About the property

Self catering 2 Bedroom Suite with access to Lake Okanagan right across the road

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. 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.

We will consider your dog so please inquire.

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, Starbucks, a lakeside pub called Turtle Bay Marine and many other restaurants and shops to provide all you need.

Why Liz McKinney chose Thompson Okanagan

Carr's Landing is a peaceful rural area steeped in history and located 20 minutes from Kelowna or Vernon.. It is a peaceful, serene setting surrounded by the soothing nature of the lake and vineyards. The fire-pit, hot-tub and the LookOut deck all provide amazing views and a feeling of wide open space on this 1.25 acre property.

This is a very unique property to enjoy some Okanagan time, quiet, peaceful and with breathtakingly scenic lake views.

We have incredible road cycling right out our door on a previous Gran Fondo Route. World class cycling at your doorstep. We will be happy to answer any question regarding routes or any other questions.There is also great mountain biking near by as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely amazing family vacation. The Lookout was incredible and Liz and Mel were wonderful hosts. We were traveling with 2 young kids and they were incredibly accommodating. The unit and the property has absolutely everything we needed for a week long getaway. The views were gorgeous and the fresh apples from their tree was such a hit (especially with our 2 year old). We would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Lake Country. Thanks for such a great time!

Beautiful Lake Country BC

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay. Great place, great hosts. Had everything you would need in a vacation spot. Loved the outdoor kitchen and waking up to an amazing lake view. The deck overlooking the lake is spectacular and sitting and enjoying a late night hot tub with the moon and stars was awesome. Location was quiet and rural and made for some quiet time but close enough to many attractions. Golf was close and discovered some great new wineries close by. All in all a wonderful stay!

Our accommodations at the Lookout were amazing! Liz and Mel were incredible hosts and made us feel right at home. They were welcoming and always available to answer any questions we had about the area. The property was incredibly beautiful (the photo's don't do justice!) and we fully enjoyed the lovely suite, and all the amenities on the property (hot tub, backyard area, bbq and playful pups!). The rental is conveniently close to everything you need - wineries and the lake! Without hesitation, we would LOVE to return for another relaxing vacation. Thanks so much Liz and Mel! :)

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Liz and Mel were extremely welcoming and great hosts. The place was clean and organized when we arrived and it had everything that we needed.

The house is in a great area. It has a quiet and rural feeling while still being only 10-15 minutes from groceries, wine farms and a few restaurants. It's also a short walk to the lake across the road!
