About Monica / Brandon
Our son was about a year and a half old when we purchased the cabin. We were just starting to build our family and agreed that having a cabin/vacation home would be perfect for building great memories and having amazing family vacations together. We enjoy boating, fishing, ATV'ing, snowmobiling, hiking, having camp fires and simply playing outside. We have since had twins and having the cabin has been amazing!
Monica / Brandon purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Monica / Brandon chose 70 Mile House
We chose this property for many different reasons. We loved that it backed onto miles of trails and this meant that we would not have to load up any of our recreational vehicles to go riding, we could just ride out the back of the property which was a huge selling feature for us. Having small children we liked that the cabin was across the street from the lake and not right on the lake for safety reasons. The fantastic thing was that we have a view of the lake! The cabin itself has a warm cozy feel to it with loads of character and has everything we need as a family.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Not very clean (previous renters are to clean), no screens for fresh air
It’s a place to sleep, very chopped up, low ceilings
Hi Cynthia, I saw your review of our property. I was wondering if you would mind letting me know more details. We have someone coming in to check & verify that our cabin is clean before the next guests arrive. We were told it was clean. I would like to know specifics in what wasn't clean so that I can make a few inquiries with the previous renters as this will effect if we rent to them again.
As for screens for fresh air, there is only one window in a bedroom that does not have a screen. All the other windows that open have screens.
I'm sorry to hear that your guests did not find our cabin to be enjoyable. This is the first time we have had any complaints in the years we have rented it.
I appreciate your review & letting us know of the issues so that we can work on improving it.
Great location, clean,well maintained,lots of room
We were very greatful to rent from Monica . We had our first reunion on Green Lake our niece lives 10doors down, The property is well maintained, the house is clean and there is lots of room. Although we did not have children, when they visited they loved all the toys and the trampoline. They provided a very well stocked kitchen, although we did miss a microwave. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioning was a great bonus as it was one of the hottest weeks up there. The beach is just down the road great walking distance . Green Lake was so clean and beautiful We had a great time and hope that we can rent again next Aug for our 2nd Family Reunion. Maria
Thank you for your review Maria. So glad you enjoyed our cabin! I have a microwave that I will be bringing to the cabin our next trip up, so if you stay again it will be there.
Loved being here - very close to a small beach that we would go to in the evening (we went to another, larger beach during the day). House is very quirky, which we loved with all kinds of spots to go and relax (the room with the recliners became "my" reading room). Monica and Brandon are great to deal with. We had an issue with the electricity and they were on it! Great people to rent from, great place to stay.
Thank you Cynthia! So glad you ladies enjoyed our cabin.
Lovely, comfortable property, beautiful setting
We loved our stay at Monica and Brandon house on Green Lake. Their place was perfectly suited to our little family of 4 and everything we needed for our month long stay. The kids enjoyed the back yard, the lake and all the toys at the house and my husband and nanny and I enjoyed the porch, BBQ, all the amenities and prestine surroundings.
Monica and Brandon are also very kind hosts. They offered to change their plans and let us stay another week when our next rental property fell through due a wild fire evacuation order, which was very considerate of them. I would highly recommend their property for both long and short term stays and will definitely book with them again. Thanks Monica and Brandon for your hospitality and sharing your lovely home.
Great comfortable house with lovely hosts
Our family stayed at Monica and Brandons place on Green Lake for almost a month while working in the region. The house was wonderful and suited us perfectly. We have two toddlers who loved all the toys, the yard to run around and the trampoline. The lake is right across the road and with West facing views- the sunsets each evening are spectacular. The house is spacious but cozy and has all the amenities and everything you need for a short or long term stay. We were out on the patio using the BBQ many evenings and were very happy with the convenience of having a washer and dryer and fully equipped kitchen.
Monica and Brandon were also very generous hosts and offered us to stay an additional week, cancelling their plans to come up to their place, because the next house we had booked to stay in was on evacuation order from a nearby wildfire. It was very kind of them to change their plans and let us continue our stay until the evacuation order was lifted.
I would absolutely recommend their place, as a vacation space or long term rental, it is suited to both and will would certainly book again. Thanks Monica and Brandon for your thoughtful hospitality.
Thank you Dawn for your lovely review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay! Looking forward to any future rentals with you. Take care.
Quaint and Quirky home in a great location
Our family stayed here for a week at the end of June 2016 and had a wonderful time. The home was clean and had what you would need. The beach access was literally only a 2 - 3 minute walk and you basically have your own little beach. Riding trails out back for a bit more experienced rider but we just rode 1 minute up the road to the Green lake trail access. Our gracious hosts were great and checked in on us via text during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and that there were no issues. We were a family of four - 2 adults and a 12 & 13 year old. There is no TV or wifi but we enjoyed trying some of the games and reading some of the books that were available and of course making smores around the fire pit out back. We just brought our portable dvd player and the kids their hand held games for some filler down times and the drive up and back. Thank you Monica and Brandon for an enjoyable stay - we would love to come back again.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the great review! We hope you will come stay at our cabin again. You were really great renters & left everything very clean. Thanks again for renting our cabin.
Hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!

Green Lake has 5 Provincial park sites. The lake itself is absolutely breath taking. The clear green and blue colors of this beautiful lake is what we fell in love with. A wonderful place for vacationing families.
Annual Watch Lake/Green Lake Fishing Derby held the first weekend in June. Tons of prizes and loads of family fun!
Green Lake/Watch Lake Gymkhana. Held twice each summer on the second Saturdays in July and August. The word gymkhana means "horses at play", and that's a great description. Both novices and experienced riders compete in skill testing and often outrageous events: the boot scramble, musical tires, barrel racing, stake races, keyhole races and more. There's concession stand and 'Bavarian Garden' under the aspens.
