About Jan O'Flaherty
Hi we are Jan & Dan O'Flaherty. We have lived in beautiful Christine Lake since 1999. We own and operate a Vacation Rental business here, so we know what it takes to provide a comfortable well equipped vacation property.
Jan O'Flaherty purchased this Cottage in 2009
Why Jan O'Flaherty chose Christina Lake
Jan's family has had a cabin at Christina Lake for over 40 years and so she spent many summers here enjoying the warm water and good family times. It was these great memories that eventually brought her and Dan back to the lake.
What makes this Cottage unique
There is nothing nicer than waking up in the morning to the sound of nature all around. The sun rises over the mountains to the east and shines across the lake while you enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the lake front deck. You can enjoy the day at your our own private beach front and dock or spend the day on the lake. When the stars light up the sky at night you may enjoy the hot tub.

Loved the cottage, hot tub was perfect. Absolutely lovely stay.
Our stay was amazing. The cottage was very comfortable, clean and well stocked.
We were able to enjoy time inside with the cozy heater as well as time in the hot tub.
The location on the lake was beautiful as well as being able to access various hikes which were close by.
Owners were great to deal with.
Fully enjoyed our stay!!
Our recent visit to Cedar shores
The cabin inside was good. Very clean. Heater worked fine.
Hot tub worked good.
The outside yard needed a spring clean up. Some trimming and weed control. The bouy to tie up the boat was missing with broken rope. Barbeque worked good. Everything was fine and made for a great stay. Cabin being built next door. One issue is that the builders burnt their refuse down on the lake and we had to close our windows on the south side. Sincerely Blair
I know that this is your second stay at Cedar Shores Cottage and we appreciate that you enjoyed the cottage enough to return for a second vacation, for 2 weeks this time. We are sorry about the building going on next door when you stayed this year. The neighbouring home is completed outside now and is lovely with only landscaping to do. I hope that having your daughter stay at the cabin for free at least partly made up for the inconvenience.
I am also sorry that you felt the outside needed more attention. Because the cottage is nestled in trees, the outside cleanup is constant and continuous. Every time the wind blows a cleanup is needed and in June when you stayed this time, the plants were growing very fast. A spring cleanup was certainly done but we would have been happy to trim the outside plants, clear the debris and repairing the boat moorage during your stay. Most guests prefer to have privacy at the cottage during their stay but if there is something needed or a yard cleaning done, a request would have been appreciated and we would have taken care of things right away. We hope that helps for next time as we do hope your family comes back and we will check the property more frequently.
Thanks again for staying at Cedar Shores Cottage!
Well equipped lakeside cottage
We had a great week staying at Cedar Shores. We enjoyed the dock, swimming and hot tub. A great place to relax, and enjoy family time.
We spent a week here in August and can't say enough nice things about this cottage. It is well stocked, very nicely maintained and the location on the lake could not be better. Owners and caretakers were great. This is the perfect vacation spot for anyone who enjoys the lake - fishing, boating, swimming or just sitting on the dock relaxing. There was 4 of us (2 adults and 2 kids) and there would easily have been enough room (including privacy) for 2 more. Would absolutely come back.
Relaxing and memorable
We enjoyed our stay at Christina Lake at a beautiful cottage by the lake. The cottage is in great condition and e had fun cooking for ourselves and relaxing in a hot-tub after a game of golf.
Cedar Shores Cottage is located on the shores of beautiful Christina Lake, the warmest tree lined lake in British Columbia. Located in southern central BC only 5 minutes drive from the US border and about 1/2 way between Vancouver and Calgary, Christina Lake is a favorite spot for meeting with family from various parts of BC and Alberta.
From the Okanogan it is a short 2.5 to 3 hour drive making Christina Lake a perfect weekend getaway year round.
The lake offers beautiful swimming, and is renowned for many water sports including water skiing, wake boarding and surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding to name a few.
Christina Lake is located right on the Trans Canada bike trail and Kettle Valley railway trails, perfect for the whole family. The more expert mountain bikers will be challenged by the local mountain biking trails.
The local Granby and Kettle rivers provide lots of tubing fun in July and August.
In the winter, Christina Lake is less than an hours drive from 2 great downhill ski areas, Red Resorts to the east and Phoenix Mountain to the west. There are also some wonderful cross country ski trails nearby, the closest being the Paulson Cross Country Trails only 20 minutes drive away, Blackjack trails, 50 minutes away and Phoenix cross country trails about 45 minutes away.
Enjoy the lovely town of Grand Forks BC with it's home town feel. There are some great little shops, various restaurants and coffee shops, plus 3 grocery stores to choose from. From June through September there is a terrific farmers and crafters market with local musical entertainment.
