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 space

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.

Please read the description under Neighbourhood for the full picture of where we are!

Other things to note

Directions:

FROM VANCOUVER
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
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.

DEADMAN VALLEY
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.

We were made very welcome and greeted upon arrival. It was an excellent experience and the scenery was fantastic. It took us just over an hour to drive in and we took a couple of stops where we saw beavers, osprey and a bear from a distance. We took everything in with us in terms of food and drink which worked well. There are some fascinating things to look at whilst you are there including deadmans falls, a short walk away, the tree house view over the valley. We were entertained by a few young ducks who spent the day catching grass hoppers, a couple of chickens, horses etc. The cabin we had had a shower, basic kitchen, fridge just a few yards away, pull out bed in the lounge. Garden chairs outside for enjoying the sunshine.

Erin was great, she met us en route with fresh piglet family members and made sure we settled in right away. We enjoyed steaming hot wood stove tubs at night, under the generously starry sky. Erin and Will told us how to get to the most amazing waterfall, where we read books in a sunbeam lying in the mist of the falls. We had an exciting night walk where the family horses met us, and came back to enjoy another hot soak. Before we checked out, we finally found the illustrious tree house perched on the edge of a canyon; it was scary but terribly enjoyable. All in all we spotted 12 different animals and came back with lots of stories. Thanks guys!

Our stay at Singing Lands was magical! It is a beautiful destination with a super cosy, comfortable cabin. Erin and Will are wonderful hosts who made our stay such a pleasure - they truly went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. The landscape is a perfect wilderness getaway and absolutely worth the trek up. We can't wait to go back.

Erin and Will were wonderful hosts- from a big slice of home made pie to a wood fired hot tub all ready for us! Their land is truly beautiful- horses roam around free and there are stands of aspen all around. The cabin is rustic but offered all that we needed, the only thing it does not have is a fridge, which is on the outside porch of the main house, about 40' away. The gas stove worked great, and the wood stove kept the cabin nice and toasty. Erin and her family are sweet and genuine people who worked really hard to make sure that our time away was as peaceful and special as possible- not too hard in such a lovely corner of the world!

We weren't able to meet Erin but we did meet Ali and her family. They were very friendly and extremely nice. The property is as described and there is plenty of nature to explore and have fun with. My 7 yr old and I had a wonderful time. We most certainly would like to visit Singing Lands again! It's a great escape from the city.

Singling Lands was all I expected and more. Words like magical are overused--but this place IS magical. Among other things, we were greeted by a rainbow on our first evening. The quiet is profound and deep, the wood stove warm and welcoming, the king size bed heavenly. My partner and I found it easy to hike the many paths around the land. And I especially connected with the horses there. Erin and her husband Will were simply wonderful: easy going, helpful, and caring. They made my birthday weekend a delight.
