About Helen and Andrew Sheppard

Andrew, Helen, Andreas and Mica would like to welcome you to our Guest House.

SnowDrifters Guest House has been a dream of ours for many years, as we both grew up and lived in the Rocky Mountains, we knew that the mountains would always be our home. We have lived and played in these mountains for over 10 years now. Revelstoke has a warm sense of community, incredible skiing and laid back lifestyle that made us choose it as the perfect place to pursue our dream. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our experiences, as well as being a part of yours. Thank you for considering Snowdrifters Guest House as your home away from home.

Helen and Andrew Sheppard purchased this apartment in 2010

Five Stars Is Not Nearly Enough

  • of 5

Snowdrifters in Revelstoke was easily the best vacation accommodation decision of my life. Helen and Andrew welcomed us as if we were long-time friends and guests of their wonderful home. Their generosity and friendliness was beyond belief - these are truly amazing people and we feel lucky to have shared time with them. The rental itself was luxurious and immaculately clean, but these are almost afterthoughts in comparison to the memories we have from spending time with our hosts. We are already looking forward to returning next year! Thank you Andrew and Helen!!!

Helen has thought of everything...

  • 5 of 5

Midway through a three week swing on the powder highway, this place felt just like home rather than 'just a condo'. Sure the basement location took a bit of getting used to, but that was the only minor negative in a wonderful stay. Two very large bedrooms and great living areas meant we never felt claustrophobic or 'cabin fever' ish .

If you're reading this review, you've probably already made the decision to come to Revelstoke so no need for me to harp on about the amazing snow and terrain at the ski resort (we received a metre + of snow in the week we were here!).

As a host Helen was wonderful. All the little touches, from the ski boot warmers and ski storage, well stocked kitchen, ski DVDs and magazines for the tv, all the necessities for the laundry, heated floors etc. We were travelling with family, including our two year old son who didn't destroy anything try as he might. Perhaps the nicest thing was Helen's regard for making our stay as positive as possible, be it shovelling out the driveway each morning, hooking us up with an extra ski pass, or giving top dinner and shopping recommendations. It genuinely felt like a home away from home, only a three min drive from the town centre, and a five minute drive from the ski resort. We were Revelstoke residents for the week, not just gaper tourists staying on the hill.

One final point if you have kids and are skiing at RMR - Mountaincare daycare were terrific and by far the best day care service we came across at the BC Interior ski resorts.

Accommodation only outdone by the hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Snowdrifters not sure what to expect. We'd had a bit of email correspondence with Helen and she had been very helpful. But from the moment we arrived we were treated like real guests in their home. Our two young boys loved the opportunity to get to know their two boys and being allowed to play with them in the great, kid friendly backyard was a thrill. They all went well above expectation the entire time we were there to make us feel comfortable and really ensured we would get the most out of our time in Revelstoke.

The accommodations are also fantastic. The suite is very modern and beautifully decorated with every amenity you'd want.

We would highly recommend Snowdrifters as I can't imagine a better place to stay in Revelstoke. We've already talked about planning another trip out there in a couple of years to ski, largely so we can stay at Snowdrifters and see the family (and Rocco the dog) again.

Thank you Helen and family for making our stay such a great memory.

Girls hiking weekend

Perfect place! We had everything we needed and more. Helen is so helpful and offered to drive us to town if we needed. We will definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone heading to Revelstoke. So much nicer then staying in a hotel! Thank you Helen :)

Amazing. Fantastic. Highly Recommend this B&B.

  • 5 of 5

I just had the pleasure of staying at Snowdrifters B&B for 7 nights with my husband and two children, ages 5 & 8. I can’t say enough good things about our stay there. I’ve split my thoughts into a few categories:

The accommodations itself: It was immaculate, spacious, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked, including tea, coffee and hot chocolate, the bathroom with soap, shampoo and conditioner, and it was really convenient to have an in-suite washer and dryer.

The location: so convenient. When you walked out the door and turned right, you were less than a 10 minute walk to the city centre or the very nice aquatic centre. If you turned left when you walked out the door, you were onto the greenbelt, and from there you could be on a paved path that wound its way into town, or you could take the fork, and go onto the gravel path that went for many miles, along the river, where you will find yourself away from civilization and surrounded by beautiful mountains. It was also only a 10 minute drive from the ski hill, or 20 minutes from beautiful Mount Revelstoke National Park.

The hosts: so friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful. They also had kids, that welcomed our kids, easily sharing toys and books. And since they knew we were coming with kids, the hosts had a pile of brochures waiting for us, with all the activities in the vicinity that would appeal to kids. Anything we had questions on, they could provide first hand experience, and also offered up lots of ideas of things to visit, that suited our interests. Our first day there, they lead us to beautiful waterfalls, that you’d never be able to find without a local.

I would go back there in a heartbeat – the family, accommodations and location were just amazing.
