Perfect Romantic Escape!

  • 5 of 5

It was immediately clear that Cathy has taken an enormous amount of pride in her property and 'love den'. The combined charm of the amenities, atmosphere, and environment can't be beat. Cathy clearly put a lot of thought into making sure everything was provided right down to a fluffy bathrobe, extra life jackets, and condiments in the kitchen. DVD movies, books, games are also a plenty! The brand new private dock is literally across from the MARS water bomber AND petroglyphs. Initially I wasn't sure about the privacy as there are houses nearby but the way the property is set it is very private and we barely saw a soul. I would really have to struggle to find a fault and I guess it would have to be the fact there is no closet space. I'm not a fan of living out of a suitcase, I like to nest :) Perhaps a small dresser next to the sink would be enough? Anyway, would we go back? YES!!!!!!!!

Lovely spot, but lacking important details

  • 3 of 5

The cabin itself is a nice, if small, space. The lake is divine- clear and beautiful. But the cabin was missing certain amenities to the point that it marred the trip. The cabin is touted as a "love cabin"- "perfect for couples". For the price, I was expecting some luxury. Yes, there is a big soaker tub, a cosy bed with a nice fluffy duvet, a good collection of DVD’s, and the pier is equipped with a comfortable, two person padded chaise. But there is only one bedside lamp, which is very dim, so only one person can read (with difficulty) in bed. There was only one wine glass- and it was plastic (I bought a couple of glass ones at a thrift store in Port Alberni to leave there, though I broke one immediately in the sink!). A polyester robe that absorbs nothing, and another robe thin as a hospital gown- wouldn't it be nice to have two fluffy terry-towel robes to go with that soaker tub? No pot scrubber, so we struggled to wash pans with a cloth. A thin fry pan so warped that it's difficult to even cook eggs. The heat plate on the bbq was so rusted it is crumbling. No place to put clothes besides a small bedside table- there are two areas on the wall near the door that could potentially have coat hooks, but there's nothing so everything we brought had to be draped over the one chair, or left on the floor. I'm no princess, and have made due with much worse. But as mentioned, for the price and considering how the place was advertised, I expected a bit better. I kept looking around and thinking how, for a few hundred dollars, that place could be made deluxe.

Great lake and location!

  • 4 of 5

The property was exactly as described and shown. Cute and charming. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks, the many eagles in the area as well the beautiful dawns and stunning sunsets. We enjoyed experiencing both lake pubs as well as a couple of hikes in the area.

An area guide (even a brief welcome/hello) would've been helpful just to know that there was a tennis court down the road for example or that there was a little grocers/liquor store across the lake. We found the kitchen area and bathroom vanity could use better lighting especially in the evenings and an updated cooking pan would be appreciated. The fire pit unfortunately didn't really work safely which was a bit disappointing but not a deal breaker for us.

Wifi was good. Neighbours were sweet. Host was quick to respond to all communications. We'd recommend it to friends and family and hope to return.

Awesome week on the lake

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous week on the lake. The weather was sunny, hot and dry which made it perfect for lounging on the dock, swimming, kayaking and relaxing. Just what we were hoping for! Hardly spent any time in the cabin. My one complaint would be the lack of comfortable seating in the cabin. There is only one single quasi comfortable chair. The dining table looks nice but the chairs are totally uncomfortable with sharp edges and no cushions. There is no longer a regular height table on the deck so we ate with our dishes on our lap. Not a big deal given our outstanding weather.

Quaint cabin on a beautiful lake

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the cabin from July 1 - 8, 2016. We truly enjoyed our stay. It's exactly as it's described...bachelor style one room with a great view of the lake. We had our own private deck and dock and use of kayaks. The lounger on the dock was perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine when viewing the sunset. A couple of minor mentions for those interested in renting: 1. There is no power outlet at the bathroom sink for curling irons, blow dryers or electric shavers. 2. There's not storage space for your clothes but if you are able to live out of a suitcase, there's enough space to house 2 large suitcases on the floor. 3. The cooking pan needs replacing as it's warped. Otherwise, the kitchen is well appointed and the BBQ works great. We even used the oven to cook pizza one night and it was great...oh, there's no pizza pan or cookie sheets so we had to improvise. 4. Their dogs like to come and visit so if you don't like dogs or are allergic, you may wish to mention it to Cathy before you arrive.

Our hosts were building a new dock on our last day there and it was a bit noisy but it was a rainy day anyway so we were okay with it.

There are 2 great restaurants nearby, one right on the same road that you can walk to or kayak. The other is on the far side of the lake and a bit far to kayak to but you can drive there in about 10 minutes. The far one is open year round whereas the closest one is only during the summer months. Great food at both.
