About Don Schnitzler

We, Don and Sandra, are a family with 4 children currently splitting our time between Alberta and BC.

Don Schnitzler purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Don Schnitzler chose Okanagan Valley

We have been coming to Kelowna since we were small kids. We love the orchards, wineries, scenery, Lakes and especially the beautiful hot summer weather. In 2006 we took a 1/2 hour drive north of Kelowna down this curvy road and discovered Lacasa. The Resort has made significant improvements over the years and just keeps getting better each year.

What makes this cottage unique

We were very fortunate to have had an opportunity to buy a very limited Lakefront property. The unobstructed views and privacy is a rarity that amust be seen. With a view like this we had to increase both decks and add some extra touches. Now you can still enjoy the views outdoors even if it rains with the covered patio and fireplace.

Two Kayaks are also available for stays of 1-week or longer.

Awesome view! Peaceful & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome cottage with stunning views of Lake Okanagan. Nice and clean cottage with spectacular views of the lake from multiple windows and 2 very nice sized decks (with no obstructions). The owners Don & Sandra were very pleasant and accommodating-hassle free. Absolute pleasure to deal with them. Will most definitely deal with them again and stay here when back in the Kelowna area.

Terrific Lake Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 8 days in this super cottage. We really wanted a quiet retreat where we could relax and enjoy the lake and that is exactly the way it worked out. We expected that September would to be an ideal time for a retreat as it is normally less busy but the weather is still pretty good. We were not disappointed. In fact we were thrilled with the peaceful environment, inspiring views and the homey comfort of a modern and well equipped cottage. We had everything we might need and really enjoyed the outdoor space with 2 good sized decks and a special covered nook where we spent lot of time enjoying the faux fireplace and I could even follow my Blue Jays on the outdoor TV. We had 2 guests visit us from Ontario that were so taken with the experience we thought they might not leave. Don was a very congenial host, welcoming us and ensuring our comfort. He quickly replaced the switch on the faux fireplace when we noticed it wasn't working properly. This is a top notch property with some of the best views in the whole resort. My wife called the experience romantic, so I know for sure it was the best choice we could have made. The only thing that could have made our stay better would have been to make it longer.

Perfect family vacation; beautiful cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this cottage for our first family vacation after having a baby in the fall. It was the perfect getaway! The cottage was beautiful! We spent most of our time on the large deck enjoying the amazing views of the lake. We had a couple rainy days during our stay and were still able to enjoy them outside in the covered area of the deck. We thought the cottage was in a perfect location. There are no cottages below so we had perfect unobstructed panoramic views of the lake. We walked down to the lake every morning which was a quick 3-5 minute walk, and would go to the pool area most afternoons which was a 10 minute walk or a quick 1-2 minute drive. It was nice and quiet; we found our two weeks there very relaxing, so much so we plan on making this an annual trip. Don was great and called as soon as we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks for a great vacation!

Unobstructed amazing views of the lake

  • 5 of 5

We picked this cottage because of the amazing views promised on the website. They did not disappoint. You enjoy a sweeping view of the lake and the most amazing sunrises each day. The deck is private and we really enjoyed the covered part to watch tv in the evenings. I posted the view photo on facebook and got so many positive comments from everyone!

So glad we made the trip, fantastice lakeview property with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We visited this beautiful Lakeview Property in mid June. What a perfect spot for a relaxing break. One member of the family was taking care of a broken color bone and hence we almost missed out on this gem, however the visit fit the bill for relaxation and getting back in touch with nature. The home was fantastic, clean, (really clean), and was well appointed. The deck with fireplace and TV allowed us to watch Netflix and watch the evening take over from the daytime views. Quite and peaceful on both of the two decks, our little dog was never inside always looking for something to see. The new restauraunt opens June 28th and talking to the new owners it sounds like another wonderful additions to a fantastic resort. Lake, pool, wildlife, boating, bird watching and serenity what more can one ask for on vacation. Oh yes really friendly neighbours more than happy to stop and chat and offer advice on where to go in the area. Many thanks for a fantastic break, we shall be back again for sure.
