About the property

The most beautiful LAKE ACCESS cottage in the area... hands down. 5 star!!

Too see a video of guests having fun at the beach, view the last photos... it will then show up at the end. Enjoy.

Situated right on the shore overlooking Kootenay Lake . A beautiful 'Hidden Vacation Rental' GEM right in the middle of the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. We are nestled between 2 lakes. Kootenay Lake, about 2 miles wide and approximately 90 miles long, and Mirror Lake, a 5 or 10 minute walk behind our property.

Our 2 bedroom cottage is definitely a hideaway that features a wood interior, full kitchen and a real wood stove, with a glass fire door. We have electric heat and electric stove also; large tile carpeting in the bedrooms

One Queen and in other bedroom 2 singles.

A deck on the lake side to view and appreciate all of God's wonders. And, yes, we do have lake access, unlike so many other properties. We are so hidden, it is hard to believe the amenities of shopping and hospital in historic Kaslo are only 3 miles away. You won’t want to leave this hideaway.

About karl herbold

We are a retired couple

and love this place.

And we can give you much advice on what to see

or where to eat in the area.

Why karl herbold chose Central Kootenay D

Beautiful, quiet....

unless you have a boat you wouldn't even see the house or cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Beach access.....

most properties have beach view and not beach access

We are available for any questions you may have.... or if you wish we can let you flounder :)

Great lakefront location.

  • 4 of 5

This property has a great lakefront location with an extremely private beach. The house has a very functional, open layout. Nice front deck with incredible views of the valley. In close proximity to the quaint town of Kaslo. The owners are very friendly and helpful with insider info on the must see's. Thanks Karl and Inga, we had a wonderful stay!

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 just spent a wonderful week at this property. The property is perfect for a family. We spent every afternoon in the lake (which is clean and beautiful). My family took walks along the beach most evenings and also went over to Mirror Lake to play a couple of times. Karl and Inga made sure to welcome us and also answer any questions we had. They were wonderful hosts. We would go back to the area and this property again.

Kaslo in summer is Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (2 teen girls) just got back from 2 weeks at this cabin. We enjoyed our time here. Karl and Inga are great hosts and the views are spectacular. We had amazing weather. We hiked the area, paddled, swam and saw some of the sights. But we also just hung around on the lake shore reading or in the cabin playing games. A very relaxing stay in Kaslo area.

A holiday to be remembered!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is delightful and the location wonderful. As a senior with several accessibility concerns, the facility met my needs. Only three steps in or a choice of a ramp, all on one level - furnishings very comfortable. The Herbolds were wonderful hosts, making certain that all of our questions and concerns were handled. They gave us wonderful tips on what to do and see in the area - but the views and beach were sufficient for a great experience. Kaslo, just minutes away, provided interesting sites (historical buildings, SS Moyie) and lovely little stores to meet all our needs. Restaurants provided excellent food as well. Also took several day trips north and south - interesting things to see and do. Thank you for a wonderful restful experience. I would recommend this location to family and friends!
