“If you want to relax and get away from it all, this is it, and so much more”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

I got my dates mixed up, and we arrived a day early, but despite this, Lorna the manager, went out of her way to ensure that everything was ready and more. The setting was beautiful, and although the Cottage looked rustic (don't let that deter you), it is wonderfully appointed with everything you need for a brief or extended stay. The initial lack of internet service is quickly offset by the sheer beauty and tranquility of the setting. Nestled into the hillside, the Cottage offers an incredible view of snow capped peaks either from the porch or the front yard where we kicked back and shared a glass of wine and toasted our arrival.

Lorna explained her efforts to procure internet service (it's not called Cottage in Hills for nothing), and encouraged us to meander about her yard and porch for cell service, while the resident chickens clucked their concern. Yes, fresh eggs are available from the Fowlty Tower's residents, and not to worry, cell service is available 10 minutes down the road in New Denver. It was actually great not to be "connected" for 3 days.

Lorna provides a wealth of information on local activities as well as a collection of stories about the history of the area in books and newspaper articles found within the cottage. As a result we explored the wilderness, enjoyed beaches, and were able to let our dog Charlie watch over her new territory from the porch. A grand time was had by all, and all would highly recommend the Cottage in Hills to anyone looking for a beautiful retreat.

So glad you had a grand time and most importantly that your dog Charlie enjoyed her stay! George is correct, there's no internet reception inside the cottage BUT outdoors just a few steps down the lane you can pick up a signal (both wireless wi-fi and cell signal). For our guests it's been a satisfactory balance between having a rest from electronic distractions while still being able to communicate with the outside world if necessary. After all, the point is to kick back and enjoy an old-school "stay at the cottage." with time for reading, games, walks and exploring our beautiful area.

“Peaceful and comfortable retreat in beautiful countryside”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed three nights in Lorna and Wayne's peaceful, cozy cottage on a beautiful property. It was wonderful to come back to the cottage after long days of work to a comfortable bed and great countryside views. The cottage is well designed, and we appreciated the personal touch from the hosts. Lorna supplied great local coffee -- a must -- and the home-made breakfasts prepared by Wayne in the morning were absolutely to die for! Wayne and Lorna are amazing hosts.

I would not hesitate to return to this beautiful cottage and would recommend it to anyone who is travelling in the area.

Glad you were pleased with your stay. To be clear for future guests, we don't normally provide breakfast. The Cottage in Hills is self-catering with a full kitchen amply supplied with all dishes and appliances you'll need to make your own meals. This guest is a colleague of my husband's so he provided some breakfasts at our residence but that's NOT the normal deal at The Cottage in Hills, it's not a B&B, it's a self-catering vacation rental cottage.

“Tranquil, private and beautifully located homestyle cabin”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in August 2015

Cottage in Hills was the perfect destination for a romantic getaway. We loved how secluded and picturesque it was with easy access to the highway and near everything we wanted to be close to (but not too near). The cabin is very homey and comfortable and the wood burning stove made it that much cozier.

Lorna has lots of rules, but they are sensible and she is a gracious host. Sign up and enjoy a great experience at the Cottage :)

So glad you enjoyed your romantic getaway, Sean, we hope you'll visit us again soon. We have some rules (mainly for guests with a dog) to ensure the Cottage stays in good condition for future guests. Glad you enjoyed the wood-stove in the dining room, a cheerful, cozy spot to curl up with a book.

“Rejuvenated by this comfortable retreat in the forest near Slocan Lake.”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This tastefully furnished and fully equipped cottage provided the tranquil and comfortable retreat we were looking for. It was spotless, spacious for the two of us and perfect when our friends joined us for Thanksgiving weekend (with a bedroom on either end of the upper level). The master bedroom has a very convenient half-bath "ensuite." The hosts, Lorna & Wayne, ensured that we had everything we needed from kindling for the wood-burning fireplace to freshly picked chanterelle mushrooms (in season just now) and farm eggs. They were knowledgeable about the nearby hiking trails, parks, wildlife and mountains – all of which was important to us.

Fantastic views from this impeccably clean and well equipped cabin near the lake.
The cabin was thoughtfully stocked with books, movies and games for quiet down time.
The cabin is conveniently located yet feels like it is in a remote part of paradise.

Glad you enjoyed The Cottage In Hills. We hope you'll stay with us again. How about a winter getaway: cross-country or back-country skiing, soaking in the nearby hot springs, and cozy evenings by the crackling wood-stove?

“Most beautiful place I've ever seen”
Reviewed 4 July 2015 for a stay in July 2014

Staying at this place was more than PERFECT! The beautiful ceder trees, Slocan Lake and the great people made it more beautiful than I could ever imagine. Looking back now I've had the best time of my life. When I see the pictures I can't believe I've been there for a while and all I want is to go back to this place that's more beautiful than heaven can be.

Right now it's over 35 C degrees in Holland, I can't wait to have such a nice and chilly lake nearby! See you soon!
