This is a hidden gem by the end of Vidette Lake. We stayed at the "Hudson" Cabin, and what a fantastic thing to wake up in the morning by the lake, three beavers and birds of prey, giving you the entertainment while eating bacon from the BBQ outside. The places was clean and the beds were comfy. The host (very friendly) gave us stories about the area and even took us on free trips to see the local nature sights; Fantastic!
It will take you about an hour on the Deadman Valley Road to get there, and keep your eyes open for the local wildlife on your way up. We even saw an eagle on our way down.
Remember to bring your own food. There was a big fridge with a small freezer at the Hudson Cabin, and both gas stove inside and a huge BBQ (gas) outside. There are no phone reception, but the host has a phone that works. Looks like the Hudson Cabin also would be nice in the wintertime, a huge wood-furnace inside + petroleum ovens.
While you are there, visit the Buddhist "Centre Of The Universe" and the local waterfalls, what great sights! The end Deadman Valley Road also connects to different backroads leading both north, and west, and you can easily come in from Loone Lake or Chasm.
Remember to fuel up and keep an be sure to have a spear tire.
Make sure to invite the host for dinner, he has got lots of great stories to tell, both from nature and the past history of the area, and maybe he can be convinced to take you on a short hike?
I brought my GF, my mother (nearly 70) and our infant (9 months old), and can't see there are ANY problems bringing a family. I know some of the people living in i.e. Kamloops, have their wedding-parties at this place, that has lots of beds for overnight guests.
Remember to call ahead and say when you are coming, since the host can not be on the phone 24/7, tending to his guests. There are canoes and boats and also a nice place to take your morning bath/swim at the lake. Lots of fish in the lake as well, if you bring your fishing permit.

Summary: Stay here if you want to experience nature, coziness and good company outside "the Grid". Wake up in the stunning silence of the forest and the lake. This is the real deal.
I will put some more pics on Panoramio / Google Earth

Room Tip: The Hudson Cabin, is maybe the most spectacular one, but there are other very nice cabins there as well. Talk with the host and he will guide you through what will suit your needs.

Rustic, quiet and beautiful - worth the drive up a very good gravel road. The cabin was clean, well equipped and had a fridge, stove, wood burning heater, running water and shower.
We stayed right near the water close to a dock so the kids could canoe and paddle boat (rent per day).
There is a communal fire pit but many nights we stayed on our large deck and just took in the lake view. There are many special treasures going to this great place - watch your wine - the horse is a bit of a lush :).

Room Tip: Docks cabin --- swimming pool = great lake (no actual pool though)
