Overview

About the property

The perfect family vacation! Lakeside retreat for swimming, playing and relaxing

Our house is a lakefront bungalow situated right on Lake Okanagan with a private beach. This isn't just near the lake, or across the street from the lake, or close to a public access to the lake, or with a lake view - IT"S RIGHT ON THE LAKE!! Nothing comes between you and the water except a flat stretch of lawn. The lawn leads to a sandy beach and shallow water entry. The water deepens gradually to a swimming dock moored in deeper water 50' offshore. Perfect for swimming for all ages.

Although the house is on the west side of Lake Okanagan (getting great morning sun), the western mountains are low and are set well back so as not to block the late-day sun. We think it's one of the best locations on the entire lake.

The house itself is four bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms. It's a classic 1950's ranch style lakefront bungalow. It's not large but it's very well laid out.

The kitchen was recently updated with beautiful dark flecked granite countertops and newer appliances with a glass tile backsplash. There's a kitchen island for easy food preparation and serving. A propane barbecue sits on the deck just outside.

Why David Davies chose Summerland

I searched all over Lake Okanagan looking for the perfect family vacation spot. This place has a nice beach, shallow water entry, great for swimming, the lot is level and leads right to the water - there's no hike down to the lake. Unlike many other properties on the west side of Lake Okanagan, the mountains are set waaaaay back so that the sun doesn't go down until late in the evening. You also get the early morning sun every day.

What makes this house unique

There's a 10'x10' swim dock moored offshore. Adults can walk to within a few feet of it before the bottom drops off a bit and requires a swim. Once you're there, you can dive in, sunbathe, play paddleball or just have a nap. Kids love it.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at the Summerland house. The location is great and the house is well outfitted with everything you could need. There were 8 of us and we never felt over crowded once. We moored our boat just just a few metres from the shoreline right in front of the house.

The Davies were very friendly to deal with and they always returned my emails quickly. I would recommend the Summerland house to any families looking for a clean and quiet house right on the Okanagan Lake.

Great family getaway on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here in July 2015. Very central location, all shopping under 10min drive. Excellent vineyard almost walking distance (8th generation). Very comfy beds! Fans provided in most rooms! We tied our boat right out front on lake, also a canoe to use and containers with life jackets and many floaty toys. We were very pleased with the cottage and the owners were great!
