Escape, Relax, Unwind and Reconnect at the Cabins at Slocan Lake.
About Laura Brossmann
We spend two weeks every August at our cottage on Slocan Lake and it's my favorite place on earth! There's nothing I love more than sitting on that deck, taking in that breathtaking view and enjoying the total silence.
Laura Brossmann purchased this House in 2009
Why Laura Brossmann chose Silverton
'The Kootenays are one of the last great places in all of North America. It is the safest, least touched, cheapest, most visually dramatic recreation area left.' - Andy Cohen, BC Division of Resorts of the Canadian Rockies

Beautiful in everyway but for the lake access.
We loved the place and even its remoteness but felt it should have given fuller disclosure on how close and what shape a person needs to be in to access the lake. The degree of diifficulty was not disclosed and for anybody with a physical impediment (eg bad hips or knees), the access is very precarious. Not knowing this in advance disappoints as in 34degree weather being by and in the water would be nice.
Took my two adult children and wife for a week of down time. Great spot to do it. Owners are great to deal with, communicated quickly and were very accommodating. Cabins are well stocked, very clean and well thought out and Tucked away with only a few neighbors, incredible view looking over Slocan lake and Valhalla Nat. Park. Cabin is nicer than most homes. If you are ok with no wifi, which we were, this is a great place to get away from every day and re connect with family or friends. Plenty to do otherwise in the area. The walk down to the private dock is a good hike, beautiful and don't miss going at least 1/2 way down and veer to left when you hear rushing water. The waterfall if freakin awesome. 2 warnings, the walk down is doable but the hike back up is a lung and leg burner. I am in my 50's and work out 4 times a week. It was a great great workout but if your not fit, it's going to be rough. The second warning is be very aware of bears in area. Make lots of noise and take bear spray or horn. Saw a bear almost every day in about a 10 mile radius of cabins but only 1 that said good morning as he walked by the cabin on his morning walk. Would definitely recommend and we will be back.
Beautiful, private, remote location with stunning views.
We traveled as a large group to Canada from the States for a long weekend of snowmobiling. We rented two cabins for our group and we were the only guests there for the weekend. It was a very great time away from phone calls and the latest news.
A longer review is on cabin #1.
We would stay again, maybe in the summer!
House was perfect. Well laid out and well supplied. Very clean. A/C is an added bonus!! Easy check in and check out. Tremendous views. Directions to rental worked perfectly. Do not be concerned about taking a regular car on the road .... it is not a problem.
As pointed out, the path to the water requires some effort but it is well worth it. The dock is a great place to hang out. You can kayak in peace all day .... hardly any other boats on the lake. The water is crystal clear. FYI - there is no beach and the water is deep right off the dock. Utilize the provided life jackets if required. Make sure to check out the waterfall.
Cell and data service at the house can be spotty but you aren't going to need it with all the scenery and amenities. It is a 10 min drive to Silverton to if you need a data fix.
I came from the north. House is about 90 minutes from the ferry.
Note that the closest gas station in New Denver closes at 6.
Book this place with confidence ..... just not when I want to stay there again ;)
Beautiful and enjoable stay for a family of 5.
A stunning view of Slocan Lake. Very lovely modern cabin with all you need for your stay. We made great use of the kayaks and paddle boards that are available to the guests. Do bring good footwear to make the treck to and from lake. We certainly will come again.
This place rocks!
This is luxury in the heart of the Valhalla Mountains! Surrounded by glacier topped mountains, overlooking a pristine lake, in amongst 4 other cabins. Quality built homes! Street bike touring dream! Best roads in BC. Mountain bike, Kayak, hike, Cat Ski /Board, hunt... An outdoor dream.
