My grandchildren love to feed the goats nearby, play volleyball at the park, eat ice-cream at the Cafe Museum, while mom and dad relax with a cappuccino. Playground and soccer field, and Marina very close for boating and mooring. Beaches are sectioned off with buoys for children to swim, and raft. Ski, hike, or bike in the pine tree area along the lake trails or the windy roads, Swim, fish, water ski, or kayak in the crystal clear water. It is beautifully calm most of the summer. Once in a while a Santa Anna wind arises and the excitement begins as the waves and white caps climb high.

GRAY MONK ESTATE WINERY
Meet the Chef:
A native to the farmlands of southwest Saskatchewan. He spent much of his childhood on the family farm, where he experienced the difference between the food grown on the farm and that bought in town at the local supermarket or butcher. After graduating from high school Wade took his professional cooking training at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and completed his Red Seal Certification. Following several years under Chef Restituto Mendoza at Heritage Pointe Golf & C.C. he went on to work at the Coast Plaza Hotel and the Calgary Winter Club. Then it was out to Vancouver for Monk Mc Queen’s, Shaughnessy Golf & C.C. and the University Golf Course.
“I am thrilled to see the revitalization of small farms and variety of fresh, healthy, flavorful products that can be locally purchased.” You will find this evident as you experience the fresh smells and flavours when you visit the Grapevine Restaurant. The attention to detail and the pride in knowing we have given you a truly memorable time is our constant goal. With the stunning views, unparalleled wines from Gray Monk and culinary creations inspired by all the best the Okanagan Valley has to offer you will see firsthand why so many people are enamored with this land we call home.

ARROWLEAF WINERY
One of our favourites this distinctive winery and patio aperitifs, has picnic tables where you can enjoy the view, relax with friends and sip your favourite wines with the whole family.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love the Okanagan Lake so much that we purchased this property with a guest country cottage on the property. This area reminds us of the Italian coastline and enjoys many fruit trees, wineries, lakes, and amusements nearby. Kelowna area is one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world for golfing and wine tours and winter skiing. We moved here and designed the gardens with herbs like orange mint, sage, fennel, dill, parsley, and tomatoes. We also love to grow flowers so the property has a fruit salad apple tree (4 kinds), blueberry bushes, redbud, roses, and lavender and fragrant lilies. The Casablanca is my favourite. This area is historic and adjacent to the property is an 800 year old fir tree which is antique and a heritage specimen. the neighbourhood has been around for 100 years and has a museum in the 'old school', cafe and old fruit packing building that is active cleaning and packing fruit. The paddle boats used to travel the Okanagan Lake with fruit from all the neighbouring towns and clean and pack and send out by railway before the Highway 97 was built. For history buffs there is the book written on the beginnings of Carr's Landing and this area. The city of Winfield celebrates each weekend in the summer music concerts in the parks in the area. There is so much for kids to do at the Kangaroo Park, skate park, water park, farmers markets, Davidson Orchard and petting zoo, Oyama Zipline, and miniature golf, bumper cars, and race track and batting cages. Golf is amazing here from Tower Ranch, Predator Ridge, The Quail, The Rise, to Kelowna Springs just to name a few top notch challenges. Swim, bike, walk the lake paths under the sweet smell of pine. Rent a boat at Turtle Bay and explore Wood Lake and Kalmalka Lake, water ski, or park and have a beer at the pub near Vernon. For bird watchers and animal lovers there are quail, owls

Why the Owner Chose Okanagan Centre, Lake Country, BC, Canada:
SUMMER and WINTER FUN HISTORICAL AREA There is an antique Fir tree (800 years old) behind our property, a museum which is a historical site where the orchards were planted 130 years ago. We have a quiet neighborhood where you will be able to get a good nights sleep and off to the wineries. Visit the many wineries as close as a walk up the hill to Gray Monk and Arrowleaf. Sun bathing, clean refreshing water, walks along the 20 mile waterfront or bike challenges on the windy hills are all here for you to enjoy. FRESH ORGANIC PRODUCE in Winfield on Fridays and in Kelowna on Wed and Saturday mornings. This property is in a historic area from the early century. There is a very special neighborhood and it is friendly. the beach is so delightful to sit and read by, go for a dip, or boat in. There are many places to explore right here. We are still enjoying bike trails in the kettle valley where you ride on the train tressels with panoramic views below and the lakes from a distance. We ski in the winter at Silver Star and it is spectacular. Cross country, snowshoe, and cliff climbing. Food here is wonderful and tasty. FRESH ORGANIC FARM EGGS BLUEBERRIES ORGANIC CHERRY TREES @ Walter Franks PEACH TREES and other fruit at Wendells Orchard (Carrs Landing) APRICOT Organic TREES @ Bryant FARMS (Hare Road) and many more fruits at the markets both in Kelowna and Winfield. Artisans are active here: painters, sculpture, ceramics, and more. First week in Sept there are many artists gather in the town to display their art. My husband and I grew up in Calgary, AB and we never experienced country living. We did not know what we were missing. Great place to eat and explore many wineries. Gray Monk (walking distance), Arrowleaf Winery and outdoor picnic, and Naramata Bench for red wines.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Featuring : Arrow Leaf Winery... is "Our Family Favorite" walking distance and has picnic tables for wine and cheese, children included and a gorgeous view as well with a NEW PATIO with light snacks served for adults to enjoy. Arrowleaf judged the number two winery in Canada at The Nationals. posted Dec. 2015 The WineAlign National Wine Awards of Canada is this country's most comprehensive and reputable wine competition. Highly respected judges blind-tasted 1408 wines from 205 wineries and awarded platinum, gold, silver and bronze medals. Based on each winery's performance, they compiled a list of this year's top 25 wineries in Canada. We are thrilled to have won 5 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals, making us the number two winery in Canada! We have made it into the top 25 before, but being so close to the top is an achievement we are very proud of. Congratulations to the winery of the year, Mission Hill Family Estate, and to everyone who made the top 25. Golfing is Fantastic and we are close to many and yet in the country where you can enjoy a swim after a hot day golfing. Wine Touring or visiting sights is always more enjoyable knowing you can cool off at the beach for a quick swim. Being close to the water. The water here is cleaner, larger, warmer climate and longer growing season. Tall pine trees scent the trails and there height and stature are beautiful. Everything grows here in this wonderful climate. Boating is spacious and good for fishing. Quaint, quiet, therapeutic, warm sunny days, beautiful countryside. Night stars, no street lights, and visits around the campfire, setting a table with Casablanca Lilies from my garden, roses, lavender, lilac. Walking to the museum and cafe for a cup of coffee. Experience the pioneers from the past at the museum and park as you pass a 800 year old tree in our back alley. Local produce, artisans, artists with products unique to this area. Walks in all seasons along the waterfront Friendly neighbours
