Lakefront Cottage with Deck, Boat Access, Shared Dock, and Amazing Views

Contact Vacasa for discounted weekly and monthly stays!

This lovely British Columbia cottage will charm you instantly with its truly stunning lake views and cozy interior! Perched right on the tranquil waters of Idabel Lake, this unique rental is the perfect destination for your next backwoods getaway.

This cottage gives you free access to the resort's boats on a first come, first serve basis. Guests can help themselves to the oars, life jackets, and boats among the six rowboats and four canoes. You'll also enjoy a playground and a firepit, along with a great location just 30 miles from Big White Ski Resort.

Wake up to idyllic views of the lake each morning, then fix a delicious breakfast in the kitchen, which is outfitted with a fridge and freezer, microwave, and an electric oven with four burners. Step outside and follow the stairs from the deck down to a semi-private dock, where you can drop in a line and try to catch a fresh fish dinner.

Back inside, curl up by the small electric fireplace on colder nights, watch a DVD, or gather for a family board game at the round dining table. In the warmer months, pour yourself a glass of wine on the deck while you're grilling dinner.

We loved this cabin, it’s been modernized yet did well to keep the genuine bits and bolts. A small yet comfortable beds! Hot shower. We’ll be back. Thank you!

The cottage is such a relaxing place to get away and switch. Everything we needed to cook was there, the multiple decks and docks provided great views. Such a great bonus to have use of the canoes at the resort. We will be back for sure!

This cabin was so beautiful! Loved the second level deck with the twinkly lights! Was so nice to have stairs to the lake. We will definitely be coming back.

We had a girls weekend at this cabin and it was perfect! The games room was open, we had a private dock, and the interior was nicely renovated and everything was working perfectly! We will definitely be coming back in the summer so we can use more of the facilities.

Great location easy to find, pleased with the furnishings and entertainment that was provided. Would definitely come back to this place
The wifi sucked considering we had to pay for it and the games room was closed because of covid which was expected

The only real complaint is cottage 2 blocked the entrance and drive way for the entire stay and had no considering of moving the vehicle so we had to walk backwards and forwards to the car

there is a great view from the patio, and the use of the row boats was a plus.

Beautiful little cottage with everything we needed! Quiet lake and was so great to disconnect from the world for a few days.
Beds in the loft were very comfortable.
Loved having access to the rowboats and canoes. The private shared dock was beautiful. Games room, park and field in the common area was a hit with my kids!
Sarah M. Jul 2020
We loved the cabin and the atmosphere of it all. Was nice to unplug and enjoy the deck, dock and lake!

Boondock cottage was perfect. Cozy space, well stocked with everything you need for your stay. Great selection of movies and games for the family and outdoor space and dock are impeccable. Highly recommend this for a family getaway.

Caving was lovely had everything we needed. Loved the private dock and enjoyed the canoes. Kids enjoyed the Walkie-talkies. The ground squirrels were so cute. There was a nail coming a bit lose up on the top stair that needs to be hammered in. Excellent collection of movies and kids loved there was an extra cable to connect their switch.
Meghan H. May 2020
Always love our stays at Idabel but this is the best cottage there. Very comfortable beds and linens. Love the private dock.

Excellent rental experience. A great little cabin for a get away for my wife and I.

We came over from the UK for a Canadian Experience and Idabel Lake really helped provide that. The cottage was basic, yes, but had everything you needed for a real getaway.

What was Brilliant :
The "help yourself" canoes
The view
Seeing and hearing Beavers and Loons from the balcony
The peace and quiet

What was Good:
The cottage was basic (in a good way I would say) but had everything we needed and wanted.Perhaps a couple more games?
It was clean and easy to use (although we never did find out how to get the TV to work - but we didn't ask anyone as having a break from the screen was lovely).
The games room was used quite a bit but the weather was so good we mostly played outside

What could be Improved:
There was no way to lock the back/balcony door, so although there is an effective keypad on the main door, you could just walk in anyway!
A new net, balls and bats for the ping pong table would be a bonus.

I LOVED this place!! We rented two cabins for a girls weekend and we were all extremely happy with what we got! The deck overlooking the back was where we spent most of our time (it fit 8 of us with lots of room).The beds are on the small size so just be aware of this, but for a weekend it’s not a big deal!! The lake is amazing!! Sooooo much to do at this place : badminton, campfire (free wood) a pirate ship that kids can play around in the water, hiking, games room, and so much more.I can’t believe there are not more people here. This place is amazing!! The cabin was well stalked and super clean. We will for sure be booking again. Just a gem!

Backing up so we could un load was a bit scary. It’s a tight area but I have a large truck

*my only complaint is the hide awas not fun to sleep on...

Booking was a breeze, and questions were answered promptly, so before we even got to our rentals, the experience was good! The cabins (Nature's A'lure, and The Boondock) were very clean, cozy, warm, had kitchens and bathrooms that had everything we needed, they were well stocked with games, movies, music etc, and had breathtaking views of the lake. There was great places to snowmobile all around the area as well! All 12 of us have come away from put weekend away excited to come back in the spring, summer, and fall. Great experience, highly recommended!
