My husband and I were in Penticton for 3 days of business meetings from May 19 to 21. Walking up to Elsie's breakfasts and good humor then coming back in the evenings to the beauty, peace and quiet of KeriGlen got us through some pretty stressful days. The B&B is just 7 minutes from downtown and that made getting to our meetings easy and convenient.
Fortunately, we were able to spend most of May 22 relaxing at KeriGlen and what a treat it was! I spent hours just staring at the view, listening to the birds and feeling right at home.
Elsie took care of us beyond anything I have ever experienced at a B&B. (Fred was out of town, but we look forward to meeting him when we come to Penticton again). She is cheerful, giving, friendly and an amazing cook. Her breakfasts are huge, full of flavor and variety.
The beds are big and comfortable; we slept soundly and loved having the little stocked fridge in our room and our private bathroom.
Guests virtually have full run of the entire upper floor: the dining room, living room and a huge deck with a beautiful outdoor kitchen, hot tub and fire pit sitting area, and, if that isn't enough - amazing views from each of these rooms.
And the views are spectacular - Okanagan Lake and over to Naramata, the town of Penticton and on to a bit of Skaha Lake. On our last day, we watched the clouds drifting overhead and even heard thunder up in the mountains across the lake. So beautiful and peaceful that we didn't want to leave.
Couldn't recommend it more highly.
