Kelowna - August - Dog Friendly modern cabins


I have spent all afternoon looking for somewhere to stay in Kelowna for the first week in August, two adults and a black lab!

Any ideas of somewhere modern / quirky that we wouldn't necessary find by an internet search?

Much thanks in advance,

Welcome to the forum. First Kelowna is not cabin country and, the first week in August is a 3 day weekend which is also the busiest time of the year for the Okanagan. you will be the lucky to find anything at such a late date. Everyone is on the internet if they are offering accommodation; you could try vrbo or homeaway and http://www.bbcanada.com/british_columbia.

as an example i looked at a friends quirky place in Penticton; he is full for july and august. you could look at http://www.barefootresort.ca/ they offer yurts. It is a brand new resort; it looks really good from driving by as it is on our route home. it could qualify as quirky.

Ummm, its a bit late for this year really. You'll be very lucky to find anything at all, let alone in the Okanagan which is a prime destination. Are you set on the Okanagan? How flexible can you be with your location. I start booking my summer trips in February and March to be sure to secure the spaces I want.

I wonder if you would have some luck north in Armstrong, Enderby or even Salmon Arm. Or south at Keremeos or Oliver. I think Osoyoos will be pretty busy because it's a hot spot and right on Hwy 3, but you might try there. Possibly Penticton. I think you've got your work cut out for yourselves.

Try this place but I doubt they have available accomodation at that time. You're trying to come last minute to Kelowna on the busiest week of the season. August 3-5 is the Center of Gravity festival in City Park and the entire town is booked solid. http://www.myracanyon.com/home.html

About 30 minute drive from Kelowna is Beaver Lake, which has cabins. Best of luck for anything in town.
