Property description

The Lookout is a 2 bedroom self-catering suite. This is an unique opportunity to really enjoy your vacation in true Okanagan style! Located in a semi-rural setting surrounded by vineyards, orchards and sitting on the edge of Lake Okanagan.

We live in the top part of house but the ground floor walkout is a self contained very private space with separate entrances for each of the rooms. We have two complete bedrooms, each with:

* Queen bed
* 42 inch big screen TV
* Wifi
* Wall-mounted electric fireplace

Both rooms have french doors that open to the grassy knoll, the Lookout deck, hot tub and fire pit. There is a small indoor kitchen area with a microwave, toaster, toaster oven, fridge, drip coffee maker and bean grinder, plus all you would need for food preparation. There is an outdoor stove only.

In the outdoor cooking area there is a brand new Weber gas BBQ with burner and an outdoor 3 burner grill/stove with Dutch oven. Enjoy the view and atmosphere while cooking outside.

Our property is a fully fenced 1.25 acres with lots of room to spread out and enjoy the stunning views. The Lookout deck, hot tub and all the green space is yours to use exclusively.

We have 2 dogs, a golden-doodle named Rufus and a standard poodle named Shamus.

Inquire about our in-house wine tour company Sip Happens Wine Tours -

There are 6 award winning wineries in Lake Country including:

* Gray Monk Family Estate
* Arrowleaf Cellars
* Ex-Nihilo
* Intrigue Wines
* 50th Parallel

The Okanagan is home to many world class golf courses, Predator Ridge is 15 minutes away with its three award winning courses. Predator Ridge is also home to the Sparkling Hill Resort, a world class spa/resort. The Day Spa is available to use, see for day pricing.

There are also many marked hiking trails close by and great road cycling. We can help plan your rides with route suggestions.

All the amenities you need are a 10 minute drive in the town of Winfield. There you'll find Tim Horton's, a beautiful lakeside pub called Turtle Bay Marine and many other restaurants and shops to provide all you need.

We would be happy to provide any information or assist with planning day trips and just as happy to leave you to your own.
