About Darlene

I have utilized the creativity and sweat of many friends and hired help, to renovate this beautiful piece of mother natures creation. I open my home to friends and families to enjoy this peaceful spot.

Darlene purchased this house in 2000

Why Darlene chose Vancouver Coast

The view from the open concept living area with the majestic mountains in the foreground and the tranquility of the waters from a private lake makes this an ideal vacation property. You can enjoy the views from two levels of outdoor decking.

The creek passing by the 8 person hot tub will create the natural sound for your relaxation.

What makes this house unique

This property has a boat launch for those with a small water craft or canoe, kayak or stand up paddle board. It is located at the mouth of a small stream. Guests can paddle from the secluded private dock 100 ft to the open calm waters. Don't forget your floaties, beach towels and flip flops!

We had a fantastic time!

  • 5 of 5

Darlene's place is extremely cozy and makes for a wonderful mini vacation! The house is comfortable and the view is gorgeous. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked, everything we needed was provided! My friends and I stayed here for new year's, and we found it to be a great place to relax, play a few board games and go on some great walks. We were lucky enough to get some beautiful fresh snow as well, it was completely picturesque! Thanks for a great little holiday, we loved every minute.

Beautiful View From Great House

  • 5 of 5

What a great home and great property! Our stay was very peaceful and quiet, and we had great weather. The view of the lake was beautiful, and Darlene's tip to rent kayak's from Laura was spot on! Laura had them delivered to the house, and the views while kayaking on the lake were beautiful. Such a peaceful and relaxing trip, and the visit from 'Girl Cat' was icing on the cake for my wife. Thank you for making your house available to us!

Beautiful ,relaxing , comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Darlene's Lake House. We were there for a family wedding and spent the whole week visiting between 10 siblings. Wine and dinners shared on the big comfortable deck. A Blue heron visited most days around lunch time. Our last evening there, a family of raccoons was spotted climbing one of the trees. There were 6 adults and the cottage was perfect and spacious, very comfy beds. View of snow capped mountain tops. Highly recommend it .

Memorable Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Darlene was super friendly and responsive from the beginning 'till the end. She went out of her way to help guests achieve a perfect getaway. I found the mattresses in all three bedrooms very comfortable, the bedding and linens were of high quality. The bathroom was remodeled with good taste. The kitchen was fully stocked up and had a whole cabinet full of spices of all kinds. And of course, we enjoyed the lake very much and missed the genuinely relaxing feeling just watching it from the front deck every morning and twilight while having our meals. And since you are in Mission, do yourselves a favor by visiting the Cascade Falls and its new suspension bridge. It's a gem usually overlooked by tourists and it's FREE. Even the scenic drive towards it from Darlene's place is well worth. And also, thank you Darlene for the half-priced tickets of the Fly Over Canada ride, our family had a good time together.
