Rec Hall interior renovations

Welcome to Billie Bear’s historic Rec Hall!

Guests will enjoy gracious comfort next season in a gathering place that harkens back to an earlier era. The dining room of Camp Billie Bear, now the Rec Hall, was built in the 1920s, when an addition was added to the lake side of an older log building. Through many years the building was the social centre of camp, lodge, and resort.

The Rec Hall is ready to step back into its role. Rehabilitation over the past two years has strengthened the structure and retained its important heritage attributes. While a number of logs had to be replaced, many of the original timbers remain. New complements old, adding the latest contribution to the many changes made by a succession of users over the years.

A few new policies…

For 2018 we asked for a stronger commitment from our guests, in the form of increased deposits for our cottages and the Lodge. The larger deposits help us to offer two new options:

- If you notice a vacancy on our website and would like to switch cottages to take advantage of the opening, we will transfer your deposit to the new rental upon payment of an administration fee of $50 before June 1 of the given year or $250 if you make the change after June 1. You have no further obligation for the original reservation.

- Any high-season vacancies in our 1-bedroom or larger cottages that remain after June 1 may be booked for periods of 2 days or more.

Lengths of stay for the Lodge (3 nights minimum during the summer, 2 nights minimum spring and fall) and studios (any length of stay) remain the same as in past years.

Our cancellation policy remains the same – a guest cancelling a high-season reservation (without switching to another cottage) after May 1 is responsible for full payment unless we are able to re-rent the cottage. A partial re-booking of course reduces the amount owing accordingly.


Cancellation of high season reservations (Canada Day weekend until Labour Day weekend, plus Thanksgiving weekend) must be received before May 1. If you cancel your cottage reservation after May 1, full payment is due if we cannot re-book your space.

For spring and fall reservations, cancellations must be received more than 14 days prior to your arrival. If you cancel your cottage reservation within 14 days of your arrival, full payment is due unless we can re-book your space.

All deposits on reservations are non-refundable.
