About tom humphrey

Leila & Tom have lived internationally for many years including Cameroon, England, California and Thailand. This is our vacation property.

tom humphrey purchased this cabin in 1999

Why tom humphrey chose Vernon

Very relaxing & comfortable home with all-new appliances. Eagles, osprey, hummers, ducks, deer, and quail are regular visitors to this property depending on season.

What makes this cabin unique

It is apparent that this house was designed by an architect who studied under Frank Lloyd Wright- many unique built-in features, a 65' wall of granite, with e-glass lofted 15' ceiling and wonderful natural light down middle of home. A wall of windows on lake-view side. A 36' dock with kayak rack and mooring buoy is suitable for all kinds of boating activities.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful property, what you see is what you get! This part of Okanagan Lake is fairly quiet, but still close (15 min. drive) to Vernon and shops. Tom the owner was very responsive and helpful, no problems whatsoever with payment, etc. Also, Dennis and Karen the neighbours who live next door were delightful -- very hospitable and helpful, while also respecting our privacy. We rented a boat for a couple days, and enjoyed lots of time swimming off the dock or sitting on the patio watching the lake. We'll be back!

Perfct week

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for 8 days while visiting family in the Okanagan. Overall it was an excellent experience, good value for the cost, and we would highly recommended it.

The location is spectacular. We spent most early mornings and late evenings sitting on the patio looking out over the lake. Since we are from Ontario, the chance to sit out at dusk in July with no mosquitos was glorious.

The dock and waterfront were adeqhaate for keeping and lauching our canoe and motor launch. The brand new dock was easy to access either from the water or from our boats. The property came equipped with two high quality kayaks, paddles, lifejackets, and safety kits, and were were able to make good use of them.

The building it very attractive and fully equiped. The kitchen appliances are new and the utensils and cooking gear more than sufficient.

The beds were clean and comfortable, with clean bedding and towels provided.

The caretaking staff, who live next door, were exceptionally friendly and could not do enough to help us and make our stay as carefree as possible.

It is a short drive into the city of Vernon and food shopping and places for dinner out were quite adequate.

The steps down the the waterfronts - over 50 of them - are steep and rugged and may pose a problem for the elderly or those whose best days of fitness are well behind them. But otherwise they were not a problem.

This property is ideal for one or two couples, or a couple and one or two children (who would have to share a double bed). In our case, a couple and a grandson.

We encountered no hassles at all in making the reatal reservation and transacting payment. The listing description and photos accurately portrayed the property.

Overall, just a great place.
