A great spot for young families

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for one week over the past two summers and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The cottage is beautiful, with great swimming off the dock and wonderful views. There is a small sandy patch on the beach, and with the shovels and pails provided, our toddler spent many hours by the water, and our other children built some fantastic sand castles. Inside, we had everything we needed - coffee filters, tea, spices, bandaids, books, movies and board games. There are kayak rentals nearby and my husband took the kids over to check out Copper Island. Lorie and Richard are absolutely fabulous and were so welcoming and helpful with their advice, as well as awesome with the kids. We will miss this place next year when we are in Toronto.

Shuswap perfection

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this place! This past summer was our 6th time staying here. We keep coming back as it's such a comfortable, clean, beautiful place. It really is perfect! The hosts, Lorie and Richard, are awesome people and a pleasure to get to know. They take much pride in their property, and it really shows.

This was our second year renting this lovely suite - it's so peaceful and relaxing. The suite is fully stocked with everything you need from spices to band-aids to board games. The owners have gone out of their way to ensure that you have a great vacation - they are very friendly and always available to answer questions or suggest places to check out. We have a 2 year old, and there is a beautiful beach very close by, as well as a big park and a general store for ice cream. There is something around here for everyone. I have to mention that this place has beautifully treated concrete floors that keep the suite cool even when it is scorching hot outside. The ceiling fan in the bedroom, coupled with the sound of crashing waves = the best sleep ever. Plus, the big bbq is awesome - we bbq'd every night we were there. We are hoping to return again next year - I'm already looking forward to it!!

Simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We got really lucky finding this place! The view is amazing, the house is amazing, the water is amazing, and the owners are just wonderfully fantastic people!! The communication with the owners while booking was great. The house has pretty much everything you need, even a mini sewing kit!! My kids, aged 1 1/2 and 2 1/2, slept the best they ever have there! There are playgrounds nearby, quick drive to get groceries or ice cream. Lots to do for anyone. The scenery is beautiful everywhere you look! We really can't say enough about this fabulous place. We had a fantastic time and definitely will be back!! Thank you to the wonderful owners!!
