This is a property to return to: quiet location, yet perfect access to both Winfield and Oyama and of course Vernon and Kelowna; the view is spectacular, the accommodation very clean, spacious and comfortable with an added bonus of a bakery next door! Thank you Brenda and Edward for creating a peaceful atmosphere with such attention to detail. My sister and I had a wonderful time. Don't be surprised if you see me (and my family) next summer! Blessings.

Quiet by the lake

This is a great place to do a little or to do a lot. It is close to all the tourist site if that is your wish but if you are a book reading type you will be pleased with the setting. Grapewood is on the east side of Woods Lake so is no noise from Highway 97. Brenda and Edward are a good source of local history and can give you directions to whatever. First rate stay, better than any hotel or resort.

Great Place to Stay for Work or Play
Great Place to Stay for Work or Play
I was looking for a place to stay that was close to my work but was a comfortable location to stay with a view of the lake and close to amenities. Grapewood was all that and more. My week's stay was both convenient and exciting. The accommodation was bright and airy with plenty of room and an amazing view of Woods Lake. Ed and Brenda made my stay very enjoyable and interesting. The courtyard behind the residence was very private and perfect for BBQing with a Black Walnut grove which bordered their vineyard. Very beautiful. One evening was spent with owners learning about the vines and even trying my hand at pruning some of them. A local bakery next door completed the circle with a vast array of desserts and baked goods. The neighbours were very friendly and welcoming. A truly wonderful place that I would return to. Thank you so much.

Clean, new, comfortable accommodation. Layout was excellent for 2 couples - suites separated by kitchen and living room. Quiet air conditioning but windows also allowed for breeze. We easily drove to numerous wineries, Kelowna and Vernon then returned to this quiet rural setting. Edward and Brenda were friendly and helpful hosts.

My husband, our two teenaged sons and myself stayed at Grapewood Guesthouse during our visit to the BC interior. Our hosts, Brenda and Edward were welcoming and helpful. The view from the property overlooking the lakes and nearby orchards is lovely and the kitchen is well stocked for eating in. Hiking, cycling, wine and cherries. We enjoyed it all. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this guesthouse to our friends and family.

This well-appointed country house is very private, and quiet - a great location for relaxing and as a base for sight-seeing and wine touring. The house is newly built and tastefully furnished - a very comfortable stay. The view overlooking Wood Lake is excellent, and the proximity (next door) to Oyama Sunblush Bakery is an added plus - home baked bread, pies, cookies and cinnamon buns just steps away. We enjoyed visiting the Lake Country wineries as well as others in the Kelowna area, and had fantastic lunches at Gray Monk and Cedar Creek.The owners, Brenda and Ed are very helpful and friendly - I would definitely visit again.

Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: Ed and Brenda purchased this property in 1991. We were apple orchardists until 2010 when we decided to take a different track and replant to grapes/vineyard. We thoroughly enjoy living in Oyama. It is a rural lifestyle, with great neighbors all around.
Why the Owner Chose Oyama:
Oyama has so much to offer. We have heard many times from our visitors how much they enjoy the beauty of the Oyama area. It seemed natural to create a vacation rental to continue to share this great place with others. In 2006 we began the process of constructing our guesthouse. It has been a pleasure and a challenge to think of all the amenities that we would like to offer our guests. We want each guest to enjoy their stay to the maximum.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The choices are plenty at Grapewood Guesthouse. Beaches, hiking trails, shopping, tennis courts, boat rentals etc. are all nearby. Or, relaxing with a cool beverage on the shaded private patio on a hot day might just be your style.
