Centrally located yet a really quiet place. We had a good night sleep and highly recommend this place to anyone traveling through Salmon Arm. Thank you Travellin6.

Great Hosts, great place to stay!

Wonderful hosts! Kind, helpful, and answered all the questions we had about the area. Even though they were both busy they took the time to make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. Location is just on the outskirts of town so close enough to easily access the services and amenities of the town but far enough away to feel like you're in the country. The view of the mountains, the sound of the trains in the distance, the wide open space of Hidden Gem all add up to a great place to stay and relax. Highly recommend.

Big property, nice people.

Folks were busy but still helpful. Gave us a tin of homemade cookies and helped solving a problem requiring an air compressor.

Lots of room in a grassy field.

Wonderful place for a peaceful scenic stay

We loved our time on this beautiful property. The host was so warm and welcoming and there was ample space for us to park and make ourselves at home. The area is super peaceful so after our long drive, we were able to relax right away and slept soundly. We loved chatting with the family who were very kind and helpful. We wish them all the best with their next trip!

We really enjoyed the limited amount of time we spent with the hosts. They were genuine and friendly. The location was peaceful, and close to the Salmon Arm area. Would recommend this location with no hesitation.

Amazing Hosts with a Beautiful Property

We spent three nights with our 30 ft motorhome on this beautiful and spacious property. The hosts were great to talk to and provided us with a wealth of information to help with our future travels. We also received produce and the most delicious honey from their own production. We highly recommend this host and would stay there again!

Second stay

What a joy to return to the lovely Hidden Gem and enjoy the peace and quiet that their property affords. As before, our hosts were most gracious and even allowed us to heat up our supper in their microwave. They were most welcoming and again I was able to take advantage of buying fresh, organic eggs from them again. Thank you so much to two sweet ladies.

Wonderful

Hidden Gem was a God send and just what we needed! A quiet and beautiful spot to put down in, for a couple of weary travellers. Enjoyed an encouraging conversation with our hostess. Even able to buy a dozen organic eggs from their road side stand. Perfect!

Awesome

Travellin6 family is very friendly, super nice and accommodating. We were greeted with cold drinks and some local fruits upon arrival, which is nice of them. The place is quiet and peaceful, surrounded by greeneries, which made our stay very pleasant and comfortable. We hope to go back again sometime as we enjoy Salmon Arm. The Margaret Fall is super nice and interesting. Thanks again to the travelling6 family, your kindness is greatly appreciated.
