About Karen Eastland
We entered the vacation market in the Spring of 2017 and we are so pleased to have earned a 5 Star rating across the board, in all portals. Over the years, while we lived there, we nurtured and developed our Home into a place where our Friends and Family could come to enjoy all that the Shuswap has to offer – summer and winter, and to relax and restore. Now we are extending that invitation to you! We look forward to hearing from you and beginning a relationship that will be built around your Shuswap adventures and your stay at The Big Ease. Our plan is to offer workshops and retreats in the shoulder seasons. The first one will be a song-writers workshop this Fall. The Big Ease will also features local artists work. We are delighted to be providing them a venue for to showcase their creations. We look forward to hearing from you. Warm Regards, Clay & Karen

Why Karen Eastland chose Sicamous
The Big Ease is unique offering of peaceful surroundings, interior and exterior, with plenty of room to enjoy Family and Friends. The "Why" is answered by our guests - check out our reviews!
What makes this House unique
In the past, we hosted numerous parties. It was as if there were six of seven different gatherings going on at the same time. Some folks would be in the living room, while others could be found sitting in the garden, playing guitar by the fire-pit, visiting on the veranda, karaoking downstairs, playing bocci in the yard or poker in the kitchen. Need I say more!:))

Had a great stay
Great hosts and a nice place!
Exactly what we needed
There were two families that stayed in this magnificent place while we were there. A total of 5 kids under the age of 4 had everything they could ask for during our stay. They were very excited to see the stream and wooded area behind the property, and loved exploring everything it had to offer. There was also ample green space for them to runaround, ride their bikes and just be kids. The house had lots of space for all of us and it never felt like we were on top of each other when space was needed. We were even left a high chair and pack and play during our stay, which is always nice when you have to pack less things for your trip.
The distance to the golf course (less than a km) was ideal for us to get away for a quick round and the calm tranquility in the evenings was refreshing. Check-in and check-out were seamless and appreciated since we had enough to worry about with all the little ones around.
Wonderful family vacation spot
My family and I had a wonderful time at the big ease! Karen was very responsive and great to deal with.
Would recommend this to families looking for a quiet spot, but still close to everything!
Thank you Jennie! It was a pleasure hosting your Family.
This property was the perfect location for our family reunion. Everything was advertised accurately. In fact, we were overwhelmed with the attention to detail in every room, deck and outdoors. The kitchen was better equipped than some domestic homes I’ve cooked in. The bathrooms were stocked and what we did run out of, we found downstairs in the laundry room, there again stocked.
Every bedroom had a ceiling fans, more closet space than I have so everything could have it’s place. Beds were comfie, linens (including towels bath/kitchen) good quality. Extra blankets and pillows.
The location was serene. The lake was visible through the trees at one spot but a very short drive away. The view from the large deck was soothing for the soul. Rolling hills in the distance and friendly cows meandering around the field next door. Sun sets in full view of the deck and when the stars come out . . .superb. We were counting on take out for first night but was encouraged by our hosts to have the last car coming through to pick up in Salmon Arm. We chose Jade Buffet of China and had the best take out Chinese food we ever have had.
Fire pit was laid out to comfortably to accommodate the 14 of us with no fear.
The peace and serenity experienced in the ‘secret garden’ as we dubbed it was exactly what we needed from time to time. The rest of the time spent was full of lots of noise and we didn’t have to worry about disturbing anyone (other than the dog next door at the farm LOL)
Next time if the reunion works best in Sicamous area, I wouldn’t hesitate to visit the Big Ease again.
Thank you Karen and Clay
Some people just touch your Heart! Cindy and Family are definitely those folks. From first contact to end of stay it was a pleasure. It was delightful to see how much they enjoyed The Big Ease and left everything in perfect order.
Fantastic Guests and we hope to welcome them back soon.
Great cabin with lots of space!
We had a great time everything was exactly how I thought it would be 10/10 would rent again
Great place! Great view, awesome deck and convenient location!
Nice and clean and comfortable. Loved the location and it has a great view from the deck. Lots of room for the kiddos to run around inside and out. Also very close to public beach and amenities but far enough away that it's nice and quiet too! Overall awesome place!
Thank you Aislinn,
It was certainly a pleasure hosting you and your Family. It is our delight to share The Big Ease for Friends and Family to gather!
GPS does not get you to The Big Ease, it confuses the directions.
We are one turn off the Trans Canada Hwy 1. Turn south onto Old Spallumcheen Road and travel 3 km. We are on the left hand side of the road. (There are 2 left forks in the road but continue to stay right) Follow the signs to golf course.
There is a sign at the driveway that says Eastland.
