  • Description


    I am 33 years old, and have owned and operated a Resort for 7 years now. We are a small operation consisting of myself, my girlfriend (Kira) and our cleaning/office girl named Kat. I strive to ensure guests at the resort have a memorable experience and continually upgrade the property to the best of my ability. We have 9 cabins and roughly 30 Campsites, boat rentals, and a small store that sells Ice cream, snacks, fishing tackle and other odds n ends. I have spent most my life traveling and working at resorts around BC and have never come across one as naturally beautiful as this. We are a no-pet facility so the wildlife is extremely tame. You will regularly see loons, eagles, squirells, chipmunks, deer and an assortment of birds.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There will be plenty of downtime which can be spent enjoying the lake, laying on the beach, swimming, hiking, fishing etc. Lumby has many lakes to explore all within a 15-30 minute drive of the resort. The town of Vernon is 45 minutes away and has all the amenities and entertainment one would need. We are very welcoming here at the resort and plan to include our work away volunteers as much as they would like, Or if they are more interested in doing their own thing, that is fine too!
