“Excellent location for family vacation”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Stayed waterfront recently with family and friends and their kids. We rented 115 Malarkey Dr (red cottage on the promo photos) plus two other cottages. Overall impressions were very positive with some exceptions (see below). If you love lake swimming and cottage life, it would be hard to beat Veranda Beach for a family vacation.

Highlights:
- Location
- Marina
- Quality construction of cottages
- Pool, diner, and amenities for families
- Clean lake
- Very good service from all staff

Troubles in paradise:
- (some) Cranky owners who complain if you walk on grass in front of cottage
- Cranky guests at diner
- Poor bedding at 115 Malarkey
- Moderately equipped kitchen (missing some essentials - like a functioning wine opener)
- Duck poop on swim dock
- Oroville is nice but nothing special (no nice restaurants or notable places to visit except grocery store, sorry, Oroville...)

This is the most AMAZING little vacation spot! We've made the trip twice this year and are planning for a third....and skipping Hawaii all together! It's such a sweet, peaceful, relaxing little community...no place I've ever been has felt so relaxing and homey! It's literally surreal and just downright fabulous!! Simple, beautify.....and fabulous! Our new favorite spot! Our two year old can't stop saying "We go back to Veranda Beach daddy".....and cried when we pulled into our own piece of heaven at home on the lake! "No daddy...we go to Veranda Beach" Can't wait to return!

Prepare for an ideal get-away! The kids had such a blast (and a bit of a sun burn). Our 8 year old boy caught a fish with his bare-hands in the lake (he threw it back)… Not to be out done, our 11 year old girl caught a small turtle (she put it back as well)… our other 8 year old girl spent so much time in the pool she rubbed her feet raw. At night, we brought the family to the fire pit on the beach and made Smores, along with a number of other families that were staying there.

The family that went with us asked “How did you find such an ideal place? This is like driving into a movie!”… I couldn't have said it better!!! 

Anyway, it was such a fantastic weekend and we are already looking forward to our next trip to Veranda Beach!

Room Tip: It's definitely worth the extra money to stay in one of the cottages right on the lake. To have...

Just came back from spending the may long weekend at Veranda Beach and can honestly say, this place is fantastic. The accommodations (Cottages) are fantastic, the people, the staff...amazing and the new restaurant at the resort is serving up some delicious dishes at reasonable prices.

During the weekend we attended a wine release by Veranda Beach Estate Winery and tried some glorious wines...brought some home too...that's how good the wine is. Wish we could afford one of the new Hacienda Cottages overlooking the lake, but since this isn't in the budget, we have opted for visiting again two more times this summer and we can't wait.

Room Tip: Pick your cottage according to your family needs...we chose a cottage in the "Country" for...

My wife and I have travelled all over the word with our 3 kids. This is the only place we return to every year. It is a long drive from Calgary but it is beautiful and worth it! This is, by far, the best family vacation spot for small children ever! Quaint and not as busy as the Canadian side of Lake Osoyoos. The border is easy to cross if you need the action of the vinyards, golf and chain restaurants on the Canadian side. We have been there for 4 years and are looking forward to going back for the summer again. Our kids (6,4,2) talk about the "cabin place" with the candy store all year round.

Room Tip: Try to get a cabin on the flatter section of the property as it gives a large green space for kids t...

I stayed at Veranda Beach Resort for a week while on work travel. I was in a two bed, one bath house. The houses are so amazingly laid out and tastefully decorated. Someone was concerned about staying out here, and I told them "it's better than home." What I mean by that is that the lawn, the gardens, the house, everything is probably better than your house. The lake is beautiful, the pool is gorgeous, and the property magnificent. You even get a laundry room! I slept like a rock, so quiet and nice.

On the flip side, I am used to having someone come clean up and make my bed in a normal hotel, but if you are in Oroville, this is where you need to stay. Everything was really great.

The Diner was closed all week, open only on Friday-Sunday since we were here after labor day.

Room Tip: Obviously try to get a lakeview. Units that I liked better than mine were 135 Malarkey, 106 Fireroc...
