History :

Bobb Inn History
The Bobb Inn property was first established by Ed Bobb in the late 1930s. He and his wife built the original house out of hand-hewn logs. They brought windows and walls in by horse-drawn wagon. The Bobbs raised a family on the property, making their living by trapping. In 1948 the Snead Family from California bought the place, but they failed at ranching and left after 3 years. The Grahams bought it, but pushed new roads into the bulk of another property which is now known as Aspen Valley Ranch. The Bobb Inn became abandoned, being 11 km from the new ranch headquarters.


In the Autumn of 1973, a group of American university students purchased the Bobb Inn, with the intention of “going back to the land.” When they arrived, there was no running water, no power or phone. Over the next few years these city-bred kids grew into hardworking pioneers, becoming self-sustaining through raising animals, establishing a large garden and grooming 60 acres of productive hay fields. Various partners built their own custom-made homes, shops and outbuildings, and by agreement, no house can be seen from any of the others. The group captured several springs on their hillside which supplies all 6 homes and gardens with delicious, abundant water. Access to the Bobb Inn evolved from a 7 km unmaintained wagon road to a gazetted road maintained year-round by the province. Today each house has electricity, phone and Wi-Fi. Different partners founded their own businesses in such varied areas as construction, woodworking, forestry, management consulting, film and photography and music recording. The current owners, after 46 years, have decided to move on to write new chapters.
