A wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Mara Sands and it was one of the best vacations we have had as a family. The cottage is clean, had everything we needed and is a very short walk to the beach (you are still dripping when you get back from the water). There is so much to do in this area...sandy beaches, waterfalls, wineries, nightly fishing, the Enchanted Forest, dock diving and sliding, kayaking, golf and dinners with views... we can't wait to return next year!

Lakeside Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

I've been bringing my family here every summer for about 4 years now and still think it's one of the best deals in the Shuswap. Whether you're in to boating, golfing, hiking or just sitting on the private beach enjoying the sun, you can't beat this location. The cottage is located in a quiet gated community with a white sand beach and huge dock (with boat slip). Kids will enjoy the diving board and waterside on the dock, while parents enjoy letting them run wild and be kids in a safe environment. It's an easy drive to Sicamous, Salmon Arm or Vernon/Kelowna and an easy commute through the mountains from Calgary. The place is always spotless when you arrive and the owner will meet you there to get you set up and show you around. After that your hardest decision is whether to do steaks or burgers on the barbecue. Anyways, highly recommend this to anyone looking to get away from the city and wanting somewhere that feels like home. Make sure you book early though as most times they're booking a year in advance.

Vacation at the lake

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxing week at the lake. Has all the comforts of home, very clean, and only 15 min out of Sicamous for shopping. The beach is great for kids - both sand and grass areas to enjoy. Boat slip perfect for bringing your own boat. Boat launch is right next door in the provincial park and gas is available nearby as well so very convenient.
