“A very beautiful winter getaway, if you get lucky”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

We had visited one of the cabins almost 10 years ago, and had ever since thought of spending Christmas or New Year once in the future. Every year, we were either trying to book too late, or chose another destination. We made it this year, and booked cabin#1 for 4 nights over Christmas. We arrived the first evening to little snow, but then got a 20cm dump of fluffy snow overnight, which turned everything into a true winter wonderland. The cabins are really big (they have bedding for 6), and the big windows make the view at night quite romantic, especially as long as there is snow on the trees (the pretty snow from the 1st night got mostly blown off on the 3rd day), and when you find the trick to turn on the deck light, which lights up the trees from underneath.

A few things dampen the romance though: just about everything seems to come with an annoying fan, a timer, or both (even the deck light has a timer, which you have to reset every 15 minutes). There is no wood stove nor fireplace, not even a fake one. We tried to make up for it by switching to the log channel on TV. The TV has hundreds of satellite channels, except that the signal is so week that the picture, even the sound, came garbled on most of them (including the log channel). It might have been better to just do away with the TV's, and advertise the place like what is still our #1 romantic getaway (Baker Creek near Lake Louise): get away from it all - no TV in the cabins! Another romance damper was the very visible and ugly red sign on the door to the deck warning that children under 12 could not go there unaccompanied. Over-protective, or did some idiot come up with a lawsuit because their teenager managed to fall over the 4" tall fully-latticed railing?

BTW, BBQ lovers might really adore the place, because the deck is really huge, and yet looked quite private (maybe the teenager in question just got lost on the deck itself...)

Room Tip: Cabin #1 is at the beginning of the row of cabins, and therefore enjoys the view from 3 sides. The d...

Recent stay during a snowmobile trip of Blue River/McBride - worth the hour drive - use of heated garage for sled maintenance, dry room for gear, clean cabin with all amenities. We will be sledding McBride/Valemount/Blue River again in January - wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: They have two large cabins (4 beds) and 3 small cabins (3 beds) each with additional sofa.

a nice tranquile place out of town with fantastic views of canoe mountain. The owns Al, and Suzy are fantastic hosts. The cabins are clean and roomy and nice and quiet. The grounds are clean and quiet. You are set back from the highway so you don't hear the traffic. Lots of hummingbirds and other birds that make this place a nice relaxing getaway.
