Clean, well kept, picturesque, well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We came here in the middle of significant snowfall in December, it was great! The road was plowed regularly, the house was perfect for a winter retreat. Our host was helpful and quickly responded to any questions we had.

The location is beautiful, and the house had everything we needed for or weeks stay. Thank you!

Lovely accomodations (4.5 stars)

  • 4 of 5

The house itself is beautiful and has all the amenities you need including a wide assortment of dishes, cleaning supplies, and great appliances. Beds are extremely comfortable. Bedding options were available. Warm nights so there was a blanket instead of just a duvet.

I loved that there are only a handful of properties in this area so there's little to no traffic and it felt safe for both kids and dogs.

Our outdoor firepit wasnt functional nor the wine fridge which is the only reason I gave the properly 4.5 stars. I'm sure the owners will have this fixed soon!

The area that this is situated on is beautiful and the views are absolutely amazing. We were well aware of the 'hike' down to the lake when we booked so brought appropriate footwear as it can be slippery on the path.

I would have no concerns in recommending this property to others and would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful home, excellent views.

  • 5 of 5

This house is very new, built around 2010, and is still in very good shape. The views of the lake and mountains from the home are spectacular. The property is well-described in the listing. I agree with another reviewer that an AWD or 4WD vehicle would be preferable, but we had no problem on the long driveway in our minivan. I would say the biggest downside is how far it is to hike down to the lake, or rather, the hike back up. But the lake itself was amazing. We used the provided kayaks to paddle over to a nearby waterfall. I would stay here again.

Remote beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic views from the deck of the lake and mountains of the National Park. The owner thought of everything to make the stay comfortable and easy to see the area. Complete loose leave notebook with explanations and directions for everything in the area. Nicely furnished! All the utensils, dishes, and glasses you will need. Can't say enough, Thanks for a very enjoyable 8 days Sarah! A small thing for the future the upstairs master bedroom could use a chair,.... for old people that need it to get ready for bed and dressed in the morning. The only irritating thing had to do with VRBO holding the security deposit after the owner was very prompt in returning it.

Perfect quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin that was very clean, well maintained, and stocked with everything that we needed. It provided a great base for day-trips around the area, or just a peaceful place to BBQ a meal and sit on the patio and enjoy the stars. This is one of the quietest places I have been in a very long time, even on a hot August weekend the lake was not busy.

The owner was great with all communication and was excellent at accommodating us for the stay. We will be back!

Beautiful cabins situated over a quite lake. Beautiful countryside mountain views.

  • 4 of 5

The cabins are very well maintained but we were disappointed to find out on arriving that the wine cooler had broken down.

We enjoyed our morning hikes down to the lake and back up again. We were surprised at how steep the access to the lake was but made good use of it for exercising.

Communication with the owner was excellent and very useful and pertinent information was provided prior to our arrival.

I would recommend this property to others looking for a little bit of isolation. I would suggest an Allwheel drive or 4x4 especially for anyone accessing the lower cabin #3.

We enjoyed our trips to Kaslo, Nelson, Nacusp and the smaller nearby communities of Silverton and New Denver.
