Unplug. Unwind. Escape to the Pristine Wilderness of Slocan Lake.
About Laura Brossmann
We spend two weeks every August at our cottage on Slocan Lake and it's my favorite place on earth. I love nothing more than spending time on that deck, taking in the spectacular views and enjoying the quiet.
Laura Brossmann purchased this Cottage in 2009

We had a wonderful time here. The water is amazingly clean and clear. There are so many places to explore and endless outdoor activities. The cabin has everything you need and more.
An excellent spot for a relaxing getaway. Gorgeous views, quiet area, short driving distance to trails and small communities. Well equipped home.
What a lovely spot! The cabin was clean and comfortable. It was just as described in the listing. The host, Laura, was very helpful! We would definitely stay here again! It is a bit of a mission down to the dock but we were warned about that and would bring lunch down and play all day.
Peace and tranquility
Had the most amazing stay at your fantastic property, thank you so much for letting us visit - its stunningly beautiful and I'd return in a heartbeat given the chance, we all loved it.
Best experience for me/us was sitting out on the veranda in the evening, with the fire table lit, overlooking the lake - simply breathtaking, really was sad to leave but thank you for the prize memories.
West Kootenay Bliss
As a resident of a neighboring valley I thought I had seen all this chunk of BC had to offer but I hadn't. I was blown away by the visuals staying at this lovely cabin....and the lake was perfection. The home itself is beautiful, well fitted out, super comfy for families to spread out and of importance to me...the beds were really good. Our dogs felt quite at home as well, they enjoyed walks up the road and meeting the neighbors pooch. They thought the path down to the lake was fabulous. We brought out 24ft boat and while there isn't slips to moor in, there was a spot on the inside of the dock to tie up safely. We also had the option of mooring on a bouy if the wind picked up. It should be noted that the dock in the pictures isn't the current dock.
We did have a few hiccups. Because of the steep hill down to the water, and that we had all our boating paraphenalia to haul around I asked if we could bring my brother dirt bike (he is fully licensed/insured and has a spark suppressor on his muffler) so we could use him as a mule to carry the heavier items up and down. When I booked in the fall that seems OK with Sarah however several days into our stay they told us we couldn't use it due to insurance liability reasons. I totally understand that but would have been nice to know before hauling the bike over.
The second issue was mice. The owners were actively working on eliminating this issue which we appreciated but it was a fairly significant problem. We had to make modification to our sleeping habits and food storage techniques. I'm hoping they win that battle!
Overall, we loved it. We would stay there again. Sarah was lovely to work with. Chris, the caretaker, is a gem. The area itself is magical.
Fantastic stay at Slocan Lake over New Years
Our group of friends rented both #566207 and #575472 over New Years 2017 and we had a fantastic time. The places are beautiful and the views are even more so! The places were very clean, cozy, and well outfitted, and the beds were very comfortable as well. The driveway was a bit icy in some spots but manageable. Sarah was great to work with and we'd definitely stay here again!
