Lakemore Retreat is a weekly rental resort, offering summer check-in and check-out on Sundays. In our shoulder season May and September) we consider 5 night stays, and weekend options (3-4 night minimum stays) are available from October through April or within 60 days of any vacancies we may have in our prime season. All three houses are directly next to each other on the shores of Arbutus Lake, a nearly 400 acre inland lake that hosts swimmers from May through October. Arbutus Lake is an all sports lake big enough for skiing and tubing, but small enough to enjoy the calm waters for stand up paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing. Looking at the retreat from the lake, The Cabin is on the left, The Cottage is in the middle and The Lodge is on the right. The Cabin was an existing home that received a complete renovation in 2016 including: upgraded insulation, new HVAC, flooring, a completely re-designed kitchen and 3 new bathrooms. All beds, furniture, and linens were purchased new. The Cottage and Lodge were built new in 2015. They are mirror images of each other and offer the same amenities, just different interior design. Each house has its own section beach, each with exclusive access to two SUP boards, two kayaks and folding beach chairs. The Lodge and Cottage share a dock (which divides the beach into its respective sides) and The Cabin has its own dock. There are two hot tubs, allowing Lodge and Cottage guests exclusive access. The Cabin's access to the hot tub is dependent on the rental status of The Cottage and The Lodge.
Lakemore Retreat is a high quality luxury resort, and we expect our guests to respect the property so we can continue to offer this experience to future guests. Because of our residential location, and out of appreciation for our neighbors, we do not allow late night noise (after 10 pm) and we are a non-smoking and pet free property. Smoking, even outside, can only be done across the street from the homes, not near common areas other guests enjoy. Owners live next door, and are present for check-in and responsive to any needs as they arise throughout your stay.
Lakemore Retreat is open year round and is the perfect home base for those guests interested in: wine tours, color tours, Iceman Cometh Bike Race , VASA Nordic Ski races, downhill skiing, holiday stays and snowmobiling. *At least 1 AWD or 4WD vehicle is required for winter stays.
