Turn east at Tappen Co-op onto Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road and continue to the end of the road, about 28 kms. From the Sicamous Channel bridge you can look across the lake, that's Totem Pole Resort.

About Totem Pole
The jewel at the end of the road is how first visitors describe our small resort / strata community comprised of 32 cottages, store, tennis court, marine fuel and swim area. We are a proud community of families who love Totem Pole, our historic carved totem is iconic on the Shuswap, welcoming visitors to our resort.

You are welcoming in your spirit and a skilled problem solver with general maintenance experience related to managing a resort community.

Resort security is a daily routine, which includes cottage checks and inspection of our facilities. A new responsibility includes managing the foreshore and performing surveillance on Owners boats that are moored.

The view from your deck is included at no charge.

The major demands on the resort are from May-September, which allows for entrepreneurial opportunities in the shoulder season at Totem Pole and within our Bastion Bay community. We offer you a comfortable location to make Totem a priority at the same time a base from which you can consider additional services in the shoulder season. Some of those services have included, dock building, cottage renovation services, caretaking and security services.
