About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


This year VRBO is displaying rates in US$ which is very annoying. To find CAD$, click on the "rates" tab above - on the page that comes up, click on the little arrow directly right of the little US flag (top right) to get a drop down menu - click on the Canadian flag to see Canadian rates displayed. Be aware that “Get an instant quote” and “Avg. nightly $__” on the far right will, strangely, remain showing US funds though.


Crooked Tree is only minutes from Penticton yet upon arrival the feeling is of a far greater distance. Here above the Naramata Bench Wineries life is quiet, private, serene . . . heavenly! The sky is vast, the view superb, the sunsets breathtaking and the stargazing delightful. Deer are frequent visitors to our 10-acre property, elk are sighted now and again, hawks and other such creatures of flight swoop past . . . it is our sanctuary and we would love to share it with you.

Our Suites (the Fir, Pine and Spruce) are very spacious at 1200 square feet on two levels; they are totally private and completely self-contained. The suites have three private decks; two are on the view elevation and afford amazing vistas across and up Okanagan Lake and one is at each guest entry area providing an alternate spot for relaxation as well as a BBQ area. Professionally and beautifully designed, the suites each have a king bedroom, a full bath with dual-head tiled shower & jetted tub, a powder room, a fully equipped kitchen, two seating areas that double as additional sleeping spaces, a 'real' queen bed in the quiet back area of the loft level, TV DVD & satellite, stereos, internet and many other creature comforts!

Crooked Tree is located between Penticton and Naramata Village. Penticton, from which we are a 10 minute drive, is a place like no other to visit. Virtually any interest is pursued here - some even year round! The list does not stop at wine tasting (there are over 100 wineries in our area); dining, shopping, the visual arts, theatre, nature walks, hikes, mountain bike riding, all water sports, rock climbing, beaches, heritage attractions, horseback riding, festivals, parades, music, channel cruising, farmer’s market and fruit stands are among the pleasurable activities visitors and locals alike enjoy . . . you name it and we’ve probably got it . . . all in a spectacular setting.

Penticton is an idyllic place with natural beauty bordered by lakes to the north and south and by mountains to the east and west. The climate is one of the most attractive in Canada with short and mild winters, early spring seasons, comfortable humidity and typically hot summers providing comfort for virtually anyone at any time of the year. Penticton’s relatively small size (population approx 35,000) makes getting around simple, finding things a breeze and making new friends easy.

Naramata is a delightful village about a fifteen minute drive from Crooked Tree. The route there is truly wondrous, providing expansive views of vineyards, orchards and Okanagan Lake. Known as The Naramata Bench, this area has the highest concentration of wineries in the Okanagan and they are all “just down the hill” from Crooked Tree.

Whatever your travel goals (relaxation, business, visiting family, touring), you will be sure to be happy at Crooked Tree. We welcome any and all inquiries and would love to host you and yours . . .

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights in August 2016 and it was excellent. Units are outfitted with everything and having a bbq was a real bonus. Alix did a great job to make sure we had everything we needed. Wine tour group picked us up at the door and the Naramata Bench was worth the visit. Not in the middle of town but 2 decks overlooking the deck what more do you need. We rented a boat to travel lake and it was truly amazing and recommended.

I would book again in a heartbeat

Fantastic Retreat with Stellar Views

  • 5 of 5

Not too much I can say that has not already been said. This is my 5th year in a row staying in the Penticton area and this place has been my favorite.

Yes it is a bit of a trek up the hill to get to, but there is no other way to get such an unbelievable view! We loved the seclusion of it and really felt the location to be perfect for our needs.

Alix is wonderful to deal with and the amenities were all as advertised - clean, modern, and private.

Stunning place, very private, modern and clean, Alix has done a fabulous job to make this a 5 star location to stay. If you don't mind being a wee bit a out of town, but the great thing about the location is, its actually very close to everything, including just a short trip down the hill to Naramata and all the wine you can buy!

Perfect Location - Stunning View

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from long weekend (Thanksgiving) in Penticton, where we stayed in the “Fir” Suite at Crooked Tree. And it all started when we were welcomed, not only by Alix, but also by Forrest and Bear as we came up the drive - two beautiful, very friendly, and well-behaved Burnese. No problems with wild life here while these guys are on the job!

It was our first trip to the interior, and we found it spectacular. The view from the suite was stunning, overlooking the Lake and vineyards below. Ideally situated up the hill just minutes from Naramata Road along which many of the wineries are located.

The suite itself was fab. So nicely designed and furnished. Clearly Alix and Ken have considered everything with a view to providing more than the bare essentials. Well-equipped kitchen; beautiful bathroom/shower with under-floor heating (mmm so nice); king-size bed…I could go on, but then you’d have nothing to discover for yourselves!! ? And everything so clean – even the BBQ! Thanks Alix, your attention to detail was very much appreciated.

Who knows when we’ll do this trip again, but we’d certainly plan to stay again when we do.

Awesome place to stay in the Okanagan!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here at Crooked Tree for three nights and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

The owners Alix and Ken were incredibly courteous and helpful. They live onsite, but layout of the suites ensures that there is lots of privacy.

The quality of the suite we stayed in was top notch. The layout and decor of the suite was well thought out, particularly the kitchen, which had everything we needed to make all our meals onsite.

I would definitely recommend Crooked Tree to anyone looking for a place to get away in the Okanagan. The only thing that may detract from this rental for some travelers is that it is located a fair distance (10 mins drive uphill) from Pentiction, so it may not be an ideal choice if you need goods and services to be footsteps from your door.
