Home sweet home on the lakes

"SHUSWAP LAKE, B.C. – In the glow of a bonfire, we look out at the smooth-as-glass lake and see a loon skid across the water and gently touch down. Its melancholy call is all we hear, aside from the crackle of the fire.

Our floating house is docked a few metres away from us. We’re on shore for a night of relaxation that includes a stellar sunset, great food and the swapping of stories.

Congratulations to The Enchanted Forest!
