About Helen and Andrew Sheppard

Andrew, Helen, Andreas and Mica would like to welcome you to our Guest House.

SnowDrifters Guest House has been a dream of ours for many years, as we both grew up and lived in the Rocky Mountains, we knew that the mountains would always be our home. We have lived and played in these mountains for over 10 years now. Revelstoke has a warm sense of community, incredible skiing and laid back lifestyle that made us choose it as the perfect place to pursue our dream. We look forward to meeting you and sharing our experiences, as well as being a part of yours. Thank you for considering Snowdrifters Guest House as your home away from home.

Helen and Andrew Sheppard purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Helen and Andrew Sheppard chose British Columbia Rockies

Revelstoke is a charming town that has loads of outdoor opportunities year round. In the winter months there is amazing access to cross country and alpine skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. The summer months are great for hiking , mountain biking, water sports and riding the "Pipe Coaster" at RMR . Whether it's apres ski your after or just winding down with your family at the local aquatic center there is fun for everyone.

What makes this apartment unique

Our Guest House -2 bdrm suite is unique with what we are able to offer our guests. With our private entrance and exclusive same party rental you have both the privacy of a suite and the opportunity to obtain valuable local knowledge from your hosts.

What a great place to stay! Everything from the quiet location, to all the amenities, to the house itself was beyond perfect. Helen was so sweet and was available for anything we needed (which was not much because everything was so great). I would recommend staying here if you are passing through or staying for a while. So much fun!! Thank you, Helen!!

Super comfortable place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights while we explored Revelstoke. This suite was very comfortable as it had everything we needed. Everything was of great quality, including the beds which gave us all a good nights sleep. Helen was an excellent host who had stocked the kitchen for some excellent breakfasts(with quality foods). She also gave us some great suggestions for dining and things to see. The suite was huge and relaxing to be in. Great tv with pvr allowed us to watch Stanley Cup Playoffs after we came back from dinner!

Spacious, comfortable and friendly

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed for 6 nights while skiing at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. The condo is beautifully furnished and equipped, and is very spacious, quiet and comfortable. Helen and Andrew were really friendly and helpful, and made us feel very much at home. There are lots of thoughtful touches (fresh flowers, candy) plus the kitchen was well-stocked with breakfast supplies. It was great having convenient storage for our skis and boots, plus boot warmers and lots of space to hang stuff up. The TV and internet worked great, and the shower is fantastic! The location is just a few minutes drive from the ski hill and walkable to downtown and the greenbelt trails. We would love to come stay here again. Highly recommended!

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in September for 3 nights. Our host Helen was very friendly and helpful with lots of ideas about places to hike and visit. The basement suite has been beautifully finished with some lovely features. Kitchen very well stocked and if we needed anything extra we just had to ask. Location is walking distance to the riverside trails and short drive to ski hill. Very quiet at night which made for a good night's sleep.

On leaving for our next destination Helen gave us some fruit from the trees in her garden.

Our party of four had a great stay. Thank you Helen for making us feel so at home.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early August 2016 for two nights. The hosts Helen and Andrew were very friendly and had lots of great tips about local attractions. The basement suite is beautiful with great features. The kitchen is well stocked and everything seems to be in excellent condition. The location is on a quiet residential street that is a short drive from downtown, a short walk to the riverside trail, and less than ten minutes away from the ski hill. Our family of five had a great experience here.

Amazing Girls Fall Craft Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend drove in from Kelowna and I drove in from Calgary. We met to craft over a weekend in the beautiful mountains. Helen was more than accommodating of our schedules and beyond friendly! The suite was gorgeous. Spacious. Airy. Clean. Comfortable. The décor was the cherry on top! My girlfriend and I had an absolute blast crafting, dining, drinking wine and spending a relaxing weekend away. We will definitely be back. Thanks Helen!
