About Stella Brown

The Stewart Family arrived in the Okanagan in 1908 and were pioneering horticulturalists. In 1956 the family purchased the land where the Nest and winery exist today. It was not until 1989 that Quails' Gate winery was established, and the family decide to create a private retreat at the base of the vineyards.

Stella Brown purchased this chalet in 1956

Why Stella Brown chose West Kelowna

The Nest was formerly the family's personal cottage, after all the children grew up it was renovated and is now shared with the public to rent and enjoy as they had done so for many years prior. It is completely private, surrounded only by vineyards, a wildlife sanctuary and the lake, lots of outdoor lawn space, a hot tub, and a beach to play on.

What makes this chalet unique

The cottage received an expansion and renovation in 2011 to modernize the building. Today it sits on a large piece of land beside Green Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. There is a small sandy beach making it the perfect place to relax and escape.

THE NEST Perfect for Anyone

  • 4 of 5

We spent one weekend in May here and found the Stewarts NEST to be a lovely place to enjoy the beauty of the incredible Lake Okanagan. Visiting ducks ,geese and of course the little quails and even a beautiful Heron kept us entertained while relaxing in the yard or on the deck.

A welcoming bottle of chilled Quails Gate Rose was waiting for us upon arrival...definitely an excellent wine for Spring!

Comfortable surroundings made us feel at home and the extra firm bed mattress gave us both the best sleep ever.

Bird lovers Paradise for sure
