Custom Log Cottage; near River & Lake Activities, Hiking, Fishing and Golf
The cottage is fully self contained and is in close proximity to Mabel Lake and is adjacent to the Shuswap river (the river is across the road). There is a gravel driveway with lots of parking; the lot is half an acre, and has a trampoline and fire pit.
There are numerous summer activities in the immediate area; Mabel Lake has swimming, boating, fishing, paddling, canoeing, beaches. The Chinook Salmon fishing season normally opens late July and closes mid September. Licenses are required and are available on-line. Trout fishing is open year round in the lake and is best early on in the season when the water is a little cooler. Downriggers are often used throughout the season to get the lure deep enough to catch the really big ones. Some of the local favorite lures are flat fish, mac squid or wedding rings for Kokanee and Trout. All of the above lures are available at the Mabel Lake store.
The area is great for biking. The Shuswap River and area has white water activities, or gentle floats down the river. For hikers, the short, 1 km "Changing Rainforest" self-guided interpretive trail winds through the shaded forest carpeted in moss that is found between the campsites and the main road. It is a gentle hike taking visitors through the maturing second growth rainforest of western red cedar, hemlock and some Douglas fir. The hike takes 30 minutes.
