Quails’ Gate  The Lake House, is lovely and large, plus can accommodate 14 guests in its Kelowna setting. Located right on Okanagan Lake, the home has a chef’s kitchen, its own private dock, and rosé-perfect patios. This is what an Okanagan wine country stay if all about. Roomy enough to share with an extended family, a bunch of your besties, or a corporate retreat.

Located in Oliver, Rust Wine Co.’s The Tokios House which first built in the 19th century for miners, but then then moved to its current location in 1964. In 2020 the interior received a nice renovation and upgraded with all the mod cons. Important to note, this rustic house does not have central AC and in the summer months The Golden Mile Bench does get plenty hot. However, a portable air conditioning unit is provided plus fans to cool it all down to comfortable. The entire house, or just the ‘apartment’ can be rented depending on your needs and number of guests.
