About Jodie Graham

I'm from Vancouver & my wife is from Denmark. We live, work and raise our two wonderful children in the Main Street / Mt. Pleasant area of Vancouver.

Jodie Graham purchased this house in 2012

Why Jodie Graham chose British Columbia

After 7 years of searching in the Okanagan, Whistler, Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island for a second home where we could decompress, rejuvenate and make life-long family memories, we stumbled across Naramata Village. The minute we drove into this little lakeside community, we knew this was the sanctuary we had been searching for. Shortly thereafter, this lovely home appeared... and the rest is history!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this particular home- not for any one reason (other than it's in The Village) but for the entire property as a whole. As soon as we walked through the front gate we were greeted by a gorgeous cherry tree that was loaded with ripe cherries (it took us a while to get inside, they were so amazing). At the same time, both our children ran to the play structure and started climbing, swinging and sliding (they had no interest in going inside). Once we made our way through the front door and into the open living/dining/kitchen area, we knew we had found our vacation home. We love that there are three bedrooms on the main level with two bathrooms (one being a master ensuite) and the other having a deep soaker tub. With 2 bedrooms and another bathroom downstairs, we decided to make one room a guest-room to accommodate couples and the other into a bunk-room. The added bonus downstairs is the large rec room where everyone can hang out and watch a movie on Netflix or have a foosball tournament.

Comfortable, well-appointed home base for exploring the Naramata Bench.

  • 5 of 5

"Girls" Weekend Getaway House. We rented this lovely house in the Naramata Village as a home base for our 50th birthday weekend activities - wine tasting, hiking, hanging out. Eight of of us stayed very comfortably. Here are some reviews:

"The house is inviting from the minute you walk it, this is your home away from home. The kitchen is well stocked with all your baking essentials needed to cook. All bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. I would recommend this house to families with small children to weekend get away with friends."

"It was a lovely home, lots of books to read along with magazines and pamphlets about the area and places to visit. A well stocked kitchen with coffee, tea, spices etc. Very clean, comfortable and cozy. It was great for a large group, lots of room and a large living room to sit and socialize. Although we didn't use the deck and yard it looks like that would be nice to enjoy in the warmer weather."

"I was more than impressed with the rental, so clean, a ton of room considering there were 8 of us sharing. What I truly appreciated was how well stocked they were from the kitchen to games/books/pillows/blankets. The master bedroom/en suite were phenomenal. Extremely comfortable bed, duvet and pillows! I could only imagine during summer weather how enjoyable the yard would have been as well."

""I found this rental to be VERY accommodating and comfortable. I am hoping to come up with my family in the future. I would highly recommend this rental."

Great stay with the family pre- & post-wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage with both sets of parents in lead up to our wedding on Naramata, as well as to unwind for a couple days after the event. It was very spacious and well located in a quiet part of town. We had great weather and enjoyed spending our time on the back porch, but were happy to escape the heat at times in the cool air conditioned home. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others!

Delightful with a splash of charm

  • 5 of 5

The Family Cottage was our home for 4 days, and it was exactly that, "home away from home". The location set the stage and the home completed our experience. The home is very clean and well equipped with everything a family (with younger to older kids) to groups of friends/family will need.

I would recommend "the Family Cottage" to everyone.

Thank you Jodie for sharing your wonderful home to my friend and I.

Cheers!!

A perfect stay for our group of 6

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 6 women visiting Naramata for some wine touring. The house is very spacious and welcoming with everything you need. After a day of touring it was so nice to sit out on the deck and enjoy the evening. The kitchen has everything you need for making meals. Our only suggestion would be that the master ensuite could do with a remodel and the landscaping is getting a little overgrown but that aside, it was a perfect stay for all of us and we were already talking about coming back next year.

Excellent stay at Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jodie's family cottage over Easter Weekend. The house is better than advertised. Very comfortable home. Quiet location in what I would think was part of the "Original" Naramata. Close to Therapy and Lang wineries. Two of the best in my opinion.

We did not have small children with us but if you do there is lots to keep them occupied. Very close to the lake.

You will not be disappointed. HIGHLY recommended. Would not hesitate to stay there again.
