Scotch Creek Cabin - pet friendly and affordable

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 29, 2016
Cabin, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

"Rancho Relaxo" (yes, there is a story behind the name) is a comfortable, clean and cozy cabin, located in the popular summer resort community of Scotch Creek, on the sunny north side of Shuswap Lake. The cabin has tons of character and will provide you with a completly relaxing and fun vacation. It is absolutely perfect for a small family or a romantic get away.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, Shawdirect satellite TV with piles of channels, DVD, VCR, and CD player. The two queen sized beds are very comfortable and are supplied with linens, comforters and pillows. There is a shower in the bathroom. The front deck is completly covered for your outdoor entertaining and BBQ'ing (barbeque and propane supplied).

The cabin is situated on a beautiful, grassy, treed and privately owned double lot, on a quiet street away from the highway, with plenty of room for parking (even your boat), picnicing, volleyball, badminton and bocce. There is a set of bocce balls for you to use and a sunken, private fire pit with firewood provided (conservative firewod use only and providing there are fires permitted). We will apply an extra fee for overusing firewood.

The lake is a very short walk (a few minutes), where you will find the Provincial Park, a boat launch, a park with a playground, picnic tables and a swimming beach. You do not have to cross the highway to reach the lake. Everything you need for a fun and comfortable holiday is waiting for you at Rancho Relaxo. If there is anything you feel you require, just let us know and we will do our best to make you happy. We are a short drive away.

Check in is 3 pm Saturday and check out is 10:30 am Saturdays.

Please email us for detailed directions to the cabin.

Bath towels, kitchen and bed linens are supplied. Bring your own beach towels. Please ensure you leave the cabin as you find it, clean and tidy for the next guests. If you choose not to leave it clean and tidy, you can choose to pay an optional cleaning fee of 150$. The barbeque, if not left clean is 25$.

Bookings are Saturday to Saturday. We require a 350$ deposit when you reserve. This is completly refundable upon departure after we check out the cabin.

There is an additional 40$ pet fee as well if you choose to bring your pet with you. We ask that you bring a kennel if you are going to leave your pet in the cabin alone.

There is plenty of room to pitch a tent or bring an RV, if you would like to have other guests join you. The fee for an RV is 25$ per night. Tents are 15$ per night.

Rates are based on occupancy of 4 people in the cabin. Extra guests are 25$ per night.

Rancho Relaxo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I showed up at "Rancho Relaxo" late in the evening after a very long drive to Scotch Creek from Northern Alberta. I was trying to get a wireless signal for my computer to get online to retrieve my contact information, but it was fruitless. As me and my husband were becoming more frustrated and looking for SOMEONE in the area that knew our contact, she called to see if we had arrived safely!!! What a relief! We then got the necessary directions for the cabin and met the contacts husband there who then gave us a tour of the cabin and some important information for staying cozy while there.

All in all, our stay at "Rancho Relaxo" was a very positive one and VERY relaxing!!! The cabin is set up very nicely with EVERYTHING that one will need to perform cooking/cleaning duties.

I just want to give a shout out to Brenda and Dave for all their input to make our stay one of the best we have ever experienced!!

Thanks again. We will definitely try to come again next year!!

Scotch Creek Rancho Relaxo

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 just had an excellent time at Rancho Relaxo! It was a perfect spot for my husband, 4 year old daughter and I, and fully equipped with everything you think you need! Scotch Creek is a great small community that has a farmer's market every Wednesday and a few km down the road in Celista they have another farmer's market every Saturday and a winery. We missed out on the Friday nights live but they have a small market and music right in the town every Friday night in July and August. Hope to be back again!

Seeking R&R in Scotch Creek

  • 3 of 5

Scotch Creek Cabin is in a great location, only a few minutes from the Provincial Park. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood and has plenty of grass and space to relax. Though the bedroom is separated by only a curtain and the bathroom involves walking outside (though its indoor plumbing!) the cabin offered all the conveniences of home, including a large selection of VHS movies! The property was very clean, well-maintained with a rustic lived in feel.

A welcome note was awaiting our arrival and Dave (one of the owners) was available for any questions we had, he even stopped by and cut down some branches for us to cook our marshmellows over the open fire pit. I would recommend this property to couples or a large group of friends or a family as it offers everything you require for a relaxing getaway.

If you are looking to relax, BBQ and enjoy the outdoors Scotch Creek is a great choice for some R&R, though recommend renting a boat and partaking in some water sports.

Owner's Response: We are happy that our guests had a wonderful vacation. However, we would like to add that the property is not great for large groups, as it really does only sleep four people and is more suitable for a couple with 1 or 2 children, a single couple or 2 adults needing seperate beds. The bedroom actually has a wall between it and the living area and the curtain is there for privacy. The cabin is essentially one big room, with a wall seperating it. The bathroom is seperate on the covered deck and is perfect when there are tenters and visiting guests. We have never had issues with this before and all of our guests are thrilled with the value for the property.
