“This was my first experience with Airbnb and Yolanda couldn’t have made us feel more welcome. The house was exactly as described and above and beyond our expectations. The kitchen was amazing and had all the appliances needed to cook fabulous meals. The bed was extremely comfortable, as was the pull out bed. The building is very quiet and there is a great amount of space which makes it feel extremely comfortable and a fabulous place to relax.”

History

In 1894 Thomas Willing Stirling settled in Kelowna, establishing Bankhead Orchard, specializing in pears. In 1908 he built Cadder House, it was the largest private residence in Kelowna, named after the family’s original seat in Scotland – Cadder Larnarkshire.

Thomas returned to Britain to serve in the Navy during World War I, reaching the rank of Commander. He returned to Kelowna in 1919, but shortly returned to Scotland in 1921 after inheriting the family estate.

The following decades saw Cadder House used as a Nurse’s residence and then established as Oak Lodge Rest Home. It was restored and converted into condominium apartments in 2004.

Architectural Significance

It was the largest residence in Kelowna when it was built in 1908. It has an unusual and attractive cross-gabled design.

It has a steep gable roof with returned eaves and gabled dormers. It has multiple pane windows, wrap around open porch and decorative detailing.
