About Linda Sheehy-Brownstein
Your Hosts: Linda and Bruce. We have enjoyed many trips to the Okanagan over the years. We purchased our 80 acre property and moved to Oliver at the end of 2007. After 25 plus years working in the film industry in Vancouver, Linda now enjoys running the High Chaparral Guest House. Bruce continues to commute, working on various film projects during the week. We live in a separate residence on the acreage with our house dog, Oliver.
Linda Sheehy-Brownstein purchased this Guest House in 2007
Why Linda Sheehy-Brownstein chose Oliver
High Chaparral is unique and unlike anything else offered in the area. The scent of ponderosa pine and wild sage enchant the senses while the breeze whispers through the trees. Our property is home to many species of birds, including quail, grouse, sage thrashers, bluebirds, hummingbirds, eagles, owls, hawks and vultures. In the Spring many beautiful wild flowers cover the surrounding hills. Ancient deer paths are present throughout the acreage, still used today by our resident deer and are an easy hike for our guests. Oliver is home to world class restaurants and over 40 award winning wineries. Relax while enjoying the peacefulness our 80 acre property offers - privacy is yours in a gorgeous setting. We are stewards of our land and have signed a covenant with Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship Society to maintain the wildlife habitat on our property
What makes this Guest House unique

Wonderful house in the hills with all one could possibly need.
This is a great place, very nicely situated being in the hills but still close to Oliver. The house is perfect with two wonderful suites and a well-stocked shared kitchen. A memorable stay. Many thanks!
Relaxing stay. Amazing views!
My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights. The place is very clean and was as described. It was the perfect place for us. It was close to the nearby attractions but felt secluded and private when you returned "home". Would highly recommend for those who appreciate acres of beautiful natural surroundings!
Thank you Andrea. We enjoyed having your group. We look forward to next time.
We spent 4 days here - so incredibly beautiful: starry sky at night, owls hooting, away from all the tourists (yet so close to several wineries). The accommodation was clean & well-appointed; the patio a fabulous gathering place to hang out and visit. Linda and Bruce were incredibly attentive without being intrusive. We definitely will be back!
It was a pleasure having you. We look forward to seeing you again.
Beautiful hacienda type place in the hills outside Oliver
This was a fabulous place to stay. Linda and Bruce, hosts, have put so much effort into ensuring that their guests have every comfort. The sunsets from the deck are spectacular. The place is quiet and serene yet just a ten minute car ride to the best wineries and eateries in the Okanagan. Plenty of opportunity for good biking and hiking. Highly recommend.
Thanks so much Jan - we loved meeting you and Helmut are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We will see you in September - happy trails between now and then. Thanks for leaving the place in such good nick!
Peaceful and relaxing
We loved our time at the guest house. The remote location lends itself to peaceful relaxation.
It was wonderful to sit on the patio (with a meal or drink prepared in the lovely well equipped kitchen) and relax and enjoy nature - the only sounds being the crickets and the birds. The accommodation was clean and and comfortable and well designed to fit in with the natural surroundings. Would love to go back again.
A Great Getaway
Came up in early July from Vancouver for a two night stay.
An oasis in the hills above Oliver.. Truly a magical and tranquil guest house property with the nicest of innkeepers..
The High Chaparral Guest house was the perfect place to be.. So close to great wineries and amazing restaurants ...
Early morning coffee and breakfast in a nicely appointed kitchen felt like home..
It was great coming back to the guest house at the end of a day visiting wineries in the local just a short drive away.
Just a beautifully laid out guest house in a peaceful setting, one that I'll definitely come back to again.
Highly recommend :)
