Super Home

  • 5 of 5

I live in Big Canoe and rented this home for two work colleagues while they were in town a few days. It was their first time to visit BC and they were awed by everything the community offers, and their stay at this home just added to their experience. We also used the kitchen area for laptops and work, so I was also at the home most of the time.

The house is very well taken care of, very clean, and even though it's close to the fitness center it feels tucked away--although it's not warm enough for the beach and pool to be in use.

Be aware that the driveway is steep (but short).

The owner responded immediately to my last-minute request for the property and we emailed back and forth a few times. Very responsive, and we had all the info we needed related to the home, etc. Super home, centrally located, super clean--would recommend it to others and would rent here again.

4.5 bathrooms=10 ladies dream vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This year our annual retreat brought us to the Roost, and we could not have been more pleased. A great view of the lake, lots of room to spread out with plenty of nooks to have some alone time, and easy access to hiking made this weekend a wonderful one for us! We had a mix of single and married ladies, and the space worked well for us! We also found the local IGA grocery store charming and had everything we needed. Also - I recommend the mexi-mule at Fuego's - a great way to kick off the weekend!

Gorgeous relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property was not only quaint, professionally decorated and located on an idealistic wooded, lakeside setting but was able to accommodate 2 families very comfortably! Would highly recommend and would love to stay here again!

Well equipped and comfortable reunion location

  • 5 of 5

The Roost was our home base for three nights while we celebrated a family wedding in Big Canoe. Unfortunately the rainy weather kept us from enjoying the decks or anything else outdoors in Big Canoe, but I am sure the home is a wonderful place to be in good weather. The beds were very comfortable and we had plenty of space. Our only "complaint" would be that when we arrived, the house was 47 degrees since no one had rented it recently. It would have been nice if the management company had turned the heat on that morning before we arrrived. It took several hours until it was warm enough to take off our coats. But once we warmed up, we enjoyed having the Roost as our weekend home.

We had an amazing time at this cabin. The view was breathtaking, it is in the perfect location. The owner, Dusty, is ver helpful and very prompt in responding. We went right after Thanksgiving and the weather was perfect and nature was absolutely beautiful, very fall like. The Cabin was beautiful, very clean, and complete with everything. All you need is food and drinks. We will definitely be returning customers. :)
