Description

This is a perfect pet-friendly property for a family getaway or romantic weekend away! The wood floors, wood panelled walls, exposed beams and vintage lamps give this cottage an extremely rustic and cosy feel. There is a small slate entryway to leave your shoes and hang coats. This leads into the kitchen, which has been renovated with timber cabinetry, laminate countertops and tiled floor. The kitchen has a freestanding oven with four cooktops, a large fridge and microwave. It opens onto a small dining area, with a round four seater table, great for intimate dinners. The lounge area has a futon, which can be used for extra sleeping space, as well as a comfy leather armchair and quaint wooden rocking chair. A floor-to-roof glass sliding door makes this the perfect spot for watching boats float by on the lake. When it’s too dark to enjoy views of the lake, there’s a large box TV with DVD, VCR and surround sound, or curl up with a book in the rocking chair in front of the propane fireplace. There’s also an impressive collection of board games. You can also while the dark hours away in your own private hot tub on the deck just off the living area and with views over the lake. The deck is equipped with a BBQ, as well as a table and four chairs, so that in the warmer months you can do most of your living outdoors to make the most of the beautiful outlook.

The second bedroom also provides hot tub access and stunning lake vistas through a second floor-to-ceiling glass sliding door. You’ll feel like royalty going to sleep on the queen bed with huge polished log bed frame. There are two built-in bedside tables, a wooden chest of drawers and closet to hang clothes out of sight.

The main bathroom has a full bath with shower, toilet, modern corner vanity and heated slate floors for those chilly Winter mornings.

The master bedroom is extremely spacious, featuring a queen bed with solid wood mission-style bed frame, chest of drawers, bedside tables and built-in cupboards. A single couch which folds out to a bed has been built into a step-up alcove to add an extra sleeping space or you may want to pull it out for use as a daybed. The ensuite has a full bath with shower, corner vanity, toilet and heated slate tiles.

The property also has free access to Boats at the resort on a first come, first serve basis. Any guest can help themselves to the oars, life-jackets and the boats. There is a total of 6 - 14ft row boats and 4 - 16ft canoes.

We had a wonderful time vacationing at the Minnow Suite this past weekend in February, 2018. The suite was very tidy and charming, and identical to the photos shown online. We highly recommend the suite.

The Minnow Suite was great. It was very clean when we arrived and was perfect for 2 families to stay in. The kitchen was stocked with all appliances needed. Great wrap around deck! Hot tub was clean and hot and ready...even had hot tub towels to use! We were here during the winter and brought up our snowmobiles. Parking is a bit tight. Id stay here again and recommend this suite!

Thanks Tara! We are glad you had a great stay at Idabel Lake.

My sisters and I planned a winter get away for January. We stayed for two nights at the Minnow suite at Idabel Lake. We had an amazing time going snow shoeing and enjoyed the hot tub to relax in at the end of our day. We will definitely be back it is a winter wonderland at Idabel Lake.
Response from RentChalets
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us at Idabel Lake. It's great to hear you and your sisters had a great time exploring the stunning lake surrounds and taking advantage of the hot tub. We'd love to welcome you back to stay with us again soon.

Easily accessible, even in the winter. There is a small community on Idabel lake, so the roads are well maintained. I was there in the winter, and the cabin was warm, and cozy.The power went out one night from a downed power line near Big White. We were able to cuddle up around the fire, and had a great time for the few hours until it was fixed (it was fixed that evening). We had a fantastic stay.
Response from RentChalets
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and that everything was easily accessible in this remote location. We are thrilled to hear that even in the event of the uncontrollable you were still able to keep warm and make the most out of your stay at Idabel lake. We are glad you had a fantastic stay and hope to see you stay with us again.

The suite was ideal for our family and was clean and in good condition. That cannot be said for the infrastructure though. I understand that there had been heavy snowfall this past winter but that is no excuse for loose railings protruding nails, wobbly stairs etc. Location was excellent though.
Response from RentChalets
We are glad you had a satisfying vacation and got to enjoy the quiet peaceful location. We are so sorry to hear about infrastructure not being up to par. We have made a note so that this can be fixed in the future to ensure safety for all our guests. Thank you for your feedback and we hope to see you visit again.

We have stayed at the Minnow Suite before and it has a lot of ambiance and very cozy. The kitchen is very well equipped. Plenty of towels for the hot tub and the bathrooms have heated tile floors. The only complaint we had this time was the hot tub jets were constantly coming on which was very annoying during the night as it is very close to the bed. Perfect location for cross country skiing at McCullough
Response from RentChalets
Thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. We're glad you found Minnow Suite cozy and well equipped! Thanks for letting us know about the hot tub issue, we employ our own in-house hot tub-maintenance staff so we will certainly have the problem fixed. We hope to welcome you back to Idabel Lake again soon!

A Vacation Away From Technology And One-with-Nature

The accommodation was very nice and rustic. The scenery was surreal. But we were a bit disappointed on the fishing though; maybe a bit late in the season. But it was nice to sit in the canoes and fish from the docks, watch the sunset from our balcony and relax in the hot tub after a day fishing and hiking.
We were expecting a "pet-friendly" environment for our dogs. That was not the case when we arrived; so many restrictions on where we could take our dogs to enjoy the vacation with us. We resolved to take our dogs out of the resort for walks. There was no dog-park or dog-friendly area, so we were restricted to staying indoors with our dogs when we were at the resort as they were not to be left alone in the suite.
Other than the pet restriction we found the resort okay but smelly at times (I think it had to do with their water intake from the lake issue they were having while we were there).
Response from RentChalets
Hi Annilene, I am sorry you felt restricted with your dogs and will pass on your comments to the resort board as RentChalets has no control over the resort rules relating to dog restrictions. It's a pity about the fishing but happy you guys still enjoyed the lake and the hot tub! The views from the hot tub deck are pretty amazing when the sun is setting. Thanks, Cris

The place generally is great and enjoyed the lake, the free canoeing and its safetyness with all the life jackets ready in place. The accommodation is good. Our last day of stay was such a challenge as we have no water but management was able to find a way to have at least water available from the lake to use for washrooms.
Response from RentChalets
Hi Meriam, happy you enjoyed the canoes, the water system did break and I believe the caretaker ensured everyone was aware. Subsequently we shipped in bottles of water once we were aware of the problem. David Rentchalets

We are sorry to hear of these inconveniences during your stay at Idabel lake. We have made note of them and have made fixes since your stay. We have also made note of the updates this suite needs, and are glad to hear the Maintenance man Todd could be of service to you.
