Your Imaginary Friend's Cabin - 20 mins away!

Who knew? Renting a boat at Deer Lake in Burnaby

is really, really AWESOME! If I hadn't a reason to go, this local

would've scoffed at the suggestion of spending a prized Saturday

afternoon at lake buttressed by major traffic congestion routes.

SCOFFED! And I would have been wrong.

 

Here's what great about

renting a boat at Deer

Lake:

 

- Deer Lake is big. Big enough for a couple of hours tootling around it.

 

-

Though it's off Hwy 1 and Canada Way (yuck), all you can see are

mountains, greenery and the lake.

 

- They rent rowboats, kayaks, canoes and peddle boats for 1-4 people. Huge

selection!

 

- The staff are extremely proactive, friendly and

helpful.

 

- In just 20 mins from downtown, you can feel like

you're at an imaginary friend's lakeside cabin, dragging your toes in

their water, sunning yourself caring only for how much humous and goat

cheese is left.

 

- It's serene, pretty and easy (who doesn't like

that combo?) rejuvenating one's passion for living in this magical place.
