Overview

About the property

We can host up to four people on our beautiful forest paradise!

Welcome to Glengrove Guesthouse!

There are two guest rooms: one has a a queen bed and the other one has two single beds, so we can accommodate a total of four guests. Book one room or both! If you're looking for a longer stay or are in the area for a course, just contact us with an enquiry and we'll get you a lower rate.

The rooms and large guest bathroom are upstairs. The bathroom is for the exclusive use of guests, only shared between the rooms if both are booked. The kitchen and living room are on the main floor. Our bedroom and private bathroom are also located on the main floor.

We have a spacious kitchen for your shared use with us, with fridge/freezer, ceramic top stove, microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. Fully equipped with cookware and dishes. Breakfast available for $5 per person with advance notice (choose two: toast, bagel, fruit, cereal and milk, yogurt + tea/coffee/juice).

The cozy living room with a wood stove has board games and a large TV with basic channels. There is also free wireless internet throughout the house.

The patio is great for watching sunsets, and there is a large deck with lots of seating overlooking a pasture with a view of the forested mountains. We also have a BBQ and fire pit for cookouts!

We are a non-smoking home. We have one medium (50lb) terrier dog (low allergy risk) and a couple horses.

Glengrove is an acreage subdivision located 7km off of Highway 5, 10 minutes southeast from the town of Barriere (1200 people), and 45 minutes north of the city of Kamloops, British Columbia (85,000 people). Glengrove Road is not a through road, so there is only local traffic and the neighbourhood is very quiet.

In Barriere, you will find all essential services including groceries, a drugstore with pharmacist, a doctor’s office with a small emergency department, a fire station, a library, a post office, a bank, a few restaurants, and many small shops. We have several parks, a golf course, a curling rink, ball fields, tennis courts, and impressive rodeo grounds with a new indoor arena Agriplex.

Please note that no public transit is available other than Greyhound bus service to Barriere, which arrives at 1:00am from Kamloops. For backpackers without a car or air travellers on Westjet or Air Canada, we may be able to pick you up in Kamloops for a fee. Highway 5 continues north through to Clearwater, Blue River, Vavenby, and then Jasper, Alberta to the east. We are halfway between Vancouver and Jasper — it is four hours driving time to either destination, so we are a perfect stopover point.

Several beautiful lakes are nearby (as close as 10 minutes away), all great for swimming, fishing, and kayaking. Forest Lake, Johnson Lake (nicknamed “The Caribbean of the North” due to its incredible clarity and blue colour), Adams Lake, and East and North Barriere Lake are the most popular to visit. 45 minutes to the north is Wells Grey Provincial Park, renowned for its extensive hiking trail and numerous waterfalls, including the 141m Helmcken Falls. If you want to go whitewater rafting, we’ve had great experiences on the river with both Interior Whitewater Expeditions in Clearwater and Adams River Rafting near Scotch Creek, and would highly recommend them.

Barriere is popular for the North Thompson Fall Fair on Labour Day weekend every year, as well as the Provincial Winter Fair, the Celebration of Rural Living, and 4H and horse shows. For those seeking a trail ride on a guest ranch, Tod Mountain Ranch, about 30 minutes away, is an excellent choice. If mountain biking is your thing, the Kamloops area has several options. Chinook Cove is a 9 hole, championship length golf course a few minutes north of Barriere.

In the winter, Sun Peaks Resort is less than an hour away via a back road, and offers downhill skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. You can ski-doo right off of our property, as well as in many surrounding areas. There are also local cross-country ski trails.
