Overview

Vernon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

'Dragonfly Cottage' is a family-oriented vacation home located in a private nine acre cottage community at the base of Silver Star Mountain. It is conveniently situated within 10 minutes of downtown Vernon, and is a pleasant 15 minute drive to the sun and powder of the ski slopes.

Our two level, 1100 square foot cottage is newly renovated and tastefully furnished, and equipped with all the comforts of home. Just bring groceries, your suitcase, and a chilled bottle of local wine, and you are set for your holiday. All of the bedrooms have new, pillow-top Serta mattresses, and high quality linens, so your sleeps will be quiet and restful.

Use the cottage as your home base to explore the beautiful Okanagan Valley. There are two parking stalls adjacent to the cottage, so bring your boat and spend your days on nearby Okanagan or Kalamalka Lake. Mountain bikers will love the thrill of taking the lift to the top of Silver Star Mountain, and exploring the trails and jumps. Bring your golf clubs and play each day at a different course--Predator Ridge, The Rise, Spallumcheen, to name a few. The trailhead for the BX Falls hike is within walking distance of the cottage. Hikers will also enjoy nearby Kalamalka, Silver Star, and Ellison Provincial Parks.

At the end of the day, enjoy a BBQ on the large sunny deck. The deck overlooks the pool, tennis, and basketball courts, as well as a large grassy green space, which is an ideal place to toss a football around, or play a game of baseball with the kids. At dusk, watch for the mother and baby deer that often graze at the edge of the forest.

Some of our most fun and magical family moments have come from our time at 'Dragonfly Cottage'. We invite you to create your own holiday memories here, while you visit the beautiful Okanagan.

If our calendar is booked for the dates you are looking for, please check our neighboring 'Hummingbird Cottage' for availability (see vrbo listing #318352). Our side-by-side cottages can be booked together to accommodate two family groups.

About Lisa and Doug

Doug, Lisa, Sasha, and Luke--we live in Greater Vancouver.

Lisa and Doug purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Lisa and Doug chose Vernon

Vernon is a small town in the middle of endless recreational opportunities. We wanted a place that would allow us to indulge in our favorite winter and summer activities.

What makes this cottage unique

We have busy city lives, and our cottage gives us an opportunity to have nothing but fun and relaxation. It is our place to reconnect as a family without the distractions of work and school.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your cottage is so comfortable and well-equipped! We felt right at home. It impressed us all, including family members we were visiting in Vernon. We had them over for breakfast, and the Duplo came in handy for keeping the baby entertained. We are sure you'll be having more visitors from our family now that they know about Dragonfly Cottage. Thanks for your hospitality.

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We decided to show the best of the Okanagan to our Berlin friends - 4 adults and 4 children (between the ages of 8 and 11) had the best of all times. Of course, the pool was a great distraction, but the lovely way the house was set up was just touching and so very appropriate for all interests and age groups. A lot of thought was put into the decoration, how the house was set up - very useful and very easy to discover and use. It was our home away from home, with lovely neighbours, great hikes close by, providing the just perfect vacation time. We will certainly come back!

GORGEOUS PLACE TO STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage is just lovely.....what a perfect home away from home! It is decorated so beautifully with gorgeous unique furniture and luxury bed linens. The beds are so comfortable, we had the best sleep, and lovely touch with the bath robes provided! It is maintained so well and was completely spotless! The fireplace is lovely touch, and added a great feel to the cottage and we were so warm despite it being -12 outside! It was nice on arrival to find the fire roaring and a beautiful warm house! It is well equipped for cooking and preparing meals. Our children were well catered for with plenty of toys....lego, books, board games, balls, snowshoes, toboggans.....they had so much fun! A short drive up to Silverstar and even shorter drive into Vernon, it's a great location. Fab winter holiday, but can imagine summer is just as lovely! Would highly recommend Dragonfly cottage.....Thanks so much for sharing your fab place.

PERFECT! PERFECT! PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for a better place to call home for a week while we readied and attended my son's wedding! We rented both Dragonfly and Hummingbird and it was perfect for us and my sisters family. The pictures are exactly like the home - which is rare and it was so lovely and inviting from the moment we pulled into the driveway. We were astonished with all the little extras provided and how well stocked it was with everything we may have needed. It was far enough out of town to enjoy the lush surroundings but close enough if you needed anything. We enjoyed the pool and the kids and pup loved to run in the field. We will definitely recommend this cottage to all our friends and family and look forward to coming back again!

Lovely Stay at the Dragon Fly Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 (including our chocolate lab) felt right at home at the Dragin Fly Cottage. It is beautifully decorated, well stocked and so inviting. We were so pleased with our 6 day stay and will without a doubt be staying here the next time we visit Vernon! Thank you Lisa for everything your cottage was perfect!
