LOG COTTAGE IN PRISTINE WILDERNESS WITH PRIVATE LAKE

Lumby House Rental Photos and Description

sleeps 2-6 people, private lake, great mountain views, porch, BBQ and canoe

Our 2 handcrafted log cottages offer lots of privacy and breathtaking views of the mostly snow covered Monashee Mountains and the rolling hills, forests and private lake of our ranch, covering over 600 acres. Each cabin consists of an open living/dining area with a fully equipped kitchen, one full bathroom and a separate bedroom. A large sleeping loft overlooks the living room.

Sit back on your covered porch to enjoy your private BBQ taking in the sunset and views. A cozy wood stove provides comfortable heat on cooler days. Green electricity comes from a solar power system.

The cabins are within walking distance to the lake where you can fish for rainbow trouts.Or start your trailride or hike right from your porch.

Paddle out on the lake in our complementary canoe and watch countless birds and waterfowl such as bald eagles, ospreys and many different ducks.

Our ranch is home to lots of wildlife such as bears, coyotes, deer, elk, moose, marmots and many more for you to enjoy

hiking in the Monashee Mountains: hiking in the Monashees is an unforgettable experience as this is still true wilderness with glacier fed lakes and snow covered peaks and lots of wildlife to view

canoeing or kayaking on the shuswap river: The shuswap river is one of the most versatile rivers around with calm sections for unexperienced paddlers as well as whitewater for the kayaker.

fishing for rainbow trouts: fishing opportunities are countles, catch a rainbow trout in our lake or any of the surrounding waters, such as Sugar Lake, Echo Lake or the Shuswap river

THE MOST MAGICAL PLACE ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
The magic of Bear Valley starts the minute you leave Highway 6 and take the road up through the trees and into the mountains. We have seen plenty of wildlife on our journey upto the cabins including Moose and Deer. The cabins are clean warm and cozy and the hospitality warm and welcoming. There are stunning views from the cabins, fantastic sunsets and its definately the place to go to unwind from your stresses in the peaceful surroundings. We found there was plenty to do even on a winter trip. Hiking, exploring, watching for wildlife or even relaxing on the deck with a BBQ. Lumby also has plenty to offer and is a short drive away, there is a supermarket, restaurant, swimming pool and much more. Each time we have left Bear Valley we have left a piece of our hearts behind. Thankyou Joe, Barbara and Family for sharing your beautiful home with us and we are really excited about returning again in 2010 (twice!)

CLEAN, COZY, COMFORTABLE, CALM

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Bear Valley Highlands twice now and will return again and again. Our family of 5 really enjoys the peacful, quiet surroundings. It is a great place to just sit back, relax and unwind. If you enjoy stargazing, it is an amazing place to sit and watch the night sky. Our hosts are welcoming and friendly, always making sure our stay is comfortable. The cabins are immaculately clean and well set up. I have and will continue to recommend this property to friends and family.

URLAUB IN HERRLICHER NATUR

  • 5 of 5
Wir moechten uns nochmals bedanken fuer die herrlichen vier Wochen die wir bei euch verbringen durften. Eure zwei Blockhaueser liegen in einer einzigartigen Natur. Daher ist auch ein Aufenthalt mit Kindern hervorragend geeignet da kein Autoverkehr auf dem riesigen Anwesen stattfindet. Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundliche Leute wo man mit jedem Problem hinkommen konnte sofern eins auftrat. Da man ja dort Selbstversorger ist kann man auch sehr schmackhaftes Fleisch aus eigener Zucht kaufen. In Vernon ist auch ein deutscher Baecker wo man auch mal etwas besseres Brot kaufen kann als wie es in Canada sonst gibt. Wir haben auch alles so vorgefunden wie auf ihrer Angebotsseite beschrieben war. Den TV haben wir ueberhaupt nicht vermisst da man bei schoenen Wetter immer etwas unternehmen kann. Wenn man mal dringend eine mail senden moechte braucht man Barbera nur Bescheid sagen. Das sollte ueberhaupt kein Problem sein. Nur das Wetter muss man so nehmen wie es kommt. Fuer Kinder duerften auch die paar Tiere auf dem Anwesen interessant sein. Fuer uns war der Hund " Wanja " die Kroenung. Man kann viele Ausfluege in der Umgebung machen und darum wird es nie langweilig.
Unsere paar Wochen vergingen wie im Fluge und dafuer moechten wir uns nochmals beu Barbara und Juergen bedanken.

Mit freundlichen Gruessen aus Berlin

Gisela und Klaus

WUNDERSCHÖNE LOCATION UND PERFEKTE BETREUUNG

  • 5 of 5
Der Aufenthalt auf Bear Valley Highlands war definitiv das Highlight unseres Kanadaurlaubs!!! Wir haben uns in der urgemütlichen und perfekt ausgestatteten Blockhütte in herrlicher Landschaft superwohl gefühlt. Alleine schon der atemberaubende Blick von der Terrasse ist unbeschreiblich und wir hätten noch einige Tage mehr gebraucht um die Ranch und Umgebung zu erkunden. Die Wanderung zu einem Gebirgssee auf Empfehlung unserer Gastgeber war ein ganz besonderes Erlebnis. Von der Buchung über die liebevolle Betreuung vor Ort bis hin zur herrlichen Location in atemberaubender Natur war alles perfekt - Tausend Dank!

URLAUB MIT VIEL NATUR UND ERHOLUNG

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben eine Woche im Sommer 2012 im Rahmen einer mehrwöchigen Reise in Bear Valley Highlands verbracht. Die Unterkunft und die Umgebung entsprechen 100%ig der Beschreibung - alles ist gut ausgestattet und sauber. Es war eine sehr schöne Zeit, viel Natur und Ruhe, aber auch abwechslungsreiche Möglichkeiten für Unternehmungen in der Umgebung mit netten Städtchen (Vernon hat uns besonders gefallen) und (Wasser-)Sportmöglichkeiten. Die Eigentümer waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie wohnen in der Nähe auf dem Grundstück und standen stets mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Wenn es um die Planungen von Ausflugsmöglichkeiten oder den Einkauf ging, haben wir wertvollte Tips erhalten und insgesamt eine rudum tolle Zeit dort verbracht.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank fuer Eure nette Bewertung, fuer dieses Jahr haben sogar unsere Wanderwege auf dem Grundstueck neu markiert und ganz neu sind auch zwei Kayaks zur Benutzung auf dem See!
Zur Zeit leben wir allerdings in einem Winterwunderland mit jeder Menge Schnee und den Langlaufskiern gleich vor der Tuer!
Vielleicht macht Ih Euch ja mal wieder auf den Weg ueber den grossen Teich, wir wuerden uns freuen.

WO KANADA AM SCHÖNSTEN IST

  • 5 of 5
Cabin mit Flair und sehr guter Ausstattung. Tolle Lage. Natur pur. Aussicht auf schneebedeckte Gipfel. Am Himmel zieht der Adler seine Kreise und nachts jaulen die Kojoten. Barbara und Jürgen haben alles getan, damit wir uns wohlfühlen. Der Urlaub war einfach super.
