Reviewed April 11, 2013

Great Location, walk to downtown and waterfront. Beautiful rooms,comfortable, ,clean, well laid out and full of art work. The whole home and gardens outside are full of artwork. It was such a pleasure to stay here. Kena and Lawrence are friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were incredible. We would highly recommend this B&B.

I stayed here twice while on business in the area. I stayed in both the Garden suite and the Courtyard suite and enjoyed both. The best thing about this place is not just one thing. There is the food...(fantastic)...the hospitality (amazing, I felt as though Kena was an old friend by the end of my stay)...the comfort (so clean and comfy beds. It felt like home)...the location (didn't matter to me too much as I was working, but so close to the beach)...the art (beautiful and unique)...oh, the food! A burly man will enjoy the abundance of delicious food in the morning...I warn you girls watching your weight to eat a light dinner so you're starving for breakfast. :) :):) Thanks so much Kena and Lawrence! It was wonderful. :)

This was our second time at Kena and Lawrence's B&B studio. We stayed 4 nights over Easter (end March/early April 2013) and (as before) loved it! Breakfast was (again) to die for, and the hospitality is warm, welcoming and wonderful. The location is ideal for us, as it is close to the town centre (Kena has fantastic tips on reasonably priced great restaurants and music events), close to Skaha Bluffs (awesome birding and climbing), next to Okanagan Lake and a stone's throw from Skaha Lake. Our hosts went out of their way to make us feel comfy and happy and we felt like family. I can highly recommend staying at this B&B.

Room Tip: There are three rooms: Courtyard Suite, Garden Suite and Lakeside Suite - the Lakeside Suite has the...

This place is really fantastic, down to every detail. The building is incredible, and the rooms are absolutely perfect. The location is ideal and the views are gorgeous. I stayed here for 3 nights in January, 2013, and was more than impressed. Kena and Lawrence are great hosts, who are happy to share as much information about Penticton and the Okanagan as you would like. The breakfasts were really delicious. Honestly, this place was so lovely, and I can't think of one thing that I would have changed! Thanks for having me, Kena and Lawrence! :)

We spent 4 nights at Cormier's Studio in September and loved every moment. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and the linens spectacular. Kena's breakfasts are very delicious and filling. The location is amazing - within walking distance of many attractions and a short cab ride for several of the great restaurants in the area. We have already booked for next year!

What a wonderful getaway! Kena prepares to die for breakfasts that kept us going until late afternoon. They are served in their art gallery/dining room overlooking Okanagan Lake. The suites are spacious with all the amenities you could ever think of, really comfy beds & beautiful linens. The beautiful sunny days were the added bonus. Location is central to everything, we are already booking for next September!

We stayed with Kena and Lawrence for a spur of the moment weekend get-a-way and COULD NOT have been happier! Their home is gorgeous and welcoming, Kena's breakfast are SPECTACULAR. The room was huge and spotless, bed was super comfy, we really could not have asked for anything more.

Have recommended it to friends and family as well as professional contacts with out hesitation.

We got engaged the weekend we stayed here and will always hold very special memories of Cormiers.
