Lake Country House Rental Photos and Description

Lake House on walk-out Lake front

For the USA traveler...It should be noted that all quotes are in Canadian dollars. VRBO does not convert to the American dollar.. Exclusive VIP Lake shore Home is situated on Okanagan Lake. It overlooks the valley mountains orchards and vineyards...This pristine environment is located between the charming village of Okanagan Center and prestigious Carr's landing. The home is on 3 levels,over 3800 sq ft and in a very private lush setting. It captures an AMAZING and a totally unobstructed 180 degrees view of the lake. The home is situated to take advantage of the South west exposure allowing you to enjoy the evening sun on the dock, or partake in the many water-sports. You will be able to catch the calm water in the morning to the brilliant sunsets at night. This location afford the best the Okanagan has to offer with Kelowna International Airport 15 minutes away but yet has a lovely rural and country setting. It is only a 5 min drive to the town of Lake Country where you will find all amenities such as restaurants groceries, liquor stores, pharmacies, and other daily needs. The resort city of Kelowna, 25 minutes to the south, boasts fabulous restaurants, shops and entertainment. Opportunities for recreation abound. There are half a dozen world class golf resorts in the Kelowna area, of which two, 'Predator Ridge' & 'Quail Ridge' are within 15 minutes of the home. Take a tour of 5 star 'Sparkling Hills Resort' famous for it's Swarovski Crystal and holistic theme spas. There are three clean fresh water lakes in the area, Okanagan, Wood and Kalamalka. All feature swimming, beaches, boating, water sports, sailing & fishing. If fishing is your choice of relaxation we are within 15 minutes drive to Beaver Lake Lodge and a chain of smaller fishing lakes. Hiking is right out your back door where you can hike up to the top of Spioncop Mountain and overlook the stunning landscape of the valley and 3 lakes.

The WINTER months offers the amazing opportunity to ski/board and explore 2 world class mountain. Only a 45 minute to either ski resorts. 'Big White Mountain' (voted best family mountain) and 'Silverstar Mountain' i( all year around playground for mountain bike trails and great ski terrain.) Known for the champagne snow it will keep you coming back .

A short drive into Kelowna opens up days of exploring vineyards and wine tasting possibilities. Get to know what BC wines are famous for!!!

It is an easy morning stroll to explore the walking trails of the area and lunch at the museum in the quaint village of Okanagan Center and learn the history of the settlers.

We have everything to offer for your pleasure and enjoyment and make it the perfect family vacation. The experience will be what often is referred to by a local... as the 'The OKanagan Life style!.! Perfect location to enjoy wine festival or hike the abundance trails around the area or take well earned winter retreat to ski the champagne snow in the local mountains...We have it all!

"This property is not a good fit with young adults, who are coming to the valley to enjoy late rambunctious evenings with their friends. This is a family neighborhood and since we also live here, we simply can not have traffic coming and going, or very loud social activity beyond 11 pm."

We are always open to Home exchange!

WINE FESTIVALS

The Annual Okanagan Fall Wine Festival is an experience for all who love fabulous wine accompanied by great food and unique events. Autumn in Okanagan Wine Country is the perfect time to watch the grapes ripen in the sun and indulge yourself in the harvest celebrations. This is the only wine festival in North America that takes place during the heart of grape harvest.

During this festival, experience vineyard tours, lunches, dinners, events and the fall wine harvest – there is no better way to visit Okanagan wine country. For ten days in early October enjoy over 165 events throughout the valley which are focused on wine, food, education and the arts in one of North America’s most spectacular settings – the Okanagan Valley. This festival continues to be ranked in the top 100 events by the American Bus Association.

The Okanagan Spring Wine Festival is a perfect marriage of wine and culinary tourism. For the first ten days in May each year, it offers a tantalizing experience for anyone who loves fabulous wine accompanied by fine cuisine. And what better way to announce the grape growing season than to hold a Festival during bud break!

About Denise

We have raised our family in this beautiful rural location on Okanagan Lake. It is a private piece of paradise that in one of the most beautiful bay on Okanagan Lake. We originally purchased a small family run resort with 7 cabins and had the privilege of teaching and enjoying with our 3 children the Okanagan Lifestyle. Our children have grown up and fled the nest... so we look forward the sharing this unique opportunity with other families.

Denise purchased this house in 1999

Why Denise chose Okanagan Valley

Beautiful home and gorgeous views.

We enjoyed our annual girl's reunion, the home is lovely and setting beyond words. We plan on returning again for our get together the first weekend in June of 2017, it totally works for us. Hopefully we will have a warmer weekend so we can enjoy the great outdoors. It was grand.

Owner's Response: Hello, yes I apologize again for the the hot tub not in working condition. It was an unforeseeable chain of events that we tried to rectify, but it happen on a Friday over the weekend and we could not get a technician out until the beginning of the week. The problem has since be repaired and we have a fully operational clean and sparkling hot tub. I am so happy for you that the weather was beautiful during your stay and that you could enjoy the dock and the outdoors. You were fantastic guests and left the house immaculate.. I really appreciate the respect and condition you left the house. Thank You. cheers Denise

Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic family vacation!! Brian and Denise have a beautiful property - the house, the backyard and the dock were all well taken care of. Most rental locations are run down & have few supplies. Not their house! The house was beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you could ask for. Top of the line kitchen, BBQ, outdoor seating & hot tub just to mention a few. Definitely the best vacation rental/property we have rented. Brian and Denise are helpful, reasonable and very accommodating. We definitely recommend this property! Thank you for everything!

Amazing!

Brian and Denise was courteous enough to have us at their home. It is very private and quiet. The dock is perfect for social gathering and getting your sun tan on. Thank you again Brian and Denise for having us!
