Why Choose Vaseux Lake Vacation Rentals?

If you are interested in seeing abundant wildlife in a Park sanctuary setting, you may want to consider staying in the area in some of the Vaseux Lake vacation rentals.

Vaseux Lake is located 5 minutes from Okanagan Falls and 20 minutes from Penticton in the South Okanagan.  The area is well known for the 12 hectacre Vaseux Lake Park which has been a waterfowl sanctuary since 1923.  The focus of Vaseux Lake Park is the preservation of riparian and wetland breeding habitat necessary to support wildlife.  The lake was once an important part of the canoe route used by the fur traders.  The park preserves an abundant wildlife population including mountain goats, California big horned sheep, and a wide variety of bird species including great horned owl, canyon wren, chukar partridge, woodpeckers, sage thrashers and the burrowing owl.  Canada's smallest hummingbird and the magnificent golden eagle can also be found here.  Also toads, beavers, muskrats, rabbits and deer also make the sanctuary their home.

If you choose Vaseux Lake vacation rentals you will also be close to the Vaseux Wildlife Centre, located along Highway 97, at the north end of Vaseaux Lake, between the communities of Oliver and Okanagan Falls.  It was created to provide visitors to the South Okanagan an opportunity to experience the uniqueness of this beautiful setting.  An information kiosk provides extensive information about the area, the vegetation and the wildlife.  A 20 minute round trip trail leads you down to the marsh and along the boardwalk through the marshes to the bird blind.

The area has 12 campsites and day use areas located close to the beach and is ideal for hiking and biking on the Kettle Valley Trail.  Vaseux Lake vacation rentals will also give you access to other area activities including ice skating in the winter, fishing, kayaking, canoeing and wildlife viewing.  The city life is only minutes away with fine dining, shopping, night life and tours of the many local wineries.

Accommodations and vacation rentals in the Vaseux Lake area include luxury beach vacation homes as well as townhouses located at the Vaseux Lakefront Resort, right on the beach on the south edge of Vaseux Lake.
