Surrounded by 600 acres of farm and forested land, and bordered by over a mile of frontage on the Fraser River, Crescent Spur is situated in pristine wilderness. A small settlement, the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway opened a station here in 1915. Some forestry and agriculture workers, as well as a small group of Mennonites, moved here after World War II.
Our founder’s parents, Elisabeth and James, arrived here in the 1950’s, via train (there wasn’t a highway in this area until the early ‘70s).
They established a family farm and raised five children in this setting. In time, their son Mark, and his wife Regina, bought their farm, and embarked on the task of creating a heliski operation.
Today, guests see little evidence of the old farm. In its place sits a private lodge with views of both the Cariboo and Rocky mountain ranges. The lodge undergoes enhancements every year, with changes ranging from lodge additions, to unique furnishings and finishes. Ours is a relaxed, down-to-earth environment, reminiscent of its humble and grounded roots.
Inspired by Canadian wilderness surroundings, our lodge is designed to be warm, friendly, and inviting—so guests feel at ease here. Its cozy 14,000 square feet has been hand-crafted by our founders, over two decades.
Our ranch-style lodge is accented by hand-hewn fir logs and lots of natural local wood, including clear fir and birch. Those with a keen eye will appreciate the craftsmanship and many careful details in the lodge’s construction. Custom built wardrobes with river rock door handles, and solid materials ranging from steel to concrete, lend a memorable personality to the space.
Our 15 guest rooms can house a maximum of 20 guests. These comfortable bedrooms all include ensuite bathrooms. Many rooms are set up for double occupancy, and a number of singles are also available upon request—on a first serve basis.
“Crescent Spur provides an amazing, special, and unique experience. The staff is attentive to your needs and constantly goes above and beyond to make your trip memorable. The great terrain, snow conditions, small groups, and never ending lack of delicious food put this place over the top.”
The lodge’s common spaces are open, yet intimate, allowing guests space to relax, mingle, and socialize. Amenities include a spacious games room, two fireplaces, a lounge, and a full-service bar with an excellent selection of wines and liquor in stock. These spaces lead into our family-style dining area.
For those needing to stay connected, we offer guest computers and free Wi-Fi (available throughout the lodge). Guests have access to a common space for storing equipment and gearing up in the morning—with features like forced-air boot/glove racks that speed drying.
We also have a small retail shop on-site, in which we offer a wide variety of top quality outerwear, powder gloves and mitts, goggles, sunglasses, underlayers, and sundry items.
