Mackie Lake House

Mackie Lake House is located in Coldstream, British Columbia. Only minutes from downtown Vernon. Paddy Mackie bequeathed the house and property to the Mackie Lake House Foundation for the enjoyment and education to the public.

This gorgeous lake house highlights the type of homes built by those who settled in the area in the early 1900s. Mackie Lake House was built on five acres overlooking Kalamalka Lake in 1910 and is an exceptional example of the type of country mansion from this time period. The moment you step into the house, you are transported back to a simpler time when life moved at a slower pace.

In our tours explore the historical elegance of times past as you learn the story of the Mackie family, the tales of the extraordinary collections preserved within this 1910 Country Mansion. Learn about the architecture, history and characteristics of this unique home and the families that lived here and discover their place in the rich history of Coldstream.

Capturing the essence of days gone by, Tea is served with fine bone china on the verandah overlooking the serene gardens and lake. Kick back and relax in a beautiful setting with your friends, your family and take some time for you.

For a magical summer evening enjoy Music at Mackie on the spacious grounds with a spectacular lake view.  It is the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the sounds of summer, so join us for one or all of our outdoor concerts. 

Tour, Tea and Concert tickets are available online at
