Singing Lands is a 240-acre wilderness retreat, ranch and residence. We host vacationing guests, workshops of all varieties, and artist residencies. An hours' drive from the highway, this is beautiful backcountry quiet.
The Kluane is a classic Cariboo cabin with a bit of Steinbeck flare. There is one King-size bed, and a fold-down queen size couch in the living room. The cabin has a fully functioning kitchen with stovetop and small fridge as well as a full bathroom (shower, no tub) and is heated by wood stove. Your view from the yard extends for miles past our garden down Deadman Valley, and many early risers have been found having great, unexpected sleep-ins in the cozy king-size.

Other things to note
Follow either Highways 1 & 5 to Kamloops via Merrit, or Highway 1 to Cache Creek. Either route is roughly the same distance to Singing Lands, and each offers their own unique scenery. The Hwy 1/5 option is quicker in summer, while the windier Hwy 1 takes you through the beautiful Fraser and Thompson River canyons.
From Kamloops, take Highway 1/97 West towards Cache Creek/Prince George.
Approximately 8 kilometers past the Savona Super Save gas station you will cross Deadman Creek. Take the next right on to Deadman-Vidette Road near the top of the hill. If you come to the Big Sky gas station on the highway, you have missed the turn off.
Follow Deadman road all the way up the valley. At ~km 50 you will pass the Vidette Lake Resort and continue on up the steep hill to the plateau. At km 56 you will cross our cattle guard with the Singing Lands sign on the right. 1km after crossing our cattleguard, turn right in to the driveway beside the corral at the second Singing Lands sign.
FROM CACHE CREEK
From Cache Creek, take Highway 1/97 East towards Kamloops.
Approximately 30 kilometers past Cache Creek you will come to the Big Sky gas station. Take the next left on to Deadman-Vidette Rd 1500m past the gas station. If you come to the town of Savona, you have missed the turn off.
Follow Deadman Road all the way up the valley. At ~km 50 you will pass the Vidette Lake Resort and continue on up the steep hill to the plateau. At km 56 you will cross our cattle guard with the Singing Lands sign on the right. 1km after crossing our cattleguard, turn right in to the driveway beside the corral at the second Singing Lands sign.
Heading straight north for 56 km after branching off Hwy # 1 between Savona and Cache Creek, this is a spectacular, scenic drive. The road turns to gravel shortly after leaving the Highway. It follows the Deadman River all the way, until it climbs out of the valley bottom and onto the plateau shortly before reaching Singing Lands Ranch.
Take your time and enjoy the scenery and the wildlife. Deer, moose, bighorn sheep, eagles, and hawks are all common sights along the way. Fantastic colorful rock formations make a dramatic backdrop to the few ranches and cabins that constitute the Deadman Valley population. One site is protected as Castle Rock Provincial Park. 6 lakes are dotted along the upper half of the road: Mowich, Snohoosh, Skookum, Deadman, Outpost and Vidette Lake.
Deadman-Vidette Road is government maintained, open year round to a point about 5 km past our place and is always drivable with a 2-wheel drive vehicle.
