Le logement

This is a large, older property and unlike many places you will find along kootenay lake, we are on a clearing in the middle of crown forested land with no direct neighbours. Our own home is on-site too; we leave you be as much as you desire but are there to assist, suggest outings or a place to buy that widget you need. The cottages are older and comfortable but it is the setting, space, tranquillity and views are what makes people fall in love with it. Many people return or extend their stay. We frequently host monthly renters. We are set back from the highway further than most so it is quiet and a lot of wildlife visits us. There is lots of room to wander, on and off-site. For pets too; although they need to be on-leash on-site, as soon as they are on the driveway or in the forest and the beach they can run until they drop! The forests behind us stretch all the way back to Cranbrook, with no one in between. We have created some clearly marked trails and more are planned. Although a clean and tidy property, this is not a new-built sterile second home; our place lives and breathes and has deep roots, we live on-site full time, host year round, chop our own firewood, grow our own fruit and enjoy/ deal with all seasons as they come. Our skies are so dark you can see the Milky Way. Our water comes from a spring right out of the mountain. We love hosting and will try to make your stay as stress free as possible. You're welcome to help out on the property as well.

Autres remarques

In September and October black bears frequent the property to eat our apples so please be bear aware.

In the fall you may also encounter a minor nuisance bug, the Western conifer seed or "cedar" bug. This harmless bug is often unknown to those living to the East of the Rockies as it occurs from California to BC. They eat only treesap, don't bite, sting, nor raid your food and they can be easily caught. They are basically clumsy bugs, looking for a place to nap for the winter. We advise to not leave doors etc open too long. More information can be found on Wikipedia.

What a fantastic property and stay! The property is even nicer in person and the view is magnificent. The wood-burning fireplace is such a nice touch and I liked the fact that we could chop or own wood :) Steffen was very friendly and promptly communicated before and during our stay. We hope to visit again soon!

Our stay was the perfect getaway and we have absolutely no complaints. There was no shortage of things to do (walks, games, books, DVDs) and just enjoying the property and relaxing. Steffen and his family were fantastic hosts and were so helpful and we have nothing but good things to say. We can't wait to go back!

Very scenic and lots of amenities. Hiking trails are great. The host (Steffen) is very friendly and nice. Be aware that the Kootenay's have cedar bugs seasonally. They are harmless to humans but can be a minor inconvenience.

Réponse de Steffen, Charlotte And Lewis :
Hi Tyler, thank you for your kind feedback. Agreed, Cedar bugs are a minor nuisance throughout the Kootenay forests in the fall. Often unknown to folks East of the Rockies, this harmless tree bug occurs from California to BC. It doesn't sting, bite or want your food. They clumsily try to find a warm place to overwinter. We do our best to keep them out and advise to not keep doors open too long. Any stragglers are easily removed by hand or vacuum. For more information see: (URL HIDDEN) or consult Wikipedia. Officially, these bugs are called Western Conifer Seed Bug. Thanks again for your stay! Steffen, Charlotte and Lewis

Perfect getaway! Thank you Steffen, Charlotte and Lewis. Your cabin made for the perfect getaway. The lake and mountain views are amazing and the cabin is even better than in the pics. We love to cook and the kitchen was well supplied and had everything we needed. The deck was a great spot to relax with a glass of wine and just enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful views. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. E

My husband and I stayed for a few nights with our dog. We enjoyed the trails on their property and had a lot of fun on the water using the canoe. This was a quite little cabin and perfect for a relaxing get a away. Steffen and Charlotte were great hosts and let us have lots of space to relax.
