Plan your Okanagan stay at the "Home Place" cabin, situated in a quiet corner of ghost town - Glen Robinson B.C.  This rustic, cozy space is self contained with everything you need to enjoy cabin life and relax in a wild place free of cell service and WiFi.  All you need to bring is your "A Game" for adventure, food, bevies and your personal bedding. (Bedding can be provided upon request).

Perfect for couples the cabin will sleep up to six people and for larger groups there are adjoining tenting and RV sites that are available to guests who are booking the Home Place (for an additional fee).

A two minute drive from Glen Lake and surrounded by endless miles of Crown Land, the Home Place is the perfect gateway to adventure with no crowds.  Whether your passion is hiking sub-alpine peaks, riding your ATV, casting a fly for wild Rainbows, snapping a Moose pic, mountain biking un-touched trails or paddling across lonesome lakes; the Home Place is a perfect base for pursuing your outdoor passion.

And lets not forget winter!  A lonely expanse of valley, mountains and snow means you can break trail all day long.  Whether its snow shoes, skis or snow machine, follow the Lynx tracks, hit the Alpine or watch the stars and listen for the call of Timber Wolves round the winter campfire.

Only a thirty minute drive west of Peachland, Glen Robinson may feel remote - yet its still close to the great shopping, restaurants and nightlife of the Okanagan Valley!
