Cottage in Hills was a perfect family vacation. We enjoy the outdoors and the location was ideal for canoeing, swimming, hiking, whitewater rafting, zip lining and just enjoying the nearby lake. At the end of the day it was a perfect place to unwind, enjoy supper and watch the deer walk by your front yard. It was spotless clean. Lorna was a gracious host and the Cottage felt like home. We didn't want to leave but unfortunately all good things come to an end.
This was a luxury version of "roughing it" in an off-the-beaten-path mountain retreat with ease of access; the photo doesn't do the cabin justice. Inside it is modern, squeaky clean and charming; it's near abundant summer-swim-able lakes and more trails than there is time to hike them. The views are world class with clean air and peaceful woods; the beds are great, bathroom clean and complete, the kitchen has everything you need, a great deck with a porch swing. It's warm in the summer in this part of the world but that's what the lakes beautiful lakes are for.
The Cottage in Hill, B.C. is a veritable tonic. Built with its backside against a mountain, this immaculate cottage looks out upon a vista of gardens, lawns, swaying pines and in the near distance, Big Sister Mountain of the Valhalla Range. We had great plans during our one-day visit to hike along the forest path from the cottage to revisit Slocan Lake, but never got off the front porch with its rustic twig armchair and wicker swing. No matter: our stay was gloriously satisfying for the cottage alone, which has been built and furnished with extraordinary care. The kitchen contains every cooking accoutrement one could possibly desire, the cabinets are full to the brim with old-fashioned board games, local history books and DVDs — and the bed linens are to die for! Thank you, Lorna and Wayne (and chickens), for 24 hours of bliss. We shall return.
This cabin has everything you will need to self cater. No need to bring anything except food and clothing. Lovely private setting looking up into the snow-capped mountains. Cabin is very clean and grounds are lovely...peonies were in full bloom during our stay. Owners are very prompt at answering questions before arrival and very helpful in giving directions and making suggestions when asked. We enjoyed hiking and biking while there but boating is also possible nearby.
The cottage was clean and the beds were good. The kitchen was well stocked. Our hosts were very helpful in suggesting things to do.
This is a wonderful home. It is clean, fresh, has good beds, and has everything you need including a fantastic front porch to enjoy the view from. We found our host a lovely caring person who was always conscious of our privacy and made sure our needs were met. The location is convenient to New Denver and Nakusp. We brought our mountain bikes and road along the Galina Trail. The views are well worth the fun and easy ride. The house does not have service for cell phones! How awesome is that! I was unable to work at all ...yeah! Living in a farm environment was a really nice change. Thank-you Lorna.
One of the best winter vacation experiences! We definitely wish to come again, the view from the cottage is stunning beauty! The deer came everyday to our door to the delight of our daughter. Everything was perfect for us. Thank you so much Lorna and Wayne!
