpose shops, and an airport with direct flights to Vancouver serve the community.

Highway 20, a great and scenic drive crossing the Chilcotin Plateau and Coast Mountains connects Anahim Lake with the BC interior, only 360km east for Williams Lake and 135km west to Bella Coola, the gateway to the Great Bear Rainforest and the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast.

There is a plethora of outdoor activities to pursue, with the Dean River being one of the top ten destinations for fly-fishing in the world, or the Chilko which is North America’s most challenging river for white water kayaking.
Canoeing, hiking, horse trail-riding, hunting, ATV-riding, off roading, or just watching wildlife in it’s natural habitat, the opportunities to experience this unspoiled wild country are endless, regardless of the season or the weather.
Winter in the Chilcotin is amazing for cross country and back country skiing, again you will find some of the best backcountry skiing in the world in your own backyard, and excellent snowmobiling trails in the nearby Rainbow Mountains in Tweedsmuir Provincial Park.
