Bordered on 2 sides by crown land, this self-sufficient escape is set up with water, power, gardens, and a lovely home. 100km up the Fraser River from Lillooet, this is one of fewer than a dozen residences along 20km-long Big Bar Ferry Road. Whether your new homestead, hobby farm, hunting cabin, vacation home, vineyard, or small scale farm, this lovely spot is a warm, clean, idyllic escape.

The Area
48.5km (on a maintained, gravel road) West of Clinton, and 10 minutes from the Fraser River benchlands and the Big Bar reaction ferry.
2-3 hours to 100 Mile House, Williams Lake or Kamloops. 5.5 hours to Vancouver.
