Escape, Relax, Unwind and Reconnect at the Cabins at Slocan Lake.
About Laura Brossmann
Although I'm busy in Toronto raising two young children, my favourite in the whole wide world is sitting on the back deck of our cabin in the Kootenays, enjoying a campfire, glass of wine and gazing at stars.
Laura Brossmann purchased this House in 2009

Diamond in the rough
Adventure my family will never forget ---AWESOME!!! --- Arrived at the property at 10 pm --- my 4 grandkids immediately fell in love with the (Mansion ) cabin --- they had sleeping arrangements made before the luggage was even brought in. --- things only got better from there --- going out onto sundeck was another pleasant surprise --- a star filled sky revealed an outline of a lake far below --- morning walk confirmed, a 1000 ft elevation drop to the lake --- A fair sized warf with lots of water toys like paddle boards was another smash hit with kids --- yes we did luck out with excellent weather, but the point i would like to make is the cabin by itself was more than worth the price of rental by itself --- cabin was well stocked, nice touches like fire table, lifting weights, etc --- spending a few days alone with a loved one in a secluded place like that certainly appealing to me --- in closing, satalite, wifi, cell signal were more than adequate.
Beautiful Slocan Lake
We really enjoyed our stay at beautiful cabin number #4. The communication with the host was flawless from beginning to end, and any questions were answered promptly. The "cabin" is a gorgeous two-story home that is very spacious and clean and in great condition. The house could easily accommodate a large group (two families with kids, would be no problem). Our family has rented quite a few vacation homes in this area and I would have to say that this one is very well equipt. If I had to provide constructive criticism it would be that there could be more plates and bowls (if you had a big group you would not have enough ). Movies, map books, reading books, games, etc. were a really nice touch.
Unfortunately, there was heavy smoke in the area so we were not able to see the full extent of the view from the deck, but it did not take away from our great time. The property itself is secluded and lovely. The access road (1.5km) from the highway is bumpy, but do able in a two wheel drive car. The path to the dock is a doozy. Make sure you have what you need before you head down! Or maybe you enjoy a good (but short) work out, and want to shuttle gear for your group! The result is worth it though as you are rewarded with swimming in beautiful and pristine Slocan Lake (second to none, in my opinion). Kayaks are available for use, which we really loved. The waterfall right by the property is absolutely breathtaking. Worth the trip just for the easy access to the waterfall! Also, keep in mind you can stay at the lovely cabin and use it as a springboard to all of the other excellent places to go and experience in the area.
We had such a nice time I am sure we will be back in the near future!
Quiet retreat for a large group
Gorgeous views from this quiet spot, a well equipped and maintained property, perfect for a larger group with open concept space. We enjoyed group meals at the large dining table and spent evenings relaxing by the fire on the beautiful deck overlooking the lake.
Sarah and Chris were welcoming and quick to respond to any questions we had, providing an informative welcome package. Access to the water possible from the property, though be prepared for a walk down a fairly steep gravel road. You can fish right off the dock or next to the nearby waterfalls. Kayaks and SUP boards were available for guests to use as well. Having a vehicle made it possible to explore local highlights, would definitely suggest a 4 by 4 if planning on exploring nearby hikes. Internet and phone service can be spotty in the area and a booster has been installed on the property.
All in all, it was a great fit for what our group was looking for. Would recommend.
Exactly what we needed for our weekend bike race trip. Place was nice and quiet and had all the amenities we needed.
