About the property

House, winter upstairs - 2 Bedrooms up, 2 Baths, up (Sleeps 4), or rent whole

We are offering the upstairs only (sleeps 4) for the posted rates or ask us about renting the whole house (sleeps 9) (for the winter season) Better than a cottage stay, as it has all the conveniences, and also a very quiet country like setting, overlooking a farm valley to Okanagan Lake and 35 km to Terrace Mtn beyond. There are houses only on one side if the street and a cul-de-sac at the end, so there is little traffic to content with. There are walking trails and a park handy to relax nearby.

As it is located in a quiet neighborhood, we expect that sentiment to be respected by our guests. This is NOT a party house! The neighbors are quiet retired professionals. The deck has a great view, and folks enjoy that, but we ask that after 10PM the noise level on the deck be contained out of respect for our neighbors, and to comply with City Bylaws.

You're in the city, with everything handy, but it feels like the country. Clients have loved this concept.

Perfect for a minimum 6 night /7 day stay, or up to 1 month.

2 bedroom, executive home, with 2 Queen Sized beds up for the top floor rental, and downstairs 2 more bedrooms plus a 1 full single bed, a chaise Lounge, sleeps 9 adults if the whole house is rented.

Level entry, comfy, quiet, beautiful views, well featured.

Parking for 4 sedan cars... 2 inside the garage, 2 outside the garage, plus 1 beside the side walk, off street. There is no room for Big trucks, trailers, recreational boats and RV's to be parked on site.

Technology: For in house use, Stereo and big screen TV. The neighbours are sensitive to party noise and unusual neighbourhood activity, so we insist that the house be quiet by 11PM.

Wired and wireless internet.

Digital phone, unlimited North American Calling, with 3 handsets.

Desktop Computer with LCD screen, scanner, copier, printer

IPOD docking, clock radios in the upstairs bedrooms

Garage with security entry.

Runoff Water containment system.

Extra wide eaves designed to shade the upstairs during summer, but allow sun in during winter.

Nature: With cleared orchard land below, and the Turtle Mtn ridge in front, there are many deer, and smaller animals like marmots and lots of bird life including hawks and eagles.

This year even a porcupine waddles around the area!

Hiking trails are minutes away.

Okanagan Lake, and further Terrace Mtn (35kms) complete uninterrupted views.

Comforts & safety: Natural Gas Fireplace, dual zone furnace/air conditioning, Rinnia Hot water, Quartz countertops, full backed cabinets, all the crockery needed for 12, dishwasher, ice maker, filtered drinking water, front load washer and dryer, 2 car indoor garage, off street extra parking, fire suppression system, bamboo floors.

About Dave Weatherill

Joanne & Dave love to travel too, and appreciate welcoming accomodations, so we have kept that in mind as we have developed our own executive vacation rental home. We started from scratch in 1984, own and operate Briteland Holdings Ltd.. We are very involved in our community, especially in Rotary.

We love sports and like to take advantage of all that our area has to offer.

Vernon is a year round sports paradise,

with world class facilities really handy.

Dave Weatherill purchased this house in 2008

Why Dave Weatherill chose Turtle Mountain

We like to build things, businesses, lives and homes. We are keen about our environment and ecology, and have incorporated many energy efficient features into our Jemma Homes.

Turtle Mountain is a unique and new development in Vernon. It is a classy area of town, and really handy to all the amenities, including sports, shopping, entertainment and dining.

What makes this house unique

The open concept, on both floors, allows for great family and guest visiting time.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dave and Joanne, We enjoyed our stay in your house on Turtle Mountain in Vernon. The view was absolutely spectacular with every morning waking up to 12 to 15 deer in our backyard. The house was beautiful also, very comfortable and very well equipped. We were able to host a dinner party for 12 for our family in BC with no problem. We would highly recommend this rental home.

Excellent weekend in an amazing place!

From the outset this place was jaw dropping, amazing views combined with a fully functional exceptional home located on Turtle Mtn. The proprietors was extremely professional, always available and very attentive to our needs. I would highly recommend this property. My group had the best time we could have hoped for! Would definitely come back again!

A gorgeous house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The pictures truly do not do they house justice. We were on vacation in Vernon with a group of adults and this house was perfect for our group. The view was incredible, the house was clean, very comfortable and super spacious; even with 10 adults we never felt crowded. The kitchen was fantastic, between that and the BBQ group meals were easy to accomodate. It was the perfect rental, better than we could have hoped for.

Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful house for our family travelling in from New Zealand and Toronto for a wedding in Vernon. Communication with the owners was quick and easy. The house was exactly what we required, the views were great, and the accommodation extremely comfortable. We were very happy living and entertaining in this house, everything was modern and well appointed. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend anyone renting this property. The whole area was easily accessible to town and the wedding venue. We wish we could have stayed longer. We loved watching the deer from the balcony, and enjoyed the climb up Turtle Mountain. Thanks very much for making our stay so memorable.
