Overview

About the property

Lakefront cottage a short stroll to the beach

Our property provides the athmosphere of a private secluded summer residence with beach. The cabin is in its private little orchard overlooking our lake front pasture and our private bay with beach. The location is has a beautiful deck where you can enjoy the sunset over the mountains.

The cabin is 900 sqft of very liveable space. It was originally built in 1991 and upgraded in 2009 and 2013. The cottage fits nicely into its natural environment. The cottage consists of an open living area with sofa and futon, an open kitchen, a newly renovated bathroom, a bedroom with closet and an entrance with laundry utilities.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size stove and oven, side by side fridge, dishwasher and microwave. The living room has a TV (just for playing DVD's since we have no satellite TV), a stereo with Ipod station a sofa and futon and a woodstove.

The bedroom has a queen size bed and a closet. The bathroom has a shower/tub. The entrance with laundry has closets and a washer and dryer.

A second smaller bedroom has a bunk bed and a closet. A deck is located on the west side of the cottage with beautful views over the pasture, beach and bay. A fence surrounds the cottage and some fruit trees build a little orchard. Take a few steps off the deck to a short path that leads you down through the pasture to the beach. In the boathouse you will find life jackets and noodles and some water toys. On the beach you can use our kayaks and canoes for explorations of lake and shoreline (no charge). There is also a swimming platform with ladder for a private sun tanning or for jumping into the lake. There is an older dock (please watch your steps) that provides a place to tie up a boat. Across the lake there is an island to explore and within a short hike also a waterfall. The property is a total of 100 acres and offers trails for hiking and exploration. Watch the Ospreys and Bald Eagles fish in our bay. There is always lots of wildlife around. Have fun!

In the winter you can usually snow shoe from the cottage. There is lot of wilderness to explore. Enjoy the back country and mountains with your snow mobile (please watch the avalanche reports). There is a lot of terrain in the Selkirks and Monashee mountains that is just used by our local snow mobil enthusiasts or find some hidden x-country trails. Winters are magical around the Arrow Lake with moderate temperatures and a lot of snow in the mountains. Backcountry ski exploration is a lot of fun.

Dogs:

Well behaved dogs that stay on the ground (not on sofas, beds etc.) are very welcome and if they do not run after wildlife can be kept without a leash. There is so much room to run around for dogs and with our rock bluff to the north and a meshed fence to the south it is quite safe. Our resident dog Pumpkin is very friendly.

Have fun!

About The Owner

Hi, my name is Sabine and I love to share our property with guests. It is just my husband Ulf and myself sharing our property with our guests and we usually do not see each other aside from on the beach.

Why The Owner chose Central Kootenay K

Our family fell in love with the Kootenays and our property in 1990. It was the location, climate, the beach and lake, the long summer seasons the clear water, fishing and space that we loved. We raised our kids on the property and since they have left to other parts of the world like to share the beauty of the place.

What makes this cottage unique

Privacy, unspoiled beach, no crowds, room to breathe, freedom, quiet, clean water, in the woods, lots of trees including old apple trees and wild cherries as well as walnuts and other. Free kayak and canoe usage, wildflowers ...

As we remembered

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here 3 years ago, and again now. Was as we hoped and remembered. 4 instead of 5 as the sleeping options if more than 2 adults (we were 2 last time, 4 this time) aren't great. Use the pullout couch instead of the bunks :)

Lovely! Perfect for families.

The cottage is clean and big enough to meet your vacation needs. In- house laundry is handy with kids! The huge beach is only a short walk away - wonderful for children to explore.

Wonderful place tucked away

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the week spent here. Wanted to get away from out busy daily lives and this was the perfect spot to get some r & r. Hit up a number of hot springs but the area has too many to visit them all in a week. Very peaceful retreat would recommend anytime.

Very nice location. Quiet and pretty. Nice view and friendly people. Well maintained and ideal for time at the beach or kayaking like we did. We will be back. If you need peace and quiet this is a great spot.
