                                    The owners are most accommodating! The house is lovely and welcoming. There's an outdoor sitting area and the view of the lake is lovely. It's so quiet and secluded yet the family is nearby on the property so respond with alacrity to all reasonable requests. The swimming is great, albeit not so much come November. Lots of wildlife all around, fox tracks on the deck one morning! We've used this cabin many times and will continue to do so in the future.

                                    This was our second visit to the cottage and I can not think of anywhere else I would rather be to sit back and relax. Hoping to get another few days before the winter

                                    Wonderful stay with friends from Vernon (we came from Prince George). Beautiful views and swims in the lake were highlights. Our 4 year old had a blast exploring. Hopefully we will be back next year so our now 9 month old can enjoy it.

                                    What a fantastic place to stay. We wanted to get away from it all and this was it. It is the best location I have been to for peace and quiet just as advertised. The cottage is lovely, just like a home from home and was spotlessly clean. The lake is awesome and plenty of fish to catch. Looking forward to going again. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to wind down and relax.

                                  Year Purchased: 2009

                                  About the owner: We are a family that loves the outdoors and discovering special aspects of the natural environment. We get great enjoyment from sharing the wonders of our unique ecosystem with visitors. This rock we found is in a perfect sunny spot and is always warm to sit on rain or shine! Our favorite picnic site.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Lone Butte:
                                  We searched for years for a place where we could waterskii at any time, having gotten tired of the over crowded lakes. At first site, we knew this was the perfect place for us! There has been a huge amount of work to reclaim the old buildings, but the effort has been very rewarding. The property was once orignally a cattle ranch and then became a fully operational Gold and Precious Metal mine. You will find many precious stones and fossils. The neighbors in the valley are wonderful, always willing to lend a helping hand.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
                                  We have the serentiy and privacy we crave, yet we are close to the Big Lake community where there is a post office, library and store. We also can head up to Likely where they also have these but also a great little restaurant with the best fresh made Club House sandwiches you'll ever have!
