About the owner: Photo is of Ernie waterskiing....... why we go to the lake........
Why the Owner Chose Penticton: We rented a house on Kalamalka Lake in the North Okanagan for 10 years before buying a lakefront property. We were tired of old crappy beds and ugly shag carpet etc.. This house on Skaha Lake has everything we wanted when we were renting - a well set up and nicely appointed interior with great views of the lake, a good bedroom set up, nice comfortable beds, a great waterfront location, a great beach and dock set up, clean clear weed free water and close to all that Penticton has to offer.....
