Beautiful furnished 4 bed/2 bath guest house on 2 acres. Rural, secluded setting with views yet close to amenities of Silverton / New Denver area (within 5-10 min.) Adventure is out the doorstep with many backroads, trails and backcountry to access!
We are unique by offering affordable getaways for families or groups in a mountain setting. We are 5-10 min. drive to the amazing beaches of Slocan Lake and near to access some of BC's most beautiful parks such as the Stunning Valhalla Provincial Park, Goat Range and Historical Sandon, Kokanee Glacier Park and there are trails to access just out the door! The space has been totally renovated and/or new from 2008 - Current and is very efficient and cozy all year round. Maintenance and cleanliness are of high standards, so you can expect comfort :) The area is remote, secluded and quiet but yet close to a secondary road for easy access and quick trips to amenities or adventure. You can bike or hike right from the property or for a quick drive there are many more attractions such as Hot Springs, Villages, Cafes and Restaurants, Markets and Artisan Shops.
All guests are welcome to use our complimentary snowshoes to navigate on our 2 acres ( not for use in backcountry ) in the winter. There is also firewood supplied for the optional Earth Woodstove for a cozy atmosphere in the cooler months. We have high speed access and WiFi available as well as a washer and dryer on site. There is a TV, DVD Player and Stereo for your entertainment as well as an assortment of books and games. The guests have access to a loft office space if required and in summertime, there are berries and herbs to enjoy from the garden. The land is perfect for snowshoeing, light tour skiing, sliding or you can roast a hot dog in our outdoor firepit area. Summertime offers lots of flat, open green space for sports, a park like play area for children, shaded old growth forest spaces and a bbq from our spacious deck overlooking the mountains. Lots of seating for larger families or groups, sleeps 10 people comfortably with access to the land for privacy and more guests. Parking is open and easy access to the Mountain Cottage.
Interaction with guests
My interaction with guests depends on my schedule and time of year. I am usually very good at communication leading up to arrival with lots of tips and directions :) I do my best to be available upon arrival or departure. Depends on guests time arrival and how much they want to explore! In summertime I am more flexible to tour or show guests some attractions in the area. There are lots of maps and brochures for guests at the Mountain Cottage for them to self guide themselves as well.
Other things to note
Please note there is wildlife in the area, keep your gear and food contained. Close all doors and windows before departing as we don't want the resident squirrels moving into the house! Be respectful of noise, this is a rural quiet area and folks on acreages up here live here for that reason. Please note that this is generally a self catered or self guided trip for your family or group. ( Special requests are considered however, please inquire with me ) I have lived in the area full time for several years, know the community and area well :) Keep bbq clean after each use and tread lightly on the land and our piece of paradise.
Please respect that this is our pride and joy. This house has been built with love, tears and lots of hard work. Every stone, rock, piece of wood has been placed with care. We are happy to share this lovely space with guests but we ask you to take care of it as you would your own home, if not better. Our furniture and mattresses are newer and comfy, we have collected pieces to add to the feel of the Mountain Cottage and insist on safe and careful respect. Small children and pets are to be attended to at all times and cleaned up afterwards whether its outside or in the house. Pets are not allowed at all on any furniture, upstairs or on carpeted area. In cooler months they can come inside and sleep on tiled or rock areas. Damage deposits will be withheld and utilized if necessary at our decretion. If there are any complaints from neighbors or any misconduct whatsoever the tenants or guests will be asked to leave or terminate their stay immediatly with no refunds. We have had wonderful and respectful guests so far and would like to continue with the good karma and energy that is on the Mountain with our Getaway Cottage and the use of our land. Thanks.

Some of my favorite things to do are skiing, kayaking, gardening, writing and travelling! I love to meet new people and spend time with my children and family. I have always lived in or near the mountains and find I am most at home in this environment. I was born off the Coast of BC, grew up in the Rockies, and now in my adult years I have had the pleasure to experience the beauty of the Valhallas, Goat Range and now Rossland Ranges. Travels have brought me as far as the Swiss Alps and the Andes of Ecuador. I have a love of wild & medicinal plants and harvesting berries of all kind! One day I dream of building and living in an eco treehouse and being self sustainable, I would love to teach those skills to my own children and grandchildren!
