We were nine members of a hiking club staying here for the first time. We would definitely go back! We had two beautiful cabins, in perfect condition, newly constructed, immaculate, spacious, and cozy. Each cabin had two bedrooms, a large kitchen, two bathrooms, and a woodstove. The only thing missing, for my liking, was a bathtub; the larger bathroom has a shower. There are two wonderful hot tubs, one hot and one warm, in the indoor pool area. These made up for the lack of a tub in the cabin, especially after our 16 km hike in Manning park where the conditions were great for our snowshoes. It took 35-40 mins. to drive to the trailhead in Manning, but the park trails are worth the drive because the hiking routes closer to the cabins could be noisy due to snowmobiles/ ATV's in the area.
There was a large group of snowmobilers staying at the cabins but we only heard one snowmobile revving up in the RV area on Sunday morning. Not sure what the rules are but this resort was quiet except for the one machine. I would recommend this place to other non-motorised hiking/ nature types. The cabins are much larger and wayyy spiffier (cheaper rates too!) than Manning Park resort.
The only inconveniences we experienced were minor, re the cabins being equipped: we needed more bathroom towels, tea towels, a tea kettle, and matches for the wood stove (there was fire starter in the cabin). The couple that run the resort are great, very helpful! They brought us some split wood and a hatchet for kindling when the firewood provided in our cabin (unsplit fence posts) took forever to catch. The the office hours are limited at this time of year (9:00 - 4:00) and we were either hiking outside of these hours or didn't want to track them down over minor details. It would have been nice to have the pool/ hot tubs open later too (they closed at 9:00) pm. The large rec room in the pool area was open later for the Canucks game on satellite TV. No TV in the cabins but there was Internet: for an additional charge of $3 the WIFI worked great!
