About Stan and Denise Kroeker

Hi, we are Stan and Denise Kroeker. We have enjoyed beautiful Christine Lake since 1999 and always dreamed of owning a lakefront home at Christina Lake. We are happy to share our lovely home until we retire to the lake in a few years and hope you will fall in love with the area and home as we have.

Stan and Denise Kroeker purchased this house in 2013

Why Stan and Denise Kroeker chose Grand Forks

We believe that Christina Lake is the best kept secret of the West Kootenays. Even though it is the warmest tree lined lake in North America, it has remained a pristine, uncommercialized wilderness retreat. We take every opportunity to “get away from the city” as a family and relax and recharge in its quiet charm.

What makes this house unique

There is nothing nicer than waking up in the morning to the sound of nature all around. The sun rises over the mountains to the east and shines across the lake while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the lake front deck. You can enjoy the day at your our own private beach front and dock or spend the day on the lake. The swimming is great! When the stars light up the sky at night you may enjoy the hot tub & fire pit.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. The house had amazing views. The property was very clean and the beds are so comfortable ( better than home). The hosts were very easy to communicate with any time before or during our stay. Would definitely stay again. If only the owners could have melted the ice on the lake and control the weather.

Bueatiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Twin Firs was a bueatiful property with lots of room for two families. We rented both units as we needed the whole house. It was well set up and very comfortable and was nicer then the photos showed.

Over all I would recommend this property for any one looking for a large home on Christina lake.

Well Organized and Perfect for Groups&Families

  • 5 of 5

First off, the pictures really sell this property short. If you like what you see then you should book this house as it is better in person. The owners could do themselves a good service by spending a few hundred dollars on professional photos of the property.

This house is ideal for multiple families as the main living area is setup for larger groups while the ample square footage and design of the property allows for privacy of individuals when it's time to relax alone.

The owners were beyond accommodating. The house was spotless on arrival. The house has everything you would require with two fully stocked kitchens and two sets of washer/dryers.

This house is also perfect for children. There is a dedicated bedroom in the lower suite area that has a double bed bunk for young kids. The room and adjacent bathroom was decorated for kids and ours loved it.

I wish the owners here success with their rental, it has been well thought out and the property deserves a five star review.

WOW, fantastic vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

I was with seven ladies that enjoyed this remarkable home on Christina Lake. Communications with Tim before our rental date were easy and direct. The home was more than we expected, clean and well-maintained - a few light bulbs missing. The kitchen was well equipped with all the necessities and then some. Casserole dishes, pots and pans, serving bowls, utensils, wine/cocktail glasses and a nice selection of basic spices. Bring your condiments, coffee, oils etc. We throughly enjoyed the deck areas which had several tables and comfy seats. We used the lounge chairs on the dock to enjoy the afternoon sun. The weather was above normal for mid September. The beds were super comfortable and the bedding was above standard. The views from every room are to die for. We received a warm welcome from Trudy who was very helpful making suggestions for our hiking and golf events. Some of us went to a great par 3 golf course while 3 of the "golfers" golfed the 18 hole course next door. All in all we had a tremendous time at TwinFirs.

P.S. We ate at the little Italian restaurant (Il Lago) at the corner of West Lake Dr. and the the Hwy. The homemade meatballs are superb and we enjoyed a great prawn fettuccini. Very homey cafe style.

A delightful lakeside property for groups up to 12.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second one-week visit which we enjoyed even more than the first because of the lack of smoke and ash from nearby forest fires. The property, now under new ownership, is as welcoming and comfortable as it ever was. We enjoy the privacy of our own dock which extends far enough into the lake to get past the swimmer's itch issue so common in many of BC's interior lakes. Although the property is located at the developed end of the lake, the level of boat traffic and accompanying noise was quite acceptable. The three levels comfortably accommodated us, our two children and spouses and grand-children with each family on a separate floor which makes it easy to have some private time. We took a vote and the universal response was that we keep on returning.
