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 Abbotsford

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!

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.

Beautiful cottage by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Darlene for sharing your piece of paradise with our family. It was the perfect spot for our family while out there for our son's wedding. Your home is clean, wonderfully decorated and maintained with beautiful furnishings - the beds were extremely comfortable! We spent lots of time on the great deck and then we were lucky enough to rent paddleboards from Laura and borrow a canoe from friends. Wish we could have stayed longer - even though it was almost 2 weeks! Hope to see you again soon.

2nd Great Visit

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in 9 months - absolutely terrific. My active family of five (kids' ages 17, 15, 11) were up in Canada for my son's regatta on Whonnock Lake. While my son was racing (with me cheering him on), my wife and 2 other kids were off exploring Mission BC. Your property is so accommodating and comfortable for all our needs. The beautiful lake, lots of day hikes nearby, proximity to town, excellent wi-fi and cable tv for night entertainment. Love the deck - we ate dinner (which we cooked in your excellently stocked kitchen) outside each night and it was sooo peaceful. Great hot tub.

We had such great weather, being on your beautiful lake was awesome. While kayaking about, I saw lots of fish jumping, and the local neighbors were so friendly. Nice dock plus a great zero entry driveway for easy access and launch of personal boats / watercraft.

We also took advantage of several of the many awesome trails and spent some serious time hiking. So many fabulous hiking trails nearby, easy or hard (depending on what you're looking for), waterfalls, lake views, wildlife and birding - really terrific opportunities to get out and see the natural beauty of BC. Wish I knew how to include the video we took of the waterfall and suspension bridge we saw on one of these hikes.

Being close to Mission and Maple Ridge (8-10 minutes to either) provide all the amenities of city life. We spent most of our time hiking or on the lake, not dwelling in the city, but it was easy grocery shopping so we could use your awesome kitchen to cook family meals.

Thanks again for providing a terrific property. We'll be back for another adventure soon...

Xmas on the Lake

  • 4 of 5

My family of 6 stayed over Xmas. The boys loved the outdoor spaces. Even though it was cold and rainy they were still out on the water on a kayak. We enjoyed the hot tub and listening to the stream run beside it. We had lots of visitors and there was ample parking. The kitchen had everything we needed to host. The bathroom was beautifully upgraded. Many a board game was played at the dining room table that was large enough for our family. Close to shopping and amenities. Highly recommend this cozy cottage.
