Overview

Photos and Description of the Ainsworth Hot Springs vacation bungalow rental

Private Self-Contained Cabin With Secluded Lake Access

An architectural jewel, constructed by a local woodworking artist, Kootenay Lake's Gatehouse-on-the-Point is fully self-contained with a complete galley kitchen and full bath, a wonderful (special) Queen bed, and dramatic lake and mountain views out every window. Radiant floor heating comforts you year around. There is a covered front porch for sitting or dining in the summer, one that looks east and south over trees, to the lake and to the Purcell mountains beyond.

The Gatehouse accommodation is located far from the highway, 15 minutes south of Kaslo and 6 minutes north of Ainsworth Hot Springs on the eastern tip of Woodbury Point. It sits upstairs, on the top floor, above an unoccupied double garage, and out of sight from the main house on the property. There is also a private lakeside deck, down 90 steps along moss covered and flowering cliffs of considerable beauty. This dramatic shoreline, with its steep drop off, also happens to offer some of the best shore fishing to be found on Kootenay Lake. Swimming in the lake is most comfortable between mid-July and mid-August.

There are four nearby golf courses, boating, fishing, hiking, river walks, fine birding, mountain biking, glaciers, cross-country skiing and provincial parks, plus the renowned local hot springs (cave and pool) to be enjoyed. All are easily accessible. Kootenay Lake's Gatehouse-on-the-Point may prove easier to enjoy, and a little less costly, for those creative would-be guests who also explore the web for further information about staying with us. At our Gatehouse you will find the perfect vacation hideaway for a deep rest, or for writing, celebration, or renewal.
