          Jewel Lake is nestled in a mountains valley. In summer, the nights are cool and the days are warm. Your days can be full of activity or serene and restful.

          The lake is plentifully stocked with hungry rainbow and brook trout. The resident loons will serenade you as you canoe, kayak, or quietly motor on the lake.

          The local trails provide a variety of hikes. For bike enthusiasts, local lake trails connect to the Kettle Valley Railway Trail. Your bike trip can end in GrandForks at the Station Pub - especially if you have pick-up driver to take you back to Jewel Lake.

          Nearby Greenwood offers two great bakery/coffee shops, antique shops, and a good restaurant - the Pacific Grill.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: The four owners, all siblings, have spent a life-time of summers enjoying all that Jewel Lake has to offer. One of the owners lives on the property a distance from the rental home. We are all committed to ensuring that your vacation brings you as much pleasure as we have enjoyed these many years.

          Why the Owner Chose Grand Forks:
          Our home and this estate were passed down to us from our Aunty Win. Throughout the house, you will see pictures of her, her dogs, and tributes to her beloved Jewel Lake. Aunty Win loved the lake's tranquility - as does all the family. Younger members of our family love the activity provided - hiking, swimming, cycling, bird watching, boating. The size of the home and property make it the perfect place for multiple generations to come together and enjoy the many treasures offered here.

          The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
          While you will appreciate 'being away from it all' on this very private property on Jewel Lake, a short distance away is the Christina Lake Golf Course, antique shops, restaurants, exquisite coffee shops/bakeries, and museums. You can take a sightseeing trip into the US, crossing at Midway only 20 min. down the road. We also like to plan a trip into Osoyoos (1.5 hr. west) to visit some of the best wineries in BC.
