Great location, kids had a lot of fun, bedding not clean

I would have given a 5 star were it not for the uncleaned bedding. The pillowcases and pillow smell really bad. I contacted the owner the next day and she immediately purchased new bedding. The kids had a lot of fun with the kayak. The house also has everything you need for a lake front vacation.

Relaxed and family-friendly location

We enjoyed staying at this house. The lake was so much fun for swimming and kayaking. The small road between the house and the beach was easily navigable for the children with us.

Arbutus Lake is stunning! The cabin has everything you need.

The cabin itself is decent with all the essentials that one needs for everyday living. We loved the kayaks and the paddle board. Arbutus Lake #1 is the perfect size to explore. Fishing is also good. Enjoyable temperature for swimming.
