The hot summer weather has finally arrived, and it’s officially time to get away on a long-awaited vacation. What better place to relax with the family than at your own lakeside cottage in sunny Osoyoos?
“You might get only an inch of rain a month here,” says Eric Van Maren, partner of Van Maren Construction Group. The company is currently selling the Cottages at Osoyoos Lake, a gorgeous waterfront property with 284 cottages, tons of amenities and a close proximity to everything Osoyoos has to offer.
A wide range of people have been interested, but Van Maren notes that something did surprise him.
“Many of our buyers are retired or planning to be retired,” Van Maren says, chalking that up to “Osoyoos is a more relaxed pace of life.”
Many of these buyers are looking to live in their cottage full-time, a serious possibility when the homes range from 1,281 to over 3,000 square feet with two to four bedrooms. With 14 different floorplans to choose from, it won’t be hard to find the perfect space.
“I think the number of retired buyers speaks to the amenities that are available here,” Van Maren says. “These are detached homes for the price of condos.”
You’ll also get access to two swimming pools, a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse and 20 acres of lawn, on top of the 1,500 feet of waterfront and 500 feet of beach.
Buyers with families are also a big demographic at the cottages. Van Maren says the project is perfect for children, who can play on the beach or on the lawn and make friends with other cottage-goers.
The location is definitely the biggest draw for those who want a taste of waterfront living without a high price point.
“This is the warmest lake in British Columbia,” says Van Maren, adding that Osoyoos is also the wine capital of B.C. and has several golf course within 10 to 15 kilometres of the project.
