About the property

New Thursday to Thursday turnaround

The Beach:

It's really all about the beach! .......100 feet of sunny beach complete with your own dock and buoy is yours to enjoy privately.

The beach is very clean, natural and more private than most. This particular stretch of waterfront has a variety of tiny pebbles and rugged outcroppings providing exceptionally clean swimming conditions. Wearing proper beach shoes is a must ! The water is crystal clear and usually free of any duck population. Tucked into a shady area under the trees, is a 3 seater swinging lounger/daybed.....the perfect retreat in the afternoon. Beach fires are allowed during specific periods and several Adirondack chairs and a few lawn chairs are provided for these gatherings.

Just added are 2 large size paddle boards. Life jackets are provided too, just tell me what sizes you need.

The Cabin:

The architecturally unique design is a new build on the lake and offers expansive views of Copper Island. In the master suite you will wake to the stunning lake view that spans the entire width of your room. Enjoy a lazy morning in your king size Beautyrest or join the family for coffee down at the beach in your pyjamas.

Now for breakfast...with room for 2 cooks this kitchen is equipped with everything you can think of. The large island prep area faces your guests with seating for 6. SubZero-sized refrigeration provides 50 cubic feet for everyone's groceries and beverages! The chef in the family will appreciate gas range and a fully stocked pantry, loaded with serving dishes, apply platters, wine glasses and ethnic spices. There are 2 overstuffed club chairs in the kitchen, ensuring comfort for every age. At the touch of a button the steel and glass garage door expands your kitchen to the patio with pond and waterfall. This outdoor entertaining area faces the lake and is where you will BBQ and gather around the gas fire table with seating for 12.

The upper deck also faces the lake and offers very private, alfresco dining with seating for 4 -6 and an upclose view of Copper Island and of course the spectacular, unpredictable sunsets.

Sleeping Arrangments:

The beds at The Birdhouse are dressed in the finest of linens and all have real down duvets. No shortage of pillows here. I endeavour to provide the most luxurious bedding and I am confident you will not find this again at any other rental property.

Master suite on upper floor has 1 King bed with an incredible view of the lake. Extremely large ensuite and wardrobe area functions as a main bath for this open concept home and features a Texas-sized, custom tile shower with 3 shower heads and a private enclosed toilet area.

Mid-level sleeping: : The Cabana room is a well-dressed, fully enclosed and screened outdoor room furnished with 1 queen bed and 2 twin beds. The kids will love the tropical feel of this room and the ensuite can be easily accessed at night without disturbing other guests in the Master bedroom.

Lower- level sleeping: 1 queen bed with ground floor, level entry access. All doors are 3-4 feet wide on this level. Seniors will prefer this room with their own private toilet and shower. This room is a bright, well-lit reading room with Satellite TV to wind down in the evenings.

Why Nancy Bell chose Shuswap Lake

Blind Bay is a little bee-hive of summer boating fun and great people. The proximity to the Trans Canada Hwy. and extremely clean, drinkable water makes this location ideal.

Stunning Location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 8 stayed at The Birdhouse for a week, the home and location are beautiful! The beds were very comfortable and the home is spaced out enough that there are many areas to lounge on your own if you want too. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need including the dishes and pans for the special meals that we planned. Our host, Nancy, was amazing and did everything she could to make our stay perfect including helping with our "25th Anniversary Vow Renewal" which we were able to do right in front of the waterfall! Nancy has a few small projects left to do to complete the work on this home and once they are finished it will definitely be a 5 star home!!! I hope I am able to return for another stay!

We had a great stay at the Birdhouse, and Nancy was awesome and super accommodating. Unfortunately we didn't have great weather, but we still managed to use the beach which was steps from the property. I would absolutely stay here again.

This home is amazing!!! It has exceptional views out of every window. A fully stocked kitchen with everything you can think of. We had such a good experience the kids loved playing at the beach and in the water, even my dog loved it. Nancy is every accomodating, straight forward... She didn't hide anything about the property wether it was good or bad and even came back just to give us water and the kids some treats. We liked this place so much we already booked it again :) You arrive as a guest but leave as a friend, I cant wait till next year!!!Thx again for everything :)
