Our visit turned into a perfect escape at the Similkameen Chalet, where we unplugged and soaked in the breathtaking mountain views. The property offers a convenient parking area (we had 3 vehicles), a spacious private backyard, and an outdoor firepit by the Similkameen River, enhancing the natural beauty. The Chalet accommodated our larger group of 8 adults, 1 baby, and 2 small dogs and provided enough separate hangout areas, both indoors and outdoors. It's impeccably clean, well-maintained, and thoughtfully furnished, including a well-equipped kitchen (we made Christmas dinner in that kitchen twice). The wood-burning fireplace adds a very cozy touch, making the entire house inviting. We enjoyed restful nights on quality beds & bedding in the serene quietness. Our stay over Christmas was extra special with hosts Connie & Rob adding festive decorations and a charming Christmas tree. Their friendliness and helpfulness made our stay memorable. We highly recommend the Similkameen Chalet for a wonderful getaway.

Lots to do in Manning Park & the Surrounding Area

The quiet, Eastgate community is located about 10 minutes from Manning Park Resort. Made up of mostly recreational vacation homes, there is a gas station with a small convenience store as well as a campground nearby. The roads in the neighborhood are paved and level, a beautiful place for a casual bike ride, with 2 public access points to the river. The nearby Forestry Service Roads offer endless options for hiking and spectacular views.

Welcome! We hope you plan to stay!

We love building memories with our kids, grandkids and extended family

and our cabin has been the perfect space to spend time with those we love.

We have found the location on the river, next to the mountains

is relaxing and life-giving.

It is our hope that our guests will experience our vacation home

as a place to rest and unwind, where relationships are nurtured,

and peace and hope are restored.

Enjoy your Stay By The River!
