Beautiful and well-provisioned

  • 5 of 5

John was an excellent host. The house is fully furnished. It includes a grill and full kitchen. The property is beautiful and the lake is clean. Silverwood is only 25 minutes to the North. The indoor games (Pool & air hockey) were fun, and the kids (ages 3-10) really enjoyed the air hockey table.

Great Summer Trip

  • 5 of 5

The property is located in a great part of Hayden Lake, we specifically picked this location with the large lawns for the kids to run around. The house was clean, enough room for 10 people and had all the amenities needed for a week at the cabin. We lucked out with fabulous weather all week. The owner was a great host with welcoming us upon arrival, giving us a tour of the place and we only saw him when we needed something. We loved the oversized deck to eat dinners in the evening and sit around the fire pit once the kids were asleep. The owner's houseboat tour was one of the highlights for the week. Kids enjoyed the ride and jumping into the middle of the lake. Couldn't have asked for more, and an ideal spot for families.

A fun week at Shangri-la

  • 4 of 5

Hayden lake is beautiful. The dock was great. The kids enjoyed the pool table when we weren't on the boat. John and Linda take great pride in their property and it shows. House was clean and well stocked. They were very accommodating and kind. Thank you!

Fantastic holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

House is wonderful. Dock is fantastic. John the owner keeps a very close eye on his property and is always hard at work maintaining its beauty. Others have complained about his presence but we did not mind at all. He helped us so many times. It is on a great bay on Hayden Lake near sandbar but that means the road in is a bit long and very winding. There was plenty of room for all of us. Thanks for the wonderful memories John and see you next year!

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner and given a tour of the property. From that point on everything was great. The house is very clean and well maintained. The major appliances looked brand new, if not they are taken very good care of. The upstairs carpet felt brand new. The deck around the property was recently updated, including the stairs to the dock and the dock itself. The covered boat slip was just what we needed to moor our boat for the week. The owner was the perfect host, yes he lives on the property in another bungalow, he was there when we needed him and out of sight when we didn't. I am looking forward to revisiting Hayden Lake Shangra La in the future. The house is in a perfect location only 25 minutes to Silverwood & Boulder Beach and 30 minutes to CDA. Thank you John & Linda for sharing your home with my extended family.
