We will always remember our wedding at the lake - your lake house was perfect for our family. Grandparents, my sisters and their kids were very comfortable. The warm, natural feeling was amazing...

Large Comfortable Lakehouse

  • 4 of 5

Had a great family weekend at Jerry's lakefront cabin. He was excellent to deal with and cabin was clean and appreciated that he let us check in early as we arrived from different provinces. Kitchen small but efficient and well equipped. LIving room small but second one downstairs. 6 bedrooms with comfortable beds. New barbecue on large front deck facing lake.

Only complaint no outside lights which was a safety issue especially on slippery stairs at night and unstable, rocky toilet on lower level. That said enjoyed the carved furniture and natural wood theme decor. Would recommend this property. Loved the deer in the yard!

Priceless Family Time

  • 5 of 5

Time spent at the lake house was priceless. The breath taking view in the living room from the large windows was our first impression. The kids questioned the heated Floors? My husband was a very impressed with the large new BBQ. We watched the sunrise on the deck and the 2 deer sleeping in the grass. Wow! The canoe ride and the unforgettable fall colours were all beautiful pictures .

Very nice location

  • 5 of 5

We (4 families with kids) spent a very beautiful long weekend. The house is pretty nice. Ducks from the lake came to say good buy when we were going home. It was so cute.

Absolutely perfect for our summer family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely fell in love with this cabin. The log furniture and mountain décor made it feel so cozy. The open concept; large living room/kitchen was perfect for our evenings of games/socializing and preparing of meals. The dock and floating platform were perfect for swimming and the huge front deck was enjoyed by all of us after our day of fun. The complimentary canoe was perfect for exploring the lake, especially in the morning when the water is as smooth as glass. I highly recommend this cabin (felt like a home away from home) - we plan to make this family weekend at Jim Smith lake an annual event and will definitely be booking here for next year. Jerry was great to deal with and answered all of our questions.

Calm, family friendly lake

  • 5 of 5

Having vacationed in BC many times before, my wife and I decided to try taking the family to Jim Smith lake. We are very happy that we stayed here as everything was as expected and there were many amenities included that we didn't expect. Already cut and dry firewood is stacked under the stairs and netflix is available on all tv's, which the kids were very happy about. The kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms are particularly nice -- of note is the slate flooring, such a nice touch -- impressive fireplace and a view of the lake. BBQ available that cooks great steaks. The swimming from the dock to platform is a great way to cool off from playing/exploring outside all day. No motors on this lake means you don't have to worry about big waves or reckless drivers coming too close. This is a great place overall that we would recommend to other families.
