A perfect retreat for your next vacation, any time of the year! In the summer, enjoy all sorts of in-the-sun fun on the water, or hiking the gorge, fishing on the lake, or relaxing barbecues.

Be sure to check out seasonal events on Waneta Lake and surrounding areas to maximize your vacation!
A fully furnished house, a fully equipped kitchen with basic pantry necessities, and we’ll be glad to provide you with one of our favorite experiences – a great cup of coffee while sitting on the back porch, breathing the refreshing morning air and watching the wildlife wake up. WiFi, alarm system, cable TV / smart TV's, wireless speaker system, gaming consoles, board games, books, blankets, and onsite firewood availability leave you feeling just as comfortable as your own home!
