We had a nice 3 nights at this cute little lakeside cottage. Heather greeted us with a smile and fresh flowers on the table. It was very hot during our stay but the 1st night there was a nice breeze off the lake and the waves are soothing to listen to at night - the ceiling fan helped the next 2 nights. Although small, the cottage has everything you need and the outdoor space is great - an area to get out of the sun and a grassy spot to sunbathe & best of all the water is steps away. We enjoyed watching the boating action on the lake, and the many birds, including the resident quail family. The location is fabulous - golf, hiking, biking, beaches all within a short drive and the town 10 minutes away for shopping. We had a great chat with Heather and Bill who are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
Our stay at Heather's cottage was a pure delight! Her bright clean quiet enchanting little house, right on the shore of HUGE Okanagan Lake, was our home for 4 days! We visited the charming farmers' market offering fresh fruit and scrumptious crèpes, hiked in Kalamalka Provincial Park with astounding views of jade coloured Lake Kalamalka, and went kayaking on Okanagan Lake. Just sleeping to the sound of the waves with a light breeze coming through the window was worth the stay. Many thanks Heather!!
We had a wonderful stay at Heather's lake cottage. It was quiet, clean, and very comfortable. It was particularly hot during our visit so we definitely took advantage of the lake to cool off! Great getaway spot - highly recommend. :)
What a bliss to have stayed at this cozy sweet cottage for 2 nights... The lake is just a few steps away that the natural lullaby of water splashing on the shore accompanied us into dreams. This cottage is equipped with more than everything we needed, and it's very warm inside. Heather was so sweet to leave the whole space including the deck and lawn for our use, and she responded right away whenever we have any questions.
Thank you so much, Heather, for your efforts to make this the best BnB experience we've had, and we will definitely come back!!
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. The cottage is really fresh and clean and we loved that it is right on the lake. Heather and her family are very friendly and hospitable, which made us feel at home immediately. We highly recommend to stay at the cottage and hope to coma back one day :-)
Heather was very happy to see us when we arrived. She greeted us with a big warm smile! The cottage is beautiful and it looks exactly like the pictures. The location is fabulous! If we come back to Vernon we would definitely stay here again. Vernon is a wonderful place to visit.
Heather was a great host. My wife and I were later than expected on our arrival and she waited up for us to welcome us. She was so kind. And the cottage was beautiful. Right in the lake and very close to town. We would definitely recommend this beautiful place for anyone going that direction!
About the Host, Heather
I was born in Vernon and I still live in this beautiful valley. I enjoy lake activities and the beauty and serenity of lakeshore living. There are great walking trails up the mountain right outside my front door. My two daughters attend University here. I like to meet new people and look forward to this as an aspect of Air BnB.
One of my favorite quotes would be:
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
My property would provide you with many opportunities to Explore, Dream and Discover. :)
