Away but Close

You can get away from the big city, on a simply stunning lake, and in a part of Canada that offers some of what Canada does best: quiet, natural beauty. However, this area is still convenient if you’re living in a retirement home but still independent and interested in visiting family in Vancouver or the surrounding area.
