About The Owner

My husband and I moved to the Okanagan to start a business and a family. Two grown girls and 23 years later and we still love it here. Although we travel frequently we still love coming back to the cottage. It is a special and unique place. Please visit us on our website listed below for more details about our cottage.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2011

Why The Owner chose Winfield

We have enjoyed the lake with our family for many years and we finally decided that we should own a piece of it for ourselves. My husband and I happened upon these cottages just last year even though they were built 4 years earlier we didn't even know they existed. We were amazed we could have a vacation property that felt like it was a world away, yet reachable from our house in only 30 minutes. We love the fact that we can come out here and have fun on the lake with the dock and boat and still have everything we need so close by. In fact we loved our cottage so much that we bought this second cottage that we would love to share with you.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the peacefulness of the natural setting and the fact that in spite of it being a newer development they kept as much of the trees and natural landscape as possible.We have a true cottage feel while having a beautiful upscale living space. We have enjoyed exploring the trails and are still amazed by the clarity and calmness of the water here. As the Okanagan keeps gaining in popularity it also keeps gaining in the ultra tourism resorts. We really don't care for the big resort atmosphere where tourists are sold a packaged view of the Okanagan. We love the fact that while staying at our cottage you feel like you have a private piece of the lake away from the hoards of people. You can truly kick back and relax and still enjoy all the valley has to offer with out being taken advantage of by the mega resorts. A great perk that we love is reclining in the soaker tub in the master bedroom while you enjoy a 180 degree view of Okanagan lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's been amazing to witness the quiet serenity of the cottage. It is with anticipation we wake every morning to the diverse and magnificent views of the lake.

Lovely cottage on the lake!

  • 5 of 5
My family had a wonderful stay at this cottage. We were thoroughly impressed with the thoughtful details that made this cottage into a home away from home. The cottage was well-appointed and beyond food items, we had everything we needed. It was a wonderful place with stunning views to get away from the hustle and bustle.

One caution though, the cottage is located down a very windy road that is a good 30 minutes out of Kelowna. Do what you can to bring along everything you will need during your stay. As well, the beach area is quite rocky and condensed and the steps down to the beach area are very steep.

Owner's Response: As I often rent properties from VRBO when I travel, I try to include all the amenities that I know I would appreciate in a rental property. A high level of cleanliness along with some unexpected extras is always important. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Charming Escape

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this charming lakeside cottage, with Tara providing excellent tips and organizational details to make our time in Kelowna as carefree as possible. Of all the VRBO's that I have shared, Tara's thoughtful touches ~ personal welcome note, wine and local treats along with the clear instructions for everything you need to know ~ are now my gold standard.

The pictures accurately capture the charm of this special place, which during this time of year was more quiet than I would imagine than the summer when the other cottages and lake activities are in full swing. I can see why the quiet hours (11pm-7am) would be needed as the cottages are very close to one another and we could easily hear the next door neighbor's music. For family or friend reunions where a few cabins would be needed, Secret Point would be ideal.

I would highlight a few things to consider to make sure this is the right place for your Canadian adventure:
1) 25 min drive from Kelowna. This is a windy road which seems even longer at night, so if your trip is primarily designed for exploring the region's wineries, hiking, biking, and enjoying BC restaurants, then you may want to consider a place closer to those areas and spend less time driving. If you want to enjoy the Lake and focus on activities at the cottage and nearby, then this place is great.
2) 2nd upstairs bedroom. This small room has a window (near the ceiling), yet it is not able to be opened so the room can feel a bit claustrophobic. We had lovely cool, fall temperatures at night, yet in the summer, this may be an issue. The Stewart's do have fans readily available, so it may not be an issue.
3) Stairs. If you have issues with stairs, this place would be challenging as there are steep stairs from the parking lot, down to the lake, and to the bedrooms.
4) Timing. Depending on your interests, I suggest Sept as an ideal time to visit this region if you want to not have the summer crowds, yet still be able to have services (like bike rentals near Myra Canyon) and particular winery tours (like ice wine), which were closed by mid-October.

Overall, we had a wonderful time here and I would book anything that Tara was involved with!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much. It is our goal to make sure the cottage is exactly as it is described and pictured here. I'm glad my suggestions helped you plan a great holiday. You had wonderful suggestions and yes I agree with you, September is personally my favourite time of year out at the lake. Hope to have you back soon.

Fantastic Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
Quite simply the place is amazing. Beautiful cottage, amazing scenery, and very clean. Great place for those who like to be far enough away from the city to enjoy the quiet outdoors but still close enough to enjoy everything kelowna has to offer. Bonus of great information from the owner on what to do and where to go, especially when it comes to restaurants.

Owner's Response: So happy you two enjoyed your stay and glad the restaurant guide I made was useful to you. It took me a while to compose the list based on my experience over the years. I love recommending places that we locals know about but get overlooked by visitors. Please come back again soon.

Excellent boating vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed at the Secret Point cottage for one lovely week. There was plenty of sleeping room for everyone, with the boys in the bunk room, our daughter in her own room and a nice master bedroom for my husband and I. The cottage was well equipped with all supplies, including kitchen supplies, board games, and beach toys. Having our own boat lift is a must for us, and we love boating on this part of the Okanagan Lake which is relatively quiet even on a hot summer day. My only reservation would be for anyone for has difficulty with using alot of stairs, which was not an issue for us.

Stay at the cottage

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful, well kept, cozy cottage with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the peace and quiet of the place. We also thought the multiple landings were neat going down to the water. The weather did not cooperate with us the duration of our stay... actually the nicest day seemed to be the day we left so we did not get to enjoy all of what the place had to offer but we would definitely return if we go back to Kelowna. Thank you for thinking of everything!

While staying at the cottage most people enjoy hiking to Fintry Park waterfall or Bear Creek canyon. There are many of Canada's top wineries just 20 minutes away. If you didn't bring a boat you can rent at Lake Okanagan Marina just 5 minutes away. There is also zip lining and paint ball close by and even an 8 screen movie theatre if you get a rainy day.
