Relaxed ladies getaway
The trailer was very comfortable and well maintained, and the property was equipped with everything needed for comfort camping. The property is actually a small ghost town! The cook house is in the old post office, they have their garage in the old gas station, and there is a hut there that the Sinclair brothers built (cool piece of history). The swimming hole across the road was an amazing chill place to spend a hot day. We brought our inflatable rafts and it was lovely floating amongst the lily pads and watching the turtles. I would recommend bringing some floatables for anyone who is squeamish about seaweed.
We had a grizzly bear come out onto the lawn in broad daylight at the property. He was just passing through, but it was a good reminder that this is bear country and to be ready at all times. It was exciting...but also very scary. We were practicing good food safety, but this also reinforces why this is so important. The bear didn’t seem interested in sticking around and I’m sure that it’s because it has never found food there.
We hiked to the forest fire lookout which had stunning views. We also hiked Bugaboo Falls. There is a rainbow at the end and a really cool overhang rock that makes for a perfect rainbow photo op 🙂! There is another hike to Diana Lake a short drive from the property (10 mins). We had planned to do that one, but got rained out.
The Spilli Café is outstanding and BeeLand was pretty cool also. It was nice to be able to walk over from the camp and enjoy some high quality home cooked food as a treat.
The owners dogs were friendly and well behaved and we loved their chickens and chicks too! 🐥 All in all, I’d recommend this place for a family get away or chill friend getaway. Thanks for having us at your lovely property/town!
Come and be!
Patty and Bernie are vibrant and creative individuals who are working to create a space that is inviting and community based. The trailer we stayed in was adorable and we thoroughly enjoyed meeting the dogs, chickens, and goats onsite. Bernie also allowed me to go into their garden and dig up some potatoes!
Make sure you give yourself the time to check out the lower bugaboo falls that neighbour the property.
You will not regret the opportunity to share some time and space with these magnificent humans.
A wes-like dream
I am confident your heart will feel a little lighter after your stay on Patricia and Bernie’s magical property. Nestled in the valley, Spillimacheen has a lot to offer, including beautiful views, swimming holes, and easy access to endless day hikes. But the intention, thoughtfulness, and heart that Patricia and Bernie pour into the space make the experience something that is hard to put into words.
Highlights included: partaking in feeding the chickens and goats, learning the history of the property, sharing stories around the fire, and appreciating the small Wes Anderson inspired details scattered across the property. The trailer was very clean and tidy, and the warm and welcoming atmosphere made it quickly feel like home.
