Vernon cottage description

'Dragonfly Cottage' is a family-oriented vacation home located in a private nine acre cottage community at the base of Silver Star Mountain. It is conveniently situated within 10 minutes of downtown Vernon, and is a pleasant 15 minute drive to the sun and powder of the ski slopes.

Our two level, 1100 square foot cottage is newly renovated and tastefully furnished, and equipped with all the comforts of home. Just bring groceries, your suitcase, and a chilled bottle of local wine, and you are set for your holiday. All of the bedrooms have new, pillow-top Serta mattresses, and high quality linens, so your sleeps will be quiet and restful.

Use the cottage as your home base to explore the beautiful Okanagan Valley. There are two parking stalls adjacent to the cottage, so bring your boat and spend your days on nearby Okanagan or Kalamalka Lake. Mountain bikers will love the thrill of taking the lift to the top of Silver Star Mountain, and exploring the trails and jumps. Bring your golf clubs and play each day at a different course--Predator Ridge, The Rise, Spallumcheen, to name a few. The trailhead for the BX Falls hike is within walking distance of the cottage. Hikers will also enjoy nearby Kalamalka, Silver Star, and Ellison Provincial Parks.

At the end of the day, enjoy a BBQ on the large sunny deck. The deck overlooks the pool, tennis, and basketball courts, as well as a large grassy green space, which is an ideal place to toss a football around, or play a game of baseball with the kids. At dusk, watch for the mother and baby deer that often graze at the edge of the forest.

Some of our most fun and magical family moments have come from our time at 'Dragonfly Cottage'. We invite you to create your own holiday memories here, while you visit the beautiful Okanagan.

If our calendar is booked for the dates you are looking for, please check our neighboring 'Hummingbird Cottage' for availability (see vrbo listing #318352). Our side-by-side cottages can be booked together to accommodate two family groups.

                          About the owner: Doug, Lisa, Sasha, and Luke--we live in Greater Vancouver.

                          Why the Owner Chose Vernon:
                          Vernon is a small town in the middle of endless recreational opportunities. We wanted a place that would allow us to indulge in our favorite winter and summer activities.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          We have busy city lives, and our cottage gives us an opportunity to have nothing but fun and relaxation. It is our place to reconnect as a family without the distractions of work and school.
