Our 85+ acre property is located at the foot of the Caren Range mountains, and the edge of gorgeous Ruby Lake, featuring a lagoon & wildlife sanctuary, as well as onsite pump track, hiking trails, boat & board rentals, and a renown Italian restaurant.

The tents are rustic, but have basic creature comforts - including electricity, linens, & shared washroom facilities.

Bring food for breakfast as only facility is about 10 miles away -- also if can choose best to have tents that are closer to bathrooms and further from the highway (traffic early morning to the nearby ferry landing). However, rustic accommodation slight isolation is part of the c…

So glad that you & Rosie enjoyed your stay!! Was really lovely to meet both of you :) Sorry to hear that it was a bit chilly - it is true that we are having an unusually cold autumn this year. Btw, tonight is our last night of the season in the tents, which we always close down at the end of September, precisely because of the dropping temperatures. Glad that you came in time for a visit! Come back in the summer when lake and air temperatures are at their best!! Would be a pleasure to host you two again :)

I liked swimming in Ruby Lake and eating at the Trattoria. The staff were very warm and helpful. Know that the tents are close and you will hear everything your neighbors do, and know there is significant motorboat use at the swimming cove (and some fuel odors).

Thank you Alice for your review :) So glad that you enjoyed swimming and dining at our property! Indeed, our more economic tents (which you booked into) are a little closer to one another than our romantic lagoon view tents, or our completely private and secluded Rainforest Deluxe tent. Although Ruby Lake does allow motorized boats, we find that they rarely enter our bay, and are sorry that this affected your stay. :( It was a pleasure to meet you, and we do appreciate your feedback!

This place is a real treasure. The tents are substantial and very cozy. We had fun wandering the paths around the lagoon on our way to a fabulous Italian dinner! We will definitely come back to hike to the rapids and play on Ruby Lake again!
