Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A unique character home in a private setting on beautiful Ruby Lake. This well equipped, comfortable home is a scenic 40 minute ferry ride from Vancouver and an hour drive up the Sunshine Coast Highway.

Enjoy quiet romantic evenings in front of a roaring log fire having cooked a gourmet meal in the fully equipped modern kitchen. Or, perhaps relax on the large deck overlooking the lake whilst enjoying a glass of wine and a BBQ as you watch the sunset over the beautiful and serene Ruby coloured lake.

The ground floor offers two double bedrooms, one with a full 5-piece en-suite and the other with an adjacent modern shower room. There is a laundry area fitted with new front loading washer and dryer appliances; laundry detergents, an iron and an ironing board are also provided. A basic kitchen area allows preparation for food to be enjoyed outside as you sit with family and friends around the fire pit on the front lawn. Or, if you prefer, you can snuggle up on the leather sofa in front of the log burner in the 'snug room' with a book from the wide selection offered on the bookcases.

Downstairs also has an expansive area for storing bikes, kayaks or whatever holiday gear you and the family bring along with you.

On the main floor is the large master bedroom suite with a jacuzzi bath and shower. A fully equipped kitchen with gas stove opens onto the main living room with TV, stereo and DVD player. A grand open fireplace, vaulted ceilings, picture windows and hardwood floors compliment the living area. A separate dining room with farmhouse table and chairs for entertaining allows access onto the spacious deck.

The deck is equipped with a gas BBQ and a full patio set which seats six. The perfect spot to enjoy the views over the lake, whatever the time of day.

This character home has everything you need for a wonderful, relaxing and memorable holiday.

Great Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect, everything was neat and tidy when we showed up and had everything we needed for a great weekend away. The property was beautiful, though we spent the majority of our time on the dock because the lake was so nice. Lisa was very helpful with organising our trip and made the entire transaction process as smooth as possible.

Wouldn't hesitate to come back!

Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to discover this beautiful cottage on Ruby Lake.

The cottage is well equipped and beautifully decorated. It is close to so many hiking trails, each one offering different breathtaking views. Because we were there in April, we had the lake almost to ourselves. Canoeing around all the little islands and inlets was a joy.

Lisa was a great help with tips for grocery shopping, hiking etc, always answering our inquiries quickly.

We still have lots left to explore on the Sunshine Coast and would not hesitate to stay here again!

Beautiful clean lake, well stocked and comfortable home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our time at Ruby Lake. The water is perfect for swimming and paddling in. We paddle boarded, kayaked, and canoed around the shores. We found the rope swing on the far side of the lake, whoohoo!

Your home was welcoming, comfortable, clean, well organized and well stocked. It is also HUGE! Next time we are bringing more friends and family to stay. The back porch is lovely for coffee in the morning to catch the first rays of the sun, and later in the day to get out of the heat. The sunny big deck is perfect for barbecues and dining. (I would love to see a lounger or two on the deck for those of us who want to read a book in the sunshine.)

Would recommend going to Ruby Lake Resort to watch the beavers in the lagoon.

We are so grateful that you allow pets. Our fur baby enjoyed her swim time too.

Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Hope to return soon.

Relaxing home-away-from-home

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, clean home is fully stocked with everything you could ask for in a vacation home. 3 Comfortable beds, 3 bathrooms, washer & dryer, 2 living rooms, air hockey and foosball tables, large kitchen stocked with everything you could think of, gorgeous views of the lake from the large deck. The linens, towels, tableware and furniture are all high quality and in excellent condition. There is only a 60 second walk from the doorstep to the lake where you can spend all day in the warm water. There is a fire pit to warm up by after your evening swim (firewood is provided).

You can tell the people who own this home truly love their home and want you to also. We stayed for 3 nights and it wasn't long enough.

I highly recommended a hike through Skookumchuk Narrows Provincial park at high tide and the Westcoast Wilderness Lodge - their patio has breathtaking views!

A fantastic property in a truly magical location

  • 5 of 5

Ruby Lake is a magnificent location with almost no rentals available but this property is a real gem! Lisa and Jim could not be more helpful and the property is well equipped with all that you would need for a family vacation by the lake. Ideally positioned for boat or canoe access and adjacent to one of the nicest spots on the lake. We enjoyed early morning swims and days packed with activities on the lake or exploring local hikes which are all easily available from the cabin. The well equipped deck overlooking the lake is a great spot to enjoy a meal and drinks. The local town has all that is required for a great vacation. The cabin is beautifully appointed and has all the amenities both inside and out to truly enjoy this magnificent location. My wife and I had a fantastic vacation here and will definitely be visiting again!
