I call my little house 'Sonora Sage' after the Sonora Desert which runs from the southern point of Mexico to it's northernmost point in the South Okanagan. Desert weather and vegetation makes the South Okanagan unique in Canada. Desert plants survive and thrive as the summers are hot and usually drier than anywhere else in Canada. Long summers mean that outdoor activities can be enjoyed to the max and all within minutes of our house. Penticton has miles and miles of beautiful beaches, vineyards, orchards and Kettle Valley biking/hiking trails with awesome views of the lakes and mountains. Apex Mountain Resort is famous for it's blue skies and powder snow. Skiing, snowshoeing or outdoor skating are all within 20 minutes of the city. Or, if you just need some solo time to read, meditate or create your next novel you will find our little house the quiet retreat you are looking for.

Penticton is unique.. It is a small town with a lot to offer...clean air, a beautiful fresh water lake at each end of the city,
Summer...hot and deserty. (is that a word?) !
Spring:.. great for walking, biking and hiking, ...Fall brings a huge harvest from the many growers of fresh produce as well as apples, pears and grapes are ready to be picked. The fall wine festival is tops, and crisper weather brings a promise of snow in the mountains for those waiting for their first days of skiing and snowshoeing. Penticton is a friendly and safe community featuring outdoor adventure as well as some great shops, galleries and restaurants. We also have an incredible community centre if you are looking for an exercise class or a swim in the cooler months.
location, location, location!
It's a cosy home away from home
A well appointed residence with a very personable landlord. All the mod cons. Walking distance to the city center and beachfront.
Thanks for a wonderful stay in your cottage. Everything was beautifully appointed and we felt very welcome. We enjoyed walking to the beach and to the restaurants downtown, and spent lovely evenings in the peaceful garden out front. Thanks so much Bryn!
This rental property is fantastic - so close to main street (and the market on Saturday), the beach and the Naramata Bench Wineries. We had the most lovely time during our stay at Sonora Sage and really appreciate everything Bryn did to make our stay wonderful.
If you are reading this review, don't hesitate in booking this wonderful house, you will not be disappointed.
See you next year, Bryn - we'll bring the happy hour treats!
Great place to stay in Penticton. The house has everything you need, a great front courtyard and is walking distance to the beach, the main shopping and restaurant area. We went touring some of the vinyards nearby - really enjoyed our stay.
This was a weekend away for my three adult girls and myself. It was a perfect choice for us. Close to ... the KVR, downtown, restaurants, the beach, wineries. We biked a lot :over 80 km. on the KVR. Walked every where. And always there was this lovely home to come back to !!!
We had happy hour on the patio every day :- ) A reward for working hard.
Thank you Bryn
my 60th was awesome !!!
We had an excellent month long stay at Sonora Sage. It is beautifully decorated, meticulously clean, and has everything one needs to enjoy the comforts of home. The owner is a lovely lady to deal with – she even irons and hangs the extra bed linens! It is an ideal location within walking distance to everything. We especially enjoyed being close to the beach at Okanagan Lake to take our daily walks. We have family in Penticton and enjoyed visiting and skiing with them. We will be back for a month in 2013 and would highly recommend this lovely home!
