Located on 25 acres of hillside overlooking the city of Vernon and Okanagan Valley, with amazing views all around you, you will love to vacation in this huge suite (1748 square feet) with its own yard and outdoor relaxation areas. We are only a 7-minute drive to the north end of Vernon and about 10 minutes to the south end. 15 minutes will get you to Kalamalka Lake, and 20 minutes to Okanagan Lake. Private and quiet, yet close to the city for all the amenities and excitement Vernon has to offer!
The views of the valley, the city of Vernon with Okanagan Lake and Terrace Mountain in the distance are incredible. At dusk, you will watch the sun disappear behind the hills then turn your gaze to the valley below you, the twinkling of the city lights will capture you, yet here you are in the ...Located on 25 acres of hillside overlooking the city of Vernon and Okanagan Valley, with amazing views all around you, you will love to vacation in this huge suite (1748 square feet) with its own yard and outdoor relaxation areas.

The suite has 9' ceilings and is very spacious. It is half below-ground so stays a perfect temperature year-round. There are 2 bedrooms (sleeps 7 with one couple on a queen bed in the main bedroom with 3 on tween bunk beds and two more on a double bed in the other bedroom). The two double beds have new mattresses, so you will have a great sleep! A separate TV/playroom has been decorated with black leather furniture: sofa, loveseat, beanbag chair, ottoman and cube chairs which fit underneath (storage for toys). The 20' x 20' main bedroom, decorated with the romantic feel of the Victorian era, enjoys 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and a goose-down duvet, two large closets, a sitting area with a TV, a bookcase with lots of books for adults and children, an antique vanity and rocking chair, and a crib for the little one. The living room, with the couch set in a bay window and a chair close by, enjoys fabulous views, and there's an electric fireplace with two pub chairs for a warm cozy chat or just quiet time listening to the stereo (CD library provided). The kitchen is large and well-designed with everything you will need for meal preparation, and there's a table which comfortably seats 6 (7 if needed). You have your own laundry room with new washer and dryer, and a spacious, clean bathroom. Brazilian cherry flooring are in the front bedroom and the living room: gorgeous.
The property is close to everything - Vernon has nearly everything you can think of to do: beaches, water sports, boating, golf, waterslides, rock climbing, cliff diving, scuba diving, sky diving, hiking, fishing, skiing, antiquing, adrenaline sports, Okanagan Rail Trail. Loads of stuff to do.

Interaction with guests:
Our small family of 4 lives on the middle and upper floors of the house, so we are usually available but do not interfere with your privacy. If you need anything, you can ring our doorbell, phone our home or call/text our cell phones. We have a cabin on Okanagan Lake and sometimes stay overnight, but we are only 1/2 hour away if you need us and always advise you of our plans if we will be away. If we aren't home when you arrive or depart, we will let you know in advance and give you instructions. We love Vernon and have lived here over 30 years, so we have tons of suggestions about things to do if you wish - all you have to do is ask :)

Thank you, Sandra and Sig! It's awesome to see you and your family, each time you've come. Hope you get to slow down and enjoy the yard and sports court one of these days!
Being so close to the city and lakes, yet so far away from the craziness of traffic and noise of the city, our home is located on 25 acres of treed hillside, so you can take quiet walks or hike up the hill behind our house, and take in the amazing views Hartnell Road and Kingsview Road have to offer. BX Falls is 5 minutes' away, BX Press Cidery and Orchard only 4 minutes' drive, Silver Star Ski Resort is a 22-minute drive, and Vernon with Kalamalka Lake, Okanagan Lake and Swan Lake is a 7-minute drive.
Vernon isn't a large city, so driving from place to place isn't difficult and lots of activities can be accomplished in a day.
