Ernie and Debbie live in Kamloops. Their children and assorted pets have vacationed here at the lake for 17 years. The kids and many friends learned to water ski, wake board and swim there. Without TV, they learned to entertain themselves with games and thru exploration. The children, now adults love to return to the lake whenever they can.
Debbie Ryan purchased this cottage in 1996
This property has clear and clean water with no weeds. We are located across the lake from the higher boat traffic areas. Because it is boat access only, we have loved the quiet, the visiting animals: deer/otter/occasional bear and the birds: eagle/osprey/owls etc.
We love to entertain our friends on the beach for dinner: lamb/salmon on long tables covered with white tablecloths, candles and native flowers.
We have rested and read many books under the umbrellas. The water is refreshing on hot summer days.
We enjoyed a wonderful week at this lovely property. The cottage is beautifully decorated with interesting collectibles, linens, books and antiques. The large sandy beach stretches out in front of the cottage with a fire pit and chairs - the perfect place for family gatherings. My favourite is the covered front porch where we sat for morning coffee, looking out at the glassy lake. We swam for hours in the clear water then sunned on the dock. There's lots of room inside with comfortable beds and big fluffy quilts. This is the perfect place for that relaxing, pristine lake experience.
We had a great family vacation here with another young family. Four adults, three toddlers and a black lab. It was nice to spend a week at the Shuswap on a part of the lake that is quiet and relaxing. The water was clean and warm and the huge private beach was nice and sandy. Our toddlers had no problem walking on the beach and in the water. We made good use out of the beach chairs and a little table with a nice big umbrella. They even have a large serving tray that was great for bringing snacks and lunch down to the beach. Inside the cabin, the kitchen has every normal kitchen item you would expect. Even this amazing pancake flipper. Obviously, this cabin was not built with containing toddlers in mind (I believe it is one of the original cabins on the lake). Luckily we knew about the steep staircase and brought a pressure mounted baby gate for the top of the stairs. Worked like a charm. It also came in handy for the contraption we rigged up to keep the kiddos on the porch. The generator was great to use for a bit in the evenings. The cabin also has propane lights, but it was nicer to sit on the porch by candle light. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The owners were very helpful and easy to contact when we had any questions. Even the neighbours were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again for sure.
This was a nice cottage, beautifully situated, however.. there are way too many antiques, in every draw and on every surface. Nowhere to put your stuff. Living out of a suitcase was not want we had envisioned. Obviously a family cottage, but needs simplifying if its going to continue as a rental. Might be nice to warn people that two of the bedrooms are on the second floor that is accessed by a ladder (not stairs) Little tough for older folks. And the double bed in the kids room is not! Its a 3/4 frame with a double mattress.
