Our cabin is nestled into 2.5 acres of cliffs, trees and 100% nature. Wake up and step out of the door and into the forest for your yoga or meditation practice surrounded by aspens and birch - our friendly chipmunks might even join you! The cabin is at the far edge of the property so you have the feeling of being away from the world while near all the activities and amenities of Coral Beach, Lake Country, Vernon and Kelowna. The kids can play in the woods, build camps and ramble like the days before the internet! However we do note that this is a rural property with rocks and ponds on the property. The house overlooks Riley Lake (this is a private lake belonging to our neighbours). However access to Okanagan Lake is only 7 mins down the road with boat launch and play area at Coral Beach.
