Voice of BC's Professional Bed & Breakfast Industry

Mara is located on the Shuswap River in the Shuswap region of British Columbia, enjoying a gentle climate, relaxed lifestyle, and abundant recreational activities. The Shuswap and Okanagan areas are havens for boaters and vacationers looking for a summer holiday on the water. Mara Lake is popular, and nearby Sicamous on Shuswap Lake touts itself as the Houseboat Capital of Canada. Further south, Lake Okanagan stretches all the way from Vernon south to Penticton, with numerous parks and campsites set in the wilderness. Rosemond Lake is situated at the south end of Mara Lake. Access to the lake is by canoe or row boat under the railway trestle from Mara Lake, motorboats are not allowed. Ask your Mara Bed and Breakfast B&Bkeepers for the best birdwatching spots, as this is a popular area to see eagles, osprey, geese, swans, ducks and loons.
