Feels like home, only better!

Fiona from Sherwood Park, Canada
Date: Sep-01-2016 for a stay in Aug 2016

This was our second stay at Cottonwood and we had a wonderfully relaxed visit. Kaslo is a beautiful little community in every way. Beautiful to look at. Beautiful people. Beautiful weather. Beautiful cottage. Beautiful view. Every need was met and when it came time to head home, we didn't want to leave. We really enjoyed the restaurants, as well, and spent a lovely afternoon at Ainsworth Hot Springs. Book you holiday at Cottonwood Cottage. You won't regret it!

Fabulous cottage and location!

Melissa from Calgary, Canada
Date: May-25-2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a fabulous stay at Cottonwood Cottage! Several of us met at the cottage for a reunion and it made for a perfect weekend getaway. The house is beautiful, clean, massive, and very well kept. The kitchen and dining area are well suited for cooking for large groups. The bedrooms are cozy and well located throughout the house... and the upstairs shower is amazing!!

We went for beach walks and local hikes, sat around the large fire pit at night, went to the hot springs, and spent time checking out cute Kaslo. There's lots to do in the area and the cottage is ideally situated in a quiet, beautiful location that offers lots of privacy.

The only things to note are that there is extremely limited cell phone reception at the cottage and the wifi only works sporadically throughout the house. Other than that, it was perfect.

Peace. Quiet. Contentment. Beauty. I love it here!

Beautiful spot! I am hesitant to write a great review because people will flock to Cottonwood Cottage and there won't be any space left for me next summer! Lol. I wish I could stay here forever. The lake is peaceful, quiet, huge, and incredibly beautiful. The cottage is gorgeous! Get online and reserve your spot as soon as possible! You won't regret it.

Great Place for a Peaceful Holiday

Paul from Calgary, Canada
Date: Jun-30-2015 for a stay in Jun 2015

This was a great place to spend time with my wife. It was a big property for the two of us but we really did enjoy the peacefulness of the stay. Sitting and listening to the birds was great and also watching the fish jump right out in front of the property.

Rugged unmatched beauty

MAZ-6556 from Kelowna, Canada
Date: Jul-06-2015

If you are looking for a place to take your large group, look no further. This home is awesome. We loved the location, easy to find and remote enough to be peaceful and tranquil yet only 15 minutes to Kaslo. We rented a canoe from Kaslo Kayaks as well as a very old boat from Woodbury. These things allowed us to extend our fun. We were a group of 12 that ranged in age from 80 to 6 . Some people were athletic and paddled the canoe all the way to Kaslo..others preferred taking the boat out ( which can be tied to the dock at the house ) this place is 3 houses away from the Shroeder Creek Marina so gas is right there. People in the group that were not as active enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and BBQING, awesome kitchen and BBQ. The laundry room is great with new washer and dryer. This is a huge house with tons of great decks to enjoy private times alone . There is great outdoor furniture to encourage outdoor time. I highly recommend this place for a big group of varied people because there is so many different things to do here. We loved the fire pit...but be careful and check if there is a fire ban. We did not know there was a ban and 4 nights in the ban took effect ... The fine was $ 375.00 but it was waived as we explained we had no idea. The wifi was sporadic and our struggle to use it was the worst thing that happened... This says it all..there was no disappointment except the bedding and towels could of been nicer and the home could be better maintained... Things I would recommend bringing are - after bite - there is a lot of bugs when you are outdoors and there are some here. Bring flashlights, there was a huge storm and we lost power for a the night and it was tricky getting around a new place in the dark...bring toiletries, they supplied a bit of toilet paper and paper towel but no soap or shampoo or conditioner...we did bring all that ourselves so that was ok. Our whole group had a great time and we would highly recommend this to anyone !!!
