“Fantastic Views From Just about Everywhere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

We just got back from a week at Dayspring Lodge where we shared the house with two other couples who are friends of ours. I can honestly say, this was one of the most enjoyable trips we have ever taken. The house is very large and has fantastic views from just about everywhere, especially the front deck, which became our favorite place to start and end the day. The serenity and beauty from that deck is priceless.

The owners were also extremely helpful, and gave us all sorts of tips on trails to hike, places to eat, and things to do, and every one of those things proved to be just right. Jacqui is an avid hiker and knows the area better than anyone, so the first morning we were there, she showed up at the door with four pages of handwritten notes on all kinds of suggestions for activities. We ended up using it almost as a checklist and were able to complete almost the entire list.

Mark offered to “drive” a large boat we rented and we all had a wonderful tour of Kootenay Lake, including a stop for a picnic lunch in a beautiful secluded beach on the other side of the lake.

The entire Kaslo area is a nature lover’s paradise, so if you like hiking and having been there, you need to include it in your “bucket list.” The same goes for the town itself. It’s small, peaceful, beautiful, and friendly. Idyllic.

I think about the only thing I could say that would have made our stay there even more perfect is that the upstairs floor needed another bathroom. There were four bedrooms on that floor but only one bathroom, and that bathroom was inside one of the bedrooms. So the other couple staying upstairs had to use one of the two bathrooms downstairs. Another thing to note: three of the bedrooms may be too bright for people to sleep in. One has no curtains, one has very light curtains, and the other has curtains on one window only.

But even with these small inconveniences, we would gladly go back to Dayspring Lodge. Everything else more than made up for that.
We are hoping to go back some time soon. Great vacation, great place!

We found the home dirty - very dusty, lots of dead bugs on windowsills and under furniture, cobwebs abounded on curtains and ceilings. When we arrived in the evening and entered the home we smelled leftover greasy food smell of something that they had cooked for dinner - it was not very pleasant. We stayed in the Master Suite which was accessable only by entering the home and going up the stairs as if it was your regular residence. We found this uncomfortable. The suite was roomy, but very outdated in the decor. The TV was miniature. The bathroom had a jacuzzi tub, but there was a horrible smell emanating from the toilet (raw sewage smell) that made it impossible to stay in the bathroom more than a minute - so a soak in the tub was out of the question. The shower was very tiny and one could barely turn around in it. The bed was nice, but the mini fridge in the room was very noisy so we had to unplug it. There was a tea pot and kettle in the room, but no option for coffee - and that was disappointing since we don't like tea. The package included a bottle of wine, but we were left a bottle of white which neither of us like. The massages included in the package were ok, but not the type we were expecting (we were not given a choice). The food was fairly good, but we were not served coffee until we were seated at breakfast and we found this very late to be having coffee - we like it first thing when we wake up and this was not an option. By far the creepiest thing was the proprietor's husband who sneaked up the stairs behind me one evening thinking he was being stealth, but actually he was breathing down my neck as I was climbing the stairs and I knew he was there. This left me feeling very uncomfortable and my husband and I could not wait to leave the place the next morning.
