WELCOME TO THE ORCHARD HOUSE
A lovely home for a summer getaway or an Okanagan Hockey School rental. Also great for small groups enjoying the Fall and Spring Wine Festivals.
The orchard house is situated on the West Bench with a sweeping view of Okanagan lake, Naramata Bench, the city of Penticton and Skaha Lake. Enjoy your stay in a quiet peaceful orchard setting of one acre, complete with quail, pheasants and deer.
The house is post and beam construction with a wood-burning fireplace. There is one bedroom with a queen-size bed and bathroom upstairs, and two bedrooms each with a queen bed, and a bathroom downstairs. Also downstairs is a bedroom with two single beds and a den with a queen-size sofa bed.
The kitchen is a full working kitchen with a separate dining area with a view. Art in the house is original prints and paintings created by the owner Jan Crawford. Her latest pieces can be viewed at the Lloyd Gallery on Front Street in Penticton and the Hambleton Gallery in Kelowna. All art is available for purchase - please contact the Artist.

Quiet area only 5 minutes from town. This house is well equiped and has everything one needs to enjoy a holiday away from home. Comfortable for multi-generational use. Views to die for! Good photos of the property, but the "real thing" is even better. Great yard with sheltered patio. We all loved Penticton. We were there for the Ironman competition - appreciated Orchard House location as it's a little removed from the busyness of the town. Members of our group enjoyed the beach, wineries, fruit stands, Theo's restaurant, Kettle Valley Railway, bike trails, grocery stores, thrift shops and antique store.
