  • Great cabins

    Great cabins. Surroundings beautiful. Some of the signage and old caravan site could do with a bit of a tidy up / refresh.

  • Belinda was great! She was very communicative and informative

    Belinda was great! She was very communicative and informative. The town of Colville was very cool! The general store was amazing. They have SO many things in there and the selection was incredible. Like for real; they pack a bunch into 1,000 sf or whatever. The ladies running the Store were super friendly. The cabin itself was the cleanest cabin ever. My wife is afraid of spiders and ticks and whatever insects are in the woods. And the Bush Cabins are definitely in the woods. Yet, clean as a whistle! And make sure to read the blue instruction book. Super helpful tips for the town, trails, and cabin. Even has a bunch of great maps for the trials. Very happy we had that info. We didn’t cook there so we can’t tell you about that. But the fridge is just a little portable one which was perfect for our needs. We bought coconut ice cream from the GS and it stayed frozen overnight so great little fridge (we did turn it up all the way and then turn it back to 4 when we left). But there are
