We enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. It is so quiet and peaceful here. The cabin was especially nice, very clean and comfortable. The views from living room were brilliant. The canoeing on the clean lake was just wonderful. Thanks for nice stay. W. Schmidt, Germany *****

Beutiful property in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Mike has a really lovely authentic log cabin which is on 200 odd acres of farm and forest land with lake shore access to gates lake. Beautiful location to get away from it all and includes free use of floaties, canoes, paddle boats and a private dock on the lake. The cabin is comfortable has all you need - full kitchen, shower and bathroom etc. My wife and I have stayed here twice now and will keep coming!

Wonderful secluded cabin to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a quiet tranquil place for my family of 4 to get away from it all. It was everything it said it would be and more. The property was stunning with the surrounding forest, well maintained and very private. The lake access was a convenient short walk away.

We canoed to the other side to fish near the public beach.

The cabin was cozy and comfortable and had all the everything we could ask for. ( Bring your own towels).

We did several day hikes including the waterfall, Joffrey lakes, Birkenhead lake park and made the drive to Pemberton to enjoy the Blackbird bakery and the Upick farm.

My kids 10 and 11 loved it and definitely want to go back next year. We will cherish these memories for years to come. Thank you.

Canadian comfort

  • 5 of 5

A great place to set up home. We are a New Zealand family that stayed with a 4 month old and a 22 month old. We all loved the lake nearby and made use of the pedal boat, row boat and board (life jackets provided). Our 22 month old was most impressed by the trains, and we had plenty of warning it was coming and felt safe although it is nearby and not gated or fenced off. No trains during the night time while we were there. Cabin was cool during the day and cosy at night and the little ones slept great. Amazing place to stargaze and catch a shooting star. Kitchen had everything you would need for cooking and good BBQ too. Pity we missed the rodeo up the road, but we were busy anyway, maybe next time. All up a great place to stay.
