Overview

Highway 97 Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedroom, 2 bathroom (Sleeps 9)

Check in time is 4 pm and checkout time is 10 am. This is a charming farmhouse fully equipped to move in. It has a separate dining room, large living room with satellite tv, wifi and blue ray player. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor and 2 bedrooms up. Both bathrooms are located on the main floor. All bedrooms have a queen size bed and one bedroom also has a futon that folds down for added people. The house will work well for up to 9 people. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking meals and dishes are provided. The deck is large and has a gazebo to save you from the hot sun while allowing you to enjoy the breeze and relax outside. There is a washer and dryer downstairs in the home.

Our property has many fruit trees, fruit bushes etc and when we have enough, we will make them available to you. We do ask that you don't let your children pick fruit and throw it, nor have anyone pick without checking with us first. Please don't climb the fruit trees as it damages them, and don't let your children chase our free range hens around as they quit laying when distressed. This has become quite a big problem for us with the past few rentals and we don't know why it happens. We are a working farm and are grateful if you can make sure that all of your guests treat our property well.

We are a WWOOF host family. That is World Wide Organization of Organic Farmers. Young people from around the world come and volunteer their time on the farm to learn about Canada and farming. It is always interesting to talk to the young people who travel here. The property has a few fruit trees and we are surrounded by orchards. We have recently planted 4 acres of blueberry bushes on our lower field. We have 3 dogs and 2 cats and are very pet friendly. We can give you great directions for a nice walk in the area or even a hike for the more physically inclined.

In a separate and fully self-contained suite we have a full-time tenant who is quiet and respectful of the visitors upstairs and we appreciate it if others leave her space calm for her. You will have exclusive access to the vacation rental, your own deck and green space and will not have to share it with anyone.

This is a fantastic home to enjoy family visits and reunions, nature time, days spent on nearby beaches and peace and quiet in a rural setting. It is NOT a home for loud and boisterous late night party crowds. We try to maintain quiet time from 10 pm- 7 am. Families traveling with children need to be aware that there is a downstairs tenant and sometimes kids are pretty loud. We thank you for your consideration.

About Carmen Johnston

Hi, My name is Brett and I live in a separate house on the property with my wife Carmen. We have a home based business selling kitchen cabinets and also grow 4 acres of blueberries in addition to having a large organic vegetable garden in the summer. I have travelled extensively and I love the Okanagan. Carmen used to be an LPN and now works on the farm with me. She loves dogs and works hard to keep the rental up to date with everything you could need on your vacation. With easy access to lakes, golf courses, ski hills and wineries it is truly a great place to live.

Carmen Johnston purchased this farmhouse in 2004

Why Carmen Johnston chose Kelowna

Come and enjoy the freedom of farm life and the peace and quiet it offers you. The house itself is inviting and homey. Both of us spent our teenage years in the Okanagan so for us it felt like coming home when we had the chance to purchase the property. The vacation rental is home to many of Carmen's mother and grandmothers treasured items which you will see in the china cabinet. Unfortunately, our home is made of too many windows to have them here, so we trust that you will look after them with care while you are here.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Ample parking, quiet rural location. The deck is fantastic to enjoy bbq's and sunny afternoons. The arched doorways in the home are lovely and the wooden floor is original and shows the character of the home. We love the antique glass door knobs on the old wooden doors. The beds are so comfortable you will want to stay in them and read your book through the mornings. It isn't often that families can go somewhere peaceful anymore with most hotels and apartments having lots of noise from neighbours so we hope that you will make the most of it and enjoy the quiet life that we enjoy daily! Being only a 15 minute drive to the beach is pretty spectacular also!

quaint and perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family (parents, brother, husband and 3 girls and I) all stayed at this lovely property and were so in love from the moment we arrived. The place was absolutely perfect and provided adequate space for us all to sleep and socialize. The yard was awesome for running around in, the play set was well used by our girls, the kitchen had everything basic that we needed for preparing our meals and a huge dining room table that fit our entire family (including my other brother, his wife and little boy). It truly became our home away from home instantly. It was quiet, close to the airport so we had fun watching the airplanes, and away from the chaos of Kelowna, but close enough that we didn't have to drive terribly long to get anywhere! We definitely will not hesitate to rent this property again in the future and I already look forward to it! The owners were awesome and prompt with any questions or concerns we had and and great to deal with. Just watch out for the corners of the bed frames! They sneak out and catch your shin if you're not careful ;) lol

Very Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights and spent more time at the house than we expected. With the deck and a BBQ along with plenty of house space it was great for what we wanted. If you golf the location is a big plus. Also Carmen walked the talk as to what they offer and what you get

Great Accomodation in Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this Farmhouse and the family there.

We were travelling as a family group - 6 adults and 1 dog :)

The house was clean, quiet and pet friendly too!

Several living areas that were quite spacious, so we were not all on top of each other all the time which is a bonus.

Carmen is a great communicator pre trip and a lovely lady in person as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and would return in a heart beat.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with this property. Clean, beautiful, quiet, and spacious. We were especially happy to be able to bring our 4 dogs with us and allow them to romp in the fenced yard! We will definitely stay here again when we return to Kelowna.
