Area Information
The Shuswap Lake area is a world class vacation destination with 1,000 kilometres of shoreline to explore, amidst spectacular scenery and a pristine environment. The Shuswap is a five hour drive west from Calagary, Alberta and a five hour drive east of Vancouver, B.C. on Trans Canada Highway #1. Sunnybarae Cabin is 20 minutes from the TCH.

Shuswap Lake is shaped like an H and is made up of four large arms: the Shuswap Lake Main Arm, Salmon Arm, Anstey Arm, and Seymour Arm. The product of the glacial scouring that also rounded the surrounding Shuswap Highlands, all four arms converge at Cinnemousun Narrows, northeast of Sicamous.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

May 2012

Hello Tyhson:

It still seems as if that week at your cottage, and in sessions with you, were a dream. The only reason I know it was real, is that the magic of it all has had a permanent impact on my life. I rented a cottage, and the Universe sent me the gift I have been asking for, in you and Serah and that magical place of yours.

I have done a lot of healing work in my life. Since I forget the past, and for good reason, digging it up again seemed counter productive to me and yet some healing approaches require this. Your approach allowed for healing and removing blocks, without having to dredge up yuckiness! It focuses in the present and sets a tone for the future. So far so good. Though I feel that I still have my own strong mind to re-train, I now know that I am on a path that will get me to where I have always dreamed of going.

I thank you, thank you, thank you and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Love and Blessings,
Michele (and Jonathan)
