About Linda Sheehy-Brownstein
Your Hosts: Linda and Bruce. We have enjoyed many trips to the Okanagan over the years. We purchased our 80 acre property and moved to Oliver at the end of 2007. After 25 plus years working in the film industry in Vancouver, Linda now enjoys running the High Chaparral Guest House. Bruce continues to commute, working on various film projects during the week. We live in a separate residence on the acreage with our house dog, Oliver.

Why Linda Sheehy-Brownstein chose Oliver
High Chaparral is unique and unlike anything else offered in the area. The scent of ponderosa pine and wild sage enchant the senses while the breeze whispers through the trees. Our property is home to many species of birds, including quail, grouse, sage thrashers, bluebirds, hummingbirds, eagles, owls, hawks and vultures. In the Spring many beautiful wild flowers cover the surrounding hills. Ancient deer paths are present throughout the acreage, still used today by our resident deer and are an easy hike for our guests. Oliver is home to world class restaurants and over 40 award winning wineries. Relax while enjoying the peacefulness our 80 acre property offers - privacy is yours in a gorgeous setting. We are stewards of our land and have signed a covenant with Okanagan Similkameen Stewardship Society to maintain the wildlife habitat on our property

Wilderness retreat with unbelievable views
This small adobe style guest house is spectacular. It’s a hidden gem just short drive from the main town of Oliver. If you love only the sound of birds and wildlife, this is the place to unplug, unwind and relax. The place was spotlessly clean, great linens and comfy bed. Like ‘glamping’, without sacrificing any comforts. The kitchen is well equipped and makes it the perfect spot to go pick up supplies and your favourite wines and bring back to cook up and enjoy the views. Fabulous spot, cannot wait to come back again. Check in was easy and Linda was available and came to meet us when we arrived. We loved our stay.
Hi Krista - thanks so much for your review. We enjoyed having you both and look forward to seeing you next time. We love your bagels. Thanks of much for bringing us some.
Perfect! The beauty and peace of the property of High Caparrel is exceptional. Very much enjoyed our stay and the abundant wildlife we encountered.
Linda was great to deal with and the property was just as described. Beautiful tranquil location. Bed was super comfy and kitchen well stocked. We got to see lots of wildlife and bears which was super cool. Would definitely book again. Thanks Linda!

We had a wonderful time. Great place to get some R&R. The views are spectacular, Linda was helpful the place was very clean and fully equipped. I would definitely recommend High Chaparral Guest House.
Perfect and peaceful
We couldn't have found a better place to stay and explore the South Okanagan. From the comfortable bed to the star-spattered skies, this is a perfect home. My favorite day? Being out on the porch in the comfortable chairs reading, bird-watching and observing the occasional deer or bear in the hills. We will be back again for more wonderful hospitality and tranquil evenings.
Thank you for your wonderful review. We enjoyed having you and look forward to next time. Thank you for leaving the guest house in such good nick.
