Combine Work and Play with a Workcation at our Beautiful Veranda Beach Resort
With remote work becoming a new norm across the world, many travelers are choosing to extend their stay and work from their favorite vacation spot. A working vacation (also known as a “workcation”) is the concept of spending a week to a couple months getting to know a destination while working remotely. This new type of travel combined with work is appealing to many!
Tucked away in northern Washington along the east side of Lake Osoyoos lies one of the best up-and-coming workcation destinations, our own Veranda Beach Resort! We believe that our quaint lakeside resort and cottage rentals have just about everything remote professionals could want and need for a Washington workcation. Read on to see just how wonderful remote work from Veranda Beach Resort can be!
First and foremost, access to fast and reliable internet services is a necessity for any workcation. Remote workers need to know that the places they travel to will include quality internet services that are stable enough to handle video calls and a full workday. Here at Veranda Beach, every cottage is equipped with high-speed fiber optic wireless internet.
At minimum, you can expect 40 Mbps downloads and 8 Mbps uploads, more than sufficient to provide great internet use for multiple users.
In addition to great internet services, a working vacation requires a comfortable and productive space to work from. The cottages at Veranda Beach Resort are exceptional for this, as they are cozy, quiet, and provide multiple spaces suitable for work during your stay.
Need to hunker down inside and crank out a report? Grab a seat at the commonplace table to plug in and get it done. Want to enjoy the fresh air as you write up a new web-page? Take your laptop out to your veranda table and enjoy the fine weather. It doesn't get much better than that!
Gorgeous Okanogan Valley Scenery
Finally, a workcation needs to offer soothing escape from the workspace. The principle motivation for taking a working vacation is the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new environment and keep your mental health in check. Here along the shores of magnificent Lake Osoyoos in the Okanogan Valley, you'll have no shortage of breathtaking scenery to explore.
Our main season kicks into gear in late spring, and conditions stay exceptional through the fall. Off the clock and on the weekends, you can enjoy the various lake activities such as boating, water skiing, and fishing during the spring-fall seasons. On land there's also plenty of hiking trails, golf courses, cycling routes, and more fun area things to do. And, of course, there's always the relaxing option of just hanging out and sunbathing on the beach.
Although winter isn't our busiest season, you can still have a good deal of fun with a winter workcation at Veranda Beach Resort. The cottages are warm and cozy in the winter months, many fun events take place around town as well as at the resort, and there are opportunities for fun winter activities close by. Ski at Sitzmark or take advantage of cross-country skiing at the nearby Snopark. All that, plus Lake Osoyoos takes on a whole new level of beauty when surrounded by snow.
For these reasons, and many more you'll discover in-person, we believe that Veranda Beach Resort is a perfect destination for your Washington working vacation. Great internet, great accommodations, and great scenery are what goes into a great workcation, and we cannot wait to share the Veranda Beach experience with you soon!
