COMMON AREAS

Parking area: for one car per accommodation (request if you need another space)

Deck before bridge: great area for morning coffee in the sun.

Island Deck: there are plenty of chairs and cushions for all. Here you will find your fire pit as well.

Two areas on river with chairs: each are pretty secluded and both are naturally relaxing and swimmable.

Natural Pond: swimmable, floating (Float toys supplied)

Firepit: 1st come 1st serve or share? If you have a fire the 1st night try to let the other guests have the next night. There is wood and fire-starter available. During fire bans, usually July-September we offer use of our 2 propane fire rings which you can either use on your deck or within the fire pit at the river. We charge for the propane used, just the cost of what we buy it for.

Things to do in the area:

Golden Ears Park, UBC forest, Wildplay and axe throwing, Dining, local shopping, farmers market, the Act theatre, etc., etc..(See activities below)

Garbage and Recycle: you are in the wilderness, there are many critters that would love to have an easy snack. Although we love them all, this will actually end up killing them.

there is a bear proof garbage can in the driveway as well as a recycle bin. Please us these cans instead of leaving garbage and recycle in the suite or kitchenette in tent. Do not leave food or garbage in or near tent. 

Leaving us: Check-out is 11 am, if we have no one arriving after you, we usually let you know and offer you the extra day at a very reduced rate or a late free check-out. We also offer you the river to conclude relaxing before you leave for a few hours after the check-out time as long as you are all packed up and we can proceed with cleaning.

There is no need to remove garbage or recycle, but it is very helpful if the dishes are done. Make sure you write in the comment book for others and us to read. Guests tend to leave phone chargers and cords as well as clothes hanging behind the bathroom door or bathing suits hanging in the shower. 

Don't forget to write a review or share a tweet, Facebook or something on the internet about your stay.

If you are interested in booking again, remember to book directly here to save the fees.

Let us know if your stay wasn't Relaxing, Romantic and Rejuvinating and we make every effort to accomplish this next time.

Activities on the property:

Remember the rocks and wooden paths can be slippery, the suspension bridge needs balance, use caution. 

Fishing: we have many fish varieties in the South Alouette River, rainbow trout all year round, coho and other salmon in the fall, steelhead in the winter are the main fish. 

We do have a limited supply of fishing equipment here for your use, just ask.

We have a great fishing hole right to the left of the island deck. For avid fishermen, the whole river is yours and seem accessible to many other nice holes and ares near by.

Tubing: if it is river tubing season, you will know it (July-September), we have an area on the river where it is the most exciting or scary (depending on the individual) where they voice their opinions while going through. We also have slow moving shallow areas where you can either float down or tie off to a tree and relax and enjoy. Our favourite is floating in our fresh natural pond, water is flowing but is very slow, read a book while floating, have a drink on the tub and just enjoy the sun and trees that surround you. We provide free floating tubes. There is also a pump on the river deck for filling tubes.

Swimming: We have 3 areas where you can swim on the property. Two are similar, one below the island deck and the other down down the path on the right of the deck. These areas are chest deep at the most and have a flow to them, good for swimming up river, see how long you can go! The other option is the pond, it is much slower but is flowing and is over your head in most areas. It is good for a nice relaxing dip on a hot summer day, some days I take 3-4 dips.

Lounging: there are 4 or more areas at the river set up to do this. The deck on the island has chairs, cushions (cushions in box) and a table. The other two are on the edge of the river, one just below the deck and the other with chairs and a table shaded on the edge of the nice view of the flowing river. The 4th area is just before the bridge, there is a bench and this is a great area for a sunny morning coffee.

Activities off the property:

Wildplay: an outdoor activity facility with tree top ropes course as well as axe throwing, just a couple minutes away.

Hiking: this is the place where we thrive, we have many many trails from easy to hard, short to long. If you are wanting a hike it is here, talk to us, we have been on them all.
