Let The Summer Season Begin!!

Echo Lake Resort Summer Camping
What a wonderful weekend! Honestly, time seems to be flying here and it’s getting harder to stop and really smell the roses ( or in our case, wood smoke and pine trees).

We had an amazing group of guests come in to celebrate Father’s Day weekend, and needless to say there was some great fishing to be had! Latest update was a 3lb Gerrard caught right off one of our docks!

Also, as a side note, big shout out to our guests who toughed out the rain last weekend. We had some full on camping enthusiasts out here and it was great to hear families still laughing and having fun regardless of the weather!

Speaking of the weather, we think its safe to say that we may be coming out of the rainy season here. We got 26-31 degrees on our calendars for this weekend and next week and honestly we could not be more happy! If you haven’t already booked with us for our campsites, get on it! We are on the final count down until the fire ban is on!! So bring the smore’s, hot dogs, and any other campfire fixings and let’s enjoy a night around the fire! (If you don’t have fire wood, don’t stress it as we offer fairly large bundles for $5.00). If you would like to check on the current fire ban restrictions Press Here.

For our Canada Day Long Weekend guests, please be advised that we are unable to have any fireworks at our resort. Reason being is that we are completely surrounded by trees and with the lake being so narrow, we wouldn’t want to risk having a forest fire. That being said, we are keeping an eye out for the family that shows the greatest Canadian Spirit! This includes banners, stickers, flags, and so on (the sky is truly the limit)!

Lastly, we have had so many great guests contacting us about our remaining cabin availability for this summer! So we have decided to list all that is left for our 2016 summer season. If any of these dates catch your eye, go to our booking page, fill out the Request Form and we will get back to you as soon as possible! Please keep in mind that we operate on a “first come, first serve” basis and cannot block off any available dates without proper and adequate confirmation. If any of the above mentioned dates may interest you, please be in touch as soon as possible so we may secure for you the requested cabins and dates.

Okay, that’s all for this week folks! We still have a couple camp spots available for this weekend, so if you feel the outdoors calling you.. then give us a ring and lets get you set up for another gorgeous camping weekend!

Summer Sunshine and Beautiful Cabin 7!

Summer Sunsets Commence!

Let The Summer Sunsets Commence!

One of our favorite things about the Okanagan are these darn early summers! The heat has been blasting, everyone is slathered in that SPF and sunglasses tans are well on there way!

All this sunshine and happiness has got us thinking…

When you think of summer, what do you think of?
Maybe you think of the beach and how you always forget how hot the sand can get, so once you step off your towel you have to do that weird “hot feet” dance/run to wherever your destination is (fun fact: we all do this;)) or the super refreshing feeling of finally applying that cold aloe vera to your very red and very burnt back?

Well, you know what we think about when we think of summer?
Sitting out on one of our boats on such clear emerald water that depending how the sun hits it can actually make your boat look like its hovering OVER the water instead of floating IN the water. Or when we see those sun-kissed faces with wild smiles from the children attempting to escape the heat by purchasing their favorite blue slushie from our small store. But what is most prominent in our minds when we think of summer is the evening buzz. The evening buzz, is the sound of multiple families either in cabin or campsites, sitting around their fires talking, laughing, smiling and just thoroughly enjoying their family and the outdoors. This is what summer is to us..

If you like the idea of our kind of summer, we now formally invite you and your family to come enjoy gorgeous Echo Lake this hot season! We have plenty of weekday openings for June, July and August for our campsites and our cabin openings will continue to be post weekly for your convenience.

Speaking of cabins, for this weeks blog we decided to do another “Cabin Feature” blog post!!!

For this weeks edition of “Cabin Feature”, we decided to show off quaint and cozy Cabin 7!

Cabin 7 Outside

Now this beautiful cabin is absolutely perfect for any couple looking for a weekday/end getaway! Although it is only 200ft2, this cabin is very spacious for 2 adults. Cabin 7 offers its own private deck, picnic table, BBQ, and fire pit (s’mores anyone?).

Cabin 7 Kitchen

The kitchen itself is one of a kind! All our cabins are supplied with cooking utensils, plates, cutlery, and glasses (including wine glasses ;)). It also is supplied with a bar fridge to keep your food contents cold. What also should be mentioned about this beautiful cabin is the gorgeous views of the lake, right at your dinner table!

Cabin 1 Dining Room

The kitchen is also supplied with a four-burner stove and RV-sized oven to complete all your cooking needs! The cabin itself also offers one double bed, with even more gorgeous views of the lake. And if you think that isn’t cozy enough, Cabin 7 is also one of the few cabins we have with a wood burning stove (Operation Cabin Coziness…Completed).

Cabin 7 Bed

Lastly, as with all our cabins, Cabin 7 offers a beautifully set private dock with stunning views of the mountain side. Not to mention, the dock itself sits right upon the famously known emerald waters. Our personal favorite is that the water here is so unbelievably clear that it is easy to see fish swimming past even at 20 feet away!!

Cabin 7 Private Dock

Again, it would seem unfair to post such beautiful pictures and information about this cabin without showing you its summer availability!! So we have posted below, for you convenience, Cabin 7’s summer availability. Keep in mind our reservation system works on a first-come, first serve basis so if any of these dates interest you then head to our Request Availability page, fill out a booking form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible!

Toodles!

 

Cold Air. Warm Fires. Dark Nights. Bright Stars.. It’s Time to Go Camping

What’s this nonsense of 30 degrees on the weekend!?

Well now, that sure would be a darn shame to not put that good ol tent of yours (yes, we’re talking about the one you still have packed away in the upstairs attic) to some good use! We got a few more open spots for camping this weekend so if your up for an adventure, gather your friends, give us a call and let’s reserve you a beauty spot on Echo Lake! Just remember we do require a 2-night minimum, so you gotta fully commit to enjoying sunshine and nature this weekend!

Echo Lake Resort is also starting a new “Cabin Feature” blog post! This means that before the season end we will feature each and every one of our cabins on the blog. All the pictures were taken this year, so you get a real preview of exactly what you would see when you stay at our cabins! This gives all our future guests the best idea of what to expect and what they really need to bring.

For our first “Cabin Feature” blog entry, we thought it would be smart to start numerically from the top with Cabin 1!

Cabin One

Cozy Little Cabin on Echo Lake

Now this gorgeous little cabin is a little farther from the rest of the cabins, but that’s what makes it SO special! It is located in (one of the many) small bays on Echo Lake. This offers privacy for our guests without sacrificing any stunning views of the lake.

Cabin One

Cabin 1 has a square footage of approximately 200ft2. Although that sounds a bit on the small side, this cabin offers enough space for 2 adults and 2 children to maneuver in comfortably. We bet your thinking, “If there’s only one bed, where does everyone sleep?!”. Don’t worry we got you covered, as that chair on the right is actually a futon. Just pull it out, and shablam! Another double bed appears!  Wait..Did we mention the epic morning view? Why mention it, when we can SHOW you instead…

 

Cabin One

How about THAT morning view! Take a small moment here and just imagine yourself in this spot with a nice hot cup of Joe..

Cabin One

As you can see, Cabin 1 offers one double bed (two if you include the futon), hence max occupancy is two adults and two children. Keep in mind our cabins are considered “Housekeeping Cabins”. This means that guests are required to bring their own bedding (sheets, pillows, sleeping bags, etc.), dish towels, and swim towels. Other then that we supply all the cooking amenities and utensils!

 

Cabin One Deck

The deck of Cabin 1 is spacious and offers great views of the lake. We supply the table, chairs, BBQ and propane… all you have to do is bring the marinated steaks, some of your favorite drinks, and your “time to relax” pants. If you have never experienced it then take our word for it.. there really is nothing quite like a BBQ by the water..

For our final picture, we thought you might like to see what the view is from your PRIVATE dock..

Cabin 1 DockThis, friends, is what happiness and relaxation looks like..

At this time, we have one opening left for Cabin 1 for all summer! But we will post the availability for what’s left for this summer and also September!

If you’ve made the decision you want to grab one of these sweet cabin openings, then head to our Request Availability page, fill out a booking form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you have never stayed with us before, please ensure you read our Policies page (you will also be requested to agree to our policies when filling out your booking form).

NOW keep in mind, our bookings work on a first come, first serve basis. To fully secure a cabin we do require a one night deposit. In which case, once you make your booking we will call you shortly after to secure your reservation.

Alrighty then, let’s do this!

Anywho, we’re off for a quick sunshine filled paddle board (which we also do rent if your interested ;))! Hope you enjoyed this weeks blog, and stay tuned for next week.. who knows.. it might be another cabin feature blog! Woohoo!!

 

May Long Madness!

Pristine Wilderness

The Lake Is Calling & You Must Go

Finally May Long weekend! It felt like decades for this day to arrive!

Now just remember, when your in the midst of your packing for this weekend (whether that be after work or right now), and frustration seems to be rising slowly because conveniently you can’t find that darn essential peg for your tent (or rain cover), or your trailer hitch is being unusually uncooperative… take a deep breath.. this is the LAST obstacle before you get to Echo Lake Resort. After setting up here, it’s all easy riding here on out!

In attempt to make your stay much smoother and stress free, there are a few things we wanted to let you all know about:

  1. You JUST found out there is no fire ban on… and you didn’t pack any firewood.. DON’T stress it. We are selling bundles up here for a mere $5/bundle!
  2. Oh wait, you have a portable propane campfire (you smart devil you).. but aaagghhh, you forgot to refill before the long weekend and now your going to have to join all those lengthy “last-minute” lines at the gas stations. PSHH skip the lines, head up here and relax because YES we sell propane. Lines are for schmucks anyhow (smile).
  3. What is May Long weekend with no ice…? Answer: There is no such thing as May Long without ice, how else are you supposed to cool your drinks!? We are selling both block ice and cube ice for all your cooling needs!
  4. What about a boat for fishing? Well if you staying with us, we do have boats for rental! Canoes, SUPS, Kayaks, Motor, and Pedal boats are for rental this weekend. You are also able to reserve ahead of time, but be sure to do so sooner then later as it’s starting to book up quickly!
  5. Lastly, if the grocery store is just a bit too much for you today (15 minute checkout line JUST for ketchup??) then head on up here. We got smokies, bread/buns, chips, pops, treats, and sorts at our small convenient store all stocked up and ready for you this weekend!

Okay, I think we got everything covered. Oh, one last thing (I promise this is the last one) if your family members or friends want to join you last minute for your camping trip at Echo Lake Resort please be aware that we have NO CAMPING SITES or CABINS available for this long weekend. This also includes them setting up a tent on your site, as the sites have been booked specifically for your size of rig and is unable to fit another tent.

Now for those of you who have been patiently waiting for the last of July and August cabin availability…

Be sure to go through the list and if you find one that’s your kind of cabin available for your kind of dates, then head to our Request Availability page, fill out a booking form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you have never stayed with us before, please ensure you read our Policies page (you will also be requested to agree to our policies when filling out your booking form).

NOW keep in mind, our bookings work on a first come, first serve basis. To fully secure a cabin we do require a one night deposit. In which case, once you make your booking we will call you shortly after to secure your reservation.

Alright, let’s DO THIS…..

A Reel Expert Can Tackle Anything

WHAT A WEEKEND!

The sun has been shining, the temperature so far has been top notch, and the fishing has been plentiful! We absolutely love seeing Echo Lake Resort come alive in our spring and summer season, we cannot even count the amazing guests we’ve had so far who are just full of laughter and good times!! Thanks to all who have stayed with us thus far and for those of you heading our way soon, we are very much looking forward to having you stay with us!

Just an update on Echo Lake News: for those guests who intend on coming up for a boat sometime between now and October, BEWARE. There are two incredibly cute ducks who have gotten into the knack of stalking a few of our boaters and possibly jumping in so they can eat lunch with you. We haven’t been able to catch these cuties in action but once we do, we will be sure to post some pictures. Also congrats to one of our guests, who caught himself quite the whopper! This catch was just an absolute beauty and as you can tell by those smiles, they’re hard work most definitely paid off!

Echo Lake Resort May Whopper

We love our happy campers!

Now for this weeks post (yes, we know we’re totally late on our blog post but hey! There was some fishing to be had!), we wanted to post May and June cabin availability. These are our prime months for some solid fishing and early enough that guests don’t experience that serious 29 degree heat out on the water! So if your looking for some nice time off for you and your clan, be sure to check out these May and June cabin availability below!

If you’ve made the decision you want to grab one, then head to our Request Availability page, fill out a booking form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you have never stayed with us before, please ensure you read our Policies page (you will also be requested to agree to our policies when filling out your booking form).

Echo Lake Resort has been ca-razy busy (yup, even for a Monday and Tuesday) with this may fly hatch happening!

You wanna join the fun but got no boat? No worries, we have a select few of our boats available for rent this spring season! So if you would like to rent a boat please be sure to give us a call and reserve your boat (we do require a credit card number or $250 cash deposit).

A friendly reminder to all our guests who are using or plan on using the boat launch, all boats using the Echo Lake Resort boat launch must have a max 10hp motor. Also, if you plan on getting in on all this fishing action, be sure to grab your anglers license at home as we do not offer it here at the resort!

Alright, enough with the reminders. Lets get into the good stuff.. May and June cabin availability!
Tis the season of hitting up some prime heat and sunshine and still reaping the benefits of having the whole lake to yourself:).

That’s all for this week folks, so we will be sending out another post next week with our availability in July and August. Prepare for it to be a bit smaller as we are almost booked up, but as soon as you see the one you like email or call us and we will book it as soon as possible!

Enjoy the rest of your week and don’t forget the SPF this weekend (looking at 27 up at Echo Lake Resort this Saturday)!!

The Day Has Finally Arrived…

Yes, that’s right! Echo Lake Resort is now open for the season!

We have SO many things to let you know about and not enough room on this blog, SO we will do our best to make it short and sweet!

Campsite availability is looking pretty good for the month of May, so if your thinking of going for a camp soon you know where to find us. BUT we should probably let you know that the weather is looking AH-MAZING for the next little while *cough cough* up to 30 degrees *cough cough*. So don’t wait until the sites are all booked up to get yourself a beautiful sunny site, beat the crowds and send us an email to reserve your spot!

Also, we added two SUP boards to our list of rentals! Yoga in the morning? Savasa-YES. How about SUP fly fishing? Absolutely epic. Honestly, these boards are fantastic for some silent nature watching or just getting out to relax in the sunshine. Your welcome to give us a call to reserve these SUPS with your cabin or site rentals days, just to ensure you have them!

Lastly, Echo Lake Resort had their fish stocked this season! Whoohoo for us! We grabbed a couple photos for you guys to check out and enjoy the lovely restock of our lake. If you catch a couple of our little guys, be kind and throw them back in for some more growing. Don’t worry they’ll be waiting for you next time, and maybe they’ll give you more of a reel challenge (no pun intended).

FREEDOM!

This Wednesday coming up, we will be posting our availability for May and June cabins! Stay tuned for some sweet cabin openings!

“The Sun is Shining and The Weather is Sweet Here”

Echo Lake Resort Cabin 5

Now Imagine Yourself Here..

Pretty sure it’s days like these that inspired Bob Marley’s “Sun is Shining”!

Its been absolutely stunning here at Echo Lake Resort; the water is sparkling, the breeze is just right, and the sun is really shining!

For those of you who are wondering about our boat rentals, we are just finishing up the maintenance and they should be up and running soon. Stay posted, I promise to write up a blog as soon as we get the green to go!

On that note if you have a boat or are able to borrow a boat until we can begin renting ours, be sure to stop at Echo Lake Resort as we have a boat launch available to the public. It’s a $5 parking and launch fee, a small price to pay to get access to some prime fishing (smile).

We’ve been asked a lot lately, “How’s the fishing up there?”

Well the saying goes “a picture says a thousand words”, so here’s a picture in response to your questions about the fishing..

Bob From Vernon

Nothing quite like a fisherman’s smile, if we say so ourselves. Now that we’ve cleared that concern up, go grab your rod, bring the sandwiches, stop by the office if your needing to launch your boat and get ready for a relaxing day on the water!

We think its safe to say that this gorgeous weather we’ve been having is just a taste of what is to come for May and June… so we decided to post our May and June cabin availability for those who were thinking it was gonna be a wet spring! If any of these dates catch your eye, go to our Request Availability page, fill out the request form and we will get back to you as soon as possible! Please keep in mind that we operate on a “first come, first serve” basis and cannot block off any available dates without proper and adequate confirmation.

July And August Availability 2016

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Pristine Wilderness

Can you believe that we open in a little over two weeks?! Where did the time go!??

Last couple days have been absolutely PERFECT for fishing. The sun was out, the fish were jumping, and it was honestly the most perfect temperature to get in your boat and fish ALL day..

Missed out last weekend because you had no where to launch your boat? No worries! Come stop by Echo Lake Resort, we charge a $5 boat launch fee which also includes the fee for parking! We will be around this weekend, so be sure to stop by the office and say hello!

Also, with this magnificant summer-like weather, we must remind guests that our resort (aside from the boat launch) is closed. The resort and on-site store (which includes snacks, bait, rod rentals, etc) will be opening May 2nd! Keep in mind, we will be spending majority of our time preparing for the season, so we are unable to allow day passes for those guests who would just like to have lunch by the water.. we absolutely do not blame you because who doesn’t love a little sun while eating, but we don’t want to ruin your lunch view with us cleaning old leaves and other jobs right beside you!

Our boats are getting their make-over this week also, so we are unable to offer any boat rentals at this time! Please stay posted though, as when we do have them up and running I will be posting the news ASAP to ensure our guests get out on the water for some good fishin!

Regarding our cabins this year,

we have been so swamped with emails from guests wondering what we have available for July and August cabins, we thought it would be best to repost it for all those who are still looking for some lakefront summertime relaxation!If any of these dates catch your eye, go to our Request Availability page, fill out the request form and we will get back to you as soon as possible! Please keep in mind that we operate on a “first come, first serve” basis and cannot block off any available dates without proper and adequate confirmation. If any of the above mentioned dates may interest you, please be in touch as soon as possible so we may secure for you the requested cabins and dates. We will update this list on a weekly basis with the remaining openings for July and August!

CHECK IT: June Cabin Availability!!

Echo Lake Resort

Nothing quite like a spring evening..

Good afternoon folks!

Sorry for the late blog post, yesterday turned into more of a projects day then expected! We are in the process of completing small make overs on a couple of our outhouses.. it is baffling how quickly time can fly when your attempting to add a little rustic “feng shui” to small outdoor bathrooms.

Enough about outhouse makeovers, onto the good stuff!! Below is the full cabin availability list for June. Now if your not fully committed to the full experience of an Okanagan summer (we’re talking about 30+ degrees sunshine and heat), this June availability is definitely something you want to check out. Its cool enough at night (no AC required) to sleep quite comfortably and warm enough in the days for you to hit the water fishing or swimming and enjoy some pleasant (but not overbearingly hot) sunshine.

If a couple cabins interest you, please be sure to head to our Request Availability page, fill out a booking form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible. If you have never stayed with us before, please ensure you read our Policies page (you will also be requested to agree to our policies when filling out your booking form).

NOW, keep in mind, our bookings work on a first come, first serve basis. To fully secure a cabin we do require a one night deposit. In which case, once you make your booking we will call you shortly after to secure your reservation.
