Finding the perfect place to spend our family summer vacation is mind-bogling. We finally ended up booking Blueberry Springs, a secluded cottage located in the North Shuswap, right beside Albas Provincial Park after doing some research on VRBO and reading the positive reviews about it. We knew we wanted a cabin near a lake, but I really had no idea what we were in store for. Blueberry Springs is truly an untouched beautiful paradise in the middle of the BC wilderness. The property spans twenty acres of private land for my two adventurous sons to explore. Some of our biggest thrills were the animal sightings. We encountered a black bear, frogs, hummingbirds, deer, including a doe and her two fawns. We just don’t get to see that kind of wildlife at our home in the city. We spent our days swimming in a secluded cove in Shuswap lake, going for hikes to the nearby Albas Falls set in a mountain rainforest, picking wild berries, eating smores, swinging in hammocks, skipping stones, and just truly enjoying the great outdoors. You don’t know what you’re missing unless you have had an outdoor shower in a rain storm in the woods. There are two hammocks hanging right above the springs that run through the property where we spent many afternoons lazing in the sun. Here are some photos that best captured our memories of stay at Blueberry Springs.
