The Quail’s Cottage Guest House is home away from home. Situated behind the owner’s house, this romantic little hideaway is private and peaceful and a little bit of heaven. Quail’s Cottage is a fully equipped 1 bedroom poolside suite. Approximately 600 square feet and tastefully decorated throughout, enjoy sleeping in the beautiful pillow top queen size bed with views of the pool and the backside mountain. The living room is furnished with comfort in mind including cozy snuggle blankets, electric fireplace, candles and soft lighting. The delightful bright kitchen is fully equipped with everything you require including a blender for your special poolside beverages, a popcorn popper, rice cooker and even a waffle iron for special pampering mornings. The 3 piece bathroom is small, bright and cheerful. A private laundry room is included with iron/ironing board, complimentary detergent and fabric softener.
Just imagine sitting poolside in the morning with cozy complimentary robes and coffee. You may catch a glimpse of the local family of deer coming down the side of the mountain, or the many mother quails and their babies scampering across the property. Quail’s Cottage is the perfect getaway for couples who are looking for a resort like setting with complete privacy. Spend your days lounging by the pool in La Fuma gravity chairs or venture out and about to the many wineries, golf courses, restaurants and shops.
Please be aware that on the property there are two resident Goldendoodles (Golden Retriever/Poodle mix dogs) on duty. They will greet you upon arrival with the most entertaining wiggles you will ever see and they make friends very quickly with their lovable personalities.
Beside the main house, there is a large Vermont gas barbeque available for your use. Available to you as well are pool floating loungers and your suite is supplied with large beach towels for pool use or to take out and about when you’re enjoying the nearby lake or other fun activities. Make sure to load up on protective suntan lotions as Kelowna can be very hot and sunny during the summer months.

Owners, Dan and Mary are long time Kelowna residents. We have lived in Kelowna for 19 years and love the area! The Okanagan Valley has plenty to offer with many championship golf courses, wineries, lakes, ski hills and fabulous scenery. There's something to do in all our seasons. After a long work day or play day we enjoy sitting poolside with a glass of wine admiring our mountain view and the quiet peacefulness of our private backyard. As Dorothy said 'There's no place like home' and we promise to make you feel right at home as well.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 1994
Centrally located this property is close to the Kelowna Airport, Orchard Park Mall, numerous golf courses, popular restaurants and just minutes from the Downtown Cultural District. For many years our friends and family have been staying in our poolside Quail's Cottage Guest House and enjoying every moment of it. We have decided to open the home to new guests so they may experience the beautiful Okanagan.
Our location is wonderful! We are situated on a very large lot at the base of a mountain in residential Glenmore and only minutes from Downtown. A very private and resort like setting awaits you.

After all your relaxing and exercising,, enjoy the best sleep you've had in a long time.
We recently stayed in Quail's Cottage for 3 nights. The pictures on the vrbo website do not do the property justice! The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and very comfortable! The kitchen is very well appointed and had everything we needed to make meals. The pool is huge and the backyard is very private. The weather was sunny and hot and the pool was a welcome oasis after a visiting some wineries. Mary and Dan could not have been more gracious hosts. We enjoyed sitting around the pool with them drinking margaritas one afternoon and their two golden doodles, Spencer and Sophie, only add to the vacation experience. We had take-out from their restaurant one night - great ginger fried beef and butter chicken! Mary made the entire reservation process extremely easy and responded very quickly to my inquiry and questions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Quail's Cottage to friends and relatives. We can't wait to return! Thanks Mary and Dan for making our visit to Kelowna so memorable!!
My husband and I enjoyed a 3 night stay at the cottage and we could not have asked for better accomodations or hosts. Mary and Dan were very warm and welcoming to us and our Labradoodle... it felt as though we were visiting friends we had just met! The cottage is super clean and equipped with everything you could need for your stay. We were able to cook full breakfasts & dinners in the large kitchen, and we also made use of the barbecue. The pool and fenced backyard are truly an oasis (for both people and pets!), especially during the hot Kelowna summer. It was nice to be able to chat and visit with the hosts, but we never felt like they intruded on our privacy. Special thanks to Dan for the cherries and to Mary for just being so wonderful! We will definitely be staying again.
The impeccably clean pool house cottage with beautiful décor was a delightful urban oasis. It was furnished with every possible necessity we needed to make our stay comfortable. Our goldendoodle made herself right at home immediately and had fun with Mary and Dan's playful goldendoodles. We wined and dined both inside and poolside while enjoying the beautiful weather, quiet backyard and pool. Mary and Dan were fun, gracious hosts making us feel right at home....so much so we have already rebooked for next year.
We enjoyed our 3 week stay in Quail's Cottage. This private self-contained suite has everything you need for a relaxing visit. Our hosts were willing sources of information, and welcoming of our wee dog. We were exuberantly greeted by their charming dogs and appreciated the enclosed backyard. Although we were too late in the year for the pool, we did enjoy the ambience of the cabana table for a glass of wine. This is a good location if you want to hike the hills, but you will need to drive for provisions. We enjoyed the stay so much, we have already booked a Spring visit.
We found a gem when we found Quail's Cottage!!! It had everything we needed to make our stay so great! Mary worked hard to have the place immaculate when we arrived and was great with offering any advice we needed on the area! The location is great, close enough to walk downtown, but also in a quiet neighbourhood and out of the downtown traffic.
Everything in the suite is perfect, from the comfy queen bed, to a PVR if we wanted it, and the washer and dryer which also came in handy. We spent a few days just lounging by the beautiful pool and many evenings enjoying a nice meal and glass of wine on the deck, a few of those night enjoying a glass or two of wine with Mary and Dan.
Mary and Dan were wonderful, and treated us like family during our stay. The 2 doodles, Sophie and Spencer are just lovely dogs, we had a lot of fun with Sophie and her ball, too bad Spencer was recovering from surgery as he would have loved to play lots as well. Our dog, Charlie, just loved it there!! He made himself at home, and sometimes too comfortable finding his way into the owners house to lick out their dogs bowls. Mary was good about it, and learned to keep the patio door closed, but Charlie still tried!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone, as it is a perfect place for a get-away! We knew it was going to be nice from the photos before we went, but truly fell in love with it when we were there! We had a wonderful vacation, and Quail's Cottage helped that! And it was so nice to vacation with our dog!
We also had take-out from their restaurant and it was fabulous....best ginger beef we've ever had!!
It was hard to leave, I had tears on our last day, but we will be back next year!!! I know all 3 of us are looking forward to it!! Thanks Mary, Dan, Spencer and Sophie for making our stay so wonderful!!!
When I first viewed the Quail’s Cottage website it looked like a cozy retreat that stood out from other listings. I was thrilled to find that it exceeded my expectations. I was traveling with my six year old goldendoodle, and the enthusiastic reception we received from Mary, Dan and their doodles, Spencer and Sophie couldn’t have been more personable.
All of the dogs played well together in the wonderful, fenced and safe backyard. They also enjoyed some pool time thanks to Mary’s easy-going nature allowing my doodle to roam and swim to her heart’s content.
Both Mary and Dan were eager to offer advice on what to do in the area and had a knack for being able to focus on my interests rather than overwhelm me with too much information. The perfect balance.
The cottage is immaculate and very well equipped with a lot of attention to detail. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend it to friends.
