Dragon's Gate is a beautiful retreat into nature. Here you can drink in the quiet countryside while enjoying the unique crystal spa and pool. You can take delightful walks into the back woods were elk, bear and deer daily roam. Your hosts Auriel and Moz are happy to answer any concerns to make your stay the most memorable and enjoyable. Full kitchen providing everything with cooking in mind. Pool and hot tub with lit giant crystals. Very magical. Come immerse yourselves in nature. Get away from the bustle of the city to enjoy the quiet delights of Nature. The gardens around the farm are bursting with colorful flowers to delight the senses. Dragon's Gate is a bio-dynamic farm as well as home to a museum quality giant crystal collection. It is a unique experience for the heart, body and soul. We are outside of cell phone coverage (it is better for the bees), but we provide wifi for your communication needs. We are an easy walking distance to the Skookumchuck River which is across the road from us.
New construction apartment that overlooks the countryside. No pets allowed even those in residence on the farm. The pool and hot tub are available at all hours though it is quiet time from 10pm until 12noon. The premises is available for viewing though we ask consideration for what is growing on the farm and to ask to pick or eat from the gardens. You are free to pick all the wildflowers you desire from the back hundred acres which are lush from late May through July. Keep all gates closed as posted. Animals are being rotated through the fields.
Very nice, spacious place, nicely furnished and very new, we must have been among the first guests to stay there. Very uncommon (but pleasant!) is the heated outdoor pool and hot tub - enjoyed that quite a bit in the afternoons. The hosts have been very friendly and communicative and tried to help us with all questions we had. The house is on a farm (very rural area) so you get to see lots of animals - would also be a great place for kids.
On the downside (and that's why we didn't give 5 stars) there was still a lot of development activity going on on the outside (landscaping, building, ...) hence it was a bit noisy during the day. Also, since the place is so new there were still some things missing in the apartment (kitchen utensils and such) ...
Bottom line is - we enjoyed staying there despite the little flaws and the place is definitely a recommendation, especially once the outside work is finished.
My husband and I are from the Northwest. I lived in Seattle my whole life until two years ago when we moved to our new place in the country. The city has much to offer, but the country life is where we want to be. We love the quiet of the farms and the vibrant wildlife that surrounds us.
