Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We currently live in Calgary and have been vacationing with our family at Mara Lake for 17 years. This was our favourite place to create great family memories, relax enjoy the peace and quiet, and visit with friends. As our kids have grown up, we find we don't get there as much but know one day our kids will bring their kids to Mara for the same experiences they had!

Why the Owner Chose North Okanagan F, BC, Canada:
We originally purchased a cottage up the road, but knew to have one right down at the water was always our dream. You can sit at the beach with your baby monitor, watch the Osprey pick fish out of the lake, kayak up the adjoining river and try all kinds of watersports on the ever calm lake water.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
All the deluxe comforts of home yet far enough removed from the craziness of everyday. Our cottage allows you to relax with ultimate privacy on our deck or explore the surrounding area by land or by water. Don't forget to visit the organic farm just 15 minutes away for a fabulous selection of produce.
