Frequently Asked Questions

How do I reserve a cabin?

You may wish to have a look at our reservations page. The easiest and fastest way to reserve is to use our secure online reservations system.

The system, of course, is available 24/7. Alternatively, you can just give us a telephone call – a little old-fashioned but kind of nice – visit our Contact Page.

What about phone service?

There are no public phones on the property and the nearest pay phone is at 3 Valley Gap (8 km away).  There is cell coverage but not with all carriers. There is service with the following mobile networks: “Telus”, “Bell” and “Koodo”.  The “Rogers” network does not offer service here. If you’re with some other carrier, you may wish to check their coverage map.

Telus, Bell, Koodoo and Rogers all claim to offer service within the nearby towns of Revelstoke and Sicamous.

All cabin bookings require a 50% deposit at the time of booking. Your credit card will be charged immediately for this amount. Payment in full is due 30 days prior to check-in.
