The Knox Mountain Carriage House is a clean, bright and airy one bedroom suite. Situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, the location is a relaxing low-key retreat that is amongst nature while minutes away from the amenities a tourist-friendly city provides.
The carriage house is newly built and was designed for maximum light, open floorplan, and socializing. It has French doors opening off the kitchen area for a view of Knox Mountain and a gentle breeze. The east facing balcony is a great place to enjoy breakfast and listen to the quiet of birds and crickets chirping, marmots peeping and the smell of fresh cool morning air. The kitchen is fully equipped so you can prepare your own meals if you choose. The washer/dryer makes extended stays convenient and for evenings in, you can rent movies through the video on demand. It sleeps 4 with hide-a-bed and is perfect for a small family or couple.
The location is tucked away in one of the best-kept residential secrets of Kelowna because it is a 3 minute drive to the shops in downtown Kelowna, the cultural district, the Grand casino, fantastic restaurants, wildlife viewing areas and a 4-kilometer lake promenade, yet with all this, Okanagan Lake is a short 1.5 blocks down the street, with grassy Sutherland Park perfect for picnics with its mature canopy of elm and willow trees, a boat launch for motorized boats, a kayak/canoe launch, a 9 hole frisbee golf course, and tennis courts. Just across the street is Knox Mountain Park, which has 282 hectares of walking/hiking/biking trails. A short drive to the top of the mountain takes you to viewpoint pavillions with breathtaking views of Okanagan Lake.
A 20 minute drive will bring you to the Kettle Valley Railway trails, a historic area great for mountain biking or walking across high trestles and through tunnels.
The Knox carriage house is 2 blocks from Okanagan lake and Sutherland Park, which has 5 acres of grassy lakefront park perfect for sunbathing, soccer, or a picnic. Sutherland Park also includes a children's playground, a boat launch, and public washroom facilities.
1 block from the Knox carriage house is a 9-hole frisbee golf course located in 'The Enchanted Grove' and 2 public tennis courts.
Across the street from the Knox carriage house is the starting point of 282 hectares of walking/hiking/mountain biking trails on Knox Mountain, leading to spectacular viewpoints of Okanagan Lake.
