          Car: Necessary

          My cabin is # 1 and is located in a quiet area of Totem Pole Resort, separated from the beach by an 8 foot strip of lawn. You must park near the store in a specified parking spot and take your belongings to the cabin in a large wheelbarrow, hence no traffic at all nearby. The deck is very large and becomes the living space as the view is incredible--lake and mountains.Amenities at the Resort include a store,a gas dock,a swim dock,a swim raft,boat launch, buoy for your boat,tennis court, 15 kms.from Margaret Falls and beautiful campground.26 kms.from a Coop grocery store(and gas) and 40 kms from Salmon Arm, which has many amenities including golf courses,miniature golf,waterpark and museums. There are metal barrels on the beach in which bonfires can be lit anytime(for wiener roasts,Smores and more)!Paddle boards for rent at the store.Also some pizza nights and special dinners at the store!


          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2003

          About the owner: I'm a retired Nursing Administrator,grew up in Sask.moved to Calgary where I lived for 45 years.Am now living in Edmonton with my husband of 8 years.

          Why the Owner Chose Tappen:
          I couldn't resist buying this property as it's in the most beautiful area . My son has a cottage down the beach about 2 blocks and the owners nearby are so friendly. The weather is usually great and this place gives one such a sense of peace.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          My favorite place is the large deck. When you are sitting on it,you can't see the strip of grass,only the water. I say it's like being on a houseboat except without the wave action!I spend as much time as possible there.
