Overview

About the property

Spacious Luxury Of A Farm Setting But Still Close To Beaches, Wineries And Town

At the heart of the Okanagan Valley's fruit and wine country, Mission Creek Country Inn is set on a sheep farm on Mission Creek between the historic log buildings of Pandosy Mission, Kelowna's first European settlement, and a regional park. There's lots to explore and experience in the farms 37 acres of pastures and woods-more like the Kelowna of 1909 when cattle and sheep were more common than today’s orchards and vineyards.

Our place isn’t luxurious in the usual sense; in over one hundred years of continual use the house has acquired some quirks and wrinkles. The farm, with its trees, pastures, flowers and animals is a special place which we feel happy to share with those who appreciate such things. That’s our luxury.

We’ve done our best to create a quiet rustic refuge for you to use as your headquarters to explore the Okanagan and experience a restful pace of life. You can visit the nearby wineries, golf courses, Okanagan lake, or the historic Kettle Valley railway’s Myra Canyon, or ride a bike on the nearby creek-side "greenway", then come home and visit out on the shady front porch—just like grandma usta do.

Owners Mark and Amber live in the basement and will do everything we can to make sure your stay is comfortable and relaxing.

About Mark Haley

That's me and my 1919 mother with Mission Creek in the background. Swapping palm trees for apple trees, I moved to Kelowna from Los Angeles to become an orchardist and start a family in 1981. Growing up in Southern California I became enamored with the early twentieth century Arts and Craft architectural style through examples like C&H Greene’s Gamble House and the Pasadena bungalows. So when the Kelowna General Hospital’s expansion forced removal or destruction for this eccentric shingle sided piece of early Kelowna architectural history, I took up the challenge, moved the house to my sister Sue’s sheep ranch and began a life work/labor of love restoration.

Mark Haley purchased this farmhouse in 1995

Awesome Family Holiday Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family all met at this lovely farm house for a weekend get together. Kelowna was convenient for everyone to get to and the Mission Creek Country Inn was a perfect location. The farm atmosphere was relaxing and entertaining for my 2.5 year old grandson. The owners were welcoming and helpful. The farm house was well equipped and had ample sleeping arrangements.Everyone had a wonderful time !

So Much Fun for the kids

  • 5 of 5

Mark graciously let us check in 2 hours early upon arrival. This helped us out as our family was coming from all directions and we had five children on board. The children had brought their bikes and they played softball in the big front yard. There are sheep and horses to visit. The house is a very large older farmhouse with a very interesting history. There is WiFi but no other additional technology - so back to the olden days.

We read, played games and visited. Wonderful family time together. It is definitely a unique and different place to stay. Recommend you take a pair of slippers as they have a no shoe policy on their hardwood floors.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ren. It was a pleasure for me to see your group having a good time; the children running and playing. Maybe next time the boys will be big enough for the bikes!

Such a cute, relaxing place for a get-away!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Mission Creek Country Inn for my best friend's stagette. Mark and Amber were super accommodating and friendly. The kitchen had everything we needed to whip up full meals and fun snacks, and the living room had a cozy atmosphere to socialize. This house was full of character and the perfect background for our girls weekend- the perfect mix of zen at the house and party in downtown Kelowna.

The only downfall is that the beds are a little stiff, but that can be found in even the most expensive hotels.

The house was also a little dusty, but somehow only added to the charm and home-y feeling. We were also sad that they no longer had goats :(

Overall, I would highly recommend staying here!

Five Generation Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for four days for a family get together. Mission Creek Inn was picture perfect. It had everything we needed.We loved everything about the house(the fireplace, the deck, the yard, the views and the baby lambs). Location is great,peaceful quiet country setting and still within five minutes from shopping. Mark was very kind and accommodating and we will visit again.

Perfect 5 days

  • 5 of 5

we rented the full house for five days for our daughter's wedding. Everything worked out beautifully. We set up a tent in the side yard and had 30 guests for dinner. House was full of guests for the five days. Amber and Mark were very accommodating. It was a perfect location for a rustic outdoor wedding. Bride and groom were very happy.

Car: recommended

Our 36 acre sheep farm is in a rural area but close to town. The close-by Mission Greenway linear park is a cool walking and biking trail that follows Mission Creek which forms the western boundary of the farm. The historic Kettle Valley Railway with it's trestles and tunnels is about 45 minute drive from our farm and well worth a visit.
