We had a long drive to get here from Wardner, and it was worth it. The view of city lights from the porch is fantastic. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. I will sing your praise to whoever will listen. This has been a wonderful trip helping Larry with his horse. Blessing on you Lynn and Joe.

Scott and Julia

We spent our first nights as man and wife at your lovely cabin. Your place holds a spectacular view and a smell that reminds us of home on the ranch. We miss this feeling now that we are in the city. Thanks for the beautiful escape and the friendly hospitality. We hope to return soon.

Brigitte and Dominic

What a sunny and peaceful morning! Our quiet neighbours (the horses) enjoy the sun and we are just awaking before the beautiful view. Thank you very much for your welcome and we will remember it during a long time after we are back in France.

A wonderful day (again). How lovely here, good food, great view and the nicest family. We thank you for your hospitality, these two days and two nights have been a perfect respite from our city life. We feel like we have made friends, and will look forward to staying here again soon.

Ronald and Patricia

A Thursday morning and the sun is shining upon my face. I think I’m the most happiest woman in the world now. Because we are on our HONEYMOON at this location at Southwind, staying and sleeping in such a romantic little house is the best way to celebrate life. And with such nice and warm people like you, Lynn and Joe. Count your blessings one by one, well I’m certainly blessed to be here and so is Ron. It’s like a dream: the view, the horses, the vacation, holiday, shuswap, cabin rental, the sounds of the birds, the hospitality. Thank you very much, we definitely are coming back. With love,

Ronald and Patricia - Holland

John and Linda

Lynn and Joe, thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home and little piece of Paradise. We enjoyed it “All”, the scenery, animals and most of all the people, and of course your “outstanding” hospitality and food!

The clinic was absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. Josh is a real blessing for the horse world and for those who choose to try to be in harmony with their horses. What an honor to have been here to share in his knowledge! Thanks.

John and Linda - Oliver, BC

Linda and Sam

I am so glad we came. Riding out on the beautiful scenic trails with spectacular view points. Going down to the lake for a swim, floating around, watching two eagles high on the cliffs above. Sundowners time!! Campfire with a little rain. Cozy beds, wonderful breakfasts and the tops in hospitality. You haven’t seen the last of us.

Must have had a delightful sleep cause I don’t remember a thing, woke up refreshed. The view is to die for. All the critters show the love and attention from two warm hearted people one wants to know better. I hope whatever dreams you have become realities. You deserve that much. Luv
