2 Bedrooms Log Cabin On 16 Acre Reclaimed Wetland with Ducks Unlimited

There are two bedrooms and two full bathrooms—the downstairs bathroom has a large Jacuzzi bathtub, and the upstairs bathroom has a shower. In total, this cabin rental contains three twin-size beds and two double beds.

The rental is gorgeously decorated in traditional log cabin fashion, with warm woods and an impressive stone fireplace. The cozy living room features two plush couches in front of the fireplace and large picture windows with a stunning view. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are all conjoined in a spacious open floor plan. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances, including a dishwasher, a coffee maker, and a microwave.

Located in picturesque Coldstream, British Columbia, this Canadian glamping site is surrounded by a peaceful and rurally charming country setting. Coldstream is home to Kal Beach, which is located on the shore of the stunning Kalamalka Lake. Guests here will feel completely submerged in nature, yet this property is conveniently just 10 minutes from downtown Vernon. In Vernon, glampers will find a historical museum, many larger than life historical murals, shopping and dining. This property is also just a short drive from a ski resort, a golf course, and a trail for backroad cycling.

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every way. Well setup with everything you could need. Porch was a great secure area to crate our dogs at night. The yard was an exceptional playground for our working border collies. We had 30 degree days and the cabin was cool inside. Such a relaxing place to come back to each day after working our dogs in Lee's camp and trial. A little piece of heaven.

Lots of space inside and out, especially if you have kids

  • 3 of 5

My husband, myself, and our adult daughter stayed for 10 days in July 2017. We enjoyed the birds and other wildlife from the large windows over looking the back yard. Although we did have to give it a good cleaning to fully appreciate eating at the table right beside it. Lots of humming birds!! The deck was a bit neglected and the sunroom was unusable as the furniture, was too tired and dirty to enjoy. Fridge was not clean inside. At one time I'm sure the flower beds and plantings around the house were lovely but are now messy and over grown. Noise from the road was somewhat annoying at times. We did enjoy the country setting and it was nice not to be overlooked by neighbors. Not too far of a drive to Kal Beach or to the hiking trails.

Peaceful and private retreat

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about our recent stay at Mary Ellen's and Bill's home. It was just what we needed. Mary Ellen was quick to respond to all our emails and texts. The house is well stocked with everything needed to make your stay comfortable. It is only about five minutes to the closest mall where you can stock up on food and other necessities. We would love to come back and stay here again.

Perfect cozy getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the long weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We spent the days skiing in Silveratar and our evenings in front of the log fire. Perfect family cabin in a beautiful location. The beds were clean and comfortable and we all felt at home. We would defiantly chose to stay here again.
