I stayed for three nights and enjoyed it. Everything about the place was beautiful: the cabins, the pond around which the cabins have been built, the scenery, the mountains. Late at night everything is silent, except for the chirping of frogs in the pond. These are a great mixture of the rustic cabin-in-the-woods experience combined with all the amenities you could need (modern washrooms and kitchen facilities). I was actually surprised at just how great the amenities were, including excellent outdoor barbecues and cute little cast iron wood stoves for heating the cabins - wood is supplied. But there are no TVs and no cell reception here which is great if you are trying to "get away from it all". A 20 minute drive will bring you into the town of Lumby where you can do that, as well as your grocery shopping and banking if need be. If you're bringing the kids, there's a playground, and little rowboats that any beginner can use. The staff are unmatched in just how extraordinarily kind and helpful they were. The hike to the peak at the top of Echo Lake Forestry Road is fun though quite difficult and not for everyone. The other hikes nearby are more relaxing. Downsides: you have to bring bedding and towels, but that's the only extra thing, and it makes sense since the place is about the cabin, not a hotel, experience, and designed for lengthy (3-7 day) visits. We were also not supplied with cabin keys but we had the resort to ourselves so we didn't care.
