Westside Rd. & Fintry Neighbourhoods

Escape to the wilderness and waterfront.

A breathtaking area with historical significance, the West Kelowna neighbourhood of Fintry and communities along Westside Road once served as part of the Hudson Bay Trail fur-trading route.

Lying on the west shore of Okanagan Lake, Fintry is named after the “Laird of Fintry,” Capt. James Cameron Dun-Waters, a Scottish newspaper owner and captain in the First World War, who settled there in 1909. Today, his preserved manor and estate are part of a historical landmark in Fintry Provincial Park.

Sparsely populated and beautifully situated, Fintry and the Westside Road area have everything from modern waterfront developments to sprawling acreages surrounded by forest. With a mix of vacation homes and permanent residences, the area is accessed by the winding Westside Road from Kelowna in the south, and Vernon in the north.

Live lakeside with your own private beach, or up in the woods with views of the mountains and Okanagan Lake, and enjoy the silence that Fintry and Westside Road provides.

Lora + Christy's Take

" Located along the west shores of Okanagan Lake across from Downtown Kelowna, this area is sought after for seasonal owners and people wanting a slower pace."
