About Scotty Henderson

I too love to travel having been to all five continents as being an entrepreneur in the import business has taken me to diverse locations. This property can hold a large group like few can. While not luxurious it is comfortable as it's about decks the dock and boating. It's the company that you keep.

Scotty Henderson purchased this chateau / country house in 1998

Why Scotty Henderson chose Shuswap Lake

Great property for relaxing time with friends while keeping privacy of 4 levels with lots of space. Also boat launch and beaches are right here as well.

Great location, right by the water. 2 kitchens, 4 rooms. The sleeping nooks were not great though, would not sleep in there.
Hot tub was big and clean with a great view.
Lots of room to park many vehicles.
Overall was good.

Beautiful view with some drawbacks

  • 3 of 5
First look at this house was dissapointing because we were under the impression that it was on the beach. (You do get beachfront property but it is across a busy road) In the add it also says there is lots of trailer parking (there is but it is day parking only). People might complain about all of the stairs but we were expecting them. The only other complaint i would have is some of the appliances should be updated. The dock was beached because of the low water season but we were able to use the members only dock right beside it.

During our stay we were very happy with the seperated layout. Even with 3 seperate familys we could always find our own space. The views are beautiful and there is tons of outdoor living area. Scott was very helpful with any questions we had once we were there and he wanted to make sure we had a great stay.

In conclusion if you choose this place to stay, then go with an open mind and you should have a great vacation.

Thanks Scott

Owner's Response: Glad you all found your space in the Lookout. It is meant for larger groups looking to spend some time in the Shuswaps lakes. The trailer parking is also located next to the property at the bottom. While not waterfront the place share a members only 2000 feet of waterfront with beaches and boat dock.

Desperately needs an update!

  • 2 of 5
We had a very similar experience as the other review submitted in July 2014. First of all I can say is stairs, stairs, stairs! After unloading 10 people's gear and food up 50+ stairs... You feel like you're going to die especially with no air conditioning in 30+ degree weather! I don't believe it also says that it is a semi lakefront property. With a private boat launch we assumed it was lakefront. Maybe we miss read that. We also had a problem with mice and bought our own traps as well. We caught two mice but think there was one trapped and dying or dead behind the lower deck kitchen stove. There was an awful smell coming from the stove that got progressively worse over the week. The kitchen table and chairs from the 60's need to go in the dump as the cushions on the chairs are broken and you almost fall through, therefore we didn't use those. The patio furniture is the same ones in the 2010 photographs and who knows how old they were in those pictures. The support straps on many of them were broken, so you fell through sitting on the cushions. The upper deck living room couch looked like it was torn apart and someone tried to glue it back together at some point. We barely wanted to open the windows in the hot upstairs bedrooms as they're missing screens. But it got so hot in the bedrooms that you had no choice but to risk creatures and insects coming through the windows. The property needs a little upkeep as it is over growing with weeds and has some garbage on it like old wheelbarrows etc. The Hammock in the picture is also overgrown with weeds and is unusable, unless you like getting poked in the butt with plants.

But of course with the little help from each family member, we made it a good trip anyway. It was nice to have everyone in their own sleeping quarters, giving everybody some space. It was also nice to have our own dock with our own little piece of beach. It was great to be able to bring our family dogs as well! They enjoyed the lake almost more than we did!

With a little TLC, some updates and some upkeep, this could've been a great place to stay... Even with all the stairs!

Owner's Response: I'm sorry Nikki you did enjoy your time in the Shuswaps. I did attempt to contact you 4 times but did meet your uncle and friends who said they were having a great time. Thanks for noting the damages caused, which now have been fixed with new furniture, cushions, antique chairs replaced and fans. As noted, the place is very large with 4 levels of living space and having parking for 7 cars does require stairs. The members only park with over 2000' of waterfront and having a boat launch, volleyball court, picnic tables and semi private beach with dock is a lot to ask given the price offered. To 30+c sunny summers in the Shu.

Not what we expected!!

  • 2 of 5
We recently stayed at this home. Although we made it " do able" it has been by far the least kept up vacation home I've stayed at over the past 8 years. We were quite surprised upon our arrival to see it is actually located across the street from the lake also to find we had to climb up about 50 stairs with all our belongings to find no air conditioning! There was one tiny fan in the basement and one located in an upstairs bedroom. The basement furniture was terrible, looks like dogs ate the couch and carpet was terribly stained. There are numerous mouse traps in the house and yes we did catch one! We also found a cockroach in the kitchen sink. We made good use of the top deck. Hot tub had no chemical and the filter looked as though it hadn't been changed in years. House needs to be updated and maintained to be comparable to other rentals on the lake! We cleaned it before we left and did loads of sheets and towels as per the cleaning sign in the kitchen although we were charged a cleaning fee. The pictures on this website are not quite what you actually see when you get there!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the update and glad to hear that you did enjoy the lake and area. I contacted you 3 times during your stay and wish I could have tried to correct short comings then. The place is very large with 4 levels and decks with vistas and is called the 'Lookout' and yes there will be stairs. As with wilderness areas along with bear, eagles and such sometime guests get in unexpectedly especially with hot weather doors get left open. The place is made for larger groups that can take toll on the place.

The Shuswaps all about decks, docks and boats. It is a peaceful, easy to love area just off the lake and backs on to endless mountains.
