About Liz Wilson

Penticton has been our home for more than 35 years, we have raised our family here and truly enjoy all the wonderful outdoor activities that the Okanagan Valley has to offer. We are pleased to offer our visitors a comfortable and cheerful vacation rental home and to help make their holiday perfect in anyway we can!

Liz Wilson purchased this house in 2012

Why Liz Wilson chose Penticton

Red Rose Cottage is a mid-century 1960's post and beam house with a bright southern exposure and an absolutely glorious blooming garden. The moment we walked in to the house we felt it's warmth and comfort! Red Rose Cottage is our home and we are happy to make it available for vacation rentals throughout the year.

We love the location as we are close to grocery stores, shopping, cafes and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

The back garden is an oasis! Relaxing under the huge shade trees after a day of exploring the Okanagan is heavenly. The climbing roses are a scented and colorful backdrop to our cedar deck, patio and fishpond. The kitchen is bright, well equipped and steps away from the deck and patio. In 2016 we added a 2nd bathroom, central air conditioning, new flooring and a family room to Red Rose Cottage. You will have lots of space for your family and friends! Our location is very central. From Red Rose Cottage it is easy to walk, cycle or drive to everything in Penticton.

Red Rose Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at the Red Rose Cottage. We always have an amazing stay, and are booked already for next summer. We find this rental to be clean, well maintained, beautiful back yard, and the owners are wonderful people that go out of their way to ensure our stay is amazing! I would definitely recommend this property. Note, there is a drive to get to either beach, and off a major road, but we didn't hear much traffic.

Red Rose Cottage did not dissapoint :o)

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the lovely Red Rose Cottage. The house is well kept, spacious and well equipped.

It was perfect for our family; we had everything we needed, and the beautiful garden with a very nice deck was like a cherry on top of the cake. We weren't the only ones who loved the garden. A deer family was a frequent visitor. We have so many great pictures and we've made some wonderful memories.

THANK YOU Liz and James for the postcard from Poland!! That was a very special highlight for us; how thoughtful of you to do that. Thank you so much.

We will recommend your cottage to our friends and we really would like to be back in the future. You guys are so lucky to call Penticton your home.

Thank you again for sharing your lovely Red Rose Cottage with us :o)

Red Rose Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable home with a beautiful deck and backyard. Flooring could use some updating. Driveway is on a very busy road with view obstructed by hedges, so care is necessary when departing.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments! We were busy last winter and spring updating our home and making it a more comfortable place to stay with a second bathroom and a large TV room in the basement. New flooring is on our to-do list for this fall! Liz and James Red Rose Cottage

Red Rose Cottage, a delightful sale at a Penticton Gem

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice week long early June stay at the Red Rose Cottage. Everything we could possibly need was provided.

Cecile the caretaker was delightful, and instantly responsive when we had a TV issue.

The place is far more spacious then you would think from reading the description. There is a huge living room, a very private and quiet bedroom, a bathroom and a bonus room just in the downstairs. The upstairs has two bedrooms, an office room that could easily be used as a bedroom (with a provided blow up bed), another living room, dining area, and generously stocked kitchen. The back yard is delightful, a water garden with a large deck, lots of flowers and trees, lots a birds, and even an occasional stray deer.

The only downside is that Carmi is a fairly busy street, separating a residential and industrial area, so the upstairs bedroom facing the street can be somewhat loud early in the morning.

The location is a very straight drive to the convention center (about 2 miles), and walking distance to Safeway, IGA, and most importantly, close to Earls!

I checked out this morning, and the cleaning deposit was refunded by the time I got home.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Red Rose Cottage. We do get deer passing through our garden, it is all part of living in Penticton! I am so glad that Cecile was able to sort out the TV technology problem. Red Rose Cottage is very convennient to shopping and an easy drive to the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre and the South Okanagan Events Centre. thank you Liz and James

Great Stay at Red Rose Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband, my in laws and I stayed at Red Rose Cottage from Sept 11-16th. The house was very nice, with a beautiful back yard. The house was very clean with all the amenities you would need. The owners had even left us coffee, tea, juice and coffee cream. I had thought that when we arrived we would have to run out and buy paper towel napkins and toilet paper but this was also supplied. There was even shampoo and body wash if you had forgot your own. The beds were all comfortable with nice duvets. The bathroom was newly done and very spacious. You were provided with lots of towels. They also had games, cards and a big ping pong table in the basement. You could easily walk to everything you needed if you didn't have a car. The grocery stores etc are only about 15 mins away.

We really enjoyed watching all the birds at the bird feeders and bird bath. There was even three deer, a mother and two young that came to visit and eat the apples from the apple tree.

I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a group of people. We had 6 people in our group and there was more than enough room. The house is in a quiet area close to all amenities.

The property owners were easy to deal with right from booking to check out.

We will definitely stay again.

There are so many things to do in Penticton and Red Rose Cottage is ideally located! The wineries are close by and many pleasant days can be spent visiting them to see their unique locations and to sample the bounty of their vineyards. The long, warm summer days are perfect for outdoor activities and sight seeing. Both Okanagan and Skaha lakes are truly wonderful for swimming or exploring by boat or kayak. Cyclists of all types will love the roads, single-track trails and the KVR trail.

Winter visitors can ski, board or snowshoe at Apex Mountain Resort or Nickel Plate Nordic Centre. Both are about a 45 minute drive from Red Rose Cottage.

We can help you with holiday suggestions!
