Property description

This barnhouse vacation rental was transformed from a real-live working barn to a bright and modern 'country' cottage. It is now a cozy 2 bedroom cottage complete with all amenities for your 'home away from home' comforts. In the summer it is shaded by mature maple trees that offer reprieve from the midsummer heat. You can see farm animals grazing nearby during the day, catch a glimpse of the natural wildlife at dawn or dusk, or watch the twinkling lights of the city below at night. The Barn House at A Bit of Country is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation in a quiet natural country setting only 10 minutes from town.

We are close to Silver Star Mountain Resort for the avid downhill skiers and even closer to Sovereign Lake for cross-country skiers. In the summer, Kal Lake and Okanagan Lake are only 15 minutes away by car plus there are lots of golfing opportunities nearby and hiking trails just behind our property. It is a pet friendly accommodation with wi-fi and lots of amenities.

Our property is situated on five acres of semi-wooded hillside just east of the city of Vernon in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, with beautiful views and close to skiing, lakes, and several Okanagan activities.

Experience our quiet country-residential setting. Breathe the fresh country air, listen to the chirping of birds, watch horses grazing, or catch a glimpse of deer, quail or pheasants quietly going by. Take in Vernon's panoramic rural landscape by day and it's soft twinkling lights in the distance by night.

For those who enjoy hiking, just behind us are trails that lead up to Vernon Mountain. You will be rewarded with spectacular vistas of valleys, lakes and gentle rolling hills. You will appreciate being away from the traffic, noise and the hustle and bustle of city life. All this peace...and just ten minutes from town.
