5/5 Excellent

Large, airy and sweetly decorated property.
My partner, dog and I had a wonderful short stay in this spacious and open house. Wonderful welcome gifts and such a cute kitchen and expansive garden made the trip even sweeter. We spent some time exploring the area and would recommend visiting Paul lake for the hike up Gibraltar rock. This is a great spot for families and couples alike and the house was so clean and beautifully appointed it was a pleasurable stay.

5/5 Excellent

Great with a Dog and Kids
Mitchell and Laura-Lee's place was perfect for our short family vacation. The communication was excellent and prompt and the photos of the house and property are an accurate representation. We thought it was going to be touch and go with the wildfires west of Kamloops and Mitchell and Laura-Lee were very accommodating while we waited to see if coming was viable (ultimately, it wasn't an issue). A few things that we really appreciated: - Their house is part of a small community and there is an elementary school nearby with a really nice playground (two actually, one for little kids and one for older kids) - Our dog loves swimming but doesn't like jumping from a dock and there is a very small and quiet boat launch just a few minutes away where he could go in - The kitchen is very well appointed with plenty of dishes, cookware, staple ingredients, etc. - The master bed and bath are enormous with a beautiful and large deck overlooking the lake - The lake is very quiet - The WIFI was very reliable (no cell service, but it didn't matter because of the WIFI) - It's quite close to Kamloops (25 mins) but feels nowhere near a city (more cows and horses around than people) - The back yard is very large and flat (perfect for throwing the ball to our dog) One thing we learned the hard way is if you are driving to Sun Peaks, you have to go the long way around (back toward Kamloops). Both Google and Apple Maps will insist that there is a shorter route heading east, but it's an unmaintained forestry road that is only realistically passable with a serious 4x4 vehicle.

Lake Fun
The process was great. Quick responses to my questions and when we arrived there was wine and chocolate in the fridge. The black cat made friends immediately and we enjoyed his visits. The air was smoky but that was expected. The owner gave us an overview of the area prior to us arriving and it was actually not a bother. The lake was perfect. The swims and the pedal boat were lots of fun. The loons serenaded us and we enjoyed the middle of the lake on mirror perfect lake watching them. A really nice time with family in a quiet and serene location.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay at a remote lakeside location :)
Really enjoyed the quiet at the location. The kids enjoyed the lake and the paddle boat. Nice, cute, clean and cozy property. The beds were comfortable. We did miss having cell service and having a microwave but we managed without and everything went well. We did not meet Mitchell and Laura-Lee in person but they are very nice & friendly people as we communicated through emails. They have been very helpful when we had questions, and they responded to emails very promptly. We very much enjoyed our stay.
