Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

H4 Ranch is located 5 minutes from downtown on a pastoral hillside overlooking the equestrian estates below. We raise cattle nearby, and have a horse and chickens. Don't be surprised if you find a dozen farm fresh eggs in your fridge upon arrival. Our ranch is neat and tidy, well manicured and almost free of your typical farm smells! After parking your car, you walk down the stairs, passing your personal BBQ to the left, and your eyes instantly focus on the hot tub, nestled under a timber frame pergola. There is no nicer way to enjoy the view than a soak in the tub in the morning or under the stars. You won't find more peace and solitude anywhere. A short distance away is a customized firepit, fully equipped with seating and firewood. There is ping pong and airhockey under the covered deck as well. When you walk through your private entrance, you enter the great room, which includes a full kitchen, dining room, and living room with a beautiful fireplace, and 55 inch flatscreen. There are large picture windows throughout to optimize the views.To the left, you walk into the larger suite, which sleeps 4 on a queen bed, as well as a pull out sofa. The fully private bathroom is custom tiled in limestone, with soaker tub and custom shower. This suite also has full laundry, 42inch flatscreen, cable and Wifi. To the right side of great room you will find the other suite. It is slightly smaller, but has some awesome features. It has a sitting area with another 42inch flatscreen, cable and wifi, large picture window, and a beautiful ensuite bathroom. It is tiled in quartzite, with a custom walk in shower with a bench seat, rainfall shower and wand.

About Dennis Huizinga

My wife Heather and I have been married for 17 years, have 2 great boys, 12 and 15. We enjoy rural living on a farm, and believe that it generates good work ethic for our sons. We share the farm with my parents, who live on the farm as well. We all work together to make this business venture function well.

Dennis Huizinga purchased this estate in 2007

Why Dennis Huizinga chose Vernon

We fell in love with the view. We have lived in the Okanagan most of our lives, and still can't get used to the beautiful landscape around us. The privacy and tranquility of the ranch keeps everyone coming back.

What makes this estate unique

We have a vast knowledge of the Okanagan valley, having lived here so long. We can help you plan an incredible vacation by suggesting where to go to find local amenities, fun activities, and secret gems only the locals know about. Our ranch will provide you with the rest and relaxation you are looking for.

A relaxing home away from home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two young children and my parents shared this sweet while in Vernon for a wedding. It is beautifully located on a hillside with stunning views. The suite is spacious, clean and has everything you need. Hosts were very welcoming. The only downfall was that because it's a walkout basement, you can sometimes hear people walking and the dog barking above you. This was a minor issue for us (very close to 5 stars). We would happily stay there if we're ever in the area again. It was MUCH more comfortable for a family than a hotel.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a truly wonderful place - a peaceful, scenic property with well equipped, spacious, comfortable, up to date lodgings - and great hosts! It is even nicer than the pictures show! Lots of space to relax inside and outside. We have stayed at about 20 vacation rentals in Canada, America and Europe and this is one of the best for amenities and value.

THE Place to Stay in Vernon - Gorgeous relaxing rental

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a fabulous family wedding weekend in Vernon and had to find a place to stay with my family of four and my sister. We rented the 2 bedroom suite which was roomy, clean, convenient and we had access to the most fabulous yard with games for the kids, a hot tub and firepit, outdoor furniture and a breathtaking view of beautiful Vernon. Dan and Heather were hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed including privacy (and farm fresh eggs!). It truly was a relaxing alternative to busy hotels and although we were only there for 2 days we really felt like we had a location. Highly recommend this location in Vernon!!

Amazing Family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 6 (including 3 little kids and 1 teen) were welcomed as if we were just coming to our own cottage. The home is amazing! So relaxing, the views are breath taking and there was no stress of feeling like we were staying at someone else's home. We were beyond happy and will certainly be back!
