The house has incredible lake views from two large tired decks. The lower deck has a red brick barbeque/ smoke cooker. These decks are perfect areas for relaxing, sharing a meal, or just enjoying the view. Wildlife including deer, bear, coyote, and big horn sheep can be spotted year round. Located next to La Casa Resort, South Fintry Retreat can be reached via Kelowna or Vernon with an approximate drive time of 45 minutes.

Bear Creek Provincial Park is approximately fifteen minutes away offering another opportunity for great hiking.

Beautiful view in a lovely, secluded location.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property in the last week of June with 8 people, and 10 people for the final 3 days. There are so many different spaces in the house (upstairs, main floor, basement, deck, dock, and surrounding area), that nobody felt like we were on top of each other. The large open kitchen has two sinks which made communal cooking very convenient. The dock is large enough to accommodate a lot of people, and there are also some small pebble beaches on the property that were ideal for our toddler to walk around.

Wonderful place for a holiday with a large family!

Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for a group of friends to get away and the house is cozy and equipped with everything we needed! The guys had a pool table and shuffle hockey while the ladies we're able to just talk. The private dock was great as well for when we rented a boat about 10 minutes away.

Fun times!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the lake house! We came with a big group of friends and it was the perfect size for us. The lake views and personal dock were fantastic! We were able to bring our own boat and launch it down the road with no problems. Susan was very helpful and responded promptly to our questions beforehand. Definitely recommend this place for a getaway!

Great lake house!

  • 4 of 5

We had three families meet up for a week at this lake house. It was large and accommodated the group well! There are 3 large balconies, one can be closed off to keep pets or younger children in their own space. The main level has no stairs so someone who is challenged with mobility issues can manage it.

Kitchen has lots of prep space, 2 sinks and lots of supplies. Unfortunately the BBQ was barely adequate. We were not able to use the large wood fired oven because of the campfire ban.

Another negative was that 2 of the bedrooms have skylights. Who thinks that's a good idea? We were woken up at 6:30 every day. They should be covered with tinfoil at least or a rectangle of black out fabric could be tacked to the ceiling.

Wifi was available but worked best before 8am. Otherwise there was just too much demand.

Lovely views and access to the lake. Three beaches and a large dock were more than enough for our crew including a boat. Lake was clean and a refreshing temperature. (Warmer than we expected). Enjoyed watching the fish off the dock!

We rented water toys and filled the boat with gas at a marina about 13 km away.

The surrounding property was forested which made for nice walking and a feeling of privacy.

Fintry Provincial Park nearby is worth a visit!

It's about 40 minutes to Vernon or Kelowna for supplies. There's a convenience store closer but it's predictably expensive.

great location with great views! Loved the dock!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location and the views. The cottage was older. But very clean and accommodates a large group well! The manager was super friendly and easy to deal with. We did run out of basic supplies such as toilet paper, dish soap etc. There is a small convenience store close by. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for the long weekend, and it was a perfect spot. A big patio, private beach, secluded setting, wood-fired pizza oven...there really is everything you need in this one location for your getaway. We won't hesitate to book this again. And again. And again...
