Every season looks fabulous from this dog-friendly rental on Idabel Lake! Take a glass of wine out to the deck and admire the truly marvelous lake views, with the mountains lining the horizon. There's no better way to experience the natural beauty of British Columbia.

Head down the stairs from your deck, and you've arrived at the lakeside. Guests at this rental have free access to the resort's boats on a first come, first serve basis. Help yourself to the oars, life-jackets, and a rowboat or canoe. The property has a shared game room and picnic areas, great gathering places for the family. If you're here to ski, it's only 30 miles to the Big White ski slopes.

Step into the living room, which is framed by the large window's sweeping lake views. The full kitchen has all the essentials for preparing delicious meals during your vacation, or you can fire up the grill for an al fresco dinner. On warm nights, hang your hammock and read a book as the day slowly fades, or take your dog for a long walk along the lake (a small nightly pet fee applies). If you get chilly, head inside and warm up by the fireplace, or head upstairs for a movie night.

Very clean and comfortable cabin with very nice views .

You can tell the owners love their place. Beautiful dishes. Loved the Canadian decor and Mother Nature topped it off with a snowfall.

The cabin was cozy and comfortable with great views of the deck. It had all the necessities and more.
Located in a quader's paradise - we parked our quad in front of our cabin and had miles of trails accessible from our doorstep.

This place was so cute and quaint and clean! Just what we needed for a weekend getaway! Beds were super comfortable. Couches could use to be updated but all in all we loved every second!

We’ve been coming to Idabel for over 20 years and have stayed in most of the cabins. This Cabin was beautiful and well appointed. It contained everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The only downside was the pull out bed - it needs to be replaced and the deck is closed off so not direct water access.
Manager response:
Thank you so much for your feedback! We will be sure to bring your comments about the pullout bed to the attention of our local staff and the homeowner. We appreciate the feedback and helping us improve for all our future guests! We hope to see you again soon!

Stayed for a quick stopover while cycling the KVR trail and wished we had had more time here. The cabin is so comfortable with a great layout for a small space. Enjoyed having dinner on the deck and a swim in the lake. Hope to return sometime.

What a great place! So well laid out for a small cabin. Well stocked kitchen, nice small bathroom, great views of lake from upstairs sitting room. Beds in good shape for a rental. Slight inconvenience of having the beds upstairs and bathroom downstairs. So many dvds and tapes for the tv/players. The caretaker was there when we arrived to make sure we found everything when we settled in. He kept the stairs snow free and kept ice melt down. 10 minutes drive to the wonderful McCulloch nordic skiing area. We'll be back.

Lovely scenery, nice clean water (kids love the water house and activities) and area.. some pleasant easy hiking trails nearby, and pleasant fishing on the lake...
Not too far out about 45 minutes to Kelowna...
Nice cabin with all the facilities for a comfortable stay...and a games room in case of raid or if the sun is too hot at midday!

Rental is cute and has everything you need.We appreciated the well stocked kitchen and deluxe linens.

It would be nice to get in earlier if you arrive earlier.We kept trying the code and finally found some locals who informed us we could get locked out if we enter too many times.We waited the 15 min and were able to open the door.

This is pet friendly and you will notice that if you put your feet up on the ottoman you will leave behind pet hair that get picked up on your feet.Warning to those with allergies.

We had a great stay at the cabin! What a beautiful space right on Idabel lake! We will be back

Loved this little cottage - came up for one night and had so much fun :)
Jaime E. Jul 2018
Stayed at the cabin while getting married in the area. Very cute cabin but the bed was only a double so would have been nicer to be a queen bed but wasnt the end of the world. The stove was old and took longer to cook our meals than a newer stove. The view was amazing and the deck was a perfect place to hang out. It was a great week away and we enjoyed our time there.

Easy to organize, very efficient communications, great accommodations and a magical setting with friends

This was the second winter in a row that my friends and I have stayed with you guys for a weekend and we absolutely love our experience every time. We are always counting down the weeks until it’s cabin time! Everything is always clean and cozy and we love it. We stayed in cabin #1 and #5. Both advertised as sleeps six people which is great. The only complaint I got from a few of my friends was that maybe you should not asvrrtise cabin #1 as a sleeps 6 people, as the pull-out bed has completely collapsed and has no bedsheets (or at least, they were no where to be found) so two of our friends didn’t have much of a sleep at all. Maybe worth checking out! Thanks for everything guys, well be back :)

Great experience
Dania H. Jan 2018
We cannot discribe how much we loved this place.It was just my fiancé and I.There was nothing like skating on a private lake n then going to the game room at anytime to whoop some butt! Was so quiet and so beautiful. All cabins were on the frozen lake where you would sometimes see an ice fisher having a fire on the lake. The cabins were amazing! Very clean SUPER cute and all around perfect.There was no cell reception which is PERFECT so we had no choice but to drink our wine and play games which we never do but now we actually might start.Was very romantic!!!Can not wait to go again.

The cabin was quite nice, comfortable, even wine glasses were available, beautifully located just above the lake, nice deck and comfortable beds.
The only negative mention would be lake access, one cannot access the lake directly from the cabin, what used to be a stairway was blocked off.
Corey W. Dec 2016
The staff were informative and so nice upon arrival. Our cabins were already heated and we were pre-warned about any frozen pipes/washroom issues we may have during our stay. The fire was ready to go with fire logs right beside it and was already started for us on our first night there.

The proactive nature of Rentchalets made our stay extremely enjoyable and worry-free which is exactly what we were looking for on vacation. Thanks so much! Our group of 40+ are spreading rave reviews throughout BC :)
