The NeighborhoodHope is a small town of ~7,000 people, quiet community, but it's busy on the weekends, summers and holidays. Because of its close proximity to Vancouver (90 min drive), and being on 2 major highways (TC 1 and 3), the city has all kinds of amenities for visitors - visitor centre, restaurants, parks, trails, camp grounds, cinema, golf course, bowling alley, grocery and liquor stores, boutique and artisan stores, gas stations, etc. We would be happy to provide you with information and recommendations or show you around. Our property is located on the very quiet part of the city, on a cul-de-sac, the city centre is a 3 min drive or 20 min walk. There is a corner-store located within 3 min walk from the house. You can also walk to the lake with a beautiful beach and playground in 10 min, or you can drive for 2 min. During the summer, time there is a Saturday village market with lots of local artisans and crafters attending it (including my Mom with her baked goods - yumm! ). Hope is also known as the chain saw carving capital of Canada, you will find lots of carved sculptures around the town and in August there is a big annual festival. An antique car show is also hosted here on the Canada Day weekend (July 1st), lots of fun! After the first weekend in Sep, there is also a big celebration with fireworks. The city has a nice recreation centre with an ice rink, gym, library and an indoor swimming pool for public use - very affordable!
We are also close to the Manning Park resort. It's only a 40 min drive to this spectacular park with breathtaking hikes in the summer time and snowshoeing, snowboarding, downhill or cross country skiing or snow tubing activities in the winter time. Come back from your busy day in the park to soak in the hot tub, enjoy the outdoor or indoor fireplaces and a glass of wine. Getting AroundIt is super easy to get here from any nearby urban areas - Vancouver, Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Seattle, etc. Greyhound buses also stop in Hope, the station being a 20 min walk from our house, but of course we would be happy to pick you up from the stop if you let us know your arrival schedule.
