About the property

Comfortable, relaxing retreat has 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

This cozy little house retains some of the charming external characteristics of a once fully functioning barn. It is now a comfortable , relaxing retreat with all the amenities of your home away from home. Horses graze in nearby properties and at dawn or dusk you might catch a glimpse of the natural wildlife. At night the city lights twinkle from below. The Barn House at A Bit of Country is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation in a quiet , natural country setting only 10 minutes from town. We are a pet friendly facility..

Winter sports are only 25 minutes away to Silver Star Mountain Resort for the avid downhill skiers and even closer to Sovereign Lake for cross-country skiers. Vernon is in it's glory in the summertime-- Kal Lake and Okanagan Lake are only 15 minutes away by car , good golf courses, hiking and biking , wineries among the many things to experience.

A bit of Country

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the converted barn for two nights and felt like it was a home away from home. Very well equipped, very clean with a cozy, inviting atmosphere. Fun to visit the chicken coop ( the eggs were delicious!), the horses and night view is fabulous! Our hosts were so friendly and accommodating, even though they were busy preparing for a large event, they still took the time to chat with us. We forgot our iPad charger and they agreed to return it to us by mail! We would recommend this lovely cottage to all our friends for a quiet and peaceful getaway. In the country but only minutes from all amenities! Enjoy!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our girls were attending a tournament in Vernon and we have been tired of staying in hotels. The barn house was perfect for our family. Very clean and well maintained. We will be back again next year!!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two young kids drove all the way to Vernon from Oregon for spring break at Sovereign Lake. The barn house is well laid-out, impeccably clean, and very comfortable (especially the beds and comforters). It's up on a hill overlooking the town, very quiet with only the occasional neigh of a horse below. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Access to Sovereign Lake/Silver Star was easy -- only 25 minutes up a decent road. I can't imagine forking out all that money to stay at Silver Star. Dieter and Consuelo's rates were very reasonable. We will do our best to come back next year.

A Barn with everything

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to stay, even though we had a thunder storm the night we arrived. It was really pleasant to sit out on the cover deck and take in the amazing views of Vernon below. The barn had everything we could have asked for. I would highly recommend this as a nice place to get away and enjoy.

Car: necessary

Our property is situated on five acres of semi-wooded hillside just east of the city of Vernon in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada, with beautiful views and close to skiing, lakes, and several Okanagan activities.

Experience our quiet country-residential setting. Breathe the fresh country air, listen to the chirping of birds, watch horses grazing, or catch a glimpse of deer, quail or pheasants quietly going by. Take in Vernon's panoramic rural landscape by day and it's soft twinkling lights in the distance by night.

For those who enjoy hiking, behind our property are trails that lead up to Vernon Mountain. You will be rewarded with spectacular vistas of valleys, lakes and gentle rolling hills. You will appreciate being away from the traffic, noise and the hustle and bustle of city life. All this peace...and just ten minutes from town.
