Charming lake-view retreat with private bubbling hot tub and amazing lake views

The perfect spot for a small family or a group of friends to come relax, this lakeview Lake Idabel home makes it easy to unwind in style. Offering a soothing private hot tub, easy lake access, a Ping-Pong table, and a billiards table, fun is around every corner.

Nestled right on the shores of Lake Idabel, where you'll find numerous walking trails and lake activities, this home is the perfect destination for when you want to get away from it all. In the summer, enjoy free access to boats, life jackets, and oars. In the winter, the snow-covered slopes of Big White are just 30 miles away.

Kick off the dirt from a day of exploring and toss your dirty clothes in the private washer/dryer. The rental is flooded with incredible lake views and natural light, making it easy to soak up the area's natural beauty even when you're inside. Catch up with a good book by the gas fireplace, or pick out a DVD from the provided library for a night with your friends.

Chefs will love cooking up a storm in the kitchen, which is fully equipped with high-end stainless-steel appliances and lots of counter space—or if the weather is nice, showing off their grilling skills on the gas BBQ. After dinner, play a game of Ping-Pong or billiards, or soak up the spectacular views as you melt the stress away in the hot tub.

With everything you need to slip into vacation mode, this charming British Columbia home is the perfect place for your next lake-side trip!

Over all we thought we had a very nice, clean and well equipped suite. I am very pleased that that is the rental that we choose. What we weren't that equip to deal with is the journey to the location> We are city people and coming to the wilderness where we are not connected is not what we are use to. It was a little unsettling at first but we slowly figured things out. Don't travel at night if you are not sure 100% where the location is. Zero cell service on the roads. Make sure you have a good vehicle to get up to the location. Very bumpy roads.

We had a great time at Idabel Lake Resort. We were looking for a place that would allow us to "unplug", and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The resort is a short 10-minute drive off the highway down some dirt roads, which means no traffic, which just added to the serenity of the location. Our unit (Owls Rest) was large, clean and had sufficient amenities to make the stay very comfortable. The unit had a large balcony with a hot tub and bbq overlooking the lake. Both were used daily. We truly enjoyed our stay, and would definitely return again.

My family love this suite very much.

Good point:
--the couch, the lazy chair and the beds are all comfortable.
--the hot tub is very good to relax when the weather is cool
--the **** staff is provided well, especially coffee machine

bad point:

---only the drink water is not filtered good enough, we have to bring 2 case of pure water from Costco.

This rental was beautiful with a few broken qualities! Upon arrival suite was clean, but as evening arrived we were eaten by mosquitos, because of broken screens in bed rooms, wetried to fixed with tape found. 1 window no screen!!! When we tried to shower main bath it wouldn't drain had to plunged it ..yuck!!!! O my god the **** that came up? went to BBQ our supper could not get any heat looked underneath notice the bottom tray was rotted and falling out. We manufactured a temp fix in order to use. At the docks we were greeted with water filled boats with beer cans floating ,oars in need of repair also canoes, paddle boat filled with water . Tried several times to reach caretaker, when we finally did make contact he was more than helpful. We did point out the problems in suite...Not sure maybe he was on days off when we were there? Disappointed from last years stayed. ( I took pictures ) because of the beauty and tranquil setting and being together as a family I would recommend it. but needs to have its luster and charm reinstated.

My Girlfriend and I spent the may long weekend in the owls nest retreat, it was a beautiful spot very peaceful and fully stocked with everything we needed, we spent time canoing on the lake, bbqing and roasting marshmellows by the fire while visiting with some other cabin owners.

I spent a couple of nights before Christmas with my kids at Owls Rest and it was very relaxing and peaceful.The suite was spacious and there was even a bathroom that was wheelchair accessible with bars beside the toilet which allowed me to stay there.(there are stairs up to the unit though)Kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils etc, beds were comfy with very nice bedding.Games room right next door provided entertainment with pool table and air hockey table.Gorgeous location and not far from Kelowna.

Loved everything...the setting, the unit itself, the lake, the weather. For such a lovely setting there were very few people. One negative.....
The Owl's nest master bedroom is right above the lift pump for the septic system. (Life waste water up from the lake level to the septic level) When it engages it is quite loud in that room and then turns off with a pop. If you are a lightwill keep you awake.

Around 12 of us rented places at Idabel lake, we all work "Up North" so have tried to plan a get together for a long time. We were impressed especially with The Owls Rest suite which was by far the best out of all the accommodation.The suite was large to fit everyone to eat together and socialise. Well stocked with everything you needed for the stay, was just like being in our own kitchen. we enjoyed it so much we booked to go next week again.

Perfect getaway, just have to make sure you check your email before you get up there as there isn't anyone there to check in, and nobody was there to help us find our room, so we had to drive back to where there was service, and for the owls rest it needs a sign outside to say where it is, rather then on the inside of the room

We loved our stay at the the Owls Rest.The view from our suite wasbreathtaking and peaceful.The suite was large and well equipped with a huge kitchen, dining room, living room and bonus sun room.The master suite is amazing with full windows with great views of the lake.It is beautiful.The second bedroom was great too and my daughter loved it.She loved the TV with the VHS player built in.She went to the games room next door and grabbed about a dozen old classic disney VHS movies and watched them in her room.The games room beside us was also awesome!Pool table, air hockey, ping pong and fusball.I felt like a kid again in a winter paradise.It was nice to be able to skate out on the lake just steps from our suite.I only wish we could have stayed another three days and planned a few more things.There is so much to do up there whether it is winter or summer.In the summer there is canoeing and paddleboats, fishing and swimming.In the winter there is skating, ice-fishing, snow shoeing, cross country skiingand ski-doing.Next time I will definitely come prepared with bringing skis and having a ski-doo.The chalet is less than an hour from town and is out of cell reception.I was actually happy about this as I was truly able to unwind and not have the distractions of texts and emails.It was a much needed break from the busy rat race and I can't wait to go back

The location, view and surroundings are amazing. The place is very serene and relaxing - perfect getaway from the big city. Note that there were quite a few spiders inside (winter) so something to consider.
