Guestbook comments from the owner

We will always remember our wedding at the lake - your lake house was perfect for our family. Grandparents, my sisters and their kids were very comfortable. The warm, natural feeling was amazing...

Bright Beautiful House with Large Lot

  • 5 of 5

Arriving at the lake house in the evening after a long drive was very easy to find as Jerry had the driveway plowed and the outdoor lights were on. We were very impressed with the large walkout and the fresh clean house. The kids enjoyed exploring the property as the lake house had plenty of room for our 3 children to run and play for hours in the snow. Thank you for supplying all of the extras we needed in the large kitchen. At night all of the bedrooms had new blinds to keep out the morning sun for my sleepy heads. Thank You Jerry for answering all of my questions when I booked.

Owner's Response: Thank you Susan for your excellent 5 star review! The Cranbrook Lake House is incredible for family ice skating on the frozen lake, sledding, snowmobiling and cross country skiing. Then enjoy hot chocolate by the cozy fireplace. The road is always plowed 24 hours 7 days per week as we are located on a school bus route. Our driveway is always shoveled for you. I sincerely enjoy helping great families build incredible memories together. Please let me know when I can help you again. Cheers, Jerry

Family Recreational Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Escape Away Cranbrook lake house is a large 6 bedroom house with everything we imagined. From the heated basement floors, 2 fireplaces, large eating area, kitchen supplies and large yard. The house was clean and supplied with plenty of fire wood for the fireplace. After a snowfall during the night a nice gentleman came and cleared both driveways, Thanks Jerry, We skated on the lake, walked the dogs and skied Kimberley. We are looking forward to booking our next stay in the summer. Happy New Year!!!

Perfect place for a family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We (various extended family members) have stayed here two Christmases in a row after the local family home was sold, leaving out-of-town members facing Christmas in a collection of hotel rooms. This was such a fantastic alternative - homey, comfortable, and with the unbeatable bonus of being in a gorgeous setting with immediate access to the outdoors. It's well-equipped, clean and (at least in winter) incredibly quiet at night. I would happily live here!

Jerry is a great host - helpful and responsive.

We call dibs on Christmas, though!

Large Comfortable Lakehouse

  • 4 of 5

Had a great family weekend at Jerry's lakefront cabin. He was excellent to deal with and cabin was clean and appreciated that he let us check in early as we arrived from different provinces. Kitchen small but efficient and well equipped. LIving room small but second one downstairs. 6 bedrooms with comfortable beds. New barbecue on large front deck facing lake.

Only complaint no outside lights which was a safety issue especially on slippery stairs at night and unstable, rocky toilet on lower level. That said enjoyed the carved furniture and natural wood theme decor. Would recommend this property. Loved the deer in the yard!
