Idabel estate was an incredible time. It was absolutely beautiful up there. Quiet and relaxing. Inside the house is so cozy and the big kitchen was awesome for cooking up meals. The garage is a big games room that was total blast. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. The house is placed in a perfect location on a property that has something for everyone. Kayaks, hot tub, sauna, out door games, fir pit, swing sets, the list goes on and on. You are a two minute walk to the lake and it makes for an amazing day full of fun. This is by far one of my favourite places I have ever stayed. Big thanks to James, he was a great host and was there to help with anything we needed at anytime. 10 out of 10!

Beautiful house and absolutely stunning scenery. The host was phenomenal!
Just spent the weekend at this beautiful venue. Lots of space to spread out and enjoy while soaking in the beauty of the surrounding area. Lots of walks down memory lane as we sat outside by the camp fire and roasted s’mores with all our little people and then retired indoors to a roaring fire in the wood stove keeping us toasty all night in such comfortable beds. Oh yes and as I rose in the morning a huge moose was standing in the muskeg from my top story, birds eye view bedroom trundling along looking in our direction!!! I just travelled all over Alaska and did not get that experience! Thanks for the beautiful stay and the memories. I would highly recommend this venue as well as return for a other visit!

I had the privilege of visiting Idabel Edtate this past weekend and it did not disappoint! Not only were we all able to celebrate our close friend getting married in a great atmosphere, but we also had every single thing that we needed. James went above and beyond to make sure that our questions were answered. We were so thankful that Idabel accommodated all of us so easily, as we were a large group. The bride to be loved her relaxing getaway. Idabel is beautiful, and I have no doubt that I will be returning with my husband and kids very soon! Thanks, James!

This place is so beautiful and the owner (James) exceeded our expectations with his hospitality!
I stayed at Idabel Estates in June for a bachelorette weekend and everyone commented on how beautiful and cozy the house and surrounding area was. From the moment we arrived James was there to greet us and give us a tour of the property. The house is much more spacious in person! I was worried about sleeping arrangements and where we were going to put extra beds but I had nothing to worry about. Not only did James set up two extra beds for us ahead of time but we had plenty of room in the loft (Master Suit) to set up another bed. We were a large group, but we all lived and slept comfortably.
During the tour James answered all our questions about the house, the barn, and how to get to the lake (which is a 3 minute walk from the house). James also provided us with plenty of chopped wood and kindling so that we could build a fire with easy (which we did every night). Overall, our experience at Idabel Estate was great! I would love to visit again for a family vacation or another girls get away.

My friends and I stayed at the beautiful Idabel Estate in May. The estate is nestled in a peaceful area, surrounded by nature! The home is clean, furnished beautifully and is very spacious, making it the perfect place for family vacations and getaways with friends. James was an amazing host, ensuring all the small details were taken care of! There are loads of activities to do year round as there is a lake, Big White, wineries and downtown Kelowna nearby. You feel like you can get off the grid, but are still close enough to amenities should you need them. I highly recommend Idabel for anyone looking to escape the everyday hustle and experience the amazing Okanagan valley! Thank you James for an awesome stay. We can't wait until our next visit!
