About Us

We’re Ursula and Matt Johnston and we are the owners of Green Mountain Cottage. We call Wells Gray our home and horses have been our life for years. Green Mountain Cottage has been our home for the last 15 years. We loved living there and now we want to share it with you. Hopefully you will love it as much as we did and do. Professionally we are both farriers and we run a horseback-riding company in Upper Clearwater Valley (www.westernriding-bc.com).  When we’re not working we’re busy running our ranch, gardening, playing music and riding. 

Ursula is originally from Austria and speaks German too.

Feel home surrounded by nature in an original atmosphere


Green Mountain Cottage is surrounded by Wells Gray Provincial Park and very close to the park entry itself. It has a wonderful view onto Green Mountain and Hemp Creek. The old part (Outlaw suite) of the house was built out of forest fire cedar logs which makes for a great temperature and atmosphere in the house.
The newer part (Inlaw Suite) of the house was built about 7 years ago out of massive square fir logs. Feels very cosy!
