Spent 4 days here at the end of June. The room was beautifully decorated and had a great view of Penticton. We got to know the hosts, Barb and Garry, over a few glasses of wine, when their generosity and warm attitude shone through. All round a fantastic place to stay. Only slight negative was the steep hill upon which... More

Not the easiest place to find, but once found we knew we had checked into a very special B&B in Penticton. Our private balcony over looked beautiful Skaha Lake and our room accommodations were first class. Now for the very best part - Our gracious hosts have a reputation of being first class chef's, they go all out, their breakfast... More

Barb and Gary were very gracious hosts. Our room was beautifully furnished, cozy with a equally beautiful view. The only draw back was not getting to spend much time in it. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the veranda one evening with Barb and Gary and a lovely breakfast that they served us too. They went above and beyond... More

We stayed for 2 nights towards the end of a very busy tour of BC & Alberta & were very pleasantly surprised at what a relaxing area this is & a total contrast from the more northerly National Parks. Check it out. This boutique B & B is lovely. Great attention to detail shows in the decor & fixtures &... More

We had a wonderful stay. It felt like home, the food was amazing and we will recommend our friends to stay here when they visit Penticton. Eating breakfast on the balcony overlooking Skaha Lake with a deer grazing in the garden, was priceless. Thank you again for a memorable visit.

Barb and Garry are amazing hosts at this lovely Bed & Breakfast in the heart of wine country, over looking Skaha Lake in Penticton. Just minutes away from the Naramata Bench, you will enjoy a home cooked breakfast (and not just any ordinary breakfast) and then you can be on your way to some fabulous wineries. When the hosts aren't... More

What a Welcome! When your host's opening line is "here's your key. Drop your bags then join us in the house for a drink and the paperwork", you know you're onto a winner. Barb & Garry have owned their luxury accommodation for a long time, and they just keep improving it. Whether it's from taming the enthusiastic foliage to continually... More

Very pleased with Above the Beach. Our room was very nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. The shower (steam) was fantastic. The hosts are very friendly and provide a great breakfast. We spent quite a bit of time in the yard, reading. Note that you can't easily walk to the beach from here (we didn't want to anyway) and it's a... More

Barb and Gary are warm and welcoming hosts. Then Emerald room is our own little paradise! The food and hospitality are awesome! Lovely grounds to explore, and an out of this world view of the valley. Just a short 2 minute drive to Skaha lake to take a cool dip in the evening. See you again soon!

I booked this B and B based on the excellent reviews; and was not disappointed. Actually, it exceeded my expectations. Owners Barb and Gary were most charming and thought of every little (and big) comfort a person on holiday might want or need. The breakfast was beyond words. Each morning we were greeted with coffee and tea and sat out... More
