Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Firethorn Farms is a unique property in the South Okanagan of British Columbia.

Your privacy is assured as you will be the only visitors to this functioning farm of 11 acres with a protected entrance. We use a variety of alternative energy sources such as geothermal, heat pumps and solar power to protect the environment.

The beach has three distinct areas for your benefit as well as a unique beachfront garden. The summer weather is the driest and warmest in Canada as we are situated in the only desert in Canada with an average summer daytime temperature of more than 30 degrees Celsius (90 F).

During the summer months all the local fruits from cherries, plums, peaches, apricots to the fall nectarines and apples can be enjoyed. The local farmer's markets provide an opportunity to discover a wide variety of products.

You will have your choice between a busy active lakefront holiday or the peace and quiet of a private retreat.

About Steven or Anna

My wife and I relocated here to enjoy the warmth of the Okanagan. We were attracted by the paucity of rainfall and the natural beauty of the desert. The nearby water provided summer sports for our children with the proximity for golf and cycling a major attraction. During the winter we are only 30 minutes from skiing and have very little snowfall on the ground. We are thrilled by the opportunity to have our own orchard of cherries and plums with the nearby vineyards and wineries enhanced the agricultural ambience.

Steven or Anna purchased this house in 2000

Why Steven or Anna chose Osoyoos

The weather here is outstanding, for Canada, year round. The nearly limitless recreational opportunities catered to our desire for relaxation. However the orchard gave some respite from the normal day to day work.

What makes this house unique

There is a private beachfront with nearly 2000 feet of freedom from neighbours. The 11 acres of property is landscaped beautifully with the serenity of relative isolation free to enjoy. There are private sunbathing areas, the warmest lake in Canada and a dock for your watercraft. There is access to one of the best golf courses in Canada at Fairview Mountain in nearby Oliver. Hiking and biking paths are readily available.

Loved it! 👌🏿

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely beautiful, park like setting right on the lake! Lovely, large home with very comfy beds.

Our stay could only have been improved if the forest fire smoke hadn’t been there during our week’s stay. Thanks so much, Steven and Anna!

An amazing property with so much privacy.

  • 5 of 5

They truly made the place very warm and welcoming. Inside was beautifully finished and the back yard was very private. It's incredible being able to launch the boat right beside the dock. And the landscaping is breathtaking. All while being very close to all the amenities.
