This wild & whimsical bohemian, eco-farm stay will wow you!

The space
The Beach Bedroom in The Garden Cottage is a peaceful place to stay. Great for guests who want to have community and also quiet space to themselves. The cottage features a cozy double bedroom, and a large, spacious red studio bedroom with a bathroom shared between them.

*** The Garden Cottage has a shared bathroom and a communal tea station in the shared kitchen area for our farm stay guests, with a full size fridge, glasses for water and wine, tea mugs, and kettle but is not equipped for cooking big meals.

Across the gardens, the Main House is home to the Proctor Family, international guests and interns who apprentice at Made with Love Urban Farm. Join us on the pool deck patio "wireless cafe" or great room for socially distanced brunch (10am) or farm table dinners (6-8pm) in the evening if your timing is right. Our gift to you! If you would like to contribute and invest in our local ethical small farm food system there is a donation jar in the great room. Thank-you. Kuk'stemc. Namaste.

Made with Love Urban Farm is a sustainable eco community - everything here is a little bit different. We like our life as natural as we can get it, we clean with baking soda and vinegar, we use unscented natural laundry soap and recycle, repair, reuse or upcycle everything we can to keep garbage out of our landfills and consume as little as possible. Our food is made with tons of vegetables and our community loves essential oils, flowers and herbs, but loathes cigarettes, vaping, synthetic perfume & fragrance.

Our urban organic food forest farm hosts international volunteers, permaculture interns, guests and our family of six - on half a riverside acre in a suburban neighbourhood in the city of Kamloops with free range bunny Sophia, the wonder chicken Beyonce and her band of real Canadian Climbing Chickens and a small dog named Bella running around our fruit tree gardens to entertain you.

Wander through the gardens or across the estuary to the nature trails along the Thompson River at McArthur Park. At Made with Love Urban Farm, we practice Biodynamic Permaculture and have many fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, greens, mushrooms, flowers and herbs. Join us in the main house kitchen to learn about nutritional healing, fermentation and whole food cooking. Meditate in the gardens, soak in the hot tub or dig in with our international volunteers to get your hands in the dirt to learn about edible and medicinal plants, wild foraging and permaculture plantings. Beautiful local hiking, paddling, and twice weekly farmers' market, May-October.

Remember to book a Sagebrush Picnic during your stay and join us on some real Canadian Outdoor Adventures. Please ask us about a guided nature walk or canoe trip to Rabbit Island, a Farm to Table Cooking Class Dinner, Wild crafting, Herb-drying or Jam-making workshops or ski shuttle service - we are only 25 mins from Harper Mountain and 45 mins from Sun Peaks Lodge!

Guest access
Guests can walk a few paces from their front door to our secluded clothing optional pool deck, hot tub & chill space, nestled into private woods with river & mountain views. Large tables for outdoor dining, BBQ, lounge chairs and English country garden surround the aqua green alkaline copper crystal swimming pool. Ducks and deer play in the estuary below and the riverbank is filled with delicious black currants and wild cherries. There is a steep path down to the water for canoes, kayaks and paddle boarders to access the main Thompson River in the spring season.

Big happy conscious community environment.

Lovely old farmstead in a quaint vintage subdivision in Brocklehurst 5 mins drive to airport. Back gardens and pool deck overlook the river estuary across from McArthur Park. Very private, secluded natural landscape but only a few minutes from downtown Kamloops, right on a bus route. Our property is right along the Kamloops Rivers Trail for great access to outdoor recreation in the City of Kamloops.
