Myself, formerly a primary teacher, enjoys gardening, golfing, playing bridge, decorating & spending time with family & friends. We have three wonderful grown children and two beautiful grandchildren. Together we love to travel, get together with family & friends, cheer on our WHL Kelowna Rockets and of course spend time at 'the lake'. We love living in the Okanagan & take great pride in our 'Lakehouse' We hope that you will stay with us and enjoy all that Blue Grouse Bay & the Okanagan has to offer. Like many of our guests you'll want to keep coming back year after year.
Lynne & Dave Cousins purchased this house in 1989
We chose this two acre lakeshore property over twenty-five years ago because we wanted our children to enjoy all the wonderful experiences that come with growing up on the water. Its hard to put into words but there is something magical about the combination of children, the lake and an Okanagan summer. We loved the peaceful lakeshore setting and the close proximity to downtown. It has been a labour of love and hard work getting the property to what it is today. We built the house in 2000 and have been renting to guests since 2003. We love our lake house and enjoy sharing it with our guests, many who come back year after year.
The benefits of our rental property is the beautiful private setting with a 180 degree view of the lake and the mountains. It's like staying at your very own resort. Because we have another residence downtown and keep the main floor of the house strictly for our own use, you never need to worry about sharing the property with other renters. The suite is very bright and tastefully decorated, It is the lower level of the house which has its own private entrance and all the comforts of home. There is boat moorage for one boat and lots of parking for boat trailers which makes it perfect for those guests wanting to bring their own boat or wishing to rent a boat during their stay.
What a wonderful week!! Thank you for letting us enjoy your little piece of paradise. The kids had the time of their lives. The dock definitely got its use this week. Hope to see you again. Your hospitality was greatly appreciated. (Lana) Thank you so much for having us. We had a great holiday. Loved the dock and the water. See you again.(Collette)
We have stayed at Blue Grouse three times over the past three summers and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Dave and Lynne are wonderful, considerate hosts and always make us feel at home. The setting is ideal, nicely appointed suite, beautiful grounds and an incredible boat dock for hanging around with family and friends. You will not be disappointed !
Blue Grouse has drawn our family back for seven years! The peaceful surroundings, the stunning view and the amazing owners have welcomed us year after year. Dave and Lynne have watched our family grow up and their hospitality has become a key reason we we return. Blue Grouse has been the perfect summer vacation spot to enjoy our kids, our boat and even some friends! We absolutely love this place! <3
We spent six glorious weeks in the fall of 2014 at Blue Grouse Bay.We found it to be very quiet and peaceful
at this time of year.Afternoons were warm enough to spend sunning and reading at the dock.Morning coffee
could be enjoyed on the deck while watching the awesome sunrises and evenings brought sun diamonds on the
lake with Kelowna lights twinkling in the background.Our hosts Lynne and Dave ensured we thoroughly enjoyed
our extended stay.
Everything that you will need to make your stay comfortable is already there. We loved the big outside sitting/eating area. Dave and Lynn keep the place is pristine condition and make sure that you do not need anything. There is some fishing you can do right of the dock and lots to see and do in the vicinity. We will for sure be back as soon as we can.
Our family of four adults have spent a week here on two occasions over the past few years. Dave and Lynn are the best hosts, and have made our stays absolutely perfect. The grounds are immaculate and we particularly enjoyed the expansive covered patio with BBQ, large dock, and stocked fire pit. This unit is super clean, and all furnishings are most comfortable. The a/c and WiFi work great. You can rent boats nearby, and the city is a relatively short drive away. My son and I caught some good size fish right off the dock at early morning and sundown. If you want a relaxing and quiet holiday nearby several activities, this is the place!
Our expectations were exceeded pretty much right away after stepping onto the beautiful patio, with its even more beautiful view. We enjoyed easy access to the regions attractions including great hiking (one really lovely hike only minutes away) and more wineries than you know what to do with (ok, you probably know what to do).
For our group, which included people who love to cook, the only small negative was the minimal kitchen (no proper stove/oven and small sink). But this was mostly compensated for by the hotplates provided, and the high quality oversized bbq.
The owners are lovely considerate people, nice gestures like providing toys for our 10 month old son was certainly noticed and appreciated.
We would certainly recommend this location to others.
