“Amazing location and views”
Reviewed November 24, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

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!

“Words can't describe how amazing, relaxing and awesome this retreat is!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Warren and Rochelle are the perfect hosts; knowledgeable about the area, friendly and helpful. We stayed long enough to enjoy a breath-taking guided hike through the mountain trails that Warren loves with a delicious picnic lunch on the mountain top provided by Rochelle. The cabin is clean and very well supplied. The beds and linens lend themselves to a wonderful peaceful sleep in the quiet mountain setting. This is definitely a "retreat away from it all". We can't wait to go back!

“Romantic weekend, spectacular views”
Reviewed February 27, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Wow! We wanted a secluded retreat for a romantic weekend and we were not disappointed. Although not far from the owners this cabin was very private and secluded.

The views were spectacular, with views of the mountains and glaciers. At night the stars were incredible due to no light pollution.

We were more than comfortable in the well appointed cabin. The ambiance with the views and various art pieces created by the owners was perfect for a romantic weekend.

We often go away and feel uncomfortable in the bed but it was quite comfortable. I travel a great deal and have to say I was pleasantly surprised due to what I normally would have.

Rochelle and Warren were quite friendly and welcoming. They are fantastic hosts.

We will likely be back and we highly recommend this place!

“Fantastic cabin retreat - exceeded all expectations and highly recommended!!”
Reviewed November 21, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Got a reservation a few days before we arrived and this is simply an amazing place and great value for money.

The location is fantastic – less than an hour from downtown Vancouver. Another half hour or so to Whistler and less than 15 minutes to Squamish. The road is about 1km up from the Tantalus lookout parking lot (on the side heading to Whistler) on an old logging road and we made it fairly easy with a small rental car.

Our bags were whisked up to the cabin with a homegrown pulley/sled system that takes things up to the top of the cliff in seconds – very cool to see!

The cabin is a beautiful hand-crafted log cabin and is about 50 feet up a cliff overlooking the Tantalus mountain range. The hosts live on the backside of the cabin at the base of the cliff. Once you’re in the place you’re secluded and disconnected from everything (no phone, no wi-fi, but good cell service) – including the hosts, Warren and Rochelle, who were great. They completely respected our privacy and we were on your own when we wanted to be. Warren is a gifted and prolific artist who has a workshop beside their place and was happy to give us a tour and talk about his work.

The cabin has 3 bedrooms, a bathroom, a very comfy living room and nice large kitchen and dining room. It’s heated with a gas fireplace. The whole place is powered by a micro-hydro system fed from the stream down from the cabin – so off-grid. But power availability and quality was never a problem at all. They use a septic system, so you have to watch the number of flushes and so forth, but showers and hot water availability were great. The place was very clean and tidy and the kitchen is fully equiped to make your own meals. The bed was very comfy.

But the real treat is the deck and private hot tub. The tub is filled with water from the spring that runs below the cabin and is the perfect temperature and is simply wonderful. You can sit in the tub with 2 or 4 people and look over the Tantalus Mountain range and glaciers and grab a glass of wine. The view of the stars at night was great. We were there in November and sat out and ate on the deck a few times and enjoyed the sun.

There are also a bunch of fantastic hiking trails within walking distance of the cabin – including a hand drawn map from the owner! He’s even marked many of the trails so you don’t get lost. The rainforest around the cabin is spectacular and you don’t have to go anywhere for world class hiking. This is one of the few places I’ve ever given a full 5 star rating too – there’s simply nothing that could be better and the value is great. Highly recommended and we will certainly be back – many times I hope!!

“Beyond spectacular!”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Absolutely loved our stay! Fantastic views all around, and a great location between Squamish and Whistler! Glad to get an extra night too! Truly a relaxing place and the hot tub was great after our long hikes everyday. Loved the peaceful setting and the Brubackers have done an amazing job with the cabin. Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience!
