The Guichon brothers left the grazing region of the Savoie in France and arrived in California in 1857. They immediately trekked north to Canada in pursuit of the Cariboo gold rush in British Columbia. When the rewards of prospecting became marginal, they pursued other interests which eventually led them to the ranching region of the Nicola Valley. Joseph, the youngest of the brothers, acquired ranch property in Quilchena and it was here that he decided to build the Quilchena Hotel.

Quilchena Resort is the perfect place to escape the city and enjoy what the Thompson-Nicola region has to offer. Stay for a romantic honeymoon. Invite your family to explore the Nicola Valley.
