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.

Whether it's apres ski your after or just winding down with your family at the local aquatic center there is fun for everyone.

Everything was perfect, the beautifully appointed 2 bedroom suite had everything we could have wanted (and more), the location and especially the hostess. Will definitely recommend Snowdrifters Guest House to our friends and hope to return soon.

Central location with warm & friendly host

  • 5 of 5

Stayed as a family of 3 with 7 year old daughter for 4 nights from 8-12 July 2017. Lovely 2 bed apartment just as described. Superb location for visiting all they key points of interest & just a short walk into Revelstoke town. Helen was very helpful providing advice on places to visit as well as use of the family's own bikes & kayak. Well stocked with all the basic essentials & we would certainly be back if ever visiting Revelstoke again.

Perfect place to set up and enjoy Revelstoke

  • 5 of 5

Firstly Revelstoke is a perfect place to visit, and enjoy the natural surrounds and amazing downtown. We enjoyed our visit to the town and it was great to have a place to stay that was close to town. Our 6 and 8 year old girls loved the biking in the neighbourhood and many playgrounds to visit that we're all walking distance.

The accomadations were clean, and perfect for our family. The owners Helen and Andrew were so friendly and helped out with any questions we had.

Our next visit will hopefully be the winter to enjoy the ski hill which is only 5 minutes away.

We will be back.

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!
