The room was perfect. My wife and I stayed there for a week during an emergency. Barb and Garry made us feel welcome and right at home. The room was spotless, the view was fantastic, and the breakfasts were filling (so my son tells me as he had my share as well as his own). Barb and Garry helped us... More

The last stop on a 10 day trip through 4 cities, staying at Barb & Gary's was such a delight. The food was fantastic, the bed comfortable, and the hosts were delightful. They made me feel like an old friend come to visit. There were plenty of deer in the area and the views are spectacular. I wish I had... More

My husband Gary and I travelled to Penticton from Winnipeg this past September 2015 and we were very fortunate to stay at the Above the Beach B&B. It was the first time returning home to the Okanagan in 18 years. We were greeted by Barb and Gary the moment we arrived and welcomed into their home as if we were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Above the Beach. Barb & Gary were very welcoming and we loved our room - one of the Carriage Houses. It was so relaxing to lie on / in bed with the french doors open and the sun streaming in. As is consistently mentioned breakfasts are very tasty and indulgent and the view from... More

We were happy to have a day that we could join you for wine touring. Your wine knowledge was great to hear. It is always nice to be able to share our local wine producers with guests. We look forward to your next stay. More

My husband and I visit the Okanogan Valley annually and Above the Beach is our favorite place to stay. I think we have now stayed in every room at least once. All the rooms are charming, but my favorite is the Pond side. The view from almost anywhere on the property is amazing, the food is not only delicious, the... More

This is a B&B I wouldn´t recommend to my worst enemy. The only thing I liked about it and which I feel obliged to give credit to was the view from the terrace, above the orchard - wonderful indeed. But everything else came close to a nightmare. As soon as we arrived, dead tired after many hours of driving, we... More

Hello Oana and Katalin. I am extremely saddened to read your post. It is never our intention to have people feel as poorly as you say you did. Our normal procedure is to greet people at the door and then show them their room. We then ask them to settle in and then make their way to the dining room... More

We found the B&B easily and it proved to well located for getting around Penticton as well as easy access to both wine areas. The room was well appointed, perhaps a tad small, but the bed was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts were a tour de force - you can't miss them. Barb and Gary are great hosts with tremendous knowledge... More

Above the Beach B & B is on a quiet cul-de-sac above Skaha Lake. We stayed four nights, in two different rooms. They were both very nice and well appointed. Gary and Barb were the most accommodating hosts! We really felt like we were visiting family. Often times B & Bs have a lot of rules and the hosts are... More
