About Lynne and Henry VanLaarhoven
We are a retired couple with kids and grandkids that visit every year. We retired to the Cariboo because of the rugged beauty, peaceful lifestyle and the wonder of nature. We absolutely love it here!
Lynne and Henry VanLaarhoven purchased this House in 2016
Why Lynne and Henry VanLaarhoven chose Cariboo L
This property is the only private residence for rent on Hathaway Lake. The lake has crystal clear water suitable for swimming, boating, fishing, skating in the winter and more. The property is easy to access with paved road all the way but still a private natural wonderland to play in. It is only 4.5 hours from the Fraser Valley which is an incredibly beautiful drive through the Fraser Canyon. For more info visit
What makes this House unique

The house has been recently renovated and provides 2 huge decks to relax on while watching the kids play. There is even room for your dog (conditions do apply).

Fun for all ages!
The cabin is cozy and spacious with various areas to sleep in. An added bonus was the kids area downstairs where they could play games and romp around. The lakefront view was spectacular, especially during a couple of thunder storms at night where we would view the lighting under the covered deck. The kids loved hanging out on the dock with two ducks that visited daily. Not to mention catching dragonflies,frogs and fishing for minnows. They even have a canoe that we were able to enjoy. The fish weren’t biting as much as we would have liked but we did manage to have three fish dinners during our one week stay. They were delicious. Best we’ve ever had in fact. We had a few visits from a friendly fox and even caught glimpses of a local bear. Overall, we had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended. Thank you Lynn and Henry. We hope to make it back next year.
