Perfect location and accomodation for our four couples to enjoy cross-country skiing and snowshoeing combined with our own gourmet cooking. Kitchen well outfitted to provide all the pots and utensils required to prepare our feast. Very comfortable! We will return!

What a great place for our family vacation this year! The cabin was clean and well supplied with everything we needed. No unpleasant surprises! The beds were soooo comfy. I have not slept so well in a long time! There are lakes close by which we visited during the day and then we had a great time in front of the fire on the deck in the evening. I would recommend this spot in a minute to friends and family alike.

A lovely stay for 2 or 3 families
A lovely stay for 2 or 3 families
Two families with young children stayed at this lovely chalet over the Easter long weekend. The house was beautifully set up with plenty of room for privacy and group activities. The photos perfectly reflect the house. The huge wood fire was a hit with both grown-ups and children. Lots of games, a fully stocked kitchen, lovely warm beds, a barbecue on the deck - everything to make an easy weekend away. Hazel was very helpful in answering our questions prior to booking The chalet is close to some lovely walks and activities (Othello Tunnels, Manning Park, Hells Gate Airtram) and we would higly recommend this property for a group get-away not too far from Vancouver.

About the owner: Hazel & Peter owned an upscale B&B in Deep Cove, North Vancouver for 7 years. Their interior detail of the chalet has evolved over the years. Hazel had her own wholesale Textile business for 30 years and recently retired. The chalet has been a wonderful place to share with the many people that have come for Honeymoons, Family reunions and relaxation. Look up our link and take the Java 360 deg. tour of the whole interior of the chalet.
Why the Owner Chose Hope:
The proximity to Vancouver was the attracting feature for the initial purchase of the property. It is only an hour and 40 minute drive from North Vancouver with straight highway all the way. The chalet has been our haven of rest from the bustle of the city. The Alpine Park path that follows the Sumallo River is one of our favourite walks to start the day.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This summer a new faility will be available at Sunshine Valley with 2 pools, indoor and outdoor, a small restaurant and a liquor store. Aside from the wonderful easy hikes available, as well as mountainbiking, snowmobiling and quad trails, it has all the attributes necessary for a wonderful experience in the mountains.
