We have lived in this home for 10 years and have done many upgrades to make this Cottage cute and cozy.We are so lucky to have found this great location in one of the best places in B.C. and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this cottage unique

We just love how close our house is located to the beach and all the amazing restaurants, shopping, attractions, festivals and farmers market.

One of our favorite things to do is to walk along Lakeshore and the river channel, swim in the lake, and mountain biking the many trails in the beautiful surrounding mountains and on the KVR trail.

Always a wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A consistently wonderful place to call home for our holiday. Our third stay at this lovely, clean, quiet & well appointed home in Penticton. Location is perfect for enjoying the beach, roaming the strip, a short stroll to downtown and easy access to the KVR to ride/run with kids. Beds are comfortable, all appliances and features work without any issue. The space is delightful and even with 33-37 degree weather the property has great spots to sit outside and enjoy in the shade and the a/c makes sleeping easy.

Cottage Nest

  • 5 of 5

I arrived to Cottage Nest with my three grandchildren July 7, 2017. Cottage is in a perfect location. A few minute walk to the beach another few blocks and you are at a very nice rec centre, Adventure park, down town and close to Highway 97. The Cottage was spotless and has everything you want. Julie is a great hostess from booking to her welcoming. The Cottage is done in shabby chic one of my favorites. I was very impressed and not even in the house 24 hours I was sending photos home. My littlest grandchildren had so much fun in the toy box that the house provides. My oldest grandson loved the studio, he had his private time away from his little sisters. I would recommend this home in a heart beat.

A Gem in Penticton

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great place to stay in Penticton. Julie was a great host throughout the entire venture, she responded quickly to my booking and all transactions were dealt with in a professional and welcoming manner. She respected our privacy and yet kept us informed about local activities. The character home is simply charming, with all the amenities that you need. It is a user friendly home and it stayed cool during the heat. We had a baby and a toddler with us(grandchildren) and The Cottage Nest is very child friendly with a chest of great toys, bath toys, books and an adorable playhouse. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter said she loved Julie's house. To top it all off you are 2 blocks from the beach, a playground and a walk along the water. We loved our stay in Penticton and this was due to the comforts of The Cottage Nest.

Wonderful stay in a cosy home

  • 5 of 5

My family (older parents and young daughter) had a wonderful stay at the Cottage Nest. The house is cosy, the beds are incredibly comfortable with nice clean soft linens, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need including oil, cling film, garbage bags. All the little bits you need to cook with that you wouldn't want to buy on a vacation. Julie had a wide selection of toys that kept my daughter entertained for hours, and the back garden is amazing. Private with a beautiful garden and a comfortable patio set. This house is incredibly close to the beach and downtown, we didn't need our car. I'd highly recommend this to anyone with young kids, anyone looking for a romantic getaway or anyone travelling with older parents who would miss the comforts of home. Julie was a fabulous host and responded to any questions we had right away.

Cottage Luxury and Outstanding Hostess

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the Cottage Nest for four nights this April.

When we first walked in we decided that the pictures and description does not do it justice. It is warm and clean with beautiful decorating and small touches that made us feel welcome, comfortable and appreciative. The outdoor space was especially nice to spend time in and the house was equipped with everything we needed for cooking. The stand alone claw foot bath tub was also a favourite part of our stay.

We ended up parking our car and walking everywhere because of the amazing location. The cottage was half a block from Okanogan Lake and we loved the early morning walks.

Julie was an amazing hostess and went above and beyond to ensure we had everything we needed. She responded immedietly and efficiently with questions and had great recommendations for attractions in the city.

We frequently use this service for travelling and can say this was one of the best experiences we have had yet and will definitely be back in the future.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect vacation home for our family with its close proximity to the hockey school, the beach, and playgrounds. The inside and outside living spaces are lovely. The cottage stayed nice and cool with the combination of fans and ac in the bedrooms, and the master bed was incredibly comfortable. This was the first vacation home that we have ever stayed in that actually had blackout blinds in the bedrooms which we really appreciated, as it kept our toddler from waking up at the crack of dawn! We definitely hope to stay here again.
