Our “cabin” is a well-appointed 3 bedroom home with a loft. It is situated on the Similkameen River, fronting on a beach next to the swimming hole. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds, 1 bedroom with a queen, and 2 single beds, a double hide-a-bed in the loft, and a queen hide-a-bed in the living room. It has pine ceilings, slate and wooden floors and an outdoor deck area that overlooks the grassy yard, the forested mountainside and the river. We enjoy a wood-burning fireplace that provides heat in the winter. The river is quite brisk, but is a great place to swim when the weather is hot! Neighbours are very friendly and a favourite pastime is walking and chatting. Phone and wifi is only available through your portable device, through the local provider, Telus, which may make connection a challenge. We have always enjoyed being "off the grid" in the mountains as phone access has only been available in the last 2 years, and internet only through the phone. We are 2-3 hours East of Vancouver (the opposite direction from Whistler) and are away from crowds. Skiing in winter (December to the end of March) is 20 minutes from the cabin (downhill and cross-country). There is ungroomed cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking directly from the cabin, depending on the snow conditions. In summer, there is canoeing on Lightning Lake in Manning Park, 20 minutes away, as well as many wilderness hikes in Manning Park and in the local mountains of the neighbourhood. This is a wilderness area, and we are in a quiet neighbourhood of 75 homes in the mountains.
