Kelowna is located midway along the eastern shoreline of Okanagan Lake in the Valley of the same name, forested in Douglas fir and Ponderosa pine. With a thriving outdoor recreation scene and a vibrant food and wine culture, Kelowna cottage rentals are hard to beat. Situated just 56 kilometres from Big White Ski Resort (famed for its downhill skiing and boarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling, as well as snow biking), Kelowna is a great winter destination. In the summer, the lake makes for great swimming, canoeing and kayaking, jet and water skiing, wake boarding, and fishing. Further, the area is home to 20 golf courses that cater to all levels, and hiking, cycling, birding and horseback riding are other activities of choice for those who rent a cottage in Kelowna. Surrounded by bountiful farms, orchards, and vineyards, the area is at the forefront of the Thompson Okanagan food and wine revolution. To experience it firsthand, sample the famed cuisine at chic city bistros (many with Lake view patios), attend tastings at one of the 29 wineries in the region, or take a cooking class at Wine & Thyme or Mission Hill Family Estate winery. The grape trend has also gained traction at local spas, with the introduction of vinotherapy treatments. Visit local artist studios to see the leatherwork, pottery, sculpture, woodwood, and First Nations crafts on display, or meet with local artisans at the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market, which features products from 145 vendors. In addition to natural, outdoor, and cultural attractions, Kelowna vacation rentals offer a myriad of choice for couples, groups of friends, and families.+ More
