Wake up to the call of the loons and close out the day with the most gorgeous sunsets. Enjoy our newly renovated (2011) cabin on the sandy shores of Little Shuswap Lake. The cabin has a master bedroom with a king size bed and a bunk room with a double/single bunk. Our open plan enables maximum family time - large area with a wood burning fireplace (and lots of split wood) and two seating areas that easily accommodate a dozen people, open at the front with wall-to-wall windows and sliding door on to the front deck and to the dining area to the side. The kitchen is open to the sitting area and allows a full view of the lake. The cabin has wireless Internet and cable TV.
We have a 31 ft Wilderness Trailer with slide-out in immediately adjacent to cabin on our adjoining lot and positioned horizontally to the lake to allow a full view of the beach. The trailer offers a separate bedroom with a queen size bed and separate entrance as well as a convertible bed and pullout bed that are suitable for two more. The trailer has two sinks and a bathroom with toilet and shower. All water, plumbing and electrical come through the main cabin service so there are no power or water levels to worry about.
The interior and the exterior of the cabin were completely renovated in 2010/11 and the 300 sq ft rear deck, 400 sq ft upper front deck and 400 sq ft beach-level deck are all brand new. There are patio tables/chairs on both front decks, chairs and small tables on the rear deck and 3 teak sun lounges on the beach. The rear deck is perfect for morning coffee - the sun is pretty dependable and is on the deck very early. The upper front deck is shaded by large Ponderosa Pines and the lower beach-level deck is open to the sun from mid-morning until it goes down behind the hills in the late evening.
The south end of Little Shuswap Lake is known for its wonderful beach and the sunshine is very reliable. There are though occasions when an afternoon storm can create some of the most dramatic vistas including sometimes spectacular wind and waves.

A gently sloping sandy beach leads to the crystal clear waters of the lake. The shores are shallow and warm to a lovely temperature in the sun. There is a rowboat and a canoe available for your use. Walk down the beachfront or run the trails alongside the quiet road. Bring your power boat along and pack a picnic for a day of exploring the 1600km of shoreline accessed by cruising up the Little River and into Shuswap Lake. You can include a stop at Copper Island for a hike, a fantastic view of the lake and a swim. With drink in hand, enjoy a rousing game of bocci ball in the sand. Have a wiener roast followed by a the classic beachside dessert - s’mores (time-tested recipe in the cabin) or just some lovely quiet time around a crackling fire (we have pre-split lots of wood and guarantee you won’t run out). If all this sounds like too much work, spend the day lazing on one of our lovely teak lounge chairs with a book in hand. The choice is yours....morecollapse
