If you buy a piece of land at Cottonwood Cove, get ready for a beautiful, amenity-packed RV Resort surrounded by premier Shuswap waterfront in a private, secluded cove.
“My idea behind developing Cottonwood Cove was a wilderness camping feel—there’s lots of beautiful Cottonwood trees that dot the shoreline and the property has a rustic look—but it’s a five-star luxury resort,” Cottonwood Cove developer Greg Darroch says. “You have access to all the vacation-style amenities, the bells and whistles. People want to go in their RV, and the hair dryer better work, and the air conditioning better work. They think they’re roughing it, but they’re at home, so to speak.”
Cottonwood Cove offers whole ownership RV lots complete with full-service hookups, 50-amp power, fire pits and the option to personalize your lot with deck, fence or shed upgrades. After six years of the required red tape Darroch finally was able to start selling lots earlier this year, 40 of which have already been purchased.
What makes Cottonwood Cove unique is its one-kilometre stretch of sandy beach on Shuswap Lake. Normally in a camping area there is one small beach, but at Cottonwood Cove you can choose any spot in the entire development.
Cottonwood Cove allows you to enjoy both the relaxation of the outdoors and the comforts of home with access to wireless Internet, laundry services, shower facilities and municipal water. The resort features a marina and private boat launch, an outdoor pool and spa, a watersport rental shop, two playgrounds, a designated dog park, and internal hiking trails connecting to a provincial park.
Other notable features include a newly built clubhouse featuring The Cove Bar and Grill Restaurant, an ice cream shop, a convenience store and community pavilion.
“It’s really a second property,” Darroch says. “Guests RVs are fully loaded and equipped with everything necessary to ensure a ‘home away from home’ experience. Once through the secured entry gate, it’s easy to park and play.”
The best part is you can leave your RV and boat at the resort all year long, as security is on site 12 months a year. Owners can also rent out their lots with onsite management.
The resort is only a 10-minute drive off the Trans-Canada Highway and located next to Tsútswecw Provincial Park, formerly known as Roderick Haig-Brown. Darroch boasts that Cottonwood Cove is turning into a community of its own.
