Location + Surroundings

This tree house is located in between Tappen and Sunnybrae, British Columbia, where it is situated on a hobby farm in a rural, wooded setting near Shuswap Lake. Comprised of 10 acres of land that backs onto Bastion Mountain, the farm is set on a dead-end road, providing plenty of peace and quiet. Exploring the farm, guests will find a vegetable garden and a variety of animals, such as pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and a parrot.

The surrounding forest is home to many species of wildlife, including deer, moose, black bears, cougars, and coyotes—the latter three of which guests will not need to worry about while staying at the property, thanks to its five-foot tall fence and the two dogs.

Within walking distance of the farm, guests will find trails on which they can go on walks through the forest. Just a little over two miles to the south lie the pristine waters of Shuswap Lake, along the shore of which guests will find Sunnybrae Vineyards and Winery, Sunnybrae Park, Paradise Point Provincial Park, and Herald Provincial Park. The latter is home to the scenic Margaret Falls.

The farm is about an hour and 45 minutes from Kelowna, British Columbia, where the nearest international airport is located. Read More
