Breathtaking Beauty

  • 5 of 5

This place is GORGEOUS! The pictures really don't do it justice. If you are looking to getaway from everything with a bunch of your friends or family, this is the place to go. The views were beyond beautiful and we had all of the amenities that we needed. If you are looking to get down to the river be sure to take the gravel trail from the front entrance, it's easy to get there. Highly recommend not taking a car here. We weren't sure about the terrain but it is EXTREMELY bumpy and winding leading up to the cabin. I have a Dodge Caliber and I made it fine, but it was ROUGH. We had someone with a car who made it but it is not recommended to avoid damage to your vehicle. As long as your vehicle is not low to the ground you will be fine! There is no wi-fi but you do have cell reception! At night since you are away from everything you have no light pollution and you have a perfect view of the stars! Again this place is gorgeous and spacious and I highly recommend!!

Beautiful getaway in the mountains, amazing views, quiet and private

  • 5 of 5

Jo-Anne was very helpful! She was prompt to answer emails when we had questions before arrival and flexible with check in and check out times.

The property was immaculate. There was more than enough space for our two families and our dog. This is the perfect place to get away and enjoy a quiet retreat in the mountains.

The walk to the lake/dock was approx 20 minutes down the steep road. Other residents in the area used atv's to get down to the lake.

We will definitely return!

beautiful view and great home

  • 4 of 5

the large deck and windows do show off the view which is one of the most gorgeous we'd ever seen. the home is very clean and having so many bathrooms was nice- owner was very friendly and helpful- would absolutely stay again. only comment would be that it's not "on the lake" if you wanted a property you could swim at or hang out on a dock- it's a very long hike down to water thAt we didn't even attempt

Amazing Log Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this log home March 11th-13th and absolutely loved it there. We had 7 adults and 3 dogs with us. There was more than enough space for everyone. The drive up to the home is a bit daunting. Getting there is easy, it's just that the road that leads up to the house is a bit of a trek. We had to go in the back way because there had been some rain in the few days prior so the dirt road was quite muddy. You definitely needed a vehicle that could handle a bit of off road terrain, sharp turns and a bit of a steep incline (I wouldn't recommend bringing a car up). We had a small SUV, and two half ton trucks that made it up the road just fine.

The house is spectacular. It's waaaaaay better then what the pictures look like. Beautiful open concept main floor with a huge window overlooking Koocanusa. Very large wrap around deck with patio furniture and a big BBQ. The kitchen is very well stocked and in great working condition. There is a large dining room table to seat 8 people. In the living room part there is a comfy leather couch and two lounging chairs. There is also a wood burning fire place that provides TONS of heat and it was nice to look at! On the main floor there are two bedrooms, one is a bit larger than the other, both have ensuite bathrooms and queen size beds. Down stairs there are two more bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom and the fourth bedroom has three single beds. There is a bathroom outside of the fourth bedroom with a stand up shower. Down stairs has a large couch and a TV area that you can watch movies on, there is no cable/satellite. There is also a large laundry room if needed.

The only down fall of the property was that there were tons of stink bugs in the house. We were constantly killing them and swatting them with the fly swatter. Initially I was pretty grossed out, but you kind of get use to them, haha.

The property around the house is very nice, super secluded. There are lots of places to walk around, spectacular views of Koocanusa. I would absolutely recommend this place!!
