I am a friendly Chef & Massage Practitioner, and would like to offer a very welcoming place to stay!
I grew up in the area and can help you find what you need whether it be snow, lakes, or just a cozy house to yourselves. Welcome!
A lovely 1600 square foot house on the East hill (quiet residential neighbourhood), surrounded by trees. Private and hidden, but a bright space. My guests have use of all the rooms in the house, but I generally stay on the property & interact a lot or little with them, depending on what you're looking for. Generally the house attracts easy going people who love food and relaxing!
There are 3 bedrooms in the house. A queen and a double room upstairs, and a queen downstairs. The double room is an open concept above the stairwell. There are also 2 single folding camping foams as additional beds for extra guests/kids. Upstairs during the hot months I have two mobile air conditioner units. The main floor stays quite cool in the summer/cozy in winter. The studio is where I work as a Massage Practitioner. It is a lovely 260 square ft separate building constructed as a letter press studio by my friend & former owner of the house.
There is one bathroom with large claw foot bathtub/ shower on the main floor along with the office, sun room with a work table, dining room with table that fits 8 comfortably (we've squeezed 12), and a very well stocked kitchen with gas stove.
There is internet, 3 bicycles, washer and dryer. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor storage for your belongings/gear.
Small vegetable & herb gardens & compost. Plenty of room to relax outside/bbq... The back yard is completely fenced in. Well, a tiny dog might be able to sneak out somewhere.. but it's definitely safe for kids.
I have a nice collection of books and magazines. Many great cookbooks.
Please specify if you'd like to have the place to yourselves and I can arrange to stay elsewhere for an additional charge, but I do run my massage business most days and need to be around during the day for clients. If I can, I like stay in the studio to still give my guests privacy. I do love meeting new people so I'm usually up for visiting!
I provide breakfast supplies & all the basics you'd need in the kitchen plus fresh fruits and vegetables... I can also cook breakfast for guests if I'm staying at the house, and am happy to cook other meals for additional cost. There's a more detailed description of what I offer under 'interaction w guests' including the Massage treatments.
Guests have access to the house, yard, garden, storage, bicycles, bbq, fire pit.
Общение с гостями
All levels of interaction! Just let me know what you're looking for. I love spending time w guests but I'm also respectful of your needs, & I can be present or not be around so much. When I stay, I sleep in the downstairs bedroom or massage studio. My place is most suitable for mature but easy going people who enjoy sharing space & are also respectful of others' space. I am very comfortable with people and love helping to provide them with a great vacation!
I do work from the workshop as a Massage Practitioner usually doing 2 massages a day at least so I usually need to be there during the day. I've trained in Thai/hot stone/herbal compress & warm oil and I'm happy to offer this service to guests.
I also offer home cooked meals, baking or pastry for an additional cost, usually made during your stay but I could also pre-prepare meals. Meals are usually medium fancy but if you have something else in mind I'm open. Some guests plan meals before they arrive, some once they've arrived. Up to you. The dining room comfortably fits 8 or so but in the warmer months, the back porch is ideal for meals. My backyard freezer is usually stocked with local meat raised by friends in the neighbouring town. I know many of the producers in the area and can introduce you to the markets, the farms & wineries around the okanagan/shuswap valleys. If you'd like a day of touring that's also an option.

My neighbours call me 'the Ambassador of Fun', which I definitely don't live up to full time, but it's fitting. I love to have & plan fun. I host, cook/cater, do Thai massage, throw all ages dance parties & give 'Hidden Gem' tours (tubing, wineries, taco trucks...) I am easy going, respectful, passionate, love to meet new people, and new animals:) .. and also love quiet time.
I grew up here in the Okanagan Valley, lived in Montreal for about 10 years where I mainly ran a little catering business & learned to cook pretty well by living in a very vibrant food culture with people who love to eat, drink & share. In 2008 I started working in mining camps in Northern British Columbia/Yukon Territories cooking for up to 200 people and lasted about 5 years... maybe opposite of life in Montreal. Now back in the Valley, I've made a cozy little place where my door is open and we're waiting to meet you! (well i mean I lock my doors, but ...you know what I mean:)
