Our rustic Bruton Cottage is an economical option for young families that need to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and life in the city. There are public swimming areas nearby, walks and hikes for every level, and a quiet peaceful atmosphere that won't be found just anywhere!
The cottage has a wood stove, a rainwater system with an outdoor shower and an environmentally friendly indoor toilet. There is one queen bed and two twin beds all in one large 'great room'. A playpen and high chair are available for infants and toddlers. The room is functionally divided into sleeping, cooking, eating and living areas. There is also a small deck to sit and enjoy the evening. To keep things set in an older time and age, we have a TV that plays videos and a record player with a variety of records in many genres. You will feel you are 'back in the day' and will relax while you drink up the peacefulness and let your cares drift away.
There is a beautiful view of Shuswap lake from the front yard, a little pitch 'n putt 'for fun' golf course on the property and raspberries and blackberries to pick and eat in season. Your kids can run and play without you worrying that they will 'get into things'. We have a wagon, a playhouse, and a canoe you can borrow. If your family likes lawn games, we have bocce ball and croquet or you can try your hand at our own 'golf course'. One hole even features an old satellite dish! We have a BBQ for your use and a fire pit to roast wieners. If you desire, we can make arrangements to provide a simple breakfast and/or supper at reasonable cost. (a day's notice is required) However, if you want to do your own cooking, the rustic guesthouse has enough appliances to put together a simple meal. (Toaster oven, toaster, fridge, microwave, rice cooker, electric kettle, electric fry pan, coffee maker and hot plate.)
If you like the adventurous life, the Shuswap area has many things to do, including river rafting and trail riding. There is a heritage museum in Salmon Arm which features a dinner theater every summer. And of course there is always some fruit in season all summer long!
Please NOTE: [We have other options available for a single person needing a smaller space or a family that wants more room and comforts. Please enquire as to other available space we may have.]+ More
