The space
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. 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 all our beds in a quiet environment contribute to a restful night's sleep.

Quiet, warm, friendly. Enjoy the company and conversation of others from anywhere in the world. We live in the country on a homestead where we grow much of our own food and raise heritage livestock. Russell is an entrepreneur and store designer and Dawn is a caregiver and host of their own BnB.
