  • Great Family Vacation

    "We loved everything about this property and can't wait to come back! It was clean, well maintained, great location and Bob and Wendy are very friendly and helpful with restaurant and activity recommendations. We have two small children (5 and 1.5) and neither of them woke from the train when it passed through during the night. Bob and Wendy have thought of everything a family with kids might need which is so helpful when trying to pack (high chair, booster chair, playpen, kids life jackets, plastic kiddie pool). We loved eating meals on the decks, kayaking and spending the days on our private beach. No doubts that this will become an annual family vacation for us!"

  • Beautifully build hostel, great Old Growth Cedar across Hwy

    "The beds in hostel are comfortable, bring your sleeping blankets or bags, as it is not made clear that only a few are available, lots of variety of pillows! ( There are clean sheets in a dresser. ) directions to get there are very difficult (PDF sent night before we left) showed "Lodge" sign on left side of road going West from Kaslo, 31A and directly across is a road to right, which seems easy enough until it is dark and all we remembered was "20 min from Kaslo and 20 from New Denver" which helped us more than directions, as there was no "Lodge" on the sign, but a red curved slash and no words detected in dark and road to cabin not really very visible. What road does have in the light of day, is solar panels up high and some pink flagging on a pole. The out house is a well constructed building, however, what was provided was sawdust, lime is best but wood ash is great second choice. These WILL break down deposits and mostly remove the "outhouse odor". Because it was stated on directions sheet inside of outhouse that "pee is the cause of the smell in the outhouse and to pee, if possible, elsewhere" there is a strong smell of urine on the other side of the cabin (when the sun hits it in the morning, as it is the most comfortable place to go at night). This could easily be neutralized, after boundaries are set and people educated about results of indiscriminate close urination to building. Having stated thoughts on this, the Old growth Cedar Grove across the highway is a wonderland my husband and I enjoyed. The many photo opps include the majestic trees, great roots, formed knots on the ancient trees, moss, beautiful wild flowers and flowing stream. Took an exceptionally beautiful drive to New Denver and had a fantastic lunch! Came back to hostel, easily washed up and went to Kaslo for the throughly enjoyable performance of Michael Franti and Spearhead at festival. Coming back to hostel was much easier even in the rainy dark and fog, as we had first hand knowledge of the Red Slash!! The solar outdoor lights are convenient when driving up, don't forget your flashlights as there is no lights immediately in cabin but once you are in and in kitchen, look on the windowsill, there are solar lamps that work very well! It is well thought out in many aspects. We found the kitchen very easy to use and the water management effective."
