About the Property

House with 5 bedrooms, 2 cabins, den with pull out and 3 full bathrooms, 2 half

Home, entirely constructed of wood, was built 5 years ago in luxury yet rustic style with asymmetrical truss system of vaulted (25 ft) ceiling in the Great Room.

The simple open design creates a large space for socializing and cooking while allowing for small intimate conversations as well. Large sunny screened in porch hangs out towards the water and is a perfect place to hangout or eat meals.

Outdoor deck is perfect for mornings to bask in the sunlight before moving to the dock for reading, swimming and other water sports.

The cottage is very private with 316 ft of waterfront and 1.25 acres of land and is 20-30 minutes from shops, wineries, golf courses and restaurants. The kitchen is perfect for all types of cooks, with high end appliances including stand along refrigerator, freezer, 2 full ovens, induction cook top and two dishwashers in the pantry.

The main floor has one bedroom with ensuite and king bed while upstairs there are two wings connected by a catwalk, each with a bedroom with king bed and one with bunkbeds which share a bathroom, ideal for 2 families with young kids. There is a queen pullout in the office/tv room and two romantic bunkies at the water's edge, one with a king bed, the other with two twins that can be made into a king bed.

The two bunkies are connected by a composting toilet. Lawn on one side is perfect for games such as badminton, croquet and bocci and ping pong table on other side and a hammock provide entertainment for quiet summer afternoons.

This property is ideal for a wedding of up to 100 people with ceremony carried out with wedding party on the dock and guests seated/standing on the beach.

A boat lift is available to ensure your boat is secure at all times.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: We are Paul and Kathy. Paul is a retired lawyer who works as a commercial mediator and negotiation strategist. Kathy is an executive coach and author, primarily working in healthcare with a focus on leadership development and communications. We purchased the property 25 years ago when it was a charming old farmhouse situated on a large private piece of waterfront which we rented one summer and fell in love with the area. Five years ago we decided to rebuild as our family expanded with new grandchildren. Now we have a wonderful space with room for our adult children, their spouses and children.

Why the Owner Chose Vernon, BC, Canada:
We love the climate of the Okanagan with warm dry summers and cold snowy winters. The lake is beautiful to swim in, feeling like velvet on one's skin. We fell in love with the property when we first rented it and felt very blessed when we were able to purchase it the following year. Our children were then teenagers, who each had a bunkie by the lake. They and their friends loved hanging out on the screened in porch or dock. Now they have young children who look forward to their visits.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We fell in love with the property which is somewhat secluded and private. The new home is constructed completely of wood and has a warmth and special energy that is difficulty to describe. Some have told us it is the most spectacular home they have ever been in. Although not overly large at 3200 sq ft, it has a voluminous quality that creates a spaciousness, particularly in the summer when we live on the large screened in porch. Facing directly east, we get spectacular sun rises and the sun is off the dock late afternoon, allowing the house to cool down making sleeping comfortable.
