Looking for a private tranquil nature filled vacation rental

About Bart and Elaine
Bart and Elaine had been vacationing East Shore Kootenay Lake for years with their three children. One of their dreams has been to live on Kootenay Lake. And this dream came true with their purchase of Two Bears Cabin in 2012. Most weekends when the cabin is not booked, it becomes Bart and Elaine's weekend cabin getaway. They take great pride in ensuring all guests walk into a pristine cabin to begin their Kootenay Lake adventures.
Bart and Elaine purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Bart and Elaine chose Gray Creek
You will not find a more breathtaking cabin view of Kootenay Lake. The cedar trees, eagles, and natural beauty is second to none. Past guests have shared that sitting on the living room sectional couch is like having your own personal IMAX theatre of nature during all seasons.

View and experience is incredible.
Everything you see is what you get and the owners are incredibly easy to talk to. We loved all the fine details and amenities of the cabin and kitchen as well as the fresh garden herbs. You wont need to bring anything. The small shops along the road way in are also cool and interesting. The porch views are exactly what you would want but the privacy isn't quite ideal as the neighbors are quite close on one side. The Sauna on the lake's edge is an incredible experience if you're brave enough to jump in after warming up. The Ferry across is a fun trip too, although we went in the midst of labour negotiation so it wasn't very easy to go to Nelson and return. It's about a 2 hour trek around the lake which makes the visit quite impractical. There's lots to do though and inside the cabin you'll find every pamphlet common to the area. We checked out Ainsworth hot springs which is a definite must and the food is incredible. Pebble beach and the light house are a few other great places to see on the cabin side of the lake. The only food we tried nearby was Rockwood and it was less than to be desired. All in all an easy 5 star rating.
Thank you for choosing 2 Bears Cabin. Your feedback is appreciated!
Wonderful cabin with an amazing view. Owners go to a lot of effort to make the cabin welcoming. Will definitely return.
Thank you for choosing 2 Bears Cabin!
Another wonderful stay at the Two Bears
We have just returned home from another great week at the cabin. The weather was perfect for relaxing on the deck and enjoying the beautiful view. Each time we return to the cabin it is great to see that Bart and Elaine continue to make small improvements to make the experience even more perfect! We always feel very at home when we stay; the kitchen has everything you would ever need and more to cook delicious meals, including access to fresh herbs from the yard. This trip we didn’t venture out much - we just relaxed and enjoyed all that the Two Bears has to offer.
Many thanks for another wonderful stay!
Thank you for your kind review and choosing 2 Bears Cabin!
We just returned from spending 1 glorious week at Two Bears Cabin. It was our first time to the Kootenay region and we were blown away by the beautiful scenery.
The cabin is extremely well-appointed. The kitchen, specifically, has everything you could possibly need, and we appreciated that. The beds are heavenly. Like many others have commented, Bart and Elaine have created a very cozy space.
Two Bears is situated on a property with other cabins, but due to the nature of the positioning of the property your privacy is not impeded by the other cabins.
Some highlights included visits to Crawford Bay Beach, the short, but steep hike to Pebble Beach, the trail at Pilot Bay Provincial Park and most importantly the cinnamon buns from Reds Bakery - definitely a must!
We look forward to the next opportunity we have to visit this very special place.
We are glad you had a great stay and appreciate your kind words. Pebble Beach is such a special place. Thank you for choosing Two Bears Cabin!
Breathtaking view! Amazingly quiet! Wonderful hosts!
Swimming is absolutely fantastic, right in front of the cabin. We also enjoyed fishing from our kayak. We already booked our dream vacation for next year :)
