The Mac Shack is located by a grove of MacIntosh trees on a 20 acre farm in the BX area of Vernon. The cabin was first built by homesteaders back in the early 1900's and was a pickers cabin for many years when the fields around were full of Spartan trees. We completely renovated the interior of the cabin this spring so that it is fully equipped with fresh and new, well insulated and set up for a comfortable stay. We have great views overlooking the North Okanagan and Vernon, minutes away.

About Patrick or Sean Ling-Allen
Sean and I moved to my home town of Vernon, BC from Toronto, Ontario in 2015. My background is environmental management and I'm a recently turned orchardist. Sean is an artist, pilates instructor as well as the family chef and barista. We have 3 young children a dog child and love food, cycling and gardening. This year we are on our 2nd of 3 years transitioning our apple orchard to organic status, incorporating a permacultural approach to as much of the orchard and gardens as we can.

Why Patrick or Sean Ling-Allen chose Vernon
We purchased this property because it is 10 acres of flat land right beside our current orchard with some cool old homestead buildings. Its the perfect space for expanding the orchard and establishing our farm here for the next couple decades, maybe longer if the kids show an interest.
What makes this Studio unique
The trail system and nearby creek are a beautiful for a stroll, especially at sunset on the trail, or to escape the heat on a hot day by the creek and waterfall. We're next door to an equestrian centre with several friendly senior horses who are a treat to visit at the fence. The property is in a quiet country setting with a deadend gravel road yet we're just a few kms from town and central to the lakes and mountains.

Our hosts were fantastic - they provided a great place to stay and were available if we needed.
The accommodations themselves were spotless and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves.
Thanks Drew, that is what we are shooting for and it feels good to hear we nailed it. I'm really glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come again!
