Bordering on Sunshine Bay Park on Kootenay Lake, our 150 acre homestead and guesthouse was first settled at the end of the 19th century. We have enjoyed revitalizing the once thriving farm, restoring the original buildings & adding new structures. You'll enjoy our classic 1400sq/ft timber frame guesthouse - light and airy, with views of the mountains and fields that surround us. Natural linens on our king and queen beds, as well as easy access to many local amenities will enhance your stay.
