Okanagan Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom 1 bath with the most amazing views of the lake and mountains.

Welcome to Vaseux Lake Cottage, this is the ultimate in cottage living in the South Okanagan. Come and enjoy the tranquility of the non-motorized boat lake. Perfect for swimming, canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking and fabulous trout fishing. This 2 bed 1 bath cedar cottage sits 20 ft. from the lake. Meander down the steps to your own private sandy beach with a deck that is perfect for lounging. The home has large sliding glass doors in the open plan living, dining area and master bedroom which lead out to the deck. What a perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee, relax in the evening with friends and family. On those cool evenings cozy up to the wonderful wood burning stove. This makes for a very romantic get away!

This area has so much to offer ......The Californian Big Horn Sheep make their home across the road.

Fall is WINEFEST, the Cottage is right in the middle of World class wineries. Come to where you can taste their wine but also dine. We are so fortunate to be surrounded by these Fabulous resturants.

Numerous outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, water sports right out the front door. There is a bird santuary at the north end of the lake with walking trails. Great place to watch the Eagles and Osprey fish. This is a photograghers dream.

We are pet friendly so bring your special family member. The yard and beach are not secure to leave your dog unattended. There is no extra charge for your pets but it is greatly appreciated if you clean up both inside and outside after them.

The Cottage is available for long term WINTER RENTAL. The Rates are $1,500 per month PLUS Utiliteies. [ Hydo and Cable] October - March.

Since starting my first VRBO property in 2012 'The Yellow House', #384862 I have really enjoyed meeting my guest and now friends. I looked for quite a while until I found this cottage, it was in need of some love and attention. I purchased this property the end of April 2014 with the purpose to make it a great vacation destination. With some great help and hard work we gave her a 'makeover' but still keeping the cottage charm. This is a wonderful place to come to spend your holidays. Now is the time to book.....

Please look at my other VRBO listing #384862 'Yellow House' in Penticton as this will give you an idea of what to expect! I throughly enjoyed turning this neglected home into a great place for my guests to enjoy.

Note : When you are looking at the RATES and request a quote PLEASE make sure you have it set on CANADAIN FUNDS. There seems to be a confusion with US FUNDS.

The cleaning fee of $125.00 represents an average clean. I really appreciate it when guests treat the property as if it is your own. Excessive cleaning will result in an additional charge.

Relaxing Easter Weekend at Vaseux Lake

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place! The cottage was clean and well equipped. The location is great for exploring the surrounding area, winery tours, hiking, bird watching and relaxing. The wood stove was cozy, it worked well and provided a nice ambiance.

Annette was delightful to deal with and very responsive to any questions we had. Thank you Annette for being such a gracious host and for sharing your home with us and our beloved dog.

Relaxing week by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our two dogs had a very enjoyable week at the cottage. Annette has made the cottage feel very homey and we were very comfortably ensconced within an hour of arriving! Dogs loved swimming in the lake (weather prevented us from partaking) and we all enjoyed the new wood stove! Location is fabulous for touring wineries, visiting the KVR, biking or just doing nothing! Cottage is well stocked, bed was great, view was amazing! Thank you Annette for sharing this little piece of paradise!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two dogs stayed at this property for 1 week in June. The location is ideal for wine tours and for just staying put and enjoying the lake. We hope to be back to enjoy the location again.

Peaceful, relaxing, and very cozy!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three fabulous nights at the Vaseaux Lake cottage. We had an amazing time and would recommend highly to those wanting a quiet lake front getaway. Some of the highlights for us included daily swimming in the clean warm lake, and sipping wine on the deck listening to the many birds. The bed is very comfortable, the cottage very clean, well supplied and central to several wineries and the finest ice cream stand. An added bonus, Annette graciously welcomed our four legged family member who spent countless hours rescuing her ball from the water during the day and sleeping deeply at night.

Serene lakeside getaway

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent 5 days at this lovely lakeside cottage. The views were spectacular as stated and the photos of the place were just a depicted. Annette was very helpful and made herself available should we need anything.The cottage was clean and spacious. We went hiking and biking and visited several of the nearby wineries. We had two fabulous meals, one at Liquidity Bistro and the other at Terafina (Hester Creek Winery). Would definitely come back again.

Fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just left the cottage this morning after a fantastic experience. The cottage is perfectly situated on a lovely lake, near wineries and orchards. The cottage itself is super comfortable and well-appointed. We felt right at home, and appreciated Annette's winery recommendations and the bottle of wine she left for us to enjoy. I really can't say enough about how great our experience was - I would absolutely recommend this spot and we hope to be back!
