Central Kootenay H House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, comfortable living-dining room with sofa bed, up to 6 people, kitchen

The two-story log cabin is handmade from local tribes. On the ground floor there is a spacious living / dining room with sofa bed, coffee table and a dining table with six oak chairs. The well equipped kitchen invites you to cook gourmet meals. The bathroom with shower, sink and toilet is also located in the basement.

On the second floor a large bedroom with a comfortable queen-size bed and a second room with two single beds. The cozy, natural bed content, and the quiet location make for a restful sleep. Through the sliding door you come to the large sun terrace, where you can enjoy the beautiful mountain and lake view. Thanks to the comfortable garden furniture, you can enjoy meals outdoors. On the lawn in front of the house is the fireplace, where you can watch the starry sky on a romantic campfire. Next to the house from the wide flower garden and behind the natural forest.

The surrounding area:

The log cabin is situated on a 13 hectare park-like plot with fantastic mountain and lake view .. It does not pass-road through the property, so it is absolutely quiet. Sometimes you can observe wildlife directly from the terrace. Smaller walks start right outside the front door.

The house is located 1 km south of Silverton and 1. 9 Km from the main road. On a forest path you can walk in about 25 minutes to Silverton, which is the smallest village in British Columbia. Since there is a food shop and a café that defines this. The locals here are very friendly, it's easy to come in's conversation with them.

In Silverton there are several beaches where you can enjoy a swim. With a rented canoe you can look for a nice place for a picnic.

A boat-trip to the opposite Valhalla Provincial Park can be arangiert. There you can go hiking, see spectacular waterfalls and 6,000-year-old Indian pictographs visit.

Idaho Peak:

The over 2200 meter high mountain peak with the old fire watchtower, is a popular viewpoint. The 360 ​​° panoramic view of the Slocan Lake and the surrounding mountains is spectacular. The alpine meadows are beautiful. From the ghost town of Sandon out, a 12 km long dirt road leads to a high-altitude parking. From there leads a 1. 5 Km long tightrope walk up through beautiful alpine meadows, to the summit. We recommend for this road a vehicle with high clearance, or even all-wheel drive. This also applies to many other high-altitude hikes in the area.

We can advise you in planning your excursions and hikes.

Your hosts:

We, Karin and Bruno Burgermeister emigrated from Switzerland to Canada and live for over 20 years on this land.

We made our dream come true and are drawn from the largest city in Switzerland to the smallest village in British Columbia.

We have made our hobby into a profession and act with crystals, minerals and fossils. In the gallery on the property, we show and sell stones from around the world.

Spectacular Place!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this wonderful log home. The Slocan lake view was such a treat to have every evening. We was supposed to go to Revelstoke after 3 days here and loved it some much we stayed an extra night and would have stayed longer. If you are looking for a very peaceful place to stay this is the place. Silverton and New Denver are quaint little towns. The Nikkei Internment camp is great.. We are hikers and did the Alps Alturus, Idaho Peak and Mount Buchanan all spectacular. The cabin was perfect and the beds are marvelous. We came home and ordered the same beds for our home. The cabin was immaculate, the deck was wonderful and perfectly furnished and so quiet. Karin and Bruno were just delightful to talk to. New Denver has a great little grocery store and ice cream shop across the street (yummy). There are several little shops to check out and the sunsets down by the lake are fabulous, and just 5 minutes from the cabin or just walk out you front door and and sit in a chair by the fire ring at the cabin and you have the perfect sunset view. If you are looking for a peaceful, friendly place to get away you must stay here!!! We will be back!

We had an amazing time. The lake and mountains were beautiful, small towns surrounding the resort were fun to explore, people friendly, roads great and the actuall resort had all you would need: nice facilities, nice deck to enjoy the view, campfire, BBQ, full kitchen and bedding clean and in a great condition.

We loved getting to know the owners and hearing some of their stories. Do take some time to chat with them!

We fell in love with the place and are hoping to come back again.

Wieder ein traumhafter Aufenthalt !

  • 5 of 5

In diesem Jahr waren wir zum zweiten Mal im Blue Sky Resort und es war wieder traumhaft!

Die Hütte befindet sich in idyllischer Lage mit Blick auf den See, ist gemütlich eingerichtet und sehr sauber.

Karin und Bruno geben einem wertvolle Tipps für die Umgebung( Wanderungen, Dinner, etc) und sind sehr tolle und hilfsbereite Gastgeber.

Das kleine Resort( 4 Blockhäuser ) ist Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge zum Idaho Peak oder die angrenzenden Provinzial Parks.

Vielen Dank für den tollen Aufenthalt, wir kommen sicher wieder vorbei!

Slocan Lake Blue Sky Resort

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben nach Ferien im Winter und Herbst an diesem Ort diesmal fünf tolle Urlaubstage bei sommerlichen Temperaturen im Blue Sky Resort verbracht. Wandern, Schwimmen, Kanufahren und Golfspielen waren diesmal im Programm. Blue Sky Resort ist dafür die ideale Basis. Die urgemütlichen Blockhäuser mit den dicken Stämmen bieten viel Platz für eine grosse Familie oder zwei Paare. Wer Ruhe, Berg- und Seesicht in einer parkähnlichen Umgebung sucht, ist hier am richtigen Ort. Karin und Bruno geben als Gastgeber gute Tipps für Ausflüge und Aktivitäten. Besonders erwähnen möchten wir die Sonnenuntergänge auf der Terrasse und am Grillplatz.

Ferien im Paradies für die ganze Familie

  • 5 of 5

Im Herbst 2011 haben wir zum zweiten Mal schöne, erholsame und abwechslungsreiche Ferientage im Blue Sky Resort verbracht. Bereits 1995 waren wir, mit unseren damals noch kleinen Kindern, während zwei Wochen zu Gast hier. Wir waren so begeistert, dass wir beschlossen, mit unseren mittlerweile erwachsenen Kindern, an diesen traumhaften Ort zurück zu kehren. Ein weiterer Grund zur Rückkehr waren aber auch die freundlichen und zuvorkommenden Gastgeber des Blue Sky Resorts, Karin und Bruno. Sie waren immer sehr hilfsbereit und versorgten uns mit vielen interessanten Tipps und Ratschlägen zur Erkundung der Umgebung (Kanufahrt über den See zum gegenüberliegenden Nationalpark, tolle Wanderungen, Baden in heissen Quellen, Biken, Golfspielen, Ausflüge nach Kaslo, New Denver und Nelson, Besuch des Wochenmarktes in Silverton, die schönsten geheimen Badebuchten am Slocan Lake und vieles mehr). Neben all den Aktivitäten haben wir aber auch die Ruhe, die Natur und den fantastischen Ausblick auf den Slocan Lake und die umliegenden Berge, im Blue Sky Resort sehr genossen. Die Cottages sind geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet, die Zimmer sind geräumig, alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Oft sassen wir auf unserer Veranda und konnten manchmal auch Rehe auf der Wiese davor beobachten. Das Blue Sky Resort ist ein kleines Paradies und ein echter Geheimtipp. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

Silverton is on Slocan Lake in the Slocan Valley, in the Kootenays, in south-eastern British Columbia. The valley with its deep blue sea and the snow-capped mountains, is traded as a hot tip. The clear lake invites for swimming, canoeing and fishing a. The three surrounding provincial parks, paradisiacal with the high mountain wilderness and alpine flower meadows, are ideal for breathtaking hikes. The hot springs around are great for relaxing. The silver boom of the 1900 century is reflected in the Western-style of the building and in the museums of Silverton, New Denver and the ghost town of Sandon. In addition to restaurants and various shops, you will also find galleries with works of numerous local artists (5-10 min. Driving time). With the nearby town of Kaslo one of the last paddle steamer is to visit (45 min.). A visit to the historic town of Nelson, with its Victorian Archidektur, is recommended (approx 75 min).

Other Activities: canoeing, snowshoeing

Golf: The nearest golf course is located in New Denver (journey time 15 minutes).

While the course has only 9 holes, but golfers say that it offers a real challenge. The place has its own restaurant with a beautiful lake view.
