The surrounding area:
The log cabin is situated on a 13 hectare park-like plot with fantastic mountain and lake view .. It does not pass-road through the property, so it is absolutely quiet. Sometimes you can observe wildlife directly from the terrace. Smaller walks start right outside the front door.
The house is located 1 km south of Silverton and 1. 9 Km from the main road. On a forest path you can walk in about 25 minutes to Silverton, which is the smallest village in British Columbia. Since there is a food shop and a café that defines this. The locals here are very friendly, it's easy to come in's conversation with them.
In Silverton there are several beaches where you can enjoy a swim. With a rented canoe you can look for a nice place for a picnic.
A boat-trip to the opposite Valhalla Provincial Park can be arangiert. There you can go hiking, see spectacular waterfalls and 6,000-year-old Indian pictographs visit.
The over 2200 meter high mountain peak with the old fire watchtower, is a popular viewpoint. The 360 ° panoramic view of the Slocan Lake and the surrounding mountains is spectacular. The alpine meadows are beautiful. From the ghost town of Sandon out, a 12 km long dirt road leads to a high-altitude parking. From there leads a 1. 5 Km long tightrope walk up through beautiful alpine meadows, to the summit. We recommend for this road a vehicle with high clearance, or even all-wheel drive. This also applies to many other high-altitude hikes in the area.
We can advise you in planning your excursions and hikes.
We, Karin and Bruno Burgermeister emigrated from Switzerland to Canada and live for over 20 years on this land.
We made our dream come true and are drawn from the largest city in Switzerland to the smallest village in British Columbia.
We have made our hobby into a profession and act with crystals, minerals and fossils. In the gallery on the property, we show and sell stones from around the world.
