It was an excellent location. I would recommend it as an excellent venue. The only cravat was that the lift wasn't working -- thus a fireman's carry for one guest! Also no air conditioning.

It was amazing.....bringing back this beautiful boat which was built prior to 1914 in Thunder Bay Ontario and assembled in Vernon BC. It is a step back in time that I really enjoyed.....congratulations to all the volunteers who so miticulously restored her.

Hi J! Thanks for asking, visitor times change a little, so the best option is to check the opening times on the Sicamous website (go to the main ss Sicamous site and click the "visit us" tab at the top). Hope this helps! :)
