When we talk about The Cottages at Osoyoos, you’ve probably heard us say many times over that one of the most amazing things about The Cottages is the homeowners and the sense of community! Here are some of our favorite stories from homeowners at The Cottages!
Frank & Donna
Frank and Donna first came to The Cottages on a recommendation from Donna’s sister. They were looking for a spot with mild winters and a rural atmosphere that was both kid and pet-friendly. The plan was to use this as a vacation home and rent out the space during the year when not in use. The couple fell in love with The Cottages and it became their permanent home after Frank was able to find a good job nearby! Donna love the theatre, music and arts events available to the community. The couple also loves the outdoors, spending time swimming, hiking, engaging in water sports and enjoying the sunshine. They also enjoy access to locally grown organic meats and produce, wineries and bakeries. And last but not least, they love the villages closeness within this private, gated community. “We have had potluck dinners, a summer parade, beach side bonfires and a Thanksgiving feast,” Donna remarks!
Linda & Charlie
Linda and Charlie lived just 20 kms north of Osoyoos Lake but they were looking to downsize into a smaller home with a simpler lifestyle. The Cottages at Osoyoos was the perfect answer; maintenance free living in a brand new home means they no longer have to worry about yard work or home renovations! The couple also enjoys access to the fitness room, pools/hot tub and 1,800 sq. ft of waterfront. Being close to both Osoyoos and Oliver allows them to remain active and enjoy local clubs and classes. In between, they often entertain as family and friends love the resort atmosphere that The Cottages offers.
Jeff & Cindy
A busy professional couple, Jeff and Cindy were living in North Vancouver and owned a condo in Osoyoos when development in the area caused them to lose their “water view” and they went looking for an alternative. There were many things that the couple loved about The Cottages. Their lot is close to both the beach and the clubhouse with unobstructed views and they were able to customize their chosen home plan to take advantage of the views! The Cottages at Osoyoos offers an all-around community style of living with lots of permanent residents so it is not a “weekend summer party resort”. “Our neighbors are lovely. Everyone is respectful of each other’s privacy,” says Cindy.
