We recently stayed at Serenata Guesthouse for seven nights while visiting our son in Penticton. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find that Colleen was making homemade Gnocchi for guests that evening. Being Italian myself, I don't know of too many people who have attempted to make them successfully. We were very impressed. This was only the beginning. Every... More

As last minute guests, Jake and Colleen fit us into what ever room was available and in fact arranged other accommodation if they were filled up. No wonder they were at capacity in the Naramata high season as all their rooms are beautiful and well maintained. Colleen provides a delicious breakfast which we were able to enjoy with the other...

My husband and I honeymooned in this area 18 years ago, and decided it was time to return. Our room was absolutely beautiful, with a balcony overlooking the lake and valley. We were close to Naramata Bench, and we enjoyed visiting several wineries. Breakfast was delicious. This morning we enjoyed a vegetable omelette with many items picked from Colleen's garden....
