Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My husband and I purchased this house in a bit of paradise many years ago, we love all of the wonderful things that the Okanagan has to offer. Penticton in particular has kept it's laid back country charm, with it's many local artisans and Farmers markets. We are always inspired to cook a great meal when we can pick up the fresh local fruit and produce, right from the farmers markets and roadside stands. When sightseeing in the area we enjoy cycling the old Kettle Valley Railway line and stopping at vineyards along the way for a sip of wine or lunch at a Winery Bistro where the food is fresh with local ingredients. We like the excitement of the festivals, and sporting events throughout the summer; Peach Festival, Wine Festivals, and the Penticton Challenge Triathlon. We have explored country roads that lead to little hidden beaches on the way to the village of Naramata to enjoy some solitude and although it is nice to venture our favorite beach is still the one closest to our cottage, with it's clear water soft sand and pleasant temperature (especially in August) My husband enjoys the steam train in Summerland that takes you for a ride over one of the many high trestles spanning Trout Creek Canyon and on the return it has been a tradition to stop at Summerland Sweets for an Ice-cream cone in the orchard. My son and I like fishing and have caught many beautiful fresh trout, while fishing the many lakes, in the area to BBQ on the deck. Some amazing views can be seen of the lake and the valley when climbing Giants head mountain or Skaha Bluffs this scenery would make anyone want to become a photographer. We have many more places to see and never get tired of going to this beautiful place. This year we are celebrating our 14th anniversary sharing our vacation home with guests and we hope you enjoy our Cottage and the Okanagan as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Penticton, BC, Canada:
Why did we choose this house? It had everything we needed to feel comfortable on our vacation time. It's great location and proximity to the beach and all other community facilities, restaurants, shopping and events. We like that the house although not large it has an open feel with the patio extending as our outdoor living space a private place to enjoy meals and wine underneath the branches of the Cherry Tree. The kitchen is a very efficient work space with lots of cupboard space. The extra bedroom downstairs is always a bonus for guests.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This year the south Okanagan was rated the worlds 2 most renowned wine regions. Not only this also one of Canada's best beaches with fine pink sand perfect warm temperature for swimming during June July and August. The unique benefits of this house are that if you do not have a car and do not mind walking a short distance you wouldn't need one at all.
