Stayed in the yurt for 4 nights. It’s well furnished and has everything you need for basic cooking etc. The bathroom is one step outside the back door and is only for use of yurt guests. Decent shower and hot water. The toilet is a compost toilet and you have to stand on a narrow step to use it. The step is attached to the floor so it doesn’t wobble but could be an issue for anyone with balance or mobility issues. There’s a lot of spiders, little bugs and moths around cause you are in the woods so if you don’t like that, there is a fly swatter. If you really don’t like it, you might want to take some spray. The instructions in the bathroom say the staff turn the compost in the toilet every day or 2 but no one did in the 4 days we were there. You can request it which is a good idea as it starts to smell. We saw the owner when we checked in and other than telling us how to turn on the heater, didn’t really offer any additional info. Had to go back to the office the next day to get the key he said was in the yurt. Other reviews mentioned canoe for use but they don’t have that anymore. The property is for sale and although it is beautiful I just got the feeling their heart isn’t in it anymore. We had to go hunting for where to put garbage. There was firewood and a fire pit and a bbq and we asked for a lighter from the office. The wifi does not work inside the yurt. It is strongest on the deck and in the field outside. Adjust your entertainment choices bas d on this as you can’t rely on Netflix’s or anything wifi based. There are no games or DVD’s available that we could find. It’s a really unique experience and I’d do it again but I would pack differently and assume that I have to provide all my own water toys etc as they no longer are available. About a 15 minute drive to Nakusp for grocery shopping.

We stayed in the yurt for three nights. It had all that we could've wanted, and the hosts were very friendly and helpful. The kitchen was well equipped, with a full sized refrigerator, full sized gas stove (no microwave oven), and there were two plush bathrobes for us to use during our stay. The head of the comfy queen bed was underneath one of the two z Windows, and there were two doors on the yurt, the front door going out on to a patio deck with furniture, and a view of the Arrow lake. We could walk right down to the lake for a swim ( the floor of the lake was grassy, and not hard on our feet). There was no air conditioner, but it cooled off at night and there was a fan to use. There was also a wood stove in the yurt. The yurt itself was a nice big size. The bathroom was in a separate little from on step outside the back door. It had a stall shower, (which was temperamental at times), as well as a compositing type toilet (a first for us). This was an extremely private place to unwind, quiet and peaceful. It was a bit rustic, but it had everything we needed. The town of Naksup was 10 miles up the road, and we were able to restock our groceries, buy gas for the car and do our laundry. There is also a nice hike nearly at the end of the Nakusp Hot Springs road. It is called the Hot Springs Trail, 8 km long winding through a dense forest completely carpeted with moss. These were also a number of small streams and waterfalls along the route with little log bridges or boardwalks to walk on so that our feet wouldn't get wet. I'd stay in the yurt gain in a heartbeat, and hope to do so in the future. And next time I stay there I will try hiking the trail up to Kimbol Lake.

I've travelled all over the world and now have another WOW place to recommend. The cabin was spacious, modern and well equipped. The kitchen and BBQ area have everything you need to enjoy your stay. But plan to spend most of your time on the resort grounds soaking in the views. The mountains surrounding the lake are stunning. Bill and Sue provide all the equipment needed to enjoy their little piece of heaven, in total comfort.

We stayed in a cabin over the weekend in May and it was absolutely perfect. The cabins are beautiful, stocked, and our hosts, bill and Susan, were absolutely wonderful. This is a breathtaking area and we will absolutely be back. Be sure to check out Susan's pottery for sale, it's amazing!
