Relax and enjoy stunning wrap-around lake views from the deck, the verandah or the west-facing private hot tub at this charming century home surrounded by orchards and vineyards! Fabulous biking just three minutes away - suitable for recreational cyclists and avid bike buffs alike.

In summer, savour fresh cherries from two of Naramata's oldest cherry trees, right in your front yard. Grapes and plums abound in late summer and fall. Kids will enjoy the swings under the large shade trees. This home's tranquil setting offers loads of privacy while being only minutes away from anything you might need! Our home is approximately 2400 square feet on two levels, situated on a mature landscaped quarter acre lot. Hedges, trees, and the agricultural surroundings ensure a cosy retreat for you and your guests!

Located in the heart of the Naramata bench, you are never far from a winery. Check out the Okanagan Wine Festival - there is one for every season! We can help you make arrangements for wine tours and tastings. Tour any of the two dozen wineries, and sip a new favourite on the deck while watching the sun set across Lake Okanagan. Sample regional cuisine at local restaurants, or just unwind with meals prepared in the fully-equipped kitchen or the handy gas barbecue.

This home is ideal for a large group, or two families vacationing together. There are three bedrooms on the main floor, sleeping six: two rooms have a queen-size bed, and one has two twin beds which can be combined into a king. Upstairs are one bedroom with a queen, and a large Master bedroom with a king size bed. Another room beside the Master contains a single bed and a large closet. There is a common room for hanging out on each floor, as well as a full bathroom (each recently renovated). Enjoy your privacy, then come together for meals on the deck or at the family-size dining room table that can seat 12!

The village of Naramata is a nice walk or a short drive away, bringing you to Manitou Beach for swimming, or take your own boat out onto the lake via the public boat launch. Hikers and cyclists will enjoy the nearby Kettle Valley Railway trail complete with trestles, and spectacular scenery - just 3 minutes away! More rugged terrain is also right there for your pleasure.

NOTE: long weekend bookings are a minimum 3 night stay (Thanksgiving, BC or Alberta Family Day, Easter, Victoria Day).

About The Owner

We enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially when good food and wine are involved! We like to soak in beautiful views, which Canada has in abundance. We've lived in central and eastern Canada, have called Alberta home for over 10 years, and spend as much time in the Okanagan Valley of BC as we can. Hiking, skiing, cycling - it's all good! Then just having quiet times with books on the deck and (in winter) movies by the fire.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Naramata

After spending several summers in Naramata, we really wanted a place of our own. 970 Boothe Road is a unique place. The original part of the house is a farmhouse from around 1920; many additions were made over the following decades, with the last addition in 1996 putting the second story onto the house. The rural setting - apple orchard, peach trees and vineyards all around - coupled with the mature landscaping including trees and hedges, make our home a serene, secluded piece of heaven. The two cherry trees are very old and very large: too large to put your arms around the trunk! They produce an abundance of cherries in June/July. We also have currants and a bountiful Italian prune plum tree that has delicious fruit in late August or so. The deck arbour is shaded by a venerable table grape vine which produces from mid-summer to October! There's nothing like stepping out the kitchen door and cutting a bunch of grapes to snack on.

What makes this house unique

Our home has a very zen vibe to it. We feel very content and at peace there. The views are fantastic. There are loads of spots to sit by yourself or enjoy the company of others. You're just a short walk, ride or drive to anything you might want or need: a stroll/bike on the KVR Trail; swimming, paddleboarding or kayaking on the lake; wine tasting at any of the 2 dozen wineries. You're just 15 minutes to Penticton for shopping. In summer, enjoy a lazy tube ride down the channel; in winter, you're just 1 hour to Apex for downhill skiing, Nickel for cross-country or 5 minutes to the KVR trail for snowshoeing. Air Canada and WestJet both fly into Penticton airport.

Perfectly appointed to accommodate a relaxing girls getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Just bring your attire, toiletries, food, and some good walking shoes and you've got everything you need. Enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting at any number of local vineyards. Explore the area on foot and get your pleasurable cardio while enjoying the magnificent views of orchards and vineyards with the rolling hillsides and lake as your backdrop. Come back home to prepare your meal in the amply stocked kitchen. Dine inside or out, either way everyone will find a comfy chair and be surrounded by beauty. When the day is done retire to one of 7 beds, three of which are comfy queens, one king in a king sized room, and three singles (one in its own room, the other two in a quiet room at the back of the home). Don't forget about the hot tub waiting to soothe those tired arms from lifting all the wine glasses, or aching calves from walking up the steep hills.

The only thing to watch for, that could use some immediate attention are a couple of rickety steps coming off the back deck into the yard. Our thanks goes out to the Love's for their care and consideration creating this perfect getaway spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this fantastic review and overview of our property! As for the steps, be assured that this is happening. We arranged in August with our contractor to attend to the steps as soon as there is a sufficient gap between guests, so as to not disturb our guests oprivacy and enjoyment. This and a couple of other things we want done should be happening soon. Thanks again, and we look forward to your return. -Chris and Carole

A lovely home in a picturesque place

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, relaxing November long weekend we had in Naramata. This house has everything you need if you are a big group. Plenty of rooms, kitchen is well stocked, a dining room for large family-style dinners, and a hot tub with lovely views of the Okanagan. Naramata also has so many wineries and the house is about 15mins of biking from the Kettle Valley Railway. We had a great time and wouldn't hesitate to return!

Love this charming house

Stayed here twice and will come back. A spacious house with a character, beautiful grapevine terrace and shady cherry and plum trees. Owners don't pester you with unreasonable checkout rules. Spectacular views. Walking distance to the beach.

Naramata Charm

  • 5 of 5

My family celebrated my parents' 50th anniversary here. I chose Naramata because I wanted to share a place very near and dear to me with them. They loved their vacation and this was the perfect house to experience all Naramata has to offer. We especially enjoyed our meals out on the shady patio overlooking vineyards and the lake. The many rooms offered places for people to escape and relax when staying with extended family. The Loves were fantastic hosts. Highly recommend this stay.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed our property and its many unique features. The thick leaves of the grapevine over the arbour mean the deck remains a lovely place to hide from the sun while enjoying a glass of wine and the lake views. We look forward to hosting you again in future.

Okanagan Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family week for our second stay in your Naramata home. We love the

historic atmosphere of the house. So much character in a stunningly

beautiful setting. Plus all of the modern conveniences which make for

a relaxing holiday! It is a comfortable set up with great

bedrooms, mattresses, bedding and towels. The kitchen is well supplied

and easy to work in.

We used the well maintained hot tub and enjoyed using the two porches.

We picked cherries. The two massive cherry trees are beautiful.

The home interior was clean and prepared beautifully for us.

My only suggestion is more pruning to optimize the lake view and grounds.

Your home is an Okanagan 'gem'.

Owner's Response: We are very glad you and your family enjoyed your week at our home, and that the cherries added a special touch. We work hard to keep our home and grounds in great shape so you can relax and unwind. Cheers!
