What We Do

Cottonwood House today continues to operate much in the same way as it did in the 1870’s, by providing meals and accommodation to travelers on their way to and from Barkerville. In addition to the restaurant, gift shop and accommodation services, we provide tours of the original 1864 Cottonwood House, farm interpretation, horse-drawn wagon rides, a wheel chair accessible trail system and more. We have made it our goal to educate future generations on the importance of this site to British Columbia’s history while preserving all the unique benefits it has to offer.

Cottonwood House is an ideal setting for:

  • Family Reunions
  • Birthday Parties
  • School and Educational Programs
  • Youth Camps
  • Retreats
  • Company Outings
  • Church Socials
  • Weddings
