About Phebe Westlund

We are a family of six from Surrey, BC. Otter Lake has been a place for our children to build memories with our friends and family. The times spent at Tulameen are moments we treasure.

Phebe Westlund purchased this Cabin in 2007

Why Phebe Westlund chose Tulameen

This is the ONLY lake we know of within 3.5 hours of Vancouver that has all year round activities including powerboat sports in the summer and skating on the lake in the winter and is located in a small friendly community.

What makes this Cabin unique

The historic kettle Valley Trail runs along the east shore of the lake which allows unsurpassed biking, walking and ATVing. The rail ties were removed a few years ago. Gold panning is also popular and Tulameen is very rich in history.

                                                          Natasha S.

                                                          This cabin is our ultimate favourite family getaway that's close to home and always the kids first pick for getting away. The cabin is gorgeous and offers every possible comfort. This area has the most amazing views and quading/dirt biking areas. This cabin has a rustic yet elegant feel to it, is always spotlessly clean when we arrive and is stocked full of everything we need to have a comfortable stay. We usually come in the fall as there is still lots of great weather to be had and the vibrant colours of fall are so beautiful in Tulameen. We have also stayed twice in the winter and it truly was a winter wonder land. Any time of the year we come to visit, the kids' only complaint is when we have to leave.

                                                          Amazing, beautiful, and peaceful winter cabin!

                                                          I had the privilege of staying on this property this past January, and this gorgeous cabin accommodated us in every way possible. With snow all around, we played hockey on the frozen lake, had a fire, and enjoyed some awesome winter vibes inside the cabin. The photos do not do justice to the beauty of the cabin and the surrounding scenery. On top of all this, the host was incredibly helpful in answering any questions we had leading up to our stay!

                                                          I will absolutely rent again in the fall/winter/spring seasons. I would especially recommend this to anyone looking for a perfect getaway from the lower mainland throughout the winter.

                                                          A fabulous retreat in a peaceful setting!!! Boating fun on a beautiful lake. Went kayaking and paddleboating on a peaceful lake. We brought our boat for hours of wakeboarding/waterskiing memories to be made. Our kids brought dirt bikes and explored the surrounding area. Exceptionally well equipped kitchen where gourmet meals can be made. Sleeping Accommodations were fabulous. You can rest by the water or on the deck or go grab an adventure! Beautiful walks or cycle into town to the General Store. We will definitely be coming back!!!
