About the property

3 bedroom-2 bath- lake view cottage, clean and private. 15 minutes to Penticton

Don't stay in a hotel when you may have an entire house to yourself! Unwind in the heart of wine country in an updated, lake view cottage. You are the only occupants of the house which is nestled in a park like setting above the quaint village of Naramata. Conveniently located close to over 28 wonderful wineries along the famous Naramata Bench. As our reviews say, this home is clean, well cared for and comfortable. And yes, we have air conditioning!

Spacious, open plan living room, dining room and fully outfitted kitchen to make all your favourite meals - many of our past guests have complimented us on how well stocked our kitchen is. Lovely lake and forest views. A 40" flat screen TV is viewable from everywhere in this large open space. Secure WI FI and cable TV with Netflix.

Large master bedroom with king-size sleigh-bed, your own private deck (perfect for your own quiet time) and spacious en-suite with glass shower. Lie in bed and look at the lake. Second and third bedrooms have newer comfortable queen size beds - full bathroom with bathtub/shower adjacent. Sleeps up to six people (in real beds!) comfortably. All linens provided. We provide bath towels, soap, shampoo and blow dryer. Please use our washer and dryer.

There is plenty of outdoor living space. Relax on your choice of four private decks with beautiful views of Okanagan Lake, while sipping a glass of wine from one of the many nearby wineries. Propane BBQ for your outdoor cooking. Choose which deck to sit on depending on where the sun is! Watch the hummingbirds, quail and other birds enjoying the quiet yard. At the end of the day take in the stunning sunsets over the lake. It's the Okanagan - where you'll want to spend most of your time outside!

This is a perfect vacation home to enjoy the sandy beach at Manitou Park just a five minute drive away. Walk or bike (we have two basic bikes for you to use) the Kettle Valley Railway/Trans Canada Trail-with an access at the top of our street. You will want to visit the numerous (28!) renowned wineries on the Naramata Bench. Naramata is a scenic fifteen minute drive northeast of Penticton.

We understand that choosing the perfect vacation home for yourself, your family and friends can be a difficult task. Feel free to inquire with any questions you may have before booking. We are happy to help while you make your decision.

Please talk to us about bringing your small to mid-sized pet with you on your vacation. There is an additional charge for pets.

About Linda Desilets

Scott grew up in Winnipeg, MB and Linda in Port Moody, BC. We met in Vancouver. Now married for over 30 years, we have lived and raised our family in both Coquitlam and Calgary. When we became empty nesters and retired early, we followed our hearts and moved to Naramata. We love this quiet community with it’s tree lined village streets, beautiful lake and mountain views, and no traffic lights!

We enjoy hiking nearby forest trails and walking and biking the KVR. We love (perhaps too much!) drinking great wines from renowned wineries and vineyards of the Naramata Bench. We both volunteer and are active in the community. We are proud of our house and yard and gardening is a favourite pastime.

Over the years we have traveled to many places. We feel traveling has enriched our lives and we hope by sharing Naramata and our home with you, it will enrich yours. Vista Naramata Guest Suite is brand new and we designed it to give both guests and hosts their privacy. Hummingbird Haven Cottage is very private. We offer you the type of place we like to stay when traveling - clean, comfortable, spacious and private. We have furnished and stocked both with quality items to make them functional and welcoming - your home away from home.

We look forward to hosting you in Naramata.

Linda Desilets purchased this house in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home is so well equipped, and we delighted in moving from deck to deck, savoring the different views, with our morning coffee and sipping wine at happy hour.

I shall certainly be recommending your vacation home to anyone coming to Naramata.

Awesome property.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in the door, we felt like it was a home away from home. The whole house was well equipped, spotless, and had many areas to sit in the sun or the shade. The beds are comfortable, kitchen comes with all the utensils you may ever need....serving trays, wine glasses, big fridge. WOW. The view of Okanagan Lake is spectacular, with many great local wineries within a short drive. The little town of Naramata offers a few neat little shops and restaurants. Local advice at the Naramata Pub lead us to Joie Farm not miss this one. Didn't have the take out pizza but heard it was yummy. A short drive to Penticton market on Saturday is worth the trip, but the local little grocery store does provide a good selection of last minute items. Hummingbird Haven is awesome.

Quiet little gem!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hummingbird Haven. Exactly as represented in the pictures. Kitchen was very well stocked with all staples. Loved how close we were to the KVR and all the information that was provided to explore the area. Spent a few evenings sitting out back enjoying the stars. Definitely hope to be back!

A comfortable and scenic home base

  • 5 of 5

This is such a sweet and comfortable home on a quiet residential street above Naramata and about a 15 minute drive from Penticton. So clean, well provisioned with kitchen equipment and everything in good working order. The owners' pride shows. We spent our days exploring the area and loved coming home to this cozy nest with seating overlooking the lake and valley.

A lovely home in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Great location close to the town of Naramatta. Close to some of the vineyards and KVR is just up the street.

Was a shame about the smoke from the fires so we couldn't really enjoy the view at all but we all still had a great time.

I travelled with 2 girlfriends. It was nice that we all had our own rooms

Wonderful Naramata stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at Hummingbird Haven. The owners Linda and Scott have made this a very peaceful and well equipped vacation home. Very nice to be close to the KVR for biking and hiking, very close to a multitude of great wineries and bistros, a short drive to Penticton and a variety of beaches. Wonderful coffee and sweets at the Village Grounds in the quaint village of Naramata. We would highly recommend this place for a home away vacation!

Very nice house and lot, in the perfect quiet location but close to Naramata

  • 5 of 5

The quiet location was perfect for our napping kids but also close enough to the beach, town and wineries.
