About Sarah Flint

Although I'm busy in Toronto raising two young children, my favourite in the whole wide world is sitting on the back deck of our cabin in the Kootenays, enjoying a campfire, glass of wine and gazing at stars.

Sarah Flint purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Sarah Flint chose Central Kootenay H

'The Kootenays are one of the last great places in all of North America. It is the safest, least touched, cheapest, most visually dramatic recreation area left.'

- Andy Cohen, BC Division of Resorts of the Canadian Rockies

West Kootenay Bliss

  • 4 of 5

As a resident of a neighboring valley I thought I had seen all this chunk of BC had to offer but I hadn't. I was blown away by the visuals staying at this lovely cabin....and the lake was perfection. The home itself is beautiful, well fitted out, super comfy for families to spread out and of importance to me...the beds were really good. Our dogs felt quite at home as well, they enjoyed walks up the road and meeting the neighbors pooch. They thought the path down to the lake was fabulous. We brought out 24ft boat and while there isn't slips to moor in, there was a spot on the inside of the dock to tie up safely. We also had the option of mooring on a bouy if the wind picked up. It should be noted that the dock in the pictures isn't the current dock.

We did have a few hiccups. Because of the steep hill down to the water, and that we had all our boating paraphenalia to haul around I asked if we could bring my brother dirt bike (he is fully licensed/insured and has a spark suppressor on his muffler) so we could use him as a mule to carry the heavier items up and down. When I booked in the fall that seems OK with Sarah however several days into our stay they told us we couldn't use it due to insurance liability reasons. I totally understand that but would have been nice to know before hauling the bike over.

The second issue was mice. The owners were actively working on eliminating this issue which we appreciated but it was a fairly significant problem. We had to make modification to our sleeping habits and food storage techniques. I'm hoping they win that battle!

Overall, we loved it. We would stay there again. Sarah was lovely to work with. Chris, the caretaker, is a gem. The area itself is magical.

Fantastic stay at Slocan Lake over New Years

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends rented both #566207 and #575472 over New Years 2017 and we had a fantastic time. The places are beautiful and the views are even more so! The places were very clean, cozy, and well outfitted, and the beds were very comfortable as well. The driveway was a bit icy in some spots but manageable. Sarah was great to work with and we'd definitely stay here again!

Amazing stay in the Kootenay Region high above Slocan Lake

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Cabin 3 --it sits the closest to the lake and mountain views, high above Slocan Lake between Slocan and New Denver, BC. The high-end "cabin" is well maintained, immaculate and beautiful--amazing full length deck and views from the entire living area and kitchen. The master suite on third level is huge, 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on main level and the additional living area, bedroom, bathroom and laundry room on the lower floor makes it so families can spread out.The pool table was an added bonus! The road in to the 5 homes is steep and 4 wheel drive made it easier to drive up from the lowest parking area in front of cabin 3. The remoteness adds to the very special feeling of truly being away from it all! New Denver is a charming "village" of a town with lake access and spectacular views of Valhalla Provincial Park. It's just a short drive to mining ghost towns and some terrific hikes. Kootenay Lake is only about an hour's drive away with the larger town of Nelson or smaller town of Kaslo to visit. Delicious lunch at Rosewood Cafe in Kaslo--Highly recommend! The house is well equipped--even has Bear spray and wasp spray! We stopped in Nelson on our way in and out, we enjoyed meals at Re-lish and The Full Circle Cafe. For a spectacular highlight don't miss Idaho Peak on a clear day--you may want to hire shuttle from Kaslo (their slogan is "If you ride with us, you're sure to arrive")--if you are squeamish about single lane, steep, steep forest service roads with severe drops (no guard rails) and hairpin, very blind turns! The breathtaking views from the hike to the top are 360 degrees and worth the crazy drive! Of course, you could just hang out and enjoy the awesome views from the cabin and deck! You can't find better views for dinner dining. We ate in every night and just enjoyed the peace, quiet and starry nights! A wonderful "retreat" vacation! Sarah was responsive, helpful and informative.

Relaxing and breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was so great for a our large family to stay in:) We all had ample space so it didn't feel crowded:) the view from the deck and pretty much anywhere in the house is so beautiful! Even when it rained:) the big table held the whole family comfortably. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The beds were comfortable and all the rooms were great. There were extra linens.

The three bathrooms were also a major plus as the whole family had to get ready for a wedding. We really enjoyed the pool table.

We found some hikes to do in and around the cabin and the little towns were cute.

I would Highly recommend this place to friends. The only thing that I would warn them about is the hill that you have to drive down right at the cabin is very steep. But we didn't have a problem in the truck.
