"We are locals to the area but were looking for a nice romantic getaway with a hot tub… well we got what we wanted plus much more!!! Everything was amazing, from the cottage which felt like home the minute we walked in, to the breathtaking views, our hiking adventures, to the warmth and generosity of the hosts. Warren and Rochelle were gracious and attentive hosts as well as wonderful dinner companions and talented musicians – they entertained us with our own private concert and made that evening a memorable one. The only negative comment that I could possibly find is that we didn’t stay long enough. We are looking to repeat the experience in the near future – thank you Warren and Rochelle for sharing your little paradise with us and the heartwarming memories!"

"I thought that perhaps there was trick photography used in advertising this place - they seemed unreal. But the photos are accurate - the views of the Tantalus range is as advertised...amazing. The chalet is cozy, and the hot tub is great - especially when the temperature is in the 30s. The property is completely "off the grid" - all electrical power is generated by water power from the nearby stream. We hope to return someday!"

"We spent our honeymoon here - and we wish we stayed longer! Every little detail of the cottage is so personalized by Warren and Rochelle. It was beautiful. We can't wait to go back!"
