About Tania & Mark Hodgson

My husband and I moved to BC from Ontario in 1996. Although we left our families behind, we were very excited to start a new life in beautiful BC. We are graduates from York U, and Western & McGill with teaching and business degrees. We drove across Canada with my pet turtle, and settled in Vancouver. Since that adventure started, we are now a family of 5 with a cat, living in Vancouver. Our family is constantly taking advantage of the great outdoors with skiing, boating, hiking and continue to discover what this province has to offer.

We always encourage our out of town relatives to visit, and sure enough, when they do, they too fall in love with beautiful BC!

Tania & Mark Hodgson purchased this house in 2013

Why Tania & Mark Hodgson chose Thompson Okanagan

During two week car journey from Ontario (1996), we drove through the Okanagan and fell in love with the landscape, and met enough kind people that left a great impression on us. We knew that one day we would buy here!

This property is particularly important to us, as it symbolizes how important it is to stay connected with our families back home. We bought this property, so that when our family visits, we can stay together in one place and create memories. Our kids enjoy everything that The Cottages has to offer, and the surrounding area.

We are so happy to be here, and want to share this wonderful location with our renters. It truly is a beautiful place to visit.

We like to take advantage of its amazing location on Canada's warmest lake and near BC's best wineries. Its a great place for family retreats and unwinding.

What makes this house unique

The drive up towards Osoyoos is a reminder of how beautiful this gem of a place is. You'll pass the spiritual Spotted Lake, the abundant fruit stands in Keremeos, and the huge Adirondack chairs will lead you to our cute 2400 sq/ft cottage on the lake.

We put care into the design and feel of our cottage. We didn't want it to show like a designer house from the city, for goodness sake, that is what we are all trying to get away from. Instead, we used personal items, to add spirit and generate feelings of comfort and relaxation.

We've mixed old with new furnishings and decor, and the layout of our specific floor plan works for 2 families to share. We've kept in mind that when our families visit from Ontario at the same time, there has to be a place for all. We have plenty of room in the basement area for a large group of kids to have a sleep over on the couches or floor (if they don't want to use their bunks upstairs).

The lower large screen TV is protected from the glare of the sun, so an afternoon movie will do for all while relaxing on the large sectional. The 8'x4' pool table is sturdy solid wood with room around, on those days you feel like staying in or challenging each other all night.

Upstairs is bright and airy with a fully stocked kitchen, with plenty of room to take in the views. The million dollar view will keep you gazing out the windows each moment, and you can see our boat slip and the wild horses grazing.

Once you walk in through the front door, you will instantly feel comforted at the thought that the layout and furnishings are kid friendly (you don't want to stress about that), the appliances are new and the laundry machines are ready (just in case). Listen to music on the BOSE, go for a walk, visit the clubhouse or head into town.

Leave the city life behind....relax, unwind and refresh your body and mind under the warmth of the sun!

You will enjoy many of these magical moments with your family, and it all starts with you booking our cottage.

Lazy days at the cottage with friends.

  • 5 of 5

The place was nicely furnished and large. It was nice waking up to the sun shining and the view of the lake. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, and bbq on the deck. Our group enjoyed using the pool and clubhouse fitness room. This weekend we visited the Area 27 race course and plan on coming back with friends. I would rate this cottage a high 10!

Vacation At Osoyoos Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this lovely waterfront cottage. The place presents itself as a clean well kept cottage. The view of the lake is breathtaking , if you are in the upper area , on the deck, from the kitchen, living, or dining area.The lower level area is great for fun and games. Indoor or outdoor, the pool table lends itself great for the young ones. Outdoor is fantastic with the hammock and comfortable Adirondack chairs for relaxing. If you are star gazers you will see the stars as you have never experienced before.

The white sand beach and the warm water was most enjoyable.

The rooms are spacious clean with comfortable beds. The decor is tastefully done and presents the cottage as a beautiful , cherished family home and not an investment property. We enjoyed the pool & hot tubs at the community centre. Everyday I used the gym's treadmill.

The weather is hot so bring your suntan lotion, your beach towels your favourite foods and leave the rest to your imagination for fun, games or relaxation.

The nearby wineries are great not just for wine tasting but offers fantastic dining. We look forward for our next stay, when we take leave from our suburban home in Scarborough Ontario to enjoy family time and the beautiful mountain view of the Okanagan region and all that it has to offer.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend some time with the family. The house was amazing, you could really tell this was a family’s treasured vacation home and not just an investment property. Everything you could have reasonably expected was provided, everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The complex was nicely landscaped and very clean. There was a lot to do outside with the family and close to excellent wineries if not with the kids. The owners were excellent to deal with and very helpful with questions and logistics. We will definitely keep this home in mind if we return to the area.

Creating memories for families year after year

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year staying in this gorgeous lakefront cottage. The room configuration works perfectly for our two families both upstairs and downstairs with media room for the two teenagers and bunk beds for the two 8 year olds. We love to watch the wild horses drink from the lake every morning and evening, the birds and ducks doing their thing, and this year we watched the beavers swim past and all from the comfort of our patio. The lovely touches of wood stacked in the garage if you desire a beach fire, the scooters for the kids to drive themselves to the pool, or the hammock that swings in the covered patio, add small but wonderful opportunities to create experiences in this well kept secret in the much quieter northern end of the lake. We never want to leave! Other than a small drive for dinner at Burrowing Owl Winery! Great pool with misters, and almost always uncrowded, otherwise the lake is right in front of this property. Boat slip available, what is there not to love in this resort.

Owner's Response: Hi Dee, We are glad that you are creating memories in Osoyoos with your family at our cottage. Happy to hear that you took advantage of the hammock and scooters, and we look forward to hosting you again!

Great vacation: Golf, Wine, Sun, Water

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental cottage for one two more families. The house easily accommodates two families with teenagers. Lots of space, great kitchen and outdoor patio for warm nights. It's very close to the wineries for the parents and right on the water for fun on the lake for the whole family.

The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake - private beach
Car: recommended

This gorgeous lake front home is located at the north shore of Osoyoos Lake. The quiet area of the lake is a family friendly paradise for water sports and swimming! Of course, we are only a short drive from world class wineries including Burrowing Owl Estates Winery and Black Hills Estate Winery.

In the summer, the local fruit stands and farmer's markets provide an opportunity to discover a wide variety of products including cherries, plums, peaches, apricots and nectarines.

In the winter we are just 50 km from Mount Baldy Ski Area and 180 km from Big White Ski Resort - great for all those riders that love powder snow!

A few steps down from the property takes you along a meandering path towards the dock, or to the 500 foot white sand beach, where you can enjoy an evening beach bonfire, play volleyball, or just watch the kids play in the sand. A clubhouse is shared amongst residents and vistors to this gated community, and includes 2 outdoor pools, 2 hot tub, fitness centre and shared common room.
