About Alison Murray

Alison grew up in England and Brad grew up in Edmonton but vacationed in this region for many years as a small boy. We currently live in Calgary with our 3 adult children Lauren, Aidan and Keira. We had vacationed in this area numerous times and our dream was to own a vacation property near Mara Lake. This property was perfect for us because it is large enough for large family gatherings, very close to the beach and Mara Lake.

Alison Murray purchased this house in 2009

Why Alison Murray chose British Columbia

We discovered this property in the fall of 2008 and saw a potential for making it into a great vacation home.

Great area close to the beach. Huge back yard.

  • 5 of 5

The house was well stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook with. All you need to bring is your food. We had a Christmas dinner in July with all the trimmings and had everything we needed to cook it.

There was tons of room for all of our family. Huge kitchen and living room with comfortable couches for the down times. There was loads of games (new & older) to keep us all amused. 2 nice big decks and a huge BBQ.

Awesome wifi in the cabin and it even worked outside.

Lots of beds and beautiful linens and more than enough for all of them.

Backyard was beautiful. All kinds of fruit trees and very well thought out. Nice big clean hot tub.

Overall we had a great family time here and will definitely be back.

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in June. The cabin owners were helpful, accommodating, informative and quick to respond to any needs or questions.

The cabin is just like home. It is equipped with everything and anything you would need.

We had a family of 8, including grandparents, kids and grand kids. We each had our own spaces as the cabin is very spacious.

The scenery is breath taking! The neighbours are quiet and we came home very relaxed.

The only negative thing I would have to say is that it was tricky to get all the bedding washed and dried before check out at noon, as we had 5 different beds that were used. That being said, we accomplished it. I'm sure the owners would have been accommodating if we weren't able to complete in time.

We would love to visit this cabin and area in the future. Lots to see and do!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Sheila! We are happy that you had a wonderful time. Thank you for doing a great job cleaning and managing to get all the sheets washed and dried. We realise that there can be lots of bedding to wash and hope that having duplicate sheets for all the beds help. We will also be installing a larger capacity washer and dryer this fall. Thanks Alison & Brad Murray

Fantastic stay at Swansea Point

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation at Mara Lake. The house is very spacious and well supplied! It didn't matter if the weather was cloudy or sunny there was always something to do because of all the house amenities. The hot tub and firepit were wonderful to have right in the backyard. Many beaches to choose from within walking distance. Hope to make it an annual vacation!

Beautiful and well kept home

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything! The kitchen has every utensil imaginable. Large living room with comfy couches. All the beds were comfortable with new pillows and nice linens. The outdoor hot tub was an added bonus on the not so nice days. There were 2 adults and 4 children and we had lots of space. Huge BBQ. Big back yard for playing outdoor games. We also were able to use a few things out of the garden! Fresh tomatoes, strawberries and cucumbers.

The beach is only a 2 minute walk and is quite nice. Clean warm water for swimming.

Close to the town of Sicamouse that has a great grocery store and a few fun things to do with the kids like Dutchmen dairy and mini golf. Also only 45 minutes to Vernon or Salmon Arm. And 1 hour to Revelstoke.

I will definitely be booking this home again!
