The development of The Cottages at Osoyoos Lake resort community was done with great consideration for the environment. 54% of the total development site was preserved as greenspace, with two wildlife corridors. Resort landscaping incorporates drought-resistant native plants. The focus of life here is outdoor time and deep appreciation for nature.
All homes are heated and cooled with a closed-loop geothermal heat pump, resulting in a significant overall reduction of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
