Up to ten lucky guests will enjoy this charming home and its companion cottage located right on the shore of beautiful Christina Lake. Enjoy the view from multiple decks or the furnished patio, head out on the lake in one of the provided kayaks, or just dangle your feet in the cool water right off your private dock.

Located just four miles from the U.S. border, Christina Lake is a prime summertime destination for boating, swimming, and other watersports. The fishing is excellent, and as this area serves as the nexus of the Dewdney Trail, Kettle Valley Railroad Trail, and the Trans Canada Trail, visiting hikers are sure to have the time of their lives.

This rental comprises a main house that sleeps six, and a separate, elevated cottage that sleeps four. If you're traveling with a smaller group, the main house can be rented on its own.

Back at the Retreat, start each day with a cup of coffee as you take in the panoramic lake and mountain views from the patio. Plan out your days with the free WiFi, relax on your very own 100-foot beach, or set off on the lake in one of two kayaks. In the evening, fire up the gas grill and have a family cookout, bring along a few DVDs for a movie night, or dive into a good book as you warm yourself by the gas fireplace. The family dog is also welcome to join you for an additional nightly fee.

Get ready for a trip filled with fun and adventure. Reserve this lakefront paradise today!

We absolutely loved our stay here. The cabin had lots of space inside and out. We beach is sandy, and the lounge chairs are comfy. We couldn't get the wifi working and the cell reception is patchy, but we didn't mind. Would definitely book here again!

The beach is lovely and the house is well equipped.

The beach is fantastic and the dock is great. Warm afternoons in the lake. A great summer retreat

What we loved is the private dock, private beach, access to kayaks, ample bedrooms, quiet bay. What we didn’t love was the number of upgrades needed, that had been addressed by us and others previous years. New doors and windows would be great. You have to have them open in the evening to cool house off... but beware... 100’s of 1000’s of tiny flies with invade. We sprayed Raid every morning. Also, I tried to book for 2021 and there was a price increase. I get it, they happen... but a $2800 increase I would say is beyond crazy. House is wonderful, but unfortunately will be looking elsewhere for future rentals. There are much larger homes, with more than one full bathroom, more amenities for FAR less than $1000 per night.
Manager response:
Hi, Courtney! We appreciate you sharing your thoughts on Bayside Retreat Plus Sleep House with us. This home was built several decades ago, and the owners are continuously updating and improving the home each year. We are recommending new windows or screens to help eliminate the fly issue as much as possible. We are reevaluating the rates for this home next year and hope you will seriously consider returning. Thank you!

We had a wonderful time here! The property had everything we needed to feel right at home. We will definitely be coming back!

We always have a wonderful time staying at Bayside Retreat and it's the reason we keep coming back yearly. I highly recommend it.
Mike M. Sep 2019
The whole experience was great, the rental company was easy to deal with, very friendly and the App they have is awesome!
the cabin is perfect, nice layout, beds were comfy and the whole place was clean. The lot to which the cabin sits on is the best part though, big sandy beach, plenty of lounging options and gets the sun all day! the dock worked perfect for mooring the boat, its nice having it 25' away, can jump in and go whenever you want.
we will be renting again for sure!

Spacious, relaxing place to stay.Parking off of the main road. Well equipped kitchen.

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Bayside. A quiet bay, great for hours of fun and relaxing in the water. We were a little nervous about no air conditioner in the heat, but the trees sure keep the house shaded. Open the windows at night and in the morning, close everything up for the day, and it stays very comfortable!! Some of the screens don’t fit and doors don’t seal so we had to deal with some flying insects in the evenings, but nothing of major concern. The kayaks provided great enjoyment, thank you so much for supplying those.We just arrived home today, and are already missing the lake. I have already inquired about renting for next year!! We are 2 parents and 3 grown children (16-23) and the home suited us perfectly!! My 19 year old was in the bunkhouse and thought she was so grown up and ‘moved out’! A beautiful place, we will be back!!

I was disappointed that there was no one to contact when we had problems getting into the the house and the the lock on the door jambed it took us hours until we finally got in, also we weregild there was wifi and we didn't get it until monday we were there saturday. Everything after that was great. There should be someone you can contact on the weekend if anything happens not monday to friday.

We spent a week at the Bayside Retreat at the end of June, 2019.We brought 4 grandchildren with us and we all imensly enjoyed the vacation.It was a perfect blend of lounging at the lake and taking challenging hikes.We would definetly recommend this as a perfect vacation spot.
Jody B. Oct 2018
We really enjoyed our stay. Lots of space for everybody to roam and everything you would need for a holiday. Stayed during the week and it was very quiet. We were a bit disappointed with the housekeeping but overall we loved it!
James P. Sep 2018
Fantastic Location right on the lake with a beautiful sandy beach.Very nice neighbourhood with friendly neighbours.Large, well equipped house.The downstairs of this property was very nicely renovated.Would definitely stay again.
Lori W. Aug 2018
A wonderful time at the Bayside Retreat!Kayaking and enjoying the dock was great for us and our dogs! A third queensize bed would have been great and a ceiling fan on the Patio/table deck, plus installing a railing in the tub/shower for older guests. It was a great vacation for us, we thoroughly enjoyed the cabin!Thank you for a wonderful vacation experience!
Heather M. Aug 2018
We had a great 2 week vacation at the Bayside Retreat!There was plenty of room for our 2 families and the rooms and beds were very comfortable.The beach and wharf were in good shape.The neighbours were very friendly and chatty.We did have to clean out the barbecue before it would work but everything else was in excellent condition.It was great to meet Bob, the owner too!
Eryn P. Jul 2018
This is our 6th year at Bayside Retreat. The upgrades done since last year were really appreciated. Everything was great.
Susan V. Sep 2017
The house is clean, well stocked and on a lovely sandy stretch of beach with a stunning dock.We had a great stay here, would definitely return.
Cathy D. Aug 2017
We were two families sharing the property, and overall it was a fantastic place to spend days by the lake.Fantastic location, great dock, great sandy area and lawn.Although the furnishings and decor are somewhat dated, the kitchen is very well equipped and clean, washer and dryer are newer and work well and the beds/linens comfortable.Our only major concern was that some window screens were in need of replacement/repair due to ill-fit or holes, allowing bugs in.The management company has indicated they will look into thIs.It would also be nice if towels for outdoor use were provided, as we did not bring any with us, and if the BBQ could be replaced or cleaned and repaired.These things were minor compared with an overall great stay, we would definitely return!

The location of this cabin makes it an ideal holiday retreat.
For the rental cost of the cabin the window and door screens on the main level NEED to be replaced. There are huge gaps and therefore allow many bugs and critters into the cabin. Evenings in the cabin were almost unbearable between the heat and the bugs.
Daytime is great and the cabin provides everything needed for a fabulous holiday.
