About Ken and Valerie White

Every time our family visits they fall in love all over again with this little piece of heaven. Our grandchildren can hardly wait to visit us here or maybe it is jumping in the pool they are anticipating the most! Our son and one son-in-law love to gold pan in the river and our second son-in-law can sit for hours fishing for Cut-Throat Trout. We have hosted a crowd of 70 to celebrate our 30th anniversary and hosted dinners for four around a camp fire. We welcome you to relax and unwind to the sound of Goat River rumbling over the rocks.

Ken and Valerie White purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Ken and Valerie White chose Creston

As children we spent holidays in this area every year. When we saw the opportunity to own a piece of waterfront in the beautiful Creston Valley we couldn't say "No." We love the veggie and fruit markets that line the highway through Creston and we have our favourite orchards in Erickson where we buy directly from the growers. The climate is amazing with long, hot summers and mild winters. The Goat River is a living, moving part of our life at Goat River Lookout and one can hear the sound of the river and rapids any where you are on the 7 and a 1/2 acres. Being on water was vital and the lovely house is just a bonus. Every ceiling is vaulted and the kitchen is a cook's dream come true. We have updated the property over the last 8 years by countrifying the 90s kitchen, installing a glass peninsula shower in the master, putting in new luxury vinyl planking throughout, new shutter style blinds, a new roof, and this year we are putting in two efficient wood stoves in place of the two fireplaces. The stove that straddles the kitchen/dining area and living room has a bake oven and cooking surface. We will be uploading pictures of the stoves and marble tiled walls as soon as this is complete. We also dismantled a roomy but leaky jet tub in the master bathroom and are installing a modern claw-foot tub. Pictures of the Master bath will be uploaded soon. We hope this is the last reno for a while!

What makes this bungalow unique

The sound of the water and the smell of the cedars and firs will assault your senses as you enter the property. This is what we first noticed on the day 8 years ago when we first viewed our place. We have a cherry tree that you are welcome to pick in season and apple and plum trees that are ready in the fall. We love to gold pan in the river and have a vial of gold specks as our reward for cold hands and feet and sore backs. Our property came with two cats but now only Miss Kitty rules the roost. She is a big tabby who lives in the garage and is NOT allowed in the house. This feline is a big tub of furry love and many of our guest book comments state that Miss Kitty was the favourite attraction. Our grandkids run to see if Miss Kitty is still waiting for them and she gets the first snuggles. We love that there is no cable or satellite TV and we unplug, unwind, watch old movies on the TV/DVD/VCR, read books or play games in the evening.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed your beautiful home. Excellent space and pool.

Goat River Lookout is Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th trip to Goat River Lookout.

For us, it is wonderful. Such a relaxing and peaceful place.

It has all of the amenities that we need and want.

We just love the river and the pool. Keeps us cool and entertained all week long.

Thanks again, Ken and Val, for opening your home to us.

Your home was perfect in every way. Location-check- close to town, but completely private with a beautiful river, surrounded with cedars and beautiful vegetation. House-check- sometimes we have been at vacation homes that might just have salt and pepper in the pantry....not here! House was completely equipped with anything and everything you might need, beds comfortable, spotlessly clean and so many interesting decor touches. We loved exploring the area and had perfect weather! Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Linda, you were great guests and we would welcome you back anytime. Our housekeeper said she has never had such a clean house after the guests have left! So glad you enjoyed our home. Valerie and Ken.
