Wonderful vacation & hosts

  • 5 of 5

After considering several places to stay in the Shuswap area, and being new to the area, we (my wife and I along with our 4 year old) were very fortunate to have stayed at Bob and Joyce's home right on the lake. They made us feel instantly welcome! The guest suite is clean and has everything you need, and more (two beers in the fridge and a wine waiting for us upon arrival was a great bonus). We often cooked meals in the kitchen or used the BBQ provided for guests, located right outside our private exit that leads to the backyard and lake. There is plenty to do at the home itself, with a great dock and floating island. Bob helped our daughter fish for the first time too. Salmon Arm is about 30 minutes away, with a great provincial park across the lake, vineyards and lots of hiking/fishing spots in the Sorrento and surrounding area. There is also an air conditioning unit in the bedroom which worked very well to keep the room cool on the hotter summer nights. Wouldn't hesitate to book again!

Fantastic time in the Shuswap!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed with Bob and Joyce for 10 days this past summer (2014), we couldn't have asked for better hosts or a more beautiful vacation.

This home is located right on the water which was a godsend in the +30 deg weather we were experiencing at the time. Our hosts happily allowed us use of their canoe and we virtually lived on their dock, they have a small floating island that my teenage daughters spent most of their time on. This residence is conveniently located about 20 minutes away from Salmon Arm and is right in the midst of at least 10 vineyards (my wife and I managed to find a few..LOL). We made our own dinners in the guest cabin's kitchen and then dined with the owners overlooking the lake.

Be sure not to miss the cocktail hour, Bob insists on relaxing with his wife in the shade everyday at 3ish (or so it seemed). If you join them you may be lucky enough to see an osprey carrying a trout like we did or try your hand at fishing; my youngest caught 4 medium sized fish in about 2 hours, which Bob helped catch and release. Fantastic hosts, beautiful home - excellent location.

Only negative thing that we found was that the weather was so hot that the guest cabin couldn't cool off at night; Bob did find an oscillating fan however it had a hard time keeping up. A small inconvenience, otherwise no complaints at all. We will definitely be going back!
