Property description

At the heart of the Okanagan Valley's fruit and wine country, Mission Creek Country Inn is set on a sheep farm on Mission Creek between the historic log buildings of Pandosy Mission, Kelowna's first European settlement, and a regional park. There's lots to explore and experience in the farms 37 acres of pastures and woods-more like the Kelowna of 1909 when cattle and sheep were more common than today’s orchards and vineyards.

Our place isn’t luxurious in the usual sense; in over one hundred years of continual use the house has acquired some quirks and wrinkles. The farm, with its trees, pastures, flowers and animals is a special place which we feel happy to share with those who appreciate such things. That’s our luxury.

We’ve done our best to create a quiet rustic refuge for you to use as your headquarters to explore the Okanagan and experience a restful pace of life. You can visit the nearby wineries, golf courses, Okanagan lake, or the historic Kettle Valley railway’s Myra Canyon, or ride a bike on the nearby creek-side "greenway", then come home and visit out on the shady front porch—just like grandma usta do.

Owners Mark and Amber live in the basement and will do everything we can to make sure your stay is comfortable and relaxing.

Car: Recommended

Our 36 acre sheep farm is in a rural area but close to town. The close-by Mission Greenway linear park is a cool walking and biking trail that follows Mission Creek which forms the western boundary of the farm. The historic Kettle Valley Railway with it's trestles and tunnels is about 45 minute drive from our farm and well worth a visit.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: That's me and my 1919 mother with Mission Creek in the background. Swapping palm trees for apple trees, I moved to Kelowna from Los Angeles to become an orchardist and start a family in 1981. Growing up in Southern California I became enamored with the early twentieth century Arts and Craft architectural style through examples like C&H Greene’s Gamble House and the Pasadena bungalows. So when the Kelowna General Hospital’s expansion forced removal or destruction for this eccentric shingle sided piece of early Kelowna architectural history, I took up the challenge, moved the house to my sister Sue’s sheep ranch and began a life work/labor of love restoration.

Why the Owner Chose South Pandosy - K.L.O., Kelowna, BC, Canada:
We’ve saved you an historic place on a beautiful working farm in an area renowned for visitor appeal. Come and enjoy your "Kelowna cottage"!
