Property description

Accommodations: Cottage, 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Baths (Sleeps 5-7)

Welcome to 'Al's Hideaway'! You will find a peaceful and comfortably appointed home away from home, fully furnished and equipped. Time spent here will be quiet and relaxing while being close to the beach just down the hill.

The inviting upper and lower decks, large yard and hammock under the walnut tree provide the perfect combination of sun and shade for your outdoor activities. Located on a very small and quiet street, surrounded by lilacs and roses, the property is appreciated by young and old.

The house has 3 bedrooms and a TV/family room. The master bedroom has a queen bed, ensuite bath and access to the deck. The second bedroom has a queen bed, the third bedroom has a double bed and access to the patio, the TV/family room also has a single bed. All bedrooms have blackout window coverings to ensure deep rest (great for little ones who don't want the day to end!)

In the open concept living area, the deck access and windows add to the feeling of spaciousness. The kitchen is fully equipped with the outdoor dining/BBQ area just outside the garden doors.

On the lower level, the newly renovated main bath is complete with in-floor heat, inviting tub/shower and large linen closet. The laundry room provides an extra large capacity steam washer/dryer, folding area, storage and lovely view to the yard.

This is a great place to come home to after a day spent enjoying all the activities the Okanagan has to offer, any time of year!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose Summerland, BC, Canada:
I have been visiting family in the Okanagan for 25 years and this spot provided everything on my wish list!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking into the living room for the first time, I felt like I was on the bow of a boat with all the windows looking out to the yard, lake, valley and Naramata! Easy walking distance to the water, marina, beautiful gardens, panoramic lake and valley view, quiet and private. I saw that layout of the house would be perfect for multi-generational visits with space for together and alone time, and still feel cozy for smaller groups. Heavenly!
