"Just like the listing says, this property was peaceful and private, with beautiful lake views. From the house, from the decks and the lower patio, we enjoyed viewing the lake, the trees, the birds and the night sky. It was nice just to look at forest below the property, as oppose to rooftops, and there is also a creek below which was pleasant to hear. Even though there are houses on either side, this property felt very private for relaxing outdoors.
There were lots of great morning walks to do from the house, including easy access to the KVR trail. We also found a nice loop down the Old Main Rd., through town, then back up along lower Debeck Rd (vineyards, orchards, woods, stunning properties and so on.) Great for the dog in the morning before it got too hot. The kids generally rode their bikes to the beach at Manitou, but pretty steep coming back up the hill (it was easy to just put them on the car rack at the end of the day.)
During out two week stay, we enjoyed day trips to Penticton (great sandy beach, Saturday morning market, etc.); Summerland (Rotary beach in lower town is fun, Summerland Sweets with a walk over the KVR trestle bridge is lovely in the evening); nice drive down to Oliver and Osoyoos, with a stop at the Desert Centre; cycling the KVR was spectacular, particularly between the little tunnel and Penticton. Mostly we just enjoyed relaxing days in Naramata, going to the beach, renting paddleboards, playing Frisbee, visiting wineries, etc.
The house truly does have everything you need, very clean with comfortable furniture and beds (nice king in the master bedroom.) The hosts were a pleasure to deal with and we would definitely consider returning to this property next year. Thank you!"
