We visited Idabel Lake this summer and loved our stay. We stayed in cabin #8, a small cabin away from the main resort - very quiet with great lake views.

My fiancee and I had the good fortune to stumble upon the Idabel Lake Resort mid-way through a trip to the BC Interior. What a fantastic destination! We were greeted by Len, who could not have been a more friendly, knowledgable or genuine host. The view from the cabin was absolutely spectacular with beautiful lily pads on a pristine lake...

“We were in #8, which is the highest cottage. But we could drive right down by the dock with all our fishing gear. If you are travelling with small children you may want to choose a cottage or suite closer to the playground and beach area. If you want more privacy and a very large deck #8 is an awesome choice, complete with Satellite TV.”
