On your way to the artistic community of Wells or the historic town of Barkerville be sure to stop along the way at Cottonwood house. It was an old roadhouse for weary travellers on their way to Barkerville to strike it rich. There is a restaurant on site as well as comfortable bunkhouses for you to stay in which are perfect for large groups. When it is in season, pick up some fresh produce from the gardens that is sold on site. The interpreters lead tours that allow you to explore the buildings and get a feel for what it was like to stay at Cottonwood house. There are many activities that are available to you while you are visiting so be sure to stop in and ask the helpful staff. If you continue towards Wells and you want to see another roadhouse then turn right onto Stanley Rd to the abandoned roadhouse of Stanley which includes a Chinese cemetery.
