Our property provides the athmosphere of a private secluded summer residence with beach. The cabin is on a hillside overlooking our lake front pasture and our private bay with beach. The location is very private with a beautiful deck where you can enjoy the sunset over the mountains.
The cabin is 1300 sqft of very liveable space. It was originally built in 1995 with an addition added in 2009. Natural wood is the main materal throughout. Part of the cabin has cedar board walls and on the outside the siding is also natural wood. The main floor of the cabin consists of a spacious living area with sofas, an open kitchen, a large bathroom, a bedroom with walk in closet and an entrance with laundry utilities.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size stove and oven, side by side fridge, dishwasher and microwave. From the main kitchen window you have views over the lake.
The living room has a TV (just for playing DVD's since we have no satellite TV), a stereo with Ipod station a couple of sofas, a desk and woodstove.
The bedroom has a king size bed and an open walk in closet.
The bathroom has a free standing clawfoot tub, a shower, toilet and sink with lots of space to store items.
The entrance with laundry has closets and a washer and dryer.
An open loft is accessible from a staircase between kitchen and living room. In the loft there are two double beds.
A large deck wraps around two sides of the cabin with gorgeous views over the pasture, beach and bay. Tall trees surround the cabin.
Take a few steps off the deck to a short private path that leads you down to the pasture and beach. In the boathouse you will find life jackets and noodles and some water toys. On the beach you can use our kayaks and canoes for explorations of lake and shoreline (no charge). There is also a swimming platform with ladder for a private sun tanning or for jumping into the lake. There is an older dock (please watch your steps) that provides a place to tie up a boat. Across the lake there is an island to explore and within a short hike also a waterfall. The property is a total of 100 acres and offers trails for hiking and exploration. Watch the Ospreys and Bald Eagles fish in our bay. There is always lots of wildlife around. Have fun!
In the winter you can usually snow shoe from the cottage. There is lot of wilderness to explore. Enjoy the back country and mountains with your snow mobile (please watch the avalanche reports). There is a lot of terrain in the Selkirks and Monashee mountains that is just used by our local snow mobil enthusiasts or find some hidden x-country trails. Winters are magical around the Arrow Lake with moderate temperatures and a lot of snow in the mountains. Backcountry ski exploration is a lot of fun.
Well behaved dogs that stay on the ground (not on sofas, beds etc.) are very welcome and if they do not run after wildlife can be kept without a leash. There is so much room to run around for dogs and with our rock bluff to the north and a meshed fence to the south it is quite safe. Our resident puppy dog Schoko is very friendly.

Hi, my name is Sabine and I love to share our property with guests. It is just my husband Ulf and myself sharing our property with our guests and we usually do not see each other aside from on the beach.
Why Owner chose Central Kootenay K
Our family fell in love with the Kootenays and our property in 1990. It was the location, climate, the beach and lake, the long summer seasons the clear water, fishing and space that we loved. We raised our kids on the property and since they have left to other parts of the world like to share the beauty of the place.

Clean, spacious, and secluded!
Perfect getaway. Absolutely zero complaints. Just enough privacy to feel secluded with a great view of the lake. Will definitely be returning.
Great Cabin beside a beautiful lake.
The swimming area was great for the kids and the walk down the hill from the cabin was safe and easy. If anything, it added the the "adventure" while going for a swim. Great availability of kayaks, canoes and standing paddle boards. All in all a great experience, we will definitely be back!
Very rustic private retreat. Everything you need to have a great time!
Perfect Peaceful Holiday
We stayed at the loft cabin for 4 nights and loved it!! The cabin is tucked away in the woods with beautiful views. It was well stocked and clean and exactly what we were looking for. There were 2 dogs and a horse on the property that our kids quickly fell in love with. The beach is so private and peaceful and being able to use the canoes, kayaks and paddle board was great and a huge hit for us and our kids.
We will definitely make this an annual tradition and can't wait to go back!!
It was everything we hoped for.
We had an amazing weekend at this cabin. The property and lake is awesome, and the cabin is very rustic yet modern. We had lots of privacy, but a short trail to the beach allowed for conversations with the owners. The horses and dogs were really cool by the beach. The view from the cabin was incredible, especially at sunset. We are sure to come back! Thanks.
It's a Lovely Place
We really enjoyed our stay! Thanks Sabine.
Everyone has described this cottage really well... clean, awesome view, easy load in to cottage, well stocked etc... It was definitely as advertised.
Speaking of well stocked...
lots of everything... nice soft face cloths and towel
Soaps, etc.. incase you forget yours
Sheets and bedding ... very clean and nice
I could go on and on...
Here are some of the extras I would consider bringing:
Books and magazines
Binoculars - sure wish I had brought these... so much to look at
Good Chef Knife
Extra BBQ lighter
Coffee - Your Fav Brand - They did supply emergency coffee which was very thoughtful
Extra TP & Paper towels
Extra Garbage bags
Outdoor table cloth with clamps
Beach Towel & Blanket for Beach
Blowup float devices
Plastic Glasses for the Beach
Big Beach Bag
Snorkle and mask
DVD's for evening
Beach Shoes or flip flops
PS: Ice cube trays are in the cupboard
Also: only saw a couple of mosquitos ... and never got bit.
If I were to offer advice...
Take the canoe to the small island and waterfall on a calm day... IMPT... be sure to watch for changes in weather because you do not want to be crossing the lake when it gets choppy.
The Property is Not well marked and it is easy to drive right past...
Its location is not far after you get off the Needles Ferry... Make sure you clock your car's milage.
And be aware that the address number is on the Gate which is on the right side of the road... very small and hard to see... there is no signage on the main road.
Also... the owners were super-helpful if you needed anything, but they also really gave you your privacy, which we really appreciated
If I had one suggestion for the owners, whom are lovely... please let me suggest that you should consider purchasing some taller patio chairs so that you are able to better take advantage of the amazing view.
Thanks again... And travellers... hope you have a great time.
The area surrounding our property offers a lot of wilderness. The Selkirk Mountain range is located to the east with glaciers and alpine lakes, extensive hikes and a lot of wildlife. Fauquier (3km) offers a beautiful 9 hole golf course and a general store with gas station to stock up on necessities. Depending on the season we have fruits and nuts in the yard. Across the lake the Monashee Mountain range offers small and big lakes great for fly fishing The natural Hot Springs are the main attractions in our valley. There are some undeveloped and two developed Hot Springs in the area. One free pass per person to the Halcyon Hot Springs are included in the rent. In the winter time the area is known for superb snow mobiling, heli skiing and downhill ski adventures. (Revelstoke Mountain Resort, Summit Lake ski area and Whitewater in Nelson). We love to explore the trails in the backcountry by snow shoes. It is so quiet.....
