About the Property
Private 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom acreage, sleeps 8, with lake & mountain views
The house has all the modern amenities including dishwasher, oven, microwave, washer and dryer, iron and ironing board. The upstairs bathroom is spacious, with a shower and soaker tub. The downstairs bathroom is also large with a roomy shower. Each bedroom is very large with a king bed in the master bedroom, another king bed in the downstairs bedroom and a queen bed in the spare room upstairs. We have also placed a queen and twin bed in the downstairs living room for more space when sleeping, as well as cooler temperatures in the summer.
It's a quick 15 minute drive into the heart of Penticton for access to world- class sand beaches, golf courses, wineries, restaurants and facilities. Enjoy the hustle and bustle of big city attractions with a community feel. Or, if you would rather, head 20 minutes in the other direction from our house to access Apex Mountain Resort and Nickelplate hiking trails for back country adventures! There is plenty of room for parking, up to 5 vehicles, including a 2-bay car port.
Each room is very spacious, allowing guests to feel like they have space with a large group of people. This, combined with the large outdoors areas to enjoy, makes this property ideal for families who are looking to spend quality time together with access to many different activities and attractions.

Penticton is a bustling community in the heart of the Okanagan. It has two lakes to the north and south of it, and a beautiful mountain retreat at Apex Mountain Resort to the west of it. Average temperatures in July and August are 28 degrees Celcius, though usually you can expect anywhere between 25 to 40 degrees Celcius.
There are so many must-do activities, it would be impossible to list them all here! There are dozens of wineries and wine tours available. Golfers can choose from 5 different golf courses within a 20 minute drive. Love water sports? We have 2 world class beaches (Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake) with family-centered areas at each one. Boat, canoe, kayak sea-doo, and paddleboard rentals are available at each lake - you can also go para-sailing on Okanagan Lake! Maybe you would prefer to float down the channel from Okanagan to Skaha Lake. A bike enthusiast? The KVR trail offers breathtaking views for bikers of all abilities, or if you prefer a challenge, there are several mountain biking trails within 20 minutes drive of Penticton.
Like some action at night? There are dozens of outstanding restaurants, craft breweries, live theater and clubs available downtown. In addition, there are lots of festivals to look forward to each summer week and weekend!
If you're looking for local flavour, taking in the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings is a must-do! If you like ice-cream, you should make the trek to Tickelberry's in Okanagan Falls. It will be worth the time you wait in line! Local restaurant favourites of ours include Salty's (great lakeview, food and service!), The Cubby Hole and Theo's (fantastic Greek food) as well as Lake Breeze wintery (located along the Naramata Bench).
Prefer to get away from the tourists? Our house is located on 10 acres that backs onto Crown Land. There is front-door access to hiking trails, and Farleigh Lake is a 2 minute walk where you can canoe or kayak. Drive another 25 minutes and you will have access to the Nickelplate hiking trails, in which you can discover Nickelplate lake and the Okanagan Vista Loop. ATVs are permitted on some of these trails.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a young couple who have just had our first child. We are both teachers in town who love working with kids. Luck brought us to the Okanagan and we have been enjoying it ever since 2009. We bought this property because we love living away from the city, but enjoy having quick access to the amenities. We think Farleigh Lake is very special and look forward to welcoming you to our home!
Why the Owner Chose Summerland, BC, Canada:
This area of the Okanagan is very special - you have the best of both worlds! Drive in one direction, and you can experience Penticton with all it's modern amenities that it has to offer. Drive in another direction, and you get a modern mountain experience that truly offers you a connection with nature.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house truly brings us to a place of peace. It has gorgeous views from every window and allows us to relax at the end of a long day. In the summer, we live outdoors on the main patio upstairs - enjoying BBQing, listening to music and 'drinking in' the beautiful scenery!
