We stayed in the chalet and had plenty of room for four adults. The kitchen was very well equipped and everything was new. The host was very accommodating and it is a beautiful setting. We had free access to all sporting equipment and our son caught a lovely rainbow trout. All in all a wonderful spot to relax together.

If you're looking for a quiet retreat close to Ganges, this is the place. Nice chalets, good value for money, clean. No complaints at all. It's a little hard to find, and the signage isn't that good, but those are very minor points. One caveat: in the middle of summer, you might want to buy drinking water in town, as... More

Great location on St. Mary Lake, and an easy drive from Ganges. Our chalet was well-maintained and equipped with basic kitchen necessities, as well as a smallish TV, air-tight wood stove, and a barbecue on the deck. There is free wood at the communal wood pile near the office, but be prepared to chop it yourself (personally, I find chopping... More

This is a great place to spend a week in the summer. Wonderful cabins, nice beach, pretty lake. The resort has canoes, kayaks, paddle boards, a ping pong table, bean bag toss, badminton, volley ball to use with no extra fees. Randy is a wonderful guy, very friendly and very helpful. I will go back again next year!

We stayed for 3 nights in the chalet. There was 2 couples and one 3 year old, and plenty of space for us all. The lake was just a stone's throw away. There was a family of 10-12 deer that were in the front yard grazing every night. The atmosphere was great. The chalet itself was also wonderful. We loved... More

Thank you for the kind words, we really appreciate the feed back. I am sorry about the wifi. We pay a fortune for it and it is usually very good. I am wondering if you were on the secure wifi or just the resort wifi. Thank you again and hope to see you again in the future. Randy More

It's a shame that the drinking/bathing water smell so badly of sulphur because otherwise this is a great spot that seems to be well run. Needing to buy drinking water and having your kids refuse to shower because of the overwhelming smell coming from the hot shower is a real drag.

“The newer log cabins are not that close to the beach and in the forest so cooler but still fabulous”

“The newer chalets are good, but they do not face the lake, which is not a big deal as the walk to the lake is short and pleasant.”
