WINTER BOOKING SPECIAL: Welcome breakfast basket of coffee, bread, jams made from fruit grown on our property, and more.

Relax and enjoy stunning wrap-around lake views from the deck, the verandah or the west-facing private hot tub at this charming century home surrounded by orchards and vineyards! Fabulous biking just three minutes away - suitable for recreational cyclists and avid bike buffs alike.

In summer, savour fresh cherries from two of Naramata's oldest cherry trees, right in your front yard. Grapes and plums abound in late summer and fall. Kids will enjoy the swings under the large shade trees. This home's tranquil setting offers loads of privacy while being only minutes away from anything you might need! Our home is approximately 2400 square feet on two levels, situated on a mature landscaped quarter acre lot. Hedges, trees, and the agricultural surroundings ensure a cosy retreat for you and your guests!

Located in the heart of the Naramata bench, you are never far from a winery. Check out the Okanagan Wine Festival - there is one for every season! We can help you make arrangements for wine tours and tastings. Tour any of the two dozen wineries, and sip a new favourite on the deck while watching the sun set across Lake Okanagan. Sample regional cuisine at local restaurants, or just unwind with meals prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen or the handy gas barbecue.

This home is ideal for a large group, or two families vacationing together. There are three bedrooms on the main floor, sleeping six: two rooms have a queen-size bed, and one has two twin beds which can be combined into a king. Upstairs are one bedroom with a queen, and a large Master bedroom with a king size bed. Another room beside the Master contains a single bed and a large closet. There is a common room for hanging out on each floor, as well as a full bathroom (each recently renovated). Enjoy your privacy, then come together for meals on the deck or at the family-size dining room table that can seat 12!

The village of Naramata is a nice walk or a short drive away, bringing you to Manitou Beach for swimming, or take your own boat out onto the lake via the public boat launch. Hikers and cyclists will enjoy the nearby Kettle Valley Railway trail complete with trestles, and spectacular scenery - just 3 minutes away! More rugged terrain is also right there for your pleasure.

About The Owner

We enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially when good food and wine are involved! We like to soak in beautiful views, which Canada has in abundance. We've lived in central and eastern Canada, have called Alberta home for over 10 years, and spend as much time in the Okanagan Valley of BC as we can. Hiking, skiing, cycling - it's all good! Then just having quiet times with books and movies by the fire.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose British Columbia

After spending several summers in Naramata, we really wanted a place of our own. 970 Boothe Road is a unique place. The original part of the house is a farmhouse from around 1920; many additions were made over the following decades, with the last addition in 1996 putting the second story onto the house. The rural setting - apple orchard, peach trees and vineyards all around - coupled with the mature landscaping including trees and hedges, make our home a serene, secluded piece of heaven. The two cherry trees are very old and very large: too large to put your arms around the trunk! They produce an abundance of cherries in June/July. We also have currants and a bountiful Italian prune plum tree that has delicious fruit in late August or so. The deck arbour is shaded by a venerable table grape vine which produces from mid-summer to October! There's nothing like stepping out the kitchen door and cutting a bunch of grapes to snack on.

What makes this house unique

Our home has a very zen vibe to it. We feel very content and at peace there. The views are fantastic. There are loads of spots to sit by yourself or enjoy the company of others. You're just a short walk, ride or drive to anything you might want or need: a stroll/bike on the KVR Trail; swimming, paddleboarding or kayaking on the lake; wine tasting at any of the 2 dozen wineries. You're just 15 minutes to Penticton for shopping. In summer, enjoy a lazy tube ride down the channel; in winter, you're just 1 hour to Apex for downhill skiing or Nickel for cross-country. Air Canada and WestJet both fly into Penticton airport.

Great place for a family Christmas gathering!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot to host a family Christmas gathering.......the home is cozy, comfortable and very well equipped! The bed linens are top notch and there are lots of towels available for a bigger crew. We loved the views, the hot tub and the overall ambience! The manager Tony was helpful and accommodating. We highly recommend the Loves' home and plan to be back.

Beautiful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend getaway at this comfortable, beautiful and well appointed home. We were five couples and the setup of this home was perfect. Five large luxurious bedrooms. Walking distance to the Rock Oven restaurant or the Naramata Pub. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing meals and the dining room easily fit 10. We all enjoyed our evenings sitting on the large front porch sipping wine and socializing. Coffee in the mornings on the back deck with the breath taking view of orchards and the lake was so peaceful. The real treat was enjoying the grapes from the overloaded vines trailing the deck trellis for breakfast and happy hour :) Wineries are abundant in the area (many with fantastic restaurants) and there are plenty of tour companies available to pick you up at your door step and shuttle your group around for the day at very reasonable prices. Great weekend!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at the Loves' residence. I find the home's location to be ideal for those who, like us, enjoy biking in Naramata: you can walk to or bike to the beach, if you don't mind a steep but short uphill coming back, KVR is also within biking distance (going up to it on Arawana road is quite a steep uphill, but hey, going home you cruise downhill). Despite proximity to the beach, the house is high enough that you can enjoy amazing lake views at sunset from the patio and from the bedroom windows. Being close to the Manitou beach made it very convenient for us, because we were vacationing with kids, and the kids could (and did) just spend entire days there. Since the house was so close, we could just stay at the beach until very late, and could either drive or bike there.

The house itself is well designed for groups. Most of the space is wisely used for bedrooms (there are 6!), and it is possible to close off the downstairs portion of the house with a door leading into the dining room, so that one group or family is separated from another and has extra privacy. There are two patios, one with a grapevine terrace, and another one in the garden. The garden has swings, grassy areas and is surrounded by a small fence -- ideal for families with children, because children can play there without the danger of running into the road.

Beyond that, the house has good supplies and is otherwise very nice and convenient. Communication with the owners was prompt and efficient. Christine and Tony, the people who clean and manage the property were wonderful, responsive, kind and understanding.

I highly recommend this house.

Perfect vacation at Naramata!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed in Okanagan area many times but this year we made a new discovery!

Naramata – is the place where my Italy vacation dream came true!

Our stay was AMAZING! The house is very cozy and has unique character. There was place for everyone – adults, kids and Dog!

As a gardener I immediately fell in love with yard full of greenery and old fruit trees.

And a view from the deck covered with grapevines is to DIE FOR!

We did it all – we swam, ate, drank vine, hiked, kayaked, picked fruits, relaxed and had many good laughs in a company of old friends!

Did I mention salad dressing from freshly juiced grapes - courtesy of Tony The Manager!!

Thank you Love’s family! Thank you Naramata!

Perfect location in every way

  • 5 of 5

Spent an amazing weekend at the Love's beautiful home! We were 8 people and it definitely accommodated us very easily. Tons of indoor and outdoor space, in such a convenient location close to the lake, the village, the vineyards. The huge kitchen and dining area was perfect for family meals and gatherings. The only downside is that we wished we stayed a few days longer!

Naramata Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great weekend at the Love's gorgeous home. Tony the property manager was great, he popped by and was very friendly and funny too! Lots of room for family and friends to sleep and all eat together which was a BIG bonus! We hardly left the back porch because of the stunning views and large patio table that we fit 11 of us around. The rooms were beautiful, the beds comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked and functional, what more could you need?! Wineries were close by and the area was lovely for an evening stroll. Oh and did I mention the hot tub with view of the lake and stars?! I would definitely return.
