Older home with heritage features & new furnishings gives this house a cozy home feeling. Comfortable & charming, offers everything you need from an ipod music system to a fully stocked kitchen and bbq, comfy queen bed and private ensuite bathroom.

Okanagan Room offers Queen beds, dresser, closet, bed side table and a shelving unit. Last Christmas a major renovation was done creating two en-suite bathrooms so each bedroom has a private three piece bathroom. No more sharing!! The living room is cozy, has a gas fireplace and you can plug in your Ipod for music selections of your choice. Full access to a fully stocked kitchen and that includes coffee and tea for guests as well as herbs and spices in abundance if you want to cook a home cooked meal. I have a second room, Kalamalka Room. Check the calendar and see if they are both available and bring a friend! https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/6591320
The yard has parking in the rear, off street private parking. There is a barbecue for your use. The rest of the yard is under construction with the lower level development. Most guests would rather be at the beach or hiking the trails in the heat of summer so when they are home, the inside cool environment is appreciated. There will be decks created as the project moves forward. Enjoy the Okanagan!!
Interaction with guests
This house offers an upper floor where I reside. You get the main floor of the house, semi private, only one other guest. It's pretty quiet! My work takes me on journeys often so there are times I am home, and times I am away. I am inspired by amazing people and fantastic conversations and just as happy to be in my own space doing what matters to me.
Other things to note
Students are offered a higher discount. In order to achieve this with the system, I will send you a special offer. Please let me know you are a student and I will increase your weekly or monthly discount by an additional 5%.
I have great plans for upgrades to the house and they are underway. Expansion to the size of each of the two private rooms in the shared space and additional private suites are being created on the lower level. The first suite is being completed and is booked with a medical student for the fall. Availability is open from Dec 16 onward. The work has been outside and under the house over the summer. It is wrapping up and the finishing put in place. The landscaping will not be able to be taken to the next level until spring so for now it remains unfinished. Pictures will be getting posted as each stage completes. The work is being done in the unfinished areas, away from guests. When the renovations begin in each of the rooms, they will be blocked as unavailable for that period of time.
This is a non-smoking house. Pets are not encouraged but I have made exceptions. Please contact me regarding pets. I need to consider other guests and possible pet allergies etc.

Known in her younger years as the best hay bale stacker in the lower mainland, Trudy is now gaining favourable accolades in offering her home as a haven for travellers, business people, the in-laws, family members of patients, and students from across the street at the hospital.
With a business in leadership coaching, a background in customer service, and having raised 3 children, as well as hosting a gaggle of international students throughout the years; it was the natural step forward when her 24yr old daughter suggested that she turn the family home into a guest house.
Having an avid interest in international travel herself and the love of the outdoors, Trudy is a most gracious hostess, in not only sharing her home, but in offering advice on all to see and do in the greater area of the Okanagan. She loves to do what she can to make people feel welcome and comfortable.
