Penticton house description
WELCOME TO THE ORCHARD HOUSE
A lovely home for a summer getaway or an Okanagan Hockey School rental. Also great for small groups enjoying the Fall and Spring Wine Festivals.
The orchard house is situated on the West Bench with a sweeping view of Okanagan lake, Naramata Bench, the city of Penticton and Skaha Lake. Enjoy your stay in a quiet peaceful orchard setting of one acre, complete with quail, pheasants and deer.
The house is post and beam construction with a wood-burning fireplace. There is one bedroom with a queen-size bed and bathroom upstairs, and two bedrooms each with a queen bed, and a bathroom downstairs. Also downstairs is a bedroom with two single beds and a den with a queen-size sofa bed.
The kitchen is a full working kitchen with a separate dining area with a view. Art in the house is original prints and paintings created by the owner Jan Crawford. Her latest pieces can be viewed at the Lloyd Gallery on Front Street in Penticton and the Hambleton Gallery in Kelowna. All art is available for purchase - please contact the Artist.
The orchard consists of 25 fruit trees surrounding the house. There is an upper and lower orchard to enjoy outside games, such as bacci ball and croquet. On hot summer days the covered deck can be used for outdoor dining and barbecues. A music system for outside is provided. An RV can be parked in the 50 foot paved driveway.
A five minute drive down the hill to town enables you to enjoy Okanagan lake, floating down the river channel, biking, mini Golf, or renting go carts. If you are an Okanagan Hockey Academy rental you are very close to the rink.
The Farmer's market is a must and is on Saturday mornings 8am-12 noon. Get there early to buy local fruit ,veggies, baking, arts and crafts.
Golf- Three courses are available within a short 10 min. drive - Penticton Golf Club, Wow Golf (scenic executive nine-hole) and Summerland Golf club. Within easy driving reach are Inkameep Canyon and Fairview Mtn in Oliver.
Water sports- Penticton benefits from it's unique setting situated between two lakes - Okanagan to the North and Skaha to the south. Pick a beach and get out on the lake. Rent a ski boat, water ski, ski-doo, and para sailing. Quieter beaches can be found in Summerland and Trout Creek to the North and Three Mile Beach and Naramata beach on the west side of Okanagan lake.
KVR trail- tour the historic Kettle Valley recreation trail, through vineyards and orchards, ideal for cycling, walking or jogging. A great walk for photo opportunities. This trail ends at Hillside Winery. Stop in and have lunch.
Winter time-Apex resort is a short scenic drive (45 min) into the mountains above Penticton. It has downhill and cross country skiing in the winter and mountain biking and hiking in the summer.
Festivals & events-Penticton has events throughout the year. There is a spring and Fall Wine festival, Jazz festival, Hockey school, and Challenge Penticton triathlon at the end of August. To learn more about these events go to a tourism site for Penticton.

Great house for a multi family vacation
Great house for a multi family vacation
Quiet area only 5 minutes from town. This house is well equiped and has everything one needs to enjoy a holiday away from home. Comfortable for multi-generational use. Views to die for! Good photos of the property, but the "real thing" is even better. Great yard with sheltered patio. We all loved Penticton. We were there for the Ironman competition - appreciated Orchard House location as it's a little removed from the busyness of the town. Members of our group enjoyed the beach, wineries, fruit stands, Theo's restaurant, Kettle Valley Railway, bike trails, grocery stores, thrift shops and antique store.
