A good thirty-five years ago, the former owners Joe and Sabine Hoessl from Germany settled down at the Spirit Ranch, in the untouched wilderness on the West Coast of Canada. It was planned as a temporary change in their lives became permanent because they just had fallen in love with the beautiful place and the lifestyle in this remote location. To be distanced from the next town by 125km didn’t bother them. It might be a disadvantage for getting supplies and stuff like that, but to escape the hectic of the city, it’s just what you are looking for. In the early 1980s, Joe and Sabine began with traditional cattle ranching on a range of more than 25.000 acres. They thought they should share this experience with other people and built a cabin to rent it out to guests, who loved it from the first day. The fresh air, the tranquility, the hospitality, and the personal atmosphere. So the cabin happened to be booked out all the time, which made the Hoessls think bigger. That was the beginning of the Big Creek Lodge. After working shifts from dusk till dawn for four years, they left their old farmhouse, moved into the lodge and started the guest ranch business. Over time the Big Creek Lodge has developed more and more which finally lead to what we have today: An unforgettable place to visit! In 2017, new owners took over and have continued to build upon that legacy.
