BEAUTIFUL VERNON COTTAGE

Vernon Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

'Hummingbird 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, 1000 square foot cottage is completely 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 is ample parking at 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 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. 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 'Dragonfly Cottage' for availability (see vrbo listing #251554). Our side-by-side cottages can be booked together to accommodate large family groups.

About Joy

I live in the same cottage community as my rental property.

Joy purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Joy chose Vernon

I have semi-retired to the Vernon area, and love the recreational activities the area affords.

What makes this cottage unique

The property is perfectly located for my needs. It is far enough from town to make me feel I am in the peace and quiet of the country, yet I am a 10 minute drive from the amenities of Vernon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Family reunion = A wonderful time in a wonderful place. Love the ambiance! Everything we needed - before we even knew we needed it. Many Thanks!

Slice of heaven

This lovely cottage a few minutes from the heart of Vernon is a treasure. The lush meadows are peaceful and soothing but the pool and tennis courts are a welcome addition if you have kids. There's so much to do here in summer that it's hard to choose. But make sure you build in time just to sit on the deck with a glass of wine and breathe deeply. We will most certainly return.

We stayed at Joy's Cottage over the Easter long weekend with our 3 Mini Schnauzers. When we arrived their were 3 easter treats for them which was not expected and a wonderful surprise !!!! and they loved them! We had good friends join us for a full on Easter dinner that we cooked. The Kitchen had all that we needed to cook dinner and then some! VRBO owners in Vernon should take heed as this property is AMAZING!!!!

Absolutely perfect in every way!!

We love the Hummingbird Cottage! It is fully equipped, beautiful and very clean! When we arrive it is always like coming 'home' and our children aged 9 and 13 are always excited to explore the outdoors. The beds are incredibly comfortable with bedding that gives you a cozy sleep. We will definitely be back again and have loved every stay we have had here.

Humming Bird Cottage

  • 5 of 5
I loved staying at the Humming Bird Cottage!!! We were there as a family of 8 and had an amazing time. When I realized I was going to sleep on the Hide-a-Bed in the living room I was thinking that it would not be comfortable as that had been my experience in the past but it was very comfortable! So much so, that I am going shopping to find the exact couch.
Very cozy cottage!!!!

Hummingbird Ski Week

  • 5 of 5
We are three fifty something skiers that rented the cottage for a week and found the cottage ideally located in a small quaint cottage enclave not far off Silver Star Road. What we appreciated most was the three separate rooms and comfortable beds that kept snoring disturbances to a minimum. We had expressed an interest in Okanagan wines to Joy in advance and were pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of Valley Wine "Black Sage Cabernet Merlot" upon our arrival. Highly recommended for those wine aficionados out there seeking to take a wine tour.

The cottage is fully equiped and we even enjoyed use of the crock pot with the satisfaction that a hardy meal would be ready upon returning from a full day of skiing. The Sochi Olympics on tv with the gas fire place blazing in the background was an additional bonus during our stay. Would do it again!!

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5
I would absolutely recommend this property. Not only did the property come with everything one could imagine [e.g. shopping bags, DVD/movies; fireplace; balcony; all kinds of dishes/pots for cooking including an outdoor BBQ, etc.] but there were also numerous personal touches. The cabin was immaculate and very nicely furnished/decorated. The owner was fantastic, especially with respect to everything meeting our needs.
