These comments from recent guests: “Hi Lorna. We had a lovely time there. Such a beautiful spot!… We really appreciated how clean and well-cared-for the cottage was, so we tried to keep it in good order during our stay. Your cleaning person is definitely a cleaning wizard. I didn’t see a speck of dirt. Everything was neat and tidy!”
We are thrilled to announce the world premiere of the Cottage in Hills video. Filmed, edited and produced by Kerry McArthur and Mark Wolfe, the bright lights at Kootenay Business TV (KBTV). In addition to this lovely show ‘n’ tell video about the Cottage in Hills, KBTV has produced a multitude of short films on cool things happening in this part of the world. Check them out!
A big shout-out to our colleagues at Ocean Adventures Charter company. Our dear friends Eric and Trish run this amazing operation from their 54-foot ship, the Great Bear II. Their coastal trips are utterly deluxe and offer unparalleled comfort and privacy to experience B.C.’s most remote and spectacular settings. On their ocean voyages guests may see whales, dolphin, bears (including grizzlies and possibly the rare white spirit bear), all manner of seals and other marine mammals, and the amazing biodiversity of BC’s rich coastal areas.
They are also passionate conservationists, advocates for bears of all types… and all-round amazing people. They were recently instrumental in convincing the BC government to finally heed massive public outcry and ban the hunting of grizzly bears. This is a huge stride forward for the conservation of these majestic (and endangered) creatures, and this little guy, for one, thanks them!
Thanks to recent guest Ron J. and his lovely partner for dashing off this charming poem. They obviously enjoyed their stay at The Cottage in Hills!
The Cottage in Hills
We came upon a cabin
Tucked in a forest glade
Within, a magic comfort
Like Hobbits would have made.
A couple days of serene rest
And on again we tracked,
With longing wishes that some day
Would see us coming back.
For fall of 2017 we are offering a super deal: stay three nights and get your 4th night FREE… plus a pair of free passes to the relaxing, clean, healing Nakusp Hot Springs.
All this at our affordable shoulder season rate. This is absolutely your best value of the year, so book now to stay at your personal “little house on the mountain.”
Queen bed in master bedroom, fresh new bedding
A final note: the province-wide fire ban is now lifted, following what was a decidedly nerve-wracking summer for most of BC and parts of Alberta. We did not have any fires in our area but nonetheless the possibility was as real as the next lightning strike. We thank all our guests for being super-careful (smoking is allowed outdoors only, on the porch).
