Interaction with guests
We live on the same rural property but you cannot see our house from the Cottage. You have full privacy and plenty of your own 'space' yet we are just a short distance away if you need us.

I had a great stay of 3 nights when I had business in the small, beautiful town of New Denver. It was my first real trip to the Kootenays, and I will return next summer with my wife. "Cottage life", was warm and wonderful, clean and cozy. The kitchen was well equipped for those few staples that I forgot to...

Management response:

Lorna´s cottage is not a convenient stop on the way to somewhere else.

I´m an expat Canadian living in the tropics and had forgotten the exquisite sensation...

Management response:

How wonderful to have guests from far-away Mexico here in the wilds of BC. Thank you for our new unofficial name "little house on the mountain." It captures the Cottage in Hills experience perfectly: a charming little house on a mountainside with a view of the Valhalla Range. And while Lee didn't go for a swim in nearby Slocan Lake...

Management response:

These guests visited during what we consider the best time of year: the fall. October brings sunny days, the leaves show a colourful display, and bracing, nippy nights when the heat from the cozy wood stove feels wonderful. Glad you enjoyed your stay at The Cottage in Hills.
