For the last 29 years I have owned a travel agency in Vancouver BC. We started running the cottage rental program at La Casa in 2012 and have been working with the Guest House since then. I am still working in Vancouver and caring for my property with the help of our onsite staff. My family has worked with me at La Casa in the summers for the last 3 years and we have enjoyed sharing the resort with family and friends who absolutely love the resort.

If you are looking for one place..thats not a condo or a hotel..to be together with your large extended family or friends from different places then this may be the right place for you. If you are looking for a place away from it all where there is swimming, hiking, riding trails, a place for a boat, tennis, or sleeping in the sun..then this might be the right place.
The building used to have a restaurant on the top level which I converted to living space in 2013. I have been told by guests that staying in the Guest House is like having your own private hotel. Plenty of private spaces and large common areas for socializing. The place is very 'kid friendly'. No need to take your shoes off or worry about breaking fine china. Simple, clean and fun. I also kept much of the commercial bar equipment, banquet furniture for parties or events. The large banquet room on the main level remains intact for guests who want to host a wedding or other large event. The other unique benefits are the views from the huge decks and guests have access to all the resort amenities.
I rented this beautiful mansion as we all called it for my 50th birthday party weekend. We arrived on Friday while Bruce and Wendy were still cleaning but this did not bother us for we had an early check in. The pictures do not do this mansion justice you truly have to see it in person.
There was 12 of us so plenty of room but we did utilize all 7 bedrooms. The elevator had broken down a few times but it was quickly fixed. The main floor has an office that staff from the resort came and went, there was a 120 seat theatre that we utilized twice with their supplied movies, you access this on second floor where the project for room is located on the bunk floor, one room had 4 twin beds and the other 2 twin beds. There is a tv living room area and bathroom with separate shower room. Main floor had 4 bedrooms with queen and double beds. 2 washrooms with showers. Kitchen, living room area, dining area and games area with fireplace, top floor the best suite with hottub on deck as well. Full fridge microwave coffee maker walk in shower. King bed.
Bruce and Wendy were excellent And thanks to Bruce we were able to watch my birthday video on his laptop. They were accommodating to all of our needs.
Some of my guest thought I paid too much for 3 night stay I however feel it was so worth it to have family and friends under one roof,
The Lakeview unbelievable. A huge deck with chairs tables BBQ.
Will be returning again,
Word of caution roads are very winding lots of wildlife but worth the drive.

Overall, it was a great experience having our wedding at La Casa Guest House. All of our guests were extremely impressed with the house, and some expressed wanting to have their weddings or family reunions at this venue/house.
The house was clean and well-maintained. Unfortunately, it was fruit-fly season in the Okanagan, so there was a lot of fruit flies in the house. We were extremely careful with putting away dirty dishes, putting the garbage outside, and setting fruit fly traps. This seemed to help the situation throughout the weekend.
The owners and property managers were helpful, and answered any of our questions. For any person considering this location for an event/wedding, it would be important to have really good communication with the staff working at La Casa. Yvonne set clear expectations of what we needed to do, and also accommodated some of our requests.
If you are planning an event/wedding at the Guest House, it is important to keep in mind that most/all of the set up and tidying needs to be done by those renting the space. I would not suggest this location for people who expect work will be done for them, you have to be willing to put in the time to set up and clean afterwards. I would also highly suggest anyone renting this space for an event/wedding have another day at the end to avoid the panic of cleaning up. We rented La Casa Guest House from the Thursday to Tuesday, which allowed for plenty of time to set up, clean, and enjoy time with our guests and family.
Myself and husband are happy with our experience at La Casa and would recommend this property! Definitely a great place for your wedding!
We had a great time. In fact we have booked for the next two years. Thank - you Brad and Yvonne for everything. I would recommend the Guest House to others for many different occasions. Location is great it was clean and well maintained. Everyone loved it.

I've waited far too long to write this review!! Our big multi-generational family (ages 2 - 85) had a wonderful Christmas here. We were able to eat dinner all together around one big table, have enough space to hang out together and plenty of space to be alone too. The kitchen was well set up, the beds and bedding were very comfortable. I think the big hits were the pool table and movie theatre, a LOTR marathon or watching old home movies on the big screen was very fun. Dianne was very helpful and the staff was super easy to deal with. They even had a Christmas tree and decorations for us. I highly recommend this place and hope we can come back again sometime.
The guest house at la casa is absolutely amazing. The caretakers were excellent and very friendly. I would have gave it a five star if it wasn't for the below listed
1) the was no air conditioning in 3 bedrooms on the main floor. My guests cooked at night.
2) the pool sticks for the pool table were in really poor shape.
3) we were unaware that the cleaning crew for the resort uses the house for storage ect. It was strange seeing unknown people at the house all the time.
4) we had a few people try to enter our vacation home thinking that they had use/ access to it or thinking it was a restaurant.
5) the lake play ground was not set up ( blow up things) the kids were disappointed
6) the store wasn't open two of the foue days we were there.
7) some of the doors don't shut properly so it was difficult to keep tabs on my toddler.
8) there is a set of stairs off of the main deck that cannot be blocked off from lil ones going down.
Having said that, these things are really quite minor compared to how amazing this place really is. A few minor fixes and this place would be a five plus star. I want to add that the elevator is perfect. We had our wheelchair bound grandma with us and it was so easy to get her around!!!
From the time we first booked La Casa for our friend`s bachelor party the experience was 5 star. Dianne was extremely helpful in answering our questions (and they were a lot). The house is truly amazing, the pictures on the website don`t do it justice. Each and every guy who attended the weekend had nothing but great things to say and we`re already talking about planning a return trip. I would recommend this for anyone trying to plan a weekend away with a large group (not just for a bachelor party).
Access from the resort to hundreds of miles of trails connecting to Bear Creek trail system. Boat slip rental available with this property.
Cleaning Fee of $400.00 applies to all overnight stays. Extra charges may apply for weddings or events where more than 50 guests are likely to attend. Equipment rental for weddings and events is available.
