The Daigle family, Surrey BC


Wir haben uns so gefreut auf Bear Valley und haben es mit noch mehr Freude genossen.
Die Abgeschiedenheit lässt einen rasch zur Ruhe finden. Es hat uns allen so sehr gefallen dass es uns leid tut jetzt schon wieder abfahren zu muessen.
Heute ist nicht alle Tage…
Wir werden oft an Euch denken, Danke
Karl und Familie/ Austria

What a treasure! There is not much that can top sitting on the porch of such a cozy cabin, looking at and enjoying the view and the quiet and just letting the day go past.
What a perfect way to end the summer. Thank you very much.

Cabin mit Flair und sehr guter Ausstattung. Tolle Lage. Natur pur. Aussicht auf schneebedeckte Gipfel. Am Himmel zieht der Adler seine Kreise und nachts jaulen die Kojoten. Barbara und Jürgen haben alles getan, damit wir uns wohlfühlen. Der Urlaub war einfach super.

Wir hatten die große Ehre, einen Teil unseres Kanada-Urlaubs in einem der beiden wunderschönen Blockhäuser verbringen zu dürfen. Sie sind an Wohnlichkeit nicht zu überbieten, so daß es einem unsagbar schwer fällt, die Heimreise anzutreten. In traumhafter Umgebung genießt man die Ruhe und Unberührtkeit der Natur. Wir kommen wieder, ganz bestimmt!!!

I attended Susan Ogilvie’s plein air pastel workshop at Bear Valley Highlands, BC this September and thoroughly enjoyed both the workshop and the venue.  The log cabins we stayed in are very well built and comfortable while our host Barbara Fresz cooked excellent meals that were just as advertised, both delicious and healthy. She and her family strive to be as organic as possible.  Barbara and her husband Jurgen (Joe) were most gracious and attentive to our group needs during the whole stay.  I would happily return to another workshop at this location and can recommend this venue for either a workshop or artist retreat,
