We have enjoyed Blueberry Springs for over 20 years. Our three boys love spending time on the beach in the summer or ski-dooing during the winter months.

Steve purchased this cottage in 1991

Blueberry Springs is next to South facing beaches with nature walks through spectacular Albas Provincial Park close by.

Well maintained Hiking Trails through magnificent Albas Provincial Park.

The relaxing hush of Blueberry Stream is in front of the cabin.

Blueberry Springs has the luxury of being the only private property surrounded by Albas Provincial Park.

Bring your favorite book along with a coffee and sit by the fire...

Hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this property! I went up for a cousins bacherlorette party. It was perfect! The pictures online don't do it justice. When you first arrive there, you just say Wow! and then you keep saying that your whole stay. It's really in the middle of no where. It's peaceful and beautiful. The cabin (that is available now - there are more to come - yay!) is very cute and the decor is so perfectly detailed. There is plenty to do there, you can hike to an awesome waterfall, swim in the lake, pick wild flowers, play in the creek, read in the hammock, sit by the fire, take a bath in the best bathroom ever! Some of us gals even slept in there because it was so welcoming! If you want to get away from the city and just relax, this is the perfect place to go. We are already planning our next trip there!

The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner Steve went above and beyond what we could have asked for. He was so helpful! He really made sure that our stay was perfect and we had everything that we needed.

I would recommend this property to a friend, relative, or anyone looking for the perfect vacation property! I will be going back with my family and a possible family reunion will be held here once Steve gets his other cabins up and running.

To get to this property, it's after a long logging road, so the only advice I would give is to take the logging road super slow cause the logging trucks move very very fast.

Other than that, you would not be dissapointed if you were to stay at Blueberry Springs!

Quintessential "Cabin in the Woods"

Quintessential "Cabin in the Woods"
  • 5 of 5
What can I say!? My family had an absolutely incredible time at Blueberry Springs! The breathtaking beauty, mixed with the real wilderness experience make it a perfect family getaway. We saw an incredible amount of wildlife, big and small. Picked endless amounts of wild strawberries, blueberries and huckleberries. Played in our own private Shuswap cove. Hiked the Albas falls trail a couple of times. Endless amounts of smores eating and hammock swinging truly made it an unforgettable family holiday. My life feels fuller after having experienced a week in this beautiful tucked away paradise. We definitely would love to come back! Steve and Lesley make the most gracious host and hostess. Thank-you so much for your hospitality!

Two notes:
(1) the true wilderness does not come without bugs... My Off Skintastic was not quite potent enough for those little suckers. Make sure to bring Deep Woods.
(2) The upper loft bedroom is accessible via a ladder... which is ok for older kids, but made it a little challenging with my Mr. Independent 2 year old. Need to keep an eye on the little ones just to make sure they have helping hands.

Not to mention... the best holiday my dog has ever been on... :)

True Cottage Experience!!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking to get away from it all, enjoy the outdoors and have your own secluded beach..then Blueberry Springs is the place for you. Spent a week here with my family (4 kids) and couldn't ask for anything better. Cottage was well maintained and clean with a great little loft for the kids. Nice big deck to sit out on and having a fire in the river rock fire place is a perfect way to end the day.

With no T.V. available (this is a plus), my kids spent time exploring the creek bed, collecting drift wood, rocks, playing games and reading. I finished 4 books myself that week. The best though is the beach. We spent time here swimming, body surfing, skipping stones and just enjoying being with the family and with no one else around, it was PERFECT!

Steve (Owner) was awesome. Helpful, friendly and most of all wants to make sure you enjoy your stay. Plus, he is a dead ringer for Tom Selleck from Magnum P.I.

Would highly recommend Blueberry Springs if you really want to get away and just relax. It was more than we expected and we will definitely be back.

Disappointing - Only Suitable for 2 People!

  • 2 of 5
We have a lot of experience with VRBO properties and this is a very small cabin and is only suitable for 2 adults and possibly 2 toddlers. For the cost of this property, you should be getting a much larger cabin with more comfortable/clean furnishings. The Beach is not within view, the stereo does not work and the cabin needs cleaning up.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review letter regarding your vacation stay at Blueberry Springs.

This is our first and only negative review since opening our place for rental four years ago. We take any issues seriously.

As with all our guests, I personally walk through an orientation list to familiarize them with our cabin and property. Being available on site throughout their stay, I check in on a regular basis to ensure everything is to their satisfaction.

At no time during your two week stay did anyone mention being unable to switch on the stereo, and in fact, upon your departure, I used the sound system while preparing for the next family.

Blueberry Springs VRBO profile makes no mention of our cabin being on the beach and clearly states “Beaches are a short three minute stroll though Albas Park”.

Our price point reflects the privacy enjoyed by our guests and the off grid nature of the property. We conduct a thorough cleaning of our cabin in preparation for the arrival of our holidaymakers and apologize for any oversights there may have been.

Regarding the size of our cabin, it is a cozy 750 square feet. The cabin has an open concept vibe with bedroom area, sleeping loft, large open concept bathroom/lounge and combined kitchen/living room/dining room area. Currently we have a family of seven, with three adults and four children, all happy with their stay. Ones need for space and preference for style of accommodation is subjective. The cabin you rented is best suited to those who enjoy the outdoors and the simple charm that this original cabin offers.

We are in the process of building 3 larger cabins on the property that will be more suitable for those holiday-goers looking for more spacious and luxurious accommodation, while enjoying this magical location.

Wishing you many years of happy holidays with VRBO properties.

Best regards,
Steve Rappard

The perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5
Following the owner's helpful advice and settling us in to Blueberry Springs Cabin we had a simply lovely holiday. Enjoying all the comforts of the well equipped cabin and stepping out onto the deck in the morning for breakfast - surveying all the beautiful surrounding countryside - was simply perfect.
Strolling down to the lake for a swim and soaking up the sun on the beach reading a book was heaven.
Visiting the stunning falls at Celista Creek was breathtaking and well worth the walk.
A perfect end to the day was climbing up the ridge enjoying the sunset and a bottle of wine. A truly memorable holiday.

Paradise at Blueberry Springs

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at this charming cabin and completely fell in love with it. It's unique location and secluded setting makes it the perfect holiday getaway. The cabin is warm and comfortable and had all we needed for a cabin holiday experience. We explored the surrounding area on foot, including the spectacular waterfalls nearby and the lake shore. The evenings were spent climbing to the top of the ridge and watching the sunset followed by dinner on the deck with a roaring open fire. The highlight for the children was to lie out on the grass at night and watch the stars in a sky completely devoid of any light pollution. Bliss!
