About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10)

Better than a cottage stay, as it has all the conveniences, and also a very quiet country like setting, overlooking a farm valley to Okanagan Lake and 35 km to Terrace Mtn beyond. There are houses only on one side if the street and a cul-de-sac at the end, so there is little traffic to content with. There are walking trails and a park handy to relax nearby.

You're in the city, with everything handy, but it feels like the country. Clients have loved this concept.

Perfect for a long weekend stay, or up to 1 month.

4 bedroom, executive home, with 4 Queen Sized beds, 1 full single bed, a chaise Lounge, sleeps 10 adults.

Level entry, comfy, quiet, beautiful views, well featured.

Extra wide eaves designed to shade the upstairs during summer, but allow sun in during winter.

Nature: With cleared orchard land below, and the Turtle Mtn ridge in front, there are many deer, and smaller animals like marmots and lots of bird life including hawks and eagles.

This year even a porcupine waddles around the area!

Hiking trails are minutes away.

Okanagan Lake, and further Terrace Mtn (35kms) complete uninterrupted views.

About Dave Weatherill

Joanne & Dave love to travel too, and appreciate welcoming accomodations, so we have kept that in mind as we have developed our own executive vacation rental home. We started from scratch in 1984, own and operate Briteland Holdings Ltd.. We are very involved in our community, especially in Rotary.

We love sports and like to take advantage of all that our area has to offer.

Vernon is a year round sports paradise,

with world class facilities really handy.

Dave Weatherill purchased this house in 2008

Why Dave Weatherill chose Vernon

We like to build things, businesses, lives and homes. We are keen about our environment and ecology, and have incorporated many energy efficient features into our Jemma Homes.

Turtle Mountain is a unique and new development in Vernon. It is a classy area of town, and really handy to all the amenities, including sports, shopping, entertainment and dining.

What makes this house unique

The open concept, on both floors, allows for great family and guest visiting time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave and Joanne, We enjoyed our stay in your house on Turtle Mountain in Vernon. The view was absolutely spectacular with every morning waking up to 12 to 15 deer in our backyard. The house was beautiful also, very comfortable and very well equipped. We were able to host a dinner party for 12 for our family in BC with no problem. We would highly recommend this rental home.

Excellent weekend in an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

From the outset this place was jaw dropping, amazing views combined with a fully functional exceptional home located on Turtle Mtn. The proprietors was extremely professional, always available and very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this property. My group had the best time we could have hoped for! Would definitely come back again!

A gorgeous house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures truly do not do they house justice. We were on vacation in Vernon with a group of adults and this house was perfect for our group. The view was incredible, the house was clean, very comfortable and super spacious; even with 10 adults we never felt crowded. The kitchen was fantastic, between that and the BBQ group meals were easy to accomodate. It was the perfect rental, better than we could have hoped for.

Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for our family travelling in from New Zealand and Toronto for a wedding in Vernon. Communication with the owners was quick and easy. The house was exactly what we required, the views were great, and the accommodation extremely comfortable. We were very happy living and entertaining in this house, everything was modern and well appointed. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend anyone renting this property. The whole area was easily accessible to town and the wedding venue. We wish we could have stayed longer. We loved watching the deer from the balcony, and enjoyed the climb up Turtle Mountain. Thanks very much for making our stay so memorable.

Great House & Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights at the house and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our party of 6 comfortably spread ourselves out and there was actually a spare bedroom unoccupied. The house had enough beds and sofas to probably sleep 8-10 people depending on how many couples, children and singles there are. The house was well designed and had modern, quality appliances and electronics including a home entertainment system (iPod friendly) & big screen TV & gas BBQ. There were plenty of pots & pans, cooking utensils, dishes and appliances.The only appliance lacking was a coffee grinder which we picked up at the local Wal Mart. Everything in Vernon is closeby so the location of the house in a new sub division (Turtle Mountain) 5-10 minutes from downtown Vernon was fine. We had a beautiful view from the wrap around balcony and the place was quiet. I thoroughly recommend the home for family gatherings or a large group of people wanting to enjoy Vernon & the surroundings.
