A HIDDEN FOREST OASIS! Nestled in the hills of the beautiful Okanagan Valley, our enchanting daylight suite offers tranquility and natural beauty, only steps away from world-class skiing, hiking, biking and all the splendor of Beautiful BC! Come visit paradise and restore your soul...
If you're looking for a quaint forest getaway, you've found it!
Our rustic walk-out daylight suite sits on 5 glorious acres of treed property, nestled in the woods of the North BX. It is a ten-minute drive to Silver Star Mountain for world-class skiing, a ten-minute drive to charming downtown Vernon and steps away from beautiful BX Falls, a hiker's paradise. In the summer season, we are a stone's throw away from award-winning wineries, sprawling orchards and world-renowned golf courses.
The space is completely private, boasts lots of light, and is warm and cozy with large, sunny rooms. There is one bedroom, a large front room (which can double as a second bedroom with two comfy couches for sleeping if needed), one bathroom with a stand-up shower (no bathtub), a well-equipped country kitchen (no dishwasher), a walk-out deck overlooking the Valley, a private entrance and lots of green space. The suite is rustically furnished with pine and fir decor, art by local artists, has a dining area for four, French doors opening onto the deck and an entertainment system in the front room and bedroom. There is a gorgeous canopy bed with a brand-new memory foam queen pillowtop mattress, a private washer and dryer, a reverse osmosis water system, radiant floor heating, unlimited parking and ample running room for the pups. We can provide an air mattress as a second bed on your request.
If you'd like to add a special occasion meal to your stay for an additional charge, I am an avid home chef and would be delighted to plan a menu and pamper you with an unforgettable feast featuring our plethora of local ingredients. I specialize in vegan, vegetarian, Middle Eastern, South American and Southern Italian cuisine as well as farm-to-table cooking.
We live upstairs and are always available in person or by phone to assist our guests.
Guests have access to the full self-contained suite with private entrance and its own deck and green space with Valley views. A lockbox code will be provided upon your arrival. You have the run of the five acre property which boasts multiple hiking trails. We live upstairs. The floors are soundproofed and we are extra mindful of being quiet when we have guests!

One of them is quite rocky and steep...if you're concerned about your vehicle, let us know and we will direct you to one of the others.

Hi there! I'm Melina, a professional opera singer from NYC, born in Argentina, raised in Manhattan and currently residing in one of the most beautiful places in the world: British Columbia's Okanagan Valley. I am a full-time performer, vocal teacher, producer and music director in Vernon and surrounding areas, running a theatre company and vocal training studio. I have travelled the world singing, and am grateful to call BC my home. I'm a classical voice graduate of the Juilliard School in NYC and love bringing the highest quality big-city entertainment to our local community. I have a passion for dogs, the ocean, reading, painting, cooking, writing, gardening and Seinfeld, to name a mere few! You may very well meet my 10-year-old Schnorkie, Zeke, my soulmutt and furry love of my life. My partner, Craig, is a chemistry and physics teacher, and was born and raised in Vernon. He is lovingly referred to as The Human Internet by his students because he is always a wealth of information! An avid outdoorsman, he knows this part of the world intimately. Craig is a welder, athlete, 4x4 trail leader, volleyball coach, handyman extraordinaire and a budding thespian, starring in many of my productions. We both love to read, spend time in nature, take spontaneous road trips and binge-watch Breaking Bad! Between us, we have three amazing teenagers who keep us on our toes as only teenagers can! We look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of paradise and we hope you enjoy it here as much as we do!
