Hi Guys

Just wanted to let you know that we totally enjoyed staying in your suite at Sproat Lake in August.

The water was probably warmer for the large size of the lake than any my wife and I have been in. We found the layout of the suite very suitable for our needs and the furniture very comfortable. Your property has a wonderful ambiance of a forest setting with great views out onto the lake. It was great having a private dock just for the suite rental where we could tie up our ski boat and get some shade on the many 30+ days under the dock gazebo awning. We would definitely recommend staying here for a great summer vacation.

Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hi Again! Just a quick note to say how Wonderful this spot is. We had a fabulous time here with our 2 year old daughter, and hope to make it back next year. On to the review ... the suite was immaculately clean and well cared for. The owners are friendly but not "in your face" so you can relax and enjoy your time there, and the beach was beautiful. We had a mix of weather, everything from scorching hot to rain and we a great time everyday, regardless. The private dock for the suite was nice so you could "set-up" for the day and leave your things out without feeling like you were in the way/sharing with the owners. They had a large cloth on a portion of the beach which was AMAZING for our daughter. She could walk in the water and play on the cloth, sit down etc. without sitting and crawling in rocks all day. Definitely an asset for the toddler/young child group who like to play in the shallow part. They also had a sand box right on the beach that she loved to play in. I would highly recommend this spot!

Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

This location on Sproat Lake is Fantanstic, South facing and in my opinion the quietest part of the lake. I have stayed in all areas of the lake and will choose Stirling Arm for our next vacation . The suite is exceptionally clean and well laid out for a couple as the pull out couch is in need of updating , a week sleeping on this would is not something you look forward to on vacation . The main bedroom bed is a dream to sleep in.. There is an area for a tent which would be more comfortable. The dock was great for swimming and just enough room for 4. The owner was doing maintenance to the home during our stay and we were not expecting to listen to power tools at prime time of the day.

Perfect Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Hi folks, just wanted to thank you for another fabulous stay again this year. The kids had a blast and of course so did we. The weather was gorgeous!! The beds are so comfortable and thanks for putting out the tent for the girls and the party dock. They loved it. Can't wait for this coming summer!!!

Uncomfortable sleeps with bug problems.

  • 1 of 5

We stayed here for 2 of 5 nights at the end of their 2014 season. Both the queen bed and the hideabed were incredibly uncomfortable. There was a drain fly infestation as well. The owners were not present, although we knew this would be the case for the first two days. We left early because of the bug problem and because the beds were causing us to not have a comfortable nights sleep. When we tried to address the issues with the owners, they implied we left because of the poor weather and that nobody else had ever complained about the beds. We asked to be reimbursed for some of the money we paid outright for the week. The owners said no, they would offer us a couple of nights next season instead. We have no intention of returning to subject ourselves to restless nights on the poor beds they provided. Beware of the pictures, not all the pictures they show are areas available for guest to use. Very disappointed with our experience here and with the owners. We feel ripped off. We do not recommend this place

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I originally had my concerns about renting a space where the owners were present on the property, but when I look back on our vacation having Glenda and Harvey there only added to our experience and we still had plenty of privacy during our stay. Our kids who are 7 and 9 years old had a fantastic time and have a ton of fun memories. We will definitely try to book again next year.
