4 Reasons to have your Wedding at La Casa Guest House

Are you looking for a Wedding venue?  Thinking British Columbia makes the ideal setting?  Well check out La Casa Guest House – a Spanish style villa that has it all.  Check out our top 4 reasons to host your wedding here:

  1. The location is beautiful.

    Tucked away on a hillside 40 minutes from Kelowna, with jaw-dropping views of Lake Okanagan, La Casa is remote and romantic. Right next door to the property is Fintry Provincial Park – perfect for hiking, walking or taking those wedding photos.  Not to mention that you’re right by the lake so kayaking, boating and paddle boarding are all optional activities.  There are so many lovely secluded areas at La Casa so you can have a little bit of everything in your Wedding Portraits – lake, mountains & forests. How spectacular does that sound?

  2. The terrace views.

    There really is nothing else we can say about the views from the Terrace because they are just divine. The terrace is brilliant for the wedding ceremony, reception, breakfast, lunch and dinner!  You’ll love spending time with your family out on this wonderful balcony – there is room for 90 people here, so if it’s a small “home away from home” wedding you’re after then this will be right up your street.

  3. The weather is divine.

    Situated in Kelowna, in the heart of the Okanagan, La Casa is no stranger to sunny skies.  Expect blue, clear days and sometimes scorching temperatures, if you choose to have your wedding in the summer.   A winter wedding won’t be that much different, except you will probably see some snow!

  4. The property has everything you need.

    From a private honeymoon suite where the bride can get ready with her bridesmaids away from the groom, to a wraparound terrace that’s perfect for ceremony or reception… the Guest House has it all!  There are nine large bedrooms that sleep up to 26 guests, an expansive kitchen, private movie theatre, banquet room and more – make your Wedding into the ultimate family and friends getaway. You’ll make memories here that last forever!

If you’re not convinced by these photos, then take a look at what Wedding Photographer – Rozalind Ewashina – had to say about the venue:

I love taking photos at La Casa for a few reasons! I love the location (right on the lake and secluded enough that it’s a getaway for most people! There are tons of forest spots near by as well as the cute little town of Fintry) and of course the stunning views from the balcony! I think it’s incredible that couple’s can be married on the terrace and then have the reception/cocktail hour out on the patio as well. It offers great views and you can really enjoy the warm Okanagan summers while celebrating with family and friends 🙂 I especially love that the Honeymoon room at the top of the guesthouse is completely secluded (with a private balcony and hot tub!) so that the bride and her girls can get ready without worrying about seeing the groom!”

Happy New Year!

It’s that time of year again – say hello to 2018, and bye to 2017. Thank you to all the guests that stayed with us in 2017!  We hope you have had a lovely holiday season and are looking forward to what this new year will bring. 

January is the perfect time to reflect on all the highs and lows of 2017.  It is also the time to make some awesome New Year’s resolutions!  Perhaps there was something you thought you would do in 2017 that you didn’t get a chance to?  Or maybe you have realized that there’s something missing out of your current routine?  If you’re struggling to think of anything, then why not check out some of our ideas!

  • Spend more time outdoors

  • Take a family vacation

  • Organize that reunion you’ve been planning

  • Find a new hobby to try

  • Read more books

  • Enjoy the weather, no matter what

  • Get more creative in the kitchen

And guess what? All of these resolutions can be achieved by staying with us at La Casa Cottages.  We can help you pick the ideal cottage for your summer holiday, or advise you on the best dates to hold a reunion with your childhood friends.  All the cottages at La Casa are suited to cosy nights in by the fireplace, or relaxing outside on the patio.  Bring a novel that’s been sitting on your bookshelf, or a recipe book that you’ve been wanting to delve into, and take some time out to indulge in your own company.

If that is not enough encouragement to get you interested in taking a vacation at La Casa, then why not check out all the awesome outdoor activities you can do in Kelowna and the surrounding areas?  The possibilities are endless!

Whatever you decide to do this year, we hope you make it just as amazing as 2017 and more!
Happy January!
