The SpaceWelcome to Glengrove Guesthouse! Our price for the first night is $75, with subsequent nights priced at $70. AirBNB does not have a way to offer this discount, so if you would like to stay more than one night, please send a message first and we can send you a special offer with an adjusted lower price!
There are two guest rooms, each with two single beds, so we can accommodate a total of four guests (each room has a separate listing here on AirBNB). The rooms and large shared guest bathroom are upstairs, and the kitchen and living room are on the main floor. Our bedroom and private bathroom are also located on the main floor. Guest AccessWe have a spacious kitchen for your shared use with us and other guests, 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, a large TV with basic channels, and a stack of DVDs. There is also free wireless internet throughout the house, though we do have limited data so ask our guests not to use Netflix / other video streaming services, or download large files without asking first.
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! Interaction with GuestsI am self-employed, so am home most of the time, but am usually working in my office or outside. Chris works in Kamloops. We are friendly and happy to advise on activities in the area, but very respectful of privacy and space -- both social butterflies and quiet types are welcome here! The NeighborhoodGlengrove is an acreage subdivision located 12 minutes from the town of Barriere (1200 people). We are in a rural, forested area with no services within walking distance. The town has all essential services, so before coming up to the house, you may like to buy groceries at AG Foods (located on Barriere Town Road) or eat out at Sam's Pizza & Ribs, Armour Mountain Restaurant, A&W, or Subway (all located on the highway that goes through town). If you purchase groceries, you are welcome to cook at the house.
In Barriere, you will also find a drugstore with pharmacist, a doctor’s office with a small emergency department, a library, a post office, a bank, mechanic and auto parts, and several small shops. We have a few parks, a golf course, a curling rink, ball fields, tennis courts, and impressive rodeo grounds with a new indoor arena Agriplex.
We are 45 minutes north of the city of Kamloops (85,000 people) if you need shopping or services beyond what our small town offers. Getting AroundNo public transit is available. The acreage is located 7km off of Highway 5, and 10km from the town of Barriere. Other Things to NoteWe have a friendly male medium sized dog who is hypoallergenic (he has hair, not fur, which reduces or eliminates allergic reactions). We welcome other friendly dogs, as we have a large fenced yard. Our pet fee is $10/day/pet to cover the extra cleaning required.
Several beautiful lakes are nearby (as close as 10 minutes away), all great for swimming, fishing, and kayaking. Forest Lake, Johnson Lake, East Barriere Lake, and North Barriere Lake are the most popular.
Amazing hiking is right out the back door, and on several trail networks in the area. We are 45 minutes from Clearwater, the gateway to Wells Grey Provincial Park, home of stunning tall waterfalls, a great place to spot a bear along the road, and endless hiking!
Our property backs onto crown land, so wildlife comes right through our yard... deer, rabbits, and many birds, including hummingbirds in the summer.
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.
In the winter, Sun Peaks ski resort is less than an hour away via a back road, there is ski-dooing right off the property, and there are cross-country ski trails in the area.
