Close your eyes and picture it: a luscious valley with vineyards and orchards as far as the eye can see; majestic mountains surrounding you with their beauty and strength, and all of this is literally in your backyard. At least it is for the homeowners at The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake!

Set on the picturesque Osoyoos Lake, the quaint vacation spot is more than just your average cottage getaway. In fact, they have 13 different floor plans ranging from just under 1,000 sq. ft. to over 2,000! The developers behind this project see it as more than just a summer get-away; for them, “It’s good living. It’s a lifestyle”. Interested in something more permanent? Their homes are designed for year-round living, and being in the heart of wine country, you may never want to leave.

When you build with The Cottages on Osoyoos Lake, your options really are limitless! Just a few to name are: 6 options of James Hardie siding colours, 9-11 ft basement ceilings, fully finished garages, golf cart purchases for homeowners as well as a marina with 156 boat slips. Their unique style of development ensures that your home is exactly that: yours.

They offer would-be homeowners the option of 4 different design palettes to choose from, with the Driftwood being their most popular. Not a fan of white appliances? No problem! Upgrades include everything from chrome appliances to fireplaces, walk-in showers to full master ensuites. All roofs are constructed with asphalt shingles with a 25 year warranty, and the James Hardie siding will outlast and outwear typical vinyl siding. The on-site clubhouse boasts a hot tub and pool, as well as a small convenience store.

When asked about the average age of the homeowners, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that they range in age from young business people wanting a summer get-away, to the semi and fully retired couples happy to settle in the heart of wine country.

So do as they do in Osoyoos: open a bottle of wine (available at any of the fabulous local wineries- we loved The Burrowing Owl Winery), relax at the lake and enjoy the feeling of coming home.
