Beautifully relaxing, slightly rainy, and rejuvenating place in the Kootenays. We came for our second anniversary and it reminds me of the Airbnb we got married at in Seaward, AK. The wood stove and the accessible lake walks were our favorite parts. So many gems to explore in the region from hot springs to lake swims. Thank you for being gracious hosts.
