Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: 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 between Vancouver and Oliver working on various film projects during the week. We live in a separate residence on the acreage with our house dog, Oliver.

Why the Owner Chose Oliver, BC, Canada:
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

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
While set in privacy of the pristine wilderness - we are only 10 minutes from Main St., Oliver. From High Chaparral Guest House you can visit over 30 wineries, 3 golf courses, many hiking/biking trails, 3 lakes, award winning restaurants, bicycle rental or horseback riding. After a day of wine tasting, you can return to the guest house, prepare your dinner and enjoy some of our local wines, while taking in the spectacular sunset on our wrap around deck. High Chaparral has two private suites, each with a separate entrance. A fully equipped kitchen is available for your use at no extra cost.
