Quesnel Accommodations

Quesnel, British Columbia, Canada boasts the perfect combination of rural charm and quiet city sophistication. In a quiet valley, surrounded by beautiful green mountains and lush forests, is the picturesque community of Quesnel. Flower displays on streets and bridges add a picturesque charm to this modern thriving city.

Located at the confluence of the Fraser and Quesnel Rivers, Quesnel is the commercial centre of the North Cariboo. Once the last stop on the Fraser River for the Gold Rush trail, Quesnel became a boomtown in the late 1800s, with the discovery of gold in the area, and was the service centre for gold prospectors stocking up with supplies before heading east for gold towns such as William's Creek and Barkerville, the centre of the Great Cariboo Gold Rush.

Reminders of a colourful past survive. Visitors will enjoy stopping at the original Hudson Bay Store (a log structure built in 1859). Across the street is a Cornish Water Wheel and boilers and iron parts from the first Fraser River riverboat to travel to the city. Then stroll the old Fraser River Bridge to west Quesnel. Built in 1928 the old bridge now serves foot traffic only. Continue through Riverfront Park and the walking trail that winds past historic points of interest and along the banks of the Quesnel River. Quesnel's Riverfront Trail is a real jewel! Run, walk, jog or bike on the scenic and peaceful trail that runs along the shore of the Quesnel and Fraser Rivers. It is 5 km in length and takes a leisurely one hour to complete.

Visitors staying at our vacation rental accommodations today find a perfect place from which to launch outdoor adventures such as hiking, mountain climbing, trail riding, rock hounding or fishing. Others may prefer to soak up the rich history of the Gold Rush era, and of course, everyone wants to try their hand at a little gold panning all within close proximity to your vacation rentals.

Take to the air, on an aerial tour of the spectacular Bowron Lake Chain and the hanging glaciers, ice fields, knife-edged mountain peaks and waterfalls of the Cariboo and Rocky Mountains.

The large, backcountry Bowron Lake Provincial Park offers a wide variety of recreational opportunities close to your vacation rental accommodations and lodging: camping, canoeing, boating, kayaking, hiking, swimming, fishing and winter recreation. Particularly notable is its canoe circuit, which offers miles of spectacular scenery and great opportunities for viewing wildlife. The entire park is a wildlife sanctuary, including prime habitat for grizzly bears, so be on your best backcountry camping behavior. The Bowron Lakes are also a major stopover on the bird migration route, so bring your binoculars.

Quesnel offers two golfing options within easy reach of your vacation rental accommodations. Quesnel Golf Course, a public 18-hole, par 71 course located just north of downtown Quesnel, is set in rolling terrain, with deep creek gullies and dense stands of cottonwood trees. The alternative is the Dragon Lake Golf Course, a semi-private 9-hole course located 7 km south of Quesnel.

Enjoy world-class fly fishing and canoeing while staying at your lodging, vacation rentals or condo rentals, take a stroll along the beautiful, relaxing Riverfront Trail, golf one of the three golf courses, swim in one of many surrounding lakes, or follow the path of pioneers and prospectors on the scenic routes of the Gold Rush Trail. Other activities include downhill or cross-country skiing, horseback riding, snow shoeing, river rafting, hiking, and biking.
