  1. Kelowna HydroFly

     (5 / 5)

    We took our family out for the afternoon and had the best time ever doing the HydroFly. Amazing! Everyone can do this and is safe. 25 minutes each person and the Team helped us all get up with really good coaching. Thank you Kelowna HydroFly. Call Mike to book some fun.

  2. Good food!

     (5 / 5)

    The location of an old railway station, the ideal stopover doing the Kettle Railway bike trail between Kelowna and Penticton. Quaint setting and good food, with some interesting displays and memorabilia!

  3. A trip back in time

     (3 / 5)

    Our family of six (4 adults and 2 small children) drove 9 hours to Chute Lake Lodge. It was the closest accommodation to the KVR trail that we could find and not have to use our vehicle while exploring the trails on bikes. We booked in for 3 nights and we had read the reviews about the rustic place on top of a mountain. We were informed by the owner that there was a boil order in place and that bottled water would be provided. After a long drive the one hour climb up switch backs to the lodge was kind of an oh my goodness what have we gotten ourselves into. The scenery wiped that out of our minds as corner by corner and higher we climbed where breathtaking. The lodge and cabins to say the least are 100 year old rustic and it shows on every log. However the love that has been poured into this authentic hunting lodge by the couple who have owned it for 40 plus years, wraps its arms around you as you breathe the fresh mountain air. This turned into an adventure like no other. Before we arrived not only did the pipe break to the ru ing water but also to the flush, which luckily was repaired before our arrival and added to that the power went out on the second day but we ran an extension from the main lodge to keep the fridge going, candles were provided and the old wood stove kept us warm. There were marmots around the cottage and a squirrel that provide some window entertainment, several rabbits and some chipmunks enjoying the apple peels from apples used to make the most delicious apple pie ever, about two inches thick and yummy! The lodge cat, Mango and adorable Manx wandered among the wild life not touching a hair on any of them. Many would have run to the lodge and complained about the lack of ru ing water, the uncomfortable beds, the squirrels visit to the goodies and the power bouncing off and on, but we made lemonade from the lemons and as a family we sat around the wood stove and got to know each other over candlelight, laughed about the ‘rustic’ things and perhaps not so clean environment. We got to know the owner a wee bit and she is precious and a survivor, her husband unable to be there anymore and her friends who work with her suffered a family loss while we were there, but they returned and looked after our needs the next day…..our inconveniences were nothing towards theirs. We experienced snow one morning but it cleared before going biking and the road from the lodge to the first train trestle is no comfort ride, you definitely need four wheel drive and lots of patience but the 18 trestles you experience leave you in awe of nature and mankind. Who ever buys this lodge I hope they keep the ambiance of the past while making it comfortable for those who don’t know the term ‘roughing it’ . Not a place for people who expect luxury but a wonderful place to experience life.

  4. Total rustic charm

     (5 / 5)

    A couple of years ago we experienced the magic of driving up a seemingly never-ending road to reach the resort. nIf you are looking for five star luxury, this isn’t the place for you. But if you like very rustic log cabins, antique farm machinery, woodland creatures darting about in the forest and a peaceful lake, then you’ll fit right in.nThe hosts were tremendous and the apple pie was indeed, a lovely treat.

  5. All about the pie

     (5 / 5)

    This was mid way down the KVR trail from Myra Canyon to Naramata. A welcome break and some really good apple pie. The place is a little run-down for sure. Kudos to the elderly owners for keeping it open.

  6. Its All About the Apple Pie!

     (5 / 5)

    We drove along a back road after exploring the Naramata area, heading towards Kelowna. We were told the road was suitable for 4 wheel drive with amazing views. o kidding – it was spectacular. nWhat we did not expect was this little rustic lodge about halfway along.nQuaint and loaded with charm, just like the lovely elderly lady who served us : ) Besides the best hot dogs ever (split in half and pan fried in cast iron) we were in awe as we devoured the most amazing apple pie – homemade, loaded with apples and just the right amount of spice. YUM! nWe did not stay over so can not comment on the cabins, but were told that bicyclists riding the trail make this a favourite rest stop.

  7. Friendly but Fix Needed

     (3 / 5)

    We enjoyed the hospitality offered here. We loved the meals. We even had good sleeps! BUT the ‘resort’ needs to invest money in providing hand wash dispensers, showers that you would want to use, and free bottled water as long as the boil water advisory is on. Our group of 10 dropped $900 here. Surely there is some profit there to invest even though the resort has been for sale for several years.

  8. Genuine fishing resort atmosphere!

     (3 / 5)

    We have been bike touring/camping on the KVR trail and stopped at Chute Lake to spend the night in our tent. The beer was cold at the resort and the owners friendly and welcoming. As stated many times Chute Lake Resort is ‘rustic’ but this is a big part of its charm. The hosts were great – food menu is limited but the apple pie and hamburgers were outstanding. Camping area was clean and reasonably level for tenting. Washrooms were also rustic but warm and clean. The hot showers were a treat after many miles on the bikes on the KVR. Thanks for your warm hospitality Doreen!
