Fall SALE: Sept/Oct special, best time of year

Fall 2018 SALE rate:  Miss out on vacation time this summer?  Don’t fret — during September and October we’re making it extra-easy for you to retreat to The Cottage in Hills for some R&R.

Enjoy an outdoor fire in our fireplace

Fall is the best time of year here, with warm clear days and crisp starry nights.  Hike or cycle our amazing mountain trails, go jump in the lake, cook a simple dinner in the cabin’s fully-equipped kitchen and then enjoy a romantic campfire under the stars.

Sound like the perfect fall vacation?  Book now to take advantage of our 2018 Fall SALE rate: $175 (double-occupancy) per night. Plus, stay a bit and your 7th night is FREE!

As well, in fall our summertime four-night minimum is waived; in the fall we allow 2-night minimum stays — this makes our cabin the perfect setting for a weekend getaway.  Of course we encourage longer stays in our lovely and private cottage in the woods, but we understand that sometimes you can only afford a mini-break.

This is a Cottage in Hills web-site offer only.  We want to reward you for finding us and booking with us directly, this rate is not available through our Airbnb or TripAdvisor listings or the other online booking sites we use.  Call now to book (250-358-2722) or use the response form on this web-site (Rates, Dates & Bookings page) to shoot us a message. 

Yay, fall vacay!

See you soon…  Your host Lorna at The Cottage in Hills

Summer has sprung, new photos May 2018

Spring came roaring around the corner and it’s already glorious summer at the Cottage in Hills.

Lovely flowers greet you as you drive up to your destination, where you’ll enjoy an expansive, totally private yard… and jumping in the lake is less than 3 minutes away!

Picture yourself relaxing on the porch swing, idling away a warm afternoon with a good book.  Or relax on the lawn with a cold beverage and a view of the Valhalla mountains.

And be sure to meet our ambassador dog, Chacalita, who welcomes you to the idyllic Cottage in Hills.

Love bears? A shout-out to colleagues at Ocean Adventures Charter Co.

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!

Drool over the amazing photos on their web-site: http://www.oceanadventures.bc.ca/  and get in touch with them about their amazing trips.

 

 

Hobbits? Perhaps.


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.
