Thank you to everyone who put their comments on TA or we would never have found such a lovely place. We stayed two nights but could easily have stayed a week, it is the perfect place to relax and get back to nature. We stopped here between leaving The Rockies and making our way to The Okanagan. This place really is in the middle of nowhere and as stated previously stock up before you come on food etc as half an hour on a dirt track back to Clearwater would not be fun! We used the supermarket and liquor store in Clearwater before arriving, both of which had plenty of choice. Once you arrive at your cabin you will just want to stay and chill.
Unfortunately we did not see any bears but we had our fill of birds, deer and unfortunately many many mosquitoes - bring repellent in July!
We stayed in a lakefront luxury cabin which had one bedroom (smallish) with one chest of drawers, a walk in cupboard area on the way to the well appointed bathroom. Towels are provided but remember rooms are only serviced every three days. There was a huge open kitchen and lounge area with tables/chairs which was spacious and airy. The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of space, they really thought of everything. They even provide a box of board games!! Tea/Coffee is provided and you have the use of a satellite TV and free internet access. Our cabin had a balcony with sunbeds and table/chairs but we did not risk the rain or the mozzies.
Kayaks and boats (without battery) are free for guests to use and life jackets are available in various sizes. It is worth taking a trip out on the lake as it is so peaceful and you may get to see a beaver. The jacuzzi was huge and clean and had its own toilet/changing facility, very relaxing. There is a BBQ area in the middle of the resort but that is for corporate events, guests now use a newly created area further up the resort. Wood is provided for the BBQ pit and to use the gas BBQ you need to ask reception to switch on the gas and there is possibly a charge for this. The BBQ area also has an indoor/outdoor area to picnic in with toilets and a large outdoor games section and play park. We would have preferred our own BBQ next to the cabin. There are laundrette facilities.
We did not use the restaurant but staff at reception were very efficient and helpful - esp directions to the Little Fort ferry.
