This is a very close community which has woven a storied legacy, with traditional indigenous winter and summer houses still standing nearby by the Quaaout Lodge and Talking Rock Resort. Today, the area is renowned for its temperate climate, family friendly activities and for being a summertime playground for kids and adults of all ages. The Squilax Lakehouse stands proudly on 141 feet of prime Little Shuswap Lake waterfront on the Squilax-Anglemont border.
