Rivermyst~ Peace, privacy and luxury.

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,200 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Spacious, private & fully renovated 2 bedroom patio suite.

Discover a little taste of luxury surrounded by nature! Rivermyst is a thoughtful blend of rustic charm and modern convenience - a newly renovated two-bedroom suite measuring over 1200 square feet, occupying the entire lower floor of our log home. It offers exceptional privacy, including its own entrance and a private patio area. Surrounded by pristine wilderness it's easy to forget you're still in a suburban neighborhood and only minutes away from shops and dining. The only things you hear are birdsong and the sound of rushing water from Mashiter Creek in the canyon below.

INSIDE – Tastefully furnished with everything you could possibly need. The large sunken living room features a river rock gas fireplace, full audio/video system, plus a wide selection of DVD movies, audio CDs and board games for your enjoyment. The modern kitchen comes fully equipped for real cooking and seats 6 in the built-in eating area. There is lots of storage throughout the suite, plus your own in suite laundry area with full size washer and dryer. We can also provide secure space for all your outdoor gear/bikes. The spacious private patio with wooden decking, BBQ and gas fire bowl looks directly into the trees and mountains beyond.

CLOSE BY - Located at the top of the Garibaldi Highlands area of Squamish, right in the middle of some of the best hiking and cycling trails on Earth. There is a trailhead 20 feet from our property that connects you to the entire network! And yet it’s all only a 5 minute drive to numerous local shops and restaurants and a 10 minute drive to Downtown.

Squamish itself has plenty of attractions like the Sea to Sky Gondola, the Stawamus Chief and the West Coast Heritage Railway Museum. The local dining scene is expanding monthly and there are also now three microbreweries in town. Feel free to ask us for our recommendations. We like food!

SURROUNDING AREA - There are lots of easy daytrips from Rivermyst. Scenic Bowen Island is a quick ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay. Whistler Blackcomb for world class skiing, shopping and dining is a 35 minute drive north. Vancouver is a 50 minute drive south and is recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

We look forward to welcoming you to Rivermyst soon!

NOTE: Prices shown are in U.S.DOLLARS - we apologize for any inconvenience but this is beyond our control.

About Natasha

Natasha and her husband Duncan are very excited to have made Squamish, and a beautiful log house, their home. Natasha was born in Kenya, moved to BC as a teenager and has since lived, worked and travelled all over the world. Duncan was born in BC, grew up in the UK and returned home to Vancouver more than 20 years ago. With them both working from home more lately, the move from Vancouver to Squamish became a reality. They love to hike with their two rescue dogs, Biscuit and Kirby, and every day brings new discoveries! Both Natasha and Duncan have spent their entire professional lives in customer service and client care, so they are thrilled to share Rivermyst with guests from near and far and are determined to ensure a truly exceptional experience is had by all!

Natasha purchased this apartment in 2017

What makes this apartment unique

Our log home is unique in the area in that is at the very top of a cul-de-sac and is surrounded on three sides by protected, wilderness forest which means your stay will be completely private and peaceful. You'll be just steps away from world class mountain biking and hiking; all this while still being close to town.

30 somethings escape to Rivermyst!

  • 5 of 5

We were 6 professionals in our 30's enjoying a weekend in Squamish! The night we arrived we enjoyed a home cooked meal at Rivermyst! The kitchen and dining area is very user friendly and welcoming! We than retired to the living area to chill in front of the fire...it's so comfortable and warm! At no time did the 6 of us feel like we were tripping over one another...Rivermyst is very spacious and well thought out! We did travel in two cars...one parked in the driveway in the space provided and the other parked on the street with no trouble given the snow banks! Thank you Laura for your warm welcome...we hope to come back!

Super-natural beauty surrounds this beautiful, quiet home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This rental is in the daylight basement of a large, log cabin home that is on a cliff overlooking a river. The space is very large with ample room for a family to truly spread out and not feel crowded. And you never feel like you are in a basement as the space has high ceilings and is very bright and windowed. The kitchen provides everything you would need to create simple meals and the hosts have kindly provided staples to make everyone's stay comfortable, including coffee and cocoa! Aside for families getaways, I think this space would make a lovely place for a Girls' Weekend too. Everything is simply beautiful inside.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely spot!

Rivermyst is a gorgeous cabin that's decorated very cute and chic. The layout had a great flow and ease to it & we loved the cozy atmosphere with it's fireplace and the calming sound of the rushing river below.

Duncan the owner was very helpful supplying us with extra things we needed on request, once we checked in. The whole cabin was very well equipped, including wireless internet access, kitchen supplies and extra bedding. We were 6, 2 couples and 2 singles. My husband and I stayed in the queen bed room and the other couple were fine in the other room with 2 smaller twin beds. Luckily my single friends didn't mind sleeping on the floor with the mattresses provided in the stotrage closet.

We slept extremely well & the beds were very comfy.

The only challenge was the fact that it snowed and we had 3 cars and couldn't park on the street & the driveway was a bit of a tetrus game with the owners 2 cars. We all worked it out and nobody was inconvenienced. Thanks for accommodating us Duncan & Natasha!

My birthday weekend was truly unforgettable ❤

Feels like a cottage in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a beautiful stay here. Although there were houses around us, the suite overlooked a forested ravine and felt like a cottage in the woods. The only sounds came from nature and every window overlooked old growth forest. The kitchen was perfectly appointed so it was easy to cook for ourselves and the bathroom floor was heated. We were there in December and Natasha and Duncan had even taken the time to put up a tree!

Owner's Response: Thanks Janet. Really glad you enjoyed your stay and thanks for leaving everything so nicely for us. And you got in and out before the snow! We hope you have reason to come back for another visit sometime soon. All the best, Duncan and Natasha.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, roomy, updated everything. Quiet and located close to activities & stores in Squamish, with easy commute to Whistler. Nice large kitchen table for playing games. Large gathering room with fireplace. Comfortable beds. Owners surprised us with muffins, milk, and orange juice for our first morning too! Would definitely stay again.
