About our home

There truly is nothing like Gun Lake BC. Not a tourist destination (with the exception of heliskiing operation that's 20 minutes away) but you will never find a more amazing remote place to relax and enjoy all four seasons in Western Canada. Pictures only tell 1/2 of the story. We are very protective of this place and very much respect our neighbors.

Our indoor living is comfortable and made for families.... not pictured is a third bedroom with king bed and the downstairs lounging area with large sectional and big screen TV.

The outdoors is absolutely breathtaking so you won't find yourself spending that much time inside. This is the true BC wilderness so there are bears (both black/brown bears as well as grizzlies) in the area... not to mention every other animal native to BC. Hiking is unbelieveable and this is some of the most epic backcountry mountain biking in the world. A floatplane can pick you up on our dock and take you 60kms to a high alpine lake for a big day's ride back to the house. We can help arrange the trip. We have paddleboards and paddle boats and the lake is the clearest lake in BC (maybe Canada). The drinking water comes right out of the lake unfiltered and is better than any city water you've had in your life. Nothing like this place.

As noted, we're extremely protective of this place, and our neighbors. We may not swap with just everyone as this home is remote and access to any assistance at the property is pretty much non existant.

Access to Gun Lake can be by car/SUV which can be either 2.5 hours from Whistler (May-Nov) or 4.5 hours (Nov - May). Float plane access can also be arranged from Vancouer or Whistler.

A true paradise!

More about us

  1. We're a family of 5... three daughters aged 16, 6, and 2.

  2. We are both entrepreneurs. My wife has a fine jewelry business and I am in finance. Kids are all aspiring to be amazing!

  3. We love watching our girls run, swim, play in BC's amazing nature. Our homes feel like a family lives in them. We enjoy the finer things in life but we also love to ride bikes, work out (we both Crossfit), waterski, wake surf, snow ski.... while making homemade pizza, drinking great wine and always up for hosting other family and friends at both our home (in West Van) and our lakehouse (on Gun Lake). We're both up for anything and act like we're still in our 20s.
