Countless starry night skies, a midday sun-drenched deck, a warming fire, and endless opportunities for exploring will renew your heart and call you back for more.
Bring your own sense of adventure or learn to enjoy your own company. This is a solitary retreat that everyone needs!

We loved it there! 18 and all!
"All 18 of us had a great time, enjoying the outdoors, playing on the trampoline,
playing board games beside the nice warm fire and watching Anne of Green Gables.
Thanks so much for having all of us out here!"

Backroad Bounty became my business name in 2018. The name is directly related to our search for wild berries along the many fair weather backroads in our area.
I have been selling bread and baking for most of my adult life. I have been involved with Farmers Markets in Bonnyville and Salmon Arm in the past and in the summer of 2020 I joined the Farmers Markets in Caroline and Sylvan Lake. From 2014-2020, my husband and I managed Pine Lake Christian Camp. I was the head cook and managed the kitchen and kitchen staff.
Making jams and jellies started as a fundraiser for the camp and after it ended I thought; this is something I could continue with and carry right into my retirement, and so I am.
