House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 10 Sleeps
The Hillside Hideaway features a steep driveway climbing up to a
private, commanding setting for the spacious 3000 square foot
home, perched on the hillside within a stone's throw of Shuswap Lake.
From there you are greeted with a stunning, panoramic, south facing
view of Mount Ida and the northern reaches of the Okanagan Valley.
An Osprey nests within 100' of the house, and local fisherman attest
to the ample fish in the area. Relax and watch the Osprey catch their
fill, then enjoy a steep stroll down the pathway and stairs to the
spacious beach deck or large sandy beach area. Each has it's own
built in firepit with firewood,and stone steps leading to its own wharf...
Both wharfs 24' x 8' and 30' x 8' 6', and the 2 bouy's allow ample
parking for boats...also included in the rent is a 12' aluminum
(fishing) boat with oars.

About the Owner
Not as expected, very disappointed.
Stayed here for 2 nights with adult family members. I was concerned when I found out the owner had new, monthly tenants in the home who would supposedly clean the place and vacate for the weekend prior to our arrival. The owner should have either waited until after our weekend rental or at least advised of this arrangement giving me the opportunity to book other accommodation.
There were ~30 cigarette buts on a plate on the deck, another plate used for dog food (can’t help but wonder what the other dishes in the kitchen have been used for and with no dishwasher to ensure they’re properly sanitized). Poor quality bed linens, some beds not made, others made, but very poorly, one with black marks on the bottom sheet. The kitchen was poorly equipped (could only find one very small cutting board and one dish cloth). The upstairs sofa had numerous stains. There wasn’t a towel in the place as the owner had accidentally locked them in a storage locker and we had to launder the new towels and sheets that a former caretaker brought over.
The house appears to be right on the lake, but it’s not, it’s across the road from the lake. Not a big deal for us, but it is somewhat misleading. The view is great, but I would not stay here again.
Activity and Interests
Swimming in crystal clear water, waterskiing along a relatively
quiet beachfront, sunbathing on, or fishing off of the beach deck or
wharfs or sundecks. Admiring the panoramic view of Canoe Beach,
Mount Ida and the North end of the Okanagan Valley... A short jog,
walk or drive and check out the pristine coastal-like cedar grove
along the path to Margaret Falls- a must see with a camera + swim
suit for the brave to cool off in the cave behind the falls... A
short drive up a logging road to the stunning view of Shuswap lake
and area from the microwave tower atop of Bastion Mountain.
