Inside Lakeside Cottage

Guest comment

"Lakeside Cottage is just as unique and friendly as the B&B but with more privacy and the option to cook."

Whether you're in search of a special romantic hideaway, or a fun-filled family vacation, Lakeside is superb! Situated on a knoll with Cusheon Lake below, the cottage has a wonderful lake view and is but a short path to excellent swimming and water sports.

Guests have the complimentary use of:

  • a large dock
  • canoes
  • a rowboat with electric motor
  • surfer boards
  • a sauna
  • kayaks may be available for experienced paddlers.


The cottage is private, spacious and well-appointed, including:

  • a fireside lounge
  • two decks
  • fully equipped kitchen
  • washer and dryer
  • three bedrooms
  • woodburning stove
  • TV / VCR / stereo

Newly renovated, it is cedar-sided and beamed on the inside and has a great air-tight stove for keeping warm and cozy. There are three attractively decorated bedrooms able to accomodate up to five people.

Enjoy lots of sunshine on the front deck, a lovely spot for a home-cooked breakfast. The back deck looks down at the tranquil waters of Cusheon Lake, and is perfect for lounging with a good book or playing a board game.
