'Nature and History Abound, while Adventure Awaits' Located in the picturesque Otter Valley, the town of Tulameen and Otter Lake itself serve as the backdrop for The Alder. Only 3.5 hours from Vancouver.
Our Chalet style Lake Home is a beautiful getaway to escape the everyday. Floor to peaked ceilings houses an impressive 21 foot window wall with an amazing view of our private sandy beachfront and our well appointed dock, all framed by the length of Otter Lake and the surrounding hills.
Standing on the North West shore of Otter Lake just through the town of Tulameen, The Alder is outfitted with everything you could think of and more. Our Lake Home is well provisioned, well maintained, spacious, clean, offers ample parking, with an impressively large and inviting deck. Our Chalet sleeps a maximum of twelve in four bedrooms and loft accommodations complete with three full bathrooms. If you’re looking for the perfect location for your year round holidays or for that weekend get a way, well you have found it.
From tranquil to full on adventure, there is something for everyone at The Alder at Otter Lake.
Tulameen and Otter Lake are located at some 2700 feet above sea level and nestled in the Eastern side of the Coastal Mountain range, just 23km North West of Princeton and some 70km South of Merritt in the Southern Okanagan - Similkameen region of British Columbia.
Getting to the Alder is easy. From Vancouver take the Trans Canada Hi-way to Hope and from Hope, take the No.3 Highway, the Crow's Nest, through scenic Manning Park to Princeton. Once into Princeton, follow Bridge Street through town and across the river on the old one-way wooden bridge. Turn left and follow the signs to Tulameen. The town of Tulameen is located some 25 minutes from Princeton. Make sure you turn right at the stop sign at Coalmont and drive past the old Coalmont Hotel. Once you come to the Tulameen General Store, stay on the main road going north through town then left along the west side of the lake.
We purchased this beautiful property with the long term in mind, so our children and friends could build treasured lifetime memories in this setting.
Wes purchased this chalet in 2010
This well appointed and beautifully finished Chalet is in the ideal location, located close to the city of Vancouver (3.5 hours) in an area that will have limited future growth. The outdoors, the adventure of exploration, riding ATV's and snowmobiling, the amount of activities available were a huge attraction.
The Kettle Valley railway and Trans Canada Trail run through the area, directly across Otter Lake from our place. This is truly a four season vacation destination. The Alder has a huge Deck off the front of the Chalet that provides unparalleled views up the lake, perfect for entertaining, eating and general relaxation.
We visited the Alder as a group of 8 for a long weekend getaway. The pictures had already promised much but everything still exceeded our expectations. The common living area is great for enjoying a glass of wine at the fireplace at night, the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and everything we need, yet still had enough storage space for all the food we had stocked up with for the trip. The BBQ on the deck was easily accessible from the kitchen. The big dining table, a great gathering place for breakfasts and dinners with more than enough space for all of us (and would've fitted 2-4 people more if needed be). I loved the fact that it was such an open space yet still had a lot of nooks and niches for some privacy. We felt at home instantly.
Our absolute highlight though was probably the amazing view form the windows in the mornings, looking onto the frozen lake (there was even a small patch prepared for skating) surrounded by the mountains and trees; and the cozy fire pit that added that extra bit of magic to each night.
Thank you Wes and Lori. We hope we'll be back soon.
Cabin was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the small town, lake and hike to the falls. Beautiful quiet area.
Would stay here again.
We had such a fantastic time this past weekend!! The house is BEAUTIFUL, fully stocked with everything you could possibly need....the patio is huge, the basketball net was a HUGE unexpected bonus!! Indoors and out, we loved everything about this beautiful home!!
We can't wait to return next year!! Thank you so much!!
The house was very well appointed. We were quite impressed. The pictures of the house were accurate, which was nice. We would absolutely return.
We had a perfect few nights at this well maintained, fully equipped cottage. Even though the weather wasn't perfect, we were able to enjoy the dock, the lake and the campfire. Thank you for making us feel so welcome, we certainly will be back!
We would highly recommend the Alder Chalet in Tulameen. Our Summer holiday at the Alder at Otter Lake was one of the most relaxing and best vacation experiences we have ever had. Firstly, the Chalet is beautifully laid out, spacious, clean, well stocked and truly inviting. We were so amazed at how relaxed and at home the Alder and its decor made us feel. The owners should be proud of this gem. The property slopes nicely down to the waterfront beach and large dock. The kids spent the majority of their time playing on the beach and swimming. The dock extends out far enough to accomodate boats even during low water in mid August. The Tulameen area has so many activities and outdoorsy things to do, that you could stay busy for two weeks, if you really wanted to. We probably rode a couple hundred KM on our ATV's and we only saw a portion of the surrounding hills. We are looking forward to coming back next year!
Otter Valley and the surrounding mountains are a mecca for ATV and snowmobile enthusiasts with a near unlimited area to explore.
