SeaTac airport, for instance) with a rental bike so you can have the

this option, because Seattle is so close to BC.

Highland House B&B Inn (Logan Lake)
12% off rates
Logan Lake is smack dab at the junction of two lesser-traveled DHs (DH51 is a favourite of one of the co-authors) and a TE! This friendly, former guest house for the Highland Valley Copper Mine is not your average B&B, no sirree Pa. You can always talk bikes with Don, proud owner of a Harley and a Kawi (now that's what we call balanced living). And as you sit at the long, ranch-style breakfast table eating Doreen's fresh croissants with homemade strawberry jam, followed by her scrumptious eggs bennie with real hash browns, you might gaze out the panoramic windows overlooking a 100 acre or so vista and
see a cattle drive. The massive stone fireplace dominates the far wall across the large, vaulted-ceiling room filled with large western-motif bronze sculptures. You could be forgiven for thinking you are in Bonanza (before Pernell Roberts left the show). Yes, a delightful Ponderosa-like oasis of calm situated in peaceful, spirit-restoring countryside filled with the calls of the rare Mountain Bluebird. Did we mention the hot tub to soak away those road-warrior aches and
pains? You can feel it now, can't you??

Located 20 km (12.5 mi) north of Merritt out in the country
in the beautiful Nicola Valley on one of our favourite DHs (DH31), this
100 old hotel/restaurant/saloon/store/gas station with the friendly,

Bridge (Spences Bridge)
10% off all accommodation

charming B&B Inn (formerly the Garuda Inn) perched over the Thompson River rapids at the junction of DH29 and DH9. Also nearby are DH40, DH51 and others, so it’s a natural choice to stop for the night. It has 12 rooms with shared or private baths, indoor and outdoor dining and a large guest lounge. Hosts Ray and Lynne run a flavourful vegetarian restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. There’s fresh bread and baking daily as well as home-made desserts (did we mention the great
coffee?) There are patio views of the river, CPR railway, rugged mountains, ospreys nests, hummingbirds and if you’re lucky – big horned sheep.
(The Inn is not licensed but there is a pub nearby. Thank God.)
