Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly loved our time. The cabin was gorgeous and our hosts did everything they could to make us feel at home. It was such a relaxing location, with a stunning view of the hills and vineyards. Would definitely return! Thanks you so very much.

A Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My true love and I stayed here for several nights in November. We were swept away by the tranquility of the cabin which was perfectly nestled in a bird sanctuary with beautiful mountains in the backdrop. When we arrived there were several cows wading in the creek in front of the cabin. Our dog quickly took the water, the cows weren't even disturbed and we knew this was going to be a great weekend. There was great hospitality from Ticker and Elaine; we enjoyed their presence around the homestead but never felt intruded upon. In the evenings we cooked our meals on the open fire-pit, ate at the little bistro table on the patio and drank wine by the fire - yes, in November! We took long walks along the bird sanctuary and were always very happy to return back to the cabin where we were extremely comfortable and homey. The furnishings were beautiful and the bed was very comfortable with nice linens. The cabin also had a fully stocked kitchen. We wouldn't hesitate to come back here again!

Paradise in a bird sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most amazing romantic getaway locations I've ever experienced. To start with, the location is spectacular. It's tucked into a bird sanctuary with views of the surrounding mountains and Burrowing Owl winery. It's situated on the back of the property up against a stream so it is secluded and private. We went for a run up to the winery and ran through the grape vines one morning. The cabin itself is incredible. It's a beautiful, rustic log cabin with all of the comforts you'd find in a high-end hotel. The decor is tasteful, the kitchen is well stocked, and the bed is super comfortable. One of my favourite parts of staying here was bird watching with the binoculars out the large picture window. The host and hostess are incredibly friendly and accommodating. The icing on the cake was the cutest chocolate lab who loves everyone. I'd like to keep this place as our little secret, but it was too nice not to share.

Perfect romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have travelled extensively around the world and we can honestly say that this is one of the most idyllic spots we have ever stayed in! The cabin is beautifully presented inside and out, a wonderful blend of rustic charm and luxurious creature comforts such as the excellent coffee machine. Private and relaxing, it is set in beautiful grounds on the edge of a wildlife reserve. We loved sitting around the camp fire at night listening to the chorus of frogs, and waking in the morning to the sound of hundreds of birds. The Owl's Nest is a fantastic base for exploring the local wineries -- Burrowing Owl is only a 10 min walk, for example -- but we were equally happy to sit on the porch for hours, sipping wine, playing board games, watching the wildlife (binoculars provided!) and just admiring the breathtaking scenery. Elaine and Ticker are the most gracious, welcoming hosts and have thought of absolutely everything to ensure guests enjoy their stay. (Ticker's home made elk sausage is delicious with a glass of the local red wine!) Thank you both -- we have already booked our return visit and hope it is one of many more! Luisa & Chris

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, we so look forward to your next stay, and sharing a glass of red with some of Ticker's sausage.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful cabin over the last weekend and before we left we re-booked to spend our anniversary here in Sept. The location, the decor, the thought care and attention lavished on this property by its owners Elaine and Ticker was a pleasure to behold. We are very picky in choosing hotels, B&Bs etc and this incredible property and its loving owners exceeded our already high expectations. The natural surroundings, the wildlife, proximity to vineyards and restaurants make for a winning formula. Can't wait to return!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We came upon the Owls Nest Cottage when we were on a day wine tasting trip in the South Okanagan and what a wonderful time we had. The setting is absoutely beautiful with the river in the back and all the birds and wildlife, and the cabin, just super, quaint but also modern, the fire pit an added good time with Ticker, Elaine and Ember after our dinner out. Ticker and Elain are so hospitable and wonderful and Ember just a loving doll even though my Zoe tried to be the boss. This was just a fantastic experience and our day perfect. Thank you Ticker and Elaine, we will definately be back! Billy, Candy and Zoe
