About Ann Skelcher

The four owners, all siblings, have spent a life-time of summers enjoying all that Jewel Lake has to offer. One of the owners lives on the property a distance from the rental home. We are all committed to ensuring that your vacation brings you as much pleasure as we have enjoyed these many years.

Ann Skelcher purchased this estate in 2000

Why Ann Skelcher chose Christina Lake

Our home and this estate were passed down to us from our Aunty Win. Throughout the house, you will see pictures of her, her dogs, and tributes to her beloved Jewel Lake. Aunty Win loved the lake's tranquility - as does all the family. Younger members of our family love the activity provided - hiking, swimming, cycling, bird watching, boating. The size of the home and property make it the perfect place for multiple generations to come together and enjoy the many treasures offered here.

What makes this estate unique

While you will appreciate 'being away from it all' on this very private property on Jewel Lake, a short distance away is the Christina Lake Golf Course, antique shops, restaurants, exquisite coffee shops/bakeries, and museums. You can take a sightseeing trip into the US, crossing at Midway only 20 min. down the road. We also like to plan a trip into Osoyoos (1.5 hr. west) to visit some of the best wineries in BC.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Unpacked and immediately made food for the hummingbird feeders. We've enjoyed watching them all week. This is our third stay here and "Win's" home is really a treasure. We value every minute of just relaxing, we appreciate every comfort that is available just for guests and fromm Wayne's perspective the ease of pulling his boat right up to the dock and jumping in at any time to go out fishing! Ann & Dan - Thank you seems to be enough…THANK YOU for sharing this unique home!

Tranquility and Bliss

  • 5 of 5
Kingfisher Cover is a wonderful property hidden in the woods on the shore of Jewel Lake, a magical, natural, beautiful lake 1 hr from the US/Canada WA border (HW 395). The loon call will enchant you, the non motor-boat peaceful lake will hook you. Swim, eat, enjoy. The lake is never the same - always changing like a living being. The property is well equipped, you can feel the history and loving, fun times which took place there. It is very secluded. Thank you Ann for sharing your home with us. E&D

Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Although pictures and reviews seemed great at booking, the entire experience was even better than expected, from property to lake front to the owner who is very helpful. We took our dog that loves the water and he had the time of his life chasing squirrels on land and loons on the water. Lake water is pristine and crystal clear. Excellent star gazing at night.
Tip: bring bbq/cooking supplies, everything from salt and oil to steaks and wine etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful description of Jewel Lake and our rental property. It's great to know that everyone - even the dog - had a great time!! Thank you too, for the traveler's tip. It's true that other than salt and pepper, there are no condiments (or wine :-) at the house. We want to ensure that there is no past date items left for others that could cause health concerns. There is limited food shopping nearby so we suggest you bring everything with you. Besides, once you get there you'll never want to leave to go shopping! Right, Arnav?

A gorgeous spot!

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay at this lovely house. Jewel Lake is a quiet and incredibly scenic lake and the house is large and very comfortable...fabulous evenings spent on the balcony overlooking the lake or down at the dock. There is loads of room too! We rented canoes, swam off the dock and enjoyed visiting the nearby historic towns. The owners are very kind and thoughtful too. Thanks so much for a truly lovely stay!

Lots of room to spread out.

  • 5 of 5
The owner was great to work with. She was very prompt to answer any of my inquiries and it was wonderful to find a pet-friendly cottage. This was the first time my two year-old sheppard/ black lab cross has experienced nature this close and she truly enjoyed her holiday too. My four teenagers appreciated having their own rooms, while I enjoyed using the beautiful well-equipped upstairs kitchen. The great room upstairs had lots of cozy chairs and couches for reading and playing music. The piano, though dreadfully out of tune, was a pleasant surprise for the musicians in the family. I found a music book in the extensive library and had fun playing some "oldies" on the old upright.

The downstairs kitchen was perfect for kenneling our dog and storing our beach and fishing gear. We used the open area downstairs for board games in the evenings of the hotter days.The spacious house stayed surprisingly cool despite the 30-37 degree weather. We caught a couple of trout off the dock and made s'mores by the lake. The owners of nearby Jewel Lake fishing resort were super friendly and rented us some kayaks for a day. My husband and sons explored the mountain bike trails and rode most of the way to Midway along the Trans-Canada trail. We also visited the museums and restaurants in Greenwood and Grand Forks and made a day trip to sunny Osoyoos. It was a very full week and we would like to return to explore some more.

The house was even better then we were expecting. We wanted for nothing, it had all of the comforts of our own home. It is well maintained and exceptionally clean. Dealing with the owner was a pleasant experience, she quickly replies to e-mails and answered any of our questions. Although we had a little rain there was enough in the two nearby small towns to keep us entertained for an afternoon.
If possible we would of given this vacation 6 stars For anyone reading this review, we truly believe you would never regret choosing this home.

Jewel Lake is nestled in a mountains valley. In summer, the nights are cool and the days are warm. Your days can be full of activity or serene and restful.

The lake is plentifully stocked with hungry rainbow and brook trout. The resident loons will serenade you as you canoe, kayak, or quietly motor on the lake.

The local trails provide a variety of hikes. For bike enthusiasts, local lake trails connect to the Kettle Valley Railway Trail. Your bike trip can end in GrandForks at the Station Pub - especially if you have pick-up driver to take you back to Jewel Lake.

Nearby Greenwood offers two great bakery/coffee shops, antique shops, and a good restaurant - the Pacific Grill.
