WINTER BOOKING SPECIAL: Welcome breakfast basket of coffee, bread, jams made from fruit grown on our property, and more.

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 the 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 off the Master contains a single bed which can serve as a child's room. There is a common room for hanging out on each floor, as well as a full bathroom (each renovated in 2012). 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

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 and movies by the fire.

Why the Owner Chose Naramata, BC, Canada:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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 or Nickel for cross-country. Air Canada and WestJet both fly into Penticton airport.
