The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake Getaway

Comments 399 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Osoyoos CottagesYou can’t miss the giant Muskoka chairs along Highway 1 and Highway 3 if you’ve driven throughout Southern BC over the last few years. Big, white, perked on the side of major thoroughfares these symbols of lakeside relaxation all advertise The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake.

With over 30 residents moved into their customized cottages already, this development is part of a project that will give rise to 280 homes over the next decade, in the heart of the South Okanagan. I was recently invited to the Osoyoos Cottages to check out the property, the custom offerings, and the scenic vistas offered along the shores of Canada’s warmest lake — and to offer up a getaway for my readers.

Osoyoos Cottages

The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake offers residents and visitors access to 1,800 feet of waterfront amongst some of the nation’s most climactic scenery and desirable weather, along with direct access to walking trails, several boat-slips, a 7,000 square foot clubhouse, nearby wineries and more.

The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake

Heading north on the Okanagan Highway from Osoyoos to Oliver, turn onto Road 22, which will guide you to Black Sage Road — one of the most popular wine country routes in the region. But before you loop past the old barn on Black Sage, turn onto Radio Tower Road and follow a 3.1km trail through ranch land and vineyards with wild horses and free-roaming cattle flanking your drive.

Osoyoos Cottages

Radio Tower Road curves up and around hillside corners, revealing a spectacular view of Osoyoos Lake from the north. After rumbling over a few cattle guards, watch for osprey circling overhead, quail crossing the road with babies in tow, and even turtles as you pass marshland. You’ll see a tell-tale overside white Muskoka chair guiding you to the gated entrance of Osoyoos Cottages and you’ll feel right at home.

I took Michelle along with me for a three-day stay, where we setup in one of the Meadow cottages complete with our own Club Car golf cart to get us around, although the site is very walkable with paved paths.

We met with Wilf Lethbridge and Florence Lethbridge, who make up the marketing team, and they filled us in on all the project details. Wilf also picked Michelle and I up in a golf cart and we toured some of the various cottages to get a feel for the variety in layouts.

There was an emphasis on customization — basically that once you pick your layout, they will fulfill any request you have to make your cottage your home in terms of features, finishings, and anything from fireplaces to balcony sizes. You want it, they will make sure you have it built into your vacation, retirement, or family home.

Life here allows for access to a warm climate, incredible amenities such as local wineries, award winning restaurants and golf courses, water activities, biking, walking and beach trails, boat slips and access to all that Lake Osoyoos has to offer.

Michelle and I shopped at the market and local wineries during the day, then came home to cook in the spacious kitchen followed by dining at sunset in our enclosed patio. In the mornings we brewed some coffee and sat out on (regular sized) Muskoka chairs on the patio as we stretched our toes to touch the lush green lawn.

    I have always dreamt of living in BC, even for just a few days. This would be a dream come true of mine. Never been to Osoyoos but my best friend (from BC) and I were planning on exploring various places in BC. Osoyoos was on our list. He was taken away from this world just over a year ago. Would love to have the opportunity to visit a town on our explore and take in all the natural beauty it has to offer. I would spend most of my time outdoors. I’d hope to see a few meteors during the nights.
