Property description

Looking for peace and serenity? This gorgeous lake front home is located at the north end of Osoyoos Lake. The quiet area of the lake is a family friendly paradise for water sports and swimming! Of course, we are only minute’s away from Burrowing Owl and Black Hills Winery Estates if you like wine tasting!

In the summer, the local fruit stands and farmer's markets provide an opportunity to discover a wide variety of products including cherries, plums, peaches, apricots and nectarines. In the winter we are just 40 minutes from Mount Baldy Ski Area, and 1 ½ hours from Big White Ski Resort for all those riders that love powder snow!

The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake - private beach

Car: Recommended

This gorgeous lake front home is located at the north shore of Osoyoos Lake. The quiet area of the lake is a family friendly paradise for water sports and swimming! Of course, we are only a short drive from world class wineries including Burrowing Owl Estates Winery and Black Hills Estate Winery.

In the summer, the local fruit stands and farmer's markets provide an opportunity to discover a wide variety of products including cherries, plums, peaches, apricots and nectarines.

In the winter we are just 50 km from Mount Baldy Ski Area and 180 km from Big White Ski Resort - great for all those riders that love powder snow!

A few steps down from the property takes you along a meandering path towards the dock, or to the 500 foot white sand beach, where you can enjoy an evening beach bonfire, play volleyball, or just watch the kids play in the sand. A clubhouse is shared amongst residents and vistors to this gated community, and includes 2 outdoor pools, 2 hot tub, fitness centre and shared common room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My husband and I moved to BC from Ontario in 1996. Although we left our families behind, we were very excited to start a new life in beautiful BC. We are graduates from York U, and Western & McGill with teaching and business degrees. We drove across Canada with my pet turtle, and settled in Vancouver. Since that adventure started, we are now a family of 5 with a cat, living in Vancouver. Our family is constantly taking advantage of the great outdoors with skiing, boating, hiking and continue to discover what this province has to offer. We always encourage our out of town relatives to visit, and sure enough, when they do, they too fall in love with beautiful BC!

Why the Owner Chose Osoyoos:
During two week car journey from Ontario (1996), we drove through the Okanagan and fell in love with the landscape, and met enough kind people that left a great impression on us. We knew that one day we would buy here! This property is particularly important to us, as it symbolizes how important it is to stay connected with our families back home. We bought this property, so that when our family visits, we can stay together in one place and create memories. Our kids enjoy everything that The Cottages has to offer, and the surrounding area. We are so happy to be here, and want to share this wonderful location with our renters. It truly is a beautiful place to visit. We like to take advantage of its amazing location on Canada's warmest lake and near BC's best wineries. Its a great place for family retreats and unwinding.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The drive up towards Osoyoos is a reminder of how beautiful this gem of a place is. You'll pass the spiritual Spotted Lake, the abundant fruit stands in Keremeos, and the huge Adirondack chairs will lead you to our cute 2400 sq/ft cottage on the lake. We put care into the design and feel of our cottage. We didn't want it to show like a designer house from the city, for goodness sake, that is what we are all trying to get away from. Instead, we used personal items, to add spirit and generate feelings of comfort and relaxation. We've mixed old with new furnishings and decor, and the layout of our specific floor plan works for 2 families to share. We've kept in mind that when our families visit from Ontario all at the same time, there has to be a place for all. We have plenty of room in the basement area for a large group of kids to have a sleep over on the couches or floor (if they don't want to use their bunks upstairs). The lower large screen TV is protected from the glare of the sun, so an afternoon movie will do for all while relaxing on the large sectional. The 8'x4' pool table is sturdy solid wood with room around, on those days you feel like staying in or challenging each other all night. Upstairs is bright and airy with a fully stocked kitchen, with plenty of room to take in the views. The million dollar view will keep you gazing out the windows each moment, and you can see our boat slip and the wild horses grazing. Once you walk in through the front door, you will instantly feel comforted at the thought that the layout and furnishings are kid friendly (you don't want to stress about that), the appliances are new and the laundry machines are ready (just in case). Listen to music on the BOSE, go for a walk, visit the clubhouse or head into town. Leave the city life behind....relax, unwind and refresh your body and mind under the warmth of the sun! You will enjoy many of these magical moments with your family, and it all starts with you booking our cottag
