Guestbook comments from the manager

By kelly (Vancouver, BC, Canada)

we had a great experience at this cabin. very well maintained and the owners are very friendly. it is secluded in the woods, a very large property so u do not hear the nieghbors around u. we brought our dog with us and he had a great time running around and the yard is so big he could be off leash and we did not have to worry about anything. i would recommend this cabin to anyone with a family or a couple looking for a nice place to rent. all the beds are in one spot in a loft so would not recommend to rent if u are looking for seperate bedrooms in the cabin. only 30 min away from whistler and other great places around the whistler area. i would rent this cabin again!

Lovely log cabin on Duffey Lake Road.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin and would definitely stay again.

The property has a partial view of Lillooet Lake and the beautiful peaks behind. It is above the highway, so there is some noise from that, although the lovely water sounds from Joffre Creek make it less noticeable. There are a few piles of debris around the property which detract from the general beauty of the property. We think this could be easily remedied if the owner took the time to collect it all and made a run to the dump. There is another smaller cabin on the property at the top of and to the right side of the driveway. People staying there have their own parking. (That cabin is far enough away to not be an issue with this cabin.)

This cabin has a great set up inside; nice wood fireplace, large kitchen area, lovely ambiance in the living room and loft areas with big windows showcasing the outside forest and views.

Minor issues:

There were a few minor issues, and I agree with a previous review that a notebook with general instructions would be great.

The windows do all open, but they must be unlocked on both sides first, and then the hand crank is used to open them (some of the hand cranks in the loft were broken, so we were unable to open those windows).

The plumbing under the kitchen sink leaks. There was a bowl under there, but watch it and empty it since it fills up fairly quickly.

The handle on the door that leads from the kitchen to the screened deck was installed upside down, so once you figure that out, the door will open easily without force.

The water flow from the bathroom sink faucet is low when the handle is turned to either of the far sides because the handle doesn't have room to fully extend upwards since the mirror with shelf above it was mounted too low.

Supplies:

There are plenty of wine glasses! (a previous review said there weren't any). And if you think you'll be using a large pot, then bring a large lid along (10 inches wide or larger).

We purchased self lighting briquets for the BBQ; these are much easier and safer to use than regular briquets with lighter fluid.

The only other thing I can recommend is to bring mosquito repellent! We weren't expecting any mosquitoes at the end of March, but they were especially vicious the night before a major rain storm came through! Thankfully the cabin has screens!

In spite of the minor issues, I would definitely recommend staying here since the positive far outweighs the above minor issues.

Gorgeous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the secluded cabin and the incredible scenery around it. It's about 40min from Whistler which manned it a great escape from tourist overload while still being close for excursions.
