Oliver chateau / country house description

Nestled high in the hills west of Oliver, the High Chaparral Guest House offers serenity and privacy amid the indigenous flora and fauna of the northernmost high desert in North America. We offer privacy and commanding views of the valley as you enjoy the serenity of our property, yet you are only 10 minutes from world-class restaurants and over 30 award winning wineries. Now that the weather is cooler, you can snuggle up and bask in the warmth of the fireplace. Beds boast cosy down duvets and 400 thread count cotton sheets.

We are an adult-only dog-friendly guest house with two private suites - each sleeping 2 adults. High Chaparral is a true getaway where you can unplug from the stresses of city life.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Your Hosts: Linda and Bruce. We have enjoyed many trips to the Okanagan over the years. We purchased our 80 acre property and moved to Oliver at the end of 2007. After 25 plus years working in the film industry in Vancouver, Linda now enjoys running the High Chaparral Guest House. Bruce continues to commute between Vancouver and Oliver working on various film projects during the week. We live in a separate residence on the acreage with our house dogs, Dunbar and Oliver and Angus the cat.

              Why the Owner Chose Oliver:
              Our setting is very private and peaceful, nestled high in the hills West of the town of Oliver. The scent of ponderosa pine and wild sage enchant the senses while the breeze whispers through the trees. Our property is home to many species of birds, including grouse, sage thrashers, bluebirds, hummingbirds, eagles, hawks and vultures. In the Spring many beautiful wild flowers cover the surrounding hills. Ancient deer paths are present throughout the acreage, still used today by our resident deer and are an easy hike for our guests. Oliver is home to world class restaurants and over 40 award winning wineries.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
              While set in privacy of the pristine wilderness - we are only 10 minutes from Main St., Oliver. From High Chaparral Guest House you can visit over 30 wineries, 2 golf courses, many hiking trails, 3 lakes. After a day of wine tasting, you can return to the guest house, prepare your dinner and enjoy some of our local wines, while taking in the spectacular sunset. High Chaparral has two private suites, each with a separate entrance. A fully equipped kitchen is available for your use at no extra cost.
