In the spring of 1999 we completed the new guest cabin so we
could start our Driving Training Weekends. We specialize in
beginning driving training with singles, pairs, and if your up to it, a four-in-hand.
Since then we have been booked solid and enjoyed working with
every guest. Pictured above are some of our previous guests.
Lumby is located in the North
Okanagan part of the Interior of British Columbia Canada. The area
features plenty of recreation such as hiking, skiing, fishing,
motocross, and wine tours.
We are now taking reservations so if you are
interested, just call us or email for available
times and rates. The cabin, located in a private corner of the property overlooks a pond,
the arena, and Trinity Valley. It has been a big hit and people enjoy it's rustic but
Now that Brian is retired we will
be extending our bookings to include mid-week driving and training.
