5/5 Excellent

Our family needed an escape and this property was absolutely perfect. Peaceful, quiet, privacy, landscape, scenery, functionality, it had it all. The private dock for our boat was ideal and made the entire lake accessible. The calm cove made tubing for the kids excellent, the SUP provided allowed the kids to experience something new and take in the majestic location from the water. The main house is excellent, the bar cabana was very convenient and useful, the secondary cabana for additional sleeping arrangements worked well for our family of 5, and the hot tub provided a nice touch of relaxation (especially in the cooler evenings after a busy day). The only improvements would have been if the dishwasher worked (Christopher did disclose it was on the fritz so it wasn’t a surprise, just a minor inconvenience), and not all jets were working in the hot tub (didn’t take away from anything at all and really a minor issue). All in all we really loved staying here and got the exact escape we needed. We would highly recommend this property and definitely consider a return!

Incredible Beach Setting!
What a great week....ideal family accommodations, and all the desired amenities for this incredible lake setting. Walk, paddle, swim, enjoy evening campfires, dark sky star gazing, abundant clean sandy beaches, this is the perfect combination for an outstanding, memorable vacation! Convenient access to Kokanee Park also a real bonus. Chris was a perfect host and we hope to return again soon.

Relaxing Paradise
The location of this property can’t be beat. It was so peaceful and beautiful. The house was perfect for what we needed but the outdoor space is what makes this truly paradise. Check in was simple and Chris was always available to answer any questions I had.
