Cute & Cozy is a charming little gem, a perfect gathering place for family and friends. Recent renovations offer visitors a modern open-concept living area with exposed rafters and comfy window seats. Enjoy an early morning cup of coffee or tea on the patio or relax in the garden with a chilled glass of Okanagan wine while watching the children play tag on the lawn or build roads in the large sandbox.

The area offers numerous golf courses, miles of hiking and cycling trails and rock climbing at world reknown Skaha Bluffs. Sun worshippers can soak in the rays on numerous beaches or enjoy boating and water sports on Okanagan Lake just minutes away or drive ten minutes to the other end of the city to the parks and beaches of Skaha Lake. For years Penticton has been the go-to vacation spot for couples, families and sports enthusiasts and continues to be so.

About Nancy Reger

Ever since I studied the Okanagan Valley when I was in grade school, I vowed to myself that someday I would live in this paradise. So when my children moved here with my grandchildren, I got my opportunity. My husband and I found this little gem in 2003 and seized the day. We chose this 1928 house because we could envision the unique aspects and inner beauty this house had to offer with a little imagination and hard work. Sadly in the middle of renovating our house my husband passed away, but with the help of family and friends we finished the transformation we had envisioned. Being centrally located has made it easy for friends and family to drop by and we have shared many wonderful memories together in my little piece of heaven from sunny BBQ's in my large back yard to cozying up on the window seat watching the snow fall outside. With the grandkids growing up, I now want to share this lovely retreat with the world.

Nancy Reger purchased this house in 2003

What makes this house unique

This summer rental is unique in its proximity to so many of Penticton's events and venues. One can be relaxing in the backyard, be drawn to the sound of a concert from Gyro Park and just pick up and go being there within two minutes dressed as you are.

Comfortable and great quality

Very nicely finished and maintained house. Everything in house is plentiful and very good quality. Secluded and shaded backyard for play/dinner/drinks. Great location; two blocks walk to Front St. and Main St. and the beach.

Great little house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weeks stay in Nancy's house. We had everything we needed and the house quickly became our "home" due to its cozy feeling. We found we needed little a/c as the surrounding trees sheltered the house from the hot sun and kept the house cool. My favourite spot was the backyard with sun or shady spots all day long, very private and comfy lawn furniture. Mama deer and her fawns were exciting guests and we looked forward to their visits (although Nancy's gardens suffered greatly!)

I would definitely stay here again.

Great house in Penticton

  • 4 of 5

Nancy's house was wonderful. My wife and I and our 3 year old stayed there for a week. It was as if we took our own house on vacation with us. Everything we needed was there. Bedrooms and bathroom were all very nice. Wonderful location close to main street. Lovely backyard with deer roaming in from time to time!

all in all a great house

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Aside from the rainy weather, we had an excellent stay at this wonderful, cozy home. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to have both a relaxing vacation by using the beautiful backyard yet still be walking distance to downtown and the beaches!
